As I contemplate all the things that I desire, and don’t yet have, I am reminded that only you satisfy me my solid rock. My flesh is weak, and my heart is fickle never really knowing what will make it happy. Yet, as I seek you in all my ways, you are making my path straight. You say, “lean not on your own understanding”, oh Lord I do seek you in all my hunger and thirst I submit because by your grace I have learned that there is something I yearn for more than anything else, and that is you. My flesh gets restless but it is your will that I yearn for the most. It is your voice that my soul is desperate to hear all the time, and when I don’t hear it for awhile I become even thirstier. Our souls are thirsty, and the majority of humanity doesn’t know that it is you they hunger and thirst for. Some may never know. You are my solid rock, on which I stand. Your faithfulness keeps you here, always available and your love is forbearing, always enduring. No matter if I turn to the right, or to the left, there will always be a voice directing me, my Lord, the solid rock on which I stand.
There will come a day when I will help many people with the things that I teach. What will draw crowds to me is that the things that I say will be the good news. For beautiful are the feet of the one who brings tidings of peace. Why would people gather to hear? Because it is the truth, and the truth is such good stuff. In John 10:10 Jesus spoke and proclaimed, “Satan came to steal away your life, but I came that you would have and enjoy your life”. It is the spiritual plague that Satan uses to undermine the hand of God in our lives. It is his lies that we are not good enough, that it will never be better, that God doesn’t love us. It is the lie that no matter how much we try we will never overcome or achieve peace. It is that he shows our mistakes and our inadequacies on display for not only us, but also for the word to see. You see, our battle is not to rid ourselves of all those things, though that may become the focus of our fight. Rather, our battle is to believe what God says, the good news that we are now complete, the good news that we are forgiven, the good news that nothing we do can ever truly separate us from the love of God. That we are holy and dearly loved, and that it will be ok. That we truly are ok if we would just allow the Lord, the Holy Spirit cleanse and redeem us. It will be ok. Thank you Father for your revelations, they are such a special thing to have. Help me always to be fruitful and get the word out. Also, help me to continue to become perfect in trusting you Father God. Trust that you are faithful to lead the way. My personal challenge is believing on a subconscious level that I’ve been, or will be abandoned. Lord, by your Holy Spirit place set us, or us free. Thank you. Amen.
Sometimes our negative feelings are there so that we can go deeper in understanding life and our father in heaven. When we feel discouraged in this world, it means that we are not content with what this world has to offer. When we feel down, it seems to be a time of transition for our souls. We learn what we are and what we are not. We learn who are our friends and who are not. We learn that only the father himself is able to satisfy our deepest needs. When the world presents itself it seems that it is often a facade. Only God is real. People act like who they are not, because if we saw them for who they are than maybe we would reject them as they reject themselves. I know that focusing on my own blemishes is full time work and I can see why it would be difficult to have real time for someone else. It is also in the times spent alone that we present ourselves to God as we really are, and the beautiful thing about God is that we do not have to be perfect, but because of his grace we are someone, but because of his long suffering can we grant long suffering to another. I would rather be alone then have fake interactions with others. I would rather be myself and accepted for who I am. In this world we will not find true love unless for his grace.
