Zechariah 13:9 gwt

black-flaming-paperWe should not be surprised by refining fires and tests.
If we are to be God’s people we must be made pure and strong.
When we call from the fire He will answer.

Do you know the joy of being one of His people?
Do you understand there will be refining and testing?

Zechariah 4:10 nlt

Věžnice,_small_chapel

Just as the Lord rejoiced to see the rebuilding of the Temple begin,
He is delighted to see us begin our journey, fresh and new everyday.

Do you feel like your small steps do not merit celebration?
Why would you depreciate something that God rejoices to see?

Blessings this day of grace,

Zechariah 8:16 esv

gate

The Lord is not asking us to please do these things.
He is telling us to do them.
If we do as He says we have peace where we live.

Do you think the Lord is giving suggestions in His Word?
Do you do what He says, even when you don’t want to,  
because He has said it is to be done?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia
