Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Isaiah 58:8 NKJV
DAY 171 of 365BIBLE @ ••••••••••••••inJesusName.net•••••••••••••••••Verse 11b- No good thing does he withold from those who walk uprightly.
Ok make sure when you read this one...you don't think, "God says He will give me everything I want if I just walk uprightly." No....no He won't. Just try using this verse with Stephen in that way as they were stoning him to death....I am thinking stoning is something Stephen wished God would have withheld. But for God's great purpose, the stoning was a good thing.....which means with God we MUST redefine "good". What's good to God and good to us are VASTLY different things. Using this example, I am confident MANY came to a saving faith in Jesus because of Stephen's stoning. You can see from Acts 7:59-8:1 that because of what happened to Stephen, the believers in Jesus scattered out of fear....and so this event was the beginning of the gospel traveling to the world. I would say, it was a pretty "good" thing that Stephen was stoned to death then...wouldn't you?
And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. And Saul approved of his execution. And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. ••••• READ THE FULL BLOG POST @ inJesusName.net and subscribe there for FREE to get the blog delivered straight to your email!•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Did you know that soldiers who went to war in those days, wore thier shield on their upper left shoulder, thereby leaving their right side vulnerable and unshielded from darting arrows?
King David being a valiant warrior who won many battles, understood the importance of the armour more than anyone, however he also knew more than anyone that it was God who called the victory of any battle.
Which prompted him to say this:' The Lord is your shade at your right hand!' Psalm 121:6
The 'left side' represents our strengths,wisdom, qualifications, achievements, our best laid out plans and basically everything we often rely on which sadly often becomes an entrapment as we lean on our own strengths or other people instead of on God.
But when disappointments, failure or pain hits our vulnerabilities, we realize that even the best plans sometimes fail and we are only as strong as our weakest link, but when your succour is God and you make him your shade at your right hand, you can say 'I have set the Lord always before me because he is at my right hand...I shall not be moved!

The song means so much to me as it reflects one of the stages in my personal walk with God. I would like to acknowledge and thank my producer Claude Cozens for capturing the essence of the story it tells by producing it's music with such excellence!
DAY 169 of 365BIBLE @ ••••••••••••••inJesusName.net•••••••••••••••••Wow what a powerful psalm of repentance this one is! Clearly enemies have come and destroyed the sanctuary due to Israel's disobedience and Asaph is pleading with God to rise up and come to their aide. Look how from verses 12-17, the psalmist reminds himself and us of Who God is and that He can do anything because He made everything. Sometimes this is exactly what we need to do when we feel that we are being overwhelmed by the enemy, Satan. Remind yourself that God owns the day and the night...He hung the stars in the sky and formed the earth. Satan has done NONE of that...in fact his power has been crushed by our Jesus already. Satan is just clamoring right now...and God will soon return to completely destroy him. Ask God to arise right now and defend your cause...we live in very dark times, full of violence, scoffing, and mocking...but Jesus IS coming back. Don't stop looking up......it is supposed to get worse right before it gets MUCHHHHHH better. Verses 9-10-
We do not see our signs; there is no longer any prophet, and there is none among us who knows how long. How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever?
Nope, he won't.....Jesus is coming soon...even if you don't see signs of Him.....HE IS COMING! ••••• READ THE FULL BLOG POST @ inJesusName.net and subscribe there for FREE to get the blog delivered straight to your email!•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
Hello God's people, I want you to know for certain that the One inside of you is incomparably greater than any situation you could ever face.
God's word assures us that we have overcome, notice the choice of tense. He didn't say you will overcome but you have. To enable us walk in that victory is the realization that this victory is only because of the power at work in us, the One living in us.
So the most important thing to ask is never how you'll come out of the situation or if you ever will but, "is God living in me?" "Do I carry God?" If the answer is yes, then you have no right to worry! No reason to fear!
You see my friends that the situation is to your favour!
Go and overcome.
Do you know who you really are? You're a Prince/Queen,You're from a Royal home,You're Precious in the eyes of your Father in Heaven, You're Peculiar dearly loved by The King Himself, You're christ in a Human body that means no limit to your Greatness, You're always on top, You're a blessing that produces blessings.Hallelujah #christinme#christlife#lovebyGod.
Where you are might not be where you *want* to be today. You might desire another season, another location, another vocation, or another situation. Life is not about getting to the next thing, it’s about finding Jesus in the current moment and learning contentment in Him. Paul said it well in Philippians 4:11-13, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Contentment isn’t a natural response; it’s a learned one that can only be learned at the feet of Jesus. It isn’t about having more or having less or being in a different season; it’s about having Jesus.⠀
The secret that Paul learned wasn’t to look ahead, it was to look down where his feet were at that present moment and see Jesus’ faithfulness right there. The secret, as Elisabeth said, is “Christ in me.” Christ is in you today, sister. He is with you and He is for you. The secret is knowing Him.- @gretchensaffles#wellwateredwomen#Christinme#bedeeplyrooted
