Matt 7:7-12 NKJV
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek , and you
will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For
everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and
to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is
there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will
give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he
give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know
how to give good gifts to your children, how much more
will your Father who is in heaven give good things to
those who ask Him!
Parable. Will you sup with Me?
IMPRESSION AND PIX:
I had the sudden impression that I was sitting
downstairs in the restaurant with Jesus. Then I saw His
hands reach across the table and grab my hands. He was
trying to reach out to me in His deep love.
WORD TO PONDER: STOKING
OUR FIRE 11/07/08
Beloved when the provision of
food or fuel becomes scarce between us, I take notice of
your efforts. Sometimes the fire grows too cold, and it
becomes time to add more fuel. Sometimes it is time to
stir the coals. Sometimes it is time to blow upon the
embers. I see you working hard to gather your coal to
keep our fires burning strong. Beloved all that you
overcome to maintain our communion together is precious
commitment to Me. The provision may appear ample or
scarce, but you will never be without. My promise to
you is daily bread. Do not let that portion go, don’t
give up no matter how small or large. Come, My love.
Rest and sit with Me and let us share our meal
Isa 54:16-17 NKJV
"Behold, I have created
the blacksmith Who blows the coals in the fire, Who
brings forth an instrument for his work; And I have
created the spoiler to destroy. No weapon formed
against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises
against you in judgment
You shall condemn. This is
the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their
righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.
