Heart, Words and God's Love
I hope that your week has been filled with God working for you and through you. He has sure answered my prayers and continues too, I just need to keep putting my faith in Him every day.
In this letter, I really want to stress how much God loves you and that you are the way He made you. He knew that you would be able to do the most for his kingdom just the way you are...of course you have to study and grow in Him in order to be wise and do your best for His glory.
But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.This scripture is in the context of God saying what He will do using Pharaoh in Egypt and showing His power through Moses as well. I believe that God uses average men and women and makes them more than ordinary through His Spirit. He equips them to be the best they can be along with the process of sanctification, so that they can serve Him to the best of their ability and have joy in it.
“I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You. We need to be echoing the same words of Job. We know that God has everything in control and that He works all things together for good, but do we actually live our life practicing that faith?
You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
“Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.
1 John 4:7-9
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
"If time could be old while ever young, then I am time.
If freedom is no guilt, no regrets,
knowing who you are, where you're going,
and what God expects of you,
then I am free...but not for the taking.
If beauty is awe-inspiring, orderly purposeful, magnetic,
effervescent, alive, joyful and mysterious;
then I want to be beautiful."
Hate evil, love good;
Establish justice in the gate.
It may be that the Lord God of hosts
Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:20-27
