I started today with this verse:
Yours, O Lord , is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord , and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.
1 Chronicles 29:11 NLT
As I read this “verse of the day” my mind went to the ending of The Lord’s prayer. ..
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’ (
Matthew 6:13 NASB). Some manuscripts added that where some just stop at, “deliver us from evil.”
I’m sure people could get into a deep theological debate or argument about why that ending was left out or added but I’d rather focus on praying without ceasing, why stop at, “Amen.”
I wrote a post a while back about how “Amen” is not “The end”.
With every breath may the Lord hear our hearts.
Know that He is your loving Father and He wants to reside, live in, ‘dwell’ in us. Making our bodies His temple.
Don’t worry about how dirty you are inside, He’ll clean us up from the inside.
He is all powerful, He is everything and as a good friend reminded me today, if He is in you, you will find full satisfaction, regardless of circumstances we face financially, physically, mentally, environmentally or other wise.
God bless you and you, bless God.
In Christ, Beetle
I took the above picture outside a local library (St. Augustine, FL southeast branch) there baby ducks were following the mother duck. I didn’t get the ducklings in this photo because they were hesitating a little bit on get into the water. May we not hesitate to follow our Father as close as possible.
Interesting fact someone shared with me once, ducks float naturally. There are only two times when their body’s just won’t work right in their environment,
- When they are afraid
- When they are upset/angry
