TITLE: ACT UPON MY WORD IN BLIND AND CLINGING FAITH
MONDAY, AUGUST 9th 2021
TEXT: Luke 5:4-6 KJV
4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
Key verse: John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Sometimes, the circumstances of life and My word seem so hard to reconcile. To many, My counsels seem only an idea, shattered by the realities of living. Yet, when My word is acted upon (often in blind, clinging faith), it proves itself exactly what is needed in a person’s life. It is the word of truth. In My word is found all the qualities of My Godhead. It is here that you are in contact with My love, My wisdom and My power. My followers must always cherish My word, rest in it, bathe in it! It goes to the heart of every situation. It will unfailingly uplift and bring steadiness in the midst of doubts, misgivings and failure.
Habakkuk 2:1-4 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Never let any fear or compulsion make you give way to impatience. If you seek My will, I will show you very clearly when a matter is urgent. Only something blessed by Me is truly effective. That is why so many things in which you show patience prove worthwhile — because I complete them. Matters carried out with haste may not be according to My wish — and your impatient effort could then so easily have been wasted. Many things are desirable, but only some have to be carried out immediately. By your patience, give Me room to work — and let Me be seen at work. Know that I will never fail to act as you make the conditions, which are an obedient, quiet, and ordered life.
Thought for the day: The word of God is the compass of life.
Song for the day: Shepherd of my soul, I give you full control….
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 85-87; Romans 9
