Oh ABBA, FATHER!!!!

wpid-verseoftheday-2015-09-14.jpg.jpg

I am finding it hard to describe!  One of those special moments in time!  Are you looking?  Are you watching?  Are you listening?  Do you sometimes see in part?  Do you hear in part?  Tonight I felt like a child!  I felt like happy child!  I felt like a little girl and my daddy had given me a gift and I was so happy!  About an hour later my daddy handed me another gift!  WOW…that is so amazing I thought!  I smiled so big!  About an hour later I realized that there was actually ANOTHER gift within!  All three were given to me at the same time but I didn’t see them all at the same time.  As I kept thinking how amazing the first gift was and then realizing that the second part that went with it made it so complete!  I shared it with my friends…”see, look it is from God…it is not a coincidence”!  Then, as I continued to ponder on the whole thing and kept smiling and feeling so happy the third part came flooding into my soul!!!!  I was already convinced, but WOW!  How can ANYONE else doubt it now?  The last part was like the deal was signed, sealed and DELIVERED! 

I immediately hit my knees and cried out….OH THANK YOU ABBA…THANK YOU….

It is that moment you have been so longing for.  You needed your Father to lift your face up and smile and say….I am here…I have been…I have been listening, my sweet sweet daughter. 

Most of the time we know it.  We praise Him.  We thank Him.  Sometimes though you just need that special gift, that special touch!  Not every one will notice it or see it, but you KNOW that you KNOW!  Then these verses came to mind.

Psalm 46:10 (KJV)

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 43:10 (KJV)

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Isaiah 43:12 (KJV)

12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Isaiah 44:6 (KJV)

Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isaiah 45:18  (KJV)

18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

Isaiah 45:22 (KJV)

22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Isaiah 46:9 on (KJV)

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

So brothers and sisters, keep watch, keep listening and don’t miss the little things our Abba gives us!  All I can say is that I find myself wondering if those might just be some of the most special gifts of all!  It is all in the detail.  The details that can ONLY BE GOD!

Again….oh how I thank you Father!  Thank you for giving me the eyes to see!

Only God!

Jeremiah 4

King James Bible

God Calls Israel by His Promise

1If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.

2And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.

3For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

4Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

Disaster from the North

5Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in th

e land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities.

6Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

7The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.

8For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the fierce anger of the LORD is not turned back from us.

9And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the LORD, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder.

10Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul.

11At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,

12Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them.

13Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.

14O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?

15For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from mount Ephraim.

16Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.

17As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD.

18Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart.

Lamentation for Judah

19My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.

20Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.

21How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?

22For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

23I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

24I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

25I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

26I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

27For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

28For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

29The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.

30And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

31For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

Prayer from My Heart

image

Can’t wait to get to Heaven where I am imagining  that we will enjoy the simple sounds and colors and beauty of all of the Lord God’s creation just as HE meant for it to be.  Simple and yet nothing simple about His perfectly created universe.  It will be far better and far more than ANYTHING  that our minds could ever dream.

Praise the Lord God Almighty for He is good and mighty…He is our Creator, He is our Saviour, He is the First and the Last,  He is the Beginning and the End, He is the I AM, He is the Alpha and the Omega!  He is everything we need and if we have Him we are lacking NOTHING!
Thank you Jesus! Thank you Lord for lifting the vail from my eyes so that I might see.  Continue the work You have started in me. You are the Potter and I am the clay so continue daily to mold me and make me who You desire me to be.  I pray You will open my ears so that I might hear the voice of only my good shepherd each and every day of this life and that I might have boldness to follow You and Your leading.  That I would care only about pleasing You.  That what this world and the people of this world think of me would matter not, that those things would be so overshadowed by Your glory that I wouldn’t even think about them and what they think but only what my King desires of me.

May my faith continue to grow, finally lacking nothing.   As Abraham’s faith grew and he believed and yet did not fully have the faith to trust you to take care of everything on his journey in the beginning and yet he continued to grow and he fully trusted You with his son Issac that he LOVED so much and was willing to follow You no matter the cost.  May I one day have that kind of faith.  I won’t kid myself and say that I do because I only hope and pray I have the strength that can only come from You in order that I might be able to stand firm against any and all evil that comes against me.  Not by my strength but by the might and strength that comes from my Creator my God, my King!   In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray,  AMEN.

My New Year’s Resolution (I will call it a goal.)

Dear Heavenly Father,  I will need Your help daily as I always do.  I admit and know I can’t get past a moment in any day without You.  You are the glue that keeps me and keeps all the things in my life held together.  Even on the days it feels like it is crumbling because I know You are there.  It is not me that is crumbling but it is only the world around me. In Psalms 91:1 your word says:  Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High WILL rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I praise you Lord God and I ask You to help me stay focused on You and Your goodness and that is how I  might be able to walk in Your ways and others will see Your glory in my life and around me no matter what my circumstances.  In the powerful name of My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ I ask and pray , AMEN. 

Psalm 115:1
Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
COMMENTARY
The KJV says, “but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake”. It is important that all of us as believers give God the glory as we experience His presence, power, and love in and through our lives and the lives of others. The truth is that the glory belongs given to God, because it is rightly His and it is Him orchestrating the goodness, the mercy, and who offered His unfailing love to save all those who would believe in Him. As we glory in the name of Jesus, others may come to know Him, and will praise Him!

The Lord Jesus is Coming!

Don’t lose hope!

2 Peter 3:9

9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Praise God for His patients for without it I would not have been saved!

Revelation 3:11

11 I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.

Keep Hope Alive

Keep near the Lord. Draw nearer today than you were yesterday.  May God have mercy on us all.

Colossians 1:21-23
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.  But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation — if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
Commentary
Even the Jews had corrupted what it meant to believe in God. Much of the leadership had lost their way and continued leading people in wrong directions. Jesus Christ came displaying the heart of a servant to even death on a cross, as well as claiming deity; He called Himself God. Through Christ is a radical new birth into God’s grace and mercy – and the new birth is freely given to us, paid for by Christ. The challenge today is to live firmly grounded in the hope we have in Christ no matter what comes. He is your rock and fortress, stand firm!
