Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word. It tells you and it invites you. If you respond, it will position you. Psalms 84:1 – How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints for the courts of the LORD. My heart and my flesh cry out for the Living God. How did David get that way? How did he get a soul that yearned for God, and a heart, mind and body that cried out for the Living God? Does your soul yearn for His courts? Does your heart and body cry out for the Living God? Or other things? How did David get this way? Time in God’s presence, and time in obedience - doing what God told him. It’s an acquired taste. The more you spend time with Him, in His Word and In His Presence, the more your love for Him grows. The more you obey what He reveals (the first thing, at the first opportunity, right now) the more your love for Him grows. Acts 13:22 I’ve found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart, He will do every thing I want Him to do. This is an acquired taste, it’s un-natural. You get to that place of longing for Him, but spending time with Him and doing what He says. That’s how your heart for Him grows. Praise God -Jesus said ‘It’s good for you that I go, so the Father will send the Holy Spirit.’ No longer do we have to take our family to Jerusalem every year. God now dwells in the hearts of men, every time we turn to Him, we can be in His presence because of His Spirit that filled us and lives within us. But we need to turn. Praying that your time with Him will increase your yearning for Him. It’s where peace is and wisdom and direction that you need. In His presence, you’ll find peace, and your peace will remain, when panic is all around you. In His presence you’ll find joy – real joy, not the kind the world gives, that is just temporary, and fades in a moment. In His presence you’ll find your purpose – that for which you were created. In His presence you’ll find wisdom – that you need for today. In His presence you’ll find strength, you’ll know truth, you’ll know the love of your Father in Heaven for you – far beyond any earthly love you could ever know. Praying that His dwelling place, that place of worship in His presence, and sitting at His feet – hearing His Word, and doing it quickly – will grow your love for Him so every Good thing that He is and He gives – will grow His Great Name in your life. So that your heart yearns like David, and God can say if you - Just put your name in… I’ve found ____ a man after my own heart, a woman after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do. She will do everything I want her to do. Praying that PiVAT for today has you knowing and obeying what He assigned for your good. That PRISM today has you hearing his great love for you and specific direction for what you will face, that your Daily Call has you overcoming with another – just like He commanded, (Hebrews 3:13) so you walk in the joy of the LORD, the strength of His Might, and the purpose that He has called you to. For His glory and your good!
