    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?'

Your Purpose And Mine

  • They were all astonished at the majesty of God. But while all were marveling at all the things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples, 'Let these words sink into your ears, for the Son of Man will be delivered up into the hands of men.' But they didn't understand this saying. It was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it Luke 9:43 WEB

    Jesus told His disciples, 'Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men', but they did not understand it. Even though this was a very clear statement, they were convinced that Jesus was going to be the next king and that He would deliver Israel from the Roman occupiers.

    HIs disciples were filled with wonder because of the miracles that He was doing, and they were completely blind to what was soon coming on them. They were sincere, but sincerely wrong. Instead of becoming a king on earth, Jesus was handed over to the Romans and crucified, but resurrected Himself on the third day. The disciples did not understand how or why, but it worked out anyway.

    I had so many questions when I really began seeking the Lord and studying the Bible in depth. I was confused about so many things, the rapture, pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, post-tribulation, the millennium. My wall was covered with charts and timelines as I tried to work it all out. I concentrated most of my Bible study in Revelation, Daniel and Matthew 24. My room was beginning to look like a scene from 'A Beautiful Mind.'

    One Sunday morning, the Lord spoke to me through a visiting speaker from Texas that I had never met. I knew that it was God speaking through him for he had deep insight into my life. I could feel the presence of the Lord and I was burning and tingling all over. He called me up in front of the church and told me a lot of things, part of it was this:

    'Son, you don't need all of the things to fit, Just allow your purpose and Mine to knit. And don't be so concerned about the end of the book, go back to the beginning and take another look.'

    It changed my outlook, my focus, and my life became much more simple. Now I tend to my daily tasks and I let Him worry about the things that are beyond my control. I don't have to understand everything or have all of the answers. He does. I am just His servant and I try and follow His orders for today.

    Know today that you do not need to worry about how all of this fits together or how it is going to work out. You do not have to understand it all. Just let your purpose align with God today and let Him take care of the details. He has a better view up there than we do, and if it matters, He will tell you. We have a job to do while we are here, so let us focus on that.

    Prayer: Father, I turn my worries over to You for they are too much for me. There are so many things that are beyond my control. Please step into my life and help me bring things into balance. Help me complete my simple tasks today and to let the rest go, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! We don't have to know why? how? when? If? We only need to live in the moment. Life can be a great adventure if we leave it all in our Abba Father's hands and just do what we are able to do for the present. Only He knows what lies ahead for us. If we trust in Him and put Him first in our lives we will fullfill His plan for us. He will keep us on the right path.

This was for me today! We are planing a vacation, and nothing seems to be working out as I thought it would. I need to just put this in Gods hands and trust Him for what He wants us to do, He always knows what is best for us. HE sees the full picture that we don't see, and says to wait on Him.

This is good advise, if there is someone who seems to have this all figured out, I am very leary of them. The Apostle Paul said the ministry is a mystry in so many ways. I have found out through years of tring, figuring the end out is just too hard for me. Besides all that, I have found that when God wants me to know the next step, He will make sure I know. God sees all from where He is seated, we seem to see so little!
