Eternal Day of No Enemies

Jealousy, envy, rage,
All create the fiercest enemies.
Foes that torture,
And bring you to your knees.
They carry hatred and vengeance,
And weapons to wound and kill.
They seek that one opportunity,
Because they will.
Deep inside each one of us
Is another wicked foe
Causing havoc in our mind,
And to those we love and know.
That old man is eaten up
In a flesh of sinful nature.
Without the Holy Ghost,
He can never spiritually mature.
God can be an enemy
To those who stand against Him,
To those who threaten His children,
Or would dare to harm them.
God can stop the evil, wicked, and ugly.
God can put to death.
God can stop the heart.
God can remove breath.
But He has created a place
Where no enemies are allowed.
All tongues will confess.
All knees will bow.
This eternal Day will come,
To know a peace like no other.
We’ll love and worship our God,
And finally love one another.

Grateful for the Holy Spirit

How grateful I am, God,
For the presence of the Holy Spirit.
How precious is His whisper.
Thank You for letting me hear it.
Thank You for the peace He brings
To every part of my soul.
I cannot control anything,
But am grateful He is in control.
Thank You for being so close
In such a powerfully personal way.
Thank You, Jesus, for the promise
That He came to stay.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for ministering
To my Jesus and me,
Him in the garden of agony,
And me in all my misery.
Thank You for praying for me,
And teaching me how to trust
That Your prayers are enough,
And that God is just.

Inspiration: 1 Samuel 16… Saul

1 Samuel 18:13-14/Proverbs 16:7

A powerful message of Proverbs 16:7
is shown in David and Saul.
David’s wise behavior
made Saul’s pride fall.
Fear replaced vengeance
and prevented ill will.
The more wisely David behaved
the more frozen Saul stood still.
This wise behavior
also pleased the heart of God.
Though Saul sought to slay David,
to allow him, God would not.
It is true what God says.
Proverbs 16:7 is very wise.
Even the Philistines were at peace
though David killed Goliath before their eyes.
