“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

Words – Sink Deep

November 1, 2007

Then he added, “Son of man, let all my words sink deep into your own heart first. Listen to them carefully for yourself.”
Ezekiel 3:10

Parted His Garments

October 18, 2007

And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matthew 27:35 (KJV)

I read this and something within me stirred. When I think of the garments being parted I think of how each of us have been given robes because of Christ who gave to each of us. We are clothed in fine linen white and clean (Rev. 19:14). Christ put on the robe that was dipped in blood so that we might be made clean in Him.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 (KJV)

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19:13 (KJV)

Thank you Adonai!

Set My Face

September 26, 2007

Oh that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves.
Isaiah 48:18

The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know what to say to all these weary ones. Morning by morning he wakes me and opens my understanding to his will.
Isaiah 50:4

Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be dismayed. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will triumph.
Isaiah 50:7

Instead, there must be spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness – righteous, holy and true.
Ephesians 4:23-24

My prayer for today:
Thank you Father for what you have done in my life. Morning by morning you wake me and open my understanding to your will. I will continually renew my mind because you have given me your Holy Spirit. My thoughts and my attitudes are lining up with your word. I am setting my face like a stone — determining to do your will. Teach me to see, hear and do your commands so that I may have peace like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves. Thank you that I display to others a new nature because I am yours created in your likeness – righteous, holy and true. For I know with you all things are possible and I will triumph for all the good things that you have placed within me. Thank you Adonai! In Jesus name I pray. Amen — and it is so.

Stand For Truth

September 13, 2007

For we cannot oppose the truth, but must always stand for the truth.
2 Corinthians 13:8

Out of a Stump…

September 12, 2007

Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot – yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. And the Spirit of the LORD will rest on him – the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. He will delight in obeying the LORD. He will never judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay. He will defend the poor and the exploited. He will rule against the wicked and destroy them with the breath of his mouth. He will be clothed with fairness and truth.
Isaiah 11:1-5

When I read about the stump I think of something that was  dead. Most stumps have been cut down from trees that were either weak or dead. We were once stumps that were dead to Christ. But the Spirit of God caused the spirit that He placed within us to sprout out from that stump into a life with Christ.

We have been called to the new Branch bearing fruit. We have the fruit of the Spirit within us. Below is a reminder of what the fruit of the Spirit is for you today. Write them on your heart for there is no law against these things:

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • patience
  • kindness
  • goodness
  • faithfulness
  • gentleness
  • self-control

(Galatians 5:22-23)

Fear

September 11, 2007

Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else.
Isaiah 8:13
