Making a Difference
So, I've sat on this gift of mine for a long time. Life has been very busy, yet at the same time, it's also easy for me to procrastinate and end up doing many little things and not the most important 'tasks' God has given me. It's so easy to just check off your daily list of 'chores' and then at the end of the day realize that there were people who needed your attention, and that once again you did not take the time to use the gift that God has given you. I know that writing is my gift. I know that encouraging others is my gift. I know that words of knowledge is my gift.
In the multitude of your anxious thoughts within you, God's comfort will cheer and delight your soul (Psalm 94:19). Set the Lord continually before you; because He is at your right hand, you shall not be moved. Therefore your heart is glad and your inner self rejoices; your body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety,....
You have learned the Truth and the Truth has set you free from all those things that have held you in bondage (John 8:32). For you were indeed called to freedom; only do not let your freedom be an incentive to your flesh and an opportunity or excuse for selfishness, but through love you should serve one another (Galatians 5:13). So, walk in this freedom. Never go back to where you were! You must always walk away from it...
Tenderhearted...generous...powerful. This is what you are. You are made powerful by relying on the Lord and becoming strong in His Strength. The Lord's Strength is all the strength you will ever need. You gain His strength by continually going into His Presence and resting and meditating and learning His Word. With His Word, you can cast down every demon in hell and heal every body on earth. With God's Word, you can reunite broken families and broken hearts. With Yahweh's Word, you have the power to change the world. There is nothing you can not do when you are doing God's Will and doing it His Way....
The excellency of knowledge is that wisdom shields and preserves the life of him who has it (Ecclesiastes 7:12). You know that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10).
