2020 and Proverbs 16:9

This is a great post from SlimJim’s blog, The Domain For Truth.

“A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

The Domain for Truth

I think at this point everyone can agree that 2020 is a crazy year (and that’s saying much since there’s so many things people disagree on).

‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God’ Sung By Christians All Around the World!

It’s always an encouragement to see Christians mixing their voices together to sing praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Please enjoy this amazing rendition of the beloved hymn by Martin Luther, A Mighty Fortress, sung by a virtual choir consisting of participants all around the globe.

“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.” (Psalm 18:2)

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)

The lyrics:

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and pow’r are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing,
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us;
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly pow’rs, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth;
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.

It is Well With My Soul (Pan Flute)

(The lyrics can be found if you click on the “CC” button or if you scroll down to the bottom of this page.)

~ David Döring – It is Well With My Soul ~

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:23

The Lyrics

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Is It a Sin to Fear COVID-19? – John MacArthur

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.’ [3] Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. [4] He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. [5] Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; [6] Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.” (Psalm 91:1-6)

A Happy Life

5e70f2b8227341771be2b3b9_o_U_v2Why is this happening? Why does this virus seem to not want to go away? There have been too many people that have been infected and have passed away from this virus. At this time in life don’t nothing matter but coming together and praying to Jesus. Jesus at this moment is the only help us. We can not fear this virus for the Lord is with us at all times. I want to give my prayers out there to those who have caught the virus and those who have lost people. And I want to pray for everyone in this world. 

The way that this virus is spreading I don’t know why they haven’t put everyone on 24-hour lockdown and close these stores. The longer they keep everything open the more the virus. It has been too many deaths in 24 hours. I hope that the government makes the…
