If you want to be distressed..
If you want to be defeated...
If you want to be distracted..
If you want to be dismayed...
If you want to be DELIVERED
LOOK TO CHRIST!
Many years ago I wrote this on the front page of my Bible as a reminder to not let these things hinder my walk with the LORD. I could write so much about each of these listed..but I think it best for you dear reader to think upon these yourself and let the LORD speak to your heart.
As I began to read once again a wonderful book....Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret... I was blessed with these words on the first page...
Bear not a single care thyself,
One is too much for thee;
The work is Mine, and Mine alone;
Thy work- to rest in ME.
As a born again believer...I have the choice to trust. Have I not already trusted Christ for my very souls eternity! and can I not trust him for each days care?
Oh, dear one...think upon these phrases...ponder them in your heart and have faith.
Enough that God my Father knows:-
Nothing this faith can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.
We thank Thee, Lord, for pilgrim days
When desert springs were dry,
When first we knew what depths of need
Thy love could satisfy.
Oh how I have found this true in my life...
the desert spring when dry...
HIS love indeed did satisfy!
The SEASONS of our life...
EACH must be seen as the time for which it is purposed.
The deliverance is there...if we just...
LOOK TO CHRIST.
