Praise for the Lord’s for His Faithfulness 

God is our place of safety and His arms will hold us up forever (Deut 33:27). In God we find peace, love ,abundance, everything that we need. He is our Shepherd and provides all that we need (Ps 23, Mat 6:30-33). When we go through deep waters and troubles, rivers of difficulty, fires of oppression, He is with us. God will not let the enemy destroy us (Isa 43:2). Our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He already carried. He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our peace and well-being fell upon Him, And by His wounds we are healed (Isa 53:4-5).  He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification (Rom 4:25). Jesus set us free, therefore, we do not have to  live in bondage. We have to take the chains off mentally, physically and spiritually. Jesus has already paid in full, His blood covered it all. We do not have to pay twice. All we have to do is accept His gift to us. The devil is a deceiver and liar, so we need to shut the door in his face when he comes around trying to collect on an already paid debt.  In Psalm 100: 1-4 the Word of God encourages us all to “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!  Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.  Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture” Everyday (not just on Saturday or Sunday)- we should “enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name”.

Numbers 6:24-26 NIV

24 “‘“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”

Be blessed, keep God first and keep looking up,

Cheryl
