I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

Do you need a sleeping pill at night? Have you ever tried the Word of God? It is lots better than any brand of sleeping pill you have used.

Oh, how wonderful God’s Word is for us today, and how much it will mean to God’s people in that coming day of trouble.  So, if you want a peaceful night’s rest, stay in His Word.

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:9–10

Jesus Christ is the Way. He is the only Way. He is the Way out for you and He is the Way in for you. He has come to bring us an abundant life.

The thief comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy. I think this is a test you can apply to a church, a religious organization, a radio or television program. Is it a religious racket? Is somebody getting rich out of it? Compare it to the Good Shepherd who came to save sinners and to give us life, abundant life.  God wants to bless us with more when He saves us.  I’m glad that God never settles for less.

There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?  John 6:9

Jesus has a way of taking our “little” and making it “a lot.” The key is we must give it all to Him.  We can’t hold back on God and then expect Him to make things work.  Andrew was wandering through the crowd saying, “Look at all these people that need to be fed!”  Philip says the money in the treasury won’t feed them.   But Andrew says all he’s found is a little lad with five barley loaves and two small fish. The young lad was willing to give his all, and Jesus took His all and worked a miracle.  Do you want Jesus to work a miracle in your life?  If you do, give your ALL to Him!

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  Psalm 27:1

 

We shouldn’t worry about the direction we are headed because the Lord is the one who directs and guides us by the light of His Word.  Aren’t you glad that God loved us so much that He provided salvation for sinners?  He not only gives life, He also empowers us to live life on earth.  Is He the light of your life, the one who loves you and gives you strength?  If your answer is yes, you have no reason to be afraid.  Martin Luther summed it up best – One with God is a majority.  Whom shall I fear?  When you fear God, you have no one else to fear.

Let every thing that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise ye the Lord.  Psalm 150:6

 

We should praise the Lord simply because the wonderful sunshine we are enjoying is His.  He is the Creator.  There’s not a thing at our fingertips He didn’t make.  Scriptures say a day is coming when everything that has breath will praise the Lord.  So, why not go ahead and give God the praise He so deserves because He’s worthy to be praised.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.  Psalm 30:5b

 

We know in this life we will encounter trials, problems, and temptations.  The wonderful thing is even though these situations may come, they don’t last always.  Scientifically, it’s a fact that the sun is going to rise at the appropriate time.  Just as we are sure of this, we know that joy comes in the morning if we hold on and hold out.  Remember that it doesn’t matter what you’re going through because joy comes in the morning.

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.  Philippians 4:4

We must understand that this is a commandment to a Christian, a believer.  Rejoice in the Lord always.  That means regardless of the day, whether dark or bright, whether it is difficult or easy, whether it brings problems or temptations or clear sailing or cloud nine.  We are commanded to rejoice.  Paul repeats it in case we missed it the first time.  Rejoicing is just that important.  There is no power in your life if you have no joy.

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged:  condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.  Luke 6:37

 

 It’s not our job or responsibility to judge others.  God is the only one who has the authority to be the judge and the jury.  Also, if you want to be forgiven, you must forgive.  I know it hurts to forgive sometimes especially when those we love have done us wrong.  But the fact is we must deal with the issue and move forward, so we won’t have to stand before God and have Him deal with us.

Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.  John 5:8

Jesus told the man He healed at the pool to get up, take his bed, and walk.  Somebody else at the pool would need his place because he didn’t need it any more.  No arrangements had been made for a relapse.  When Dr. Jesus fixes you up, there will be no relapse.

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.  1 Peter 3:9

 

Are you able to turn the other cheek?  If someone says something evil or something that is not true about you, turn them over to the Lord and He will take care of them.  Remember we are representing the Lord, not the Godfather.
