Sanctuary: The LORD Lives!

Several months ago, I wrote about needing new feet. I was given the chance to use my (improved but not completely) new feet this week when we experienced some challenges that, for some reason, rattled me!

God was faithful. He can’t be any other way. He saw us through all the drama and worked things out to our advantage in ways I never could have imagined! I stumbled briefly because I looked at the circumstances instead of the Savior.

As I was thinking about all the ways God has shown Himself mighty on our behalf this week, I was reminded of some verses I read during my Bible in 90 Days readings this week.

 

“For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.

The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock!
Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior!”

2 Samuel 22:32-34, 47 (NIV2010)

He is good, He is faithful, and He is worthy of my praise! Join me in praising Him, and enjoy your weekend!

    Hey Jennifer! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I don’t know how to do the “reply thing” so I hope you don’t mind me replying back to you here. I totally agree. Jesus said we are supposed to “be in the world not of the world to come out and be separate” . He knew we have to live in the world, but we don’t have to participate in worldly things, and we are to be examples to the world. I can’t count the times when someone has come up to me and said “you’re Pentecostal, right?” I’d say uh, yes, why? Then their response would be would you pray with me?” Another example is a group would be standing around laughing with someone telling an “off color” joke and as soon as I would walk up, they would say “I’m sorry” and change the subject. It’s all in the way we carry ourselves. We can be examples for people without even trying. This is separating ourselves from worldliness.
    God Bless,
    PJ

    • I don’t mind at all, Patti! You’re right about being examples without trying. Your comment reminded me of the quote (I don’t know who said it originally): “You may be the only Bible some people ever read.”

      Have a blessed weekend!
