Be Still! 4/13/16
Be Still! 4/13/16





Proverbs 13:15 (KJV)
15  Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.

" BUT the way of the transgressors is HARD!"

On the other hand, as my dear friend proclaimed:

" IF IT IS OF GOD, IT IS EASY!"

The Biblical definition of a TRANSGRESSOR is:

a primitive root; to cover (with a garment); figurative to act covertly; by implication to pillage :- deal deceitfully (treacherously, unfaithfully), offend, transgress (-or), (depart), treacherous (dealer, -ly, man), unfaithful (-ly, man), × very.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Was it not God, Himself, who stopped the TRANSGRESSION of Saul/Paul with instant blindness and these Words:

Acts 9:5 (KJV)
5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.  

PRICKS-from kenteo (to prick); a point ("centre"), i.e. a sting (figurative poison) or goad (figurative divine impulse) :- prick, sting.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

" IT IS HARD FOR THEE TO KICK AGAINST THE PRICKS!"

The Prophet Samuel scolded King Saul with these Words:

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV)
22  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

"TO OBEY IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE!!"

How much EASIER/BETTER is it to simply say:

Isaiah 6:8 (KJV)
8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.  

I GRIEVE over the too many who HAVE and DO "shoot THEMSELVES in the foot!"

MAMA used to say, "How often do I want to run away and hide, BUT then I realize I take my worst enemy with me-MYSELF!"

Too often do WE get caught in one of satan's traps and yet, WE refuse to:

Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

We MUST learn to live by this Truth:

Psalm 127:1 (KJV)
1
  Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


Or, when all else fails, read the Manufacturers Handbook-the Bible!!


THERE IS AN ANSWER FOR EVERY QUESTION FOUND THEREIN!!!


Psalm 119:9-11 (KJV)
9
 
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.  


10  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.  


11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.


TODAY, if you find yourself in a dilemma that you know how to wiggle free-STOP WIGGLING!


James 1:5 (KJV)
5   If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  


ASK GOD!!!!


STOP/CEASE ALL ACTIVITY AND WAIT ON THE LORD!


Psalm 27:14 (KJV)
14  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.  


STOP defending yourself, excusing yourself, explaining yourself!


A friend does not need an explanation and an enemy will never believe it/you anyway!


James 4:12 (KJV)
12  There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?  


TODAY, HIDE this in your heart:


Proverbs 16:7 (KJV)
7  When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

PLEASE!!??

GOD BLESS YOU!
