Precious Father we thank You for watching over us all through the week. Thank You for mercies truly undeserving bestowed upon us. You are wonderful, so beautiful and powerful to Your children glory and adoration belong to You alone in Jesus Name. We will exalt You Lord for all You have given us and overflowing blessings in our lives and situation.
Beloved, the Name of the Lord is a strong tower. I have use this so often that you might as well in your sub consciousness be asking what is going on. Truly when you run under the shadow of the Most High God; You will be truly be safe.
Mercy undeserving is what the death on the cross of my Lord Jesus has done for you and I. we are not worthy but only a word from the Lord settles it all. Praise God!
Are you need of mercy, then read through and the love of God in your life? Do you desire love? You have to read to be reassured that Jesus truly loves you. Are in dare need of favour? Beloved, the mercy of God will take you to your desired height and uphold you with His Right Hand. Praise Jesus!
Our Lord of Jesus did it all on the cross; that old rugged cross that save a wretch like me. His death on the cross broke the barrier to the holies of Holy, the inner court of the Lord. Glory be to God for this wondrous work, Praise the Lord.
Beloved, do you trust in the Lord? His mercy shall compass you. Let’s discover more:
“He that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.” Ps. 32:10
O fair reward of trust! My Lord, grant it me to the full! The truster above all men feels himself to be a sinner; and lo, mercy is prepared for him: he knows himself to have no deservings, but mercy comes in, and keeps house for him on a liberal scale. o Lord, give me this mercy, even as I trust in thee!
Observe, my soul, what a bodyguard thou hast! As a prince is compassed about with soldiery, so art thou compassed about with mercy. Before and behind, and on all sides, ride these mounted guards of grace. We dwell in the center of the system of mercy, for we dwell in Christ Jesus.
O my soul, what an atmosphere dost thou breathe! As the air surrounds thee, even so does the mercy of thy Lord. To the wicked there are many sorrows, but to thee there are so many mercies that thy sorrows are not worth mentioning. David says, “Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” In obedience to this precept my heart shall triumph in God, and I will tell out my gladness.
As thou hast compassed me with mercy, I will also compass thine altars, O my God, with songs of thanksgiving!
Yes! With songs of thanksgiving will we encompass the altars of our God. Praise the Lord! Beloved much are we going accomplish through obedience. If Christ bid you to abide in His love, why do less? Let’s keep going:
Jesus Christ Bids Us, “Abide In My Love”
A lot easier said than done!
Remember the story about the guy who falls over the cliff, grabs a branch and cries out, “Help, is there anyone up there?” God calls down, “It’s Me, God. What do you want?” To which the man replies, “Help me out of here!” God: “Let Go… Trust Me.” And the man responds, “Is there anyone else up there?”
Obedience, the prerequisite to ABIDING IN HIS LOVE, is simply “letting go” of our choices and adhering to His, just as Jesus obeyed the Father and thereby ABODE IN HIS LOVE:
“If you keep My commandments, you will ABIDE IN MY LOVE, just as I have kept My Father‘s commandments, and ABIDE IN HIS LOVE.” (John 15:10)
The more insidious sins that we resist “letting go” of are usually the ones that reside in that private domain of our lives slightly beneath the surface; subtle sins which still allow us the luxury of maintaining the facade of Christian respectability:
- A smug sense of superiority amidst our worldly successes.
- Mentally writing people off who no longer matter in furthering our career or status.
- Greedy control over our
- Satisfaction over beating out the other guy in a competitive bid.
- Secretly harboring sins that pander to our
Christ’s example of obedience toward His Father was immediate, unequivocal and enduring, and cut to the very core of the Lordship issue. It is this standard to which He is calling us:
“My Father, if it is possible, let this cup (the cross) pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as Thou wilt.” (Matthew 26:39) With this surrender He went to the cross.
Obedience, the “letting go” of our will, means giving God TOTAL ACCESS to that private domain of our lives where those secret sins reside.
To continue pandering covert sins while maintaining a facade of Christian respectability is a high price to pay for missing HIS ABIDING LOVE.
Beloved, let us let go of the sins that easily entangle us and hinder us from enjoying the peace and love of God. let this season we are remembering the sufferings of our Lord Jesus be a period of reflection and a moment of sober reflection on those teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ to his disciples and make us better Christian indeed in Jesus Name.
Come up hither says the Lord. Beloved, when the Lord bid you come do not delay and it will be well with your soul. Abide in his love through obedience and see the glory of God comes down up you and take you to your desire end. Arise beloved and come hither, delay no more.
May the Lord bless you as you mediate of the teachings of our Jesus in this season. Have a loving weekend, see you next week by God’s grace.
Remain blessed in the Lord
