THAT TENDER VOICE - "Very quietly I speak. Listen to My Voice. Never heed the voices of the world-only the tender Divine Voice. Listen and you will never be disappointed. Listen and anxious thoughts and tired nerves will become rested. The Voice Divine - not so much in strength as in tenderness. Not so much in power as in restfulness. But the tenderness and the restfulness will heal your scars and make you strong, and then it must be your task to let all your power be My Power. Man's little power is as clay beside the granite rock of My Power. You are My great care. Never feel at the mercy of the world. My angels guard you day and night and nothing can harm you. You would indeed thank Me if you knew the darts of fret and evil they turn from you. Thank Me indeed for dangers unknown - unseen - but averted."
HOW MEN SEE ME - "I came to help a world. And according to the varying needs of each so does each man see Me. It is not necessary that you see Me as others see Me - the world, even the Church, My disciples, My followers, but it is necessary that you see Me, each of you, as supplying all that you personally need. The weak need My Strength. The strong need My Tenderness. The tempted and fallen need My Salvation. The righteous need My pity for sinners. The lonely need a Friend. The fighters need a Leader. No man could be all these to men - only a God could be. In each of these relations of Mine to man you must see the God. The God-Friend, the God-Leader, the God-Savior." Happy Father's Day weekend to all the dad's out there!! "Blessings" to all our bible study families, thanks for sharing God's Word together.
Proverbs 27:6 - "Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Correction given in love by a friend is better than insincere acts of affection.
COMPANIONSHIP - "The way of the soul's transformation is the Way of Divine Companionship. Not so much the asking Me to make you this or that but the living with Me, thinking of Me, talking to Me-thus you grow like Me. Love Me. Rest in Me. Joy in Me."
Psalm 37:39,40: "But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him." 'salvation' The principal issue here is sanctification - the daily deliverance of God's people from temptation and evil. 'they trust' The psalm concludes with the righteous trusting God, like chicks running to the wings of their mother.
