Where Morning Dawns and Evening Fades You Call Forth Songs Of Joy

~Psalm 65:8
Have you ever risen early, climbed a hill, and watched God make a morning? The dull gray gives way as he pushes the sun toward the horizon, and then the tints and hues of every color begin to blend into one perfect light as the full sun suddenly bursts into view. As king of the day, the sun moves majestically across the sky, flooding the earth and every deep valley with glorious light. At this point, you can hear the music of heaven's choir as it sings of the majesty of God himself and of the glory of the morning.

HOW TO LOVE GOD



HOW TO LOVE GOD

To love God in the most practical way is to love our fellow beings. If we feel for others in the same way as we feel for our own dear ones, we love God.
If, instead of seeing faults in others, we look within ourselves, we are loving God.
If, instead of robbing others to help ourselves, we rob ourselves to help others, we are loving God.
If we suffer in the sufferings of others and feel happy in the happiness of others, we are loving God.
If, instead of worrying over our own misfortunes, we think ourselves more fortunate than many many others, we are loving God.
If we endure our lot with patience and contentment, accepting it as His Will, we are loving God.
If we understand and feel that the greatest act of devotion and worship to God is not to hurt or harm any of His beings, we are loving God.
To love God as He ought to be loved, we must live for God and die for God, knowing that the goal of life is to Love God, and find Him as our own self.

Loving God Today and Everyday

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Assurance


I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted in him for that day.
2 Tim. 1:12

Assurance-Conviction-Approval


Assurance – Conviction – Approval
Hebrews 11:1-2
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval,” (Heb. 11:1,2, NASB).Faith, as stated by this inspired writer, involves three things: Assurance, Conviction & Approval. These three things are associated with faith. Consider the opposites. The opposite of assurance is doubt. The opposite of conviction is uncertainty. And the opposite of approval is disapproval. If you want to have in your life – doubt, uncertainty and disapproval, no faith in God is required for those results. Do nothing in response to God; ignore the gospel, and you will have doubt, uncertainty and divine disapproval.On the other hand, if you want assurance, conviction and approval, you must have faith in God. Most people want assurance, conviction and approval, yet they are not willing to find these results by the activity of faith in God. We should associate these things with faith and seek them by faith: Assurance, Conviction and Approval.“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him,” (Heb. 11:6).

The emotional opposite of resentment is forgiveness.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Eph. 4:31-32

QUIT IT

Leads To Anger
If you keep on biting and devouring one another, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
Gal. 5:15
