Welcome to "SATURDAY STROLL!"
In these posts I will be interacting with Scripture – making it a conversational walk of faith.
Sometimes we'll be talking with Jesus, sometimes God will be talking to us.
There might even be *guest appearances* by some of our beloved characters from the Bible!
So put on your walking shoes – you know we can all use the exercise!
Moses has a talk with me:
Sharon, I have told you the commands and regulations that the LORD our God has told me to teach you.
You are about to enter a new year, 2012, and it's important that you obey them.
The LORD has new territory awaiting you – He is opening up new doors of opportunity.
So, listen closely, Sharon, and be careful to obey.
Moses, I sense the LORD moving in new directions. I want nothing more than to hear what His purposes are for me.
Good! The most important thing to remember is the LORD is our God, yours and mine. And He is the only true God.
Yes, so much false teaching out there, Moses. So many people saying that there are many roads to God, many roads to heaven.
Ah, yes. But there is only the road of salvation through Jesus Christ. Only God's way to the Promised Land.
So, how do I obey Him?
First things first.
Love the LORD your God with all of your heart…
All of my loyalty, my feelings, my desires…
And all of your soul…
All of my thoughts, my character, and my innermost being, the core of who I am…
And all of your strength…
All of my patience, endurance, perseverance…
And you must commit yourself wholeheartedly to Him. Repeat His commands and promises again and again.
Talk about them – when you're at home and when you're out and about. When you are going to bed and when you are getting up.
Yes, Moses – at all times, I will remember the words of God.
Fear the LORD your God and serve Him. Be diligent. Do what is right and good in His sight.
Fear the LORD, and He will continue to bless you and preserve you.
I will fear the LORD, for those who fear Him will have all they need.
God has promised the crown of life to those who love Him.
Oh, how I love Him…
(From Deuteronomy 6, Psalms 34, and James 1)
