Just Accept it! In His Word 10-2-23

When we decide to accept the truth of Jesus the Christ as our savior and Lord, we make a choice to follow Him where He leads. We do not always realize this but that is essentially what we are doing when we are accepting Him as the Lord of our lives. The thing we don’t think about much but that is wholly true is that as our protector and provider our Lord wants to guide us to the next step or next level In our lives. He has the plan figured out; He has the ideas of how to make the best life for us to live but we do not always follow the steps. When this happens just like the Psalmist below we need to realize and repent and renew our walk with Him. David was known as a  man after God’s own heart and yet we read how he failed and failed again to keep his heart and life pure before God. His example is written down for us to read and see what a forgiving God we serve!

O Lord, I give my life to you. I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced,  or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.


Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me,    for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past. Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O Lord. The Lord is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Who are those who fear the Lord?  He will show them the path they should choose. They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.14 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. Psalm 25:1-14

The enemy would trap us, that is if we allowed him to!  Once we are following Jesus’ directions then we no longer can be touched by the enemy unless we allow it. HE tries to play mind games, He tries to convince us that we are not saved sometimes even, but God knows us by name!

But now, this is what the Lord says—  he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;  I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters,  I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned;  the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;… Isiah 43:1-3

If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him because he lives with you now and later will be in you. John 14:15-17

No matter what we go through, pain, sorrow, storms, or even good things in life, God is with us wherever we go. He will not leave us, and we should not try to leave Him. The truth is wherever we got He is there, and we cannot hide from God!

Today, I want us to think about these things. His love for us is so huge that it will cover a multitude of sins, and He will keep forgiving us. 70 times 7! Matthew 18:22

He wants to love us into obedience instead of chasing us around trying to make us behave He died so we could be forgiven and giving a second chance. He gave us a chance to live life, mess up and ask for forgiveness, then choose to walk again in the path He puts before us. Let’s think about all the things we can do to bring Him thanks, glory, and honor today! Let’s bless Him as He has blessed us!

How? By doing unto others as He has done for us!  Share His love, His story, His hope with others and give Him glory! In His Word
