    “Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” Psalms 100:3
    What a wonderful promise that we belong to God. This verse reminds me of Isaiah 43:1 which says “But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name;...

    “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” Psalms 32:8
    I really enjoy this verse because it is God speaking directly to each one of us. Words have tremendous power whether we realize it or not. Jesus said in John 6:63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and...

    "I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies, And of the son of man who is made like grass,” Isaiah 51:12
    What a tremendous promise we have from the Living God. He is the one who comforts us. We all suffer from the wounds of living in a fallen world. Words spoken can be very hurtful. When we experience many hurts, we develop a very thick wall...

    "In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” John 14:20
    What an awesome promise! The very God who created the universe has come to live in our hearts. Not only that, we are in Him. This is not something which can be understood with our intellect alone. It is a statement which God Himself, must make real to is. This is why it says “in that...

    "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” Romans 1:16
    The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God for salvation and includes everything God wants us to have. We would look rather foolish if we kept trying to plug the cord for an electrical appliance into the tap of a sink. This is not where...

    Romans 15:4 “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
    Did you know you have a trillion dollar resource at your disposal when listen to God's word. Actually it is much more than that, but a trillion is about all we can understand. When God, the creator of the universe speaks to us through His word, He tells us how He...

    "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad." John 8:56.
    Abraham lived centuries before Jesus, so how did he see His day? He saw it the same way we do, by believing the word of God. Abraham, the father of faith, believed the promises God made to him. Why does God require us to have faith? Many of the things of God are unseen and to the natural man it is foolish...

Posted Feb 4th 2010, 09:27 by Minute Manna by Michael Orser on Inspiration


    “We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” ( I John 4:16)
    How do we gain knowledge of God? John says he has come to know, implying this knowledge has been gained in the process of time. Of course the answer is found in the next part, “and have believed.” We can only...

    “so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.” John 3:15
    It is important to remember, what God gives us is a gift which we cannot earn. The day we received it, it was a gift and today it is still a gift. The moment we forget this, we seek to earn it or maintain it through activity of our soul. This leads to striving and actually means we have stopped believing. To believe means to accept...

    "The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8
    I sometimes wonder why God doesn't say, “What's the use?” Or, “why do I even bother with them?” Or, “are they ever going to learn?” I then realize this is actually my own thinking, because I would have given up on me a long time ago. God's...

    “Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24
    We live in a society which values making the most of every minute and we seem to want everything yesterday. We want to be able to drive through to get coffee or food, as fast as we can. We are always searching for conveniences which will make life simple and we are able to spend more time doing the things which...

    "Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;” Deuteronomy 7:9
    “The faithful God” is a wonderful description of who God is. Faithfulness is something we learn about God over a period of time. We may experience moments when God shows us His faithfulness, when we receive an answer to prayer or receive some provision. However...

    "As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.”1 Chronicles 28:9
    God wants us to know Him. King David told his son Solomon, just before he died, this important truth, “......

    "Since you are precious in My sight, Since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:4
    Recently I have been reading the Bible as a love letter from God the Father, to me. For example I will read this verse as if God is speaking directly to me. “You are precious is My sight, you are honored and I love you.”...

    Jesus came to us, to let us know who God is and what He is like. He came to reveal to us who our Heavenly Father is. Most of us know our earthly fathers, but our...
