Walking With The Lord

Here is a Word of encouragement:

Psalm 30:11You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

I have been asking the Lord about the days ahead, and His response was:

1.  Remember-what He has done for me, the miracles, the answered prayers, the deliverance just like in Psalm 30 above

2.  Walk step by step, moment by moment with Him.  Trust, have faith, believe.

That's it.  Through each miracle the Lord has walked me through, He has taught me the same thing: walk with Him step by step, moment by moment.  We cannot walk with Him tomorrow until tomorrow arrives and yesterday is gone forever.  Now, today is the day we have to walk with our God.  Walk with Him, trust Him, stay in the Word to build your faith and watch what He will do.

grace and peace

This one will be short but I want to pass onto you a theme the Lord has placed in my heart: hope.  As the days become darker we need to keep the spark of hope alive in our hearts.  We do this in and through the Word.  This particular scripture really nails the concept down for us:

1 Cor 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

We must keep faith, hope and love alive.  Imagine with me for a moment just how far these three words could take us through this darkness if we all fully embraced them.  How far can faith take us?  All the way.  How far can hope take us?  All the way.  How far can love take us.....all the way.

Our supply and provision and anything else we need comes from the unseen world into this seen world through faith hope and love.  What am I talking about?  Manna in the desert for Israel during the exodus is an example.  The Lord provided a way that could not be anticipated, made no sense in the physical, was not rational or scientific etc.  The Lord loved His people, He provided for them, end of story.

If we are on this earth and we are His children, He will have to provide for us or we will not survive.  Do you think He knows this?  Of course He does.  Love, trust, hope, faith these things have been laid on this writer's heart to share with you.  We who believe have a hope that the world does not.  We have more than this, we have a blessed hope.  Please remember to keep faith, hope and love alive.  Focus on it, remember it morning noon and night.  The Lord wrote this 1 Cor 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and loveLets remember what our loving Father has written to us.

grace and peace
