The fire alarm has just been pulled… you have 60 seconds… what do you take?
Take this: He knows! Joshua 22:22
Some of the tribes of Israel were being questioned on their motives behind their building of an alter. The tribes in question in their defense exclaim in Joshua 22:22 The Mighty One, God, the LORD! He knows! God too knows the motives of our hearts. It shouldn’t matter what others think, only what God thinks and only He can see inside our hearts.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Heb. 4:13
Lest I get off track I pray that He will search me, …and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24
Let’s keep our focus not on those around us but on the One who knows us better than we know ourselves. Let’s trust the One who has protected us on our entire journey and Who has fought for us. -When we listen to Him we will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. (Prov. 1:33)
Lord, regardless of what others think, as for me and my house we will serve the You (Joshua 24:17).
I want my heart yielded to His, His plans, His desires, His will. HE KNOWS my fears, my shortcomings and yet takes me as I am to grow me into who He planned. Praise the One Who knows!!
59, 60. Go!
