Wig’s Word of God Today 7-22-2011
Then God delivered all these commandments. Exodus 21:1
She turned around and saw Jesus there. John 20:14b
Exodus 20:1-17, Psalm 19 & John 20:1-18
The more I read the Bible, the more I realize I have a need to embrace every single Word to live fully what God intended His People to live by. Today in Exodus 21 Moses delivers the Ten Commandments yet the Bible actually holds 613 “dos and don’ts” of God’s Law throughout the entire Bible. I learned this yesterday while watching a show about a skateboarder who turned his life around to surrender all to Christ. The Laws of our LORD led him to reconcile with his divorced wife and lead a life of sharing Christ’s Truth. Yes, I have read the entire 613 Laws and I am excited to say I look forward to reading more of them each day to heighten my awareness of God’s Commands in my life.
Why was Mary Magdalene the only person given the First Sight Witness (FSW)? Not only was she the FSW but there seems to be a reason she was chosen by God as a woman to share the eye witness account of His Resurrection. Was it a chance meeting? If you believe in living the Will of God then you’d agree with me that Jesus talking to Mary Magdalene first was not a chance meeting but the fulfillment of His Will to share His Risen account with the others Disciples because of His Trust in her. In living the Will of God, we look to love our love of sharing His Truth and we will seek out those in need to accomplish God’s love for all humanity.
Yesterday, I felt this calling to live in His Will to help a homeless man I’ve seen several times in my area because he always walks with two dogs. The dogs looked like Chows and were literally lying at the front door of the post office requiring people to step over the dogs just to get in the door. I know they were just enjoying the rush of cold air as it left the building just as the owner said he does when he comes over to enjoy a little A/C as he waits for people to help him. As I approached this man looking to be in his 60’s, I learned he had a hearing problem making me speak loudly as I spoke to him but what struck me were his arms; they were covered in dog bites and were open and bleeding swarming in gnats.
I asked him his name, “Bill,” he answered. Please allow me to go buy you some lunch and some food for your dogs. Smiling he asked, “Where are you going to get that from?” “Not to worry” was my reply. “Stay put, I’ll be right back.” I left and got him a bite to eat and a bag of Gravy Train for Lady and Lucky his two dogs. As I walked up, the two dogs trotted over wagging their tales as I asked him, “where did your wounds come from on your arm?” “A gang of dogs,” he replied. “They were ganging up on Lady and Lucky and I had to fight them off.” Showing me his arm with a gaping wound covered in gnats he said, “One got em real good right here.” “It sure did,” I replied. “Will you let me go get some stuff to doctor you up? I’ll bring you some fresh clothes and a new tarp for your camp.” Nodding, I could see the tears began to roll off his cheeks looking at me with such soft brown eyes. “Yes sir. Thank you. I’ll be right here.”
I left and returned with anti bacterial soap, water, peroxide and Neosporin. I had a bag of clothes and some shoes and a few cans of Chef Boyardee. I must admit I see Christ’s smile when I help those less fortunate than I. As I pulled up, he saw me coming and smiled from ear to ear. I got out and had him wash his arms real good. “When’s the last time you had a shower?” I asked. He replied, “I can’t remember when.” About that same time, two police cars pulled up and of course they wanted the dogs to be leashed. I continued to doctor him up as the police officers spoke to me for a bit. I’ve never seen so much bubbling from peroxide on his arms as he allowed me to spray him.
As we finished, we prayed together as I lifted my arms above his head asking God to heal his arms and keep him safe. Turning to the officers I prayed for them with my hands held high. I could tell the police officers were very thankful for me helping him as he leashed his dogs to leave. I followed him to his camp site so I could drop off his new clothes and such. I’ll return today to clean him up some more. As I turned to leave, Bill waved smiling his toothless face saying, “God has blessed me today. Thank You.”
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today for the continued healing of Kelly Layfield. We also pray for the healing of Jennifer Corbo. We pray today for Bill the homeless man who I see Your Son’s Face when we embrace. Keep him safe for Your purpose LORD. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
God Rules a Soul from Dust
He gave thee
Laws to be
Follow them true
God will reward you
Life of love to find
Out of sight to shine
In reality of our mind
Grace from His Time
Commandments were just
Keep your mind from lust
Ashes you will return a must
God rules a soul from dust
