Praise God. A lady I witnessed to on Friday night accepted the gospel and gave her life to Christ today in baptism. Continue Reading
Lord, thank You for putting into my heart the desire to know You deeper than ever before. The day I found You in my confessions was the day that You came for me and started me off on a new path. Where I once desired to be fulfilled in my own lusts and covetousness, You gave me better desires that led to true satisfaction for the soul. I no longer needed the things of this world that were temporary, but Your will sustained me. Once I knew that I would never take any of my earthly treasures with me in death, I began to build myself up with what would sustain me in heaven that mattered most. I no longer needed the best new phone, tablet, TV, or car, or more money, for You have given me exactly what I need in this new life. Your presence is what gives me the greatest joy of all, which is true happiness. I don't need imitators in life, but what is true and faithful. What honors You is what I look for. That is why I grasp onto Your Words in the Bible. It is the treasure that I have been looking for all my life. I don't know what my life would be like if You were not leading me through Your Words. They have become a lamp unto my feet and I have true direction now. Your counsel is so good for my soul. I could never know enough of Your precepts, for they satisfy every minute of my life. Your laws are like honey to the soul. To know Your will is what leads me to hope for things that never end. And Thank You Lord for leading me away from temptation these many days. You have become the armor of my life and I am able to stand against the enemy. Thank You for defending me against the evils of this world and the storms of life. I love You more than ever now. You are my Lord and my God, who saves. I trust in You, God, alone. Amen.
Psalm 119:140-142 (KJV)
140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
A life saved by the blood of Jesus is also a life of following in His ways. We do as He says because we love Him.
Accepting Jesus as Lord is the best thing I ever did in my life. My whole life is changed because of His mercy and grace.
I pray that these same desires to follow Jesus is yours also. Getting to know Him through daily Bible study and prayer is very important to our souls. Continue Reading
