2Come and rest at the feet of Jesus. Come and eat at His table, that you may be filled. No longer be thirsty but drink freely. Jesus offers us a 4“well of water springing up into everlasting life”. Come unto Him that you may be fed with His awesome presence. Be filled through His matchless love. Come to know the awesome power of God. He is mighty to save. No one can do such a thing as God. The acts of our almighty God are magnificent. Can anyone know such things unless He has been saved? Nobody can see such great things unless they have first experienced it. To know the mysteries of God is to know Him personally. To be a spectator and not a part of His plan is not the way. 5The Bible teaches us to not only listen but to also be doers of God’s words. If you just let the words of God penetrate your hearts, you would never be the same again. What you once thought was joy will seem like nothing compared to the love of God. The world offers temporary pleasure but God delivers joy that never ends. We are always welcome to feast with the King of glory. He invites everyone to come and join Him. 3Are you willing to come to God’s table and feast? 2All it takes is a humble heart and you will find rest. An open mind can shed light into God’s glorious plan. All those that come to God’s table will know that He is all merciful. He is all just. There is no sin that we have committed that He will not forgive. All things can be restored. Everyone in addiction can be set free. The Lord is the greater healer. He is able and willing to heal our hearts, if we might come to Him. 1“Awake up” from your slumber and discover the goodness of God.
God has spoken to my mind that I might see His glorious presence. I gave the Lord free access to my heart and have not looked back. I was once blind but can now see. The veil of deception has come off my face that I might see the goodness of God. Every day that I seek the Lord, I am blessed. God showers down, from the heavens, His blessings upon me and those I serve. The greatest blessing of all is God’s forgiveness. For I was once a vile sinner. Wickedness was my life. I truly had my heart set on the wrong things. Oh the shame and guilt I felt, in those trying times. I was never truly happy. I always needed more to sustain my lusts. What is most amazing is, a life like mine has changed. After I gave my heart to Jesus, I was no longer battling with sin and temptation alone. For Jesus was helping fight my battles with me. The Spirit of God came over me and has helped me live a new life for Jesus. I could not break free of my addictions on my own, but Jesus could. All I needed was to put my trust in Him and He broke the bonds. I was no longer a slave to sin but a soldier for Christ. Thank You Lord. What a merciful God we follow. As David said, 1“For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.” Your love has put a fire in my heart and now I want all the world to know that Jesus saves. May the hearts of all people be fixed upon things that matter. We will all soon die but as for me, 1“My heart is fixed, O God”, on Your presence. To the end of my days, will I serve You. 1“I will sing and give praise” to your glorious Name. I rejoice for You are the meaning of love. If I know anything above love, it is because You offered it to me first.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, thank You for Your kindness. Thank You for Your love. Thank You for forgiving a vile sinner, such as I. Your mercy gives me rewewed hope. I know that I am forgiven and that leads me to do greater things for Your kingdom. Your love has awakened my soul to serve You. You have welcomed me at Your table, though I come as a sinner. You didn’t cast me aside but helped me in. I had many things that pulled me aside but You ushered me in by the hand. You never left my side, though temptations kept coming in. Thank You for being there for me when I needed You the most. Every day that I seek You, You are there. You never forsake me. If I have come to know Your matchless love, it is because You have graciously shown it to me. You have put Your arms around me that I might be loved. I am grateful to know You. You are mighty to save. I love to be in Your presence. May more people come to know You as their personal Savior. I love You. Amen.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
