T – There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but GOD is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Corinth. 10:13

E – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

M – My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; James 1: 2

P – Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

T – The LORD knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 2 Peter 2:9

A And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:13

T – Then saith JESUS unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy GOD, and him only shalt thou serve. Matthew 4:10

I – If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and His Word is not in us. 1 John 1:8-10

O – O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! Psalm 119:5

N – Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt CHRIST, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon the ends if the world are come. 1Corinthians 10:6-13

HEAVENLY FATHER,

HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME. I thank YOU for this day because this is the day that YOU have made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, YOUR NAME is to be praised. I thank YOU for being THE MOST HIGH GOD and GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS. Thank you for being OUR LIGHT and OUR SALVATION and our SHEPHERD and therefore, we shall not want for anything. Create in us a clean heart, O GOD, and renew in us a right spirit. Make us to know the measure of our days and our end and just how frail we are. Because GOD YOU know our frame and know that we are dust. Let not our enemies triumph over us. Teach us to love our enemies and to pray for those that use us spitefully. Let us learn to forgive others of their debts and trespasses so that we will be forgiven. Thank you LORD for forgiving all our iniquities, and for healing all our diseases, and for redeeming our lives from destruction, and for crowning us with loving kindness and tender mercies. Order our steps IN YOUR WORD and let not any iniquity have dominion over us. O GOD, strengthen our hands and open our eyes that we may see spiritually so that we can walk by faith and not by natural eyesight alone. Let YOUR WILL be done on earth as it is in HEAVEN. Thank YOU for being THE GREAT I AM, and JEHOVAH JIREH, JEHOVAH NISSI, JEHOVAH SHALOM, JEHOVAH ROPHE, and even JEHOVAH TSIDKENU and so much more. In JESUS’ NAME, Amen.

WISDOM BENEFITS EVERYONE

with a measure of grace

Image by emdot via Flickr

James 1:5 – If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of GOD, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. (KJV)

W Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understandingProverbs 4:7

  –  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2: 3-5

S  –  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.  She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.  Proverbs 3: 15, 18

D  –  Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Proverbs 2:11-12

O  –  O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.  Proverbs 8:5

M  –  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:8-9  My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.  Proverbs 8:19  Many seek the ruler’s favour: but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD.  Proverbs 29:26

DON’T GET IT TWISTED

Cover of "Humility"

Cover of Humility

by BeLinda Magee

Don’t get it twisted
If your name is not listed
In THE LAMB‘S BOOK OF LIFE
For causing envy, division, and/or strife.

GOD lets us all in on HIS sunshine and rain
Be on the road to HUMILITY,
Don’t get lost on the road of being vain.

What do I see when I look at you?
Do I see A CHILD OF GOD or expensive shoes or a new hairdo?

Do I see in you ALMIGHTY GOD?
Or are you representing a facade?

To possess GOD’S POWER, one can obtain it this very hour.
Only believe and ask for WISDOM or begin by saying, “Help LORD”,
GOD can fill you with HIS HOLY SPIRIT
It says so in HIS IMMUTABLE WORD.

The GOSPEL OR “GOOD NEWS” OF JESUS CHRIST,
Has all we need for our life.
It’s knowing about the “GOOD NEWS”
That will take away the “blues”.
If we’re in despair, be reassured
THE ALMIGHTY GOD ALWAYS CARES.

THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS GRACE, MERCY, AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE,
That can come only from UP ABOVE.

The Biblical Tetragrammaton, the Hebrew Name f...

But let’s consider our attitudes.
They can determine our level of latitude
To climb to GOD’S expected altitude
With possession of enough gratitude
To thank OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER allows HIS SATISFYING RAIN
To fall on the unjust and the just.
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER allows HIS BRIGHT SUN
To warm anybody and everyone.

In THE WORD OF GOD, we have been told
That we can be very bold.
We may have to spiritually fight
THE ALMIGHTY GOD wants us to know what’s right.

THE ALMIGHTY GOD allows HIS GRACE
For us to run in this CHRISTIAN RACE.
Where is our forgiveness for our enemies, where’s the compassion?
Now, let’s see our reaction.

Through THE WORD OF GOD it has been shown
That we are not our own
So why should I look skeptically at you
When my ways might be askew.

Don’t be fooled
But rather be schooled
THE ALMIGHTY GOD is not a respecter of persons
HE is a respecter of HIS PRINCIPLES.
For with the kind of seeds we sow
The same seeds will grow.

We may have great aptitudes
But let’s consider our attitudes
They can determine our level of latitude
To climb to GOD’S expected altitude
With possession of gratitude.
THANK YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER,
FOR YOUR LOVE, GRACE, MERCY, TRUTH, SALVATION and POWER!
