Today’s Featured Scripture: 19 Psalm 7-11
7. The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 8. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. 9. Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. 10. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. 11. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.
Good morning WBFWE Family! Happy blessed Monday. I do pray that all is well with you and that you’ve enjoyed your Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Thank you for stopping by. I pray that you enjoy the posting. Until next time know that you are blessed to be a blessing… no weapons formed… no words formed… no medical diagnosis formed… no enemies formed… shall prosper… greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world… and when the People of This World think they are smarter than The Creator of This World, His word tells us He will make the wise the simple. So let’s be childlike, humble, be willing to learn, be willing to learn from our mistakes, love our neighbor as ourself, and love The LORD our GOD with all our heart, all our soul, and with all our mind. Remember to trust the LORD with all your heart and not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Go in peace and walk in victory!
GOD’s Word is awesome to say the least. His Word is for all to partake, but the right relationship is required to activate, benefit, unlock, and reap what His Word says. We know when we are being a casual Christian. We know when we are being a Holier Than Thou Christian. We know when we are not being a Christian at all. And with being all the aforementioned type Christians we can be, if our relationship isn’t on par… if our relationship is one-sided (in our favor)… if our relationship is only when we are in trouble or have a need… if our relationship is only on Sundays… if our relationship is only about us talking and The Father listening… then we are not going to activate, benefit, unlock, or reap what His Word says. The Word tells us that God gives sunlight to both the evil and the good and he sends rain on the just and unjust alike. But if we want to take things to the next level with the Father then a consistent, obedient, real, honest, loving, strong relationship is required.
When we know in our hearts that we have a consistent, obedient, real, honest, loving, strong (notice I didn’t say perfect) relationship with Our Creator we can then Walk By Faith With Expectations. Expectations that God Can and that God Will. Expectations that His Word Can come forth and that His Word Will come forth. With the right kind of relationship with the Father we will believe that His instructions are perfect and soul reviving. We will believe what God says and trust that He is smarter than any man/woman/expert prediction etc. With the right relationship we will rest in the commandments of the Lord thus letting Him be our joy despite our situation and then receiving that peace that surpasses all understanding. With the right relationship we will respect the LORD and His Word and that respect will become a way of life. With the right relationship we will trust God’s decision and know it is for the best though it may not feel good at all. Our Creator is a spirit God so in dealing with Him we have to be and stay spiritual and not in our flesh and emotions. Crucifying the flesh never feels good and it will hurt. When we stay in our feelings and flesh, though the decision/action Yahweh makes/takes is spiritual, we have to be careful not to question God. With the right relationship when we are going through things we should be searching and desiring God’s Word, for His Word is truly sweeter than honey dripping from the honeycomb and more desirable than gold or any precious stone. With the right relationship we will honor His Word and His warnings and He will reward us by protecting us and keeping us from hurt, harm, danger, and the enemy.
God Almighty is a loving, patient, merciful, caring God, but He is NO fool. He is not to be taking for granted or be flipped on and off like a light switch. He wants ALL human-kind to have life and live that life more abundantly and to its fullest. He wants to give ALL that is His (which is errr thang) to everyone. But just as we can’t walk in a store and take/receive without paying for it… we can’t take/receive from Him and not pay for it. A right relationship with Him is HOW you pay Him. Pay the cost… it’s worth it… HE’S WORTH IT!!!
