10/15/18 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

Isaiah 43:2
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up, the flames will not consume you.

He is with us in times of plenty and times of famine – and the good times and bad. When the deep waters of our problems or trials cause us to believe that we are drowning He will hold us above them. Flames of oppression will not singe or burn us. He will blanket us with His love!! Precious Abba my beloved Lord. Where can we go that You have not already been? You are omnipresent and are with us wherever we go!! You go before us to smooth our way. For You are the Way and the Truth and the Life!! I worship You!!!!

10/13/18 . . . . . . . act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

It never ceases to amaze me that every time I read God’s precious and holy Word – it speaks something else into my life. I had originally shared this verse a while back and thanked God for speaking to the prophets of old. Today I am thanking and praising Him for showing me that walking humbly with your God – only happened when I walked closely and surrendered my all to Him. In other words walking humbly with Him didn’t happen until I walked humbly with Him. And walking humbly didn’t happen until I moved me aside and let Him guide my life and until I surrendered and gave my all to Him. And I know that as soon as I say I am humble – well bragging and being prideful is not being humble at all. So I very carefully say that I walk in obedience with Him, I love showing His mercy and grace to a world so hungry for it. Precious Abba – loving Father!!! Thank You for showing me more and more of Your truths every day. As I spend time in Your Word – You reveal things to me – show me things I have missed and impart to me more of Your precious and unconditional love. For You are Love itself!!!

Micah 6:8
What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

10/12/18 “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.” ​​

We have a Bible at home that has 200 Bible stories in it. This is one of them where God uses someone who we might think could never do something to do great things. The humble beginning of Moses, a man that God used despite the circumstances surrounding his birth, and his limitations with speech. Moses was not an eloquent speaker but God used him to help convince Pharaoh to release the Israelites from their lives of slavery. And how many times do we say no to God because of our limitations when He asks us to do something, “God, I don’t have the time” or “God, I couldn’t possibly do that”. When God calls us He will equip us too. Take a leap of faith and follow those who went before us. Praising You, oh Lord!

Exodus 2:1-6
And a man of the house of Levi went and took as wife a daughter of Levi. So the woman conceived and bore a son. And when she saw that he was a beautiful child, she hid him three months. But when she could no longer hide him, she took an ark of bulrushes for him, daubed it with asphalt and pitch, put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river’s bank. And his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to him. Then the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river. And her maidens walked along the riverside; and when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her maid to get it. And when she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
