Always on my lips
1 Peter 5:6-7
"humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting
all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you."
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests
be made known to God. And the peace of God, which
surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus."
"confess your sins to one another, and pray for one
another so that you may be healed. The effective
prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much."
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
The face of the Lord is against evildoers,
To cut off the memory of them from the earth.
The righteous cry, and the Lord hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
*What a treasure we have to be able to cry out to our great God and King!
We can talk with Him any time, we can share our deepest hurts along with our most precious joys.
He hears us. He is with us. He cares for us. He loves us.
When we feel like He is not listening to us, we are the ones who are wrong in our thinking. Our feelings should never be our barometer. God's Word is our Barometer. We need to find His truth in His Word not in our feelings.
He loves us so. He loved us so much that His only Son gave His life so that we may live and live eternally!
As His child choose to talk with Him often. Don't wait for a crisis. Talk with Him through each day while things are good and praise His Name for your day, your life, His goodness...
When you are use to talking with Him through each day it will be natural to turn to Him at every instant.
How very blessed are the children of God!
Praise the LORD! Glory to His Name! May we be found faithful!
