Guide Me…

Good morning, Beautiful Ones:

How blessed are we to be able to wake up and talk to God? How even more blessed are we that God is waiting to hear from us?

Only God knows the reason we were created. This morning we wake up and acknowledge that we are limited in our knowledge. God is our source of all. In the Old Testament, God led the children of Israel to the promised land. Throughout their journey, God was their Source of nourishment, both spiritually and naturally.

He was the source of water and food. Water is life. There is a reason why we call God the Living Water.  Who ever would have thought that water could come from a rock…BUT GOD!!!

Numbers 20:7-11

New International Version

The Lord said to Moses, “Take the staff,(A) and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water.(B) You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink.”

So Moses took the staff(C) from the Lord’s presence,(D) just as he commanded him. 10 He and Aaron gathered the assembly together(E) in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?”(F) 11 Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water(G) gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank.

Who ever would have thought that God would literally allow food, or manna, to fall from the sky…BUT GOD!!! There is a reason God is called the Bread of Life.

Exodus 16:9-12

New King James Version

Then Moses spoke to Aaron, “Say to all the congregation of the children of Israel, ‘Come near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints.’ ” 10 Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud.

11 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, ‘At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. And you shall know that I am the Lord your God.’ ”

We can follow God knowing that everything is already taken care of. Don’t worry about what you are going to eat, drink, or wear, just focus on the voice of God.

Be blessed family. Growing up, whenever I would be leaving my mother’s house, she would walk me to the door and say, “Take the Lord with you.” My mom was teaching me that there is nowhere I can’t go that God won’t be there. She was reminding me to put on my armor of God. So I say the same to you. Even though God is always wherever we are, be intentional in taking the Lord wherever you go. In Jesus name, Amen.

I’ll See You Again…

Good morning, Family:

A precious member of our church called me yesterday to check on me and to let me know about several church members that have passed on and transitioned to heaven. My husband and I sit in the section of the church with the senior members, because we love their wisdom, their worship, and their willingness to lead others in the right way.

When we do return to church and sit where we normally do, our hearts will break not seeing those lovely faces. Today, I honor them and tell them “Thank You” for all you shared while you were on this earth. You changed our lives. It was a joy to worship the King with you. I look forward to seeing you again.

Until we meet at Jesus feet,
