Death is not the greatest lost in life…………………
The greatest loss is what dies inside of us while we live.
T.D Jake’s said don’t die with your song inside of you, sing it.
Life is full of ups and downs. We cannot let it get us down.
We must realize God is in control. He holds our future in the palm of His hands.
God intends for us to live our life, to run our race with faith. We must learn to walk by the scripture, not by what we feel or our emotions. We can start by reading, and writing down the scripture, then repeating it to ourselves daily.
I encourage us all to read Psalms 23 when we are at our lowest points.
In this psalms David teaches us that God is our shepherd.
He is our good shepherd.
He is our provider, our protector, our every source.
God leads us to the scriptures but we have a part in all of this as well. We must 1.Listen,2.Read,3.Study,4.Memorize,5.Meditate.
The Lord will feed us ” this day and every day, our daily bread.
Not just once but continuous. Every time the Lord takes us to a pasture of green grass, He gives us food. Daily we receive from God food, protection, a personal relationship and fellowship with God, and strength for every day.
We must come to realize that God is a present help in time of trouble.
David makes it personal because he said the Lord is my shepherd.
Do you realize that the Lord is your shepherd, you and I can commit our needs to Him. He will provide green pastures for me to lie in, he leads you and I beside still waters. He restores my soul when I am empty, He leads me in the right paths for His name sake. He is always with you and I in danger, when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death He is with me. He delivers me from evil, He protects me with His rod and staff, He prepares a table to feed me, so my enemies can see His provision,He anoints me with the oil of His healing. He lets me drink from the full cup of His provisions. Surely goodness and mercy will always follow me, and I will,not maybe, I will live with Him forever.
I don’t know about you, but that gives me hope for my tomorrow.
I stand on His promises, knowing that He will never leave or forsake me.
For all of you that need something to hold onto this week. Grab hold of God’s promises in this psalms, and know that He is a good shepherd that cares for you.No greater love can you ever find,than the love of God.
To God Be The Glory In All Things
