God had been reminding me about Himself, that is who He is, and that He is trustworthy.  I thought I would share this below, recent journal entry.  I hope it blesses you!

God is in Control – Trust God, Follow Him

“Peter … said to Jesus, ‘But Lord, what about this man?’   Jesus said to him, ‘… what is that to you?  You follow Me'” – John 21:21-22

“My eyes are on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me…” – Psalm 101:6

“Then the angel showed me the river of life rising from the throne of God and the lamb, and flowing crystal-clear.  Down the middle of the city street, on either bank of the river were the trees of life, which bear twelve crops of fruit in a year, one in each month, and the leaves of which are cure for the nations.  The curse of destruction will be abolished.”   – Revelations 22:1-3

Heaven, River of Life, Trees of Life, Revelations 22, Revelations 22:1-3

  • River of life is rising from the throne – Life originates from God
  • The water is crystal-clear, that is absolutely no imperfections
  • Abundant crops – twelve a year!  Signifying God’s abundance!
  • Curse abolished – no destruction, satan has been destroyed
  • Tree of life – instead of being associated with the first sin, it is now the cure for all nations

Hymn – Open My Eyes that I May See – Clara Scott

Open my eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of the truth you have for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
that will unclasp and set me free.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, My God, your will to see.
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit Divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth you send me clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear,
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, your will to see.
Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit Divine!

Open my mouth and let me bear
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with your children thus to share.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, your will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit Divine!

(Judgement on Judah)

“And in that day the Lord God of hosts called for weeping and for mourning, for baldness and for girding with sack cloth.  But instead, joy and gladness, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating meat and drinking wine: ‘let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.'” – Isaiah 22:12-13

Lord, I ask that You open my eyes, as you did John’s in his writing of Revelations.  May I not look at others to judge or to prevent your Your will but seek Your will for me!  May I be sad and repent when I grieve You.  May I celebrate when You are happy.  May my life be a tree of life, supplied and nurtured by You, and a blessing to all that see, taste and are touched by it.  May I be silent and humble before You.  May I be ready to hear You and to act in Your name.  May I be a joy to You.  May Your eyes ever be on me.

In Jesus’ very precious name.  Amen
