Wisdom Wednesday

2 Peter 2.10

Blessings today! It is Wisdom Wednesday and today’s focus is “diligence.” Hebrews 4 encourages us, “Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest.” I pray that today’s Scriptures and images will encourage us to practice diligence in every aspect of our lives to the glory of God and our blessing and benefit.

But 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 diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

Diligence 7
Diligence 1
Diligence 8

The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,
But diligence is man’s precious possession. Proverbs 12:27

Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23

Diligence 11
Diligence 5

Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless… 2 Peter 3:14

I called to the Lord in my distress

Jonah 2.2

Jonah’s Prayer

Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from inside the fish:

I called to the Lord in my distress,
and He answered me.
I cried out for help in the belly of Sheol;
You heard my voice.
You threw me into the depths,
into the heart of the seas,
and the current overcame me.
All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me.
But I said: I have been banished
from Your sight,
yet I will look once more
toward Your holy temple.
The waters engulfed me up to the neck;
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
I sank to the foundations of the mountains;
the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever!
But You raised my life from the Pit, Lord my God!
As my life was fading away,
I remembered Yahweh.
My prayer came to You,
to Your holy temple.
Those who cling to worthless idols
forsake faithful love,
but as for me, I will sacrifice to You
with a voice of thanksgiving.
I will fulfill what I have vowed.
Salvation is from the Lord!

10 Then the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.

Wisdom Wednesday – Great is Thy Faithfulness

Lamentations 3.22-23

Blessings today! It is Wisdom Wednesday and I am praising God for His faithfulness! 

Just a couple of days ago, I was led to use the following video in a posted titled, “Shout for Joy.” 

You cannot sing “Great is Thy Faithfulness” with giving thought to Lamentations 3:22-23, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” I’m still singing it…ssssooo, I pray the following Scriptures and quotes about our God’s Great faithfulness will bring encouragement, peace, joy…that we will experience His amazing love and grace today! Blessings to you this day!

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.

    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Oh my…absolutely amazing!

Psalm 148.3b

Praise the Lord, all nations!
    Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord! Psalm 117:1-2

Hallelujah to the Lord Most High! What an awesome display of His glory did He place in the sky for us on today! I pray that each of us was able to see just a taste of our God’s majesty! I was in awe, it was absolutely amazing!

Just one of my whispers to the Lord on yesterday after my first view of the most wonderful display of His glory and majesty…I actually put pen to paper so I could capture the moment. I will save as a souvenir along with the glasses. 🙂

Oh Lord, my God, I am in awe! Hallowed be Your Name on earth as it is in heaven.
You created both sun and moon. The earth is Yours and the fullness thereof, the world and all who dwell there in. Who else could do this but You? No one, this is the work of Your hand, Yours and Yours alone. I am so blessed and privileged to behold Your glory in this moment of time. I could search the world over and still I would find none like You!

You created me – how absolutely amazing that the One who created and controls both sun and moon also lives inside of me, leading and guiding me just as You are doing with the sun and moon…absolutely amazed that You are my Father and I am Your child. You are in control of my life as well. I bow before You and submit to Your will. Have thine own way, Lord! You are the Potter, I am the clay. I am humbled and blessed to know that just as You keep the sun and moon, You know and keep me! Just as You have them both in Your hand on display for all the peoples and nations to see, You have me here for the same reason…because You are my God, my life has purpose and I give You all praise and glory!

Father, in the Name of Jesus, please consecrate my heart and help me to be as faithful in displaying Your glory as the sun and moon are doing just now. Be Thou glorified and draw the lost on today! Cause them to desire to know the Creator of the creation they are so excited to see.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
