Encouragements I have gleaned along the way May-July
■Psalm 23 – the table is spread before us in the midst of our enemies. I need to fix my eyes on Jesus not on the enemy
■Road to Emmaus. Jesus HIMSELF made all the difference. Not knowing about him or hearing about him. His own presence is what transformed the travellors
■Jesus at the tomb of Lazarus. He took Mary where she least wanted to go – the tomb. She had to face the pain to see the miracle
■Phil 3:8…everything else is worthless when compared to the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord
■Romans 8:17 If we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering
■Jeremiah 23:29 Does not my word burn like fire? says the Lord. He is a ‘hammer that smashes a rock to pieces’
■there is a wind of his fire on the move…a new wind
■I must discover, live in, the fear of the Lord
■When we open our mouths to speak in his name I must have the fear of the Lord in our hearts. Then I will say only his words & not go beyond them. Then my words will burn like fire.
■I am adorned in royal robes…….endure the suffering…don’t kick against it…even the loneliness…allow it to drive you deeper into God.
