You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
When you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you on the path you are suppose to take, He will equip and empower you to achieve His purposes in your life. Stay in communication with Him, enjoying His company and He will enable you to accomplish the important things in His Kingdom. For in His Presence is fullness of joy! SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”
Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
Are you watching your father? Is he working? Are you watching your heavenly Father? Is He working? We need to watch our heavenly Father through the reading of the Word and mimick His actions. The Holy Spirit will guide us IF we follow and obey Him.
The Lord’s Eternal Love
A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed and pours out his complaint before the Lord.
1Hear my prayer, O Lord,
And let my cry come to You.
2 Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble;
Incline Your ear to me;
In the day that I call, answer me speedily.
3 For my days are consumed like smoke,
And my bones are burned like a hearth.
4 My heart is stricken and withered like grass,
So that I forget to eat my bread.
12 But You, O Lord, shall endure forever,
And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.
15 So the nations shall fear the name of the Lord,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
Whether you cry out to God for 5 minutes or 5 hours He hears your cry. Are you in need of the Masters touch today? Cry out to Him! #NeedtheLord
The Lord Reveals His Omnipotence to Job
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
“Who is this who darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
To what were its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together,
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?
“Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb;
When I made the clouds its garment,
And thick darkness its swaddling band;
When I fixed My limit for it,
And set bars and doors;
When I said,
‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’
Are we proud like Job when he asked God why? Or are we humbled when we realize God's omnipotence. All that the Lord did in creation and still does today we should be humble and in awe of an almighty God. Is there anything we can do without the Lord? No we are nothing without Him. But with Him we are able to withstand the enemy, hear from Him, and obey His commands. We must stop being proud and recognize the power of God. We must submit to His ways and follow His path of righteousness.
8 Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;
Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For by me your days will be multiplied,
And years of life will be added to you.
Fear of the Lord is just the beginning of wisdom. Then the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. This will multiply your days and years of your life. We need to come to the Lord daily, in His Word, through prayer, and fellowship with other believers in Christ. The Lord is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End! #Wisdom #knowledge #Understanding #LongLife
My son, keep my words,
And treasure my commands within you.
Keep my commands and live,
And my law as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
And call understanding your nearest kin,
Keeping God's Word in our heart, on our lips, written down, spoken out loud, these are the treasures that keep us close to Him and in His presence. It ultimately keeps us alive in Him. He is the branch we are the vine. It gives us wisdom in all situations and understanding of His will for our lives. We ALL need to "keep His Words"! #KeepMyWords
16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
20 My son, keep your father’s command,
And do not forsake the law of your mother.
21 Bind them continually upon your heart;
Tie them around your neck.
If the Lord hates these "six things" and seven are an abomination to Him, MAYBE we should NOT to them. Instead we should keep His commands and do not forsake His law. This is wisdom for all! #Wisdom
4 He also taught me, and said to me:
“Let your heart retain my words;
Keep my commands, and live.
5 Get wisdom! Get understanding!
Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you;
Love her, and she will keep you.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
The Lord gives us more instruction which is good for our understanding. When we let our heart retain His words, we get understanding which gives wisdom. We must hear and recieve it will add years to our life and in walking it will keep us from stumbling. The reading of the Bible daily should be our desire to follow Christ's footsteps. #GetUnderstanding
The Value of Wisdom
2 My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
Once we ask for wisdom and recieve it, let us understand the value of it. Every word from the mouth of God comes knowlege and understanding. We must READ the Word, all of it from Genesus to Revelation. So reading from the Bibe every day this New Year will let you understand the value of it. I pray you will take time each day to gain knowledge and understanding from the Father and you may WALK in it!
20 So you may walk in the way of goodness,
And keep to the paths of righteousness.
21 For the upright will dwell in the land,
And the blameless will remain in it;
Instructions for the Conquest of Canaan
Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan, across fromJericho, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their molded images, and demolish all their high places; you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land and dwell in it, for I have given you the land to possess.
We must go back and read verses 1 through 37 of this chapter to see the journeys of the Israelites. Then compare with America's journey through many trials and struggles in the past. Now the Lord spoke to Moses instructions to conquer the land of Canaan. We can see how we must conquer the land of America in the spiritual realm. We MUST DRIVE ut all the evil spirits from before us and destroy the idols, lust of money and power, greed, any thing in our lives that keeps us from hearing and obeying he Lord in our lives. God gave us this land and we must possess it with our prayers of His Word for victory over the enemy. What scripture do you know and meditate on when you are in need of help? SPEAK it forth for the Lord's Words will go forth and change the atmosphere in your home, work place, and our nation. #SpeakGodsWord #InstructionsforAmerica #VictoryinJesus
