Are you waiting for Father's day to call your dad? Are you waiting for Easter, Christmas? What are you waiting for? How many know that I am referring to your heavenly Father? He wants to talk to you daily, not just on holidays, or just when you need Him to take care of some disaster that is coming your way. Yes, He will be there for you through those times and ready to answer you when you call, but His heart wants to fellowship with your heart on a daily basis. He wants your praise and worship, not just your begging and pleading. AMEN!
When you pray, do you pray, asking for the same thing over and over? Or do you pray and ask once and then rest in the Lord, knowing that His word is true and He said that whenever you come to Him and ask in Jesus Name and believe in your heart that you will receive what you petition, that you will have whatever you ask?
Mark 11 v 24.....therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them....
If the way things are going in this world are getting you down, stop focusing on the world and start seeking Him, and spending time in His word. Read His word out loud so that you get the word into your hearing and then into your heart, so that you start speaking the word of God, instead of the responses of the world. AMEN! TURN OFF THE TV! PUT DOWN THE NEWSPAPER! Take a fast from the Media. AMEN!
What we put into our hearts is what we will speak when a crisis arrives.
Prov. 27 v 19....As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man....
PS 119 v 11....Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against you....
This scripture does not mean that the word is just hidden somewhere to keep it safe, no the word is deep into the heart so that when evil arises, you will recall what He says to do, so that you are walking in His will and not the will of your flesh. AMEN!
When we walk with the LORD, we stay on His paths. And He tells us that goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives. Does He just say some of the days, just on the good days? No, He says ALL the days of our lives. AMEN! The news just doesn't get any better than that.
PS 23 v 6....surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.....
PS 19 v 14....Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.....
Where does your strength come from? Your strength comes from the Joy of the Lord. Neh. 8 v 10.
What is going into your heart each day? Is it CNN, the StockMarket reports, Soap Operas, TV shows with murders, etc.?
What do you think will come out of your mouth? The things of your heart. Some people do not believe that you have what you say, but I believe every word of the Bible, not just what feels good to me. AMEN! What does the word say about the fruit of your lips?
Prov. 18 v 20-21....A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.....
What is coming out of your mouth? Are you speaking life or death?
Remember to walk with Him daily, to stay in His word daily, to feed on His promises daily. When you seek HIM, He will bring all His promises to you. You will not have to get down on your knees and beg and plea for the things you need or desire. No you will only have to ask but once while believing in your heart that what He says is true, and then rest in Him, knowing that your petition is answered. AMEN!
When we are seeking Him, and praising Him daily, not just asking for things from Him, but truly seeking Him to praise Him and Worship Him, we will be on the right path, we will be in His will. In Jeremiah 33, He says as long as there is a day and a night, so shall the covenant be. AMEN. There is still nightime and daytime at my house. HALLELUJAH!
Call on your Father today, and give Him your praise and worship. Give Him what He seeks, give Him your whole heart, soul and mind, and all other things will be added unto you. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
