“Thus saith the Lord to me; Make the bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck, ” Jeremiah 27 v2
The begining of knowledge is to respect the Lord, to understand that he is our creator and the creator of all things. Of course it is the choice of anyone whether or not to do so but by all laws and the nature of all laws our decisions on whether or not we do also come’s with results that many times determine the circumstances in which we live. God has no need to establish who he is because he is the “I am.” He gives us the word of direction at times to bring us to a better understanding of who he is, and that we can trust him with all of who we are.
In the book of Mathew he says, “come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Mathew 11: 28-30
God is the “I am” of all people. He is our refuge and our strength and if we learn of his ways and his statutes, we can find perfect peace in his plan for our lives, no matter who we are. I have made many mistakes, and am daily faced with decisions of my own and at times some that affect others. Lord, dear heavenly father, Lord let us put our faith and trust in you. Amen 12/5/2017
