Counting On Dad (Sunday Inspiration)

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” (Psalms 91:3)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn…..” (Isaiah 54:17)

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.” (Psalm 56:3)

Ya know we live in a dangerous world with both positives and negatives. The positives are easy and required, no, desired more than its opposite. However, when these evils and negatives arise and they will, our preps will only go so far. We have limits.

But God in His infinite love and grace, steps in and navigates us through the rough. And in those times, our confidence should never be placed in ourselves not in our skills or equipment but take relax in that which dwells in most of us. As we place our confidence in and count on His faithfulness in our Heavenly Dad we are guaranteed to overcome all adversities.

A true story was related to me recently of a rancher who lived in the lowlands of Southwest Texas. The father had promised his young son a fishing trip. On a set day, they traveled to the river for the adventure; they arrived about mid-morning. After the two spent some time fishing, the father noticed that a storm was moving in. He thought about how quickly the river could flood in heavy rain, so he decided that they should head home. The father and son began their homeward journey. They had traveled a quarter of the way and were nearly home, when their Jeep got stuck and they could go no further.

knowing that he would have to walk a mile or so for help, he instructed his son to stay inside the Jeep. After being gone a while, the father approached the Jeep and entering the vehicle he was delighted to see his son asleep in the back seat.

The father looked at the son and asked, “Son, weren’t you worried or scared?” The son looked innocently at his Dad and in all sincerity replied, “Dad, I was counting on you.”

How much faith do we have in God, our Heavenly Father? He has said, “....I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Heb. 13:5) Can we confidently claim that promise? If so will we be able to say as Moses did at the Red Sea: “…Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD…….” (Exodus 14:13).

Daily here and there, so many of us people on Earth face great rials, strange weapons, negatives on supers levels, poor decisions with terrible consequences, physical ailments, financial hardships, spiritual adversities, wicked lies, bondage enriched laws, governmental disruptions to all our lives, man-made atrocities, extreme weather…all this and more; all the while breathing the same air space as these things most wicked. What is one to do?

When these floodwaters threaten to drown us, a calm trust in God, and hearing His voice will enable us to lie down in the “back seat” and rest (sleep)- because we are counting on our Heavenly Father (our Dad!).

When all hope is lost, we can always count on God

If America Is Such A Happy Place, Why Is The Suicide Rate Up 34% Since The Year 2000? (LINK)

“Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

What in the world has happened to us?  Despite our ridiculously high standard of living compared to the rest of the world, America is a deeply unhappy place.  When I was growing up, there were no “smart phones”, the Internet did not exist, if you wanted to buy something you had to actually go to a store and hunt for it, and most vehicles were pieces of junk that completely broke down after a few years…………”

Comparing Heaven And Hell (Sunday Inspiration)

True Story

Years ago I met a man who lived for a while in Costa Rica; near the Arenal Volcano which for a while was active. He said that he hiked up about halfway and there seeing a crater to which many people from the United States grab guided tours. If you were standing near the crater, you’d see this red-hot dome with this steam and sulfur dioxide coming out.

At the base of the volcano was this discharge of lava, consisting of huge boulder that had come through a great heat and if was covering a lot of acres of pasture land. In seeing this, you could almost hear the words of Isaiah saying, “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:…………”

Looking at Arenal Volcano can help you visualize HELL as Jesus described it in Luke 16:19-31 and Revelation 21:8. Jesus spoke of HELL so vividly because He doesn’t want people to go there for eternity but rather enjoy Heaven forever. A volcano is surely not HELL, but it’s a vivid reminder of the real HELL Jesus talked about. In Revelation 21 we have a striking picture of Heaven and also of HELL. The choice of where we go is ours to make in this life.

I knew of this woman who got stung in her neck by a yellow jacket and she passed out. Her heart even stopped beating for a while, but she was revived by a person nearby who had medical training. After she regained consciousness, the first thing she said to her husband who was with her was “I saw Jesus on the throne.!” Later on the way home she mentioned that she was “almost there,” and that “Heaven was so beautiful!”

We may not have the hope of inheriting great wealth here in this world, but Revelation 21:7 says, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” What a glorious anticipation! And,…what an awful contrast is the fate of unrepentant people that want to do their own thing, their own mind and end up staying a lost sinner headed to the lake of fire and brimstone!!

The woman’s husband was the one who lived in Costa Rica.

Matthew 25:46 says, “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

This world affords no pleasure so great to cause a person to say, “It was worth it!” as they are squirming in an unquenchable hellfire.

Amazing Miracle: Christian Actor Kevin Sorbo Says That A Giant California Wildfire Stopped 3 Feet From His Home (LINK)

What a testimony! Ya know, more than 50,000 people are dead  from the California fires (msm says missing), and many others homes and lives saved…why? Maybe this story can give you a hint 🙂 Enjoy and consider this divine protection and how you can have this too! With all the bad news from California, it’s nice to hear and see good news and miracles happen to those that stand up for the One True God! 🙂

“…………..The house right next door was destroyed, along with many others all along that street, but for some reason Kevin Sorbo’s house was unscathed.

“….This story is absolutely amazing.  Like so many others, actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife were forced to evacuate from their home during the recent California wildfires, and once they left they were not sure if they would ever see it again.  And sure enough, firefighters were not able to hold back the blaze and flames came racing through their neighborhood.  Homes all along the street were burned to the ground, including the house immediately next door, but Kevin Sorbo’s house was not touched.  In fact, they could see where the flames had literally come within three feet of the house, but then they mysteriously stopped

………Be skeptical if you want, but it is a fact that Kevin Sorbo is a very outspoken believer in Jesus Christ.  He has appeared in numerous Christian films, but Hollywood has shunned him in recent years.  The following comes from Wikipedia…………Sorbo is a Christian and attends a nondenominational church.[34] Sorbo believes his religious views have caused Hollywood to limit his career, stating “There’s a negativity towards Christians in Hollywood, and a negativity towards people who believe in God.”……….Perhaps this was a way that God could show that He watches out for those that are unafraid to stand up for Him………..”

“…And this wasn’t the only incredible miracle story to come out of the recent California wildfires.  In a recent article on Unexplained Mysteries, I shared two other stories about supernatural protection in the midst of the raging flames…

What I am about to share with you is literally a miracle.  Actress Brenda Epperson is best known for her work on The Young and The Restless, and her home was directly in the path of one of the giant wildfires that recently ravaged so many communities in southern California.  Many celebrities lost their homes during the fires, but Epperson’s home was totally spared.  She just kept praying Psalm 91 over her home again and again, and her home was completely untouched by the fires.  In fact, Epperson says that you can literally see where the fire stopped “right at the border of her property…………”

Obviously the enemies responsible for these fires just could not “devour” Kevin or his home! Praise God!!!

Shocking Survey Finds That Americans Find More Meaning In Life From “Money” Than They Do From “Faith” (LINK)

People often quote that “money” is the root of all evil. No. It’s the “LOVE” of it, things, bling, money, riches…that IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. It’s ok to have things as long as things don’t have you. Where your heart is, there will also be your treasure. 

1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” KJV

What gives you a sense of meaning and purpose in life?  That may seem like a very unusual question, but I believe that it is a very important one considering how deeply unhappy our society currently is.  Everyone needs a reason to get out of bed in the morning, because there wouldn’t seem to be much point to living a life that was completely void of meaning and purpose.

So what motivates most Americans to do what they do?  Well, a new survey that was just released by the Pew Research Center has some rather startling results.  When people were asked an open-ended question about what gives them a sense of purpose and meaning in life, 69 percent mentioned family, 34 percent mentioned career, 23 percent mentioned “money” and only 20 percent mentioned faith……….”

Find Happiness

Find Happiness

A group of 50 delegates were attending a seminar on personal development when suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started by giving each of the delegates a white balloon and everyone was asked to write his or her name on it using a black marking pen.

Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

The 50 delegates were let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written within 3 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 3 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The speaker then spoke with the 50 delegates . . . ‘The exact same thing is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.

Moral OF THE STORY:

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life – this is the real pursuit of happiness.’

Lk 12:15 “And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” (Jesus-KJV)

Phil 2:4 “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” ( Apostle, disciple of Jesus Christ, Paul- KJV)

Outlaws and In-Laws

*More lessons from the days of Robin Hood

An outlaw band sheltering in woodland during Robin Hood’s day would exist almost side-by-side with local villagers and as most medieval outlaws were captured through being betrayed, it would be best to either avoid villagers altogether or at least try and stay on reasonably good terms with them.

To make the local people fear you so much that they would both provide valuable foodstuffs and not betray you to the authorities has been demonstrated enough in the past to be seen as worthless for anything beyond a few days.

The Kings deer the oft-quoted free lunch of Robin Hood and The Merry Men are of course there to be taken if you have the skills or the necessary hunting gear.

However, in addition to meat, bread is also a necessity and does not grow on trees or roam the forest glades and by eating only venison you would become sick and grow weaker on a diet of pure protein.

If you could escape or avoid the Foresters and take deer, a local villager could probably be contacted or found who would readily exchange a piece of meat for a loaf of bread, a basket of vegetables or a jug of ale.

The penalties for both if caught poaching were extremely severe in some cases amputation of fingers or hands, branding and blinding or a fine so heavy it would financially crush a man or his village for years.

Lurking outlaws themselves may have also once lived in the same village, and have relatives or friends there to help them survive and were not criminals or bad men.

The law forbade anyone to give aid, help and food to outlaws, who could be taken dead or alive by anyone for a guaranteed cash reward.

For the out-laws to move back in with the in-laws in hard times or bad weather would make good sense ; travel and news became very hard in Sherwood Forest in winter and some places would at times be simply unreachable through snow or mud, with roads and tracks simply disappearing for weeks in the rain or under snow and ice (March was known in Sherwood Forest as Mud-Month where roads and tracks became impassable for long periods ; a problem that remained in Sherwood Forest into the mid 18th Century).

If at these times you couldn’t get out of the village it meant that a threat in the form of officialdom couldn’t get in and for a time a resident outlaw amongst friends might have relative peace, a roof over his head, hot food and a welcome change of company in the form of fresh faces.
