ONLY GOD CAN MAKE A TREE And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, “This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying: ‘Take from among you an offering to the Lord. Whoever is of a WILLING HEART, let him bring it as an offering to the Lord: gold, silver, and bronze; blue, purple, and scarlet thread, fine linen, and goats’ hair; ram skins dyed red, badger skins, and acacia wood; oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense; onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod and in the breastplate.' " - Exodus 35:4-9 . #thebookofexodus . Furthermore King David said to all the assembly: “My son Solomon, whom alone God has chosen, is young and inexperienced; and the work is great, because the temple is not for man but for the Lord God." Then the people rejoiced, for they had OFFERED WILLINGLY, because with a LOYAL HEART they had OFFERED WILLINGLY TO THE LORD; and King David also rejoiced greatly. "Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to OFFER so WILLINGLY as this? For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You. O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have prepared to build You a house for Your holy name is from Your hand, and is all Your own. I know also, my God, that You test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heart I have WILLINGLY OFFERED all these things; and now with joy I have seen Your people, who are present here to OFFER WILLINGLY to You." - 1 Chronicles 29:1,9,11,14,16-17 . But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his HEART, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a CHEERFUL GIVER. - 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 . #ownsthecattleonathousandhills #godmyprovider #letusgointothehouseofthelord #cheerfulgiver

Then Moses gathered all the congregation of the child

A SLIPPERY SLOPE Then Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them, “These are the words which the Lord has commanded you to do: Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh day shall be a holy day for you, a SABBATH OF REST TO THE LORD. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. You shall kindle no fire throughout your dwellings on the Sabbath day.” - Exodus 35:1-3 . #thebookofexodus . And Jesus said to them, “The SABBATH was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.” - Mark 2:27-28 . Now it was a SABBATH when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to them, “He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” Therefore some of the Pharisees said, “This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the SABBATH.” Others said, “How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?” And there was a division among them. They said to the blind man again, “What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.” So they again called the man who was blind, and said to him, “Give God the glory! We know that this Man is a sinner.” He answered and said, “Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.” - John 9:14-17,24-25 . #spiritualeyestosee #openmyeyeslord #helpmeseejesus #fathersonholyspirit

sandygleespen. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
IS LIBERTY
And when Moses had finished speaking

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS LIBERTY And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a VEIL ON HIS FACE. But whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him, he would take the veil off until he came out; and he would come out and speak to the children of Israel whatever he had been commanded. And whenever the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone, then Moses would put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with Him. - Exodus 34:33-35 . . #thebookofexodus . But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that EXCELS. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious. Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech—unlike Moses, who put a VEIL OVER HIS FACE so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing AWAY. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken AWAY. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. - 2 Corinthians 3:7-18 . #theveilwastornintwo #libertyandjusticeforall #onenationundergod #blessedisthenationwhosegodisthelord #ingodwetrust #GodblessAmerica #homeofthefreebecauseofthebrave #freedomisntfree #wherethespiritofthelordisthereisfreedom #fruitsofthespirit #againstsuchthereisnolaw

HIS EYES LIKE A FLAME OF FIRE Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the RULERS of the congregation returned to him; and Moses talked with them. Afterward all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them as commandments all that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. - Exodus 34:31-32 . #thebookofexodus . . Hear the word of the Lord, you RULERS of Sodom; give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah: “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool." - Isaiah 1:10,16-18 . . But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered RULERS over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” - Mark 10:42-45 . . For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the RULERS of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. - Ephesians 6:12-13 . . #Lordoflords #Kingofkings #Rulerofall

GOD'S LIGHT HAS SHONE IN OUR HEARTS Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face SHONE while he talked with Him. So when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face SHONE, and they were afraid to come near him. - Exodus 34:29-30 . #thebookofexodus . Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face SHONE like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid. But Jesus came and touched them and said, “Arise, and do not be afraid.” - Matthew 17:1-7 . Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priestand asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light SHONE around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I AM Jesus, whom you are persecuting...” - Acts 9:1-5 . #iamthewaythetruthandthelife

THE GREAT COMMANDMENT “The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring to the house of the Lord your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.” Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write these words, for according to the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.” So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the TEN COMMANDMENTS.- Exodus 34:26-28 #thebookofexodus . And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the sound of the words, but saw no form; you only heard a voice. So He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, the TEN COMMANDMENTS; and He wrote them on two tablets of stone. And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that you might observe them in the land which you cross over to possess.- Deuteronomy 4:12-14 . And He wrote on the tablets according to the first writing, the TEN COMMANDMENTS, which the Lord had spoken to you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly; and the Lord gave them to me. And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good? Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord your God, also the earth with all that is in it. Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.- Deuteronomy 10:4,12-14,16-17 . “Teacher, which is THE GREAT COMMANDMENT in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”-Matthew 22:36-40

GOD SETS THE BORDERS “Three times in the year all your men shall appear before the Lord, the Lord God of Israel. For I will cast out the nations before you and enlarge your BORDERS; neither will any man covet your land when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year. You shall not offer the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, nor shall the sacrifice of the Feast of the Passover be left until morning." - Exodus 34:23-25 . #thebookofexodus . . The day is Yours, the night also is Yours; You have prepared the light and the sun. You have SET ALL THE BORDERS OF THE EARTH; You have made summer and winter. Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Lord, and that a foolish people has blasphemed Your name. Oh, do not let the oppressed return ashamed! Let the poor and needy praise Your name. - Psalm 74:16-18,21 . . Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples,saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and ENLARGE THE BORDERS OF THEIR GARMENTS. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." - Matthew 23:1-5,23-25,27-28 . #godseestheheart

THERE IS A REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall REST; in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.“ And you shall observe the Feast of Weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the year’s end. - Exodus 34:21-22 . #thebookofexodus . And Mordecai wrote these things and sent letters to all the Jews, near and far, who were in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, to establish among them that they should celebrate yearly the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month of Adar, as the days on which the Jews had REST from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor. So they called these days Purim, after the name Pur. Therefore, because of all the words of this letter, what they had seen concerning this matter, and what had happened to them, that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city, that these days of Purim should not fail to be observed among the Jews, and that the memory of them should not perish among their descendants. - Esther 9:20-22,26,28 . For forty years I was grieved with that generation, and said, ‘It is a people who go astray in their hearts, and they do not know My ways.’ So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My REST.’ ” - Psalm 95:10-11 . Let us therefore be diligent to enter that REST, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:11-12 . #thefearofthelordisthebeginningofwisdom #restfromyourownworks

THE KING COMES ON A DONKEY'S COLT “All that open the womb are Mine, and every male firstborn among your livestock, whether ox or sheep. But the firstborn of a DONKEY you shall redeem with a lamb. And if you will not redeem him, then you shall break his neck. All the firstborn of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before Me empty-handed." - Exodus 34:19-20 . #thebookofexodus . Then God’s anger was aroused because he went, and the Angel of the Lord took His stand in the way as an adversary against him. And he was riding on his DONKEY, and his two servants were with him. Now the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand, and the donkey turned aside out of the way and went into the field. So Balaam struck the donkey to turn her back onto the road. And when the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord, she pushed herself against the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall; so he struck her again. And when the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord, she lay down under Balaam; so Balaam’s anger was aroused, and he struck the donkey with his staff. Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?” - Numbers 22:22-23,25,27-28 . The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!” Then Jesus, when He had found a young DONKEY, sat on it; as it is written: “Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, sitting on a DONKEY’S COLT.” His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him. - John 12:12-16

UNLEAVEN BREAD “The Feast of UNLEAVEN BREAD you shall keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in the appointed time of the month of Abib; for in the month of Abib you came out from Egypt."- Exodus 34:18 . #thebookofexodus . Now on the first day of the Feast of the UNLEAVENED BREAD the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?” And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.' ” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover. - Matthew 26:17-19 . After two days it was the Passover and the Feast of UNLEAVENED BREAD. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by trickery and put Him to death. But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar of the people.” And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply. But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.- Mark 14:1-6,8 . Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the UNLEAVENED BREAD of sincerity and truth.-1 Corinthians 5:7-8 . Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.-1 Corinthians 2:12-13

Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the NAME OF THE LORD. And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD GOD, MERCIFUL and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.” - Exodus 34:4-7 . #thebookofexodus . .

And they rose early in the morning and went up to the TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN, saying, “Here we are, and we will go up to the place which the Lord has promised, for we have sinned!” And Moses said, “Now why do you transgress the command of the Lord? For this will not succeed." - Numbers 14:39-41 . Give the king Your judgments, O God, and Your righteousness to the king’s Son.

There will be an abundance of grain in the earth, ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS; its fruit shall wave like Lebanon; and those of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth. His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. And men shall be blessed in Him; all nations shall call Him blessed. Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen. - Psalm 72:1-4,8,11,16-19 . Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. - Micah 4:1

NOT ON STONE BUT ON OUR HEARTS Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you TABLETS OF STONE, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may TEACH them.” - Exodus 24:12 #thebookofexodus . “Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I TEACH you to observe, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers is giving you. You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Surely I have taught you statutes and judgments, just as the Lord my God commanded me, that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. Therefore be careful to observe them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes, and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’ For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day? So He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, the Ten Commandments; and He wrote them on two TABLETS OF STONE. And the Lord commanded me at that time to TEACH you statutes and judgments, that you might observe them in the land which you cross over to possess. - Deuteronomy 4:1-2,5-8,13-14 . You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on TABLETS OF STONE but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.-2 Corinthians 3:2-3,7-8,17

TORTELLINI SOUP For lunches, I tend to dress up leftovers. This Tortellini soup is often the result of not quite enough spaghetti sauce for a meal. I add the meaty red sauce to beef bone broth, bring to a boil, and add frozen cheese tortellini. I used the @krogerco tortellini that cooks in 3 minutes. Season to your taste. I added a tablespoon of @watkins.1868 Beef Soup mix. Serve with sliced Italian bread, buttered and topped with shredded mozzarella cheese; broil until crispy. #lunchin15 #dontcallthemleftovers #grandmasrecipe #tortellinisoup #soupforlunch #homemadepastasauce #beefbonebroth #watkinsseasonings #tortellini #fromthefreezer #cheesybread #stretchyourbudget #goodfood #recipe #leftovers #souprecipe #easyrecipe #recipeforsoup #soupweather

IN THE CLEFT OF THE ROCK But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.” - Exodus 33:20-23 . #thebookofexodus . He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. Sustain me with cakes of raisins, refresh me with apples, for I am lovesick. His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me. I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or by the does of the field, do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases. The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away! O my dove, in the CLEFTS OF THE ROCK, in the secret places of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your VOICE; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” - Song of Solomon 2:4-8,10-14 . Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” - John 10:25-30 . #mysheephearmyvoice #sonofgod #sonofman #notjustaprophet

HIS COMPASSIONS FAIL NOT And Moses said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have COMPASSION on whom I will have compassion.” - Exodus 33:18-19 . #thebookofexodus . But the Lord was gracious to them, had COMPASSION on them, and regarded them, because of His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not yet destroy them or cast them from His presence. - 2 Kings 13:23 . Then they remembered that God was their rock, and the Most High God their Redeemer. But He, being full of COMPASSION, forgave their iniquity, and did not destroy them. Yes, many a time He turned His anger away, and did not stir up all His wrath... - Psalm 78:35,38 . Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His COMPASSIONS fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” - Lamentations 3:22-24 . Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with COMPASSION for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” - Matthew 9:35-38 . Finally, all of you be of one mind, having COMPASSION for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. - 1 Peter 3:8-9 . #playingnicely #loveyourneighborasyourself

THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD And He said, “MY PRESENCE will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then MOSES said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.” - Exodus 33:14-17 . . #thebookofexodus . . I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, they shall fall and perish at YOUR PRESENCE. But the Lord shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment.

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. - Psalm 9:1-3,7,9-10. . Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in YOUR PRESENCE. - Acts 2:28 . . Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my PRESENCE only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. - Philippians 2:12-16 . . #thejoyofthelordismystrength #inyourpresence

HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I KNOW YOU BY NAME, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight.

I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who CALL YOU BY YOUR NAME, AM the GOD of Israel. For Jacob My servant’s sake, and Israel My elect, I have even CALLED YOU BY YOUR NAME; I have named you, though you have not known Me.
