OPAL'S JOURNAL - "TO KNOW GOD" ......

Change not1

“Our Lord and our God— Without Your help we cannot face the YEAR before us”

“I am the Lord-  All powerful and I never change” Malachi 3:6

God stands between the year past and the one before us.
The Light of His Presence is set before this year ahead of us.
Over the past year He hides our trouble, sorrow and disappointment.
Dwell not on the past only on the present. Store the Blessings from the past.
Encourage yourself by the thought of these.

Bury your fears for the future-  poverty to some-  suffering or loss.
Thoughts of unkindness,  your bitterness and dislikes-
Your sense of failure , disappointments-  your gloom and despondency-
Let us leave it ALL BEHIND and go forward in this New Year.

Remember- not to see the future as the world does.
God holds this Year in His hands –
We have to trust Him.He has promised…

“A SAD DAY..” July 18th 2014!   Leave a comment

Wipe eyes

****

July  18th 2014      

Today is a sad day for the whole world –
as we moan the tragic deaths –
following the Air crash of HM 17-
Malaysian Aircraft – killing all 295 passengers & crew.
Shot down over Ukraine Skies.

****

“Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil;
for You are with me.”
  Psalms 23 : 4

Death is ever present – no matter how or when.
So hard to accept under such circumstances!
What can you say or do to the –
The reaction is panic and disbelief –
How can this happen?

When this accident happened –
only it is NO accident-
it was a planned attack.-
How does the world react??  It is not easy!

When we face death –
everything else becomes quite unimportant.
We can only Pray for the families
who at this time are asking WHY??

May God – through His loving kindness
wrap His arms around those who are heart broken..
We can only PRAY for these families –
that they can get answers for this dreadful loss.

Our thoughts and Prayers are with them –
who have lost loved ones.

Look forward to our heavenly home-
No tears or death or sorrow there!

God’ blessings- Trust in the Lord always-

“GOD’S – GLORY”…   Leave a comment

heavens declare                                                              ****

The Lord, the Lord God,
compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, and abounding in
lovingkindness and truth.”
Exodus 34 : 6

The word “GLORY”-
appears 400 times in Scripture-
so it must be important.

How does Scripture use it –
when it relates to  “God’s Glory”?
In response to Moses’ request
for God to show him .His Glory;’
God used the words –
“Compassionate- gracious- slow to anger-“
gives it a new meaning-
the virtue of– God’s Character.

God’s special “Glory”- is ‘His Character.’
Heaven judges a person’s true value by character-
not by talents, wealth or position.

This is how God shows us how to be people of glory.
It is the HOLY SPIRIT-
that creates God’s qualities in us.

We have daily opportunities to be “glorious people”-
as we develop the same character traits that our Lord has.

‘WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH”.

***

“For you died,  and your life is hidden with CHRIST. in God.”   Colossians  3 : 3

“In Him we live, and move and have our being.”  Acts 17 : 28

When we enter into a saving transaction with Christ
whereby He takes our sin and gives us His righteousness,-
we are perfect in Him.
His demonstration of His unconditional love
wins our love and loyalty in response.
We love Him because He first loved us.”
1 John 4:19

Because we love Jesus we want to please Him,
so as we learn His will, we do it.
His LOVE demonstrated to motivates  our obedience.
But because our “life is hidden with Christ in God,”
– when the Father looks at us He sees Jesus and his perfections.
As long as we abide in Him,
– we are perfect – perfect in Him.

Blessed Sabbath..
