***”God Favored Me” – Song on YouTube by Hezekiah Walker***

3/2/23 This song could relate to so many people in need of encouragement. All of the words don’t relate to my specific situation, but there’s something good in this song for everyone. I think its neat the way Hezekiah talks through some of the singing, and he is happy to tell people that God has delivered him in many trials. Enjoy this song “God Favored Me”

**Proverbs 8 For a Power Boost!**

2/26/23 Reading Proverbs 8 is something that I have found to be very rewarding. I always loved reading about wisdom and how it was set in place before the horizon of the earth, the deep, and how wisdom has been “appointed from eternity”…

24″When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;25before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,26before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world” (Proverbs 8:24-26)

In the chapter, wisdom is referred to allegorically, symbolically, and given personification as if it were a being itself, and even a woman, at that! (Proverbs 8:1-2)

One time I was at a bible study, and I recalled this chapter, and the ladies and I spoke together about how if we were to meditate on the strength that can be drawn from wisdom in this chapter, we might get stronger ourselves!

Below I have copied and pasted chapter 8 NIV MIT (see Proverbs 8 NIV Web.MIT.edu) of Proverbs:

Proverbs 8

1 Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?

2 On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;

3 beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud:

4 “To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.

5 You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding.

6 Listen, for I have worthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.

7 My mouth speaks what is true, for my lips detest wickedness.

8 All the words of my mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse.

9 To the discerning all of them are right; they are faultless to those who have knowledge.

10 Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold,

11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion.

13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.

14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have understanding and power.

15 By me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just;

16 by me princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. [1]

17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

18 With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.

19 My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver.

20 I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice,

21 bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full.

22 “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works, [2][3] before his deeds of old;

23 I was appointed [4] from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began.

24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;

25 before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,

26 before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world.

27 I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,

28 when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,

29 when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.

30 Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,

31 rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.

32 “Now then, my sons, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways.

33 Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it.

34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.

35 For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD.

36 But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.”

“Come To The Table” – Song for Communion by Martin Nystrom

2/22/23 This song, below, would be a great song for communion. I think this is a reverent and yet, intimate song for worship. I noticed at the end the singer, the leader who was in the recording invited people to communion. What is communion or what is “taking communion? “Taking Communion” is when Christians eat a piece of unleavened bread (in various forms) representing Christ’s body, and they drink a sip of wine or grape juice, representing Christ’s blood sacrifice. This is done ni a reverent way, because Jesus’ body was sacrificed, broken, and his blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. See Brittanica’s Last Supper/Communion.

It is an important thing to do. I think it helps us remember Christ’s death until he returns. Here is a reference for it, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25, alluding to the last supper Jesus had with his disciples before going to the cross. Communion is a mysterious practice. I realize that in Satan worship, the devil worshippers sometimes drink the blood of sacrificed animals or humans. But God is holy, and He wills for us to drink a representation of the blood of His Son, the blood that saves, cleanses, and reminds us that the LORD never intends to bring harm to anything.

Communion – This song would be a great song for that. Short but sweet!


Verse of the Day And Isaiah 40 – Enjoy!

2/22/23 Our God is a comforter, and a consolation for the whole soul.

Image by woody93 from Pixabay

I had a verse of the day email, and it was for verses Isaiah 40:30-31, but I ended up reading the chapter, and not being sorry that I did.
Isaiah 40 (NIV this time)
1 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD ; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
A voice says, “Cry out.” And I said, “What shall I cry?” “All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
7 The grass withers and the flowers fall because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem,lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”
10 See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
13 Who can fathom the Spirit of the LORD, or instruct the LORD as his counselor?
14 Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding?
15 Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
16 Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.
17 Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.
18 With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him?
19 As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it.
20 A person too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot; they look for a skilled worker to set up an idol that will not topple.
21 Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
23 He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
24 No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
25 “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
27 Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”?
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

“Jesus Revolution” – Movie Coming to Theatres Soon

2/20/23 There is a film coming out soon that is about the Jesus Revolution, which I think is also known as the Jesus Movement, this is the write-up from IMDB. It looks like it could be a good story, based on true historical events. I have dear friends that were on the Tennessee side, but this movie is based on California history.

“The true story of a national spiritual awakening in the early 1970’s and its origins within a community of teenage hippies in Southern California.”

Follow the link to see the IMDb ratings and write-up, and I think there’s a trailer to the movie on it, a short blip of the recording of the movie.
