Coming In , Going Out

” Blessed shall you be when you come in,

and blessed shall you be when you go out.”

~Deuteronomy 28:6

If I keep the commands of the Lord, I may appropriate this promise without question.

 This day I will come into my house without fear of evil tidings, and i will come into my closet expecting to hear good news from my Lord. I will not be afraid to come unto myself by self-examination,nor to come into my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. Oh for the blessings of the lord Jesus, who has promised to abide with me.

I must go out . Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world. But I go out in my calling; I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh for a blessing upon my going out this day!

   Lord, let me go where You lead,on Your errands, under Your command,and in the power of Your Spirit.

Peace to you

  1. Thank you for sharing this…I struggle with needing to be alone and wanting to close myself off from the world. Quiet time with Him is so important…but so is being available and allowing Him to use us in the world. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend 🙂

    1. You are so right Julie. It is a difficult balance at times. Lord lead us when to rest in you and when to go. We are having a blast. Grandparents weekend. The kids are treating us and we get to see the babies yahooooo! Thanks Julie for your kind comment.

  2. I agree with this wonderful message, but I would add the caveat that you should go out two by two, as Christ commanded (Mark 6:7). Don’t try to defend the faith on your own. Even Paul didn’t try that.

    1. Ruth that is worth studying more. You got my curiosity up. I have to be frank with you. This post was part of my reading time. It goes to show when brother Spurgeon can write it wrong. It also would send the wrong message to uninformed Christians. Thank you for being faithful.

      Much love Tom
