An interesting and blessed activity is to look for silver linings. It lightens stress, it gives refocus and it’s cool to find treasured outcomes even among the rubble of life. A silver lining is often in the eye of the beholder, but if it causes one to look for God’s hand in healing and helping, then that’s a GOLDEN core to live life. Silver linings, when filled with gold are God Fillings.
WHAT IS THE SILVER LINING for people trying to find where the bible helps them with their cause? The people actually have to dig thru scriptures and hearts and reasoning and how they interpret what God says. THEY HAVE TO FIND FAITH TO FOLLOW.
In silver linings, MOST IMPORTANTLY, it is God doing the Gold Filling that will lead each person to a firm foundation. Like a gold filling in a tooth, one gets structural support to chew on the sustenance of life, finding His Word to be the Truth. Like a gold rush, miners for Truth will mentally pan out between the silt and the nuggets, this takes time. (And beware the devil has populated our roads with fool’s gold in every way.)… So, in all, don’t follow the yellow brick road, choose the Gold one.
So, for personal rights people have much debate about all that, always did. So hard-line decisions and directives increasingly are clogged with so much static that people will HAVE to mine the Truth. And that’s what I pray people do, look deep at their convictions WITH God’s Help. There are no faith loopholes because Faith is a Net, woven for working and catching you, wrapping you tight to understand. If your faith is incomplete and unwoven, look for the Lord who built the best net. Faith exemptions require Faith Following, that’s what I pray is the God Gold Filling here. Trust builds our Faith-based Trust Fund.
I can see the future time, reading ahead in the book of Revelation, that people are going to be forced to choose God over the anti-Christ. If we don’t follow Him now, we are going to be put into a position where it will cost us our physical life to choose Him. So, it is best to follow now – surrender to His Will for you. Stand Strong for your convictions.
In following the crown vs following your heart vs following your head, in ALL things it is best to FOLLOW THE LORD. Don’t follow the crowd but HIS Crown – and as His thorns dug deep in mockery for a king, look for the Golden Crown of Jesus as Lord to illuminate the Way, our way to Him. He will reward us one day in Heaven with Golden Crowns, let us not preserve our Gold but PERSEVERE our fireY-trials to purify His Gold within us. And everything in us that is impure, Lord, please wash us thru the purification of Jesus’s Living Water.
Let us pray for those plowing thru religious reasonings (in all matters). Let us pray that their own plowing plants their own seeds of Faith and sprouts Spiritual Surrender to the Lord.
We all need to surrender and BE.
Amen and Amazing Lord, Lead us all to You.
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith…”
DON’T BE LUKEWARM
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16
KEEP YOUR PROMISES
And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded. If a man vow a vow unto the Lord, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth. NUMBERS 30:1-2
Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead, Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make go through the water. Numbers 31:22-23
So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 3:3-8
