Wig’s Word of God Today 9-28-2011
No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God. Luke 9:62
Nehemiah 2:1-8, Psalm 137 & Luke 9:57-62
There is a time in everyone’s life that we look at what God made in us and say, “LORD thank you for making me the way I am” or “LORD why couldn’t I have been made to look like so and so.” I believe in my heart that the LORD is upset that you don’t accept how you are or what you’re made to accomplish for Him as acceptance of His Providential Will. Too many of young people today look up to complete strangers instead of their own family of friends. I am reminded of a friend’s talk about his life when he was growing up. He was an early teen looking for things to do when a friend invited him to hear an Olympic star speak about his life and his success as an Olympic runner. He told the group of children if you believe what a person said when you made a mistake in a comment like, “you’ll never amount to anything,” then you’re not thinking for yourself.
This friend heard this man talk about goals, God and looking up to people you know and not complete strangers who you have no idea how they are or how they act. Just because a person is a sports star or in the movies doesn’t mean they are good role models. Someone once said, “you are what you eat and live but your past doesn’t dictate your future;” you do. I have talked before about living a life of sin and selfishness and LORD knows I’ve made a lot of mistakes. But I am reminded how bright my future is with Christ’s Light illuminating my life because His Word teaches us we can’t look back and be fit for the Kingdom of Heaven, no we must look forward and live His Will for the Glory of God.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God we pray today we always look to the future of Your Kingdom living Your Word for peace of mind. We pray for the NJ/Philly Emmaus Team as they prepare for their Emmaus Weekend Retreat. Men of God in New Jersey, my prayers are with you now and forever. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray all of this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Christ’s Love Eternally Bore It- Luke 9:57-62
Many attested to His grace
Following to end earth’s mistakes
Nothing to hide or to save
Just His Truth to life’s elate
Follow Me was His reply
Not resting but living to die
For the sins of all the world
Shouldering the pains of your lie
Hold my plow not looking back
The Truth must go forward
The dead bury the dead
Christ’s love eternally bore it
