GOD PAUSE: I hope you're enjoying this beautiful day that the Lord has for you. Always keep in mind that He's right there beside you, each step of the way. In my Bible reading a little bit ago, I read Jesus' words found in Luke 12:56. He says “You are such experts at forecasting the weather, but you are totally unwilling to understand the spiritual significance of the time you're living in.” It reminds me of what God says about some of the tribe of Issachar that understand the times and then how to live accordingly. Dear Papa, my friend and I want to live wisely in this day and age. Taking each step purposefully. Help us to see the rich harvest fields all around us ---- people ready, ripe to know you. And may we live in the last days outpouring of your Spirit to empower us. Amen and amen.
