Just Because #7

“He that dwelleth (‘yashab’–to sit down, remain)
in the secret place of the most High
shall abide (‘stable and fixed’)  
under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Psalm 91:1
When God brings a challenge and a trial,
it always produces a deep work 
of his healing and love.
I processed the work with watercolors and God gave me this picture.
It’s been my meditation all week.

New, Amazing Things

“Then you will know which way to go,
since you have never been this way before.
But keep a distance of
about a thousand yards
between you and the ark;
do not go near it,” Joshua told the people.
“Consecrate yourselves,
for tomorrow the LORD
will do amazing things among you.”
Joshua 3:4,5
walking on a new path this season? I am.
Wanting to remember to
stay close to God’s presence and let Him lead–
He is going to do amazing new things.

Just Because #4

I began these Scripture posts as an outflow of my time in the Word throughout the week.  It could be from a message at church, a passage in our Women’s Bible Study, something I’ve been studying through the year or some verses I’m camping out in to commit to memory. (Ephesians Chapter 1–I’ve been there all year 🙂
The main reason, tho’ is to remind myself and you, my readers to remember and refresh–we are lost without the compass of God’s Word showing us the right direction to go, encouraging us along the way that God’s love never fails.
And why did God so love the world?

Just Because.

19 Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them].
So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.” 
Revelation 3:19,20 Amplified
We were visiting my son’s church a few weekends ago and heard their young, anointed Pastor Daniel preaching a series from Revelation about John’s letters to the churches.
For many years, this ‘behold I stand at the door and knock’ Scripture
has been used for a salvation verse.
But it is not–it’s written to Believers–me and you. I want to get better at listening for that knock.
Don’t you?
