"Faye's daily words of encouragement " # 88 Todays word is : Death"
Definition of the word Death: Is the end of life as we know it, loss of life or extinction of life.
Psalms chapter 23 - 4 : As I walk in the valley of the shadow of death; I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod thy staff they comfort me.
Isaiah chapter 25 - 8 : He will swallow up death in victory: and the Lord God will wipe away the tears from off of all faces; and rebuke of his people shall take away from all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.
John chapter 4 - 47 : When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee; he went until him , and besought him that he would come down , and heal his son; for he was at the point of death.
John chapter 5 - 24 : Verily,Verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from life unto death.
Every day that we live, can and should be a day to praise and thank God for waking us out of our slumber. Death is a thief that none of us can get around it, because one day, we will have to die to God; just as Jesus died for our sins. death is inescapable,; there's no way, we can live, without dying in the end. We have to remember that Jesus is with us through all things even unto death; when we breathe our last breath. Death is a constant companion ; even though we don't dwell on it, it's always there, looking , and waiting to take possession .
In all our pain, trials, tribulations; death is a constant threat, but thanks be to God that we don't have to be afraid of the terror by night or by day, because Jesus is with us . We don't have to worry about the pestilence or danger that walk in darkness or the destruction that waseth at noon day. Aren't we blessed that God gives his angels charge over us; to keep us in all our ways,. Death is an end that we have meet one day. but we want go willingly, because of the life we treasure to live.
