Grace & Glory

Now the Lord is the Spirit,

and where the Spirit of the Lord is,

there is freedom.

And we,

who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord,

are being transformed into His image

with intensifying glory,

which comes from the Lord,

who is the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:17-19

Grace 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

HE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH!


The word for today,

“Enough!”

Definition: “adequate for the want or need; sufficient for the purpose or to satisfy desire”


This what I know God to be for me!

He’s all I need!

He’s all I want!

He’s more than enough!

GRACE 3

Ponder on this today. Who can satisfy your every desire? Who can meet all of your needs? Who can save you from all harm? Who can provide, help, and keep you? Who can heal you? Who can restore and uphold you? Who can do miracles too grand to explain? Who never leaves you behind, or forsakes you?

There is only one ENOUGH you will ever need:

His name is God, the Great I Am!

Make Him who sits in the Heavens, whose footstool is Earth, the One to please and call your ENOUGH.

Psalm 84

PSALM 84.11


PSALM 84


*

How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

*

I long, yes, I faint with longing
to enter the courts of the Lord.

*

With my whole being, body and soul,
I will shout joyfully to the living God.

*

Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow builds her nest and raises her young
at a place near your altar,
 O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, my King and my God!

*
What joy for those who can live in your house,
always singing your praises.

Interlude

*

What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord,
who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

*
When they walk through the Valley of Weeping,
it will become a place of refreshing springs.

*

The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings.
They will continue to grow stronger,
and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem.

*

O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, hear my prayer.
Listen, O God of Jacob.

Interlude

*

O God, look with favor upon the king, our shield!
Show favor to the one you have anointed.

*

A single day in your courts
is better than a thousand anywhere else!

*

I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.

*

For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.

*

The Lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.

*

O Lord of Heaven’s Armies,
what joy for those who trust in you.

The Source of Strength

STRENGTH 1

It is only when we put ourselves in the hands of Jesus that we find He is The Source of Strength sufficient enough to overcome the evil within us and set us completely free.

Never Too Broken

BROKEN 1

You’re never too broken to belong to Jesus.  Come to Him as you are. His grace and mercy are amazing.  He will heal you, restoring what was taken from you.  He will redeem you. He will fill that void in your life.  The world makes promises that only God can do.  Trust in Him, and have faith that He shall do what He says.

Life Worthy Of The Gospel

grace-2

Philippians 1:27-30

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God.  For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.”
