Psalm 35:27-28 NKJV

Psalm 35:27-28 NKJV
Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, "Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant." [28] And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness And of Your praise all the day long.

How beautiful my LORD my God! By Your grace may I Your praise be continually be on my tongue!

I asked you for reassurance and you provided. I thank you for placing this Christmas season on my heart as an opportunity to speak of you. While I did not as boldly as I ought knowing the time is evil, you have affirmed my intentions and brought encouragement and peace to my heart. I thank you my God. 12.22.12

When I consider the eternal weight of these verses I lose my breathe &my heart breaks for those who refuse to consider their place before a holy God. "(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law... are a law unto themselves: Which show the work of the law written in their hearts... In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men."

"God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him, submit to His authority, and regulate all the details of our lives by His holy precepts and commandments." AW Pink

(AMP)Hosea 6:3
Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him. His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the heavy rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.

1 John 4:4-6
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. [5] They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. [6] We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Oh my omniscient Father, Your love, Your grace is my refuge. You are my only necessity. You are my heart's desire.

My precious Lord, I thank You for the discerning Spirit and the clarion call of Your Word! Please, I ask that You will fill me with boldness to speak Your Truth.

1 Peter 1:13-16

"Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."

My precious Lord, fill me with Your Spirit! Bestow upon me Your grace, Your wisdom, and the strength needed to accomplish Your will.

Titus 2:11-14

"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works."

Abba, Father! Purify me. May my meager sufferings bring glory and honor to Your name.

John 10:11, 17-18

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.... Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father."

A love uncomprehendable; a debt unpayable.

My Redeemer, I am no more than dust. You have all of me.

On the Counter Culturalism of the Kingdom of God

Lord, your greatness never seizes to amaze me.  The wisdom You have bestowed upon me is immense.

I asked of You, and You provide; time and time again.

You have given me eyes to see and hears to hear.  I now understand the recent trials and how I am to proceed.  It is humility over exaltation.

James 4
1 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

Shall I speak up?  What is my motive to speak up?  Is is pure, or is it pride.

As I've heard it said:

Humility + Servant hood = Greatness

True greatness is taking the lowest place.  Lord I will follow the example You have laid out before me. 

Luke 14:11
Proverbs 29:23

Knowing a new Knowledge

This past week has brought many peaks and many valleys.  But through it all, Your faithfulness shown through ever brighter my dear Saviour.

I fell on my face daily, hourly even, and sometimes to the point of wallowing. 

With every valley, there was a new mountain summit reached. 

You have elevated me to a new plateau through the trials that compounded within the last number of days, both at work and otherwise.

You have revealed to me a deeper depth.

I now know a new knowing.

Praise be to the Lord in all things, forever and ever!

Your Words:

Phil 2:12-13

Psalm 15:1-5

The Charactor of Those Who May Dwell with the LORD

LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the LORD; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.


My almighty Creator, may I walk a the straight path of a true follower.  May I not speak evil against my friend, as well as my foe.  Let all my ways honor You my Father.  Let my mind keep you ever present.  My spirit is willing, but my flesh... feeble, and utterly incapable; draw me closer to You. 

Mold me my Lord.  Mold me.

Psalm 14:1-7
The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.
The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call on the LORD?
There they are in great fear, For God is with the generation of the righteous.
You shame the counsel of the poor, But the LORD is his refuge.
Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD brings back the captivity of His people, Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.

Daily Reading - Psalm 13:1-6

Trust in the Salvation of the Lord

How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, Lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed against him"; Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved. 
But I have trusted in Your mercy; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the LORD, Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

All my relience is in the Lord.  When my personal resources are exhausted, the divine supernatural power of my all mightly God will intervine and save me from the wiles of this world.

My loving Father, my delight is in you!  Your blessings are aboundant in my life.  May I glorify You in all my weakness, and in all appearance of strength.

Daily Reading - Psalm 12:1-8

Man's Treachery and God's Consistancy

Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
They speak idly everyone with his neighbor; With flattering lips and a double heart they speak.
May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, And the tongue that speaks proud things,
Who have said, "With our tongue we will prevail; Our lips are our own; Who is lord over us?"
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, Now I will arise," says the LORD; "I will set him in the safety for which he yearns."
The words of the LORD are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times.
You shall keep them, O LORD, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.
The wicked prowl on every side, When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.


My Lord, You have given us prayer and petition to combat the lies of the evil. 

For You, Lord are our protection, our refuge from the vile, wicked heart.  I meditate on Your pure promises day and night.

2 Timothy 2:4

"No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier."

What soldier enters a battle with a television show on the forefront of his mind? Or a football game? Vanity? What about gossip? Why then do I? Why do we?

When a soldier enters the battlefield, I would believe his concern lies with being victorious.

How are we, as true believers in Jesus Christ any diffferent than that of a soldier?
Scripture implores us, as Christians to engage in the battle, and tells us to be watchful, with all perseverance and supplication.
How then can we be victorious? How can we stand against the wiles of the devil?
By taking up the whole armor of God.

You have made it crystal clear my Lord. But with every verse, it becomes clearer.

I kneel in utter submission before You.

2 Timothy 1:7

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

Through the indwelling holy spirit, we find our resources. His divine power has equipped us with effective, productive spiritual energy.

Let us not fall prey to the disctractions on this world. 

2 Timothy 4:3

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers."

Itching ears may be soothed by flattering tongues.  Just how prevalent in evangelical America is this?

Lord, you give your people eyes to see and ears to hear.  May we be set apart from the rest.

Sanctify us completely, may our whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
