Worship And Praise To My Creator

by Hazel Straub

My eyes I lift to the Maker of heaven and earth
My focus on his forgiveness and goodness births
A new altitude and attitude with greater gratitude
There is no place for depression, moods or platitudes

I lift my eyes out of the mundane and routine
No greater love, mercy and grace ever seen
The horizon clouds of despair, gloom and doom
Disappear in the presence of our Bridegroom

My eyes behold his loving care and provision
His presence and nearness breaks fear’s prison
He never, not ever, forsakes or leaves me stranded
His angels protect and minister as he commanded

Lifting my eyes and behold his radiant beauty
His glory surrounds and clothes me like rubies
My uplifted vision has changed my position
As  I give him all my worship and recognition

Salt Of The Earth

by Hazel Straub

Jesus said believers in him, were the salt of the earth. Salt preserves food and keeps it from spoiling. It enhances the flavor of the food. Additionally, salt can make one thirsty. Salt in biblical times was precious and used to pay wages (salary).

When Christians, walk close with Yahweh (the covenant keeping God, who is always with them), their presence preserves society. Believers add flavor, as they show Yahweh’s love, compassion, and mercy. Their peace, while walking through the storms of life, make others thirsty to know God. Their caring presence is valuable. However, when they merely go through the motions, have no relationship with Yahweh, they have lost their salty flavor and the ability to preserve their community.

Lord, I thirst for more of you, today. Make me salty, with your presence.

You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people. (Matthew 5:13 NET)

Trust Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

Trust Yahweh, and do good things.
    Live in the land, and practice being faithful.
Be happy with Yahweh,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Entrust your ways to Yahweh.
    Trust him, and he will act on your behalf.
He will make your righteousness shine like a light,
    your just cause like the noonday sun. (Psalm 37:3-6 NOG)

A Tree Planted On God’s Promises

by Joseph Cross

Just like a tree, be still, planted firmly on the ground of God’s promises. Stretch your arms out like the branches and receive all that God has for you.

Like a very fruitful tree, embrace who you are.

Forgiveness-Sending Away The Offense

by Hazel Straub

Forgiveness, as defined in the Bible, means to send away the offense, from yourself and the one who offended you. By an act of the will, you release the offender, from the debt owed you and you do not bring it up again. God shows his love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) He forgave us, when we were his enemies. Jesus was righteous and sinless and before he gave his last breath he said, Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.  (Luke 23:34 a) This forgiveness and mercy made a way for us, to receive forgiveness, for our sins (missing the target).

To receive God’s forgiveness, we must release the offenses against us and the offender. Don’t confuse forgiveness with a feeling. It is a decision and act of the will, to let the offense go and allow God to heal the wounds, in your soul. The offense sent away can no longer plague you. Otherwise, you relive the wrongs done to you and exist in negativity, hurt and anger.

Jesus instructed us, to forgive (let it go), without counting how many times,you do it. If you do not forgive, you judge the other person and will find yourself repeating similar negative patterns, to what the offender has done. When you let the offense go and consider the debt paid, you will receive mercy and forgiveness, with your sins forgiven by God. Life will be much sweeter.

Be kind and tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ, forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 )

Forgive And Truly Live!

by Hazel Straub

We are called to forgive and not get offended. No matter what has happened, in the past, let it go and do not hold onto the pain, or whatever wrong has happened to you. If you refuse to forgive, you drink the poison that you intend for others. It does not harm the offender but it makes you bitter. If you refuse to forgive and show mercy, you will not receive forgiveness and mercy.

Refusing to forgive, brings demonic tormenters that rob you of rest, peace, joy and love. Let the burden go, and you will have room, to receive God’s forgiveness. You show mercy and receive mercy. No longer relive the wrongs done to you, leave the heavy load, so you can enjoy today and truly live!

Then his master called him in. “‘You wicked servant!’ he said. ‘Didn’t I cancel all that debt when you begged me to do so? Oughtn’t you to have taken pity on your fellow-servant as I, your master, took pity on you? And his master in anger handed him over to the gaolers till he should repay the whole debt. This is how my Heavenly Father will treat you unless you each forgive your brother from your heart.” (Matthew 18:34 Phillips)

Thoughts Birth Action

by Hazel Straub

Faith and fear are both birthed, in your mind and thought life.  When you meditate, on what has gone wrong, can go wrong, or might go wrong, there is no peace and or rest. Many find it easier to concentrate, on the negative, developing anxiety and fear. They have underdeveloped faith, trust and belief in God, due to what they mull over, in their minds. What they think about, comes out of their mouths and how they live.

Think, meditate and speak the Word of God and faith, in God, will get stronger. What we feed our minds, will result in our actions. If we know a chair will hold us, we sit on it. If we trust God, we will live by faith, no matter what circumstances, we may face. What you feed, will remain.

Don’t be afraid, because I am with you.
Don’t be intimidated; I am your Elohim.
I will strengthen you.
I will help you.
I will support you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 NOG)

Yahweh Our Strength And Rock

by Hazel Straub

No matter how the enemy tries to discourage and defeat us, when we cry to Yahweh (God in our present), for help, he rescues us. He hears and answers us.  His love never fails and he never gives up on us. Praise his name!

I love you, O Yahweh, my strength.
Yahweh is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call upon Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3 ESV)

Trials Sifted Through Hands of Love

by Hazel Straub

My life is hidden, in Christ Jesus. Everything that comes against me, has to go through him, before getting to me. All that comes my way he sifts, through his hands of love.

In the difficult trial, he tells us to keep our eyes on him, not the circumstances. No matter the test, he sees me through it.

So it comes down to this: since you have been raised with the Anointed One, the Liberating King, set your mind on heaven above. The Anointed is there, seated at God’s right hand. Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God. On that day when the Anointed One—who is our very life—is revealed, you will be revealed with Him in glory! (Colossians 3:1-4 The Voice)

Lord, Destroy The Spirit Of Unbelief

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Destroy the spirit of unbelief in my life, Lord.
Roll back the curtains of the lies, in my mind Lord, so I can see what is really behind.

Your Love enables me to see
Love ain’t love until I give it away.

I shall intimately know the truth and the truth shall intimately make me free…Selah
