Commit Our Souls To Him

 

Let us who suffer
according to God’s will

commit our souls
to Him

in doing good
as to a faithful Creator

who suffered
for our sin.

**********

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit . . .”

“Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”

1 Peter 3:18, 4:19 NKJV

Merciful and Faithful

 

He had to be made
like His brethren

in order to be
our merciful High Priest

making propitiation
for our sins

suffering temptation
He gives us relief.

**********

My merciful and faithful High Priest is with me.

**********

“Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be made a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.”

“For in that He Himself has suffered being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Hebrews 2:17,18 NKJV

My Called

 

War will be made
against Me

but I will
overcome

and those with Me
are My called

My faithful
chosen ones.

Jesus establishes my faithfulness.

Chosen and Faithful

“These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called chosen, and faithful.”  Revelation 17:14 NKJV

I am thinking about God choosing me vs. just me choosing Him.

Thank You, God, for choosing and infusing us so that we may be called chosen and faithful.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Though they make
war against Me

they will be
overcome

and you shall be
with Me

My faithful
chosen ones.

God bless you as you are with Him today!

Blameless

“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. ”

“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.”   1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

I get blamed a lot.  And when someone isn’t blaming me, I go ahead and blame myself.

Lord, it’s hard for me to imagine being blameless, and the tears flow, knowing that I will be . . .You will see to it.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Faithful To Do It

Havasu Falls
source – wikipedia

There is complete peace
in sanctification

being made whole
and blameless through You

preserving us
body, soul and spirit

something only You
can faithfully do.

The Faithful God

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him, and keep His commandments.” Deuteronomy 7:9

The God who was faithful and merciful to Israel then is still faithful and merciful to her now. And to us as well.

O Lord, we desire to love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

None Like Him

For what God
is like our God
forever faithful
forever true
able to
keep promises
full of love
and mercy too.

The Faithful Servant

“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his  master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?”  Matthew 24:45
“Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.”  Matthew 24:46

The waiting can be so long, so hard.  We wonder, even falter.

Thank You, Jesus, for the promise that You will come again.  Please help us to stay faithful.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

Staying On Task

No one else around Noah
was building an ark
as he worked on it
day after day.

So surely I can
stay on task
feeding the hungry
just as You’ve asked.

What has God asked you to be faithfully doing?
