Wig’s Word of God Today 6-28-2012
What is your string reminder for God?
Everyone who listens to these Words of Mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on Rock.”Matthew 7:24
Second Kings 24:8-17, Psalm 79 & Matthew 7:21-29
How do you know when you are acting on the Word of God? Can you prepare your day in His Truth to accomplish the Will of God in all things by a certainty in the thoughts, actions and deeds of every step you will take to be one in Words you read aloud to yourself every morning, noon and night? I remember as a kid I used to tie a string to my finger to remind me to accomplish this or that but I never spent time in God’s Word to read, learn or act on anything but my own selfish desires.
This past weekend I was standing around talking to a fellow veteran who heard me explain why I say, “I love You” to my wife whenever the numbers four, three or seven come up on a clock. It was 4:03 PM and I looked at him explaining the time, love, seven-in-heaven connection as I said aloud, “It’s 4:03 Toni, I love you.” Looking at my new Brother in Christ, John, I exclaimed, “It’s 4:03 John, I love you!”
I mention this because John gave me something before I left without realizing the meaning his gift would have in the coming days as I feel the spirit of two men I’m praying for resound in the pulse coming from the bracelet John imparted on me as a Christ-like memento of our Emmaus weekend together. It sort of feels like an adult type string wrapped around my wrist to remind of God’s Word, His Holy Spirit and His Son’s Redemption.
Without knowing it, John created a prayer reminder token I find hard to take off. I’ve prayed for them both, the veteran who made it for John, Colt, and John non-stop for his friendship in Christ’s Holy Name. Acting on God’s Word brings about faith, hope and love to live in His Joyful Purpose. There becomes a sensible feeling of Truth to eliminate the fear of death longing instead for the Sacred Embrace of Christ. Do you listen to the Word of God and act for His Purpose? What is your string reminder for God? Whose life can be changed by a bracelet?
Dear God, we pray today we act on Your Word as we remind ourselves to live for Your Truth. We pray today for my mom’s Joanne’s surgery be guided by Your Hand LORD. We pray for NC Emmaus Team- it’s 5:31 and I love you all. We pray for our friends, children and the unknown soul needing Your Truth. We pray for guidance for Your Glory LORD. We pray for Tom Stilley who I wrote then edited today’s poem below. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Christ’s Redemption of Prayer as Proofàin Tribute to Tom Stilley
How I start my thankful day
Communication of heart to say
God’s True love to proudly display
The Foundation of Prayer I eternally crave
Dad questioned his answered prayer
My strength in God I eagerly dare
My weekend guided my obvious scare
To Eulogize my dad in Christ’s fashion fair
Prayer is all the help I need
Loving the LORD my planted seed
Overwhelmed in prayer to eternally feed
Capable of faith void of greed
I opened my eyes to what prayer can do
The ultimate weapon I seek to use
Taking the burden from life to feel less abuse
Christ’s Redemption of Prayer as Proof
