The Lord Watches Over You

The Lord Watches Over You

Psalm 121

"I lift up my eyes to the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip-
He who watches over you will not
indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you-
the Lord is your shade at your
right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm-
He will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your
coming and going
both now and forevermore.

(Psalm 12: 1-8)

We can sleep peacefully knowing fully well that the Lord watches over us. He neither sleeps nor slumbers and will never let even our foot to slip. Thus is the protection covered by the Lord to His children who obey His will and follow His path. Joy and blessings will be theirs forevermore.

Do Not Love The World

"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world- the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does- comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever."

(1John 2: 15-17)

We can be in this world but not of this world. We can treat this world as just a temporary place we pass through as pilgrims and strangers, for our final destination is our Father's kingdom where the Lord has prepared a place for each of us. The works of this world are sinful and corrupt just like rust that slowly corrupts the metal until it is no longer good for anything but is just thrown away as scrap. Though we may suffer for awhile as we undergo persecutions and trials, they will soon pass away as we approach the light of the glorious abode of our Lord which we will someday share with Him. In the meantime, we persevere and practice patience as we await the return of our Lord Jesus Christ who will fetch us with the loud voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God.

You Are My All In All

Jesus Christ Is The Vine, We Are The Branches

"I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He trims clean so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me."

"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you. This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."

(John 15: 1-8)

We are all branches of the true vine who is Jesus Christ. If we remain in Him and He in us, we will surely flourish, grow and bear much fruit. But if we separate ourselves from Him we will soon shrivel and die. Jesus Christ is the true vine from whom we get all our sustenance in life. But like a true gardener, He sometimes has to prune us so that we will become more robust and fruitful. The pruning process is painful while it last, but after the pruning is done and we are trimmed of our excess leaves, we start to grow more fruitfully and abundantly until we become a big tree that bears much fruit and offer shade to all the small creatures of God.

Jesus Christ Humility And His Eventual Exaltation Over All Creation Of God

"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality
with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human

And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient to death-
even death on the cross!

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."
(Philippians 2:5-11)

When the Lord returns to earth and at the judgment day, everybody- saved and unsaved and even Satan and his minions, will be required to kneel down and bow before the King of kings and the Lord of lords- Jesus Christ, the Alpha and the Omega. He left this world in shame and dishonor. He will return to this world in triumphant power, glory and honor together with the entire angelic host to judge the living and the dead. Only those whose names are written in the Book of Life will enjoy eternal bliss with Him in heaven. All those whose names are not written in the Book of Life shall be cast to the lake of fire to suffer eternal death and damnation with Satan and his minions.

Rejoice In The Lord

"Rejoice in the Lord.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your request
to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends
all understanding, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true,
whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable- if anything is
excellent or praiseworthy- think
about such things."

Philippians 4:4-8

Whatever our situations maybe in life, we must always rejoice in the Lord. For we know that we have an inheritance that far outweighs all that the world can offer, and that is, eternal life with the Lord. Let us always focus on God's presence in our lives, the countless blessings He has bestowed upon us and the everlasting peace that He has placed in our hearts which nobody can take away from us. In order that we may not be off tracked by the allures and traps of this world, let us only think of positive thoughts mainly centered on the Lord and we will have a peaceful and abundant life on earth. Never allow our minds to be occupied by negative thoughts fed to us by the enemy but only glorious thoughts about the Lord and His kingdom.

We Are A New Creation (Easter Message)

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ
he is a new creation; the old has
gone, the new has come!

All this is from God, who reconciled
us to Himself through Christ and
gave us the ministry of reconciliation;

That God was reconciling the world to
Himself in Christ, not counting men's
sins against them. And He has
committed to us the message of reconciliation.

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors,
as though God were making His appeal
through us.
We implore you on Christ's behalf:
Be reconciled to God.

God made Him who had no sin to be sin
for us, so that in Him we might become
the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5: 17-21

We are a new creation. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Jesus Christ. So let us throw away our old sinful self. It is already dead in sins. We are now gloriously alive in Christ's righteousness, love and joy.
