2 Samuel 22:2-4 MSG

God is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. My God—the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout; My mountaintop refuge, he saves me from ruthless men. I sing to God the Praise-Lofty, and find myself safe and saved. —

 

Words to God:

You, God, are the bedrock support under me and within me; thus I can stand in strength and fierceness against the enemy. You have awakened me to Your mighty presence this morning. You lead me and guide me in all I do; You protect me; You empower me. I shall obey You and be dauntless for Your will. I come against any mindset of fear or excuses; I choose to abolish procrastination from my life, and I shall complete even the difficult tasks today! You are here to help me. Help me be responsible; give me an awareness of every situation I face and the power of prayer to bring God-answers into it. I claim Your protection upon myself, my family, my belongings, and my finances. You are my Father, and I am under Your powerful protection! Let Your peace reign.

 

God’s response:

Know that I treasure you as my precious child, and My eye is always upon you. I watch over you with care and concern, as a loving father watches over his child. You are safe with Me. Come, walk and talk with Me in the high place of My presence, and your journey will surely end in victory.

 

Prayer:

Thank You, my resplendent and magnificent God! I have a sturdy determination to be the person You created me to be. You are my bedrock support reinforcing me and enabling me to do Your will. I am determined to fearlessly follow You; for I am assured that with You, my life shall fulfill its purpose. I'm constantly guarded against evil, and I can always run to You for help, because You are my mountain refuge, my castle of protection, my ever-faithful God.

 

 Zephaniah. 3:17

The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.


 Thank You Lord for Your expressive, intense and passionate love for me! The power in this love is fierce. Endow me with this same fierce love for your people. Jesus, it is the love that caused you to leave your divinity behind and come to earth as a man. It was necessary for us to live lives knowing and dwelling in the Father’s presence. It was necessary to open the doors to heaven for us. Sin could never enter; so you had to make a way to cleanse sin from us. So as a man you took on the sin of mankind and suffered the extreme torment in your body and in your soul that sin’s ugliness spewed out. You suffered that we might live lives of victory on earth and spend eternity in victorious resurrection joy.

Thank You!

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.
