Listen To Your Heart

Listen To Your Heart

Deuteronomy 30:11, 14 –  “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – God does not command anything that He does not put into our heart to be able to do. That is the reason that it is not too difficult or beyond our reach.

My Advice – Listen to your heart. God has put into it His desires. Follow those desires and you will always do what is right and just. Doing what is right and just will always be within your reach and will be easier than you think.

 

Timing & Patience & Faith – Oh My!

Timing & Patience & Faith – Oh My!

Numbers 11:23The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short?” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – We worry and fret. We whine and complain. How is God going to do this or take care of that? Do we really think that God is incapable or too distant to make all things work for the good?

My Advice – Never underestimate God’s ability and willingness to see you through the most challenging and frustrating of times. Where you may see impossibility, God sees not just possibility but certainty. It is just a matter of timing, patience and faith. Trust God. He will never disappoint.

Honoring God

Honoring God

Leviticus 10:3“Among those who approach me I will show myself holy; in the sight of the people I will be honored.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – Even though we are sons and daughters and even though we have Jesus as an intercessor we should respect and honor God.

My Advice – Do not be so casual with God that you dishonor Him. Do not take Him for granted. While we can boldly approach His “throne of grace,” we should still be respectful and consider His holiness.
