God Gives Us Courage to Walk in His Way

Walking with Jesus

“The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.” Proverbs 10:29

“If from the beginning we had walked in the counsel of God, thousands more would have been converted to the present truth. But many have made crooked paths for their feet. My brethren make straight paths, lest the lame, be turned out of the way. Let no one follow a crooked path that someone else has made, for thus you would not only go astray yourself but would make the crooked path plainer for someone else to follow. Determine that as for yourself, you will walk in the path of obedience. Know for certain that you are standing under the broad shield of Omnipotence. Realize the characteristics of Jehovah must be revealed in your life, and that in you a work must be accomplished that will mold your character after the divine similitude. Yield yourself to the guidance of him who is the Head over all.

“We are doing our work for the judgment. Let us be learners of Jesus. We need His guidance every moment. At every step we should inquire, “Is this the way of the Lord?” not, “Is this the way of the man who is over me?” We are to be concerned only as to whether we are walking in the way of the Lord.

“God will honor and uphold every true-hearted, earnest soul who is seeking to walk before Him in the perfection of Christ’s grace. He will never leave nor forsake one humble, trembling soul. Shall we believe that He will work in our hearts? that if we allow Him to do so, He will make us pure and holy, by His rich grace qualifying us to be laborers together with Him? Can we with keen, sanctified perception appreciate the strength of His promises, and appropriate them, not because we are worthy, but because by living faith we claim the righteousness of Christ?

There is nothing so great and powerful as God’s love for those who are His children.”

God’s grace is justice and mercy.

May the Lord bless you and keep you and may His face always shine upon you and give you peace!

Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit!

Light brings joy, happiness, and peace

“Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3

“Christ longed to fill the world with peace and joy that would be a similitude of that found in the heavenly world . . . . From His divine lips there fell with fullness and abundant assurance the benedictions that showed him to be the fountain of all goodness, and that it was His prerogative to bless and impress the minds of all present. He was engaged in His peculiar, sacred province, and the treasures of eternity were at His command. In the disposal of them, He knew no control. It was no robbery with Him to act in the office of God. In His blessings, He embraced those who were to compose His kingdom in this world. He had brought into the world every blessing essential to the happiness and joy of every soul, and before that vast assemble He presented the riches of the grace of heaven, the accumulated treasures of the eternal, everlasting Father. . . .

He specifies those who shall become heirs of God and joint heirs with Himself. He proclaims publicly His choice of subjects and assigns them their place in His service as united with Himself. Those who possess the character specified will share with Him in the blessings and glory and honor that will ever come to him.

He who feels whole, who thinks that he is reasonably good, and is contented with his condition, does not seek to become a partaker of the grace and righteousness of Christ. Pride feels no need, and so it closes the heart against Christ. Pride feels no need, and so it closes the heart against Christ and the infinite blessings He came to give. There is no room for Jesus in the heart of such a person. . . . Those who know that they cannot possibly save themselves, or of themselves do any righteous action, are the ones who appreciate the help that Christ can bestow. They are the poor in spirit, whom He declares to be blessed.

The future will be filled with God’s Plan to deliver all who trust and obey the Ten Rules for His Kingdom. Do not bow down to the dictator who wishes to silence THE VOICE OF FREEDOM! Do not take the chip or tattoo.
