ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,  Beloved of God,   John 3:16,  12:24-26,  17:20-26

   (Received today, on my computer.)

Today’s Scripture
“And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.”   (Deuteronomy 28:2, ESV)

Handfuls On Purpose
Our God is a rewarder of those who seek Him! When you keep God first place and do your best to honor Him, the Scripture says, “His blessings will chase you down and overtake you.” That means you will come into increase, promotion and good breaks that you didn’t necessarily deserve. That’s God rewarding you for walking in His ways. We see this principle in the Old Testament with Ruth. She was out in the fields following behind the workers and gathering up the leftover wheat that they missed. She was trying to take care of her mother-in-law, Naomi, but they were barely surviving. One day, the owner of the fields, Boaz, told the workers to leave handfuls of wheat on purpose for Ruth. Ruth came into blessings that were simply dropped at her feet. Every one of us can look back and see times where God has left us handfuls on purpose—something that we didn’t deserve or even ask for. We were just provided for unexpectedly. That’s a “handful on purpose.” I encourage you to always keep your expectancy up. Keep trusting God and obeying His voice because He is ready to bless you in unexpected ways today!

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I trust You as my Provider; You are the One who cares for me. I acknowledge You with my love and thank You for leaving me “handfuls on purpose” today! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

My Comments:
My thoughts go to Romans 8:32 where Paul writes: 
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?   And we have all heard the sage advice:  “Where GOD guides,  HE provides.” 

So 1st we need to know this: Matt.6: 7″But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.”  So faith is not heavy lifting.

2nd. we need to bone up is our faith,  Matt.17:20,  And Jesus said unto them, “…for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”    And so faith comes by ingesting the Word of God.  as per Rom. 10:17,  ” So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” And the basic key to having our needs met is faith as Jesus teaches us in Mark 11:23, ” For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
Of course James 4:2-3,  adds a bit of concern:   Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.   3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 

So as we grow in faith and start to clearly hear the voice of God we can pray for our needs and expect GOD to provide as they are according to HIS will.   This is found in 1 John 5:13-15,  13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

So my suggestion would be to get a copy of the King James New Testament narrated by Alexander Scorby and listen to it in your car,  cell phone,  CD player at home over and over and over again.  This will help put GOD’S word in your heart where it will do some good.  It is heart faith that changes things not just our head understanding.  It is by heart faith that you get saved, sealed, empowered and can walk in the glory of God.  It is all a matter of our growth in faith.  Our heavenly Father wants us to learn how HE put the universe together along with every thing that HE made including us.  So we find ourselves in a temporary time dimension for this purpose.

Yours in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><   (Past “Worth Considerings” may be found linked to our home page.)

Looks like the stairs will be going in next week to our barn loft for family and folks to be able to camp a bit and be dry and safe.  The stairs have been a bit tricky…
