God Thinking LX - As You Get Closer 5

"I believe that God is calling you to practice living with what God has supplied and ordained for His children - And also God is calling you to practice living without those things that are not for you, those things that are not supplied by God , nor are they ordained for His children.

David speaks to us in Psalm 95 and God speaks to us through David in Psalm 95.  God knew that you and I would someday read Psalm 95.  In it is David’s response to being in the presence of God, but in it God speaks to us also.

Psalms 95:1-11
1.  O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
 2.  Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
 3.  For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 
 4.  In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
 5.  The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
 6.  O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
 7.  For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
 8.  Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
 9.  When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
 10.  Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
 11.  Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

God’s people do not always know God’s ways. 
There are many reasons why God’s people do not know God’s ways, but:
Lack of God’s urging is not one of them.         
Lack of God’s calling is not one of them.
Lack of God’s revelation is not one of them.
Lack of God’s constant directing is not one of them.
Lack of God’s Supernatural intervention is not one of them."
