Has God Chosen You?
picture for forum


Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Psalm 65:4
Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

What does it mean to be chosen of God?

Answer:
I thought this verse was interesting. The beliefs in predestination is not something I completely understand. However, sometimes when children are adopted, I have heard it said of them that they were chosen. Another thought is of the story of Esther. When anyone approached the king without being called by him first, they risked being put to death. It is a picture of a king being the ultimate authority and to be reverenced and feared. We should have this same reverence and fear before God who is the king of kings. We are allowed to come before him when we have been washed in the blood of Christ. We are then allowed to dwell in the presence of Almighty God.

A new Bible study link has been posted both in the comments and the forum page itself. I am going to start posting them on the forum page to make them easier to find. I have also added a Scripture memory guide/plan if any one would like to memorize Scripture with me. Check the forum page itself as I may make notes, ask questions, and post new information there from week to week. I would love to here your comments. I really enjoyed writing this week's study, Armor of God - Belt of Truth.

This is the link to the group I do these Scripture writings with on Facebook if anyone else is interested in doing so also.

Scripture writing - James 3:13-15


Scripture:
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

Observations:
Verse 13- If you are wise and have knowledge, then you should be able to show good works with good clean conversation with humbleness and wisdom. (cursing uncontrollably is considered foolishness in the Bible. This is a verse that indirectly states this.
Verse 14- You should not lie and try to cover up any bitterness, foolishness, or strife. You should confess it immediately, and seek repentance.
Verse 15- Bitterness, foolishness, and strife does not come from God. It is wicked and devilish. It is earthly and sensual - relating to physical gratification.

Application:
Bitterness, foolishness, and strife gratify us physically in the flesh for the moment, but in the end are destructive to us and to others. They are not from God. They are promoted by the devil. They produce wickedness.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help me to never harbor bitterness, foolishness or strife in my heart. Teach me wisdom and knowledge so I can do good works with good clean conversation.
In the name of Jesus,
Amen

Make-up Scripture writing - Matthew 21:21-22


For March 28th, 2021


Scripture:
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Observations:
Verse 21- If you have faith without doubts, your prayers can move mountains.
Verse 22- Anything you ask for in prayer with mountain moving faith, you will receive.

Application:
Pray in faith without doubting.

Prayer:
God,
I want to have faith that will move mountains. Teach me what it means to have that kind of faith. Your word also says that if any of us lack faith, to let them ask of God who gives to all men liberally (not sparingly ). So please give me that type of faith.
In the name of Jesus,
Amen

Prompt โ€œThings we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect,โ€ JK Rowling wrote in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
What does she mean? Have you found everything or even some things that you have lost?

I don't think things we lose always come back to us, but the things that truly matter or are meant to be do come back. And they don't always do it the way you would expect them to come back to you.

LEPRECHAUNS  (E)
And surely you should believe.
#2246219 by Monty


Write about Leprechauns today.

They are a fun legend for stories. I don't believe they are real. According to Wikipedia, they are male fairies from Irish folklore. Apparently, Santa Clause is more believable and based on true stories as posed to these little creatures dressed in green. However, they do make for some really fun fairy tales, literally. ๐Ÿ˜‚
