The Love of the Lord ~ Inspired by Morning and Evening written by Spurgeon

As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the loving kindness of the LORD is from everlasting
To everlasting on those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children,
To those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.
~ Psalm 103:15-18 ~

Throughout your life, it is easy to look back and ponder all the experiences you have been through–The good times and the bad. The joyful times and the sorrow filled times. The times you had an abundance of blessings and the times where life seemed void of any necessity. No matter the experiences, God has always been there, gently speaking His life into your heart and soul, surrounding you with His never-ending love and guiding you through every walk of life, be it the wilderness moments or those in green pastures.

Take comfort in knowing that God’s grace has been sufficient throughout your life. Look back in remembrance of His love for you and all that He has done to make the you beautiful, strong, and courageous person you are today.

As Spurgeon stated so eloquently:

” ‘For I am persuaded, that neither death;
nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’
Now, soul, is not thy love refreshed?
Does not this make thee love Jesus?
Doth not a flight through illimitable plains
of the ether of love inflame thy heart and compel thee
to delight thyself in the Lord thy God?
Surely as we meditate on ‘the love of the Lord,’
our hearts burn within us,
and we long to love him more.”

May you feel the Love of God from now into eternity, knowing that he holds you always in the palm of his hand! All my love ❤

What I Know

A new year, a new creation doesn’t mean life will be easy or mellow. No matter the storm, no matter the doubt in your heart, no matter the draining of strength, no matter the feeling of fear, no matter your mixed thoughts, God is the same always–yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He will never leave you, never forsake you, never stop fighting for you, never give up on you. Stand strong, be still, and know that He is God! All my love ❤

From my distress I called upon the LORD;
The LORD answered me and set me in a large place.
The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?
Psalm 118:5-6

You are from God, little children, and have overcome them;
because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4

What then shall we say to these things?
If God is for us, who is against us?
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all,
how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
Who will bring a charge against God’s elect?
God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns?

Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised,
who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Romans 8:31-34

“The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you.
He will not fail you or forsake you.
Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Deuteronomy 31:8

For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

Simple, yet True…God is with YOU!

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

God is glorious, victorious in all.   He provides grace sufficient to cover the worst of sins (2 Corinthians 12:9).  He constantly shelters those who trust and seek him (Isaiah 25:4, Psalm 91:4, Psalm 28:7).   He builds the nations up and burns them down according to his good and righteous plan (Ezekiel 36:36, Proverbs 15:25, Acts 17:26).   He is the be all, end all (Revelation 1:8, Revelation 22:13).   He is Creator of the universe (Genesis 1:1), the maker of every human who walks the earth (Genesis 2:7, Isaiah 45:12).   He knows you by name, every hair on your head, and the number of days set for you (Isaiah 43:1-7)!   He knows your thoughts before you do (Psalm 139:2, Proverbs 15:3)!   He thinks of you more than the grains of sand that exist on earth (Psalm 139:17-18)!   You are the apple of His eye (Psalm 17:8, Zechariah 2:8)!   How special and dear you are to him, so much so that he rejoices over you (Isaiah 62:5, Zephaniah 3:17)!

A thought to always hold tight to–you were created on purpose for a purpose (Ephesians 2:10).   There are no coincidences in this world, only orchestrated events that lead each and every heart through God’s good and glorious plan!

Have faith, hold tight to peace knowing God has you always and will never let you go..for you are His and He is yours.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

God bless and keep you always and may your trust in the Lord draw you closer to His presence and glory! All my love ❤
