Food for thought    27th May 09

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
(Psalm 121:3,4)



The Lord is saying. If you were Me do you think you would do things differently? You are confused as to why things are going this way. Do not try to think it through, but trust me with all of your heart. I will not let you down and when this thing is over you will see why events went like they did and why I asked you to thank in all things. Keep walking with me child, keep praising, for your attempts to obey me are not being wasted and are working, for you, an eternal glory, as you look unto the unseen and act upon my promptings.

2 Corinthians 4:17,18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.


There are times when we just have to hold on to our trust in Jesus and not throw our confidence away. The word of God is a rock that is the safest harbour in the fiercest storm for it is eternal and cannot fail. Everything around us can fail but not God's word.

I pray today that we will have grace to trust in God's mighty sovereignty, power and love and to see all circumstances as opportunities to show our wonderful saviour our faith in Him. In Jesus's precious name.




There is a Light, a blessèd Light,
That comes from God above;
And in the face of Christ the Lord,
Reflects the Father's love.

Let us walk in the Light,
Ever walk in the Light of God;
Let us walk in the Light,
Ever walk in the Light of God.
There is a Light, a glorious Light,
That falls upon our way;
And brighter shineth as we go,
Till lost in perfect day.

There is a Light, a Holy Light,
By which we now behold
The jasper walls, the pearly gates
And streets of shining gold.

O blessèd, blessèd, Holy Light,
To all so freely giv'n;
Shine forth, shine forth, O Light of Life,
And guide us safe to Heav'n.
