Wisdom Wednesday

Deut 33.12

Blessings today and thanks for stopping in!
Yesterday’s Scripture in Deuteronomy 33:12 so blessed my soul that it is the focus of Wisdom Wednesday! You see, the Lord has reminded me to cast every burden and rest secure in Him. His grace is sufficient for every need. From yesterday:

“About Benjamin he [Moses] said: “Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders.” What a beautiful picture, resting between the shoulders of God as He hides and shields us from the attack of our enemies. It is here that we find sweet peace, rest, and satisfaction. Our every care cast on Him as we rest in Him. This should be the place of our desire and we should  want to dwell there not just an hour or a day, but continuously all the days of our lives, no matter the season.

The Word of God and Charles Spurgeon quotes that helps me “fix” my eyes on Jesus:

  1. “Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of.”

  2. “Nothing reflects so much honor on a workman as a trial of his work and its endurance of it. So it is with God. It honors Him when His saints preserve their integrity.”

    No matter our darkness

  3. “What an encouraging thought that Jesus – our beloved Husband – can find comfort in our lowly feeble gifts! Can this be, for it seems far too good to be true? May we then be willing to endure trials or even death itself if through these hardships we are assisted in bringing gladness to Immanuel’s heart.”

  4. “In spiritual things, it is God who performs all things for you. Rest in Him, then.”

  5. “As sure as God puts His children in the furnace He will be in the furnace with them.”

  6. “Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to the tremendous difficulties.”

    Deut 33.27
  7. “Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength.”

  8. “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

  9. “Fiery trials make golden Christians.”

    Deut strong

  10. So surely as the stars are fashioned by His hands, and their orbits fixed by Him, so surely are our trials allotted to us: He has ordained their season and their place, their intensity and the effect they shall have upon us.

  11. When a tear is wept by you, think not your Father does not behold; for, “Like as a father pities his children so the Lord pities them that fear Him.” Your sigh is able to move the heart of Jehovah; your whisper can incline His ear unto you; your prayer can stay His hands; your faith can move His arm. Oh! think not that God sits on high in an eternal slumber, taking no account of you.

    deut 33.12d

  12. You may readily judge whether you are a child of God or a hypocrite by seeing in what direction your soul turns in seasons of severe trial. The hypocrite flies to the world and finds a sort of comfort there. But the child of God runs to his Father and expects consolation only from the Lord’s hand.

  13. The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.

  14. Providence is wonderfully intricate. Ah! You want always to see through Providence, do you not? You never will, I assure you. You have not eyes good enough. You want to see what good that affliction was to you; you must believe it. You want to see how it can bring good to the soul; you may be enabled in a little time; but you cannot see it now; you must believe it. Honor God by trusting Him.

    Deut 22.12
  15. The furnace of affliction is a good place for you, Christian; it benefits you; it helps you to become more like Christ, and it is fitting you for heaven.
