I Bid You Come

The Master calleth you…

I bid you come

There are many distractions in this world that have held you back…

Still I bid you come

It is not too late, though you have set me aside for a better time…

I bid you come

There are bills to be paid, and laundry to do, and if you will just wait for me to finish this class…

Still I bid you come

It’s tax time again, and time moves so fast; I just got this job, and what about my past?

Be Still

I Bid You…

Come

“Ho every one who thirsts come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.” Isaiah 55:1-3

“Come to me all who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

“–If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” Mark 8:34-36

“Peter began to say to him, ‘Lo, we have left everything, and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But many that are first will be last, and the last first.'” Mark 10:28-31

“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10

“O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!” Psalms 95:1-2

“O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!” Psalms 95:6-7

 

I Tend to You

Adapt an attitude of praise and thanksgiving when troublesome times appear, for they are but a vapor in time and you will see them no more.

My children tend to think first, then pray later. I want you to practice prayer and allow your thoughts to be that of meditation on My Word. For this strange thing that has come upon you is not anything that has missed My notice. I have already prepared the balance for you. It is in trust and faithfulness that you come through to the other side of it unscathed.

Much time is wasted toiling and fretting–this is needless; for your Father careth for you. I will tend to you. Come to Me, you who are weary and burden-laden and I will give you rest.

“Behold, God is My salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song and he has become my salvation.” Is. 12:2

“Like cattle that go down into the valley, the Spirit of the Lord gave them rest. So thou didst lead thy people, to make for thyself a glorious name.” Is. 63:14

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou dost preserve my life; thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand delivers me. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O Lord, endures for ever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands.” Ps. 138:7-8

“I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord.” Ps. 104:33-34
