He will be faithful

Not a KJV ancient-language type of person, but this short piece spoke to me powerfully.

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. (2 Timothy 2:19)

Never fear while trial and hardship assail you, for there is a strength on your side. Neither lose courage nor hope as the curse upon life draws its noose tighter upon you, for there is a river of life that overflows on your account. Fear not. Worry not. Fret not. For the Lord knows all those who are His. He will keep His children from the force of His wrath and ever will He protect them from their enemy, Satan. He will be faithful to tend their needs and salve their wounds. We who believe and have departed the way of iniquity are secured in the mercy, peace, and fatherly love that abounds in His family.

God Knows

The following was sent to me. It might encourage you. No idea as to author. I usually don’t pass on anonymous stuff, but here’s an exception —

When you are tired and discouraged from fruitless effort,

God knows how hard you have tried.

When you have cried so long, your heart is in anguish,

God has counted your tears.

When nothing makes sense, and you are confused and frustrated,

God has the answer.

If suddenly your outlook is brighter, and you find traces of hope,

God has whispered to you.

When things are going well, and you have much to be thankful for,

God has blessed you.

When something joyful happens, and you are filled with awe,

God has smiled on you.

Remember that where you are or whatever you are feeling,

God knows.

Can’t whip God

Good for a laugh, makes a point, even though from a denominational doctor.

Several years ago, a drunk staggered into my office, leaned over my desk and said, “I’m going to beat the @#%&@# out of you.” My first reaction was to look him over and evaluate the situation. After doing so I reached the conclusion that I could “take him.” It was then the Holy Spirit took over and seemingly from out of nowhere, the words came out of my mouth, “If you’re not careful I’ll pray God’s wrath down on you.” The drunk then fell back into a chair, looked at me, and said with a drunken slur, “Now, that ain’t fair! I can’t whip Him!” With that the drunk got up out of the chair and walked out of the office. I’ve never seen him since.
