It being Saturday, I thought I would sleep in. The Lord, however, had other plans! But, when I realized at 4:30 am that I indeed had some energy ~ more then i expected, I realized let's get this show on the road! Just like someone who is wise, let's get to the nitty gritty first.
“Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.” Hebrews 10:35-36 NASB
Amazing! Many Christians think that having confidence should be a "sin" of self focus, but there it is. Written ~ the breathed word of God wrapped up there in Hebrews! Confidence in your faith, doing what is right, and watching and waiting for His lead, will assure you that your confidence will stay within the Lord, rather then yourself. Having confidence in yourself is not what God is speaking of here. He is wanting you to go forth with confidence in your CHOICE to follow HIM.. for that in itself is a GREAT reward!!
The next line of business for me on a Saturday, is to sit and enjoy my coffee! YUM! Then it's time to ponder the day ahead. There are some things that I need to accomplish today, before I can relax and allow this body to rest and recover, and be rejuvenated for the week ahead.
