Bless the Lord

 

praise

Leviticus 1:1-3 And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.

Psalm 100:4-5 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

Genesis 49:22-2 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

Hebrews 13:20-21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Abide in the vine

grapes

John 15:1-4

I am the true vine,

And my Father is the husbandman.

Every branch in me that beareth not fruit

He taketh away:

And every branch that beareth fruit,

He purgeth it,

That it may bring forth more fruit.

Now ye are clean through the word

Which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you.

As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,

Except it abide in the vine;

No more can ye,

Except ye abide in me.

John 15:8

Herein is my Father glorified,

That ye bear much fruit;

So shall ye be my disciples.

Colossians 3:12-17

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,

Holy and beloved,

Bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind,

Meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another,

And forgiving one another,

If any man have a quarrel against any:

Even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

And above all these things put on charity,

Which is the bond of perfectness.

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,

To the which also ye are called in one body;

And be ye thankful.

Let the word of Christ

Dwell in you richly in all wisdom;

Teaching and admonishing one another

In psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

Singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,

Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,

Giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

1 Peter 4:11 KJV

If any man speak,

Let him speak as the oracles of God;

If any man minister,

Let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:

That God in all things may be glorified

Through Jesus Christ,

To whom be praise and dominion

For ever and ever.

Amen.

Forgiveness

Colossians 1:12-14 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet (worthy) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Give thanks to the Lord

thanks

1 Chronicles 29:12-13 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

Psalm 30:11-12 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

ASK of Him

A impossible

Mark 5:30-34 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Luke 6:17-19 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

John 4:10, 14 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. …whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

GOOD NEWS

he arose

Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Luke 7:50-8:1 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him.

Acts 13:29-33 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre. But God raised him from the dead: And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people. And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
