There is a need to get things off our chest with God. Even in the middle of the night, while waking up from our slumber, we give Him thanks. We do this in order to get things off our chests with God. Because He has done so much for us during the day, it is now our time to remember Him and give Him thanks He deserves before sleeping. This shows our gratitude towards God. His judgments are righteous and holy, and those who believe in Him give Him much respect. This is done in a way that shows how much we love and obey the Lord. This is what the fear of God does to a person. Jesus is our King, and we know of His wrath towards the wicked, and therefore live for Him on a daily basis. His mercy is for everyone, although few people reach out to Him for forgiveness. David also said, “At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts. The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.” (Psalm 119:62-64) God’s mercy is real, for those who come to Him.
God deals well with His people. He can see who is for Him and who is against Him. Therefore, our treasures are built up in heaven as we live for the Lord, as well as attain many blessings in this life and the next because of God’s great love for us. As we have lived according to God’s Words, we are blessed. These blessings can come from the giftings of the Holy Spirit, giving us new talents that can be used for His kingdom, and many other things. And while in the harvest, we ask God to unfold unto us His judgments and wisdom. This way we can share this knowledge with others. We were once willful sinners, but now we are true to God and His word. Lastly, David said, “thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Lord, according unto thy word. Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments. Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.” (Psalm 119:65-67) You each have your own story to tell people. How God came into your life, of which brought you out of darkness and into His light. So share this testimony with others. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to worship You as their King. Not just a person they cannot see that they pray to but in reality is done to please man. I often wonder if people who pray do so because they believe You are listening or simply please the masses in general. Therefore, I wonder if most of these people have not had an encounter with You that has changed their lives. A life-changing experience in Your harvest that would change the way people think about You and also pray. If we loved You, then we would desire to get our praise, worship, and thanks made known when You do something in our lives. It could be telling people, and also telling You how much we appreciative You. As for me, I cannot express my gratitude for saving me once, twice, three times, or even a billion times. You are a God of grace and someone that does not forget us when we are in trouble. Surely, when we pray, You come to our rescue and give us the peace we need to go on in life. I love You, Jesus. I pray that people’s prayer lives will increase in their sincerity in calling upon Your Name. Amen.
