Hebrews 4:12-14 (Amp)
12For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
13And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
14Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him].

God sees and knows all things, so when we are called to Him to Come And bow to Him, in His Presence-we do so in all of our nakedness.

We have been called to give answer to His questioning of our days. How we spend our days. It is not “The Judgment Day”, No, it is today, tomorrow, one day next week or next month; He calls us to His presence and in All our nakedness we bow to recieve healing And help.
The Children of The Way.

Ephesians 5:15-17 Amp
15Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), 16Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.
17Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.

As we strive each day to live an authentic life, there are many times where we have to give an honest account to Him of our daily work. Have we walked in Faith –walked in His love-in an honest fruit bearing level of personal truth?
Deep within us is our personal truth and this can either keep us from living a truthful life, or it could be the place where you feel His love for you.
Down in the depths of our being—our trumpets blow announcing our Faith and our unquestionable belief in Him.

This place deep in us is also where the cries originate from-Crying out for His help in our most critical overwhelming time of need. And our faith knows that He has heard our cry for His help—Our Faith knows that He has heard our Praise to Him.

Just like Daniel’s Faith knew all the while they were lowering him into the lion’s den. Daniel 6

He knew-We know-Joshua knew-We know.

They both knew because they dwelled in the presence of God, maintaining their relationship with Him.

He Has heard our cry’s for His help-And so He Does.

Too many times to count we have prayed for Him to take what is impossible from us and replace it with His miracle.

Many times we have held the results of some bad decision in our hands and prayed for Him to please turn this mistake into one of His miracles. Sometimes the mess that we hold is not of our making but somehow- it is in our hands.

Many times He answers with the opening of a window or door-where there was none. Many times the Lord answers with silence that is so strong and loud all we can do is sit there with the mess and wait on Him. With the truth wide awake in us that We know He is going to help us.

Just like Daniel, and so many others in the Scriptures that we learn from, do we see the truth that, God and Jesus always seemed to wait till the person was fully emerged in the mess, or had even died in the mess before they showed up.

Remember that the next time you are facing some natural overdue bill, or a need for daily substance is growling at you. He Is going to show up if you Expect Him to.

He is God and we are not. We do not need to forget that. It is the trust that gives us the knowledge that the answer to our deepest need will come from the Only Source available to us. There is no need to look anywhere else.

I’m not sure where you are in your Walk with Jesus, but I can assure you that God will make it so there is No One around to help you but Him. And there is nothing that you can do, but wait with patience, in Joy knowing that He has sent you the help that you need.

Have you gotten past the stage where you still fuss, cry, have a fit because you know all this and it still frustrates you that He will not answer you?

If so, you are fine. Hopefully you will allow yourself to mature through this stage and learn to wait with patience, praising Him with the Joy that He has given to you.

If you are still hit by panic attacks when you are facing life issues that you cannot control-and you keep looking till you do find someone to help you—you are hindering your maturity from growing in His Love.

There are more times than not, where God allows us to be ‘lowered into the lion’s den’ before He reveals His power and plan. He uses all outward obstacles to directly uncover in us all the inward obstacles that His Holy Spirit needs to clean out. He is Always ready to work in us the solution we need to see and take.

Are you paying attention to His teaching?

He Gets our attention and He holds our attention.

He is already in the midst of the problem—waiting for us to let go of the situation and grab on to His hand—as He will lead us through by our faith.

He sits to watch if we will keep our focus on Him after He has claimed the waters and the crisis has passed.

Will He still have your attention?

Daniel did not forget Who saved and exalted him after God brought him through the hungry night. He kept right on living for God.

I encourage you not to get up from the table-filling your belly and forget Who put the food there for you to eat. Don’t forget Who prepared the food for you to eat. And is there anyone cleaning up after you? Don’t forget Who fed you now that you are full and your flesh is not calling to be fed anymore.

Remember, there is always tomorrow, and hunger will always come back for the new day.

Stay connected with our Father; strengthen your relationship with Him. The Lord spoke through a good sister friend of mine this morning. She said “It’s one dot and another dot on the same plane—when you Connect the dots with a line and complete the connection – it is completing the relationship.”

. .
you God
Complete the line by connecting the dots and begin to sit in His presence daily to strengthen your relationship and your faith.

A lot of people take better care of their cars then they do their relationships with Jesus.

He gives us His peace and controls the lions in our life when we are being lowered into their den. To face them.

Draw Near to God And He Will draw near to you. For surely as soon as He delivers you from one thing, there is another den waiting for you to be thrown into.

Who Is Your Help?

Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.
Joshua 1:9
