Lace Up

Deuteronomy 29:   For forty years God has led you through the wilderness, yet your clothes haven’t become old, and your shoes haven’t worn out!  source

You know the account here, right? During the Hebrews’ wilderness journey GOD supplied all their needs and some of that supplying came by way of supernatural interventions, miracles.

I heard it today this way: GOD in His grace may keep our shoes from wearing out, but we do have to put them on and lace them up!

As  I sit before this page, I am hearing  a media stream and I’m giving thanks.  Thanks that every soul who desires to have their eyes opened, will be.  Spiritual blindness is optional and I am so grateful that ABBA is willing and able to open blinded eyes and hearts. I believe He is doing that today. Why? Because in His grace He is doing a work in me. To HIM be all the glory!

Yep. When appropriate, He does keep our shoes from wearing out but we still have to shoe up and lace up.

I like this fit!  smiley-face-3tws-signature

A Key

I’m still praying, still thinking about this word authentic; what it means to be and live authentically this year.  Perhaps there is more than one key to authentic living but here’s one. Just a thought I had today. 

If I believe GOD loves me based only on what I see Him do or allow to be done, there will be times I will doubt He loves me. But if I believe He loves me based on who HE IS, I will always KNOW He loves me. 

I John 4:16 TLV
So we have come to know and trust in the love that God has for us. God is love.   . .  .      source 

Yes He has love for us but much more importantly HE IS LOVE always and forever. Not something a finite brain can get itself wrapped around but we will . . . someday.  And until then we will learn day by day to trust what we have heard. 

Romans 10:17  (AMPC) 
17 So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).    source
