…he saw his glory and spoke about him. John 12:36b-43 Nearly two thousand years ago, everywhere the Apostle Paul traveled, his adversaries followed him (Acts 17). How tremendous a power and authority, when there are always others whose sole purpose is to undo or destroy what has been accomplished and built up! News Flash – We still speak today because God’s Spirit can neither be undone nor destroyed!
…in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, until the destroying storms pass by. Psalm 57 I know for myself, sometimes 40 days can feel like 40 years. I believe the body can not be sustained without first sustaining the spirit. This is achieved most effectively when first and foremost our graciousness for the opportunities of each day is presented before God. Each day given is an opportunity to choose God’s will and accept the wisdom of his grace. Then on the days when every possible storm passes by our first response will be to take refuge in the strength of God’s word as we wait it out. For God’s wisdom will surely be the reward.
‘One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:1-11
