Whatever human tries to do, it is inspired by nature, created by God.  We don’t create or start anything new, our ideas are from God.

Think flying.  Where do you think that had come from?  Birds.  Yes, who had created the birds?

Ever seen a flick of inflight birds?  I see them today, and they look awfully alike to the wonder fireworks try to depict. 

The next time I praise human hands, let me look to my Creator.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
Galatians 5:16‭-‬17 KJV

This is verse of the today, and it’s caught my attention, as it reinforces today’s message at church.  If we give in to our fleshly desire, we grieve the Holy Spirit.  And when we live in the flesh, we cannot be in the spirit; because God hates sin.  So resist temptation if I want to live for God and as God’s people.

Help me do that, Lord, and may the glory be yours only. Amen

Who’s “the beloved of the Lord”?  That’s everyone, regardless of what we’ve done, who we are; God is perfect – he doesn’t judge us like the world does, he accepts us for who we are, he doesn’t value us based on what we do, or don’t do.  

What are we, the beloved of the Lord, invited to do?  To “rest secure in Him”.  We pray and ask for security we know of – the high paying job, the home with a view, a uni degree, safe travel – but He offers more than the simplistic security, He offers us REST.  We are constantly on the run/move; feeling guilty even when we stop to take a breather.  So busy that we don’t stop to hear Him, connect with Him or thank Him.
 
The verse tells us another reason we can rest in Him, because He shields us ALL DAY LONG – not just for a minute, not only for a season; but for a long-long time.  He’s here to stay.  We can rest between His shoulders, sit tall, not afraid of falling off; the strong shoulders of the Lord, carrying us through and shielding us from dangers.
 
Thank you Lord…. Let us renew our commitment to TRUST in You, because you are the one who secures us and shields us; most of all, You had loved us first before we knew You.  Amen.
