The Way Maker

The word tells us that there remains a rest for the people of God and to be diligent to enter that rest. Yet it seems that we forever have that anxious mind that the word warns us against. As the dog days of summer settle in, I watch a friend of mine disc under the horse weeds of his last field and plant the beans. Its July 8th, shallow soil, wrong color, bench rock close. I see many just getting started on hay that’s 30 days past now. You can almost hear the whisper of the devourer trying to put your hopes and efforts down. You can’t, It won’t, he breaths in your ear. Hear this brothers and sisters - Can’t never done nothing and his brother Won’t never did either!!! Here's God’s rub against these two Brothers. All things work out for good to those who love the Lord and are called to His purpose.
I've always liked Paul’s words in 1st Thess 4-10-11. I urge you brethren that you increase the more & more. That you (Aspire !!!) to lead the quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands. That you may walk properly to those who are outside, that you may be complete and lack nothing.
He truly is a Way Maker
He has shown you O man
What is good
And what does the Lord
Require of you
But to do justly
To love mercy
And to walk humbly with your God (Micha 6-8)
