My heart delights to see you live and walk in peace. That peace which surpasses all understanding will keep your heart and being healthy and wise. The devil likes to irritate you with the statement that when you submit to God all things will be peaceful for you. He knows God never promises a continuous bed of roses to those who believe in Him. Satan wants you to curse God and believe He is a liar. He hates God above all things and wishes the same for you. When you submit to God, things go well for you because you follow God's instructions and store them in your heart. Then peace radiates and manifests to My glory and your good.
Job 22:21-22 "Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you. Listen to his instructions, and store them in your heart." Ras Robinson.
Years ago when we lived in Tennessee we had a friend who grew up in the apple growing region of the mountains. Her family picked apples by the barrels full to eat and sell. She said her father told her family to always choose the best apples from the barrel. Don't choose the ones to keep them from going bad. "Keep making good choices. Keep your thoughts, attitudes and actions on the healthy, good, best happenings of life. The good is always there, but right beside it can be the bad and rotten. Cast those away. Dwell on the good. Give your best to others and it will return to others.
Philippians 4:8 (MSG) "Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious-the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse." Bev Robinson
In our household, my wife and daughter wear glasses that have transition lenses. The lenses automatically darken when entering direct sunlight outdoors and return to clear when indoor light is present. The Lord asks, "What steps are you taking to adjust to being in My Son's light? Are you taking necessary means to accommodate Our revelation? Are you continuing with the status quo? In My presence there is fullness of joy and love never ending. Will you take the time to make permanent adjustments in your spiritual vision? Make the transition in your life from artificial light to My pure light. Only you know what type of light source you have.
Isaiah 60:19-20 (NASB) "No longer will you have the sun for light by day, nor for brightness will the moon give you light; but you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, and your God for your glory, your sun will set no more, neither will your moon wane; for you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be finished."
