2 Corinthians 1:21-22
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
Who makes us stand firm in Christ? It is God. This is not to say that we do not give effort at all, or should not take action when we see an unmet need, or despair or heartache. We should act on these occasions and we are compelled to by His Spirit in our hearts. That same Spirit is the deposit, sealing us in Christ and in right relationship with God. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit; He seeks to lead us in the way we should live.

Find 45 minutes to listen to this beautiful love story. When you listen go into your prayer room alone with Christ. Why you ask?
This love story told by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn sums up the entire bible. The entire love of our Savior.
*Your whole purpose.
*Your reason for your longing.
*Your heart will be filled with understanding.
So, if you have ever felt or currently feel any of the following….then I beg you to listen…..
*Not good enough?
*Searching, yet never finding that something that you cannot even put a name on?
*Depression seems to try to consume you?
*Angry and maybe you don’t even know why?
*Money is what you seek yet never is enough to fill the empty spot.
*You constantly buy something thinking it will fill the empty spot only to find that in 2 weeks or so the empty place returns yet again.
*You search for the place that you can feel you can finally belong? Yet, you still can’t find it. Search continues.
*Striving for perfection so you won’t be discarded?
*Trouble understanding the word of God and what He is trying to tell us through all of the different examples and parables.
If you know the Lord, you will love Him ALL the more after all of your deepest thoughts, known and unknown to you are revealed in a clearer picture. You will see all the love God has for all of us and the mystery of the bride and bridegroom tell us the beautiful story of the bible, the Holy Word of God written by men by the direction of the Holy Spirit. The bible is summed up here.
I pray you are as blessed as I was. I have listened to it 3 times this morning and know I will listen to it many more times in the future.
