Whoever spares the rod hates his son,
but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him. (Proverbs 13:24 ESV)

[7] “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose trust is the LORD.
[8] He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8 ESV)

Like a tree planted by the water, I shall not be moved!

That old Sunday School song from my youth still brings a smile to my face and a flood of memories. Memories of when I fully trusted in the LORD and memories of when I leaned upon my own abilities. Things always come out for the best when I fully trust in God and His will. Things, even with the best of intentions, seem to get mucked up when we lean upon ourselves, ignoring God and His will for our lives. Trust in Him, He will never steer you wrong!

Have a blessed day walking with God!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psalm 100 ESV)

Praise Him in everything!

Have a blessed day walking with God!

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. (Romans 12:14-18 ESV)

These simple words, just a few found in God's word, are virtually impossible for us to do without the spirit of God residing in us. Without God in us, could we willingly bless those who persecute us? Or would we have a burning desire to lash out and return their persecution upon them? If not for God's spirit in me I know I would be that person, with Him in me, I am able to bless and not curse those who persecute me. It truly is a miraculous change in us once we choose to  walk with God.

Have a blessed day walking with God my brothers and sisters!

But Moses said to the LORD, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”(Exodus 4:10-12 ESV)

God’s call to a task includes His strength to complete it. - Jaime Fernández Garrido

God will always equip us for what He has called us to do. It is also interesting to note that the ones He chooses are never the "rock star" people, they are usually the humble, quiet person, who has many excuses on why God should not use them. In Moses' case, a thick tongue . . . In my case severe nervousness in public speaking, singing, and playing my instruments. In both Moses and my situation, once we submitted to God's will, He gave us the strength, talent, courage . . . everything needed to complete our calling. Submit to His will today and your life will be so much better than you could ever imagine.

Have a blessed day walking with God!

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”  (John 4:23-26 ESV)

[27] Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. [28] Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. [29] For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.  (1 Corinthians 11:27-29 ESV)

When we look into the mirror of God’s Word, we see ourselves more clearly. - Julie Ackerman link

Self evaluation through God's word is a great way to grow in your walk with God. It takes your focus off of the external, and gets you to look deeper at your inner being, and how well you are walking with the Father.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16 ESV)

Hide it under a bushel, NO! I'm gonna let it shine! Hide it under a bushel, NO! I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

I loved singing that song as a child in Sunday School. That simple song holds a simple truth. When you have the light of the LORD in you, you cannot help letting it shine for all to see. When you first receive salvation, you cannot help running out and telling everyone you meet how wonderful Jesus is and your new found freedom in Him! let us not hide this light. Let us not become secret Christians. Instead let us stand up and proclaim His name to all the world! 

18 Jesus came forward and addressed His beloved disciples. I am here speaking with all the authority of God, who has commanded Me to give you this commission: 19 Go out and make disciples in all the nations. Ceremonially wash them through baptism in the name of the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-19, The Voice)

Go and spread the word about Jesus!

Have a blessed day walking with God!

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.
And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.” He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”  (Genesis 3:6-13 ESV)

Sin looks inviting and may(temporarily) feel good, but it doesn’t compare with the wonder, beauty, and fragrance of trusting and obeying God, who has made us to share His life and joy. - Marvin Williams

Sinful things may temporarily satisfy us, but once the moment is past we are on to the next great thing that will satisfy us . . . but for a moment. Walking with God, obeying Him also will satisfy us; not for a moment but for eternity.

Have a blessed day walking with God!

Some went down to the sea in ships,
doing business on the great waters;
they saw the deeds of the LORD,
his wondrous works in the deep.
For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,
which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;
their courage melted away in their evil plight;
they reeled and staggered like drunken men
and were at their wits' end.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad that the waters were quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,
and praise him in the assembly of the elders.  (Psalm 107:23-32 ESV)

Call out to God while you are in the storms of life and He will answer. As a sailor I can truly relate to today's Scripture. I have ridden out the storms on the seas and oceans. Holding on tightly while riding out Hurricane Ewa off the coast of Oahu, a tropical storm on the Indian ocean, or a winter gale on the Sea of Japan. But all of that was on a modern Navy vessel. I cannot truly relate to how it would have felt in an open cockpit, sailing vessel with the wind, sea spray, and rain beating down. I can almost hear the sailors prayers now though.
God is always there with us. All we need to do is call out. But do not wait until the storm to do so. Praise Him in all things. The good, the bad, the easy, and the hard.

Have a blessed day walking with God!

So needed to hear this song this morning. With you in heart Jesus, it is well with my soul!

Gladden the soul of your servant, 
for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. (Psalm 86:4 ESV)

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:35-39 ESV)

Storms will come and go as we journey through this life. In Scripture God ensures us that He will always be there with us. That He will never leave or forsake us. We can take heart in this. 

In studying about this this morning I came across a writing by John Maxwell concerning this incident that I really like and wanted to share it reads:

     "When a terrifying storm convinced the disciples they were about to die, they forgot one important factor: Jesus was in the boat and had told them they were going to the other side of the lake. His word always comes to pass.
      When they finally awakened Jesus, He got up, rebuked the wind and the sea, and everything became completely calm. So long as the disciples assumed control of their situation, Jesus rested. But when they cast their care on Him, He cared for everything and they could rest."

Not only does this retelling of the occurrence show Jesus' power over the wind and sea, act as a reminder that He is with us always even when tempests toss us to and fro, it is also a reminder that when we step aside and let Him be in control, we can rest.

The storms of life prove the strength of our anchor. - Albert Lee
