Resolutely Set Out…
April 2, 2008
A woman must not wear men’s clothing, and a man must not wear women’s clothing. The LORD your God detests people who do this.
As the time drew near for his return to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
Jesus replied, “Let those who are spiritually dead care for their own dead. Your duty is to go and preach the coming of the Kingdom of God.”
“Go now, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.”

Both day and night belong to you; you made the starlight and the sun. You set the boundaries of the earth, and you make both summer and winter.
Hard work means prosperity; only fools idle away their time.
Hard work means:
1) Doing the right thing – and the recompense of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him – Proverbs 12:14b(KJV) –
2) Do what you say – a man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth. Proverbs 12:14a (KJV)
The hand of the diligent shall bear rule(meaning); and the slothful shall be under tribute(?).
Proverbs 12:24 (KJV)
In the way of righteousness is life. And in the the pathway thereof there is no death.
Proverbs 12:28 (KJV)
fruit of his mouth – Proverbs 13:2 – definition needed
soul – mind, will and emotions
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Proverbs 13:4 (KJV)
Some notes from Marilyn Hickey’s book, “The Power of Prayer and Fasting” – Chapter 3 – The Spiritual Discipline of Fasting:
Recognize as you reevaluate your habits that your habits produce results not only in your life, but in the lives of others around you. Ask yourself, “Are the habits of my life helpful or hurtful to those around me?
Ask for God’s discernment about which habits you need to change. Which you need to get rid of, and which you need to adopt or add to your life. Ask for His help in making these changes.
Question to ask myself when I am working/doing things:
Is what I am doing producing a heavenly reward?
