Testimony of Trust

Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplication. The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
Psalms 28:6‭-‬7 NASB

Who do you turn to when life becomes overwhelming? In whom do you trust with all the pieces of your life – the good, the bad, the ugly, the disappointments, the struggles, the highs, the lows? Has He heard the voice of your supplication because you cried out to Him? If you do, He will help you. Your heart will exult your God and you can’t help but to thank Him.

But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
Psalms 3:3 NASB

🌹He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the Lord.
Psalms 40:3 NASB

The Lord Is . . .

The Lord is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them.
The Lord keeps all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.
Psalms 145:17‭-‬21 NASB

🌹God bless your day.

Are You Ready?

Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Joel 3:13‭-‬14 NASB

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.” Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.
Revelation 14:14‭-‬16 NASB

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Revelation 14:17‭-‬19 NASB

Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the Lord is coming; Surely it is near,
Joel 2:1 NASB

Are you ready? The valley of decision is now. The harvest is coming.

The Living God

How lovely are Your dwelling places, O Lord of hosts! My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 84:1‭-‬2 NASB

🌹 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!
Psalms 84:10‭-‬12 NASB

I Love You, Lord

I love the Lord, because He hears My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalms 116:1‭-‬2 NASB

My God:

“I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech. Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me. Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O Lord, God of truth.
Psalms 18:1 NASB, Psalms 17:6‭-‬8 NASB, Psalms 31:2‭-‬3‭, ‬5 NASB

🌹I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. Since I am afflicted and needy, Let the Lord be mindful of me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God.
Psalms 40:1‭, 2 NASB

Judges

He said to the judges, “Consider what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the Lord who is with you when you render judgment. Now then let the fear of the Lord be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the Lord our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality or the taking of a bribe.” Whenever any dispute comes to you from your brethren who live in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and ordinances, you shall warn them so that they may not be guilty before the Lord, and wrath may not come on you and your brethren. Thus you shall do and you will not be guilty.
2 Chronicles 19:6‭-‬7‭, ‬10 NASB

Pray for our judges.

🌹Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is You who possesses all the nations.

Psalm of Thanksgiving Pt. 1

Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
1 Chronicles 16:8‭-10

When someone does something nice or special for you, what is your response? Usually there is a “thank you”, sometimes a smile with the nod of your head (like when a stranger holds a door for you), or even a hug given in thanksgiving. You acknowledge the person and often you tell others of the good deed, blessing you received.

When God blesses you, do you do the same? Thank Him and tell others of His goodness and blessing?
I find that the more I praise God and thank Him the more I seek Him. The more I seek Him, the more I notice all the blessings He bestows on me everyday. The more blessings I see, the more I praise and thank Him. The more I want to tell the world of His goodness, His grace, His love, His salvation. The joy of the Lord is my strength. So. . .

🌹Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually. Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done, His marvels and the judgments from His mouth, O seed of Israel His servant, Sons of Jacob, His chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
1 Chronicles 16:11-14

Thirst

As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?
Psalms 42:1‭-‬2 NASB

These verses never get old. O how I thirst for God, the living God, longing to appear before Him. Longing for my faith to be made sight. But until that day I’ll walk with Him, serve Him, love Him with my whole being, with all I am and all I have.

🌹 Do you have a longing for God?
