God Is Speaking

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.”   

Isaiah 30:21

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  Jesus in John 10:27

“She is yours to love.  Take her.” God told Joshua Zhong about adopting a Chinese girl, in Linda Droeger’s Bound by Love.

 

Writing

My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

Psalm 45:1

“‘Writing,’ he patiently tried to persuade his doubtful daughter, ‘is man’s highest calling. Words are the emotional food that feed the hungry heart and the soul.'” Page 44 in Linda Droeger’s Bound By Love.

Miracle Appointment

A friend walked up to me, “Are you going to call?” She said before she left the house, “the Lord told me to agree with you in prayer.” Because she obeyed God, I received the answer I was praying for.  Thank You, Jesus!

Corrie ten Boom says, “love and obedience” in Not I, But Christ.

“But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)

Jesus in John 21:17, “Do you love Me?”

Glory in This

“Don’t let the wise brag of their wisdom.
    Don’t let heroes brag of their exploits.
Don’t let the rich brag of their riches.
    If you brag, brag of this and this only:
That you understand and know Me.
    I’m God, and I act in loyal love.
I do what’s right and set things right and fair,
    and delight in those who do the same things.
These are my trademarks.”
    God’s Decree.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 The Message

(Bible Gateway)

Part of this was quoted at church the other week!

“Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”  Isaiah 55:5

“In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.” Psalm 62:7

 

Great Minds

“For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.”                                                                  1 Corinthians 2:16

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”           Psalm 32:8 (NIV)

Oh Lord, let us not soften our minds with drugs & alcohol, pacified with lies.  Give us Your truth, Peace, hope, space, and timing. Don’t let us dull our minds, cowering from life, but give us brave hearts, clear thinking, strong trust in You, Lord God.

  • You are “the Way,
  • the Truth,
  • the Life!” (John 14:6)

“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: 

‘I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go.’ “

Isaiah 48:17

“And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.”                                                                                    Daniel 1:20

God’s Eye View

Bird’s eye view:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting lift.”             John 3:16

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13

“No one’s more important than people.”  Julia Child

Father God, help us to love others as You love them. Lord, we foolishly diminish You, turn our backs on You, put ourselves higher than You, try to ignore You. And yet, there You are, loving us, ready to forgive us because of who You are …

Following the Lord Jesus

Thanks for the Photo by Ylanite Koppens on Pexels.com!

“A man’s steps are of the Lord; how then can a man understand his own way?” Proverbs 20:24.

Do you ever hear the Lord through other people? And not directly from Him? A ministry couple finally received all the many hints that they were to lead a church again. They were totally satisfied serving Him in other ways and believed that’s what God wanted of them.

“For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.”               Psalm 92:4
