DO CLOUDS PRAY?

 

Psalms 148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

 I love looking at the different shapes of  clouds while riding along & while driving on a weekend trip to Florida this past weekend I noticed this cloud looked like it was praying,

I immediately thought of the picture of Jesus praying in the garden, just another confirmation  God is everywhere, even in the clouds

God is good & if you look close you’ll realize he’s in every aspect of our lives

next time you’re outside, take a look at the clouds

THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD

and let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us and establish the work of our hands upon us yea the work of our hands establish thou it (PS.90:17)

the word establish means to be stable; the be secure; to be prepared; to be ready’ to be settled

we must ask ourselves, are we standing on a firm foundation? are we stable & secure in God or  are we standing on shaky ground?

the Hebrew word for beauty  is kindness;pleasantness; delightfulness;beauty; favor

choose to stand on that solid rock today, study to show thyself approved to  be ready in season & out of season, stand firm  be settled, rooted  & grounded not going back & forth, the favor of God will radiate kindness, delightfulness & beauty

(PS.27:4) one thing have I desired of the Lord that will I seek after that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple

what is it you seek for today?

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:15)

OVERDUE KINDNESS

 

kindness:the quality or state of being kind; an instance of kind behavior;to be generous

we often show kindness as thanks & to show our appreciation by doing the unexpected & going that extra mile to let them know that we love & appreciate them

(Prov.3:27) withhold not good from them whom it is due when it is in the power of thine hands to do it

notice how the scripture tells us  to be kind especially when it is in the power of our hands to do it, this can be as simple as taking a friend to lunch, accompanying them to the doctor or just share an encouraging word

WHEN IT IS IN THE POWER OF THINE HAND TO DO IT’

throughout the word we find many who showed kindness, to name  a few,

* Boaz to Ruth (Ruth cp.3)

* The Good Samaritan  to the man who fell among thieves & left for dead(Luke10:33)

* David to mephibosheth in honor of Jonathan (2nd Sam.cp.9) this is a beautiful chapter how David showed kindness to the whole family because of Jonathan

have you missed an opportunity to show kindness when it was in the power of thine hands to do it?
