The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

More Quotes!!! (deeperChristian)

The men that will change the colleges and seminaries here represented are the men that will spend the most time alone with God … It takes time for the fires to burn. It takes time for God to draw near and for us to know that He is there. It takes time to assimilate His truth. You ask me, How much time? I do not know. I know it means time enough to forget time.
– John R. Mott –

The great danger facing all of us…is not that we shall make an absolute failure of life, nor that we shall fall into outright viciousness, nor that we shall be terribly unhappy, nor that we shall feel (that) life has no meaning at all – not these things. The danger is that we may fail to perceive life’s greatest meaning, fall short of its highest good, miss its deepest and most abiding happiness, be unable to tender the most needed service, be unconscious of life ablaze with the light of the Presence of God – and be content to have it so – that is the danger. That someday we may wake up and find that always we have been busy with husks and trappings of life and have really missed life itself. For life without God, to one who has known the richness and joy of life with Him, is unthinkable, impossible. That is what one prays one’s friends may be spared – satisfaction with a life that falls short of the best, that has in it no tingle or thrill that comes from a friendship with the Father.
– Phillips Brooks –
A passion for missions is the result of a special conviction, a new inward work of the Holy Ghost.
– James Elder Cumming –

It is not the bee’s touching on the flowers that gathers the honey, but her abiding for a time upon them, and drawing out the sweet. It is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most on divine truth, that will prove the choicest, strongest Christian.
– Joseph Hall –
Let it be your business every day, in the secrecy of the inner chamber, to meet the holy God. You will be repaid for the trouble it may cost you. The reward will be sure and rich.

2 Chronicles 20:17-30 The Lord is the Victor.... Praise HIM

I love this passage because the Lord fought the battle, while the people stood by and praised! Such a wonderful story to show the power of praise to our God! They appointed people to be praising and to be singing! I love the power of the simple believe in their God, knowing without doubt, that He is mighty to save!

2 Chronicles 20:17-30
Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves,
           stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O
           Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go
           out against them: for the LORD will be with you.
 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground:
           and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the
           LORD, worshipping the LORD.

And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the
           children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of
           Israel with a loud voice on high.
14:020:020 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the
           wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood
           and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem;
           Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established;
           believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
14:020:021 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed
           singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of
           holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise
           the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
14:020:022 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set
           ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount
           Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
14:020:023 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the
           inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them:
           and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir,
           every one helped to destroy another.
14:020:024 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness,
           they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead
           bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.
14:020:025 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the
           spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches
           with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped
           off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they
           were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.
14:020:026 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley
           of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the
           name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah,
           unto this day.
14:020:027 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and
           Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem
           with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their
14:020:028 And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and
           trumpets unto the house of the LORD.
14:020:029 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those
           countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against
           the enemies of Israel.
14:020:030 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him
           rest round about.

Galatians 2:20 Poem

Listening to a book in the public domain and this hymn stanzas were really good!
Galatians 2:20

While others pray for grace to die,
O Lord, I pray for grace to live, 
For every hour a fresh supply, 
O see my need and freely give.

I do not dread the hour of death,
 If I am Thine, no fears remain;
I know that with my parting breath
 I yield for ever mortal pain.

E'en if the darkness should appear
Too deep for faith as well as sight, 
If I am Thine Thou wilt be near,
And take me to Thy heavenly light.

But Oh! my Lord, in life's highway
I crave the sunshine of Thy face;
And every moment of the day
I need Thy strong supporting grace.

I dare not–will not–Lord, deny,
That heart and feet both go astray;
Therefore the more to Thee I cry
To keep me in the chosen way.

The more my sin and unbelief
Keep me from walking near to Thee,
The more, Lord Jesus, is my grief–
The more I long Thy face to see.
