MORNINGTIME 4130Rby Benjamin Munsell on October 28, 2022
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of Power, and of Love, and of a Sound Mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: BUT BE THOU PARTAKER OF THE AFFLICTIONS OF THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THE POWER OF GOD; Who hath Saved us, and Called us with an Holy Calling, not according to our works, but according TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, which was given us in Christ Jesus BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN, For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I Know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that WHICH I HAVE COMMITTED UNTO HIM against that day. 2 Timothy 1:7-9,12. You were designed by the Lord GOD Almighty Himself to do 2 things on this earth. First, you were designed to Love the Lord with all your Heart, Mind, Soul and Body. To do this by Faith, to accept this Command with no real understanding of what this even means, JUST BECAUSE God said so, will immediately get you JOY so good you can't even describe it adequately, and a PEACE so deep in you that It is even beyond UNDERSTANDING. Oh yes, you will also get an unshakable LOVE for the Lord and all that He has for you, that no one and no thing can shake it loose from you. That's all first. Secondly, (keeping in mind all these First things), you were designed to do a certain, exact and specific Life Work that ONLY YOU, in Christ, can accomplish. Don't know how to do this? HE WILL HELP YOU, GUIDE YOU AND DIRECT YOUR STEPS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. He will never leave you "hanging out there" all alone and unsure what's next. Even when YOU don't know, you'll know THAT HE KNOWS, and that will be all the Comfort you'll need to keep on keepin' on. He'll teach you an Obedience so strong that even pain and suffering won't deter you from your "appointed rounds". HIS LOVE for the lost, sick and dying THROUGH YOU will surpass all fear of what man may do to afflict or hurt you, AND YOU WILL ETERNALLY, FOREVER, Be Blessed.
