Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
As we lay down the yoke of our burdens and replace them with the knowledge of Jesus, our soul comes into rest.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and he shall lift you up.
When we forfeit our own power and rely on the power of God, He lifts us to heights we could not imagine.
When a mans ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
May our ways be pleasing to you Lord, that we may be at peace with all.
And he that was dead came forth bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them; “Loose him and let him go “.
Let us remove the gravesclothes that keep us bound to our old life.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
As great as the love of the Lord for His people, is the strength of His power to save us.
Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Last weekend at The Ranch House, the sky was beautiful. Clouds that looked like feathers graced the afternoon sky. They reminded me of Psalm 91 and prompted this week’s summer repost.
Prayer From Psalm 91
… . . even so we speak not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.
The approval of God is infinitely more valuable than the approval of any man.
Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come.
When we live our lives joined to Jesus the old is passed away. We are made new by the mighty power of His love.
Let your speech be alway with grace seasoned with salt that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
May our words be so filled with grace that others are hungry to hear.
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Things look different when we view them with an attitude of thanks.
