Blessed With Benefits

 

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and…

“Who forgives all your iniquities;

Who heals all your diseases;

Who redeems your life from destruction;

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfies your mouth with good things;

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Psalm 103:2-5 

Now Faith Is

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of  the king’s commandment. By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time; Esteeming the reproach of the Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he looked for the recompense of the reward.

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king:

for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.

Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest He that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

By faith they passed through the Red sea as on dry land: which the Egyptians attempting to do were drowned.

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.”

Hebrews 11:1, 23-30

He Sees Me…He Knows My Name

“…Fear not: for I have redeemed you,

I have called you by your name;

you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;

and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you:

when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned;

neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your  Savior.”

Isaiah 43:1-3
