HIS WORD IS HEART-SPEAK

Posted on January 25, 2021 at 3:45 AM


                                                                      

Deuteronomy 5:6-7

6 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

7 You shall have no other gods before Me or besides Me


.God's Word tells us the most important rule is this one. We have one true God and we must honor and worship Him and no other. Think deeply: do you sit at the altar before another? What do you think of most of the time? Is money your god? Is pride your god? What others think of you? God tells us, if He comes first in our life, our life will come into order. Let's take a look at a Psalm:


 Psalm 25 [A Psalm] of David.

 1 Unto You, O Lord, do I bring my life.

2 O my God, I trust, lean on, rely on, and am confident in You. Let me not be put to shame or [my hope in You] be disappointed; let not my enemies triumph over me. 3 Yes, let none who trust and wait hopefully and look for You be put to shame or be disappointed; let them be ashamed who forsake the right or deal treacherously without cause.

 

4 Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths.

5 Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You [You only and altogether] do I wait [expectantly] all the day long.

6 Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercy and loving-kindness; for they have been ever from of old.

7 Remember not the sins (the lapses and frailties) of my youth or my transgressions; according to Your mercy and steadfast love remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. (According to Your Word, when we repent, you do not remember our sins),   


Rather He Himself will teach us     8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will He instruct sinners in [His] way.

9 He leads the humble in what is right, and the humble He teaches His way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and steadfast love, even truth and faithfulness are they for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

11 For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity and my guilt, for [they are] great. Our God is full of grace and mercy and loves us deeply; He desires to be one with us, so His forgiveness comes by grace. Our heartfelt repentance brings forth His pardon.

 

12 Who is the man who reverently fears and worships the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that he should choose. Our Lord will instruct us.

.13 He himself shall dwell at ease, and his offspring shall inherit the land.

 

14 The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. I love this verse! Yes, when we revere and worship our God, we do have His sweet companionship where He reveals His secrets and shares His heart with us, as we share ours with Him. It's a beautiful relationship bringing peace and joy! We grow to understand what a covenant relationship is. Do you have this kind of connection with our God? Did you know it was possible?

                                                                        

15 My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will pluck my feet out of the net.      His love  covers us with protection. . .

 16 [Lord] turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. He helps us with our emotional needs. . .

17 The troubles of my heart are multiplied; bring me out of my distresses.

18 Behold my affliction and my pain and forgive all my sins [of thinking and doing].

19 Consider my enemies, for they abound; they hate me with cruel hatred.( Is true of the devil and his demons)

 

20 O keep me, Lord, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed or disappointed, for my trust and my refuge are in You.    I trust Him.

21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for and expect You. Yes our God is faithful to His promises and we can count on Him -  so long as we obey His commands, trust and lean on Him. This is a growing bond as with any association. Time spent together in heart-sharing builds us closer in trust and love. God shares His love for us in the Scriptures, and so immersing ourselves in His Word will enable us to tie ourselves strongly to His wonder and affection for us.


22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all their troubles.Especially now we must remember to pray for Israel! President Trump did much to help our connection with Israel. The Word tells us that if we bless Israel, we will be blessed. Oh Lord, please work with our new potus to undrrstand this. All things arr possible for You


My friends, don't waste another day of heart sharing love with our Redeemer. A tender warmth of affection fills our spirit in a God - relationship; it is totally rewarding in this life and in the next. Now is the time, this is the year to seek Him out and buiild  or rebuild that close tie with Him; get to truly know the enormity of the love He has for you and me! It makes a huge difference in our lives on this earth and in eternity!

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.
