Many great quotes by this man…One my favorites.

“I have decide to stick with LOVE…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This week at Faith Renewed I shared from Psalm 100:1-5.  

1Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!

2Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.

3Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

5For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

This is an AWESOME Psalm!  

Some great things in this one to be mindful of as 2018 gets underway.

Here are 3 that stood out to me. 

  1. PRAISE The Lord JOYFULLY There are SO MANY things I could share about this point…but to keep it simple…OUR PRAISE MATTERS!  It opens doors, defeats the enemy, reveals our heart, and the list goes on and on…
  2. SERVE The Lord GLADLYTHIS IS HUGE!!! Every person was created to serve the Lord.  God didn’t make you, and then try to find a purpose for you.  BEFORE you were every thought of by your parents, God had a plan for you.   We discover that purpose through serving HIM!
  3. KNOW The Lord PERSONALLYGod doesn’t want us to only know ABOUT Him…He wants us to KNOW HIM.  To think that the One who created this world, desire to have a personal relationship with me continually blows my mind!

Worrier or Warrior?

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Philippians 4:6&7
