Eyes of God: Proverbs 15:3

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

This scripture verse makes a profound statement as it relates to the all-seeing eyes of God who sees all, can do all, and everywhere. There is no escaping the all-seeing eyes of God. We praise and thank Him for watching over us with His all-seeing eyes. It is a blessing to know that the God of our creation never sleeps nor slumber and we are protected under His all-seeing eyes.
With the assured knowledge that the eyes of the Lord are upon us; He hears our cry and answers (Psalm 34:15). O' What a God to have and to glorify!

Unseen Hand of God: Isaiah 41:13

Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

In light of the chaotic situations that exist in our society today will cause anxiety, but allow me to encourage all to take heart because we are protected by the unseen hand of God.
The question becomes who is this God? He is the God who is the creator of all creations and sustains all of His creations. He is the God who laid the foundations of the world. He is the God who separated night from day. He is the God who hung the sun, moon, and stars in the sky and they obey His commands. He is the God who created man in His likeness and image. He is the God who speaks to the wind and the raging sea and say, "Peace be still." He is the God with unseen hands, but yet He rules and super rules.
He is the God who holds us in the hollow of His unseen hands. That said, let us humble ourselves under the mighty unseen hand of God (1 Peter 5:6).

God's Creative Works: Genesis 1:1-31

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Over the past two Sundays, our Sunday school lessons have been taking a reflective look at the creative works of God. This Sunday we will look at God creation of man and the magnificent way in which all humanity was created.
All of God's creation was a systematic process and everything God created was good. This means God Himself put His stamp of approval on His creative works. He separated day from night; He created and set the sun, moon, and stars in place giving them their purpose and functions. All creation has a purpose and functions as God designed.
Reflecting on humanity and the complex structure that we are we stand in awe of the one and only true God. More importantly, reflecting on the creative works of God we can say what a mighty God.
We serve a God who has no beginning or end; He is Alpha and Omega. He sits high and looks low. He is the unseen hands watching over His creations.

Clam in the Midst of the Storm: Mark 4:39-40

And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?

Today in America we are in a dark place in our government lies have become the norm, hate has become commonplace and right has become wrong. Those of us who are used to right being right and the truth is what matters as well as having your character to speak for you. What we are experiencing in today's society causes many to worry and ask what has happened to the America we once knew when people spoke the truth and it mattered.
Lies, deceit, hate, and bigotry causes us to wonder when will justice be done and truth, love, kindness, and respect become normal. It seems as those days are gone forever. I am here to say, God's standards are what going to judge all evildoers and they will be punished according to His righteousness. Evildoers will soon be cut down like a tree and will wither like a green herb (Psalm 37:1).
There is calm in the midst of the storm; His name is Jesus; our mighty warrior in any battle. Therefore, we must keep our focus and our poise as we hold to the truth. Jesus is still in control, just as He spoke to the forces of nature and told the wind and the waves of the sea and said: "Peace be still." He will speak to the craziness that is emanating from the Whitehouse and there will be a calm that will resonate throughout this country.
All hope is not lost; this storm is ending. "Peace be still."

Pray For Your Enemy:Psalm 37:1-4

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good, so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Why pray for your enemy you might ask?  We pray our enemy because as stated in our scripture texts they will soon be cut down like the grass and will wither as the green herb. We pray for our enemy because Deuteronomy 32:35 states, "Vengeance is Mine and recompense; their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them.’
God will bring about justice to all evil doers and His justice is swift and complete. God knows the hearts of men and He has His set time to bring all injustice to an end. Yes, God is longsuffering and it appears as though evildoers are getting away with their evil deeds but we are to trust in the Lord for His perfect timing and true justice.
What we are to do is to keep our eyes focused on God. We know God hears and answers prayers.  James 5:16 states in part, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
That being said, we who are being persecuted are to take heed to our scripture text which states, Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
In conclusion, do not worry about the evil man, because his days are numbered. Trust in the Lord and His righteousness. We the persecuted be right ourselves.
Sincere prayers will win any battle.

Our Majestic God: Psalm 93:1-5

The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, forever.

Today's message is a reminder of the majesty of God who created and sustains everything. All of God's creations obey His will and move at His command. Even the flood waters of the rivers, oceans, and lakes when overflowing their banks, obey His command. When the angry flood waters rise to a certain peak, they cease at His command, simply because He is mightier than they are; even the many unseen galaxies is under His command. What a God!
Our Majestic God is superior to all other gods; He is from everlasting to everlasting; even His throne is everlasting.

Friends: John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Our scripture text provides us with the true definition of friends; Jesus Christ laid down His life for all humanity and those who accept His atoning work is considered His friend.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a friend as one attached to another by affection or esteem. Many of us will say we have friends, but can we measure the strength of that friendship is in need the person is there to give assistance or a listening ear? Proverbs 18:24 speak of friends on these terms; a man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. I was raised with this verse when being taught on what true friendship is. I have lived long enough to have and experience true friendship. 1 Samuel 18:3 is an example of true friendship. Jonathan was friend enough to tell David what his faults were and still the two remained friends.
Lastly, I was taught to choose my friends who are like-minded; in Christ all believers are like-minded--having the mind of Christ; loving all as Christ loved us all and gave His life for us.
What a friend we have in Jesus? A friend we can call anytime day or night. A friend we can tell all of our troubles to. There is no friend like Jesus Christ.
