EVERYTHING IS HIS
Amidst struggles and trials of heading out into Abba's great covering in our tiny, lil groovy old RV comes a NO DUH revelation :-P
So far we have not gotten far but really only back to where we came from. Yet the trials have been constant. Yet of course the blessings come daily. Yet this week I let myself stress...what if this issue with the RV, that so far has not been fixed by the simple changing of a pcv valve, or fixing a vacuum leak by my son and me (right Gale?;-) )..what if it is really a major issue. What if my only car/home quits and I have no money to cover the repair....? I actually asked myself is my faith strong enough for this fulltime RV life as a single mom? Oh how wonderful that HE is ever faithful and even when my faith to get through the day wavers, HE is faithful, He holds me up, He teaches me, He provides, He comes through. What if the RV needs major work...is it mine...is anything...?No! all I have, all I am is HIS...His to do what He wills..His will not my own..so thus the journey continues in His perfect provision..a blessed place to park.."home is where you park it :-)" and wonderful fellowship..such a joy. Of course He will provide and in the process we learn to be completely dependant upon Him for all our provisions, content whether hungry, or full. Whether in a building/RV or under His beautiful creation...ALL is His...not my own..Toda Raba Abba!
1 The Mighty One, God the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof 2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty God hath shined. 3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him 4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. 5 Gather my saints together unto me those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. 6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God. 8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me 9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds. 10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11 I know all the birds of the mountains and the wild beasts of the field are mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? 14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me 16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 these things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. 22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver 23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
