Thank You for our grandson who was born 17 years ago today. How time has raced! Wow, that seems like a long time ago, yet also feels to have gone by at light speed. Then again, YOU have no time constraints; it’s like yesterday to You, or even tomorrow. Time is a funny manmade concept. It bears no influence on You, but You use it to have us relate to You. I love being in Your presence and talking with You anytime!! It is so satisfying!

                                            


You have blessed us with a wonderful family. Thank You Lord. You are so magnificent, glorious and loving!

How does He guide us? Many ways, and some are not easy.  One of my constant battles is pride. It reared its nasty head again the other night. Beginning of a new prayer group. I am not the leader, but I was acting like it. I stepped out in prayer thinking it was an inspiration, but later proved not to be. 'My prideful thought, 'I'm doing good' shamefully scooted through my thoughts.  I'd asked God to humble me, and well, He came through. I've learned to wait and be sure the Holy Spirit is speaking before opening my mouth. 


I pray for Your power, Lord,  to support me through every day,  whether it is facing  joy filling green valleys or difficult mountains to climb. May my arms and legs be staunch and sturdy to go wherever You lead; and may my heart always discard fear and pride; You keep my body protected free from any attack of the enemy. You are my God ever faithful and always loving me (and even when it is a hard lesson to learn)

 

Proverbs 4:12-13 (Amp) When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.


 Holy Spirit I humbly ask You to take me where You will. Be the words that come from my mouth, the actions my body performs. I am Yours. In these days of masked confusion and distrust, I respectfully ask for wisdom to lead and Your love to be my guiding light. I command the spirit of pride to cease and desist its assiggnment over me! AMEN.

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.
