Surely

 

God has surely
visited me

to bring me through
all this

carrying me
when I am weak

to the place that He
promised.

**********

The One who promised to bring the Hebrews out of Egypt is with me.

**********

“And Joseph said to his brethren, ‘I am dying but God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.’ “

“Then Joseph took an oath from the children of Israel, saying, ‘God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.’ “

Genesis 50:24,25. NKJV

In The Cloud

 

When I bring a cloud
over the earth

a rainbow shall
be seen

and I’ll remember
My covenant

which is between
you and Me.

**********

The One who establishes His covenant and promises is with me.

We are heirs
according to the promise

through faith
in the Son

clothed with His love

baptized
into one.

You are with me and I am Yours.

Laughter

 

Hard pressed
barren

seemingly running
out of time

yet we can joy
in Jesus

knowing His ways are
lovingkind.

**********

You establish the gift of laughter.

**********

“The LORD kept His word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God said it would. And Abraham named their son Isaac. Eight days after Isaac was born, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded. Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.”

“And Sarah declared, ‘God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby?  Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!’ “

Genesis 21:1-7

“And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers.”  Acts 26:6 NKJV

Jesus is our Hope and our Promise.

Thank You, Lord, for the hope Your promises contain.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus is the hope
of the promise

that God gave us
long before

coming to bring
forgiveness

and eternal life
restore.

God bless you as you have Hope today!

Profitable

“For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable in all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”  1 Timothy 4:8

God just adds and adds and adds to our lives.

Lord, I thank You for always being the source of all that is good and profitable for us. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Shareholders

source – stock-trades.maxupdates.tv

Godliness profits always
and in all things
bringing us the promise
and understanding
of this life now
and what is to come
as heirs of Jesus
shareholders in His Kingdom.

 

 

The Hope of the Promise

“And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers.” Acts 26:6

Belief in Jesus births a hope in us that can be judged, but not taken away.

Thank You, Father, for the hope we have in Jesus, the Promised One. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Born For Hope

The hope of the promise
made by God to us
opens our eyes and turns us to
the light of Jesus Christ.

Out from the darkness
away from the enemy
we receive forgiveness
and an inheritance in Thee.

Our Portion

“Then the Lord said to Aaron, ‘You shall have no inheritance in their land, nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel.” Numbers 18:20

I knew of a man who valued his inheritance more than his father from which it came.

Thank You, Lord, for what we have in You. Help us not to grasp and grab for earthly portions. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Inheriting

Our portion
our peace
our joy
and happiness
lies in the promise
of Jesus
our hope
and sustenance.
