Psalm 40 – KJV

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 I waited patiently for the Lord; and he
inclined unto me, and heard my cry. 2 He
brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon
a rock, and established my goings. 3 And
he hath put a new song in my mouth, even
praise unto our God: many shall see it,
and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. 4
Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord
his trust, and respecteth not the proud,
nor such as turn aside to lies. 5 Many, O
Lord my God, are thy wonderful works
which thou hast done, and thy thoughts
which are to us-ward: they cannot be
reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would
declare and speak of them, they are more
than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not
desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt
offering and sin offering hast thou not
required. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the
volume of the book it is written of me, 8 I
delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy
law is within my heart. 9 I have preached
righteousness in the great congregation:
lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord,
thou knowest. 10 I have not hid thy
righteousness within my heart; I have
declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation:
I have not concealed thy lovingkindness
and thy truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies
from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness
and thy truth continually preserve me. 12
For innumerable evils have compassed me
about: mine iniquities have taken hold
upon me, so that I am not able to look up;
they are more than the hairs of mine
head: therefore my heart faileth me. 13 Be
pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord,
make haste to help me. 14 Let them be
ashamed and confounded together that
seek after my soul to destroy it; let them
be driven backward and put to shame that
wish me evil. 15 Let them be desolate for
a reward of their shame that say unto me,
Aha, aha. 16 Let all those that seek thee
rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as
love thy salvation say continually, The Lord
be magnified. 17 But I am poor and needy;
yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art
my help and my deliverer; make no
tarrying, O my God.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR ( you might just get it )

You pray to God to send you a partner in
your life and when He does, you don’t
treat them right. You have been so badly
damaged by past relationships that it
makes you resort back to your old ways of
doing things.
You pray to God for a job just months down the line you develop negativity towards it.
You need to know that you are ready to
handle what God is sending you. Be
prepared for the blessings that is about to
come your way because when it does, you
need to take care of it. Be careful what
you pray for. You might just get it.

EMMANUEL , God with us .

In the Bible, Jesus has many names that
identify His character. One of those names
is Emmanuel, which means “God with us.”
Before Jesus came to earth, the Spirit of
God resided in the temple. The people had
to go through all sorts of rituals to become
clean enough to go near Him. Now, as
believers, we are the temple of the Holy
Spirit. When we accept Jesus as our Lord
and Savior, He is the one who cleanses us
and actually makes His home in our hearts.
Isn’t it good to know that God is with us?
He is closer than the very air that we
breathe. His peace is always with us. His
joy is always with us. His power is always
with us, and His victory is always with us.
The next time you feel alone, remember,
you serve Emmanuel — the God who is
always with you!

YOU ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY (WHY CAN’T YOU JUST LISTEN?)

In any relationship listening without
interrupting your partner is very
important. You see, when you don’t listen,
it says many things. It says that you don’t
respect your partner and what they have
to say doesn’t mean anything to you. It
shows that you are not patient because it
takes patience to wait for the other person
to finish what they are saying.
It also shows that you don’t have any self
control which is to keep quiet while your
partner is speaking. It also shows that you
are only interested in yourself and your
own thoughts. James 1:19 says we should
be quick to listen but slow to speak.
Nothing, when you are in the middle of an
argument will get resolved if you both keep
interrupting each other or talking over one
another and getting louder and louder in
the process. Hear me when I tell you this.
If you get this area under control, your
relationship will only get better.
