Blessings of Trust

But he who trusts in the Lord, lovingkindness shall surround him.
Psalm 32:10b

Are you trusting in God? God says if you are then lovingkindness shall surround you. God also blesses those who give attention to the word.

He who gives attention to the word will find good, And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20 NASB

Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
Psalms 32:10‭b-‬11 NASB

Do you consider yourself a righteous person? Those who are clothed in the righteousness of Christ will rejoice, being glad in Him. He is our refuge.

But let the righteous be glad; let them exult before God; Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
Psalms 68:3 NASB

Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones, And give thanks to His holy name.
Psalms 97:12 NASB

🌹The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him; And all the upright in heart will glory.
Psalms 64:10 NASB

The more you know the word, the more you will trust the Word, Jesus. The bigger your trust grows, the bigger your joy and gladness grows turning into praise, glory and thankfulness to our God.

May the righteousness of Christ abiding in you bring you much joy, gladness, and thankfulness as you trust in Him.

To God be the glory!!

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28‭-‬30 NASB

I am going to take the advice of my Lord and go to Him. I am weary, burdened, loaded down, yes, heavy-laden. I will take the yoke of my God upon myself and learn from Him so I may find rest for my soul and continue to be a servant for the good of God’s Kingdom. He promises that He will satisfy the weary ones and refresh, fill, everyone who languishes. I am seeking God’s righteousness and I know He will satisfy my soul. Just as Jesus would go seek time with the Father, I will be taking some time to learn, seek, and rest in the Lord.
Jeremiah 31:25/Matthew 5:6 NASB

God bless your ministry, your souls, your time and I hope to be returning soon refreshed, renewed, restored.
God bless you.

Glorify God

For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
1 Corinthians 6:20 NASB

God, how do I glorify You in my body? By Your mercies I present my body a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to You, which is my spiritual service of worship. I pray that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Jesus Christ will be exalted in my body. This is my earnest expectation and hope. I pray You will keep me from presenting the members of my body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but help me to present myself to You, God, as alive from the dead, and my members as instruments of righteousness to You. Glory to Your name I pray, amen.
Romans 12:1/Philippians 1:20/Romans 6:13 NASB

🌹Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.
Hebrews 13:15 NASB

Response to “Living Water”

“Living Water” from December 16, 2022 devotion, Isaiah 12:3 mentions drawing water from the springs of salvation. Today we look at the response of those who draw this “Living Water “.

And in that day you will say, “Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that (proclaim to them that) His name is exalted.” Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things (gloriously); Let this be known throughout the earth.
Isaiah 12:4-5 NASB

Oh Lord, I give You thanks as I call upon Your name. Out of gratefulness for my salvation I will make known Your deeds among the peoples; proclaiming that Your name is exalted!! I pray one generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. I pray men will speak of the power of Your awesome acts, and I will tell of Your greatness. I pray Your people will eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness and will shout joyfully of Your righteousness. All Your works shall give thanks to You, O Lord, And Your godly ones shall bless You. They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power; to make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom. Again, I thank You for the privilege of participating in Your kingdom growth. Use me, Lord, I pray. May You be exalted in my actions to Your glory, amen.
Psalms 105:1/Psalms 145:4‭, ‬6‭-‬7‭, ‬10‭-‬12 NASB

How will you respond?

🌹O sing to the Lord a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. The Lord has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.
Psalms 98:1‭-‬2 NASB

The Therefore

Practice these things and you will not stumble“: 2 Peter 1:10

Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence (virtue), and in your moral excellence (virtue), knowledge,
2 Peter 1:5‭ NASB

Applying all diligence! The New Testament for Everyone says, “you should strain every nerve”. Our faith is fragile. Faith isn’t a one time decision, it is a constant that needs nourished. Nourished with truths that distinguish right and wrong so we can express and convey right conduct, walk in righteousness. Jesus is our righteousness and His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
2 Peter 1:3/Colossians 2:3 NASB

Apply the Word of God. God’s word is the moral compass of moral virtue. In the Word of God is the knowledge of the righteousness of Christ. I believe that God’s word has the power to transform our moral compass and fill us with the knowledge of Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him.

🌹Are you diligently reading God’s word on a daily basis?

You Will Know. Don’t Wait.

I am reading through Ezekiel right now and got curious as to how many times it is written, “Know that I am the Lord”. It may be preceded by “They will”. . . Or “You will”. . . Or “The nations will”. . . Or “Israel will”. . .
63 times in Ezekiel out of 77 in the entire Bible.

God desires His creation to know Him. Why? So He can pour out blessings, the greatest of these being salvation so we can spend eternity with Him instead of eternity in Hell, separated from the One who created us to know Him.

“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me.
Isaiah 43:10 NASB

There is no other God. There is no other way. Eternity awaits those who seek eternal happiness, joy, peace, etc. found only through belief in Jesus Christ.

You need to know that one day you will bow and “know that I am the Lord” whether you choose to now in surrender and humbleness or later when you are judged and sentenced to eternal life in Hell. Remember, the choice is yours. You have no one to blame but yourself.

Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.’ ”
Isaiah 44:8 NASB

Who has performed and accomplished it, Calling forth the generations from the beginning? ‘I, the Lord, am the first, and with the last. I am He.’ ”
Isaiah 41:4 NASB

Pray: I confess that there is but one God, through whom I can be saved and I want to know that You are the Lord. Forgive me of my unbelief and living in sin. Help me to follow Your ways my Lord by seeking You continually through Your word, the Bible, and to seek a Bible believing church so I can know You more and grow in understanding and wisdom of Your ways. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

🌹I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance.

3 John 11

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.
3 John 11 NASB

God, it is sometimes so hard to live a godly life when all around me evil resides. I see it, hear it, and sometimes I am the receiver of it. I pray Lord God to be strengthened by the power of the blood to depart from evil and do good; to seek peace and pursue it so I will abide forever in Your righteousness. Help me Jesus to imitate good and practice righteousness as You have demonstrated. I want to be known as Your child by walking in Your righteousness Jesus practicing until I see You in all Your glory. Amen.

1 John 3:11-12

For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another; not as Cain, who was of the evil one and slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil, and his brother’s were righteous.
1 John 3:11‭-‬12 NASB

Holy God of righteousness. You are all that is good. I worship You.
The battle between the righteous and the evil rages on. There are those who repay evil for good, opposing simply because of those who follow what is good. Jesus, You were sought and killed because You spoke truth, truth from the Father.
Jesus, my Lord and Teacher, thank You for showing me how to humbly love my brothers and sisters. You knelt before Your disciples and washed their feet. You said, “Truly, truly, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them”. Help me Holy Spirit to follow the example of Jesus and wash the feet of other believers — humbly putting them before myself. I pray Your extravagant love overflows to others through me. In Your Holy name and for Your glory, amen.
Psalms 38:20/John 8:40‭/John 13:12‭-‬17 NASB

1 John 2:28-29

Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away (be put to shame before Him) from Him in shame at His (presence) coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born (begotten) of Him. 1 John 2:28‭-‬29 NASB

🌹Holy, holy, holy are You, Lord God, my righteousness, my confidence. Abide in me, Jesus.You are my life and on that day when You appear and my faith is made sight may I be bold and confident, not shrinking away in shame when I am revealed with You in glory. For whoever is ashamed of You and Your words in this adulterous and sinful generation, You, Son of Man, will also be ashamed of them when You come in the glory of Your Father with the holy angels.”

Father, forgive me for wanting to speak from myself, seeking my own glory. I pray I will seek Your glory, the One who sent Jesus, for He is truth, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. I stand bold in Your name Lord God, knowing I was born again, not of blood nor the will of flesh, nor the will of man, but of You, God. And because of this I will see Your kingdom O God and bow in praise before Your Almighty throne of victory! To Your righteousness and glory I pray in Jesus name, amen. Colossians 3:4/Ephesians 3:12/Mark 8:38/John 7:18/John 1:13/John 3:3 NASB

1 John 2:8,10

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:8‭, ‬10 NASB

Holy, righteous, irreproachable, just God. You are worthy of reverent praise for You are sinless, matchless and a faithful God!
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin”? Certainly not I Lord. Forgive me for every time I think that I am able or the “one” who is without sin, self-righteous in my own eyes and yet deceiving myself. For it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one”. Cover me in the righteousness of my Savior who died for me so that I may walk in righteousness for His name sake. I have received His testimony and set my seal to this, that God is true. Your word is in me and I confess Your righteousness as the truth for all mankind. You are not a liar. Your word is truth! Hallelujah!! Amen.
Proverbs 20:9/Romans 3:10/John 3:33 NASB

🌹Thank you, Father, for the Word, Jesus, living in me through Your Holy Spirit!
