The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor. Proverbs 15:33
God is so Good, So Gracious. I’m honored and thankful!
During the construction of these wallets I have thought to myself…What will I write? So many things have happen.
When I first thought of the idea of having these wallets as my next collection it was because I wanted to re-encourage not only Teachers but Students of the task yet ahead. To Finish what they have started in their school work.
Then it came to me like a flash flood. Being tossed about to and fro. And last Sunday really put things to perspective, through this verse:
Others went out on the sea in ships;
they were merchants on the mighty waters.
24They saw the works of the Lord,
his wonderful deeds in the deep.
25For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
that lifted high the waves.
26They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
in their peril their courage melted away.
27They reeled and staggered like drunken men;
they were at their wits’ end.
28Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he brought them out of their distress.
29He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed.
30They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.
31Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men. Psalm 107:23-31
The Lessons you learn and what GOD puts you through. You have to be all in. You just have to. You can’t be Luke warm, Because you will be spewed out;
o, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16
These last couple of weeks I have GONE THROUGH IT! PHEW! I mean Seriously! But I’m at a calm now! WOW.
HALLELUJAH! THANK YOU JESUS!
You know GOD didn’t promise us a life without adversity. I’ve learned that when you are OUT at Sea…With the waves crashing and the thought of “OH, I AM not GOING To MAKE it!” Hits you! GOD shows you WHO HE IS!
Let me clarify… If it wasn’t for the LOVE of CHRIST, I would not be here. IF it wasn’t for JESUS, FOR WHO HE IS, I’d given up a while back.
We must humble ourselves…In distress, call out to the LORD, humble yourself. Pride prevents us from seeing who JESUS is.
What GOD Calls you to do, HE surely Supplies!
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
I remember having a lunch date with a fellow Sister in Christ who is also a Business Owner, She had said,
“The Trails mean that you’re going to the next level, I just tell GOD, BRING ON THE NEXT ONE!”
All I could think of …wow, what faith. Does she know what she’s asking? I’m not in any hurry. lol…
Aren’t we all like that? Just let me chill here at the shore…one day I’ll sail the seas.
Sometimes GOD just Pulls a Jonah.. (Read: Jonah 1:17 – 2:10)
GOD shakes us, racks us so we wouldn’t be comfortable with our circumstances, So that we may be comfortable with HIM, with GOD, no matter what the circumstances.
We shouldn’t be Happy with what we GOT, we should be ecstatic about who HE IS!
Mighty, ALL POWERFUL, Creator of the UNIVERSE! Who Humbled Himself that we may live with HIM. That we may know GOD. How beautiful!
So if you’re going through a STORM, just know, You’re Getting Schooled by GOD and if you pass, You’ll go to the next Level.
I pray that you may pass with FLYING COLORS in the Name Of JESUS!
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
So let these wallets be a Reminder…Of the AWESOME Teachings of GOD, of JESUS CHRIST!
