“Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the LORD and do GOOD; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed. DELIGHT yourself also in the LORD, and HE WILL give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. Commit YOUR way to the LORD; trust also in HIM and HE WILL bring it to pass.” Psalms 37:3-5 AMP
"Every breath that I take, every moment I'm awake......LORD, have YOUR way in me."
Quick Reminder: In Christ, wholeness---nothing missing, nothing broken---is your portion.
For the joy set before Him (which was us), He endured the cross. He tore the veil, that kept us out. He became our High Priest, so that we could come boldly to the throne of grace, obtain mercy and help when we need it most (Hebrews 4:14-16). Not just so that we could be saved and spend eternity with Him, but also because He wanted to have a relationship with us. He wanted to walk and talk with us. He wanted to not just use us for His glory, but to be our soul’s delight…..He wanted our HEARTS.
I’m convinced, there’s no other like Jesus. No news like the Good News of the Gospel. No love like the cross. And for the rest of my life, I’ll serve and love HIM!
It’s amazing how at times we pursue people and/or things more than we pursue the LORD. And all the while, the Lord is waiting on us to acknowledge HIM, to spend time with HIM, to put all of the energy that we would in pursuing those people or that thing, into pursuing HIM. Because He knows that when we seek Him, we will not only find HIM, but that ALL those “things” will be added to us (Matthew 6:33) and that we will NOT lack any good thing (Psalm 34:10)
May we not be a generation that just knows a lot about God, but one who knows Him as a result of our DAILY intimacy with HIM.
