Simply Thankful to God

By sspiehs3

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

1 Chronicles 16:34 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/1ch.16.34.NLT

This verse is part of a song King David gave to Asaph and Levites when the Ark of the Covenant was returned to the place King David had prepared for it. The Ark of the Covenant was key to understanding “God with us” and God’s everlasting covenant. This was and is a really big deal.

In some ways this reminds us of Christmas.  “God with us”. Through Jesus, God came to be with us, to live and dwell with us. He came to reconcile and restore us to God.  He is the way, the truth and the life.  God, through Jesus, took on all of our sin. Those who believe in Jesus and what He has done for mankind, are adopted into God’s presence forever.

In other ways the Ark of the Covenant reminds us of the ongoing presence of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit dwells with us, comforts in distress, guides us into truth, and helps us know how to speak and respond when under pressure for our faith.

Today, I am simply thankful to God for His redeeming, restoring and reconciling work in my life.

Thank you God.

Encouragement:  Take time to thank God for who He is and what He does in your life every day. Believe in Jesus. Be grateful to the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life.

Prayer: 

Dear God,

Thank you for living with me, with us, with this world. Thank you for Jesus reconciling us to You forever.  Thank you for the Holy Spirit who dwells within us every day. Thank You for adoption into your family forever that includes full acceptance.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
