CONNIE'S UPDATE FOR MAY 2009
 
Connie's Update For May 2009
 

 
I wanted to get this out to you as soon as possible. My new website is up and running, and over the past few weeks, I have been vigorously working to get it up to par. There is so much more to do. The work is unending.
 
Nonetheless, I do want to point your attention especially to the Bible Study Center where all of the good stuff is there for you to enjoy and grow in the ways of the Lord. Please do take advantage of what is posted there. The days I do not send out a message does not mean that I am taking time off or on vacation. I am most likely working hard on posting another meditation or getting the Bible Reading theme together for the day. Those would be favorable times to visit my website at - www.walkingintruth.org - and feast on the Word.
 
As you click on the Bible Study Center, you will open up to a list of items. Concerning the "Articles" at the top, I am presently working on one for this week. Check it in a day or two, and you will be able to read this week's message.
 
The "Bible Reading Plan" is a very cool item. I have been having a lot of fun with this one. I have submitted a theme for each Bible Reading of the day. Depending on what's going on in your life at the moment, you can click on the theme and see how all three passages from both the Old and New Testament speak in some way about that theme. God will surely speak to you through His Word. Not only that - this is a great opportunity for you to go deeper into the Word - and that is always a good thing!  
 
The "Daily Devotional" is listed next. Here you will find all of the messages that I sent out for May. You can also find these by clicking on the dates on the calendar on the front page. If you click on a date, and it says - "No Devotional" - simply proceed to the next date. The title of the message will then show up beneath the calendar. Click on that and you will be taken to the message. This way you do not have to store my messages in folders or files on your computer. They are posted on the website for all to read.
 
I want to especially draw your attention to the next feature - the "Daily Meditations." These are shortened renditions of my messages - basically dealing with a particular verse of Scripture and then offering an application at the end. I have included one here for you to see what it entails. This one is called - "I Know My Redeemer Lives!" -
 
"Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel" (Isaiah 41:14).  
 
God is speaking to His exiled people in Babylon. He is telling them that they have nothing to fear - even though they feel so little, weak, and defenseless. 
 
This idea is especially brought out in the designation that God uses for them -"thou worm Jacob." Why such a label? In their own eyes, they were mean and despicable... despised...in a state of contempt and affliction...trampled on by every body  ...unable to defend or deliver themselves...in a state of helplessness to resist their enemies...and seemingly forced to creep into the earth for safety. In the view of their enemies, they were the object of contempt and insignificance.   

God said to them - "Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel..." Not only does He refer to them as a "worm," but then He alludes to their smallness in number or their being accounted as dead men - out of remembrance. This is what "ye men of Israel" implied. It carried the idea of them being few or feeble and also that they had no more respect shown them than the dead. 
 
In spite of their situation and condition, why did God tell them that they had nothing to fear? 

Simply because as "the LORD, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel," He promised to liberate them from their oppressors - "...I will help thee, saith the LORD, and Thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel." His title -"Redeemer" - highlighted His zeal to defend and protect them. He was the One Who would come to free them out of the hand of all their enemies.

As "LORD," He had all power in heaven and earth to do the impossible. As "the Holy One of Israel," He would be sure to keep His promise to help them. And as "Redeemer," He would surely come to their rescue, overcome their enemies, and deliver them.

It is interesting to note at this point a very striking characteristic of the "worm." Even though it is weak and defenseless in appearance, it does have an area of  strength. Its strength is found in its mouth. The "worm" doesn't strike like the snake, but it can gnaw great trees as the cedars and bring them down.                
 
God's people - being likened to the "worm" also find their "strength" in their mouths - that is, in their prayers. As they call on their Mighty Redeemer - the LORD of heaven and earth - none other than Jesus Christ - He comes and rescues them from their powerful enemies who are out to destroy them.

"Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel."

Be encouraged today! As "the Holy One of Israel," God will be sure to keep His promise to you. You need not be afraid. He will surely help you and deliver you. You will see those harassing enemies no more!

(end of Daily Meditation)

Another good meditation is "Have You Been Encountered By Pleasure And Pride?" I enjoyed writing them all and only wish that I could post more here for you as samples.
 
Please do take the time to check them out on my website - www.walkingintruth.org   You can also click on the most recent one from the front page under the heading of "Daily Meditations." You will see a link for - "Read Today's Meditation." Click on that and it will take you to the most up-to-date writing.

The final feature included in the Bible Study Center is the "Weekly Meditation." Here you will find a Scripture followed by a famous quote from a renowned author. This will always be something rich in content and meaning.

Also, on the front page, you will find a box at the bottom right hand side of the screen which says - "Prayer." Here I have posted a general prayer for all. These prayers will be changed periodically as the Lord leads. If you are in need of prayer, visit my website at - www.walkingintruth.org - and allow me to touch and agree with you for your particular breakthrough. This is my way for right now of coming into agreement with you for whatever you need. God is a Big God and can use a simple prayer such as this one to bring forth the answer that you need.

I ask that you would direct people to my website at - www.walkingintruth.org - to sign up for the Daily Devotional. The idea is to get as many people as possible across this globe - reading and studying the Bible. We at Walking In Truth Ministry are believing for a Bible Revival. God knows we desperately need it! The Bible is under attack more than ever before!

Finally, I draw your attention to the box at the right hand center of the screen entitled - "Give To Walking In Truth." Here you will find all of the info needed to give to this ministry. Please read the message that I included in this section. It gives our mission and the reasons why you should willingly give to such a ministry as ours.

Needless to say - there is so much more work to be done on this website. What you see is only the beginning. I will be getting my picture taken in the next few days. There is audio and video equipment that runs into the hundreds of dollars for each piece along with the software needed to learn how to operate it. Periodically, my board will meet to discuss the revisions needed on the website to bring it more up to date and to keep it at a "state of the art" condition.

As we all know, running a ministry takes money. This is besides the  personal needs that my family and I have to face day after day.

Oftentimes, with a faith-based ministry, there is the problem of the offerings coming in at one time and then dropping off at another. We are facing a lull at this time. We need your help.

Will you please prayerfully consider sending us the most generous gift that you can send at this time?

Or if you choose to send an offering using
Paypal, you can send it to the e-mail address - connie@walkingintruth.org 
    
I can honestly say that I do not work an eight hour shift each day on preparing my messages for your edification. This work never ends. I am constantly at it. You can ask my family and they will verify that fact for you.

This burden to "drive people" to the Word of God consumes me night and day. This is our only Hope in America and around the world. It is crucial that we give ourselves to the study of the Word of God. And most importantly, that we become doers of it and not hearers only!

Shortly, I will be sending another update to you listing the various pieces of equipment needed and the costs of each. Plus there are other things to share, but I will have to hold it for another time.
                             
Lately, God has been speaking to me on the importance of being a "Doer" of His Word and not a hearer only! The greatest compliment you can give me is to tell me that your life is being transformed by the messages that I am sending out.
                                         
The most blessed thing is - I am receiving such reports on a daily basis. Constantly, I hear from you telling me how you are growing in the ways of the Lord or that your lives are being transformed by God's Word through my messages.
 
This thrills me for it shows that you are not just reading the messages but you are "doing" them. You are not "hearers only" like so many deceived Christians out there. But you are determined to be "doers" and, as a result, you are receiving the blessing from on High!

Once again, please do take the time to visit and then revisit over and over again my website at - www.walkingintruth.org  Go there and allow Holy Spirit to speak to you through the various featured writings. I know that your life will never be the same again as a result.
 
And don't forget to give to Walking In Truth Ministry. As we have been and are continuing to be a blessing to you, consider being a blessing to us in return. The needs are great at this time. We need your help! 
 
Have a GLORIOUS WEEKEND in Jesus,  

Connie
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.  (Isaiah 54:17)
