Which way does the river run? Can you see its beginnings? Are you there when it empties into the sea? Is the life within sustained or will it perish before its destination? You have never questioned these things; yet enjoy the river’s edge. Consider your own existence. You have certain confidences regarding the similar flow of your life; but question so many other aspects. If you could place your life in the hands of your creator, knowing I would lead and guide it similarly, would you?
This is accomplished through an act of your soul (mind, will, emotions), your body and your spirit. Taking each part and relinquishing it to my guiding hand. One by one; step by step; seeking my will. Acknowledge that your desire is for your heavenly Father to be Lord of your life. It is then that the peace of a river’s flow will be yours. There are many ways that I will lead; you will be amazed. All will be confirmed in your spirit. There will be miraculous manifestations. Some minute; some overwhelming.
Try me said the Lord of hosts.
“You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?’ Then they that feared the Lord spoke often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His Name. And they shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him. Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not.”
Malachi 3: 14, 16-18
