Seeking God in His Word and Hearing His Voice

Faith Trust Obedience is a theme I used while sending daily text messages to several individuals with whom I had a spiritual connection. These texts were sent during different times of the day; over a period of two and a half years. Below are a few of the texts that I sent. I pray that you, too, will find comfort and inspiration in these words and scriptures:

It's very simple, if you seek that which is right, honorable, kind, and good, you will find life, honor, pleasure, and righteousness. Proverbs 21:17-26, 2 Corinthians 5:1-10, Micah 5, Micah 6, Micah 7.
Trust God! Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added.

The Psalmist tells us to give thanks to God and to tell of his wonderful works. We who believe that Jehovah God is the creator of all can tell of something God has done in our life. What you tell may be just what someone needs to hear. Then thank God for the blessing. Psalms 105:1-11, 2 Corinthians 5:11-21, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Isaiah 1, Isaiah 2.
Trust God! Thank God! Pray to him by name! Tell everyone you meet what he has done! Honor his holy name with Hallelujah! Trust Him!

Whether we do right or whether we do wrong, we will be rewarded according to the works of our hands, well for the good and ill for the wicked. How do we do right if we remain in the company (companionship) of the wicked? Psalms 105:12-22, 2 Corinthians 6:3-18, 2 Corinthians 7:1, Isaiah 3, Isaiah 4, Isaiah 5:1-7.
Trust God! Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. (Proverbs 13:20) Trust Him!

How difficult it is for us to stand still and let the Lord God work out his plans when in our times of trouble and despair. Ask God for anything, Isaiah, the prophet, told Ahaz, the King. Ahaz said nope, I'll do it my way. Bad decision! Psalms 105:23-26, 2 Corinthians 7:2-16, Isaiah 5:8-30, Isaiah 6, Isaiah 7, Isaiah 8:1-10.
Trust God! Let God have his way. Call on him. Trust Him!

We are only to fear God. Everything else is under God's control. Everything we need, everyone we need God can and will provide.  So revere God for his awesome might and  power, and for his grace and mercy. Proverbs 21:27-31, Proverbs 22:1-6, 2 Corinthians 8:1-15, Isaiah 8:11-22, Isaiah 9, Isaiah 10:1-19.
Trust God! ‘The rich and the poor shake hands as equals – God made them both!’ (Prov.2, MSG. Trust Him!

The psalmist says "The Lord brought forth his people with joy and his chosen with gladness." Aren't you glad about that? We are the Lord's people therefore we rejoice and give God the praise for all he has done and is doing. Psalms 105:37-45, 2 Corinthians 8:16-24, 2 Corinthians 9:1, Isaiah 10:20-34, Isaiah 11, Isaiah 12, Isaiah:13.
Trust God! Thank you Lord. Praise God from whom all blessing flow. Trust Him!

Labor Day! We honor those who labored to build this country. The psalmist reminds us of one whose work we often forget or overlook just like the Israelites did; the works of our God.
Psalms 106:1-152 Corinthians 9:6-15, Isaiah 10:20-34, Isaiah 14, Isaiah 15, Isaiah:16.
Trust God! Don't forget to praise and thank God for all things. Honor the work of his hands.
Trust Him!

Through Faith, Trust and Obedience may the Grace of God and the peace which passes all understanding be with you now and always!
