To be like Jesus 129

Today

And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And he said unto them,

Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungered, he, and they that were with him? How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

And he said unto them,

The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Mark 2 v23-28 AKJV

Sometimes, no matter how much the desire is to follow the “letter of the law” we grow weary. It seems like the grasp on right keeps slipping away, and then comes the self consciousness, and then the “accuser of the brethren.

Realization of God being far greater than all that any man can control then begins to set in. Our relationship to him is given by him because of his love for all humanity. To continue to make great efforts in following after him is what our part is, and never to stop as we stumble. Gods way will prevail in us, by his strength and not of our own.

“In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” Isaiah 26 v1-4 AKJV

Lord, this day is yours. I have failed and fell short even of my own expectations, and I know of yours. Forgive us Lord, in our iniquities and restore the strength of your goings in us to where your ways prevail in us. Lord, again, this day is yours, you are the might God and we praise you in our humble way. Amen
