Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name
Have you forsaken that which you have craved for in your past life. Did you do it with conviction and courage, only to wake up one day in doubt, unbelief and regret.
You then find yourself laboring to restore your glory.
Be encouraged, you forsook out of a pure heart. You were in a place of REST, bur in every REST there is a TEST. You will be delivered from this test, through him, because you have set your love upon Him. Not only that, you will also be promoted by Him.
Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.
We live in a very busy world. As such, one of the best tools to master is our calendar. Every once in a while something may slip. There is a good chance it slipped because we get caught up in the business. That is not the time to condemn ourselves. Let’s recognize it for what it is. We walked by sight and not by faith in that instance. In times like this we simply repent, and seek the Lord for His direction at the beginning, during and at the end of the following days.
If the Lord never count sin (whatsoever is not of faith) against us, then neither should we.
4 The Lord Jehovah hath given me the tongue of [a]them that are taught, that I may know how [b]to sustain with words him that is weary:
This has to be one of the most powerful text I have read in the Bible.
I once heard Pastor Charles Stanley say, “when you find yourself Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired, just scream out HALT. It should stop you in your tracks.” In other words, when you find yourself weary, shout out, HALT. There are countless times I have applied those words of wisdom.
But what if it is the other person who is weary. What is they are coming to you with guns blazing, from a place of weariness.
Isaiah, makes it, clear, even in situations like we must recognize that it’s not about us. We’ve got to look past the person and see the problem (weariness). Once we do that, we then speak a word that can strengthen and support the other person physically and emotionally.
119 1-8 You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God. You’re blessed when you follow His directions, doing your best to find Him. That’s right—you don’t go off on your own; you walk straight along the road He set. You, God, prescribed the right way to live; now You expect us to live it. Oh, that my steps might be steady, keeping to the course You set; Then I’d never have any regrets in comparing my life with Your counsel. I thank You for speaking straight from Your heart;
While I appreciate the great business books and subject matter experts out here, let’s not confuse the wind from the sails..
Our “sails” are set by Him.
As you read this message, do you find yourself setting your course or speaking to the wind, “peace be still.”
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.Acts 4:11
12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.Mark 9:12
When God SET’s you, it doesn’t matter what it looks like on the surface. It may look like you are set at naught (set at the Zero Mark) ONLY if you are comparing yourself to someone else.
When God sets you there is no other fingerprint like yours on the planet.
Like Bamboo, which may show little to no growth in the first few years, (where it may seem like you are down for the count,) your growth has a set time (because you are set and marked by God) and it will have a sudden growth.
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
There is nothing wrong with Business Planning, however, it can NEVER assume or replace the role of our Divine plan.
In marketing, the gurus will say, “it is important to identify your niche, develop a strategy to pursue your niche.” That may be a fact, but the truth of the matter is, when our Divine Plan is in play, instead of pursuing (seeking after) our niche, the pursued, now becomes, the seeker.
The seeker then comes to our light (aka order) along with “kings,” who in the business plan will be refereed to under the financial strategy section.
Disclaimer: Am I saying, “do not write a business plan? “Absolutely Not.”
What I am saying is it is more important that we SET our eyes on Entropy (the change in state from order to disorder) than Economy.
