“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psa 23:4)
Hey Gang: Did you know “…man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Mat. 4:4). Does that mean that, if we seek His Word He will reveal it to me personally? You beat your sweet bippy that is what it means! Peter put it this way “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious” (I Peter 2:2).
Wow, that is pure milk to the soul. Stop for minute, before the day begins to fill you brain with the mundane things of the world and write these words down on a card or the palm of your hand: “Your Word, my Lord is like milk and honey to my soul”.
I pray you will hear the words of a battled scared old dude who has been around the mountain a few times when I say – I can measure the peaks and valleys of my life by the times I let God take control of my life and the times when I said, “Okay God, I can take it from here.”
Isaiah nailed it down in Chapter 53:6 when he wrote: “All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way”. Now turn up your dome of intellect a notch before reading the final phrase of this verse, “For the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him”.
Wow, can you beat that! He carried every sin, every iniquity, and every transgression to the cross on his back. I have heard many say they wish they could wash away the mistakes they made in their past. If that is you, wish no more, for the price has been paid in full. That is what the cross is all about – forgiveness and being washed as white as snow. Neat – heh!
So good folks, be advised that when you run into a clinker in the road today, or tomorrow, or perhaps you will luck out and make it to next week – but this I know, Satan has his dart machine loaded and will watch your every step and every thought and fire when he knows you have left your armor in the closet. But know this also, God has provided a hedge of protection to protect His children from the evil on’.s attacks! – His Word. His Name. His Armor and His Presence.
