Wig’s Word of God Today 6-29-2011
The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to His Heavenly Kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:18
For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Heavenly Father. Matthew 16-17d
Acts 12:1-11, Psalm 34, 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18 & Matthew 16: 13-19
I know in my heart and soul the fright of life can seem so overwhelming sometimes that we have nothing we can do but sit down and cry. You may even think God has abandoned you leaving you to wash your hands in your tears but He is abundantly a part of everything you are doing. He will rescue you from every evil threat, overwhelming situation of grief or the most impossible situation you may have seem to have gotten yourself into. Today in Acts, we learn of Peter’s angelic rescue from prison. Not only did his ankle chains fall off, his prison door open and he seemingly walked unnoticed by the four sets of guards, but God intentionally strengthened Peter’s conviction time and time again.
There will come a time in all our lives that we will experience God’s rescue by our love of His Word, by our prayer answered by our preaching of His Son’s Truth. It may come in times of you won’t understand. It may come in times when you think what is happening is wrong. It may come in times when you believe with all of your heart that there would be no way God would put you through such havoc or heartache. But these are exactly the times that God is teaching you something to live for His glory. You may never understand what it is but I promise you God’s favor rests on those who accept life’s hurdles with faith, humiliation and love. One day we will learn that God did not allow Peter to escape anymore, but allowed him to face his death with courage, respect and love by his life’s work of sharing the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
When Jesus asked in Matthew 16 who people said that he was and Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God,” Jesus knew that His Father had revealed this to him by his absolute surrender and following His Son becoming a Rock the church was built on. There comes a time in all of our lives when Jesus reveals to us his Truth to live each and every day for His Father’s glory. Everything around us becomes centered on living in Truth. We know that all our mistakes of our past are forgiven. We know that our past life should be forgotten. We know in our hearts that we have to live each and every moment of every day in complete communion with our love of loving Christ Jesus to live in Truth to accomplish the Will of the God. When you surrender to the love of Christ Jesus, there is no other way to live but in Truth.
So we ask in prayer, Heavenly Father we pray today that You will rescue us from every evil threat we ever encounter. We surrender to living in Truth for the glory of God and we accept each and everything we encounter as Your Will living in faith, charity and love. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
In You Revealed the Wind of Truth
Who am I to you?
Nothing but an excuse?
Or the life of a recluse?
Guiding you to choose?
I AM the Son of Man
All life rests in My hand
Choose to live by My command
Or die with sin from your own plan
I am revealed by my Father’s proof
In My life I gladly did live to choose
Living for His love will garnish something cool
In You revealed the wind of Truth
