“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21 KJV
“12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13 KJV
I have a precious friend. Her name is Faith. She is old enough to be my mother. We first met in 1999. At that time my son was eleven years old, my daughter was five and I was 32.
She has been my “Titus Woman”*.
It all started at a ladies luncheon in the spring of that year. She and an elderly lady needed a ride home. We dropped the other lady off at her own home in town. and then continued on to Faith’s home which was about a 20 minute drive from there.
It has been my experience that when it comes to the Family of God, that genuine “assembling”…(see John 4:19-26) is usually not contrived, but rather “foreordained”.
When our heart is ready He admonishes us that there is something He requires, and then He provides the means.
Faith was confident of that truth when we met, but many years passed before I was fully persuaded.
Yesterday we assembled again. She read some quotes of Frances J. Roberts. I had never heard of her. They were just wonderful! Earlier today I couldn’t wait to look her up online. I found the following quote. I hope it blesses you.
“His desire to bless you goes infinitely beyond your own personal desire to secure His blessing. There is always peace in His presence. Do not disturb this by anxiety to know what is in store for tomorrow. Out of the very tranquility of worship will be born the guidance you need.”
3 Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching what is right and good, 4 so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children, 5 to be sensible, pure, makers of a home [where God is honored], good-natured, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored. Titus 2:3 AMP
