But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is from the Lord .”
Jonah 2:9 NASB
Will you so much as open your mouth today in praise to your Lord who brings salvation.
Holy holy holy is the Lord God almighty!
How Excellent is His name above all others!
Heaven and Earth will pass away, but the Lord God will bring Salvation to my soul!
He is my rock and my strength!
He is my shelter during the storm and He is my provision when it passes!
On May 29th I was sitting in church and all I could hear in my head was “prepare for rain”, “prepare for rain”, over and over again,”prepare for rain”. I posted it that day on this blog and I had no idea what it meant for sure. I had guesses, but now after what happened in Louisiana, I know exactly what it meant.
Now, today, all I can hear is “bring the sacrifice of priase”, because the Lord God has something stored up for you after the rains are gone. Salvation comes from the Lord!
“Otherwise if you bless in the spirit only, how will the one who fills the place of the ungifted say the “Amen” at your giving of thanks, since he does not know what you are saying? For you are giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not edified.”
1 Corinthians 14:16-17 NASB
But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.
Acts 16:25-26 NASB
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
John 14:27 NASB
I read this in my reading plan today, “Hebrew Words Every Christian Should Know”, in the YouVersion Bible app. I believe this to be a well timed coincidence.
“The word Jerusalem in Hebrew isYerushalayim which is made up of two Hebrew words; yeru which means “you will see” and shalom which means “the peace of God”. So Jerusalem is supposed to be the place where you will see the peace of God.”
In the Book of Revelation we read that the followers of God will live in a “new Jerusalem” in God’s Kingdom – and we will see the peace of God. Jesus told his followers that “… the Kingdom of God is within you”, which means the “peace of God” is within us.”
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”Romans 10:4 NASB
