Marilyn Hickey reminds us: "Upon the shed blood of Jesus rests every facet of our covenant with God. Every promise, every provision in God’s Word, is ours through the blood of Jesus. Yet so many Christians have claimed only the cleansing from sin and missed the rest of what God has provided."

Marilyn in her devotional on the blood of Jesus said:

Cain’s offering displeased God because it was a sacrifice produced from human effort rather than complete faith in God’s provision.

Mankind will always hit a dead end when it tries to do everything by human effort. 

We can't recover from the Corona Virus by mans efforts.  It will take REPENTANCE today.  Can I get an amen?

Just came across an awesome passage:

The God-begotten are also the God-protected. The Evil One can't lay a hand on them. We know that we are held firm by God; it's only the people of the world who continue in the grip of the Evil One. 1 John 5:18, 19 MSG

How very true.  Blessings

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!


    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
