Only Look Up

Child of God, never forget that when the elements of life and friends and family go against you right before a major change in your life, it’s confirmation of God’s pleasure and the enemy’s displeasure.

The angels are tall and sturdy surrounding you; only look up to see the mighty God Who guides you and them.

Be serious about your assignment, dear one, and don’t forget to be encouraged by the high waves and raging winds trying to buffet your vessel.  The Ship of Zion can’t be breached by the enemy’s folly, for it is steered by the immutable Captain of our Salvation! Hallelujah!

Have the elements of life and friends and family burst apart like a whirling firecracker stinging your eyes with smoke and sparks of disloyalty everywhere you go?  Step back, and lean on the Lord.  His coffers are full of calming waters that dowse the harsh coals and snuff the seething embers of betrayal and pain.

The angels of God are always around you, and they behold the face of He Who strengthens them and you. He will rescue, comfort, deliver, and heal.  Only look up.


Whew! Bless the Lord!

Holy Spirit holds open the “door of escape” from temptation to sin, and I am so grateful!

All it takes is our outcry to God, and He will transport us from the midst of fleshly weakness and into His glorious light.

Escaping the grip of temptation is like being thrust out into fresh, cool air after the stifling encroach of heat and blight.

Renew me, O, God! Refresh me with Your determination and Your strength which are far greater than all… for there is no strength without You.

With You, I can shut the door on temptation and take the hand of Righteousness.  With You, I know everything’s going to be all right.

And so… I bless the Lord.


Perfectly

The Lord just brings His will about when we trust Him; sometimes it’s very quietly.

We worry and fuss and pray and toss and turn at night asking God to keep us in His will and timing and not let us step in front of Him or drag behind Him.  We sweat and our temperatures rise… we humans are all so dramatic!

But God is not, and He has no sweat glands.

He just brings His will to pass and He honors our obedient hearts and rewards us with His favor… all so quietly.

But perfectly.  Absolutely, positively, perfectly.

God bless You, Savior!  FOR YOU DO ALL THINGS WELL!

Amen.
