  1. Job 38-41 New King James Version (NKJV) The Lord Reveals His Omnipotence to Job 38 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said: 2 “Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge? 3 Now [a]prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me. 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the [b]line upon it? 6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 “Or who shut in the sea with doors, When it burst forth and issued from the womb; 9 When I made the clouds its garment, And thick darkness its swaddling band; 10 When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; 11 When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!’ 12 “Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place, 13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it? 14 It takes on form like clay under a seal, And stands out like a garment. 15 From the wicked their light is withheld, And the [c]upraised arm is broken. 16 “Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths? 17 Have the gates of death been [d]revealed to you? Or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death? 18 Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this. 19 “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, 20 That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home? 21 Do you know it, because you were born then, Or because the number of your days is great? 22 “Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail, 23 Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war? 24 By what way is light [e]diffused, Or the east wind scattered over the earth? 25 “Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water, Or a path for the thunderbolt, 26 To cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, A wilderness in which there is no man; 27 To satisfy the desolate waste, And cause to spring forth the growth of tender grass? 28 Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew? 29 From whose womb comes the ice? And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth? 30 The waters harden like stone, And the surface of the deep is frozen.[f] 31 “Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,[g] Or loose the belt of Orion? 32 Can you bring out [h]Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide [i]the Great Bear with its cubs? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth? 34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That an abundance of water may cover you? 35 Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, And say to you, ‘Here we are!’? 36 Who has put wisdom in [j]the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart? 37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven, 38 When the dust hardens in clumps, And the clods cling together? 39 “Can you hunt the prey for the lion, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40 When they crouch in their dens, Or lurk in their lairs to lie in wait? 41 Who provides food for the raven, When its young ones cry to God, And wander about for lack of food? … Selah

    The Susan Boyle Story, Part 6 - The Conclusion

    Thank you, Deb… John 15:4-11 New King James Version (NKJV) 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me,he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw theminto the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,you[a] will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

    Naomi, I like you a whole lot, but In all honesty, I believe you may be a little bit angry at your own lack of knowledge regarding the Bible... perhaps a bit envious. I’ll probably never understand it all, but I read others’ posts to see what I might learn that I didn’t know before. I, for one, have spent many, many years studying the Word. You see, many years ago, I was literally brought to my knees by grief and depression after losing three babies, something I’ll never get over. From the beginning, I reached for the Bible and have never stopped studying because God’s Word sustains me. Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, as the song says. My Redeemer lives! Selah

    They don't know

    Psalm 143 A Psalm of David. 143 Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness. 2 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no one living is righteous. 3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in [a]darkness, Like those who have long been dead. 4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is distressed. 5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I [b]muse on the work of Your hands. 6 I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah 7 Answer me speedily, O Lord; My spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, Lest I [c]be like those who [d]go down into the pit. 8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You. 9 Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; [e]In You I take shelter. 10 Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness. 11 Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake! For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble. 12 In Your mercy cut[f] off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant. ... Selah

    Paul is simply telling us that the natural man, without the Holy Spirit of God, cannot understand any of the things that are of God. Those things that require spiritual discernment are closed to him, and will be just foolishness to him because his spiritual eyes are closed. You can talk all day long, and you might as well talk to the wall for that is how much spiritual discernment will be in his mind. ...Selah

    Do you pray to the Holy Spirit?

    Matthew 6:9-13 New King James Version (NKJV) 9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. [a]For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. In this passage, Jesus is telling us that when we pray, do it after this manner. Though we do not use the exact words of this prayer, the order and manner is the form that we should use. As we pray, Jesus tells us that we should keep each step in mind, as we approach the throne of God. We start, "Our Father..." We identify our heavenly Father, with the respect that He deserves. The phrase "Hallowed be thy name" gives honor to His holy name. *(Keep in mind that the Trinity is one Godhead) Selah

    Train me up!

    A nonbeliever can know God exists because He, the Creator of the universe, pursues him, and unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest picture of God revealing Himself to us. He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me." For such a time as this, Selah
  12. This ecumenical all-inclusive movement is indeed very, very dangerous. The world is getting set up to accept a one-world religious system and the antichrist when he appears, claiming to be Jesus. This is the falling away, the great apostasy, the abomination of desolation spoken about in Daniel 9:27, when many will be deceived. Let us be ever watchful. For such a time as this, Selah

    I feel predestined

    Hi, Addison So you think you can add to the free gift that our Father offers? Do you think that you can add to what Jesus did on the cross? Do you think His gift is not sufficient? Do you think you can earn your salvation by anything you do? Ephesians 2:8-9 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. And yes! You are predestined: Romans 8:29-30 New King James Version (NKJV) 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

    Sometimes wonder if I'm saved...

    Hey, Eighty The reason you hear "nothing but silence" is because you're not talking to Him! He's there, and He wants to have a relationship with YOU. He knows all about you, ....but perhaps, you hardly know anything about Him. You need to open your Bible and read it to hear all the wonderful words your Heavenly Father has to say to YOU. He wrote it just for YOU! The more you read, the more your faith will grow! ...and you'll have a more joy-filled devotion to Him. You'll see! The best is yet to come! --Selah

    Born again??

    Romans 10:9-10 King James Version (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. ... John 3:16 King James Version (KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. … Selah

    What is your understanding of Faith?

    Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. Grace is the source, and faith is the means by which we obtain the grace of God. It is through our faith that we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and are born from above. Selah

    America's Got Talent, The Champions

    I’m watching! I loved Susan Boyle’s performance and humbleness. She struggles with Asperger’s Syndrome and has been ridiculed by many; yet she has a quiet strength about her that surely comes from the good Lord above. I was so glad she got the golden buzzer! I loved Hero and Sarah’s performance, too! Selah

    Let's Start a Dialogue

    (Sounds like a dinosaur to me.) Job 40:15-24 King James Version (KJV) 15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. 16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. 17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. 18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. 19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. 20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. 21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. 22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. 23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. 24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares. --Selah--

    What does it mean to sin?

    Oh the sacrifice of Jesus, who died on the cross...for us. Before the crucifixion of Jesus, a veil separated the presence of God from men. When Jesus died at the cross, that very instant, that veil was torn in two, and now we can boldly approach God, our Father. When God sees those of us who have been born from above, He sees the precious blood of Jesus. John 3:16 tells us... For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Amen! Selah

    Faithful in the small.

    Amen, Deb... and, perhaps, the things we consider (in our own eyes) to be small, like the ones you mentioned above, or giving someone a big smile when prompted by the Holy Spirit, are in God's eyes very BIG indeed. These things probably make God smile! Thanks for a great post, Not me. --Selah--
