God: can and will…
Psalm 91:4-5 (KJV) “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;”
There isn’t any doubt about the fact that ever so often, we feel lost and without a true sense of where we are going; our thoughts are under attack and it’s not quite clear where to turn even though we have been there before.
It takes a prod or push sometimes from our heavenly Father as He directs us toward Him and safely cover under His wing. It is a place of safety, where we can think, bask in comfort and recognize that safety and peace is surrounding us..
Thank God for His sincere presence, covering and place of abode.
God: will be the guide….
John 16:13 (KJV) “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
We sit and do a lot of wondering at times; getting to where we need to be in this life and the one to come. It is defined in the word of God, yet in those moments when we might feel a bit disconnected, it overshadow the mind that a poor sinner can make it to be with the God of truth when He comes to reign in this world.
But thank God for our heavenly Father, for He remembered us and knew that we would encounter such feelings and distractions and He knew that we would be barraged by the enemy of our souls.
He remembered and sent a comforter: the Spirit of truth. He will lead us in our times of tumult, heed Him.
God: speaks with a distinguished voice….
John 10:27-28 (KJV) “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
The order of process is defined and we hear some folks say God doesn’t speak to mankind anymore, but what Father makes a child and deliberately forsake that child forever (not talking about those who don’t know what fatherhood is about)? God is the creator.
As our Father we ought to recognize His voice, His direction and seek the Spirit of truth to be in unison with Him.
He called us; we recognized His voice and made the choice to follow His leading; through the passage of time, things might happen that might cause a disconnect, but let it not be for long.
The choice today is to hear the voice of God and keep on following the direction He set forth: the reward will be great after a while.
God: has a plan for even that….
1 Peter 5:7 (KJV) “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
The tricky thing about the wording in the Word is that we directions to do things that seem in practical, pretty difficult to accomplish; you read the instructions, pondering in your mind how in the world will this ever be done.
But the premise to keep in mind is that it isn’t by our might or strength, but by the guidance of the Spirit of God.
He is the one doing the job and we fall into compliance. So when we start to worry about finding our place in this walk; what to do and when to do it, the answer lies with seeking and hearing when He brings the answer.
It’s easy to be self dependent; but grace allows us to lean and depend on Jesus for He has already done the hard work.
God: thrives on forgiving…
Matthew 6:14-15 (KJV) “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
In the deep realm of things, social consciousness and all that, you get convicted to do the right thing and live good with all men. It gets to the point that forgiveness is identified as one of the benefits of creating healing from within.
It is believed that if you are able to thoroughly forgive others the sins and transgression they have made against you, then it is a release that will cleanse you. The key thing left out is that God requires us to forgive and move on; when we hold unto the wrong of others, we had better been living a clean and pure life because God won’t forgive us if we don’t do the same.
Maybe we are looking at someone who have wronged us in a despicable manner, but we might have done something to another unwittingly.
Key is forgiveness.
God: is truth…
John 14:2 (KJV) “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Standing on the word from a friend is a gift that many of us don’t have at any given time in our interact with folks; there are individuals we can call best friends and ultimately we can attest that we trust them to the uttermost: sometimes that trust fails.
However, as a believer we have a friend that is closer than a brother or sister and the outstanding thing about Him is that He tells the truth.
No guile; tells you as it is.
What a friend we have in Jesus: and He has told us that He is preparing a place to call our own. I believe.
God: gave us a clause…
Colossians 3:1-2(KJV) “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
As believers we can tend to declassify ourselves and this comes about when the doubts set in about who we are in Christ. We are redeemed and bought again with a price that cannot be attained ever in this world.
We devalue ourselves to the point where we return to the things that have no meaning to us and it creates an existence of pure limitation.
If we know our value in Christ and understand the price His death carries over our heads, then we can walk with power and understand that we are valuable: we have to understand the “if” factor. When we can attain the “if”, we got it all covered.
