He will Speak Peace

God is SO good (I think I've said that before, eh?;). This week I had a brief unexpected trip to the hospital~which ultimately turned out fine, but was a bit scary for awhile~and while I was there I spent a few hours reading the Word and praying. He quickened Psalm 85:8-13 to me as I was praying about how to keep the days events from throwing me off track:

8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak,
For He will speak peace
To His people and to His saints;
But let them not turn back to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him,
That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yes, the LORD will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
13 Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.

~Psalm 85:8-13

A Good Word

Just time for a quick word- a prayer for you all from THE good word. I remember the first time I opened the book of Ephesians and started to realize what it was really about. It was a letter! It was a letter to the church! IM part of that church! This is a letter to!!! I often pray this prayer and the one in Chapter 3 for myself and others-God is so good, and he wants us to be able to comprehend how good, and how powerful He is within us. THAT IS JUST SO COOL!!!

"...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe..."
~Ephesians 1:17-19a
