Of No Reputation

Profound!

 

With all the “puffing up” everyone does to make themselves look important,

the one who is True, the one who is Life, and the one who is the way to the

Kingdom of God, that we are to follow and live our lives as he did,

surprisingly didn’t puff himself up.

 

He did not boast, he did not create the smartest resume, or attain the

highest college degree, or wear the latest fashion.  He did not try to impress

anyone, he did not have business cards to hand out. He didn’t sell anything.

 

He simply came in His Father’s name, spoke truth in love, healed others and

met their needs, and only asked that they believe in and obey Father God

and believe that he sent his Son to save them through the gift of his life.  

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”
Philippians 2:5-8

 

May we learn to be more like Him, humble, filled with love, while we serve

each other in the Father’s name, as we trust, obey, and believe each day.

 

Be wise and be blessed!

Closer Than Before

Are we are closer than before to the return of the Son of God?

I think we are.

When he was asked about his return, he had a lot to say.  Some of his words about his return can be found in the book of Matthew.  There are also many other verses in the bible that talk about his return too, especially the book of the Apocalypse also called Revelation.

Matthew 24:6-30

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.
And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.

Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.
And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.

But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  See, I have told you beforehand.

“Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.  For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

There is so much going on in this world that points to his soon return.  This generation is truly in a high watch time.  I encourage you to read and re-read the scriptures, especially about his return, as the time is now closer than before.

I hope you are waiting and watching with expectation.

Be blessed!

Happy Memorial Day

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day filled with joy!

I hope you are able to spend this day with Family and Friends and time to reflect on those who gave their lives for preservation of freedom and justice.

There are many families around the world hurting at this time following World Wide Flooding and the Hurricane that recently hit Texas, USA. More hurricanes and floods are expected.  Several locations around the world are also dealing with massive forest fires, mudslides, and earth quakes.  Please remember these people in your prayers and help where you are able.

Whatever you do to day, also remember Father God (Yahuah) our Creator, and his only begotten son (Yahusha) our savior.   Some call Father God’s name Yweh or Lord.  This was the name of Baal in biblical times.  Some call the Son of God’s name Yeshua, and most people today call him Jesus.  I grew up calling him Jesus and that is what I have known him by for 40+ years.  But I have now learned this is not his true name.  What others like myself may not know and will be surprised to learn is that many years ago (1628 A.D.), those in powerful positions changed his name to “Jesus” in the bible writings when they reprinted the bible scriptures to confuse people and call him by a pagan god’s name.  They are calling him son of Zeus, or Baal, who goes by many pagan names.  This truth was very upsetting to me when I learned this, to know this lie had been done and people have been deceived for the past 400+/- years.  Up to this time in history, his name was written as Yahuah and Yahusha and everyone who followed Father God knew this as the name of the Father and the Son.  The true name can still be seen in the earlier print additions of the bible. However, once the name was changed in the reprinted editions, the deception has remained ever since.

Father God signed his name, his true name signed with his own finger, in stone on the Ten Commandments so we would know the truth.  Father God’s name is Yahuah.  His son came in his Father’s Name Yahusha (Yahuah Saves).

Keep your light shining bright and stay ready for his return.  He told us in the gospels written in the bible to be watching and he told us what the world would look like when his return is near.  He gave us several things to watch for including the similarities between the days Noah, Lot, Daniel, and Jonah lived on the earth.  His message is woven throughout the scriptures, but we can see clearly the details we must watch for in the bible books of Genesis, Daniel, Isaaiah, Jude, Matthew, Luke, Thessalonians, and Revelation.  His return is now closer than ever.

If you don’t know him yet, pray to Father God to show you the truth about his son.  Call on him and he will answer you.  Seek and you will find. Repent of your sins, believe in his name because he has been given the power to overcome everything in heaven and earth.  He can deliver and save and he can also cast souls into hell for eternity.  Fear his name.  Call on him.  He came in his Father’s name and he will freely give eternal life to all who call on him, believe who he is, repent of sins, forgive those who have done you wrong, and obey his instructions.

His instructions are to love Father God with all your heart, love your neighbor as yourself, and keep the 10 rules his Father gave us to live by, and produce good fruit with your life.  He will give you the Holy Spirit to help you live by these rules and produce good fruit.

The 10 Rules the Father gave us consist of 2 things to “do” (YOU WILL) and 8 things to “not do” (SHALL NOT).   When we violate these basic rules, we go beyond the boundaries our Creator set for us, and we loose our peace that he freely gives to all who will come to him and obey.  Be sure to read more in my post on Perfect Peace.

  1. You shall not have other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols. Do not make any images of anything above the earth, in the earth, or below. Do not put your trust and affection in any man made thing.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
  4. You will keep the Sabbath day holy. 6 days you will labor and the 7th day is blessed and belongs to Father God. (The 7th day pattern begins each month at the first sighting of the moon. There are 4 -7th day Sabbath rests each month. The 7 day pattern cycles again for the next month at the first sighting of the moon. This is our Heavenly Father’s weekly and monthly calendar.)
  5. You will honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet. Do not desire your neighbor’s house. Do not desire your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant. Do not desire your neighbors ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that belongs to your neighbor.

Producing good fruit means that through love for Father God, and love for your fellow man, you reach out and help those in need by feeding the hungry, visit the orphan and widow, shelter the homeless, showing kindness to the stranger, heal the sick, visit those in prison, cast out demons from the oppressed, and set the captive free.

Yahusha said that when you do these things in love for the least of people (those who go unnoticed), that you have done it unto him and he will remember.  He also said others would know you are his follower by your love.  This is pure worship of Father God and what he truly desires from us. Pure worship is not religion, not politics, and not vain or pride.  He said he gave each of us “A Spirit of Love, Power, and Sound Mind“.  He also said “The Truth Will Set You Free“.  He will show you the way when you seek him first in your life above all else.

Perfect Peace

What is perfect peace?

With all the turmoil in the world today, I wanted to know more about finding perfect peace.

I think perfect peace is a state of contentment, calm, and total trust in Father God, no matter what turmoil is going on around us.

The opposite of peace is strife, fear, anger, covet, struggle, argue, fight, control over others, and war.

How do we reach and stay in a state a state of perfect peace?

The bible says the person who trusts in, and keeps their mind focused on, Father God will have perfect peace.

  “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”  Isaiah 26:3

What do you place your trust in?

Do you ONLY place your trust in Father God?

Or do you trust in other gods???

What is your mind focused on?

A god is anything you place your trust in, your hope in, your affection and focus attention in.

People tend to have many little gods they trust in and idols in their life:

Money, job, home, land, vehicle, education, investments, retirement, social media, NEWS, music, TV, movie stars, doctor, pharmacy, pastor, church, sports, hospital, police, military, government, politics, etc.

When we place our trust in these, to save our life or better our life, they become gods and idols in our life.

Father God gave us 10 rules to live by and he signed them with his own name, YAHUAH.

We call these 10 rules the 10 Commandments.  These are found in Exodus 20:2-17.  Father God wanted us to think about them all of the time, morning and night, and to tell them to our children where ever we may journey throughout our day too.

When we violate these rules, we go beyond the boundaries our Creator set for us, and we loose our peace that he freely gives to all who will come to him and obey.

  1. You shall not have other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols. Do not make any images of anything above the earth, in the earth, or below.  Do not put your trust and affection in any man made thing.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
  4. You will keep the Sabbath day holy. 6 days you will labor and the 7th day is blessed and belongs to Father God.  (The 7th day pattern begins each month at the first sighting of the moon.  There are 4 -7th day Sabbath rests each month. The 7 day pattern cycles again for the next month at the first sighting of the moon.  This is our Heavenly Father’s weekly and monthly calendar.)
  5. You will honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet.  Do not desire your neighbor’s house.  Do not desire your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant. Do not desire your neighbors ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that belongs to your neighbor.

In these rules he commanded, he gave us 8 things not to do, and 2 things we must do.  Folks find it hard to follow these 10 rules.

When we break one of these 10 rules, we have sin in our life.  Sin is wickedness.  Father God will not fellowship with us when we are walking in sin, because he is Holy and there is no sin in him.  He asks us to walk in a holy life because he is holy and he is our father in heaven.

Father God sent a part of himself to help us overcome the temptation and punishment of sin. He sent his only begotten son into the world to live as a man, and teach people about the kingdom of Father God, to show people how to live and obey these 10 commands, avoiding deception, loving and helping others, and defeating the temptations of the flesh and Satan.

He had perfect peace.  He said “my peace I give to you.”  He told the people that he came fulfill the law and covenant all the law of God and the prophets could be summed up in this:

  1. Love Father God with all your heart mind and soul.
  2. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Go about meeting their needs, forgive them, heal them.  When you take care of others and meet their needs with the power of the Holy Spirit of God in your life, you are honoring your father in heaven.  He said when you do this unto the least of these people, you are doing it unto me.

Then he chose to lay down his life as a perfect sacrifice for mankind to Father God so that everyone who believes in him, confessed their sins, and accepted him as Lord of their life, would not die in their sins, but would be forgiven by Father God be born again and have eternal life and eternal fellowship with him.

If you love him, you will trust in him only, repent of any sin, keep all of his commands, keep the 7th day Sabbath, and take care of others.  He will reward you on judgement day with eternal life because you believed in him, you trusted him as Lord God of your life, and you took care of the real needs of others and did not turn away.

That is our perfect hope! Our PERFECT PEACE is Yahuah (Father God our Creator) and through the gift of his son Yahusha (Yahuah Saves) we have eternal life, healing for our body, and perfect peace in every situation we face in this life.  Hallelujah!  Praise his holy name!

Be wise, be in perfect peace, and be blessed!

You Are The Temple

Why worship God in temples made by human hands?

As I have gotten older, and hopefully wiser, I have come to understand that the scriptures in the Bible point to the human body as the true temple of our Heavenly Father, not the church building or any other building.  We are instructed to care for his temple, our body, and care for others because they are also his temple.

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

That they (men of all nations in the earth) should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”  Acts 17: 24 – 25; 28-29

 

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

But he spake of the temple of his body.”   John 2:19-21

Buildings made by human hands might impress people, but they don’t impress God our Creator, our Heavenly Father.  Money donated (or taxed) to build buildings (or anything else) doesn’t impress him either.  He said a poor widow’s penny offered is more impressive than a rich man’s offering.  He also said it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

From the scriptures we can clearly see that HE wants an intimate daily walk with us and for us to recognize a special day each week that we acknowledge him, and do good to others in his name, that special day he calls the Sabbath.  The Sabbath means the 7th day when God our Creator rested from his work.  He has asked us to do the same and keep it special for him.

The day of the week the Sabbath is on changes each year and sometimes even during a certain month of the year.  How you find the day is to learn when the barley is ready for harvest in the spring and the correlation with the first sighting of the moon during that season.  This then begins the year, and the Sabbaths of that year are on the seventh day and every seventh day there after.  This pattern of seven days should follow a 28 day rotation, with the full moon falling on the second Sabbath of the month.  Every once in a while it will be on a 29 day rotation with an extra day added at the end if the next sliver of the moon wasn’t seen until the following night.  If the month had 29 days, then the next pattern of “first day” and “seventh day” will shift forward by one day and then continue forward on 28 days again with each month having 4 Sabbaths and then repeating.   Today in our modern society, few people keep the true Sabbath of Father God, but instead they set a certain day such as Sunday or Saturday or Friday as their day of worship when they go to temples made with human hands.

What blesses Father God is pure worship and love for him from our heart and caring for the needs of our fellow humans.

Check out these verses from Isaiah 58 about what pleases God the Father:

“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.

Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.

Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:

And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”   Isaiah 58

May we have the desire to draw near to HIM, our Heavenly Father, through faith and forgiveness found in his only begotten son Jesus who has shown us the truth and the way, and seek his face and learn his ways, and obey and be found faithful.

Be blessed!

Look Up

Thinking about the reunion.
It will be soon.
I hope you will be there.
When we meet the groom.

His dad sent the invitations.
I received mine and accepted.
I proclaimed my reservation to all who were receptive.

Some were willing to hear his message,
But not all appreciated the simple package.

Some laughed and said “about the return of Jesus you must be confused.
There are no miracles today, the prophets died long ago,
and the return of the groom is a long way away.
We would have heard it in our grand churches and in our pews.
Such an invitation would have come from the pastors with mega buildings,
fine words, and also those on TV who speak the news.”

Others hearts were too hard for the seed to penetrate.
Their hearts were filled with pride, bitterness, and hate.
Some laughed and said they’re busy and earning reputations and money
They would rather choose their own path rather than the path of one who willingly hung on a tree for you and me.

Many heard the news but most failed to make room.
Their calendars too full to pencil in the feast with the groom.
His Dad tried again, and again.
To remind them the appointed time of the wedding was soon.

Busy lives and reservations unanswered
But the Father’s love would not be hindered.
So he sent out more.  He even knocked on each door,
Before the end begins, He sent more messengers.
He is still calling and waiting for their answers.

It is just about time.
I am ready to go.  I can’t wait!
Be ready. Keep your lamps full and burning bright.
Look up. To this wedding we won’t be late!

Be Blessed Dear Friends.
Look up!  The time is drawing near for the return of Jesus for his bride.

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
“The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:1- 14

New Day

We got up early and before it was light we headed out to the edge.   

We marched forward in the darkness, walking from hard dirt to shifting sand until we could not go any farther.

We had to stop.  We were created with specific strengths and limits and we had to stop and recognize our habitat ends at this line.  Who set this boundary?  Who drew this line in the sand?

In the darkness one might miss the clarity of this line.  But if your ears are open, then it is unmistakable that even in the dark there was a change in our path.  The roar of the water is mighty.  It’s song drowns out the sound of the city and the night.  It deafens the sound of motors and all other man-made creations. Someone incredible put this line here and gave it a mighty sound so even in darkness it was unmistakable.

It clearly defines the boundary below our feet.  There are no more roads, no cars, no buildings, no houses, no people, not even trees, no…this line of roaring waters defines a boundary line.

The sky was beginning to shine forth with light separating the day from the night.  Standing in one place looking to the east we saw the new day and to the west we still saw the night.  We were standing at a boundary line between domains of powerful waters and land, but also between times, between day and night.

The reality of this moment is surreal and amazing!  It is encouraging and we waited patiently for the light.

It climbed slowly and steadily.

The waters kept roaring.  Their pace was rhythmic and never changing.

The rhythm seemed as if it were trying to lure me to sleep, back and forth, back and forth.

But all my senses were awake.  I could smell the energy in the air, I could agree with the rhythm with each breath I took.  I could feel the steady pace of life just like my own heart beating.  I could taste the salty air as it passed my tongue and as it filled my lungs it electrified and recharged my body.

There is life in this rhythm.  It churns up oxygen and minerals that bubbles and froths and is teaming with new life.

Even the birds were excited.  They instinctively know the ebb and flow of the water brings abundance into their life and they find nourishment.

It bears witness to the Creator.

The living God.  There is none like him.  He is the provider.  He is the daily bread of heaven.  He is the water of life.   All those who come to him will be saved and will never thirst for eternity.

We met many others on the journey to the water’s edge.  They come to enjoy the inspiring moments of a new day as it dawns.

The light transforms our view.  It bounces all around before the sun even appears over the horizon.

Everything takes on a new vibrancy. Colors seem to pop! Details previously unseen suddenly overwhelm the senses and there is a new awareness.

The birds are very excited.  The growing light points out the location of their next meal.  They dance in the air above the waves in anticipation, expecting provision.  They do not worry.  Then when there is just enough light, they quickly dive into the water and select their free gifts for the day.

I am dancing too.  On the edge.  On the line.  In the moment I become part of the the rhythm and I dance and wait.

My feet are wet.  My toes tingle.  My nose is full of sweet salty air that energizes my breaths and my beating heart.  My eyes are drawn to the dawning light and I wait.

My spirit is encouraged.

I wait. I know it will be here soon.

My Father in Heaven set this plan in motion.

I can rejoice and dance as carefree as a little child.

I feel alive.  I trust my Father’s plan and provision completely.  He drew this line.  He put this boundary here.  I trust him.

The waves rise and fall and rise again, washing the shore.  The rhythm is a song in my heart and mind.  It reminds me there is a plan, it is not random.

He sent his only begotten son to redeem me, heal me, and wash me clean. My robe is washed by the lamb, Jesus, my savior.  God sent his son to redeem all those who would believe and call upon him.

It is a new day, a day the Lord God has made.

Sing about his goodness, I will sing about his provision for my needs.  I will tell the world about his love and his mercy.  I will praise his name forever.

In him only will I place my trust.  His plan is perfect.  His plan is in motion.  I will trust him with my life and my eternal home.

I will rejoice and be glad.

Lead Me In The Way Everlasting

Do you ever have a restless night when it is hard to sleep?  What do you do during those times?  Do you worry about your day?  Do you worry about tomorrow?

When a lack of sleep happens to me, I try to spend those hours laying in bed praying and seeking the Lord instead of worrying.   There is a peace that takes over your heart and mind when you seek God and ask Him to lead.

A wise man wrote:  “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”   Psalm 139 : 23 – 24

Jesus said to pray like this: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”  Matthew 6 : 9 -12

Worry is the opposite of faith.  Worry is fear.  It is a lack of faith.  Faith comes from hearing the word of God and putting your hope and trust 100% in what God has said and seeing his word manifest in your life.  God is faithful and he will always take care of you.  He is the living water of life that never runs dry.  He will always answer your call to him and will always provide for you. He loves you and forgives you and delights in guiding and caring for you.

I just wanted to encourage you to ask God to lead you today and everyday in HIS way, because you can trust Him that his way is true and will last forever.

Be blessed!
