His Words To My Heart

I can tell you that I am very thankful the lord found me, because it sure was not me who found him, walking that self-involved path that I was. I know that I may not feel like the closest person to him right now, but I think that my life shows that I am only standing up because of him. And no matter how down I am, I never forget that he is the reason I am breathing, and still here. I wish that I can show you guys the very core of my being, how and why I can honestly say that I love Jesus. He first loved me, and being able to give him this wayward heart of mine is such a blessing and a testament of his grace. He makes sense out of the Rambled Process that I consider my life, and life in general, to be.

He Delivers

Reading a devotional the other morning, it started with Psalms 77 verses 14-15, and ended with my heart. My heart, when it is not right with God, I don’t try to hide it. What’s the point? He knows all, and I want his correcting love. This devotional I read was from e-sword and from the Rylism section, the author I think is James C Ryle.

But Psalms 77:14-15 says “You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations. By your strong arm, you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.”

God has done that! He has delivered his people, constantly, out of the troubled times, in both the old testament and new testament days. I think that some times we read the bible and forget that the words recorded there are not stories, but the lives of many. It’s so relevant because it shows us how times change, but the situation stays the same. There are no more words to be added to the bible, as the Lord wills it, but we are still in the New Testament days.  All this we are going through, God knows and he does all things that are good. Therefore, when we feel like breaking and giving up—hold on a bit, and call, cry shout, whisper the powerful name of Jesus, for he knows. He knows. And more awesome, he’s coming. He’s coming and bringing to us deliverance!!

Rylism ended his devotional with “So when the trouble comes, then know that Deliverance is also on the way. Rejoice my brothers and sisters — we serve the God who makes things happen!”

Don’t we Just! As I write this, I am saying Lord I know deliverance is coming, because I am your child and you love me. And he knows that I have been troubled, and he is not sitting still. I know he is not sitting still, for he knows I am in trouble and he is always calling us out of the darkness. I just want to let him know that I know now, and I am ready for these dark days to be behind me.

Are You In Need? Sing A Psalms, Know Your Peace

So, I just finished Ephesians, and I am so glad I decided to read that after Pastor Will’s teaching. He pointed out so much. I already put up one of the chapters for that book, and I will put up the next. But I really decided that I need to read Psalms. The book of Psalms is great and have a lot of great teachings just like the other books, but I was just led to read this next. Although I don’t know who is reading my post, but I really hope that I have shared enough for you guys to know that no matter what you are going through, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. And even if you don’t have any other person to talk to or share with, you have Jesus. Jesus who died for us and came to show us the truth. Its not some fairy tale,  its the TRUTH. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is friends of sinners, he’s the greatest doctor out there. And the thing is, he doesn’t only heal physical illness, he heals everything. Broken hearts, weariness, everything. So sing a Psalms and get to build that relationship with God. This is not a religion, its a Relationship, remember that always.

 

Psalm 1

BOOK ONE (Psalms 1–41)
1 Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
2 But they delight in the law of the LORD,
meditating on it day and night.
3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.

4 But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
6 For the LORD watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

Faith And Confession

It’s 6:46 AM and I decided that instead of falling back into bed and catching upon my sleep, I will go to the page of my bible. I thank God that he gave me the strength to go and opened up the pages, because I really needed to read his words. I have neglected my bible for about two weeks now, and that was not cool. When you admit that you need Jesus, you really come to see just how vital his words are for your hungry heart and soul. So, I thank God that he gives me the strength when I call.  Here is what I just read.

Romans 10

1 Dear brothers and sisters,* the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved.2 I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal.3 For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law.4 For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.* As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.

SALVATION IS FOR EVERYONE
5 For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands.*6 But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth).7 And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).”8 In fact, it says,

“The message is very close at hand;
it is on your lips and in your heart.”*

And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.”*12 Jew and Gentile* are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him.13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.”*
14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”*
16 But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “LORD, who has believed our message?”*17 So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.18 But I ask, have the people of Israel actually heard the message? Yes, they have:

“The message has gone throughout the earth,
and the words to all the world.”*

19 But I ask, did the people of Israel really understand? Yes, they did, for even in the time of Moses, God said,

“I will rouse your jealousy through people who are not even a nation.
I will provoke your anger through the foolish Gentiles.”*

20 And later Isaiah spoke boldly for God, saying,

“I was found by people who were not looking for me.
I showed myself to those who were not asking for me.”*

21 But regarding Israel, God said,

“All day long I opened my arms to them,
but they were disobedient and rebellious.”*

This past Sunday was very important for me. I have let the spirit of Jesus who I have accepted in my soul become dormant, and Sunday I had to ask god to stir up my passion. Romans 10 was a Chapter in the bible that my pastor spoke about, and so it was what I wanted to read this morning. I don’t know exactly why this scripture yet, but I do believe that it was for me this morning. So I will dwell on it and go back on it.  It is definitely important because it tells us that “Everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved” and I think that means not just for your salvation, but in any situation. I have failed to call o Jesus for help when I most needed, because I was battling with my own strength and that was a huge mistake. I ended up giving in. I should have cryed out, and willingly handed over my case. But I thank God for taking me back—imperfection and all. Thank you Father.
