June 24nd “The Plans of Mice And Men”

“Broken Dreams Broken Vows”

“Life’s curse of toils and struggles are seen in every human being. People are always looking for the easier way, or the ways they think are right. People say one thing and do another. People look at other people think in their hearts and often say unacceptable things. In Ezekiel 14:2 God says. “These men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces.” Truth is God knows our hearts, our thoughts, and our actions. Nothing is hidden from Him.

So often we don’t do the right thing or make the right choices. We operate on our feelings or our own self importance, what’s in it for me. Our pride gets in the way of seeing things clearly and we can’t or won’t ask God what we should do or what choices we should make. Knowing that we might have to suffer or others may see us in an unfavorable light often drives us to the wrong path. This then complicates things and compromises our position with God as we become disobedient to His will and His authority. We sin and break our relationship with Him!

Our human relationships struggle because of this, as well as not fully understanding Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

We find ourselves on the doorsteps of new opportunities and new ventures which promise us new life, new security, happier times without any thought of how or why we are there. Soon, and very soon, after walking through the door we find that what we really have is more than we ever dreamed or expected in the way we had envisioned it. Welcome to your new life.

There is faith. There is hope. There is love. The greatest of these is LOVE!”

“No guilt, no manipulation or complication you may think you know
No clear understanding of His will and the testimony that was to show
No thoughts of His glory or the promises you broke along the way
Living in the moment, driven by feelings, money the answer for each day
But, keep clear contemplation let it permeate your very mind and heart
John 15:6 will come with truth and play out its woe some part!”

“Remember who’s you are and for what purpose you were created. Isaiah 43:1; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 Peter 4:2 Have a great week!”

you, Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are

and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came
and through whom we live.”
