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]

JOY from the ROCK


Genesis 49:22-25
22 "Joseph is a fruitful vine,
a fruitful vine near a spring,
whose branches climb over a wall.
23 With bitterness archers attacked him;
they shot at him with hostility.
24 But his bow remained steady,
his strong arms stayed limber,
because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob,
because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
25 because of your father's God, who helps you,
because of the Almighty, who blesses you
with blessings of the heavens above...
************************************
Anybody need some joy from the Rock today? Ever feel just plain worn out and drained? Go to 'the ROCK that his higher than I' - and drink the water that flows from Him!
********************************
Psalm 95
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
and extol Him with music and song.
3 For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.

Luke 19:39-41
39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
40 "I tell you," He replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones [rocks] will cry out."

********************************************

Deuteronomy 32:3-5
3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
4 He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no
wrong, upright and just is He. [all emphasis added]

Let US give Him praise with thankful hearts and EXTOL His name together - so the rocks won't have to! Shout for JOY like the trumpet vine!

Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,

Stephanie

Stephanie,

I received the book, it was waiting on me when we arrived back home. THANK YOU, I just know my Pastor will be blessed beyond measure.

I've been looking for that very scripture where the Rocks will praise Him.

Love to you and prayers,
Yolanda
