Psalm 100: 2-4: “Serve the LORD with gladness; come before His presence with singing.  Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”  The words “the LORD,
He is God” reflect great confession of faith.  “Enter”  the people of the Lord may actually come into His presence and bring Him worship that  pleases Him. “Be thankful” is a command for public expression of praise.

MY SHADOW – Learn that each day must be lived in My Power, and in the
consciousness of My presence, even if the thrill of Joy seems to be absent.
Remember that if sometimes there seems a shadow on your lives it is not
the withdrawal of My Presence.  It is My shadow as I stand between you
and your foes.  Even with your nearest and dearest there are the quiet days.
You do not doubt their Love because you do not hear their laughter, and
feel a thrill of Joy at their nearness.  The quiet gray days are the days for duty.
Work in the calm certainty that I am with you.

Psalm 22: 27,28: “All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before You. For the kingdom is the LORD’s, and He rules over the nations.” For King David these words refer to the spread of the news of his deliverance to places far outside of Judah.  For our Savior, Jesus Christ, these words speak of the eventual spread of the gospel of redemption to all the families of the nations, a fulfillment of God’s promises that He would bless all nations through Abraham’s descendants.  Have a lovely weekend and be safe!

RELAX – “Relax, do not get tense, have no fear.  All is for the
best.  How can you fear change when your life is hid with Me
in God, who changeth not – and I am the same yesterday, today,
and forever.  You must learn poise, soul-balance and poise, in
a vacillating, changing world.  Claim My power.  The same
power with which I cast out devils is yours today.  Use it.
If not, I withdraw it.  Use it ceaselessly.  You cannot ask too
much.  Never think you are too busy.  As long as you get back
to Me and replenish after each task no work can be too  much.
My Joy I give you.  Live in it.  Bathe your Spirit in it. Reflect it.”

1 John 4: 17-19: “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts our fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears
has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” The mature expression of ‘perfected’ love produces confidence as a Christian anticipates Jesus’ judgment of the world. A person who abides in love will not be ashamed when Jesus returns. A mature understanding of God’s love removes any fear of God’s judgment. Fear is a tool of the devil and I can tell you from personal experience; once you replace fear, hatred, and judgmental attitudes in your heart … with LOVE; your lives will change for the better and a happy confidence overwhelms you. If we don’t learn anything else from theWord – learn to love; deeply, purely and honestly. Then Jesus can work in our lives.

John 20:30, 31: “And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in  this book; but these are written that you may believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing  you may have life in His name.” John states the purpose of his book.  His purpose was to convince his readers that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah who fulfilled God’s promises to Israel. Jesus is the Son of God, God in the flesh.  By believing these things, a person obtains eternal life.

Take each day now as a joyous sunrise gift from Me. Your simple daily tasks done in My Strength and Love will bring the consciousness of all your highest hopes. Expect great things. Expect great things.”
