Black Eagle, you sure are right!
Skullfr, God WILL show you where he wants you to be - no doubt about it.
Jack, GOOD WORK!!
One of Rabbi Ben Jochai's scholars once asked him, "Why did not the Lord furnish enough manna to Israel for a year all at one time?"
The teacher said, "I will answer you with a parable. Once there was a king who had a son to whom he gave a yearly allowance, paying him the entire sum on the fixed date. It soon happened that the day on which the allowance was due was the only day of the year when the father ever saw his son. So the king changed his plan and gave his son day by day that which was sufficient for the day; and then the son visited his father every morning. How he needed his father's unbroken love, companionship, wisdom and giving! Thus God dealt with Israel and deals with us."
Psalms 68:19 (KJV);“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation - Selah”
Proverbs 8:34-35(KJV);“Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.”
“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.”
How often do we ask God for something, and only receive partial what we asked for! Have you asked for a HEALING, but instead received a lessening of the problem, but it still persisted? How often have you asked God to deal with a situation, and instead he gives you the strength to continue in it yourself? At those times, remember that this could be God’s way of assuring that you keep in touch with him on a DAILY – or oftener - basis!
Speak to your Father at LEAST once a day – and attend a worship service at LEAST once a week!
May God bless each one of you -
