Learn to be content
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 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[a] who strengthens me.
The more we trust the Lord no matter what the circumstance the more we learn to be content. I pray for you readers today to learn contentment! Shalom!
And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.”
So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”
And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”
Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”
God's presence is in and through us as we walk in His love and guidance. He will never leave us or forsake us. Keep your eyes upon Jesus today. Believe in Him, accept Him as Lord, walk in His ways, rejoice in His Presence, rest with Him!
Then he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’; for the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over,
24 that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord, that itis mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.”AMP Vs 24 That all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty and that you may reverence and fear the Lord your God forever.
As you read ALL of chapter 4 you can see the significance of the twelve stones representing the twelve tribes and this memorial for the children of Israel to have reverence for the Lord and know His hand is mighty! "Remember" the 12 stones!
The Heavenly Hope
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them,[a] embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
Hebrews Chapter 11 is known as the "faith" chapter. These versers challenge us to ask ourself, Are we wiling to die for our faith?" Many have and more will, we must be willing to share our faith in Christ no matter what. Are you willing? Do you desire a "heavenly country?"
Rest A while
And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.
Are you busy today coming and going with family and friends? Jesus says "Come aside to a deserted place and rest a while. Get alone with our Lord and Savior and see and hear what he is telling you. Rest and trust Him. Be confident in His plan and purpose for your life. And again I say "REST"!
The Lord's kingdom rules over ALL
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.
Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His word,
Heeding the voice of His word.

You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
Bless the Lord, all His works,
In all places of His dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
As we bless our heavenly Father it confirms His kingdom reigns!! Bless Him!! Bless Him!! Bless you Lord!

25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;
O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
Now is the day to proclaim God's Word over your circumstance. Keep Claiming! His Word is powerful! Never Give Up. Trust the God of all sufficientcy!
Be Strong and of good Courage
God’s Commission to Joshua (God's Commission to Us)
After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
This is the scripture the Lord gave me back in 1999 after giving the vision to go forth and follow Him. Today it is still true with every step we take under the Holy Spirit's guidance. We must take "courage" and "be strong" (means courageous, valiant, established, firm, unyielding, mighty). All things are possible in Christ's strength. Be blessed as you go forth in His calling!
Pray for Those who ask
Now King Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah. But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land gave heed to the words of the Lord which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah.
And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah, the priest, to the prophet Jeremiah, saying, “Pray now to the Lord our God for us.”
No matter if people heed the Words of the Lord they still need prayer. When ever some one asks for prayer PRAY FOR THEM. We need to be sure our hearts are filled with love and compassion, not self-righteousness. The Lord may give you a word for them that they need to hear.
Have Faith Just Believe
God's Word says Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Nothing will be impossible for you. Have faith God took us to Nepal for Bible Reading Marathon and back to share the power of His Word being released for His purpose. Just "BELIEVE" !
