Good Morning~~~Have A Wonderful Day~~~God’s Will; The Heavenly Father is Watching Over Us, The Saviour is Guiding Our Steps: We have the Heavenly, loving Father watching over us and designing, guiding all things. He knows what we need and what needs to be done far better than any of us could ever come close to understanding. We have Jesus our Precious Saviour guiding our footsteps through each and everyday. We have the Holy Spirit within us, dealing with our thoughts and inner life.
The Lord has a individual plan for each one of us. God doesn't deal with people in groups of people “these first 5people will do this, the next 100 will have this, the next 500 will take care of this.” The Lord personalizes each of our lives. He knows our name we are not a number, and he knows what design best fits us. The very hairs of our head are numbered. And it's just as true for the Plumber as the Preacher. It is true for the Deacon just as for the stay at home Mom. It's as true for the Secretary as the Missionary. The Lord has a plan for every life. I can also guarantee there is not anyone that he has designed “to sit home and do nothing” he wants us all to be serving, and glorifying him, reaching the lost, edifying the brethren. Lots to be done, Prayer, Outreach, Encouragement, Evangelizing, Prayer, Taking Care of The Building He has Blessed Us With, Prayer.
What do we need to do to know, and accomplish our privilege of serving the Lord? First things first, you must express full dependence on Him. You must truly understand who we are trusting in; we are trusting in the Lord God Almighty, the creator, Our Heavenly Father, he who knows all things including the hairs (EACH ONE) on our head, knows when the baby bird falls from the nest, knows when we are hurting before we even realize we are hurting. He who sent his only begotten son to come here to be beaten, suffer, be spit upon, and died spilling his Precious blood, and carrying ALL OUR SIN into the pits of hell. Realize you are not following a television Super Hero, not a bedtime story character, but the Lord God himself who is very real. You can't trust someone you don't know. If you're having difficulty trusting the Lord, I'll tell you why. You have not learned to know Him and to love Him.
Our Lesson: To know Him is to love Him. To love Him is to trust Him. To trust Him is to obey Him. To obey Him is to be blessed.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
Proverbs 3:8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
Proverbs 14:11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 14:13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.
Proverbs 14:14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.
Proverbs 14:15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
Proverbs 14:16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
Jeremiah 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
Jeremiah 10:24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.
Proverbs 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
Proverbs 2:2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
Proverbs 2:3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
Proverbs 2:4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
Proverbs 2:5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
Proverbs 2:8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
Proverbs 2:9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
Proverbs 2:10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Proverbs 2:11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
Proverbs 2:12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Proverbs 2:13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
Proverbs 2:14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the forwardness;
IN THE GARDEN
I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses,
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him,
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
O FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD
O for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!
Where is the blessedness I knew,
When first I saw the Lord?
Where is the soul refreshing view
Of Jesus and His Word?
What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void
The world can never fill.
Return, O holy Dove, return,
Sweet messenger of rest!
I hate the sins that made Thee mourn
And drove Thee from my breast.
The dearest idol I have known,
Whate’er that idol be
Help me to tear it from Thy throne,
And worship only Thee.
So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.
