GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE ….
“Is It Well with Your Soul?”
Is it well with your soul? This is a question Pastor Brice asked our Bible Study class a couple weeks ago. He was teaching on: “How to Safeguard Your Soul.” Psalm 119:65-72
Summary: We can safeguard our soul by praising God and testifying to His goodness (this combats anxiety and depression). By letting God teach us His Way (He leads and guides – we must follow and participate). By not resisting the testing that God will put us through (expect trials and lean on His Word). By experiencing the rewards (pass the tests – reap the rewards).
When you hear: “Is it well with your soul?” Pause a moment. Your spiritual health is based on how you read the Word – heed the Word – and lead using the Word of God.
“May the Lord bless the readers – hearers – and doers of His Word.”
How many times have you heard this blessing? Have you ever given this blessing a second thought? I realize that we are all individuals and are all on different levels of our Godly Walk. Though, we have been brought out of the world, our spiritual health, like our physical health, will fluctuate throughout our lives and will sometimes take a hit, so to speak. However, ….
“Every believer is equipped.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
“Your instructions are more valuable to me than millions in gold and silver.” – Psalm 119:72 (NLT)
Be committed to following God’s instructions. There will always be choices to make – two roads to travel. The Wrong Rd. and the High Wy. During our life’s journey we sometimes will make turns leading onto the Wrong Rd. Life happens. Persevere! God has you! Work your way back to the High Wy. Work your way back to God’s Way. Be God centered – keep God involved.
“No matter what you do, make sure you get the Hand of God involved.” – “To get the Hand of God involved is to get the Word of God involved.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me.” – Psalm 119:73 (KJV)
“That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty; that ye might fear the Lord your God forever” – Joshua 4:24 (KJV)
God’s Hand is waiting on you. Reach up – grab – hold on to God’s unchanging Hands. Singing: “Build your hopes on things eternal – Hold to God’s unchanging Hands.” Sing, shout, praise!
