For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. — Jeremiah 29:11

God only has good thoughts toward me, even though it may seems bad now, like going through financial or health problems, God only has thoughts of good and hope for me.

Reach out to Him, believe in and rely on Him and He will bless you with abundant life.

What Cancer Cannot Do – Part 5

5. Cancer cannot quench my peace, my strength, or my trust in God

3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.

Isa 26: 3-4

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27

God is my strength and my peace, I know that whatever the world throws at me, including disease and sickness, my God will give me the strength to get through it. I will have peace during and after the trial.

God is Peace

Philippians 4:1-7

1 Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved. 2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

Paul is reminding them of how he loves them and how he showed his love for them.  Now he is urging them and us to show love to one another and help our fellow Christian brothers and sisters.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

We should be very happy that we are in God’s hands and that our names are written in the Book of Life, that through Jesus, we have eternal life with Him.  Whatever hardships or difficulties we have in this world, we know that it will be over and we will have peace and abundant life with our Savior.  So, rejoice!

5 Let your gentleness be known to all men.

Not only do we help our fellow Christian brothers and sisters, we should show this love to all men and women.  The love and peace that God has freely given us, we can give to others and we would know a little of the joy that God has when He blesses us.

The Lord is at hand. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Be thankful for the peace and love that Jesus has shown you, there is nothing to be worried about.  God is with us even though we can’t feel it sometimes, but we will soon be able to see and touch Him and bask in His glory, and His peace, and His love. I can’t wait!

God is Peace

The Rich and the Rich Poor

Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.

James 1:9-11

The rich is of course the wealthy, the ones who have a lot of money. They may have inherited it, saved it, earned it, maybe even won it, but they have a lot of it. Does that mean they have a lot of happiness? Possibly, it all depends on who they know and I don’t mean a celebrity or some great looking people, or even the president. None of those people can make you truly happy with an everlasting happiness. Jesus is the only one who can do that. If you know Jesus as your Savior and your friend, you will receive His grace, peace, and joy. A truly lasting joy that surpasses all entertainment on Earth.

The people who know Him are the rich poor; He makes the poor in wealth rich in spirit. Even the poorest people who have nothing more than shelter and the day’s food are content and fulfilled if they know the Prince of Peace.

I not saying that all rich people are sad, lonely, or depressed, not at all, many born again Christians have been blessed by God with earthly riches, who in turn blesses others in His name. I guess they would e the rich rich.

The blessing of the LORD makes one rich,
And He adds no sorrow with it.

Proverbs 10:22

I have been blessed greatly by God and He gives me great joy in giving back to Him.
