Wig’s Word of God Today 8-5-2012
The New Self of peaceful persistent purpose.
You should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of Truth. Ephesians 4:22-24
Exodus 16:2-4, 12-15, Psalm 78, Ephesians 4:17, 20-24 & John 6:24-35
It’s hard to trust the LORD with everything you live for especially if you’re in the desert with a bunch of runaway people used to being satisfied by false rations of content and flavor. Many Americans feel this false ration of hope is being mascaraed as going “forward” in a bland taste of camouflaged sparkles of excess. Even when we become freed from the slavery of sin we sometimes think the life of righteousness as Commanded by God seems to boorish for the likes of many attempting instead to tightrope across God’s Decrees as some sort of “right” to live halfway in sin yet forgiven and halfway out.
It happened to the freed Israelites that Moses took out of bandage only to swagger, moan and complain God was abandoning them in the midst of complete chaos, famine and despair. Not only did He provide for them the Bread from Heaven but He provided the tender meat of angels in the quail he fluttered the ground with each day that would prove to them to cower before the Mighty LORD of all. The LORD will test us just as He tested their loyalty by expressing to Moses His Truth. “I propose to test them in this way to see whether they will follow My Law or not.” Exodus 16:4d
The LORD will satisfy our hunger by the Trust we place in His Truth. A hunger not only for nourishment of the body but the soul’s refreshing wind of holiness, happiness and hallowed consecration living the new “Way of Life created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of Truth.”
It seems frightening sometimes to “Let go and Let God” but the “new self” of accepting God’s Divine Word, Will and Wonder relates to every step of peaceful persistent purpose you live in your heart. The peace to do what’s right even in the midst of abrasive opposition. The persistent confidence to share Christ’s Salvation to complete strangers with care. The purpose of allowing as many souls as possible to know Christ’s Salvation by walking the Life of Christ in a renewed spirit of humility, health and honor. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to find our new self by living Your Word. We pray day nine of a Novena of prayers for Mesfin Zabrocki and Lucy Moreira to be at peace LORD. We pray for the intentions of Rick Maulini who I dedicate my poem to below. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!
Jesus Christ is my strength and that is a fact- In honor of Rick Maulini (GBU!)
Hebrews 11:1-3 to begin
What is faith to win?
Made by God’s love to grin
Exampled by Christ void of sin
How to trust God we can’t see?
Free Will guides us to be
Believers in Grace to agree
How His Truth set us free
Alone in prayer I felt
My secret place I eagerly dwelt
Surrender to Christ my life He dealt
A moment of faith making me melt
I asked God for direction
A reflection I felt in detection
Of Christ in strength of affection
Ashamed I needed correction
The moment of faith may not last
Commit to pray and surrender the past
Even in doubt in Him I can grasp
When I am weak I am strong in Him to gasp
Jesus Christ is my strength and that is a fact
