Bible Blessing-125

 DBB-125

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6,7)


There are many situations that bring anxiety into our lives, but Paul the Apostle, exhorts the believers in Philippi and also us, by saying......."in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made to God." 
Every time we sit in the presence of the Lord, we can think about all the things (situations, problems, difficulties) that bring anxiety in to our hearts, and we can present all these in the presence of God, with prayer, petition and thanksgiving. And what happens when we do that?...The Apostle continues by writing........And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

In the Old Testament of the Bible, we read of a wonderful promise God gave his children....
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10)

God has established a covenant of peace with you if you have accepted the gift of salvation that he has provided through his son Jesus Christ. His love for you is unfailing and his covenant of peace will never be removed from you because he is an unchanging God.

The Psalmist sang, "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. (Psalm 94:19)"

If you are distressed or anxious about any matter this day, remember that God's unfailing love and his covenant of peace will sustain you and bring consolation to your soul.

So......Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

Bible Blessing-124

 

 
Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. (Psalm 4 : 1)
 
David the psalmist, cries out to the Lord for deliverance from them who hate him; from them who want to turn his glory into shame. He cries out to God and tells Him that he needs an answer. He calls out to his righteous God and prays, “Give me relief from my distress, be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”
 
Our God is a prayer answering God and He is the one who brings relief in all our distresses. Every believer should, without fail, pray to the Lord, worship Him and meditate on His word, each day. This should be something we should never forget or ignore. If you seek deliverance, if you want a healing, if you want to feel God’s presence in your life continually, call out to him, cry to him for mercy and he will hear. Seek his face. He is a rewarder of those who seek him diligently. Find a time period in your daily schedule where you can spend quality quiet time with the Lord. For some it may be the early mornings, for some as they retire after a day's work. Of course we can pray and call out to him at any time of the day or night. And we can pray at all times, wherever we are; whether we are at home, whether we are at our workplace, or while travelling, We can pray and approach the throne of grace with confidence. 
 
The Apostle Paul once said, "The Lord has delivered us from many perils, and He will deliver us again." Has not God answered your prayers in the past? He will do it again. Call out to him. He is a merciful God, a compassionate God; he will surely answer your prayers. Spend time in prayer, spend time in worship and spend time in meditation of the word and the Lord will bless you abundantly.
 
David was in several perilous situations and his righteous God delivered him. He is your righteous God too. He will give you relief from your distresses too. Praise his holy name.

Bible Blessing-123

 DBB-123


He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the Lord, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him. (Ezra 7:6)
 
One of the special things about this man, Ezra, we read in Ezra 7:10..... For Ezra had devoted himself to the study and observance of the Law of the Lord, and to teaching its decrees and laws in Israel. 
 
Something that every child of God should do is devoting themselves to the study and observance of God’s word. Not only studying and doing the things that are written in the Word of God are important, but, we, as we gain adequate knowledge, must also teach others who are new to the faith, what we have learnt. God expects that from each of us. Of course, in the initial stages of our life as believers, we may not be able to do it, but as we grow in the faith, and as we devote ourselves to the study and meditation of the Word of God, we can start teaching receptive hearts, what God requires them of their lives. 
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations" was what Jesus told his disciples, and they went out, to different parts of the world and that’s how countless people came to know that Jesus Christ is Saviour of the world and that salvation can be received by believing in his atoning sacrifice on the cross. Ezra devoted himself to the study of the law of the Lord. We must ask ourselves how much time we meditate on the Word of God because that’s very important in our life as a believer. The psalmist says, "I have hidden your teachings in my heart." 
In Psalm 1, we also read of the blessedness of a person who continually meditates on the Word of God.....
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. (Psalm 1:3)
Have you been ignoring reading the Word and meditating on it? Take a decision this day to devote quality time to the study of the Word of God. Obey what the Word says, and as you mature in the Word, make it your duty to teach others also the same.
 
Regarding Ezra, the Bible says, "the hand of the Lord his God was on him.....so will it be in your life too, if you delight in God's Word, obey it and also teach others the same.

Bible Blessing-122

 DBB-122

The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you. 
"I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Haran. (Genesis 12:1-4)


These verses show the obedience of Abraham. He was called Abram (exalted father) at first and then God changed his name to Abraham (father of many nations). When God told him to leave his country, his people and his father’s household, and go to the land that He would show him, Abraham was obedient and set out with faith. And when God called him, God gave him many promises and these promises were fulfilled in his life and the generations that came after him. If God calls you to be a part of his kingdom, he has a specific purpose in mind and he will bless you if you are obedient to Him. 

The writer of the book of Hebrews says,
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. (Hebrews 11:8-10)

Abraham was 75 years old when God called him and he did not hesitate to obey the Lord. This day, I want to exhort you to be obedient to the Lord. He will fulfill the promise/promises that He makes/has made to you. He will not only bless you, but also your family. Be obedient to the Lord and allow him to fulfill whatever he desires through you for his kingdom.
