|"Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.|
| Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life." Psalm 42:7-8|
Will you allow your heart to be stirred?

"And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;" Leviticus 10:10
Even in our humanness we understand the stark difference between good and bad. Shall we not also make the same distinction as to what is from The Lord God and what is of this world?
"Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it." Psalm 34:14
However, apart from Christ and His Holy Spirit, the lines are often blurred and the desires of the flesh are esteemed over His desires.
Holy or unholy, clean or unclean, good or bad, right or wrong, life or death, Christ or self... Pertains to all things. Do you have your discernment goggles on?

Yesterday I was putting a puzzle together with my kiddos. Just because I wanted pieces to fit, didn't mean it worked out. Kinda like faith, we trust God to see the bigger picture, not just the pieces before us.
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
Many people view faith almost the same as a genie in a bottle. Faith is trusting Jehovah to meet our needs; which doesn't necessarily line up with our wants.
If our hope is in Him, we will desire His Will above our own, His plan above ours and trust our needs will be met according to His purpose.
I trust The Lord in His leading & guiding that He will have His perfect way in this imperfect life. Are you living on genuine faith or that which you'd like it to be?
"(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)" 2 Corinthians 5:7

With this new beginning, will you journey with Him?
