Most people want to control all aspects of their lives.
They don't want to just let go in simple childlike faith and trust God fully.
To this type of person the above text will be very irritating.
They will want everything to be totally under their control as they perceive things.
They will not be content until all is in place as they think it should be, even though the 'content' and 'meaning' of the above text still comes across inspite of the spelling.
God at times will hide His hand at work in our lives even though He is still at work.
We may think that all is just chaos and out of control.
We may even go so far as to think that we have done something wrong and are abandoned by God in a sense.
Nothing could be farther from the truth!
Isaiah 55:8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God requires us to put our trust in Him.
At times we may not know or comprehend what is going on in our life at a given moment.
It is enough to acknowledge that God is still upon His throne and all is well inspite of what we perceive or may think.
He is at work.
I once heard a wonderful woman of God (Corey Ten Boom) say that from our earthly vantage point it looks like the chaotic underside of a work of embroidery and that from God's orderly heavenly vantage point it looks as it should look.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way...
Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way...
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God requires us to put our trust in Him. So simple a child can do it.
2 Samuel 22:31
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Almighty Master Creator God can be trusted.
Jesus Christ loves you dearly!
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
12For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
Has God made promises to you?
Does it seem as though you may have misunderstood?
The enemy of our soul is a thief and a robber.
Satan will seek to rob us of the promises of God.
He will seek to convince us that we were wrong and that the promise of God was only in our imagination, nothing more then a foolish day dream.
Satan will do anything to get us to doubt God, he will do anything to rob us of God's promises to us.
Do not look to circumstances of life to decide if God is faithful or not.
He is still upon His throne and in all command and authority!
Speaking of Satan:
... He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Look to the content of Gods promises to you and not your current circumstances or anything else.
2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: Our God is able.
And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
We are so thankful to You today for all that You have done and are doing for us.
Today we acknowledge Your loving hand at work in our lives inspite of what we perceive or think.
We know that Your Word is truth.
We know that You are in full control of our lives and that you are able.
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Hallelujah! Praise The Lord! So shall it be...
"Difficult-to-read fonts make for better learning, according to scientists.
The finding is about to be published in the international journal Cognition.
Researchers at Princeton University employed volunteers to learn made-up information about different types of aliens — and found that those reading harder fonts recalled more when tested 15 minutes later.
The article goes on to note a second test in a real school environment:
'Keen to see if their findings actually worked in practice, the Princeton University team then tested their results on 222 students aged between 15 and 18 at a secondary school in Chesterfield, Ohio.'...
'Students given the harder-to-read materials scored higher in their classroom assessments than those in the control group.
This was the case across a range of subjects — from English, to Physics to History.'"
