“But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.” (Psalm 73:28 NIV)
Now, where else have we heard, “As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord?” Joshua reminds those around him that they have a choice and if they chose evil and not to obey God, they could, but he chose to serve The Lord.
Good choice for all who love the Lord and want to stay in position to receive all of His many benefits. What are they? His love and mercy begin the story. He loved us enough to come down from heaven to save us from ourselves, even when we didn’t deserve it–having mercy upon us.
We healed by His stripes–received on the cross.
We are delivered from being tempted to do evil when we function with the mind of Christ.
All of our needs are met through Him who loves us.
We are more than conquerors because of His great love for us.
We can do all things well through Him who gives us the strength and courage to do so.
We know that no one weapon formed against shall ever prosper–Satan’s plans are null and void–because of God’s hand of protection around us.
He hears us when we call upon Him and never leaves us alone.
When friends and family forsake us–we can look to Him who is our help.
All of our help, comes from the Lord.
We have been provided the means–through receiving His wisdom–to amass wealth and prosper as our soul prospers so we may help others.
There is no body like The Lord in all the earth who sees our need and responds.
There is no body like Jesus to will uphold us, protect us, strengthen us, love us, forgive us, and give us favor with men and women in every station of life.
There is no body who loves us enough to speak to us in the midnight hour to encourage our hearts, bring back to our remembrance all we have been taught and show us things to come–like Holy Spirit.
We are blessed beyond measure and our imagination because His spirit dwells in us and we hear Him when He speaks!
As for me–I choose to serve our living God and I will tell of His goodness at all times and at all times, He will demonstrate His goodness through me! I WILL TELL IT UNTIL I CAN SPEAK NO MORE!
Glory Hallelujah to our God–our Father, our Savior and Comforter!
