24 Powerful Bible Promises – Free Scripture Card – W –


Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He’ll strengthen thine heart.

Wait on the Lord, be of good courage

Action required

Many of the promises in the bible require some action for them to be fulfilled. At all times it is a good idea to wait on the Lord and be of good courage because the promise is that our heart will be strengthened in doing so.

The above Scripture quote was taken from Psalm 27 and the author of this Psalm is King David. King David experienced many problems throughout his life; some self-imposed and other problems not of his own doing.  Just like most of his.

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path …

Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies …

I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.

King David had servants and armies to help him out, yet he said that he would have fainted if it wasn’t for his faith in the Lord, and it was the Lord he called upon when he was in a tight spot.

God hears prayer

I absolutely love this particular verse because I used to think that I have to sort all my troubles myself. Eventually life took me to such tight spots where I realised that I cannot sort everything out myself.

The other day I told one of my nearest and dearest that if the problem seems too big or too hard, Our Father in Heaven loves to hear about it.

“Relax,” I said, “God hears all prayer and I cannot think of one request that has not been answered for me.”

My loved one shot back at me with, “God has given you a brain to think for yourself, aren’t we supposed to be using this brain to sort out our own problems?”
Good comeback and I totally agree. Whenever there is any kind of problem, I do whatever I can to sort this myself or with the help of others. Sometimes, however, mere human effort does not seem to cut it. Those are the times that I am super grateful that My Creator has blessed me with a brain that is able to discern which problems to sort out myself and which problems to hand over to Him who knows and sees all. Meanwhile I just pray my little heart out.

24 Powerful Promises

I love all the promises, the words are so powerful. And the reality for me in my life is that all God’s promises are being fulfilled always. Whenever I call upon the Lord I get an answer. That’s why I am so keen to share because, before I started reading God’s Word and relying on His promises my success rate was very much a hit and miss affair. I explained in an earlier post why positive thinking does not work for me.

I’ll share some of my favourite Bible promises. You can let me know what your favourite promises are in the comments below.

Free Scripture Card – V –


Till Heaven and Earth pass …

Verily, verily ... Till heaven and earth pass

Wat does this Scripture Verse mean?

To understand what this Verse means we need to understand what a jot and a tittle is. A jot (in Greek) or yod (in Hebrew) is the smallest letter in the alphabet. And the tittle is the smallest accent or quotation mark used.

In context

When Jesus gave his famous Sermon on the Mount he addressed many of the misconceptions which had been floating around with regards to how people were supposed to be following the law.

“I came not to destroy the law.”

Jesus made it very clear that he had not come to earth to destroy the law; he came to uphold it and show people how it is supposed to be done. In him is no sin.

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

For verily I say unto you,
Till heaven and earth pass,
one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments,
and shall teach men so,
he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
but whosoever shall do and teach them,
the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

For I say unto you,
That except your righteousness shall exceed
the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees,
ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus said, ‘Don’t even break the smallest of the Commandments if you don’t want to get into trouble.’

Amen.

Unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. Free Scripture Card – U –


Unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

I trust in thee

Let me not be ashamed

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
O my God, I trust in thee:
let me not be ashamed,
let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:
let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

Easy to read version of the Bible translates as follows:

Lord, I put my life in your hands.
 I trust in you, my God,
and I will not be disappointed.
    My enemies will not laugh at me.
No one who trusts in you will be disappointed.
    But disappointment will come to those who try to deceive others.
    They will get nothing.

Why I like rainbow colours so much


Why I like rainbow colours so much

Once upon a time

Once upon a time, a long long time ago, God created the heavens and the earth and all that in them is.

Starting from scratch

Then after we well and truly mucked up over and over again, our Father decided to start from scratch. He threw out the spoiled batch, saved some pure seed and here we are today as offspring of Noah and his descendants.

Then God did an amazing thing. What did he do? The Lord made a covenant with our forefather Noah. Our Creator promised Noah and his descendants that never again the earth will be flooded as it was in those days.

The Promise sealed with a bow

And then, and then, the Creator of Heaven and Earth created the most magnificent rainbow in the sky humanity has ever seen. And this bow, God said, is a sign of the covenant between Himself and humanity that He will never flood the earth again as it was in those days. Alleluia!

If that is not reason to smile and laugh, I don’t know what is.

That is why I like rainbow colours so much; they remind me, as they are supposed to, that despite our failings, God won’t ever flood the earth again.

This is a true story, I did not make it up. You can check it out for yourself at Genesis 5-9 in the Holy Word.

Take no thought for tomorrow, free Scripture Card – T –


Take no thought for tomorrow …

Take no thought for tomorrow

 

In His Sermon on the Mount Jesus explains how lilies grow and birds are taken care of without worrying about tomorrow because their Creator is taking care of them.

Jesus tells us not to worry about tomorrow because our Father knows our needs and will take care of them as long as we seek Him and His righteousness first.

That works just fine for me.

 

Somewhere in my library I have a sweet little ditty about not worrying. I’ll dig it up and will share it with you as soon as I find it.
