Text: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. (Luke 22:31-32)

Tweet: Whenever you find yourself in Satan’s sifting hand, remember your Savior is praying for you at Sovereignty’s right hand.

Text: Moreover the Lord spake again unto Ahaz, saying, Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord. And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? (Isaiah 7:10-13)

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. (Psalm 18:28)

Tweet: In life’s darkest hours, even the children of light need light. They can count on Christ, their Lamplighter, to provide it for them. The lamp He ignites with divine fire will not only dispel the darkness, but will also prove to be indistinguishable. It can’t be blown out by the winds of false doctrine, doused by the devil, nor even stamped out by the fast approaching Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
In Biblical times, it was the prevailing custom to burn lamps throughout the night. The poor would even forego the buying of bread to buy oil for their lamps, preferring to suffer hunger over sitting in darkness. Are you willing to give up earthly comforts in order to have Heavenly light?

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? (Romans 2:19-22)

Tweet: Many self-proclaimed preachers fail to practice what they preach. They prosecute others for the very things they perpetrate themselves. Far from being innocent of their own indictments, they are guilty themselves of the very things they accuse others of being guilty of.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. (Isaiah 62:6-7)

Tweet: Our prayers are God’s reminders of His promises. Therefore, we are not to faint in our prayers until God’s promises are fulfilled in our world and lives.

Text: My being safe and my honor rest with God. My safe place is in God, the rock of my strength. ( Psalm 62:7 NLV)

Tweet: The Lord is not only our Savior, by whom we are saved, but also our salvation, in whom we are safe.
