“Thus says The LORD, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it,’ ” Jeremiah 6:16 NKJV.
“For who among them has stood in the council of The LORD to see and to hear His Word, or who has paid attention to His Word and listened?” Jeremiah 23:18 ESV.
“Have any of these prophets been in The LORD’s presence to hear what he is really saying? Has even one of them cared enough to listen?” Jeremiah 23:18.
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks,” Luke 6:45 NKJV.
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us,” 2 Corinthians 2:7 NKJV.
Many are called but few are chosen.
So, what is The LORD really saying this day?
How has He been leading you?
Have you really been listening to what He is saying to you?
Have you seen what He has been showing forth from His Heart to yours?
Are you aware of the Presence of Holy Spirit?
We may not have been acknowledging Him with the mind that would be keenly sensitive to what He is doing and saying to you, or to many of us.
His mind is completely wrapped around everything and every single person He has created; all at the same time. Whereas we can’t seem to wrap our mind around some of the simplest things in our own lives.
His Word states, “What is man, that You are mindful of him…”
But He has given to us a great source and foundation for every thing we have been given to learn to believe, and that is your Faith.
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for; it is the evidence, or title deed of things not seen. It is by faith that the ancients, or elders obtained a great testimony.
For without faith it is impossible to please God. For he who comes to God must believe that He is God, and that He is the Rewarder unto those who diligently seek Him, (Hebrew 11:1,6).
Jesus gives us the assurance of things hoped for, for He says, “Ask, and it will be given. Seek, and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened unto you. For he who asks will receive, he who seeks will find, he who knocks, the door will be opened unto him…” Matthew 7:7.
He also promised, “If you abide in Me and My Word abides in you, you shall ask what you will and it will be done unto you. Herein is My Father glorified that you bear much fruit, so shall you be My disciples,” John 15:7.
“Therefore, I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God which is the right thing to do, it will be your worship… and be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God,” Romans 12:1-2.
He has called you by name. You belong to Him. You are always on His Mind.
