This morning it’s just You and me God. It feels like I am beginning a spin cycle time. . . You know where many decisions must be made and things accomplished in a specified time. This has a tendency to distract my eyes from YOU. But now, I choose to focus on You. You are the One Who created the universe and all the beautiful gifts in it just for us. I come to You for help, for Yu love me and You are able.
You put me in a beautiful family. You blessed me with a wonderful husband who loves me and You blessed us with beautiful kids and grandkids. Lord, my desire is to please You, yet sometimes I feel so inadequate, so lacking in strength and ability to do that; however, I know “greater are You Who live in me than he who lives in the world”. Holy Spirit help me to be who You created me to be, for now I am still unsettled, like a cloud hangs over my head.
“The joy of the Lord is my strength”. Jesus I want Your joy. I ask for your supernatural joy; I qualify for it according to~
John 15:10-12 (Amplified Bible) If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father's commandments and live on in His love.
I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.
You, my God, are wise, the Creator of the universe. . . of all things beautiful, things on earth and beyond.
You created the physical world and the spiritual world. You created me with a physical part and a spirit part.
Psalm 139:13-16 (The Message) Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.
Oh mighty God! You do indeed know me totally. I worship You my God! Lead me, guide my words and actions. I want my life to give honor to You!
Recently I told a friend that my confidence seemed less, and that was the enemy feeding me a lie. I’m sure of it because now this morning You say:
Hebrews 10:35-36 NIV
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
Thank You my God You are our Provider!
You know, my friends, this mighty God can and will help us in every area when we ask.
Lord, I ask for wisdom on seeing truth . . . convict me of any false beliefs or thoughts, Holy Spirit. I must follow You perfectly! That is my heart's desire. Did you put that ability in me Father? Can I do that? You in me can do it.
Why did that comment bring a twinge of discomfort in me Father? Like little termite nibble of fear. Ho Ho no! Fear is of the enemy. In the name of Jesus I squash you little bug wipe you off the bottom of my shoe and go on. I serve the God of Gods and He has never failed me and He never will! I have nothing to fear. He holds me in the palm of His hand. He has hidden me, His polished arrow, in His quiver until the time is right for it to fly, and it is honed to perfection. (Isaiah 49:2 NIV) You my God are perfect and do all things right. You pare me down to just the right size. You design me to fly by Your plans. I am totally where I want to be; in Your hands, your protection, and submitted to Your control. Hold me close every moment Lord! I love You!!
My friends, what do you think? Do you know God this way? Do you trust Him completely? Or do you have questions?
