Are you worried?
The world is drowning in sin, but you know that, don’t you?
So what are your reasons to rejoice?
For me First and foremost, JESUS saves sinners and I am one of them.
Another is that even in this sick world and I don’t mean COVID, GOD is with us and He has a plan; even if America falls to Communism in 2021 HE will still be faithful to His Children.
So let us suit up. (Ephesians 6:10-19)
Let us fasten not our eyes on the filth in this world. (Psalm 101:3-5)
Let us not conform to this world. (Romans 12:2-4)
Let us rejoice. (Philippians 4:4-9)
I used to on occasion re-post my older devotions; back then a blank day of posting just couldn’t be. I’ve had many blank days since September 16, 2015.
So just for the good of it, here’s a repeat.
That’s what I heard Charles say. Charles Billingsley. I was watching/listening to a You Tube. Charles was in concert at a church in Macon, Georgia. And right about 30 minutes in he was encouraging the congregation and he said reckon. And I was off!
Reckon. (Click here for Webster’s definition)
Some would say that’s a pretty southern word. It’s a godly word too. The Scripture passage I was thinking of was Romans 8:18. There Paul utilized it as an accounting term. Reckon. Count it. Count it as so. By the way in the KJV you will find Reckon 33 times. Here’s a link in case you want to check it out. HERE
Romans 8: 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. [source]
And so we count and if we count it so, I reckon that reckoning will change how we live. And I reckon, I need to do some reckoning.
I reckon. Seriously smiling here. 🙂
Now. One more thing and I’ll press publish.
That Charles Billingsley you tube? You got an hour and 28 minutes? I reckon it’s worth every minute I’ve invested. Perhaps you will too.
And a bit (translation: a few minutes) before the I reckon, he sings a song, and a certain portion of the lyrics is this: You wrapped my soul inside Your Arms. I don’t know about you but upon hearing those words I was wrapped in love this morning; and not just me but I saw in those words my Girls wrapped in His Arms too. Don’t you reckon some worship was going on? 🙂
I reckon I better close this epistle. 🙂
Until Next Time ~ ~ ~ Kathie
