One night the LORD spoke to Paul in a vision, ‘Be fearless; speak out and do not keep silence.’ Acts 18:9

 

He had his hair cut off, because of a vow he had made. Acts 18:18c

 

Your hearts will be full of Joy, and that Joy no one shall take from you. John 16:22d

 

Acts 18:9-18, Psalm 47 & John 16:20-23

 

How are you defining fearless when searching to live according to God’s Designed Will? Does the “Fear of God” grip your chest when God’s designed Will matches your every thought, every action and every deed? Are you willing to give everything you have for the Will of God to be adhered to in your life? Surrender is a hard thing. We always want something God doesn’t want for us. Taking these steps of God’s Plan for you takes gumption- an intentional “vow” to God’s occupation of your very soul.

 

Paul took it in Cenchreae when he cut his hair off. He had enough gumption to continue as God instructs him to “be fearless; speak out and do not keep silence” when sharing the Good News of God’s Designed Plan for humanity. I saw the fearless look of God’s love recently when a woman responded to me saying “God Bless you.” She stopped and her eyes got big fearlessly delving her hands towards me “oh yes LORD, thank you for the blessing.”

 

It takes a lot of gumption to respond to someone’s blessing when reaching out to be thankful for prayerfully embracing God’s Joy in a stranger’s need in their affirmation of God’s Truth. She purposely stopped what she was doing and enjoined us for prayer holding hands with me and my wife. Her intentions were written down and will be placed in the prayer box of our home where many of your intentions lie now. I feel this fear of God wanting nothing more than to share His Joy with anyone, anytime and anywhere. Are you fearless for God’s Joy?

 

Dear LORD, we pray to be fearless seeking the Joy You share with our soul. We pray for my daughter to have a perfect wedding this weekend. We pray for all travelers and the needs of the people we meet. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

He made a vow to surrender to God’s TruthActs 18:9-18

 

As Paul preached in Conrinth

The LORD envisioned a trip

Speak out my Truth be silent no more

I am with you as you preach to every door

 

Harm will not come as I protect your very tongue

Many of the city are my servants who will hurriedly come

Protecting your speaking of Me to those who shun

The Word of God you teach in faith they are stunned

 

Jews rose up tired of his lip

Paul was brought to defend his quip

Gallio ruled no reason to hear titles and rules

He chose not to judge such matters of the Jews

 

They beat one poor guy half to death

A Synagogue official they quickly fetched

In full view of the Tribunal affair

Gallio showed he truly didn’t care

 

Paul remained but one day had to go

Saying farewell he sailed to Syria’s show

He made a vow to surrender to God’s Eternal Truth

Cutting his hair living a commitment of living proof

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
