Peace Thru Meditating On Scripture

By Louie Marsh 6-3-2020

 

How To Meditate On God’s Word

 

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.  He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.

Whatever he does prospers.  Psalm 1:2-3

 

Meditation is THINKING / PONDERING about a Bible verse(s) in order to discover how ...

    12  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 (ESV)

     

    People, other people that is, are the least of our problems most of the time.  Paul focuses here on spiritual struggling but there...

    The Power of Perspective

    By Louie Marsh, 4-22-2020

     

    How we view, look at, understand and respond to everything depends entirely upon what our perspective of it is. As disciples of Jesus what perspective should we have on life? Well if we want to see things the way Jesus saw things then we need a Biblical Perspective on life.

    Christian Confessions During A Crisis

    By Louie Marsh, 4-1-2020

     

    1) “I CONFESS I’M DISCOURAGED”

     

    Refocus on Jesus –

     

    1  Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2  looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that wa...

    The Most Terrible Psalm

    By Louie Marsh, 3-4-2020

     

     

    I’m reading from chapter 5 of my first book, Getting Real. This is the chapter on Psalm 22, a psalm that prophetically foretells the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus. It’s powerful and it’s terrible in how it shows us the agony that Jesus went through on the cross.

     

    I’ll be departing from the book’s text to make comments as I go through. Any comments I think are w...

    Hope Against Hope

    By Louie Marsh, 2-26-2020

     

    Recent events have caused this phrase to echo through my mind quite often lately.

     

    I hope against hope that a few meager words spoken on a Sunday morning will heal a marriage, mend a troubled mind or motivate someone to respond to the Word of God.

     

    I hope against hope that an hour’s counsel will help someone begin to overcome a life time of running and hiding from thei...

    Let Freedom Ring!

    By Louie Marsh, 2-19-2020

     

    1  For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 (ESV)

     

    It’s amazing to see how often a desire for freedom appears in history. You see it over and over again. Some times it’s a misunderstanding of what freedom is, but it’s there. From the recent Arab Spring (which certainly is not about freedom the ...

    Two Kinds of People

    By Louie Marsh, 2-5-2020

     

    I’ve read a lot of articles, jokes, etc that start with the line, “There are two kinds of people…” Today I’m adding my own ideas to this mix, whether it’s wanted, needed and helpful or not!

     

    Based on my 52 years of experience, I think that there are two kinds of people in the world, those who are introspective and those who aren’t.

     

    These two kinds of people aren’t ...

    Death with Dignity?

    By Louie Marsh, 1-29-2020

     

    Over the course of my ministry I’ve seen more than a few people die. I remember years ago watching a friend of mine pass and that’s when I first began to ponder the phrase, “Death with Dignity.” I want to make clear that the hospice workers were great! The place was clean, very nice and had everything someone whose terminal could need.
