How Uplifting!

I've been told that I need to put something uplifting here on this blog. These are some of the things God has shown me through His word and they are definitely uplifting!

It's uplifting to know that though this world and even our churches may be swarming with demons, our God is bigger still and He will conquer all:

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. Revelation 20:10-11

It's uplifting to know that no matter what exalted position a person may seek, they can never keep it. Though they combine all the strength and support of their entire network of "friends", God will pry the glory from their grip.

Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Proverbs 16:5

It's uplifting to know that no matter what others may try to do to entangle our lives, no matter how they hide their tracks, no matter how good of a show that they put on, we can take comfort in the words of the Preacher:

For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:14

God's word never changes!

How uplifting!
