RANDOM THOUGHTS OF GOD
It has been granted to (us) on behalf of Christ... to believe on Him... Philippians 1:29
My goal is to share the Love of Christ with all who will come and read of how He is at work in my life and can be in yours. May God bless you here.

ENOUGH WILL BE ENOUGH
journal entry will get loud; be prepared.
Psalm 46 this morning I suddenly realized that a favorite verse (10)
which calms many believers in times of stress, is not actually a very
love the seeming gentleness of “Be still and know that I am God.”
But I have always wondered why this gentle reminder is in this
slightly turbulent Psalm. Why does the subject turn from talking
about God's ability to control in a harsh and Godly manner,
and suddenly become a gentle “prompting” to us to trust Him.
Well. It apparently doesn't.
all versions use these words. Several use the Word, “CEASE! or
DESIST!” And some notes indicate that the phrase “Be still...”
could be translated: ENOUGH! And that would indicate that the words
are actually directed to those causing the CHAOS in the world
of sin. ENOUGH will be spoken and the sin and sinfulness will STOP!
It will happen in God's time, but it WILL happen.
with the wars!
with the murders and other crime!
with the chaotic uprisings and hate mongering!
with brutality and stubbornness against God and His people.
with the lack of commonsense replaced by stupidity and cruelty.
of not listening to God Almighty!
- “DESIST and learn that I am God, supreme over the
nations, supreme over the earth.” (caps mine)
- CEASE striving
and know that I am God; (caps mine)
STILL and know that I am God.” (caps mine)
I AM GOD!
is a reminder that God will not be eternally rejected. He will not
let sin go on forever. He will put an end to it. Anyone not covered
by the blood of Christ will be REJECTED by Him and will come to a
very bad ending. He will conquer; and He will be the last word on the
subject! Hallelu Yah! Amen.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who
has wrought desolations in the earth.
He makes wars to cease
to the end of the earth; He breaks
the bow and cuts
the spear in two; He burns
the chariots with fire.
that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be
exalted in the earth.”
