The fear if the Lord, is the beginning of Wisdom. That initial fear of what we deserve, turns into devotion for what we didn’t get. Our God is truly an awesome God.
Great and mighty, are your works Oh Lord. It is you who hold all things together. It is you who created the foundations of the earth. It is you who hold the stars in place and keep the oceans from covering the whole earth. Most wonderful, is that you love us, in spite of our imperfect ways, yet Jesus made us whole. You call us adopted sons and daughters. In all these troubled times, we are truly blessed.
It is our HEART, that the Lord is interested in, not checking off a box, that WE did something right before him. When we humbly bow down before him, he lifts us up! It is him who must work through us, not We, ourselves. Thank you Jesus, that you gave us your helper, your Holy Spirit, and your word, to guide and direct us. ❤️
Our slate is wiped clean, there is no memories of wrongs committed, we are free from the bondage of sin, our canvas is empty to start new! Jesus has taken the judgement off our backs for the wrongs done. Do we Believe this? Then let’s start this year with hope, for a new tomorrow, both now, and for all eternity. God is still on the Throne.
When we are weak, then we are strong, through your Holy Spirit, that you sent for us, Jesus. Thank you!
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;
