Praise God for Bringing Us This Far

At the ancient festivals of Israel like Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles the people would thank God for what He had done in the past. For example: the history behind Passover is acknowledging God’s help when He passed by the blood-marked homes during the tenth plague called the death of Egyptian first-born. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a lamb, upon seeing this, the Spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-borns in these homes, hence the name of the festival.

Today, we should praise God for passing over each of us marked with the blood of Christ so that we are spared from death eternal into life everlasting. Our needs are provided for because there is abundant life and eternal rewards through His Son.

His Word provides light for understanding and awareness which allows bright days even during dark times. Each person is of equal standing and God has concern for the joy of His people. He has great plans for our life because we have come so far. In Genesis 1:27, the Word says God created us in His own image. The God of the universe miraculously put us together in our Mother’s womb and He’s made us each unique with potential to do amazing things.

  1. Shalom!! Mark, it has been a blessing this morning to awaken to the presence of “Elohim.” I appreciate your time, talents and treasures. I will continue to drink and sup with you as the holy spirit leads. Thank you for stopping by my modest blog: Wow some of you guys pages make me feel out of touch. The enemy is a lie, I will continue to mature as God aligns me with His greatness in others.

    Thank you for the message, Mark. I can tell you this life of mine has “been no bed of roses.” The trials I have endured can only be compared to Paul’s. That is no exaggeration, Mark. If I were of a carnal mind, I would of given up 40+ years ago to depression and the Lord knows what else.

    Yet, through the power of prayer and the Grace of Almighty Jehovah God I have been where I have been and came through the other side unharmed. Before, during and after I have placed my everlasting thrust and faith in God as my protector and savior….. And through each given prayers of thanks for the burdens given me, walking beside me and knowing His plan is at work. I believe in the words given us in Psalms 100: “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
    2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
    3 Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;[a]
    We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
    4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
    5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

    I am a living witness to Psalms 100, Mark; and, so very proud to be!
