God’s Delight

psalm 149 4

 

 

Today’s Word

Delight

Joy: to rejoice: to feel cheerfulness.

Today’s Verse 

Psalm 149:4 

For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with salvation.

Oh! To have a humble heart, a humble mind, and a humble demeanor gets rewarded with eternal salvation. God celebrates and takes joy in this. The highest reward a Christian can receive is the crown of salvation. A crown that gives 24-hour access to God. It removes the scales that covered our eyes and ears. It allows us to see the Kingdom of God, hear God’s Word, and understand the mystery of salvation.

“Father in Heaven, thank you for finding me worthy to wear the crown of salvation. Thank you for letting me be a part of your Kingdom. Thank you for revealing the mystery of salvation to me. “

Sustain Me by Your Word

Psalm 119 28

 

Today’s Word

Sustain

To provide what is needed for (something or someone) to exist, continue, etc.

Today’s Verse

 Psalm 119: 28 

I collapse from grief. Sustain me by your word! 

 

Call out to Heaven

Are you feeling helpless, alone, abandoned, or sad? Are you grieving, crying, or hurting? Do you have no one to turn to? Are you weak in spirit, or do you feel broken? You are not alone. That’s right. Call out to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Let them be your comfort, the ears that listen, the arms that comfort, the guidance you need, the love you lack, the counselor, and the strength you lack. Let God provide you with whatever your need is in order to continue living with meaning.

Seek God

Don’t collapse. Let God sustain you. Let his Word speak to you in the ways that you need. Open a Bible and read, lift your eyes to God, raise your arms to Heaven, pray to Jesus, uphold your heart to the Holy Spirit. Seek comfort in his love, understanding, and acceptance. Speak to Him. Let your request be known. Give him your cares and worries. Let him carry you through.

Abide with Him

Once you call out to Heaven and seek Him, enjoy abiding with Him. He will be in your midst. He will deliver you. He will hold you, comfort you, and provide you an understanding of your situation. He will pave a way for you to see the end of your heartache. He will be your hope. Best of all, He will do it lovingly.

Pray to Him

“Father in Heaven, I ask that you be with me today, abide with me, provide me comfort. Thank you for always listening and being here for me.”

Revelation of His Will

ephesians 1 17

Today’s Word

Revelation

God’s disclosure of Himself and His will to His creatures.

 

Today’s Verse

Ephesians 1:17

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,  may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him.

 

After we are saved, we seek knowledge. We do so by reading the Bible and learning as much as we can about our salvation, our Lord Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. In the process of learning and through our salvation, the Holy Spirit resides in us and reveals to us the mysteries of God.

We learn of God’s will to us, of wisdom and power that lay within his Word, and we grow in knowledge of the Kingdom of God. All learning leads us closer to his will and guides us to lead a life of godliness. We strive for closeness to God and daily comfort of our heartaches. We seek guidance from the Holy Spirit to gently tug at us and convict us when we err. We seek approval when we do right.

God’s revelation of his will opens our eyes to a heavenly realm and unimaginable possibilities. We now have our eyes opened as the scales of our eyes are removed and our blinders fall. How awesome it is to partake in his revelation!

If you do not know Jesus, seek Him. Allow his wondrous revelation to be instilled in your heart, mind, and soul.

God is Available 24/7

Jeremiah 29:12-14

 When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. 
 When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, 
 I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord.

Today, we want everything to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Well, did you know that God is available at every second of the day. Yes, he is. We can reach out to God anytime and any day. No matter what time of the day, He is available to hear us. There are times our families need someone to listen to them. We may be busy. However, if we have taught them about God and the Bible, then we can delegate our listening to Him.

No matter what it is, God listens to us. He listens to our heartaches, our accomplishments and triumphs, and all of our needs. He knows how to listen, answer, and comfort us.

He listens to our Heartaches

If you don’t have anyone to listen to your heartaches, take them to God. He has his doors open of communication at all times of the day. His door never closes for business. Through his door are his ears, waiting patiently to listen to us. He wants us to communicate to Him what our heartaches are. He wants to provide an answer, a solution, and comfort when needed.

Tell Him what is ailing you. Let Him know you want his presence, His knowledge, and His wisdom. Let Him intervene and help you get through. Let Him hold your hand, or let him wrap his arms around you. Whatever it is, He will know how to make it better.

He listens to our Triumphs

Have you accomplished something phenomenal but have no one to share it with, then share it with God. Let him know how well you did, how hard you worked at it, and what a great outcome you had. Let him rejoice with you.

Tell Him everything you did to get to that point. Tell Him every last detail you like to share. He doesn’t get bored. Actually, He is interested in you. Let Him smile with you. Let Him clap for you.

He listens to our Needs

Are you in need of help, financially, emotionally, or physically? It’s ok to let God know. He has the resources to help you with your struggles. Ask Him to help fulfill your need. Ask Him to provide for you, to give you comfort, or to guide your Doctors. It doesn’t matter what the need is, converse with Him.

Tell him you need help with your finances. Ask Him to help you with new sources of income, managing your spending, or getting a new and better job. Just ask him.

Are you going through an emotional turmoil? Let him know exactly what it is. Do not omit any details. Tell him the truth about the whole ordeal. He will not judge you, nor forsake you. He will simply listen and answer your requests. Sometimes subtlety, others obviously. Either way he will answer.

If you feel alone, then reach out to God. Let him walk with you and give you companionship. He is always available.

Wisdom: Slow to Anger

Today’s Word

 Wisdom

 A disposition to find the truth.

 Judgment as to what actions to pursue and deliver the correct outcome.

 Requires control of our emotional reactions so that reason prevails.

Today’s Verse

 Proverbs 19

11 A person’s wisdom makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense

As we grow in the knowledge of the Word of God, we acquire spiritual wisdom. It guides us in making good decisions. It helps us with reason and control of our emotional reactions. It allows us to seek the truth in all we see and do.

Wisdom as a Guide

The study of the Bible helps us gain knowledge and understanding of God’s standards for our daily living. It is a guide to Christians as to what is right or wrong, and as to what is expected to be our reaction to all that we encounter. It is a guide to help us control our emotions so we do not exercise outbursts of anger or wrong judgment.

Wisdom as Reason

As we grow in knowledge, we learn to use reason. We learn to make decisions with our spiritual heart, which is guided by God’s word. By using our spiritual knowledge, we learn to reason with our emotions. We allow the Holy Spirit to keeps us calm, think, evaluate, and contain our anger. We use reason as to not offend others, yet glorify God.

Wisdom as Truth

Our pursuit for the truth is led by our Christian thirst for knowledge. We seek justice, truth, compassion, love, and acceptance. Our quest for the truth drives us to use reasoning and knowledge, in order to discern right from wrong, good from bad, holy from unholy, and godly from ungodly. We set all judgment aside until we have examined all the facts and found the truth.

Truth and Mercy in Our Spiritual Heart

Today’s Word

 Mercy

 Kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly

Kindness or help that is given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation

Today’s Verse

Proverbs 3

 Do not let truth and mercy leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. 

The best asset that can be used to win others to salvation is our daily Christian example. The manner in which we conduct ourselves can leave an imprint, whether positive or negative, on those that surround us. On a day-to-day basis, we must be truthful in our words and actions and we must show mercy unto others. Proverbs 3 says to bind truth and mercy around our neck and write them on our hearts.

Be Truthful

We must use our words carefully each day, so as not to offend others. I have always understood that my rights end where others begin. What do I mean by that? I mean that I must choose to respect others, treat them with kindness, and show them a true heart. I must choose to not deceive, hurt, nor use harsh words against them.

Show Mercy

Many persons come along our path throughout our lifetime. Some are more or less deserving of our kindness than others, or so I thought. However, today’s verse says to not let truth and mercy leave us. Hmm. In other words, no matter whether I think they are more or less deserving, I must not judge and show them mercy equally.

     Imagine, I must be truthful. I must show mercy to all.

     What about my human side that does not want to do that?

     Then, it must be entrusted to God. He must be in control of our human heart so that we may speak and act with our spiritual one.

In The Presence of God

images

I was sitting here thinking what It would be like to be in the presence of God. That day when we get to live our daily lives with Him. Then I realized that before it all, I would be held accountable for all my actions here on Earth. That thought overwhelmed me. Will I be ashamed, will I be proud, will I be humble.

We all are accountable for our actions, good or bad. We think that because we are not seen, we can do as we please. Well, because we have free will, yes, we can do what we please. However, God sees all and he will be our final judge.

I don’t want that day to come and be ashamed. I want that day to come and be proud of the good things I have done. For that reason, I keep my eyes on Him and ask for help when I need it. I want his blessing. I want to know that I am not stumbling around. I want to have a pure heart. I want to rid of sin.

Unfortunately, as person, I am not perfect. I will be accountable for all my actions. I will have to answer to the wrongs I have done. That I am not looking forward to. So, what can we do?

Confess Your Sins to God

Even though God knows all things, confess your sins to Him. Talk to him about what is in your heart. Let him know what you did wrong. Let Him hear your confession.

Repent of All Sin

After you have confessed, repent with a sincere heart. Truly, feel the shame of your sin and let Him know how bad you feel for such an act.

Ask For Forgiveness

After you repent, ask God to forgive your sin. Let it be washed away. Let it be gone from your life. Most of all, don’t do it again. Try hard to rid yourself of the thought, action, or act. Ask him to help you overcome your temptation to do it again.

Psalm 38

18 Yes, I confess my wrongdoing, and I am concerned about my sins.

Psalm 32

5 Then I confessed my sin; I no longer covered up my wrongdoing.

I said, “I will confess my rebellious acts to the Lord.”

And then you forgave my sins. 

Proverbs 28

13 The one who covers his transgressions will not prosper, 

but whoever confesses them and forsakes them will find mercy.

Encouragement

1 Thessalonians 5

11 Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, just as you are in fact doing.

Sometimes we just need a little encouragement from one another. Just thought i would post a reminder to myself. I sometimes forget that we can help uplift each other.

  • In case you are in a slump, down, or just want to hear something positive, here are some words to help you make it through another day.
  • We all need a little push to help us brave the day. There are days that are better than others. On those other days where we struggle a bit, it is good to hear positive and uplifting words.
  • We are human. We make mistakes. We stumble. We sin. We get down.
  • Keep your eyes on God and Jesus and watch your day turn into a most beautiful experience.
  • Live life today with God holding your hand.
  • Breath in your surroundings and remember that every sense in us lives with him.
  • Don’t forget that Jesus is here, always, waiting on us.
  • When you see a rainbow, remember God’s covenant.
  • When you feel the breeze, that is God whispering loving words in your ear.

It helped me. I hope it helped you, too.

My Eyes Are on You, God

 

psalm 139 23
 Do your eyes wonder? Do your thoughts make you ashamed? Do you think, maybe, you are not worthy? Then you are human, imperfect, and filled with doubt. That’s Ok. Because as long as we take a breath, as long as we live in this world, our lives will be filled with all the above.

 However, there is an answer to our daily struggles, God. If we keep our eyes on him, he will help us through each day. He will remind us not to wonder, not to be ashamed, and not to feel unworthy. You see, the adversary wants us to feel that way so we can take our eyes of God. Don’t let him win.

 Keep your eyes on God

Every day, when I wake up, I wonder what kind of day I am going to have. I wonder if I am going to make it through the day. If I am going to be worthy of God’s grace or if I am going to fail miserably. The truth is that by keeping my eyes on God, I will have the best day possible.

Keep your thoughts on God

 When I feel my thoughts attacking me, I think of God and how he works in my life. I read a passage in the bible, or I pray for help in keeping my thoughts on him. I will not allow the adversary to win.

 Feel God’s presence in your life

 When I take a breath, I feel God’s presence. He gave me the air to breath and the lungs to breathe with. When I open my eyes, I see his masterpiece surrounding my life. The wonders of God are all around us. Each marvel brings a thought of his amazing powers.

 If you feel as if you are wondering about life, then do so with God by your side. Let him help you find your way, let him fill your thoughts, and let him remind you that you were worth dying for. He gave us his son Jesus. Why would he not give you a good day?

 Exodus 33

 14 And the Lord said, “My presence will go with you”

 Psalm 139

23 Examine me, and probe my thoughts Test me, and know my concerns!

 Mark 12

11 This is from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

In God’s time

 

I have had many experiences in the late that have taught me about trusting God. Not only to answer prayers, but also to work on all issues in his time, not mine. Seems like the wait is endless, but the results are fabulous. It amazes me, day after day, how little things can become big things, yet trusting God to be in charge resolves all in a way that we never imagined.

 At times, a problem that we can solve in various months through much effort, resolves itself earlier and effortless. That is the power of trust. That is the power of God. When God is in control, all things are possible with unlimited potential for the best outcome.

 2 Corinthians 6

 2 For he says, “I heard you at the acceptable time,

 Galatians 4

 4 But when the appropriate time had come, God sent out his Son,

 It is then, that believing in God, trusting him, and allowing him control takes on great faith. Faith can be the belief in the unseen and the unheard, yet seen and heard. For if we open our hearts, we will see him reveal himself to us, and we will hear what he has to say. Is your heart open to God?

  •  Believe in God
  • Trust Him

  • Allow Him Control

 Let blessings flow by giving to him all that burdens your heart, not some, but all burdens. From those as small as a grain of salt to those that take up our entire universe. Let blessing fall in his time. God’s time is the right time.
