God Walks and Talks With His Own

Did you know that as you walk and talk with God on a daily basis, it will distinguish you from all others?  I found that out a long time ago.  I also found out that without applying faith to the still small inner Voice that occupied my consciousness, I was treading on sinking sand.

Let me explain.  In my early years of conversion to Jesus Christ and His righteousness, I carried into the mix a large suitcase filled with my own way of resolving problems, conflicts, ideas, people, pursuits, etc.  I struggled with the fact if I were putting a ‘Jesus’ label on my actions, why wasn’t anything working out for the good.  I even prayed to God and questioned His ‘responses’.  I was losing so many battles that one day I said…”Really, God!”

It was during that time of defeat (and perhaps my surrendering), that I was led by the Holy Spirit to read Proverbs 4:1-7.  There, it talks about wisdom…God’s Wisdom…not my own.  The verse that stood out for me and has since become my epithet was verse 7.  “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom; and with all thy getting get understanding.”

I thought I knew it all and all I needed was God’s stamp on my ‘indecisiveness’.  That was definitely the wrong ‘understanding’.  In another scripture, God describes how he will test His people to see whether or not they will follow His instructions and not their own.  “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘I will rain down bread from heaven for you.  The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day.  In this way I will test them and see whether they [understand and] will follow my instructions.’” Exodus 16:4

The word ‘bread’ in scripture is a reference not only to God’s nourishing provisions of food, but also for God’s providential expression of Truth…God’s Word given to us through the life of Jesus Christ.

As I said earlier, as we walk and talk with God on a daily basis, that is, feast on his daily bread, it will distinguish us from all others in God’s eyes.  I am now standing on solid ground.  Amen!
