7 Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

8 Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;

Verse of the day – Encourage - (Hebrews 10:25)

Let us always remember that each part of the body of Christ has his part and we should find our gifts and talents and use them to support one another.

Christ set all of us free. It matters not if we are black or white, young or old, rich or poor to Christ Jesus we are all one performing a work until he returns for us.

The wonderful thing about the body of Christ is that at what ever capacity of service God works it all into place. From a person that helps pick up and clean around the church bldg to a high office in the church, Christ kingdom makes no certain distinction between persons. He is not a respecter of persons. The least shall be the greatest and the greatest shall be the least serving one another in love.

His only command is to love one another.

So we can find a place and feel comfortable knowing that we have been called and led by the spirit to do what we do.

Today I thank the living God that I am in a place of such love and should I fall I have those that will help me back on my feet.

Amen

Reflection Passage: (Psalm 88) (My God saves me)

1 Lord, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you.

2 May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry.

3 I am overwhelmed with troubles and my life draws near to death.

4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like one without strength.
5 I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care.

6 You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths.

7 Your wrath lies heavily on me; you have overwhelmed me with all your waves.

8 You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape;

9 my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, Lord, every day; I spread out my hands to you.

10 Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do their spirits rise up and praise you?

11 Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction?

12 Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?

13 But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you.

14 Why, Lord, do you reject me and hide your face from me?

15 From my youth I have suffered and been close to death; I have borne your terrors and am in despair.

16 Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me.

17 All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me.

18 You have taken from me friend and neighbor— darkness is my closest friend.

Verse of the day-Nothing can separate us (part 2) Day 81

 

The way Bible Gateway had this passage was split up verse 38 and verse 39 into two days and I didn’t realize it so yesterday I posted 38-39 together but this is worth a repeat for today. I did change the reflection passage to psalm 34 and everything else but I left the opening paragraphs the same. So here is the second part of nothing can separate us (Part 2)

Nothing can separate us (Part 2)

Dear father recently a loss has been experienced through a death and this scripture has assured me that you are in control of things at all times and know the end of things. We sometimes don’t understand but your spirit will conform us with trust and assurance.

We can always understand the words you have given us for comfort. In any loss or tragedy we can look to this scripture and find our comfort. Today’s scripture is one that I hold on to with assurance that all will be well and in safe hands with your spirit.

This scripture came in the 100 days of the most popular scriptures by Bible Gateway at a proper time. I can know that any loss will be in your direction and your plan. You have promised that those who even read the book of revelation will be blessed and revelation also says at the end that those who have trusted in you have a promise of a new Eden paradise along with a new earth.

Those that have gone before us will be waiting for us. So today I TRUST that all is well and nothing can separate that great love for us and a promise that can  not be broken (Eternal Live with You).

Amen

Reflection Passage: Psalm 34 (God is with us through heartaches)

1 I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.

2 I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11 Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,

13 keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.

14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;

16 but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to blot out their name from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;

20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.

21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.

22 The Lord will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
