I am praying about changing the blog that I have been doing the past several years, and focus differently on the blog. I would then just email or text my OHA. Those who read this please pray with me on this as I only want to do as the Lord says about this.
The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. Psalm119:130
2 Samuel 23
In David’s last words it shows that he trusted God and believed that whatever God said would be. I also see that not only was David a great King and military man but he had a very strong creative side in his song writing and instrument playing. I do think that because God is Creator and we are made in His image that He gives us all an ability to be creative. I know that when I am doing art (I never even tried before 2007 and didn’t think I could) that I am relaxed and it is restful and even worshipful.
Leadership will be acknowledged by God.
Our Lord’s desire is that those who do evil would relent and return to Him. People who don’t want to hear truth want to destroy those who speak it. If its not time to die the Lord won’t allow it. We often say and think people die too young, etc. but God know why. He knows the beginning from the end (Isaiah 46:10), so who are we to say this or that about when a person leaves this earth. I have been guilty of this many times and need to stop justifying just because I don’t get it.
1 John 3
By the wonderful love of God, He calls us His children and therefore we are! Sin cannot be a lifestyle for those truly in Him. Lord Yeshua has destroyed the works of the devil which is another reason we don’t need to live sinful lives. Once again, we are reminded that not loving others means we are not right with God.
3 And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24 Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
Meditate & Apply: As recorded in John 14:6 the Lord says, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Though people want truth changed it really is only found in the Lord. I don’t like all the revisionist history, even taking down flags, etc. from the Civil War because it is a good reminder to not go there again! If we don’t learn from truth, we repeat the same errors. A truth I am meditating on today is that God knows all and who I am to say anything differently or try and justify a circumstance so I think I have understanding. Again, bottom line in everything is simple, just trust God.
Yes, letting God love others through us causes us to grow in so many areas, and it's hard to be self-centered when we are doing that. Thank God He knows us all individually and what each of us will receive!
I agree...God created us and I also believe everybody is creative, we may not see it, but itâs there...
Praying with you for God's clear direction!
