The Lord is my shepherd.

Not was, not may be, nor will be.

“The Lord

IS

my Shepherd,”

IS

on Sunday,

IS

on Monday,

and

IS

through every day of the week;

IS

in January,

IS

in December,

and every month of the year;

IS

at home,

and

IS

in China;

IS

in peace,

and,

IS

in war;

in abundance,

and in penury.

“The land which I do give them, even the children of Israel…”

(Joshua 1:2).

“Go over this Jordan,

thou,

and all this people,

unto the land which I do give to them,

even to the children of Israel.”

God here speaks in the immediate present.

It is not something He is going to do,

but something He does do, this moment.

So faith ever speaks.

So God ever gives.

 So He is meeting you today,

in the present moment.

This is the test of faith.

So long as you are waiting for a thing,

hoping for it,

looking for it,

you are not believing.

It may be hope,

it may be earnest desire,

but it is not faith;

for “faith is the substance of things hoped for,

the evidence of things not seen.”

The command in regard to believing prayer is the present tense.

“When ye pray, believe that ye receive the things that ye desire,

and ye shall have them.”

Have we come to that moment?

Have we met God in His everlasting NOW?

–Joshua, by Simpson

When faith goes to market it always takes a basket.

Matthew 28:20

And,

lo,

I am with you always,

even unto the end of the world.

Amen.
