Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Graze in Peace

Psalm 23
A psalm of David.

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,

He leads me beside quiet waters,
3 He restores my soul. [emphasis mine]

Psalm 1
1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on His law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers. [emphasis mine]

Jeremiah 17: 7-8
7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in Him.
8 He will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit." [emphasis mine]

Isaiah 61:3
They [we] will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of His splendor. [emphasis mine]

Let the LORD take you to His green pastures to feed on His Word - to rest in His arms - to know who you are - and most importantly - to know Who He Is!

Choosing JOY,

[Listening in Silence - Ends Today]
