Verse of the day (Psalm 3:2-6)
Lots of people have asked me to continue verse of the day and read what my thoughts are for that day. Thanks dave
Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” “Selah” But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. “Selah” I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
If I ever listen to other people and what they think of me ( even Christians) merely because I can fall into sin or appear as if I fell into sin to them from a misunderstood event or situation, then I will be off track from what the bible says about my relationship with God through Jesus.
I must hang on to what he says about me. He is a jealous God and wants me to call on him for every need and depend solely on him and focus only on him. He knows me and I must follow him in every area of my life. If I do that then what others think of me will repel off of me and never damage my relationship with Christ Jesus.
So when I look at anyone whether Christians or lost children of God I must never ever judge them and especially try hard not to hammer them on the head about how they choose to live. God will draw them and guide them not me. I can pray earnestly which is what I am asked of God. Pray with out ceasing.
So Dave, if you see someone in a blatant sin are you saying that you would not confront them?
Depending on what it is I would try very hard to avoid trying to do God’s work. It would have to be something that God is really leading me to do and even if he would lead me I would for sure pray very very hard about it before I get involved with another person’s affairs. Especially spiritual.
Now,,,, if someone is asking me for help, prayer or just to listen I praise God and give him the glory and show them the scripture and how it will help them back to him or save their souls but not my own words. God says to hide the words in your heart. Even if no bible is around me I can still quote them scriptures seated deep in my soul and God will call them to remembrance in a split second.
Prayer is powerful and I feel like sometimes we don’t give prayer enough time to do its work. When we pray for someone we feel needs your help we need not worried about how you will answer. Just Trust you will answer because he has hidden them in your hear and given you opportunity to witness to them.
I think sometimes we step ahead of prayer.
Hope is a fuel and we need to let hope do its work.
Fill up our hearts with Hope and keep our hearts full…….day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.
So do I really know the meaning of Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
