“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”

but you will have to go to God to get messages.”

Seems like you are “programmed” to complain? 

The Lord can re-program you (“while you wait” 🙂 ) if, IF, you will let Him. 

In fact, He would love to

And – – – (swallow), your friends will like you even more.

Their nets were all empty that night

Jesus appeared at daylight

“Cast on the other side”

Their nets were satisfied.

Christ always directs mankind right.

ON THIS DATE

John Wesley died 3/2/1791 at London.  He was born 6/17/1703, Epworth, England, 15th child of Samuel & Susanna Wesley.  More importantly, he was born again (BTW after already be a disciplined man & after serving as a missionary) 5/24/1738, while listening to Luther’s preface to the Epistle to the Romans.  He went on to revive (somewhat) the NT doctrine of heart holiness – a terrifically important message.

Few men (English or otherwise) have left a more meaningful mark on their age.  Between his writings: Plain Account of Christian Perfection, Explanatory Notes on the NT, Primitive Physick, his rigorous preaching “tours” & his organizational skills, he impressed many to follow Christ & (it is thought) the influence of his followers helped keep England from the bloody revolution just a few sea-miles away.

Allow an honest glance at this holy – yet still human man.  He needed a haircut.  He did not do well in choosing a wife.  He felt too free to edit other’s hymns – including his brother’s (we know more theology from Charles than from John).  As seen, I do not have John on a pedestal nor should anyone.  Compare to him? How foolish to say. But he had his niche to fill (did it well) & you & I have our niche – May God help you AND me.
