It was men’s group last night and God showed up. Without going into details, because what is said in group stays in group. God showed up and showed off. There is freedom coming for men in our group. Warriors would be better suited. One of the last things I wrote yesterday was “For me right now, I need to get to where I am in Awe of the Lord and His greatness and Holiness” That is what I and the other 16 men witnessed last night. Men trusting men with their hearts. Seeing his mighty hand work through evening and drawing men out. Thank You Jesus.
This morning as I am reading how mighty our Lord is in “The Fear of the Lord” about the universe. It has hard to fathom how big it really is and the Lord knows the name of every star.
I move into reading the Psalm 91 and it is good and I read Psalm 92 and it is good, but I am looking for something to leap off the page at me. Then I remember earlier when I read in my Men of Integrity and I felt I was suppose to read in 1 Timothy 4 and once again scripture comes alive to me “Rhema”
1 Timothy 4:7-16
But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; 8 for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
Spiritual discipline that is what comes first. Doing things for the Lord because you Love Him not because you have to.
9 It is a trustworthy statement deserving full acceptance. 10 For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers. 11 Prescribe and teach these things. 12 Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. 13 Until I come, give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching. 14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed on you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery. 15 Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all. 16 Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.NASB95
This is good; I think this goes hand in hand with what I have been writing about since the start of this journal. When I look back it is all intertwined.
Thank You Jesus
