PSALMS 25:4-5 Make Your ways known to me, LORD; teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; I wait for You all day long. HCSB
Been thinking lately that when I leave this body and join Jesus and my Father God in heaven I sure don’t wanna be surprised at who they are. I’ve been thinking I want/need to keep this thought much more relevant in my daily going in and out … the thought that I need to make sure I’m not assuming I know God and what He thinks; to make sure I’m always stirring up my hunger to know Him better; to spend more time LETTING HIM reveal Himself to me. After all, He is Love & He is fathomless!
PSALMS 86:5,10,11,15 For You, Lord, are kind and ready to forgive, rich in faithful love to all who call on You … For You are great and perform wonders; You alone are God … Teach me Your way, Yahweh, and I will live by Your truth. Give me an undivided mind to fear Your name … You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in faithful love and truth. HCSB
I’m saying, “Teach me Lord. I set myself to be more teachable; to be more aware that there’s a great deal I don’t know about You … and that’s definitely an understatement … but I set myself to stir up my hunger to know You more every day; to be breaking away from patterns of complacency in me. I refuse to allow my own biases to cloud my understanding of You, people and situations; to be the one who’s frustrating Your plans and purposes. I, also, DEFINITELY wanna be more READY when we meet in Glory. I wanna just jump right into whatever is really happenin’. I’m asking for lots of Mercy and Grace to help me do this stirring and knowing; to be more teachable. Thank You. I take it. I have it, and I forgive. All in Jesus name.”
