Reflections for September 16 of ’08

 From Proverbs 16:

3 Commit your actions to the Lord,

and your plans will succeed.

9 We can make our plans,

But the Lord determines our steps.


As I read Proverbs 16 these stood out for me.  My response was to pray :

As I begin the day this is my prayer.  And I can rest in knowing that my day will follow the will of the Lord.


Then reading from John:


John 7:28-30


28 While Jesus was teaching in the Temple, he called out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I come from. But I’m not here on my own. The one who sent me is true, and you don’t know him. 29 But I know him because I come from him, and he sent me to you.”

What stood out for me was: 

The one who sent me is true, and you don’t know him. 29 But I know him because I come from him, and he sent me to you.”


My response:

I know the Father and so I recognize the Son.  Now I need to get to know Him better than ever.


Finally, listening to “Days of Refreshing” I gleaned the following:


First, the greatest manifestation of love is giving. Therefore, we should enjoy each other. This is demonstrating love.

Second, be on the watch, to bless; what can I do?

Finally, when offenses occur, speak good about those who offended. Both to them and about them.  Make it easy for them to come back.  Don’t say anything you might have to apologize for later.

Remember, love covers a multitude of sins (offenses)  as a blanket covers what shouldn’t be seen.


Make your day the best it can be by being open to the leading of the Spirit, exercising your faith and using the annointing given to you.
