Good morning Father! You are awesome and wonderful! I need You! But it’s not the awesome and wonderful mighty and powerful qualities I need right now, it’s Your love. You are Father, my Daddy, and I am Your child whom You love with all Your heart. I need to spend time in Your presence, and there wasn’t much time for that in the last few days. I miss You and need to connect at a deep level this morning. It’s a desire for conversation, for connection. This desire is actually a hunger deep in my soul to soak in Your presence, to hear Your voice.
This body is out of sync this morning, as are these thoughts. But my spirit lives in You, You in me. Each morning I "plug into" You and Your Word to get synced up with You before moving on into the day.
As the cell phone connects with the computer and moves on with identical information, so also after time spent with You, Lord, our day stays connected with You, Your love, Your will directing it.
Father, thank You for the ability to link up with Your heart. Just give us the courage to live adhering to what we know to be true. Hold us close to You Father, teach us: First You lead us in right standing with You:
Psalm 45:7 (AMP)
You love righteousness, uprightness, and right standing with God and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your fellows.
Psalm 43:2-5 (AMP)
For You are the God of my strength [my Stronghold—in Whom I take refuge]; why have You cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Good question! God is my stronghold. Why would I fear? God will never cast me off when I live a life of obedience to Him. BUT if I somehow feel this way, just ask God ~
3 O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling.
4 Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my exceeding joy; yes, with the lyre will I praise You, O God, my God!
Praise HIM! Sing praises and the lies will dissipate! God inhabits the praise of His people
5 Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my [sad] countenance, and my God.
My God is my hope and His faithfulness brings joy to my countenance.
Even when we get into difficult situations and troubles, knowing how deeply He loves us, we can give any problem, no matter how hopeless it seems, to God and trust in Him to bring about the best possible outcome. Nothing is impossible with God, and He promises:
Romans 8:28-32 (NLT)
28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.
Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
When we live vitally connected to our Father God, nothing can come against us in victory! We are always the conquerors! God dwells within us protecting, guiding, fighting for us. Fully trusting in God always brings peace and joy to our soul. So let’s continue to build trust and intimacy with our Lord by beginning our day plugged in and in sync with His heart!
