My Walk With God -- "Copper Path"
by Mary Wilson

It never ceases to amaze me how much God loves us and wants to show us that love personally.

He constantly speaks of His love through His Word; the Bible.

A very important verse that speaks of His love is found in John 3:16.... "For God so loved, He gave..."

Today I found a piece of copper in my pathway. I came home and looked up the word "copper" in the concordance of my Bible; and these are some of the verses that spoke to my heart.

I feel like there might be a person that will read this story one day; and need to know that Jesus loves them and that He will take care of them. Maybe you are that someone; and He is speaking to your heart right now.

Deu. 8:5-7 and verse 9 also "You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you. Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. For the Lord your God is bringing you to a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs that flow out of valleys and hills."

Verse 9 "A land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig "copper."

Luke 12:6-9 "Are not 5 sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore you are of more value than many sparrows. Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me [Jesus] before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God. But he who denies Me [Jesus] before men will be denied before the angels of God."

You are very special to Jesus and you can be His voice in this dark, dark world. Every time that you open your mouth in His name, you are giving His light and you are actually piercing the worlds darkness.

You are special to Him and He is big enough to take care of you!

We are His vessels that He chooses to use in this world.

Mark 7:4 speaks of the Pharisees who come from the marketplace and wash in order to eat out of copper vessels.

We also must come out of the world's marketplace, and be washed [saved by placing our faith in Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and then be daily washed by His Word and confess daily sins -I. John 1:9]. Then we can become the vessels that He can use to feed a hungry world that needs to know Him.

We can't clean ourselves up -- nor can we clean anyone else up! This must be a work of God through His Holy Spirit.

We come to Him for ourselves first and then when we are clean; only then can we pray for others.

Let go of trying to control things - it only leads to frustration and anger!;.... trust God for the results; in His time!
