you people who have taken My instruction to heart."
(Over and over, the Lord pleads with us to listen to Him,
calling us who follow Him to heed His Voice
because He knows we do not always do what is right,
because He knows we do not always take His instruction to heart,
because He knows we do not flawlessly walk out His commands,
because He knows we desperately need His teaching and guidance.
In His great mercy, because He has invited us
to be born into His forgiveness,
and because we have responded to His invitation
by asking Him to be Lord of our lives,
He has written on our hearts a desire to hear and obey Him.
Implicit in His invitation to us who know Him
and who know what is right because of Him
is the underlying assurance and encouragement
that we not only can hear His Voice, a miracle in itself,
but that He enables us to walk out the life in Him to which He has called us,
no matter what that may look like today!)May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
