word, truly you are my disciples, and you shall know the truth and
the truth shall make you Free." John 8:31

your burden upon he Lord, and He will sustain you." (Psalms
used by people who go fishing at the riverside. They take their
fishing rod with them that has a long line on a reel. When they are
ready to catch a fish, They take a firm hold of the handle of the
rod, they release the reel from a locked position and they fling the
rod (in their hand of-course) over from behind them (position) to
over in front of them, and the line goes into the water. The object
of this exercise is to cast the weight on the end of the line as far
as they can from them into the water.
there is something else to keep in mind here. The 'Riverside is a
speaking of the Presence
of The Lord.
When we decide to “Cast our Cares on The Lord” (onto God) we do
this best in the Presence of God. When we are at
rest with Him
(in His Presence) we find the confidence
to let go
of our problems – whatever is concerning us. Just like the person
fishing, we need to cast the line as far as we can – without
restraint, to get the best results. Some of us use a short line, so
to speak, when we give our concerns to God. For us, without
restraint means without reservation...... to know that He will take
care of us.....He can handle it.
shoulders are bigger than ours. We don't have to wear a frown.
The word confessing here means
assenting to; saying the same thing as. It is translated in the New
Testament as both confession and profession (Rom 10:9 10; 1Tim 6:12
13; Heb 3:1; 4:14;10:23). When we confess or profess something we
proclaim it to be true; we are assenting to its truth. Confessing
God's word means saying the same thing as God's word, the Bible,
says. Holding fast our confession means continuously saying the same
things as God's word says.
In scripture, Joshua did, David did and
Jesus did. The word 'meditate' in Josh 1 actually means to say to
yourself verbally in the original Hebrew.......David always
practiced the principle of confession and Jesus confessed scriptures
many times in the new testament. So there is plenty encouragement for
us to do the same. And I pray God's richest blessings for you "this
is my God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect" (I
just heard these words in my spirit) A song says "yes God is
Good, He is Good to me".
Looking not to the things that are seen
but those things that are unseen – stay with the Good Report in His
Word and keep confessing it – don’t leave His Words dormant but
give them a voice…… Rejoicing daily, for this is the language of
Heaven. We need to give Praise to Rejoice and it starts with
vocalizing His Words…..an Act of our Will. Feelings are fickle and
no indication of what Jesus’ plans are for us – so let Faith
Reign and keep it Simple.
Do not be worried, uneasy, disturbed,
upset, anxious or disconcerted
be calm and at peace, assured and
restful. To be restored to a place of trust.
Protection from The Lord
The Lord is faithful.
He will establish you and guard you against the evil
one. May the
Lord direct your hearts to the Love of God and to the Steadfastness of Christ.........The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be
with you all. (2 Thess 3)
These verses speak of The Lord as being Faithful to establish and guard us as we allow Him to direct our hearts to
The Love of God
Steadfastness of Christ
The closer we stay to the Father's Love and the Finished Work of he Cross - a protective covering is provided for us.
This does not mean the total absence of pressures, whatever, because we are living in stressful times, but He will fortify
our spirit so things impact us less - especially when we Rejoice and Praise Him!
We have another promise in Psalm 84 "The LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor...... Surely His Salvation is near those who fear Him." Some translations say "Trust in Him" Original Greek and Hebrew
words Scriptures are written in have so much richer meanings usually than English - that's why we will see two or three different words used in different translations.
Confidence in God
is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose trust the LORD is. For
he shall be as a tree planted
by the waters, who spreads out its
roots by the river, he/she shall cease from yielding fruit”. Jeremiah
is about a person, it's always about a person – not a theory or a
technique. So build your confidence around the Person of God. Spend
time in His Presence. This is the way we come to know Him. Acquaint
yourself with Scriptures that speak of His Goodness, His Grace and
of us need a clear picture of Him – situations and circumstances
may have clouded our Image of Him. Even lots of sermons can do that.
Especially if they don't portray Him well. Don't rely on someone's
impression of Him, press in to know Him and you will be GLAD YOU DID!
TO KNOW ME, THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE NEED. SEEK MY DIRECTION AND
ME. FOR THERE I WILL LEAD YOU TO PASTURES GREEN
THE RIVER OF LIFE DOES FREELY FLOW”
song He gave me years ago)
