Do It

“Whatever He says to you, do it,” says Mary in John 2:5, to the wedding servants.

Jesus says in John 14:14, “If you shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.”

“When you know you should do a thing, and do it, immediately you know more.” says Oswald Chambers in June 8th, My Utmost for His Highest.

1 Thessalonians 5:24, reads “Faithful is He that calls you, Who also will do it.”

Dear Lord, may our right action and obedience bring us ever increasingly to Your side, O God.


…But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:      And the rest, some on boards & some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.  Acts 27:43-44.

Lord, saved for Your purpose.


Walk in it

“And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the Lord in Shiloh,” Joshua 18:8.

“And this is love, that we walk after His commandments. This is the commandment, That, as you’ve heard from the beginning, you should walk in it,” 2 John 1:6.

Revelation 21:24, “And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.”

Upon waking, I looked outside, it was all misty, very early before the neighbors stirred.  You said, “walk in it.”  You meant now, not after my usual coffee & devotions.  A bit slowly, I pulled on some street clothes & went outside.  We took the high road together.  It was magical, quiet & warm, like a private space.  Some blocks up, a deer was eating from a bush in a yard, we met eyes.  Thank You for Your beauty & refreshing times, dear Lord.
