Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It gives clear instruction for success, reminders, and clear takeaways. It tells us what God does and what we should do, so life is full of blessing, protected, and productive. It tells us how to live an abundant life, not without trouble, but with victory. Psalms 61: Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge a strong tower against the enemy. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations. May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him. Then I will ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.” Life in Christ is a vow. An exchange, He gave his life for us, and we give our lives in obedience to him. The greatest exchange ever. His righteousness for our sin and weakness, His plans instead of ours. So worth it. I just love God’s Word, because you can extract truth for yourself. It’s so important to speak out loud – His Word for yourself. Praying that you will speak this. Here’s what God does. He hears my cry, He listens to my prayer when I call to him, when my heart grows faint. He always leads me to Jesus (the Word of Truth) the Rock that is higher than I. He is my refuge and strong tower against the enemy, whom I run to first. He has given me the heritage of those who fear the LORD! He appoints His love and faithfulness to protect me. And here’s what I will do. I will pray to Him, I will run to Him first, as my refuge and strong tower, I’m protected against the enemy. I will long to dwell in His presence, and choose it today, and every day. I will praise His Name forever and obey Him with my life! There is a heritage for those who fear the LORD – a legacy of protection and blessing for them and their children, and their children after them. His promises never fail, and every time we choose Him, whether His presence, His Word, or His plans – they always bring His favor and His blessing. A life that’s not without trouble, but always victorious! Praying that you will remind yourself out loud today what He does, and what you will do. So you remember that it’s worth it!
