DO YOU SEE YOUR ENEMIES PROSPER?-THEN TURN THE OTHER CHEEK!

PRAY FOR YOUR ENEMIES AS GOD CAN TRANSFORM THEM

When you read Psalm 37 and then go to Psalm 73 you don’t have to worry about your enemies but trust in the Justice of God.   

 

The Destiny of the Wicked and of the Good[a]

Psalm 37 1    Don’t be worried on account of the wicked;
    don’t be jealous of those who do wrong.
They will soon disappear like grass that dries up;
    they will die like plants that wither.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    live in the land and be safe.
Seek your happiness in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desire.

Give yourself to the Lord;
    trust in him, and he will help you;
he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.

Be patient and wait for the Lord to act;
    don’t be worried about those who prosper
    or those who succeed in their evil plans.

Don’t give in to worry or anger;
    it only leads to trouble.
Those who trust in the Lord will possess the land,
    but the wicked will be driven out.

10 Soon the wicked will disappear;
    you may look for them, but you won’t find them;
11 but the humble will possess the land
    and enjoy prosperity and peace.

12 The wicked plot against good people
    and glare at them with hate.
13 But the Lord laughs at wicked people,
    because he knows they will soon be destroyed.

14 The wicked draw their swords and bend their bows
    to kill the poor and needy,
    to slaughter those who do what is right;
15 but they will be killed by their own swords,
    and their bows will be smashed.

16 The little that a good person owns
    is worth more than the wealth of all the wicked,
17 because the Lord will take away the strength of the wicked,
    but protect those who are good.

18 The Lord takes care of those who obey him,
    and the land will be theirs forever.
19 They will not suffer when times are bad;
    they will have enough in time of famine.
20 But the wicked will die;
    the enemies of the Lord will vanish like wild flowers;
    they will disappear like smoke.

21 The wicked borrow and never pay back,
    but good people are generous with their gifts.
22 Those who are blessed by the Lord will possess the land,
    but those who are cursed by him will be driven out.

23 The Lord guides us in the way we should go
    and protects those who please him.
24 If they fall, they will not stay down,
    because the Lord will help them up.

25 I am old now; I have lived a long time,
    but I have never seen good people abandoned by the Lord
    or their children begging for food.
26 At all times they give freely and lend to others,
    and their children are a blessing.

27 Turn away from evil and do good,
    and your descendants will always live in the land;
28 for the Lord loves what is right
    and does not abandon his faithful people.
He protects them forever,
    but the descendants of the wicked will be driven out.
29 The righteous will possess the land
    and live in it forever.

30 The words of good people are wise,
    and they are always fair.
31 They keep the law of their God in their hearts
    and never depart from it.

32 Wicked people watch good people
    and try to kill them;
33 but the Lord will not abandon them to their enemy’s power
    or let them be condemned when they are on trial.

34 Put your hope in the Lord and obey his commands;
    he will honor you by giving you the land,
    and you will see the wicked driven out.

35 I once knew someone wicked who was a tyrant;
    he towered over everyone like a cedar of Lebanon;[b]
36 but later I[c] passed by, and he wasn’t there;
    I looked for him, but couldn’t find him.

37 Notice good people, observe the righteous;
    peaceful people have descendants,
38 but sinners are completely destroyed,
    and their descendants are wiped out.

39 The Lord saves the righteous
    and protects them in times of trouble.
40 He helps them and rescues them;
    he saves them from the wicked,
    because they go to him for protection.


   

RIGHT TO LIFE – IT’S GOD’S PURPOSE AND CREATION

No child is a mistake, every child has a right to life, every child is a gift from God and in everything there  is a purpose under heaven.

Abortion is the knowing destruction of the life of an unborn child. But this is only part of the story as abortion also hurts the woman involved. Abortion affects women physically, emotionally, and spiritually- By Alissia Andres

Read about The Physical And Spiritual Effects Of Abortion, an article from a recent issue of our newsletter, Central Illinois Life News.

2.1 psychological Effects of Abortion

It has been discovered that there are many emotional aspects that can effect the psychological well being of women who undergo an abortion. These emotions include guilty feelings, anxiety, depression, loss, anger, and even suicide. Clinical research has found that when women are in trusting, sharing relationships, they report deep seated feelings of exploitation over their abortion experience. (Alliance Action Inc 1993, 1) A woman reports, “I was unprepared for the maze of emotions that hit me after I had the procedure. Instead of feeling relieved, I was awash in anxiety and confusion.” (Hutchison 1997, 23).

2.1.1 Symptoms of Post-Abortion-Syndrome Disorder

There is a large spectrum of symptoms of this disorder. In order to diagnose that a woman has Post-Abortion-Syndrome she must be completely honest with herself, and with the feelings that she has. Many women report strong feelings of guilt and confusion, as well as loss and many other emotions. In Canadian study by Dr. Ian Kent, many women feel deep loss and pain for the child that “should have been”. (Kent 1989, 6) One woman reports the wave and confusion she went through, ” I felt an incredible sense of loss that plunged me deeper into a state of confusion.” (Hutchison 1997, 23) There are extreme cases, in which the diagnosis is very easy. Such cases include a seventeen-year-old girl who developed lethargy, malaise, and vomiting. Doctors were unable to reach any conclusion about condition, then on the anniversary of her abortion she experienced overt psychosis. Mental examination revealed hallucinations, as well as psychotic thought processes. Guilt is probably the most common symptom of a Post-Abortion-Syndrome, which can lead to depression, complexes, or fear of infertility and of sex. (Alliance Action Inc. 1996, 1)

WAIT FOR GOD’S ANSWER – Psalm 139

Jesus said, “Your Father (God) knows how many hairs there are on your head!” (Matthew 10:30)

God knows everything about us, “He knows everything we are thinking and everything we are going to say before we even say it.”

PSALM 139  Pray the words of verses 23-24 and wait for God’s answer.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Prayer

Father, you are so amazing. You know everything about us: when we get up in the morning and when we go to bed at night, when we feel lonely and when we are happy. You know when we do well and when we do bad. We thank you and praise you for loving us. Amen.

 

BY YOUR WORDS YOU WILL BE CONDEMNED

Our fate is in our own hands

“So I tell you this, that for every unfounded word people utter they will answer on Judgement Day,37 since it is by your words you will be justified, and by your words condemned.”  Matthew 12: 36-37

IT WON’T BE GOD JUDGING US AT THE END, BUT OUR WORDS AND ACTIONS. “So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12 ).  Believers will be rewarded based on those good works—how faithfully we served Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27), how well we obeyed the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), how victorious we were over sin (Romans 6:1-4), how well we controlled our tongues (James 3:1-9), etc.

The end of our soul’s journey will be either in an eternal heaven or in an eternal hell (Matthew 25:46). We must choose where we will be by accepting or rejecting the sacrifice of Christ on our behalf, and we must make that choice before our physical lives on this earth come to an end. After death, there is no longer a choice, and our fate is to stand before the throne of God, where everything will be open and naked before Him (Hebrews 4:13). Romans 2:6 declares that God “will give to each person according to what he has done.”

Words must not be evil and must be actively good. Faith must be lived,  faith without works is dead.

 

RECREATIONAL DRUGS – THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BODY AND SOUL

OUR BODIES ARE TEMPLES

I understand that drugs are necessary if unwell. However, when drugs are taken purely for pleasure, it compromises your physical well being, your overall defences and judgement. The feeling that gives you a high is a direct disrespect against God and His Son Jesus. Did Jesus not wear a crown of thorns? Did Jesus not give Himself up as a sacrifice so that He could take all our ills, anxiety, pain, depression and worry to the cross, so that you may have peace?  When your mind is not alert, when you’re mind is weak and cannot think clearly, the enemy waits for that moment so that if can steal your soul.  (see “Protection” for prayers)
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”1 Corinthians 6:19-20
