                                                               *****

“Fear not,  for I am with you;
be not dismayed,  for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,  yes, I will help you;
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41 : 10
 

A Happy and Blessed New Year – on this first Day of 2015!
And it will be- as we begin every day with God and his Word!

Today’s text- contains five promises.
Claim it as we walk into the unknown.
The untried paths of another year with confidence and trust.
Meditate on these five promises:-

1.“I am with you.”
Walk with Him in the next 365 days- and expect good things.
For He will show you – “the path of…

“What does– CHRISTmas MEAN?”

cx1

*************

Then the Angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy
which will be to all people.
Today your Savior was born in the town of David.
He is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:10-11

“……The gift of God is eternal life.” Romans 6:23.

This is the time when Christians
around the world remember His birth.
Our heavenly Father’s greatest gift to the world –
was His Son Jesus– and Jesus’ gift is eternal life –
that cost Him His life.

God’s plan for a great family reunion
centers on the Child of Bethlehem.
And there will be a family circle again –
At the second Advent

It was an extra-ordinary night-
with ordinary sheep and shepherds.
They would  have been forgotten
and not recorded in History –
if an angelic host did not appear in the night sky
to announce the birth of Jesus.
The night was not ordinary any more-

As  we celebrate his BIRTH –
let us look forward and rejoice
that soon He will return again-
For another Celebration!

May God bless you all -who have shared in
‘reading my Journal’  this year.
As we celebrate the real reason for – Christmas.
 The blessed gift to the world.

“Worship”….

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

My refuge

“Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name;
worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
Psalms 29 : 2 

All people worship something. –
We simply choose whom or what – we worship!

Someone defined worship – as offering our lives
and all that we are to God each day.
Worship is honor and adoration given to God.

Worship begins with meditation.
As we focus on God’s Word;
we will discover spiritual truth.
Meditation leads to praise –
and giving praise to God is worship
.

The theme of worship runs through the Bible.
The fall of the human race occurred when
Adam and Eve failed in honoring God.
The first murder occurred when Cain failed
to render to God acceptable worship.
The climax of the struggle between good and evil
is an issue over TRUE and false worship.
True WORSHIP – can take place anywhere and at…
