Psa 84.10

“For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.

I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,

than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.”

 

“…The fuller of pride anyone is himself

the more impatient will he be at the smallest instances of it in other people.”

– Wm Law

 

The devil doesn’t want you content. He wants you to hear about a “do-dad” or “thing-a-ma-jig” you have to have. satan wants you to crave a non-food items to smoke, drink, inject into your body. The old serpent will temp you to watch a filthy film or a hollywood mis-representation, or a dumbing-down disney item. The devil does NOT want you to be happy with life, content to be yourself, easily satisfied. Tell him to go “jump in the lake” & with Christ as your helper, Glory in living a simple life centered in the Lord. – 9/20/20

 

“Never do anything to excel other people

but in order to please God…”

– Wm Law

 

When the tenor is living with his second wife (#1 still alive), when the lead is know for flashes of anger, when the baritone is sour when things don’t go his way, when the bass is proud of how low he can go & the piano player is less than a man, please don’t imagine you’re feeling God’s spirit as they sing. The guys may know how to sing/play, may be clapping, raising hands, saying “Amen” but the Holy Spirit does not bless carnal singers. Do not go see such, do not have them in your church, do not be deceived. * – 9/20/20

HIS HYMN

When we sing a chorus,

We’re likely to sing about us.

When we sing a Hymn,

We sing about Him.

God gives you 6 days to work the garden, wash the car, mow your yard – Use them, not His special Lord’s Day. Christ gives you 6 days to fill the car with gas, check out specials at the hardware or grocery shop – Be busy about your stuff on them, leave off such out of the Lord’s Day. “But – but, I’m so busy.” Truth-be-known probably too busy. Slow down, Friend. You do not HAVE to keep up this your run-away neighbor. Drop activities you’re doing which you don’t enjoy & in which your family is not involved. Savor life. -9/20/20

 

Humility & meekness are always

the gateway to God’s blessings.

Leonard Sankey

 

Eph 4.26

“Be ye angry & sin not:

let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”

 

If you are going to be angry make sure your anger is like Jesus had, “…He…looked round about on them with anger, *being grieved* for the hardness of their hearts…” Anger unmixed with grief is almost certainly carnal but we know Christ’s anger was not. satan will try to get you so upset with your family, your job situation, some political problem until you have a carnal anger. No carnal anger will be in heaven. (You ought to be glad about that.) And even more glad to know that the Holy Spirit will remove – as we die out to ourselves – all anger that’s related to satan & his putrid causes. – 9/20/20

 

Repentance implies a willingness to be known

& estimated according to one’s real character.

George               Shaw
