Proverbs of a 39 yr old man

Without a leash. Many owners are petrified to try to train their dog without a leash. They fear the dog will become distracted and run away. But what great peace when the dog listens to commands and does what it’s masters says. The dog is close by watching the masters every step, going in stride and hearing for any command. As sheep of Gods pasture we must stay close to Christs presence both in body and spirit. In our thoughts we are led astray by our own devices. In our flesh we go places we should not go. We are not like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control. Many sorrows come to the wicked, but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the LORD. We are surrounded as we stay in the light and pasture of his presence in us and through us. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died more than that, who was raised to life is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? Imagine with me Jesus praying for us with his eyes closed in passionate prayer, knowing that we are prone to wander away from his presence. Yes, there before the Father, like a defense lawyer on our behalf he pleads our case. When He finishes interceding for us, he opens his eyes with joy still seeing his obedient sheep resting in his green pastures. All eyes still looking at him waiting where to go next and what steps to take. Oh how beautiful when the Holy Spirit tugs at the heart of the believer keeping them focused and present before Christ Jesus their LORD.

Meditate Rom. 8:36
