No Turning From It

“Only be strong and very courageous that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7

I read this as God saying the biggest challenge wouldn’t be the physical battles, but the inner battles to do as He said.

Oh Lord, we desire the strength and courage today to walk wherever total obedience to You takes us. And here’s a simple poem . . .

We Want To

Our obedience is born
out of love for You
and we have confidence in
Whom we trust too
Who gives us strength
to do what we should do
as we freely follow
simply because we want to.

Through Jesus

“For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:17

The law was needed . . .was necessary . . .we had to have it.

Thank You God, for fulfilling the law for us with the grace and truth of Jesus. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Colored In Truth

It’s there to do
in hard black and white
but my heart just fades
and slips away

until You color in
with the truth of Your love
and get my heart skipping
to the beat of Your grace.

Jesus Fulfills

“Then He said to them, ‘These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me’.” Luke 24:44

It’s always been about Jesus and it always will be.

Thank You, Jesus, for fulfilling all our desires and being our all in all. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Concerning Jesus

All throughout the Bible
You are spoken of

Yahweh, Prince of Peace
Jehovah, God of Love.

You were there in the beginning
before the earth was made

knowing everything that would happen
how much we would need saved.

This will be the last post from Luke. I tried to make it last through Easter . . .but just couldn’t. ha! So tomorrow I’m moving back to the Old Testament , Deuteronomy, and we’ll see what God has for us from there. Thank you so much for joining me and helping me! I appreciate all of you so much!
