Are you ready?

1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.The Bible commands us to be ready always to give an answer to every man.So one simple question are you ready? And the only way when can be ready is to, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15.May God richly bless your day in Christ.

What do you do?

In chapter 36 of Isaiah we read of a threat to king Hezekiah and what he does about it,but then in chapter 37 it comes again and we see what Hezekiah does ( and what this post is about.) and when he received the letter he read it and went up unto the house of the Lord (and spread it before The Lord. And prayed unto the Lord.) So many times when I receive something I don’t like I seem to always desire to go to others then the Lord,When the Lord should be first!I’m not at all trying to say that seeking christian counseling from others is wrong,but when it is put before the Lord that is wrong!God knows all the solutions to every matter,even when they seem hopeless,we just have to be listening to Him.The Bible says in Psalm 37:7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him… I once heard a preacher preach; why settle for going to a fellow servant,when you can go straight to the Master? May God richly bless your day in Christ.

Where is your strength?

… In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.Isaiah 30:15 The Lord was promising to the children of Israel that in quietness and confidence {faith} their strength would be, but they would not. So we see in the next verse that they chose to flee upon horses and to be swift instead of simply trusting in the promise God had given to them.And then on down in verse 18 as a result of their disobedience that the Lord waited to be gracious to them, so that He would be exalted, and have mercy upon. I know so many times I have a hard time just simply trusting what God has promised to me. God is a loving God, but He is also a righteous judge on the disobedient.May God richly bless your day in Christ.
