Nuggets of Truth

God made heaven and earth and everything that ever was and will be in them. Everything we could ever need or desire. And it was very good. He is perfect, could he do any less. I am amazed at all the unique and intricate plants and animals. I believe God was excited to create them. The gorgeous environments and magnificent scenery.

“God blessed them and said to them, ‘be fruitful and increase in number’; Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28

He was so happy to have people to love and he wanted more. Everything was just for them. He thought of everything that we could enjoy. It was theirs to rule over and nurture. Nothing was too good for them.

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning-the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31

It had to be perfect and everything we could ever desire was thought of. At times I just sit and ponder the things in my surroundings, which isn’t much, but each thing has so much pleasure and memories attached. Pictures of my family and special things from people I love. Simple things like my clock. How God created seasons and time to come and go.

“I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, that brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.” Exodus 6:7

If he could just have a special people all his own he would do everything for them and they would love him and obey him out of gratitude. But we are selfish and wicked. We don’t deserve anything but that doesn’t stop him. He still wants that special people to do everything for.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

“I will do it. I am willing to do the hard work for you. I just want your love, says the God.

“The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2

We really need to realize just what we have. He is everything and he does everything and he promises a future because he is our ultimate salvation through his son.

“Who is like you- majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?” Exodus 15:11

The more you get to know him the larger he becomes in your eyes. Just like a jumbo jet is tiny when you look up at it 30,000 miles away. But stand beside it, it is massive. Draw closer to God and see just how big he gets.

“The Lord reigns for ever and ever.” Exodus 15:18

This is the reason I am at peace. Bottom line is that God does have us all in the palm of his hand and he is always working. His will, will be done.

The more I praise you the better life is and the more I want to praise you God.

“Never take your word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws.” Psalms 119:43

I pray in the mornings and proclaim many things he has promised in his word . I will rejoice in the Lord always, for the Lord is Jehovah Jirah my provider and I have everything I need, and Jehovah Rapha by his stripes I am healed , and the Lord is my strength . The Lord keeps in perfect peace those whose minds stay on him. The more I say it the more I believe it.

“You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.” Psalms 119:114

“The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” Psalms 147:11

The Lord is perfect and deserves my respect and admiration. He will never disappoint me or anyone. Once you get that into your head you will realize how the fear of the Lord brings peace not fear.

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that in order that you will know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.” Ephesians 1:18

“For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? Indeed, you are our glory and joy.” 1 Thessalonians 2:19&20

He is all mighty, all wise, patient, merciful, full of grace, always with us everywhere and everything all at the same time. And he offers all to us who believe in him. Nothing can compare.

“But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8

We can guard our hearts and our minds, just reminding ourselves what our faith will do for us.

“so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:7

I am an heir with Jesus and all he gets I get. That is amazing, but God is my dad by adoption and he loves me just as much. This family will live together forever. I like to watch princess movies where some forlorn girl becomes royalty and lives happily ever after with her Prince. Well we get to look forward to that same forever after and it will be even better.
