Food for thought    18th May 09

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

The Lord is saying. Haven't I said that I am going to finish that which I started. Rejoice and know that I am the author and finish of your faith and that I know how to bring you to all that I have promised. Rejoice and walk on.


Hebrews 12
The Race of Faith
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

If we could hear the sound of heaven, cheering us on, what an encouragement that would be. Yet that is exactly what is happening. We, God's children, are on centre stage, with the saints of old surrounding us with their love and good will..

Think on this , from the beginning of history until now, all the generations of saints that have passed on to be in heaven are eagerly watching what is happening on the earth right now. And we are living in that tiny sliver of a timeframe that is now, compared to all the centuries that God has been working His plan for the earth. We are still here on the earth, and have a limited amount of time to fulfil what we were put here for. The saints of old have played their part, have passed the baton on, and we are the ones running the race.

Doesn't that make you want to know what your role is? Doesn't it make you want to know what God put you down here for? Its time to believe God that you will fulfil your destiny. Its time to believe that He is in you to will and to act according to His good pleasure. When we believe that promise, we become a clear channel for God to do His work that He always intended to do through us..


Phillipians2: 12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure..



































"Behold I make all things new"

"Angels heralded My coming

Sure as the moonbeams light on the dew

My child forget your sorrows

For you all things are being made new"

"My child come close and listen,

You can almost hear my heart

For I love you truly, deeply,

And hate it when we're apart.

My child I want to hold you

So close to My heart for ever,

Your tears have called to heaven

I will not ever forsake you no never" .

"The Father heart of God is yours,

Forever night and day,

My child I love to listen

To hear you when you pray

For you all things are being renewed

Your pain has not escaped Me

I treasure every day with you

Leave everything, come join Me

Trickles of blood from his body fell

To the cold dark earth for you

How could you ever doubt My love

Come and look at all that I do

The darkest night that ever was

Has now just gone away,

And now the light forever shines

In the place where the church bells play.
