To declare that the LORD is upright

Psalm 92:12The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree,
He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13Planted in the house of the LORD,
They will flourish in the courts of our God.

14They will still yield fruit in old age;
They shall be full of sap and very green,

15To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

A recurring theme in my life song has been thanks to the Lord for answered prayer. My message to you as brothers/sisters is that we serve a God who answers prayer. As we read in the Psalm above, I desire "to declare that the Lord is upright."

Day after day all creation declares our God's faithfulness. What I am seeing in my life, in a time when the world is falling apart, is that our Lord is good, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

These things are written to you today to encourage you. Seek the Lord in prayer today, while He may still be found. I, your brother, am one of few voices crying out in the wilderness, "SEEK THE LORD, HE IS FAITHFUL, HE CAN BE TRUSTED."

Spend less time taking counsel from this world (stay away from the TV and internet). Spend more time in prayer and in the Word. I guarantee you that as you get over your crack-cocaine like addiction to the steady stream of sewage (news) from this world, you will feel better. You will have more time. You will be of better service to everyone you meet.

What does mankind need more of now, prophets of doom who restate the obvious daily (this world is going down the tubes-do we need a prophet to see it?), or people who walk full of the Spirit of God, in the power of God? In a world full of darkness, what is needed is light. Light will not be found on the TV or the internet.

Stay in the Word of the Lord. My testimony to you is this: He can be trusted to the uttermost.

It has been written here recently that this writer has asked for, and is believing for 2 miracles. As this is written to you, green shoots of miracle 1 are already sprouting above the ground. How many more ways can it be restated? Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ, trust Him....

grace and peace
