… He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.
He never did one thing wrong, Not once said anything amiss. They called him every name in the book and he said nothing back.
He suffered in silence, content to let God set things right.
He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became your healing.
… the Melchizedek story provides a perfect analogy: Jesus, a priest like Melchizedek, not by genealogical descent but by the sheer force of resurrection life—he lives!—“priest forever in the royal order of Melchizedek.”
The former way of doing things, a system of commandments that never worked out the way it was supposed to, was set aside; the law brought nothing to maturity.
Another way—Jesus!—a way that does work, that brings us right into the presence of God, is pu
I give you all the credit, GOD — you got me out of that mess, you didn’t let my foes gloat. GOD, my God, I yelled for help and you put me together. GOD, you pulled me out of the grave, gave me another chance at life when I was down-and-out.
All you saints! Sing your hearts out to GOD! Thank him to his face! He gets angry once in a while, but across a lifetime there is only love. The nights of crying your eyes out give way to days of laughter.

At the cry, Babylon has been taken! the earth shall tremble, and the cry shall be heard among the nations. (Jer 50:46)
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings…! For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a so
…And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil …
… Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want…! Matt 6:13)
(Jesus says) ‘if your eye causes you to sin . . .’ So he does actually encourage us to be proactive about avoiding circumstances which will bring about temptations and this prayer asks for God’s Divine back up in doing this!

GOD ’s angel sets up a circle of protection around us while we pray. (Psalm 34:7). Papà says: “Child of Mine, I love you and would never leave you. I am here with you, even in the middle of your storm, to deliver you! Trust Me.” X #grace #deliverance #kindness #Papa #ChristianBlog #HolySpirit #hope #peace #love #mercy #God #prayerstorm #protection #Jesus
I waited and waited and waited for GOD. At last he looked; finally he listened. He lifted me out of the ditch, pulled me from deep mud. He stood me up on a solid rock to make sure I wouldn’t slip. He taught me how to sing the latest God-song, a praise-song to our God. More and more people are seeing this: they enter the mystery, abandoning themselves to GOD. (Psalm 40:1). Open your heart and start singing as you enter into this mystery too … X #grace #deliverance #hopefu
