Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 71

Good Morning World!

This morning I say a prayer for all Business owners.  May the Lord grant you wisdom, strength and understanding.  May you get you work done within reasonable hours, and have time for family and friends.  May you ever look to Jesus as your Saviour and Deliverer, and find solace in His arms.  May you give Jesus honor, and may He give you great prosperity to help others.  In Jesus Name Amen!

Psalm 71
The theme the past few days has been the deliverance of God, and this chapter is no exception.  One thing I noticed in the reading this morning was that there seemed to be a behind the scenes theme.

The focus is the Almighty, and the reason for deliverance is because the Psalm is focused on the Lord, and He only.  When we put Jesus first, and serve Him only then we will have nothing between us, and He will be able to deliver us all the more.  The more junk that is between you and the Lord Jesus the less He is able to help.

Remember to look to Jesus, and he alone, and you will find peace and deliverance!

Yours for Jesus
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 70

Good Morning World!

Psalm 70
This morning I wanted to jump right into this small chapter because of the prelude more so than the text itself.  It says that this is a Psalm of remembrance, and yet David isn't remembering rather He is seeking deliverance from God.  Many times I have preached messages that have been about going to God when we need Him, and yet it is during the hard times that we most often forget to seek His face.  We need to remember Jesus all the more in the bad times, for it is in our moment so weakness that He can show forth greater strength and glory!

Remember that Jesus IS your Saviour.
Remember that Jesus IS your Deliverer.
Remember that Jesus IS your Help.
Remember that Jesus IS your Guiding Light.

Yours for Remembrance,
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 69

Good Morning World!
Sometimes such a small amount of snow has fallen during the night that it looks like someone has sprinkled icing sugar all over the ground.  Sometimes Jesus is so near and soft that His presence is almost undisernable, but He is still there!

Psalm 69
This is a very loaded Psalm.  Not only does is depict someone who is in deep emotional turmoil over something that happened in life, but it also is a prophecy of the death of Jesus on the cross.

Have you ever felt lonely, miss treated, falsely accused? That is exactly the emotional disposition of the writer, and person being prophesied about.  Many times in our lives we feel like we are being wrongfully attacked, but we must learn to call on Jesus, and he will be there to save us from our problems!

Like the Psalmist we must wait on God!  He will answer our prayers and save us from our enemies!

Yours for Patience and Deliverance.

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 68

Good Morning World!

By now the smell of fresh coffee is beginning to permeate into your sleepy head, and the day is beginning to get started.  Let's take a cue from our friend David and talk about Jesus for awhile this morning.

Psalm 68
(A Psalm of remembrance, Praise, Worship and letting everyone know the Our God reigns!)

1. Remember.
    Remember when Jesus healed you?
    Remember when Jesus Saved you?
    Remember when Jesus answered your prayer?
    Remember when Jesus took you by the hand and brought you through your trial?
    Remember when Jesus helped you overcome you enemies?
    Remember when Jesus helped you run through a troupe and leap of a wall?

2. Praise
    Our God reigns, and is worthy to be praised!
    Our God reigns, and will lead captivity captive!
    Our God reigns, and will heal the broken hearted!
    Our God reigns, and will Save the weary soul!
    Our God reigns, and will douse the fiery darts of the wicked!
    Our God reigns, and will carry you through your flood!
    Our God reigns, and will bring peace and calm to your storm!
    Our God reigns for He is merciful and Kind to the humble of spirit!
    Our God reigns for He is full of Love and compassion toward the needy and desperate!
    Our God reigns for He is the creator and makes all things good!

3. Go tell it on the mountain!
    Now that we remember, and have spent some time Praising Him we must go tell others that our God reigns, and there is nothing like Jesus the saviour of the World!

Yours for Remembering, Praising and Telling!
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 67

Good Morning World!

This morning the reading is so awesome that I can't ad to it or explain it any better.  It is a song of blessing and praise, and should be read and sung all by itself.  As you read this today say it out loud, believe the words you are saying!  It will bring great blessing and promise into your life!

Psalm 67
 1God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
 2That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
 3Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
 4O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
 5Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
 6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
 7God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. (Psalm 67, King James Version)

May the Blessings of Jesus be upon you today!
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 66

Good Morning World!

Psalm 66
Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord!  It is a day of vocal praise!  A day when we spread the good news of Gods greatness, Love and mercy!  We must tell others of the works of Jesus, and what He has done for us!

I challenge you to spread the good news of Jesus to those around you today!  You'll be amazed at what Jesus will do when you tell someone else!

Yours for Praise and spreading the Good news!

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 64 - 65

Good Morning World!

The snow is falling, and everything is white again for a moment.  I am so glad that Jesus covers us too, and makes us white.  However, Jesus is better than snow, because He doesn't melt in the sun, and spring will not wash Him away!

Psalm 64
A Psalm of victory!  Have you ever felt like everyone was against you?  Yeah, me too.  It isn't a very good feeling, but it doesn't mean the end of the world for you, because Jesus is on the throne in Heaven and He loves you and is on your side!  Our reading this morning describes a situation that looks hopeless.  A time when the wicked are attacking and because there is no retaliation they are bold and arrogant. Yet, no matter how dire the situation Jesus is still the ultimate hero, and He will rescue your soul from danger.  He will make the wicked eat their words, and pay for their indignities. Rest assured that you can put your trust in Jesus, and He will see you through!

Psalm 65
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be called to enter the throne room of a king or queen?  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the private guest of royalty?  Let me assure you that you have been called and you have the privilege to be royalties guest!  Jesus has sent out a call to come, and you are on the list!  You have been called to enter the throne room of heaven, and kneel and the throne of Jesus the creator of the universe!  Not only that, but Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart right now and asking to be invited in so He can be your guest of honor!  Why not try the Lord today.  Just ask Him in your heart to stay!

Yours for a victorious relationship with Jesus,
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 62 - 63

Good Morning World!
Wow! what a night!  3 sick children, and a restless baby!  Very fun!  Much prayer needed for my children so that they can start sleeping through the night again.  I am sure the mama is very tired, or at least will be when she finally gets up again this morning.

Psalm 62
This chapter really tells how I've been feeling lately. "I wait upon you God!"  With all the hustle and bustle that has happened of late, I feel left out, and I feel Jesus has been left out waiting too.  So again the search begins.  Where did I leave Jesus, and where did He get bypassed.  Don't worry this is a situation we all face.  So, my soul wait thou only upon Jesus; for my expectation is from Him!  As scripture notes: He is found if haply we will seek after Him!  Let us take a challenge and vow to step back from our hustle and wait on God, for truly it is only He who has power and mercy to direct our steps!

Psalm 63
This chapter follows a similar thought, and has a preface that David was in the wilderness of Judah when he wrote these thoughts.  I am sure we have all felt that we went through a person, spiritual, and/or mental wilderness at times in our lives.  These are times of test and trial.  When the chips are down, who will you rely on ?  When the going gets tough, who will you remember for help?  The direction you leave the wilderness is directly related to the things you turn to for help while in the wilderness.  People have gotten lost in their wilderness simple because they did not turn to the right source for guidance and help.  There are many mirages and images that can be followed, but there is only one that is real.  Jesus is the only one who has the ability to guide you safely through your wilderness.  Seek Him.  Find Him.  Follow Him.

Yours for the search of Jesus
Pastor Fred

Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 60 - 61

Good Morning World!

I find it amazing how much we as humans rely on a schedule of events for our day to run smoothly.  This amazes me because our days rarely go according to plan!  For example this morning I am at the computer blogging before 7 a.m. because I was up cleaning the college building before 6 a.m., which is my regular schedule for each morning.  I haven't blogged all last week because I had a friend cleaning for me so I could help my wife with the baby's schedule.  The moral of the story is -- because I broke some of  my daily routine certain parts of my day became undo-able!  May I suggest something before we move on to Psalms?  If you have a good schedule that is keeping you close to Jesus don't change it unless you will get closer to Jesus!

Psalm 60
This chapter seems to indicate a fight between family members.  It is never pleasant to wage war with a member of you family.  We must seek a peaceful solution as quickly as possible.  We must seek the wisdom of Jesus as much as possible.  Jesus declared that a house divided against itself will fall.  We must pray for peace in the family daily, and ever seek to keep the peace within the family so we call all serve Jesus to the best of our ability.

Psalm 61
I would call this a song of trust and relationship.  These are attributes we must have with Jesus in our life.  We must trust Jesus is our shelter, our covert in the time of storm.  We must have a relationship with Jesus so that we may abide with Him forever, and daily perform our vows.  There is something special about abiding in His tabernacle, and learning from Him daily.  However, we can only transform our tabernacle into His tabernacle when we have a relationship with Him, and have surrendered every part of our lives to Him.

We surrender to Jesus through repenting of our selfish, sinful ways giving our lives into His control through baptism in Jesus name, which gives us family access through His name.  Finally, we become a full tabernacle and family member when we allow the DNA of heaven to flow through us and over flow through the infilling of the Holy Ghost as we speak in a heavenly language.

Let's stop fighting family. Let the prince of peace come into your life and recreate your tabernacle into something of beauty, something of use to the kingdom of heaven!

Yours for trust and relationship with Jesus!
Pastor Fred

My Life: Two weeks of it anyway!

Good Morning world!

Wow!  What a whirl wind of events!  Besides buying our own print and office supply show, moving it to a new location, setting up, and catching up on past orders much has happened in our small corner of this great world.

The main reason we haven't been online is the fact that our computer decided to do some weired antics and eventually crash. Which meant some hours trying to find the problem, fix it and then eventually reformat the hard drive, not once but twice.  Now after a week and a half the usb ports are kicking the bucket.  Not sure if it is a virus or hardware related.  Anyway, that was one week!

Then another blessing in our life, a baby girl!  Jael Soraya Lillian joined us on Monday February 8 at 11:05 pm. I would post some picture, but because my usb drives are not recognizing my card reader at the moment I haven't been able to put them on my computer.  That issue will be taken care of shortly.

Jael Soraya Lillian was 9 lbs 3 3/4 ozs in weight.  She was 20 3/4 inches long.  Not our biggest, but definitely one of the strongest at birth.  She's very beautiful, and of course I'm absolutely prejudiced on that front!  We now have 3 boys and 2 girls.

Thank you for your prayers and patience. We will back online over the next couple of days.  We do have a video sermon to post, and we'll post a couple baby video's too.

God Bless! There is nothing more precious than a new born baby, and the joy that they bring to a family!

Yours for Jesus in you Life,
Pastor Fred
