Wig’s Word of God Today 7-3-2011
For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13
I give praise to You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Matthew 11:25
Zechariah 9:9-10, Psalm 145, Romans 8:9, 11-13 & Matthew 11:25-30
I think it goes without saying that our world today lives in the flesh diluting the Spirit in every facet of society weakening the Church in followers and believers. Sometimes I wonder if the world will ever be able to return to a world that fears the LORD and the consequences of living a life of sin and self. I ran across a friend the other day that was obviously frightened by something in his life and after some conversation I learned he was struggling with making decisions about a relationship he had just ended. He had fallen for the weakness of the flesh and mixed that with wrong decisions.
What occurred to me was that he made decisions based on the flesh and not the Spirit. All of us are called to make decisions every day about life and they must be driven by the LORD’s Word to habitually overcome the temptation of the flesh mingled with responsibilities to live a life in faith, hope and love. As Jesus reminds us today, God will reveal all to the childlike who follow directions with the smile of an Angel. You know, how a child will follow you just by leading with happiness and joy? Well God’s Word is our happiness and His Truth is our joy that we as adults must learn to follow as a child will follow with confidence and trust.
So we ask in prayer: My LORD and my God, we pray today to always remain childlike in our following of Your Word to live in faith, hope and love gaining harmony for humanity. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Like a Child
Like a child you must follow
Like a child you must see
Like a child you must acknowledge
Like a child you must be
Like a child yearning for Heaven
Like a child who is in need
Like a child given honey
Like a child learning to read
Like a child He will comfort you
Like a child He will agree
Like a child He will show you
Like a child He will set you free
