Done All He Can Do

Isaiah 29:13-16 (MSG)

The Master said:

“These people make a big show of saying the right thing,

but their hearts aren’t in it.

Because they act like they’re worshiping me

but don’t mean it,

I’m going to step in and shock them awake,

astonish them, stand them on their ears.

The wise ones who had it all figured out

will be exposed as fools.

The smart people who thought they knew everything

will turn out to know nothing.”

15-16

Doom to you! You pretend to have the inside track.

You shut God out and work behind the scenes,

Plotting the future as if you knew everything,

acting mysterious, never showing your hand.

You have everything backward. . .


Lord, You put up with so much from us! Then again sometimes You get Your fill, and the dissatisfaction spills over. You don’t want lip service; You don't want fake words meaning nothing. You desire our hearts!


You want and deserve our love, respect and honor! Lord, I bow down to You lifting my hands in praise and worship. You are the Almighty One, Creator of the heavens and the earth; You created me. O God, Your worth is greater than I can even realize or understand. What I know is You love me so much that You, Jesus, came to earth as a human being, giving up Your Divine powers and position.

You came that we might begin to understand Father God as our personal God who loves us dearly! You came to be our substitute in the sin debt mankind owes God; You paid it off entirely. Now we come freely to You as new people, natures cleansed of sin. [Picture made @pdeddy.com]

When we repent and accept You as our Savior, inviting You to be Lord of our lives, we are transformed into new creatures. Our hearts are open to You, desiring to be the best we can be, and wanting to love, obey, and please You as our loving Lord.


Then You also will send Holy Spirit to indwell us so we have our own personal Guide, Mentor, Comforter, Counselor who also loves us. He came to Jesus disciples on the first Pentecost in the upper room. He now comes to us helping us in understanding the Word and other mysteries of life. He is our helper, so we never have to walk alone.


Our God loves us and desires all of us to be with Him for all eternity. But it’s our choice. He has done all he can do for us, and now it’s up to us to make the decision to accept Jesus gift or not. Rejecting Jesus and what He did is rejecting God, and will prevent us from ever enjoying our eternity in heaven.

My friends, if you have not yet repented of your sin and accepted Jesus as Lord of your life, do it today. I want to meet you in heaven! And we never know when our last hour on earth will come.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
