  At all times!


    Let his praise be continually in my mouth. "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalm 34: 1
    At all times, when things are going well with us as well as when the times are not so good; In the valley as well as on the mountain top; in times of famine, as well as in times of feasting; let his praise be continually in our mouth. God is always near us to save and protect, and comfort, and to bring us eventually to our desired safe haven.
    "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom he hath chosen for his inheritance." Psalm 33: 12
    "Behold the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine; Our soul waiteth for the Lord; he is our help and our shield for our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord be upon us according as we hope in thee." Psalm 33: 18-22.

 Wait on the Lord.


    "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say on the Lord." Psalm 27: 14.
    One of the most difficult lessons we must learn as the children of God is to realize that God's ways are not our ways, and God's timing is not our timing. We want things, and we want them now, and even yesterday, if that were possible. God has told us in his word that whatsoever things we have need of , to ask of him and he will provide them for us as he sees fit. God knows and sees the end from the beginning, and the beginning from the end, and he knows what is best for us, and the right time for answering our petitions.
    We know that God will not withhold any good thing from us if it will profit us and bring glory to himself. When we have learned this lesson to wait patiently for God to fulfill his purposes in our lives, then we have great peace and contentment in knowing that however long it takes, God will come to our rescue and meet all our needs.

Thought For Today - June 25 - He Will Swallow Up Death In Victory !

Thought For Today - June 25 - He Will Swallow Up Death In Victory !

 Thought for Today - June 25
 He will swallow up death in victory!

    What a wonderful promise and consolation we have from God our father through the Lord Jesus Christ that: "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall be taken away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it." Isaiah 25: 8-9
    The day will come when God will completely fulfill this promise when our Lord and savior Jesus Christ returns to earth to claim his throne. He is the righteous king to whom all creation belongs. When he comes, death will be abolished, and the sting of death swallowed up in victory. There will be no more need for tears, for in his reign and kingdom there will be no sorrow. His people will no longer be looked upon as the down trodden and outcast of the earth. On the contrary, they will rule and reign with him forever.
    "And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God. We have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord, we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." Isaiah 25:9
    Those of us who have called upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save us have the witness of the Holy Spirit within us which cause us to rejoice in our salvation. We know that all of God's promises are true. We wait patiently and longingly for the great day of the Lord to come, and for Jesus to be crowned King of kings and Lord of lords.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Thought For Today - June 23 -Does God Forget Us ?

Thought For Today - June 23 - Does God Forget Us ?

 

 Visit us online at www.telehelppublications.com

 Thought For Today - June 23
 Does God forget us?

Read Psalm 22: 1-31.

    “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken Me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them." Psalm 22: 1-4.
    Even as David prayed and wondered why it was that it seemed that God had forsaken him in his times of great distress, we sometimes pose the same question.
This prayer of David was a forerunner of the prayer of Christ when he was hanging on the cross. In his humanity he cried out: "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?".
    When we are in pain or troubles, and it seems that no help comes, does it not seem that God has forsaken us? In these times of darkness and desperation we must keep trusting and believing God and we shall be delivered.
    God delivered David from the hand of Saul and made him a great king, and God delivered his own son, the Lord Jesus Christ from the power of the grave, and gave him power over death for all of us. So, even in darkness we must keep our faith in the promises of God and continue to live in the light of his word, and be assured that we will be delivered.

Thought For Today - June 21 -Sweetest Name I Know !

 Thought For Today -June 21
 Sweetest name I know!

    "Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! sweetest name I know,", as the song writer has said: "fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go".
Think of all that Jesus is, and means to us: He is our God - The creator of us all. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1: 1-3.
    He is our savior - our sin substitute. He who knew no sin was made sin for us, and died in our place so that we sinners might be justified and stand righteous before God.
    He is our high priest - He is in the presence of God, the father, always pleading our cause and offering his own blood on our behalf as a sacrifice for us.
He is our advocate - our lawyer in heaven.
    He is our closest relative - our elder brother.
    He is our personal physician - "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies: who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalm 103: 1-5.
    He is our best friend - A friend that sticketh closer than a brother. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
    He is our comforter in times of trouble, and distress and great need.
    He is our tour guide to Heaven. "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by me," Jesus said.
    Jesus is all these things to us and much more. Blessed be his holy name. Could we ever love him and serve him too much for all that he is, and has done for us? I think not.

 O Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!

    "O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him all the earth. Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously." Psalm 96: 9,10.
    May the message of our lives to the world be that God is sovereign, and that he reigneth, and in him alone is salvation. May we be a living testimony to the world around us of the holiness, grace, mercy, and goodness of God in the lives of all who will acknowledge him and trust him.
    "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy." Psalm 107: 2.
    Rejoice because the Lord is coming again as he has promised. He is coming to judge the earth and bring forth righteousness.
    "The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people shall see his glory." Psalm 97: 6.
"Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness." Psalm 97: 12.

 Thought For Today - June 19
 Exalt the Lord our God!


    "The Lord reigneth,; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubim; let the earth be moved." Psalm 99:1
    "Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy." Psalm 99:5.
    We must worship God in spirit and in truth. We worship God in our thought life: by what we think about God. We worship God in our speech: by what we say about God. We worship God by our actions: in what we do to serve God.
    If God is our God, then he deserves our worship. He deserves to be the chief object of our thought life. He deserves to be the chief subject of our conversation. He deserves to be the one for whom we work and perform our duties.
"Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy." Psalm 99: 5.

Thought For Today - June 18 - How Long Lord ?

 Thought For Today - June 18
  How Long, Lord?

    "How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? For ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the Lord because he hath dealt bountifully with me." Psalm 13
    Sometimes when we have problems and trials, it seems that either God has forgotten us and abandoned us forever, or that he doesn't even exist. Satan, our enemy, would like to have us believe his lie. We know that God is true, and that eventually we shall rejoice in our salvation and sing unto the Lord ,because he hath dealt bountifully with us.

Thought For Today - June 17 - Why Sit In Darkness?

Thought For Today - June 17 - Why Sit In Darkness ?

Thought For Today - June 17
 Why sit in darkness?

    "Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most high: Therefore he brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works o the children of men! For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness and for his wonderful works to the children of men! And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters: these see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depth, their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stager like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them to their desired haven." Psalm 107:8-30
    If we are sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, then, we are not in God's perfect will. It is not the will of God for his redeemed to sit in darkness, and to be fearful of living and dying, and being shackled, as it were, in irons by our problems. Christ died and rose again to set us free from our captivity in darkness, and the fear of death, and he took all the bars away. So, why does the child of God still sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and continue to be shackled by worry and cares?  The answer is     because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most high. When we neglect God, when we fail to seek God and to pray, when we do not attend to the word of God and obey it, then we find ourselves sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death, and bound in affliction. But, when we seek the Lord and draw close to him, then he draws close to us and delivers us out of darkness and the shadow of death, and breaks the bonds which hold us captive.

Thought For Today - June 16 - Pray For One Another !

 Thought For today - June 16
 Pray for one another!


    "To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day." 2 Timothy 1:2,3.
    How should we pray for one another? We ought to pray for each other as Paul prayed for Timothy: That God would give to our beloved wife, or husband, or children, or parents, or friends, grace, mercy and peace.  Grace- the  unearned gifts from God. God's unmerited favor, undeserved  forgiveness and pardon, unearned, and undeserved eternal, everlasting life, and undeserved provision for their moment by moment needs.
    Mercy - God's infinite compassion for us -  that is, God not pouring out his wrath and judgments on us when he would be justified and righteous in so doing, also, God's willingness to come more than half way to meet and greet the runaway prodigal and rebellious child, and welcome him back into the family.
Peace-That peace that only God can give to comfort our hearts when we are in the center of his will, a sense of well being, and knowing that everything is all right in our father's house, and so it is well with us who are his children.
    May we learn to pray for one another that God would grant his grace, mercy, and peace Even as Paul prayed for Timothy.
