And Jacob said, O GOD of my father Abraham, and GOD of my father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee: I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the Truth, which Thou hast shewed unto Thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands. Deliver me, I pray Thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children. And Thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. (Gen 32:9-12)
We are to trust GOD, and turn to Him for answers, even to praying His Word back to Him as we properly claim that which applies to us of His promises. Then we are to take action according to His Word. He will never tell us anything in our prayers that violates what He has written in His Word. And like the Bereans we are to check to see if what we are hearing is from GOD. Once confirmed, we obey and GOD is glorified in His Word, His ways, and His will.
One command that does not need verifying, for we have already received it from the Scriptures, is the command to go and tell. And as we go, we are to minister to the hurting around us as GOD provides, disciple one another in the Word so that we grow in grace, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet. We minister to those in need so that they may see Christ in us, the hope of glory. We disciple one another as members of His Church and one family in Christ. We preach Christ and His finished and perfect work of Salvation on the Cross of Calvary that those who hear and believe may receive forgiveness of their sIn and eternal life by their faith in Him.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Turn away from your sIn and unrighteousness and trust what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. Just as He preserved and protected Jacob and his family, He has provided forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and is our Life. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life.
