The Look of Love

Psalm 67:1 – “God be merciful to us and bless us, And cause His face to shine upon us.” May God be merciful to us and bless us, and look on us with kindness, truly show us His favor and smile on us. What beautiful words which express our desire to experiment the tender mercies […]


The Boast that Boosts the Soul

Psalm 34:2 – “My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad.” It is common to hear people boast about themselves: their achievements, ideas, plans, earnings, the list goes on. But the sweetest feeling is from a heart that gladly rejoices and boasts in the Lord, […]


The Absolute God

Psalm 23:1 – “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Other versions of the same verse say “ I have all that I need; I will never be in need; I shall want nothing; I lack nothing.” Nothing means not any thing, it represents an absolute.  And ‘absolute’ means very great or to the […]


The Song God Likes

Psalm 101:1- “I will sing of mercy and justice; to You, O Lord, I will sing praises.” Isn’t it wonderful to know that our God loves to hear us sing?  Music and singing were a cherished part of Israel’s culture and a number of times in the Bible people sang songs of joy, love, thankfulness, […]


Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

Ephesians 1:3 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ”.

Romans 10:9 – “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” “And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them:Then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, […]


Jesus the Attorney

Romans 8:34 – “Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” One of the worst feelings we can have is guilt.  And for us to feel guilty, there has to be an accuser. […]


Trust God – Not Men

Jeremiah 17:7 – “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord.” “Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.” (Psalm 2:12) “Blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust, who has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.” (Psalm 40:4) […]


A God Who Waits For You

Isaiah 30:18 – “Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.” When we ride behind a public bus we see people running […]


Happiness From Above

Proverbs 28:14 – “Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.” One man in the Bible is mentioned a few times for having a hardened heart: the Egyptian Pharaoh who repeatedly rejected Moses’ pleas to release the people of Israel who were in slavery. Pharaoh’s […]
