1. God keeps His Word, and expects the same of us.
===========================================

From the beginning of man's history, the Creator has progressively made Himself known through His Word and works. "Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?" (Jeremiah 23:23). Though man often complains that life has no instruction manual, the Faithful God has always made Himself known to man. "1 God, Who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 hath in these Last Days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds" (Hebrews 1:1-2). The very fact that the Son of God, Who is the "Word of Life" (1John 1:1), came into this world as human flesh, demonstrates the importance that God places upon making His Word known. "19 For it pleased the Father that in Him [Jesus] should all fulness dwell... 2:3 In Whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge... 9 For in Him [Jesus] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily" (Colossians 1:19; 2:3, 9).

Solomon's prayer at the dedication of the Temple, which Ussher's Chronology places at 1004 BC, indicates the understanding that Israel's godly king possessed of the character of God, about 3,000 years after man's creation. "There is no God like Thee, in Heaven above, or on Earth beneath, Who keepest covenant [i.e., performs His agreement or contract] and mercy with Thy servants that walk before Thee with all their heart" (1Kings 8:23). Whatever else that could be said of the Living God, Solomon knew that Jehovah keeps His Word, which binds Him to the Saints with an ironclad covenant. "Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, the Faithful God, which keepeth covenant [Hebrew, berith] and mercy with them that love Him and keep His Commandments to a thousand generations" (Deuteronomy 7:9). Of course, all that remains, is for man to be correspondingly faithful at keeping his word to God. "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48). "He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked" (1John 2:6).


2 Thought of the Month : TENSION
==========================

++    The moment you are in tension

++    You will lose your attention

++    Then you are in total confusion and you'll feel irritation

++    Then you'll spoil personal relation Ultimately, you won't get co-operation

++    Then you'll make things complication

++    Then your BP may also rise caution

++    And you may have to take medication

++    Instead, understand the situation

++    And try to think about the solution

++    Many problems will be solved by discussion

++    Which will work out better in your profession

++    Don't think it's my free suggestion

++    It is only for your prevention

++    If you understand my intention

++    You'll never come again to tension

 

Mother's Day : TO MY CHILD
========================
 

Mother's Day : TO MY CHILD
========================
* Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face
  and laugh when I feel like crying.

* Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to
   wear, and smile and say how perfect it is.

* Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry,
  and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

* Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink,
   and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

* Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble
   when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you
   one if he comes by

* Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to
   be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made
   where you are concerned.

* Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story
  about how you were born and how much I love you.

* Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the
   porch and count all the stars.

* Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray,
   I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask him for nothing,

Except one more day...........everyday........ to be with you ..............

FOREVER.....

4. The Holy Bible - A Definition of Hope
==============================

What is hope? Is it a  kind of unsure optimism? The modern idea of hope is “to wish for, to expect, but without certainty of the fulfillment; to desire very much, but with no real assurance of getting your desire.”

In Scripture, according to the Hebrew and Greek words translated by the word “hope” and according to the biblical usage, hope is an indication of certainty. “Hope” in Scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.” Though archaic today in modern terms, hope is akin to trust and a confident expectation.

Hope may refer to the activity of hoping, or to the object hoped for—the content of one’s hope. By its very nature, hope stresses two things: (a) futurity, and (b) invisibility. It deals with things we can’t see or haven’t received or both .

Romans 8:24-25 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

Biblically, from the standpoint of the object hoped for, hope is synonymous with salvation and its many blessings, past, present, and future, as promised in Scripture. This is true even with what we have already received as believers because these blessings come under the category of what we cannot see. We may see some of the results, but it still requires faith and hope. For example, we do not see the justifying work of God, the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to our account, nor do we see the indwelling of the Holy Spirit when we are saved, nor our co-union with Christ. We believe this to be a reality, but this is a matter of our hope. We believe in the testimony of God in the Word and hope for the results in our lives.

In summary, hope is the confident expectation, the sure certainty that what God has promised in the Word is true, has occurred, and or will in accordance with God’s sure Word.
God is called “the God of Hope.” This means He is the source of all real hope. If we are going to have hope (confident expectation), it must come from Him for He alone has the power to give it.

Psalm 62:5 My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace.  So this  eternal hope leads to eternal life with Lord Jesus Christ.
