Jump Off The Wheel

Oh the joy of all the gifts our Almighty Father has given us.  Many praises unto Him and our Most Holy Lord Jesus Christ!  Seek some time of quietness…just your Lord and you!  It is a most beautiful joy.  I know this society is a liken to ‘hamsters on a wheel’.  Well, jump “off the wheel” and get alone with God.  True refreshment will fill every part of your being.  This is my prayer for you today!

Zephaniah 1: 7 ” Be silent in the presence of the Lord God; For the day of the Lord is at hand…”

Psalm 37:7 ” Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!”

Psalm 77: 1-11 ” I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and he will hear me.  In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord; in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying; my soul refuses to be comforted.  When I remember God, I moan; when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah   You hold my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.  I consider the days of old, the years long ago.  I said,”Let me remember my song in the night; let me meditate in my heart.”  Then my spirit made a diligent search:  “Will the Lord spurn forever, and never again be favorable? Has his steadfast love forever ceased? Are his promises at an end for all time? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah   Then I said, “I will appeal to this, to the years of the right hand of the Most High.” I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your wonders of old.

“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labor in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. . . . Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. . . .”
Charles H. Spurgeon

There is great peace and joy in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. I am blessed to serve our Heavenly Father through Him. Everyday is a new day to share the the glorious Gospel message of grace and forgiveness; the blessings of hope; the Father God's eternal promises; and the importance of living daily in the will of God according to the Scriptures, especially now with the world in chaos and uncertainty. My life before I asked God to forgive me of all my sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and I repented (turned away from it); was one of utter selfishness in all aspects of my life. I partied, I lived for ME and only me! Now, I live for Him, with great joy daily. I want to share the Gospel, encourage other sisters/brothers in Christ through prayer and do as He leads by the faith He's given through His abundant grace!

  1. Church is great and provides a place where we can use out spiritual gifts for the benefit of the whole, where we can encourage and help one another, where we can meet together in the Lord’s own appointed way, where we can worship and praise as one, where we can reach out to the community, and more.

    But my times of closeness with Lord, of true, uninterrupted praise, of real communication, is when I am alone – alone with my loving Father. What joy! What fellowship, without distractions.

  2. Love this post! And with the very busy past few weeks (and weeks ahead of me) I really need to be reminded to “jump off the wheel” from time to time and get renewed and refreshed to continue on strong with God in what He’s called me to do. Thank you for this. Be blessed!

  3. Amen! Of late, it is my earnest desire to take much more time, to drink from the fountain of Living Water, to drink from that Fountain which shall never run dry! Praise the Lord! Wonderful post! God bless you!
