Wigs Word of God Today 6-22-2013
Skunks of sin does not scare me I only dislike it odor.
Three times I begged the LORD about this that it might leave me, but He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the Power of Christ may dwell with me. Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong. Second Corinthians 12:8-10
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will He not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’ All these things the pagans seek. Your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the Kingdom (of God) and His Righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil. Matthew 6:30-34
Second Corinthians 12:1-10, Psalm 34 & Matthew 6:24-34
What power do we have in weakness? Are we drawn to the Truth to obtain Power as we are drawn to sin to obtain weakness? The Power of our LORD comes to you in an instant by the practice, prayer and proclamation you surrender your life to just as much the power of the Evil One’s sin will overtake your life if you inundate your life with thoughts of self acting upon impulses signaling weakness obvious in Truth. Here, is where I believe we feel we have the audacity to outright sin while others around you are obviously drawn in by the mirage or if you will a façade we create to destroy our life. We find death wallowing in weakness while we find life thriving in Christ’s Power of Love.
By the knowledge you seek by reading your Bible daily in a deliberate act of practice can we obtain this grace that is “sufficient” to endure the outright disgust some people will spew towards you. This amazing Power of Christ’s Love gives you strength to say God Bless You or as Katherine Hepburn put it when facing scoundrels in the John Wayne Western “Rooster Cogburn”, “I wear God’s Armor. I do not fear a skunk. I just do not care for its odor.” We must practice being strong in Christ’s Power by the daily saturation of God’s Word where prayer becomes a natural consequence of breathing His Truth of Salvation.
While the odor of sin reeks, the sweet smell of Salvation laps up the weakness by the proclamation of His Word. To know this joy we must practice, pray and proclaim in every moment of life’s work. Here, we will find God providing as He Wills by seeking “the Kingdom (of God) and His Righteousness” stamping out sin reeking of Christ’s Sweet Smell of Love. I beg to boast in His Weakness to obtain the Power of God’s Grace eliminating worry trusting His Truth. I believe “all these things will be given you besides.” Parts of Psalm 23 ring in my soul, “Though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I shall fear no evil. For Thou art with me. I will prepare a table before my enemies. Surely the goodness of the LORD will follow me all the days of my life.” Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray for Your strength LORD to negate the worry of sin and sorrow. Novena prayers Day two for Tita. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 118:5-8 I chant- “In danger I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is with me; I am not afraid; what can mortals do against me? The LORD is with me as my helper; I shall look in triumph on my foes. Better to take refuge in the LORD than to put one’s trust in mortals.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Evil breeds evil one must sinfully agree– Matthew 6:24-34
Two become One for the meek
Not serving two to seek
Hating one despised as a freak
Mammon over God sinfully reeks
No worry as life entails
The drink and eat God prevails
Wearing His love never entails
The loss of Truth unless curtailed
Birds in the sky obviously living
Nothing stored as God would giving
Feeding them all nobody is privy
Aren’t wild flowers always pretty?
Anxious not about clothes or treats
Little faith are ye who asks what is to eat
Nor worry of your drink or the clothes you wear
The Pagans seek this as if they don’t care
Father in Heaven knows what you need
Seek His Righteousness and live to concede
Evil breeds evil one must sinfully agree
The LORD’s gifts given are all totally free
