My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: All our blessings are because of God’s mercy, not because of man’s worth, He hath begotten us, and this deserves our thanksgiving to God, we have A LIVELY HOPE, A LIVING, STRONG, QUICKENING, AND DURABLE HOPE.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! IN HIS GREAT MERCY, he has given us new birth into A LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, we ARE SHIELDED BY GOD’S POWER until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 1:3-5)
Several years ago, we pastored the Darrington Church (Washington), a very precious young woman gave her heart to the Lord and was wonderfully born again. She wanted her husband to be saved so we began a prayer vigil for him and things began to get worse before those prayers were answered. When my wife and I would visit their home, he would sit across from me and as he smoked a cigarette he would blow the smoke in my face and wait for a reaction. The Lord helped us to be kind in spite of several rude remarks and after several weeks the Lord marvelously saved him. He began to attend church but would not participate in our Sunday school class because as we discovered later, he had never learned to read. He began to seek the Lord to teach him to read the bible and soon he was reading and commenting in class. Later he became a Deacon and a great asset to our local church. Is there anything too hard for the Lord to accomplish? “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME?” (Jeremiah 32:27)
WE ARE SHIELDED BY GOD’S POWER AND NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR HIM!
Notice: […We must understand that the bible says:] “…IN HIS GREAT MERCY, he has given us new birth into A LIVING HOPE.” !!!] That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh
