“Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.” Ps. 119:140
“Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Ps. 119:165

God is faithful to His promises! Here at CfC we experience His trustworthiness daily as we depend on the Lord for each and every need. In times of great challenge and uncertainty we can only testify of His peace in our hearts. The last few months we have had to face many uncertainties both physically and financially. Our area is suffering a water crisis due to a failure by local government to maintain the infrastructure. Pray with us for a resolution to these challenges.

“Come let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods….Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care.” (Psalm 95:1-3, 6-7)

The Psalmist invites us to remember the God who redeemed us. Note some of the descriptions he gives of God – Rock of salvation; LORD (Yahweh); Great God and King above all gods. How should we respond to this great God? Sing joyfully, shout with thanksgiving, and humbly kneel before Him. For what reason? He is our God, He is our Maker; we are His people, and we are under His care! Won’t you join us in worship to the King?

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)

“What does love look like? Augustine pictured love this way: ‘It has hands to help others. It has feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has ears to hear the sighs of men.’ In a word: Love looks like Jesus! Love talked about is easily turned aside. Love demonstrated is irresistible. And love modeled is the best way to learn how to love in return. ‘We  love because He first loved us.’” (1 John 4;19) (From Closer Walk New Testament by Walk Thru the Bible)

“How wonderful it is, how pleasant, when brothers live together in harmony! For harmony is as precious as the fragrant anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and unto the border of his robe. Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountain of Zion. And the Lord pronounces His blessings, even life forevermore.” (Ps. 133 NLT)

What a challenging declaration! These words remind us of the prayer of Jesus in John 17.
