Faith Messages to build your faith

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You My God

Thank you thank you thank you my God 

For love and protection 
The Gift of Your Son 
For Your Holy Spirit 
That makes us as one 

For heaven and blessings 
That soon will be here 
When one with our Maker 
We'll shout out and cheer 

For sin will be banished 
And death will be gone 
For God's Holy people 
Will have a new dawn 

And only the hands 
And the feet of our Lord 
Will carry the scars 
Of the sins that He bore 

To help us remember 
There's no place like home 
As self is surrendered 
And never to roam 

From God's Holy presence 
Where faith is the key 
As by His obedience 
We take the knee 

And bow with submission 
To Christ the God/Man 
Who loved us enough 
To go through with the plan 

To leave all His glory 
As Maker and King 
The high court of heaven 
Where angels did sing 

To come to this earth 
As a poor helpless babe 
Just born in a stall 
With its muck in the hay 

With flies and the stench 
Of the cattle and sheep 
And poor little donkeys 
That stood in their sleep 

For nothing romantic 
Was there to be found 
Until all the creatures 
Awoke to the sound 

Of cries from their Master 
This Babe on the straw 
To which holy angels 
Attended in awe 

To shield and protect 
Till His time should arrive 
To die on the cross 
And to rise yet alive 

As our great Assurance 
That we too could be 
Embraced in His arms 
When His glory we see 

So please don't delay 
But take time now my friend 
To grasp hold by faith 
To God's grace til the end 

As now on your knees 
With His scriptures in hand 
You study the beauty 
Of His Holy plan 

And we will resemble 
What He wants to see 
The image of Jesus 
In both you and me 

Matthew 10:27-33; Revelation 3:21

Let's pray-

     Father, our images will change as we spend time with Your Word.
     Time in prayer and seeking Your direction for our lives is the most valuable time spent, as then we can begin to see You and become like You.
     Thank You for Your Holy Spirit, available to all believers in what Jesus has accomplished on that cruel cross some 2,000 years ago.
     Please continue a good work in each of us, to bring us into maturity of faith and productivity for the Kingdom's work.
     I ask this is Jesus' name. Amen.

Today’s Bible verses-

(Ps. 65:11) "Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness."

(1 Chron. 16:8) "Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people."

Today’s quote- 

" Where are the fathers who will stand against this flood of uncleanness and say, "As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD" (Joshua 24:15)? [p. 95 in THE ROAD TO REALITY by J. P. Yohannan]

Our thought today-

Jesus is the Ultimate Conqueror. He conquered Death and hell! He offers victory to us today! He has the keys! (Rev. 1:18) We will also be raised with Him.

Our question today-

So, what will you do in response? Will you begin asking questions of men who have answers from the Bible?
