“You didn’t say that…..” (Accusing)
“No! We only need this number of work hours…” (Lying)
“Think about other options…” (Tempting)
Glances…Smirks…Glad about crashing people under them… (Power)
Yes…I faced all those…I discerned all those characteristics as we met face to face. (Glory be to God for His gift of discernment!). But I won’t be afraid. These are the same characteristics that our spiritual enemy and his followers possess...
Like what our pastor said last Sunday during our early morning fellowship, the devil is not omnipresent. He is not omniscient. He is not omnipotent. Never will he be equal to the ONE and ONLY GOD ALMIGHTY!
God Who has a hold on me! I will not be afraid no matter what comes my way! Do you feel His hold on you?
The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid,
For you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.
You welcome me as a guest, anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
I wrote this song on July 29, 2003, asking myself, “When is the right time for us to get together with God?”
Jesus Is The Shepherd
I was once lost like you, not knowing Christ
Every struggle means pain and I get deeply hurt
But please listen to me and to all the things I’ll say
Jesus is the only life, the truth and the way
How long are you gonna’ be lost like a sheep?
For when Christ finds you, you just have to believe
Oh, Jesus is the Shepherd Who will lead us all
Salvation comes from Him and from Him alone
Oh Jesus has so much love
All you need to do is open up your hearts
Turn away from all of your sins
And love and joy will grow within.
If your life is ever found, don’t let it go
Stop your wandering, let your faith grow
For Jesus is the Shepherd Who will guide your way
Nothing will go wrong, in your hearts He’ll stay
“All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God’s path to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the guilt and sins of us all.” – Isaiah 53:6
