Jesus Lifted Me – Vol 1

Just For You

Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

I am 66 years old and I have now been a believer, longer than a nonbeliever. My supernatural spiritual gifts from the beginning, and continues to be, encouragement and service. I have learned many spiritual truths over the years, but none more important than the verse referenced above. As an encourager and a service oriented individual, you can imagine that over the years, it has been necessary to repeatedly exercise the traits described in the verse referenced above. The reward for doing this is that when I lay down at night, I have never had any trouble falling asleep. Another lesson that I have learned over the years, is that I do what I do for God‘s glory, and not for my own glory. I do not want man’s praise, but rather the praise that comes from God. God has been so faithful over the years providing for my needs, and giving me a sense of safety and security. I think I’ve learned that this, getting their needs met and a sense of safety and security, is what most people are depending on the world, and the world system to provide to them. They simply don’t know, for they have not been taught, that Satan has a counterfeit for everything of God, and that it is God who is the giver of all good things. God tells us in Jeremiah 29:11,“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This is what we can expect when we live our lives in accordance with God‘s will and purpose for our lives. I think we can see all around us the result of living life the world’s way/Satan’s way. So my friends, I urge you to put into practice those things stated in the verse referenced above, and be prepared to receive God’s forgiveness and his blessings. That’s simply what happens when we follow Christ’ example, as to how we should live our lives for God’s glory. All that Jesus did, He did just for you. Praise the holy name of Jesus!

Just For You

Just for you the flowers bloom,

With beauty beyond compare.

That’s God’s way of shinning through,

The days of darkest despair.

Just for you a baby cries,

When it enters the world brand new.

Like God you have an awesome job,

But the rewards are awesome too.

Just for you a chance is given,

To serve your fellow man.

Not for pay or a pat on the back,

But only because you can.

Just for you a loved one dies,

Before he’d made his mark.

After the grief passed you be,

The world didn’t seem as dark.

Just for you a storm blows up,

And dashes your hopes and plans.

Just when you thought all was lost,

Jesus took your hand.

Just for you God gave His Son,

To die a terrible death.

This is why we offer thanks,

With every living breath.

Just for you He went to the cross,

For crimes He didn’t do.

He suffered the pain and gave His life,

All this just for you.
