CONTENTMENT


"For I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content."  Philip.1:11

It’s hard to learn this lesson, Lord for we who are so weak,
But give us faith & courage, Your will to always seek.  (RP)

ARE YOU REALLY CONTENT?


Php 4:11  Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


Paul said he had to learn to be content; and we see that he was, indeed.
He passed the test better than most of us; he actually knew how to succeed.
His life testified of God's help to him; the same thing is available right now to us.
The secret he gives in the thirteenth verse; do it and there's no more to discuss. (RP)

MOST PEOPLE KNOW THIS


"In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return."Genesis 3:19

That day when the first couple disobeyed God, man's labor started for sure.
Sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, but thankfully, Jesus is the cure.
Without Jesus there is absolutely no hope, so we urge all to receive this great gift.
Do it today while time's on your side, and you'll never be sorry you were swift.  (RP)

WOULD YOU ENCOURAGE SOMEONE TODAY?


And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement)  Acts 4:36

Barnabas has gone down in history, as a great encourager indeed.
Have you ever been encouraged, my friend; I'm sure you are agreed.
Determine TODAY to reach out to someone; they need your help today.
When the day has ended, you'll be happy someone's sadness went away.

OUR ENEMY IS DEFEATED


"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."  Ephesians 6:12

We have an enemy, who is Satan; he's after every last Christian on earth.
And he's been doing this ever since you received Jesus, and the new birth.
Please know he is defeated, and that's why he is so anxious to get at you.
Resist him by God's power NOW, and only God's perfect peace pursue. (RP)

THE GREAT MEETING IN THE AIR


"Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:17-18

Most Christians I know are looking for this; we do not know the day.
But when Jesus decides that its over, He'll come without any delay.
That moment will be special, for those who know Christ as their Lord.
If you don't, right now, receive Him, and get your heavenly reward.  (RP)

WATCHING GOD WORK


Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. Exodus 14:21
  
We never know how God will work as He leads His dear children along,
In our story today they were by the sea and there was a mighty throng.
In a miracle never seen, God divided the sea and His children walked over on dry land,
And his love and strong arm were seen by all, as the One with the very strong hand.  (RP)

This is a test, because I want to use my cell phone to post some poems. I hope this goes through okay.

BE CAREFUL OF BOASTING!


For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?  I Cor. 4:7

The Word plainly states what we have is from Him,
So we better give Him His due,
For boasting is sinful and God is not pleased
When His honor we do not pursue.  (RP)

SIN AND PRAYER


If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear.  Psa. 66:18

Praying to God with un-confessed sin, is a very serious thing indeed.
The truth of the matter is this dear one, if you do, you won't succeed.
So begin right now, to confess known sin, and live for Jesus today.
God will answer your prayers, and you will have joy in a special way.  (RP)

HOW DO I GET MORE FAITH?


Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Some people say they have no faith, and the Bible tells them why.
To have faith one must read the Bible; it's as simple as pumpkin pie.
When your faith is low, go to the source and get your battery charged.
You'll then be delighted, and will learn how your faith will be enlarged.  (RP)

WHAT KEEPS YOU BUSY?


Ec 5:19 As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor-this is the gift of God.
 20 For he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart.

Not many of us are like Solomon here, nor can we imitate him.
But all that he had was a gift from God, and he lived life to the brim.
Whatever God has given us, I trust we recognize it is truly  a gift.
I pray God will keep you busy in His way, and you will not go adrift.  (RP)

WE DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND


Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Eph 3: 20-21

We cannot really comprehend how powerfully in us God has done his mighty work.
When it comes to prayer, we cannot out "ask" Him; this duty we should never shirk.
He's working every day of our lives, to show us the power that works mightily inside.
To Him we give the glory, and want to always and forever in His presence abide. (RP)

SOWING AND REAPING


Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.    Galatians 6:7-8

Sowing and reaping are a part of life; the laws of nature work,
And humans also reap results for things that annoy and irk.
Some try to hide themselves from God, but they are very wrong,
God will not be mocked by men, because His ways are strong.
To him who sows evil, corruption will come; this is bad for man,
Sowing to the Spirit of God brings joy; this is God's noble plan. (RP)

IS YOU LIGHT TURNED ON?


Matthew 5:16   "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.


This is a decision YOU must make, but it's Jesus' command for sure.

When the world sees what we have, they'll want it too; this is our goal.
So, believer, shine for Jesus, so that many more in heaven will enroll. (RP)

NO CONDEMNATION


There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1

Free from condemnation is something most people long for.
Jesus did exactly this because our sin He would not ignore.
He died on the cross to set each of us free from that awful sin.
We received forgiveness, and now by His Spirit, we are in. (RP)

THINK THIS ONE OVER

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9    Ro 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

We never can expect to think like God, but we can really see what He is doing.

God works in such mysterious ways; It's more wonderful than we can describe.
Relax and trust your life to Him; He knows best, and to this we better subscribe.
