Reflections on Bible verses
I Am a "Kept" personYou see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane.
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
There were times when I thought I could go no longer,
But the LORD kept me moving.
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go,
and I will bring you back to this land.
I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut.
How long, O LORD? Will you forget me for ever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have
sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
my enemy will say, I have overcome him, and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc..,
(Matt. 6:25 -34)
Do Not Worry
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food,
and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
And why do you worry about clothes?
See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labour or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these.
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and
tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or
'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things,
and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong!
(I Pet. 5:7)
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be "kept."
Are you...or do you know a "kept" person?
"Understanding your identity in Christ
is absolutely essential to your success at living the victorious Christian life."
If you are a Christian, then what is below is true of you.
Who I Am In Christ
"The more you reaffirm who you are in Christ,
the more your behavior will begin to reflect your true identity!"
(From Victory Over the Darkness , by Dr. Neil Anderson)
Your identity isn’t in your possessions, talents, tattoos, kudos, or accomplishments.
Nor are you defined by your divorce, deformity, debt or dumb choices.
You are God’s child.
You get to call him “Papa.”
According to Scripture,
Ephesians 3:12 invites you to approach God with freedom and confidence.
I John 4:9-11 promises that you will receive the blessings of his special love and provision.
Romans 8:17 says you will inherit the riches of Christ and reign with him forever.
If God loves you, you must be worth loving.
If he wants to have you in his kingdom, then you must be worth having.
God’s grace invites you—no, requires you—to change your attitude about yourself
and take sides with God against your feelings of rejection.
Let these words cement in your heart a deep, satisfying, fear-quenching confidence
that God will never let you go.
You belong to Him!
In him (Christ Jesus our Lord) and through faith in him
we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
This is how God showed his love among us:
He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I John 4:9-11
Now if we are children, then we are heirs- heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ,
if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
