READ the scriptures I found!
Today is my 54th birthday. 🙂
I’m a blessed and happy man. I have a loving wife and five wonderful adult children who love and serve God, and so far, one brilliant and handsome grandson.
For the last 30 years or so, I have made it a tradition on my birthday, to look through the Word of God on the corresponding chapter and verse of the year I’m celebrating. I look for things that might motivate, inspire or encourage me or perhaps be a bit of a theme for the year ahead of me for life and ministry.
Check what I just found.
*Deut. 5:4 The Lord talks to you face-to-face on the mountain from the midst of the fire.
*1 Sam. 5:4 Dagon, the false god/idol falls on its face before the Ark of the Lord.
*2Kings 5:4 The Lord gives rest on every side, no enemy or evil can touch me.
*Amos 5:4 Seek me and live!
*Luke 5:4 Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch!
*1 Peter 5:4 When the Chief Shepherd appears, I will receive an an unfading crown of glory.
*1 John 5:4 This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.
Wow! I can live and proceed on these. The presence & the power of God, destroying false gods and idols, God giving me rest & protection, seeking Him and living life to the full, launching out into the deep for a great harvest of souls and ministry, looking forward to my eternal reward when I see Him, and overcoming everything by faith in the Living Word of God. Let’s go 54, this is going to be great.! 😃❤️
