Reasoning

Yesterday I wrote about trusting in the Lord with all our heart and not leaning on our own understanding from Proverbs 3:5.

 

I thought how God asks us in Isaiah 1:18 (KJV), to “Come, let us reason together,” saith the Lord, “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be white as wool.”

 

God encourages people to get to know Him. Proverbs is filled with references from Solomon to his sons to seek Wisdom – one of God’s attributes.

 

In Proverbs 16:16, (KJV) it says, “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!”

 

In Matthew 6:33, (KJV), Jesus says: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

 

He’s telling His followers not to worry about food and clothing. God will provide. Jesus also told believers in Luke 6:38, (KJV),  “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

 

That’s why believers have a faith walk. God’s directions contradict the world’s directions. When I’ve tested God’s Word, it’s been true.

 

My newborn son many years ago contracted Echo Virus, which destroyed 90 % of his liver. The infection specialist at a major university hospital told us the virus could move and destroy his heart or other major organs.

 

My husband and I didn’t break down crying or behave like we were in the middle of a crisis. She said, “Do you hear what I’m telling you?”

 

We assured her that we heard her clearly. We told her we were praying for our son and trusting in God. She shook her head and walked away.

 

It took thirty days before God healed our son and our faith and our emotions hit highs and lows. When my faith climbed the summit, his faith might be at rock bottom, and vice-versa.

 

Even our nine year old daughter prayed when I couldn’t believe for an IV to be removed from the baby’s scalp. The Lord answered her prayer!

 

Reading in Psalm 34:8, (KJV), I found, “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

 

It’s our choice.

 

God bless.

  1. What beautiful encouragement to all. Thank you and thank our blessed Lord God Father and Savior for his faithfulness and compassion. I too remember many incidents where I cried out to our Lord God for help and he answered. One day I cried all the way to work for financial help. My husband was out of work and all were depending on me for income. I was desperate for God’s help and begged him to relieve that gut wrenching sensation of pressure. I knew we didn’t have enough to pay bills and we were getting further behind. I cried out, “Lord, Lord, Help me! Help delayed makes the heart sick and my heart is beyond sick.” I cried all the way in to work that morning and when I got there I received a call from my old boss from another job. He said, are you going to be free this morning and I answered yes. He was coming over to visit me. He came to my office and greeted me and said “Milly and I have been praying to the Lord and we want you to have this (he handed me an envelope with cash). I looked at him and cried and thanked him and thanked him for being faithful to God. I looked at the envelope after he left and it had $1,000 cash, which was more than enough to cover my bills that month and some left over. I could hear a smile from our Lord God and an answering thought from him. He was reminding me that HE owned it all and if we wanted to have someone walk up and give cash money or food or anything, it would be done. He gave me a very strong reminder that if we trust in Him and rely on Him, he will take care of all our needs. And the biggest thing he taught me that day, do not worry. He felt my tears so loud that day and my Lord God Father and Savior had such great compassion to answer quickly. He is so real and what he does for all of us each day is beyond understanding. But we are to take joy in all the days of our life, knowing who loves us and who is in control.
    Thanks again for sharing and may your burdens be light as you walk in the yoke of our Lord God and Savior.
