this summed up to future that was hoped/prayed for. and the emotion felt? ‘m smiling. https://wordpress.com/block-editor/post/collactiona.live/3922 you see, when we first learned about the ‘intranet,’ in 1988, a hope would be a possibility around college years, always been enthusiastic towards that ability to speak with the entire globe as audience; was a hip, hip thing for a little cat like me. but in no way is this about me. vanity’s not me. discovering the world wide web whilst listening my favorite voice at a public library down the street, 1996, was not finding it what did widen my eyes my ears that summer: was/is a guide beside His Son. Trust Him. may never be apparent now, but it will, Faith: all there for the taking. to find His Trust will take care of all; this life and the life to come, once this earthly test to not be anxious, but trust, He Is. seek ye His Life, satisfaction requires an intimate relation. my friend Todd talked, HERO?, that year; if only on the net; don’t recall what, but.
method: how you say? method? it’s all about HIS mercy, and those promises made in 1988
He can take anything, what is keeping you from singing:
“all to Him i freely give?” DEAR GOD, TODAY I WANT YOU TO HAVE EVERYTHING…
I SURRENDER MY LIFE TO YOU. “He just wants you to surrender yourself to Him so He can bless you.” “Bless others through you, and give you the opportunity to of enjoying a side of Christian life that most people will never enjoy. The Christian life is a way of life led by the lord Jesus Christ who lives within us who has the very, very, best from God‘s point of view.” God has the right to expect from us “I surrender myself…” That is the will of our father… our will needs to be yielded to His will. When we pray it is a personal conversation Look at the stories (books of) The HOLY BIBLE; for sure we can know for certain. surrender, for a general it is all about losing, but for the Christian it is the assurance that good things are about to be so real in our day to day life, it is so, the concept of yielding a will to the lord will come naturally. If you never yielded yourself to the lord, confess, repent to the Trinity as to let go of those items that He has put His finger on; that you keep hidden, that are inside our life, all the stuff that we will, and that you can do without.
ARE YOU SURRENDERED TO CHRIST?
it’s not as if He did not surrender all for each of US.
Crucifixion = death, surrender = a death. to be dead
to the old way of doing things. trust Him to give you the
desires of your hearts desires. He is already in charge of it
all… everything in our lives. there is no getting around it. the
fact: our lord Jesus does not want what we have; he tells us. do
yield yourself; completely to Him Don’t be afraid to let all you have
go to the very one that’s going to give us everything. does that mean no
sickness, no suffering, that’s not what He’s about.
keep your eyes fixed on the our Lord and trust Him. that will keep you close to Him.
“My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare.”
till then, dig this:
|Today’s reading is drawn from Joel 2:12-13 and Joel 2:18-19. |
Observation Often an answer from God will come packaged and delivered in a promise
\as something potentially available. That is how God dealt with his people through the prophet.
He answered their pleas with a call to return to him so that he could make good on promised blessings. Application We’d rather the answer come in concrete form; fully assembled and ready to use, with a full guarantee. But God has spoken more than 7,000 answers to our problems and questions in promise form. So how do we get these answers wrapped in “potential packaging” to become reality? God gives his answers in potential form because his greatest goal for us is not making us comfortable, it is building our characters. He makes promises reality, not through obligation, but through obedience. God’s promises are converted from potential into reality by steadfast faith and adherence to his commands. God’s promises require us to walk with him in a covenant — his promises are converted from potential into present reality through patiently waiting on him. As we understand why his answers come in promise form, we better understand how “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires” (2 Peter 1:3 – 4).
Prayer Father, help me to be obedient and faithful, not only to benefit from your promises,
but also to partake in your divine nature — to look more like you and give you glory!
