1: Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
2: The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
3: The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
4: I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
5: Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
6: And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
7: All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
8: An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
9: Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
10: But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
11: By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
12: And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.
13: Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
† When Christ returns, He will no longer be on the throne of mercy, He will be on the throne of justice. The Lion of Judah will Roar, and the world will know that He is God!
† The things that you cherish most are often the things that your heart desires and the word of God reminds us throughout the Bible about the importance of our heart. You have to have your heart focused on the Lord if you want to achieve and accomplish the divine will that He has designed and ordained for our lives, and to walk by faith not by sight.
† No matter what we go through in our lives knowing that there is a GOD who sees us with loving arms to draw us back to Him. Man looketh on the outward appearence but GOD looks on the heart!!!

PSALM 35:1-28 (KJV)
1: Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
2: Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
3: Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
4: Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
5: Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
6: Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
7: For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
8: Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
9: And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
10: All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
11: False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12: They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
13: But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
14: I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
15: But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
16: With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

18: I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
19: Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
20: For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21: Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
22: This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
23: Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
24: Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
25: Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
26: Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
27: Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
28: And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
The Beginning of the World1 In the beginning God created the sky and the earth.2 The earth was empty and had no form. Darkness covered the ocean, and God's Spirit was moving over the water.
3 Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.4 God saw that the light was good, so he divided the light from the darkness.5 God named the light "day" and the darkness "night." Evening passed, and morning came. This was the first day.
6 Then God said, "Let there be something to divide the water in two."7 So God made the air and placed some of the water above the air and some below it.8 God named the air "sky." Evening passed, and morning came. This was the second day.
9 Then God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered together so the dry land will appear." And it happened.10 God named the dry land "earth" and the water that was gathered together "seas." God saw that this was good.
11 Then God said, "Let the earth produce plants—some to make grain for seeds and others to make fruits with seeds in them. Every seed will produce more of its own kind of plant." And it happened.12 The earth produced plants with grain for seeds and trees that made fruits with seeds in them. Each seed grew its own kind of plant. God saw that all this was good.13 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the third day.
14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the sky to separate day from night. These lights will be used for signs, seasons, days, and years.15 They will be in the sky to give light to the earth." And it happened.
16 So God made the two large lights. He made the brighter light to rule the day and made the smaller light to rule the night. He also made the stars.17 God put all these in the sky to shine on the earth,18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that all these things were good.19 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the fourth day.
20 Then God said, "Let the water be filled with living things, and let birds fly in the air above the earth."
21 So God created the large sea animals and every living thing that moves in the sea. The sea is filled with these living things, with each one producing more of its own kind. He also made every bird that flies, and each bird produced more of its own kind. God saw that this was good.22 God blessed them and said, "Have many young ones so that you may grow in number. Fill the water of the seas, and let the birds grow in number on the earth."23 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the fifth day.
24 Then God said, "Let the earth be filled with animals, each producing more of its own kind. Let there be tame animals and small crawling animals and wild animals, and let each produce more of its kind." And it happened.
25 So God made the wild animals, the tame animals, and all the small crawling animals to produce more of their own kind. God saw that this was good.
26 Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image and likeness. And let them rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the tame animals, over all the earth, and over all the small crawling animals on the earth."
27 So God created human beings in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female.28 God blessed them and said, "Have many children and grow in number. Fill the earth and be its master. Rule over the fish in the sea and over the birds in the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
29 God said, "Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.30 I have given all the green plants as food for every wild animal, every bird of the air, and every small crawling animal." And it happened.31 God looked at everything he had made, and it was very good. Evening passed, and morning came. This was the sixth day.lick to add text, images, and other content
PSALM 36:1-12 (KJV)
1: The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2: For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
3: The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.
4: He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
5: Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
6: Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
7: How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
8: They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
9: For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
10: O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11: Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
12: There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
PSALM 38:1-22 (KJV)
1: O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2: For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
3: There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
4: For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5: My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
6: I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
7: For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.
8: I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
9: Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
10: My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
11: My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
12: They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
13: But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
14: Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15: For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
16: For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
17: For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
18: For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19: But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20: They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
21: Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
22: Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
1: I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
2: I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3: My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
4: LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
5: Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
6: Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
7: And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
8: Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9: I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
10: Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
11: When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
12: Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
13: O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
PSALM 40:1-17 (KJV)1: I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
1 Sing to the Lord, you who do what is right;
honest people should praise him.
2 Praise the Lord on the harp;
make music for him on a ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing a new song to him;
play well and joyfully.
4 God's word is true,
and everything he does is right.
5 He loves what is right and fair;
the Lord's love fills the earth.
6 The sky was made at the Lord's command.
By the breath from his mouth, he made all the stars.
7 He gathered the water of the sea into a heap.
He made the great ocean stay in its place.
8 All the earth should worship the Lord;
the whole world should fear him.
9 He spoke, and it happened.
He commanded, and it appeared.
10 The Lord upsets the plans of nations;
he ruins all their plans.
11 But the Lord's plans will stand forever;
his ideas will last from now on.
12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his very own.
13 The Lord looks down from heaven
and sees every person.
14 From his throne he watches
all who live on earth.
15 He made their hearts
and understands everything they do.
16 No king is saved by his great army.
No warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 Horses can't bring victory;
they can't save by their strength.
18 But the Lord looks after those who fear him,
those who put their hope in his love.
19 He saves them from death
and spares their lives in times of hunger.
20 So our hope is in the Lord.
He is our help, our shield to protect us.
21 We rejoice in him,
because we trust his holy name.
22 Lord, show your love to us
as we put our hope in you.
I fear nothing. Fear is the enemy of will. Will is what makes you take action. Fear is what stops you and makes you weak. Your will turns thought into reality. Anything you see in your mind, you can create. You just got to focus. No matter how bad things get, something good is out there, just over the horizon...You know... there is a saying in our planet, we say 'I am only human' We say it because we are vulnerable, we say it because we are afraid, but that does not mean that we are weak. Don't give into fear. Fight it.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. You already have all the resources you need- within you!
You are not at the mercy of the devil and the storms he is bringing into your life!! You have been given power and authority over him but if you dont speak Gods Word and His Truth then the enemy is gonna continue tormenting you! Rise up with power and in faith and open your mouth! God spoke things into existence! We must SPEAK! Every demon will flee at the Name of Jesus!! But you have to open your mouth!!!
♥Even if you feel the world around you is harsh and unforgiving, be the one to show the world you believe in love ♥ You believe there is Hope ♥ and let your heart blossom, others might then believe too!♥
"No wonder my heart is filled with joy, and my mouth shouts his praises! My body rests in HOPE." Acts 2:26
"Then Jesus said to the disciples, "Have FAITH in God." Mark 11:22
"I am leaving you with a gift -- PEACE of mind and heart. And the PEACE I give isn't like the PEACE the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid."
"But I say, LOVE your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!" Matthew 5:14
"If you BELIEVE, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." Matthew 21:22
Let not the wise man glory in his own wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this; that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the LORD ... Jeremiah 9:23-24 ╬ ི♥ྀ ♥¸.•*¨♥ ۩۞۩ஜ★ஜ۩۞۩✶*¨*.✶*¨♥
God must be the object of our faith, and we must believe that He has our eternal benefit in mind. We should acknowledge that He has the perfect plan for our lives and that He stands at attention to reward us when we earnestly and diligently seek Him. Jeremiah 29:11, Hebrews 11:6.
There is strength when we find ourselves at the end of our rope. In fact, we serve a God who lives for us resting in that place...holding on for our very lives. It's a beautiful truth that in our weakness, brokenness & defeat, He meets us & proceeds to paint a beautiful picture in spite of our circumstances...thus robbing them of any power they have over our lives!!!!!!!!
"Love is so tender, so soft, so kind, yet so deliciously divine it will blow your mind!" -God Bless you all!!!!♥
Psalm 150 ☀ Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.
