“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
Have you ever been to the ocean? I love the ocean.
You know the best part?
There is never just one wave!
It’s wave after wave, more and more!
Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!
When You’re Between a Rock and a Hard Place
But now, God’s Message,
the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
the One who got you started, Israel:
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you:
all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
That’s how much you mean to me!
That’s how much I love you!
I’d sell off the whole world to get you back,
trade the creation just for you.
“So don’t be afraid: I’m with you.
I’ll round up all your scattered children,
pull them in from east and west.
I’ll send orders north and south:
‘Send them back.
Return my sons from distant lands,
my daughters from faraway places.
I want them back, every last one who bears my name,
every man, woman, and child
Whom I created for my glory,
yes, personally formed and made each one.’”
Get the blind and deaf out here and ready—
the blind (though there’s nothing wrong with their eyes)
and the deaf (though there’s nothing wrong with their ears).
Then get the other nations out here and ready.
Let’s see what they have to say about this,
how they account for what’s happened.
Let them present their expert witnesses
and make their case;
let them try to convince us what they say is true.
“But you are my witnesses.” God’s Decree.
“You’re my handpicked servant
So that you’ll come to know and trust me,
understand both that I am and who I am.
Previous to me there was no such thing as a god,
nor will there be after me.
I, yes I, am God.
I’m the only Savior there is.
I spoke, I saved, I told you what existed
long before these upstart gods appeared on the scene.
And you know it, you’re my witnesses,
you’re the evidence.” God’s Decree.
“Yes, I am God.
I’ve always been God
and I always will be God.
No one can take anything from me.
I make; who can unmake it?”
Hey family, meet my friend Nate. He shared an amazing testimony this past Sunday with us at Janesville Apostolic Ministries and I asked him to share it with all of you.
Good Afternoon Diana sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. Here is what happened. My mom was picking Emily and I up from school and I set my backpack in the car and went to get in but was not in and mom began to pull away and the back tire rolled toward my foot. I knew I was going to get run over so I just said “Lord I trust You.” I am happy to report that even though I was taken by ambulance to the ER I did not have any broken bones or scrapes only a small tear in one of the ligaments in my foot. There were no bruises on my foot either. Furthermore, I did not require any pain medications either. The doctors said that I would be worse the next day but I was doing better the next day God is awesome!
Like Nate told me later, there is absolutely no scientific explanation of why his foot is not smashed. It got run over by a car! Isn’t that like 3000 lbs or something? No broken bones, no bruises…wow, God is soooooo cool! What a testimony!
