TEXT: PROVERB 3: 5-8
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Key verse: Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Teach me the way I should go (Psalm 143:8) When a decision needs to be made, I so often give to My children, as they earnestly look to Me, an unmistakable awareness, which should be followed. At other times they are able simply to take the "commonsense" way — but being careful to stay close to Me. If you are, with sincerity, seeking only what is My will, I shall in My love overrule anything which would be wrong for you. Therefore, do not worry about the consequences of life's decisions. Sometimes you will feel regret at the way a matter turns out — but let that regret be short-lived . . . You can, in Me, start immediately to build something from the place where the apparent "mistake" (in worldly terms) left you.
Romans 8:38-39 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
My child, I know that in your heart is that longing to know Me more and more perfectly. I honour that longing, and that is why you are assured of My patience in all your failures. It is, of course, My grace which helps you to maintain that longing — and to come increasingly into oneness with Myself. Remember that an apparent standing-still in the eyes of the world often hides a very real advance in your spiritual life. Self grows less simply by that conscious daily contact with Me. As you rely on Me, miracles are happening in you. Although the miracle- working is often gradual, the time is of My ordaining and is never wasted.
Thought for the day: If God is by your side, you cannot miss your way.
Song for the day: Let the Lord have His way, put your hand in His hand …
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 82-84; Romans 8:19-39
