BE READY FOR THE UNEXPECTED!

Be ready for the unexpected!! And that unexpected for me this morning was receiving a call on the way to church from my Pastor (who was sick) asking for me to preach in both Services!

Pastor David, we prayed for you and I will continue to pray until you are well!! Rest and be strengthened in Jesus’ mighty name!!

Today, the Lord had me walk out the last Scripture I posted:

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Well, if God’s Spirit dwells within me, then what have I to fear? The Holy Spirit guides me and empowers me to speak what His people (including me) need to hear.

I am thankful and humbled to be a vessel of Almighty God!!! I am thankful and humbled to be able to fill in for my pastor when he is sick and needs time to heal! I am thankful and humbled to partner with God whenever He calls and wherever He calls!!

I would say to YOU, dear Brothers & Sisters….BE READY FOR THE UNEXPECTED!!

And the way to be ready is to draw near to the Lord and to stay near. He is preparing you for what’s ahead. Are you ready?

All glory and honor to the King of kings and the Lord of lords!!!!

Oh God, I love…

Oh God! I love Your commandments; I love Your guidance and Your wisdom and Your love and Your faithfulness!

Your words are a light upon the path before me. Darkness may be all around me…but Your light cuts through the darkness!

I love Your name and I desire for it to be continually on my lips and in my heart. May Your name be my strong tower that no forces can penetrate!

❤️I love You, LORD!❤️

OUR PATH GUIDE

deer 5

The Sovereign LORD is my strength;  He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to tread on the heights.  ~Habakkuk 3:19

I am so thankful that the Lord is my strength!  I must not rely on others to strengthen me…I must not rely on good books to strengthen me…I must not rely on anything that is physical to give me the strength I need.  Physical things are temporary; people can let you down….BUT GOD!!  He will never let us down.  He is always there to refill us time and again with His strength!  Our strength will fail, but His strength will never fail.  His strength is always there for us. Thank You, Lord!!

He has made our feet like “the feet of a deer.”  As the deer’s feet are made to grip and be able to stand firm and move confidently on the unlevel and upward path of the mountains…so our feet are made to stand firm and move confidently upon the upward path that the Lord has called us to.

God makes us walk on our “high places.”  What high places has He called you to walk upon?  The path may seem too challenging.  The top may seem too high, too far away. But, the Lord is our Path Guide.  He will place out feet upon ground we can trust to hold us.  For He is our ground!

*I have a vision of mountain climbers. You know how someone who is inexperienced is hooked by a guide rope to the experienced climber. He goes ahead and leads the others to where they should follow.  As long as he is hooked and connected to the guide…he will know exactly where to step.*

 
Ahhhh Lord! Thank You for leading us. Thank You for attaching yourself to us. It is never Your desire for us to wander from the path. May we never choose to unhook that guide rope! We are lost without You!
