Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word – it is simple, not easy, but simple. It gives you bite sized portions, that you can apply immediately, it clarifies your choice, and foretells the result. It always has a good return. It highlights every choice, and everything is a choice. The investment is obedience, it’s action more than money. Psalms 86:1-4 – Hear O LORD and answer me for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God, save your servant who trusts in you. Have mercy O God for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for to you I lift up my soul. First, if you’re humble – if recognize your need for Him, and ask… He will answer. If you are devoted to Him, you’re his servant… He is your God, not just God. If you are devoted to Him, He will guard your life. Guarding you is keeping you on the right path, the best path. If you trust in Him, He will save you? Trust is to put your full weight on, your full belief in. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Don’t lean on anything else. In all your ways acknowledge Him (as what? As LORD - Do what He tells you to do) so He can direct your path. Its how He guards you. God saves you in an instant, but most often He saves you on a path. A path to His Good! Choice by choice. If you call to Him all day long, He will have mercy on you. He knows we are just flesh, made of dust. He has mercy for mistakes, even for struggles, and He has Grace (Divine power) – for every choice to be your victory. His grace is enough to turn this choice - into victory. His grace is enough right now – to help you make the choice of victory, not defeat. If you lift up your soul to Him, He will bring joy. Your soul tends to what is natural, your spirit leans toward spirit. Whatever you lift up your soul to, will produce victory, or defeat. If you lift up your soul to Him, that means you are turning from the desires of the world, and training your soul to desire Him. It’s how He brings you joy. A complete and deeply abiding happiness at what is presently experienced, and what is fully expected. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life! And then, I get to dwell in the House of the LORD forever. It just gets better! This life isn't struggle free, but God has victory for you, and a sure end. Praying that you will be devoted to Him – so He guards you. That you will fully trust in Him, so He saves you, that you will call out to him – so His mercy finds you, and that you will lift up your soul to Him, so He brings joy to your life – that nothing else can ever compare with. If you ask, He will answer, If you trust, you will obey, and if you trust and obey, He will save you and lead you and guide you. His path is always victory - and He always brings unexplainable joy.
