Devotional thoughts from Psalms (#5)

"The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant."
Psalm 25:14 

Fearing God (Psalm 25:12)leads to Him “showing” me (us) His covenant, which, if I (we) keep along with His testimonies (according to Psalm 25:10) all His paths “are mercy and truth”

Devotional Thoughts from Psalms 71:20-21

Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
Psalms 71:20-21

"When I am tempted to remember how close I once was to Jesus~ how much time I used to spend in prayer~ how many hours I’d spend in His Word~ how close We seemed to be~ and feel as though I can never be that close to Him again, remember this verse!
There wasn't a doubt in David’s mind but God would revive his spirit/ heart! ♥ There shouldn’t be a doubt in mine either! Not a single one!"

When YOU dear sister, begin to remember how close you once were to Jesus~ how you’ve allowed that relationship to wane, allowed circumstances to come between you~ when you remember how much time you used to spend pouring your heart out to your Savior~ when you think of how many hours you’d spend in His Word, growing more and more excited at what He was showing you~ when you remember all these things, and begin to become discouraged, believing the LIE that you can never get that relationship with the Lover of your soul back to where it once was, feeling as though you can never be that close to Jesus again, REMEMBER THIS VERSE! Read it, quote it aloud~ over and over! There was not a single doubt in the Psalmists mind or heart that God would once again revive him! (At least not at this time lol) He had seen God do it before!!! (see Psalms 85:5) So take heart! Don’t loose it! J Read, remember, quote, dwell and meditate on this verse, and remember, He who has shown you (or allowed you like Job) to see great and sore trouble WILL QUICKEN YOU AGAIN and WILL BRING YOU UP FROM THE DEPTHS! It is only a matter of time! A matter of time in which He wants you to trust, hope, and rest in Him (Psalm 71:1,5) (Psalm 37:7a)

So, hang in there, Princess Warrior! You are so totally not alone (others are going through the same thing) and you are totally not forsaken (God has not left you nor is He leaving you alone during this “mess”!)!

Devotional Thoughts from Psalms 36

Just some questions I came up with and things to apply to myself and my walk with Jesus while reading my Bible today. Was thinking "blogpost" while doing so... hence the post :)
Psalms 36:1-4
What does my behavior say to the Lost? What does it say to other Believers? Can they tell that there is a ‘fear of the LORD’ in my life—‘before my eyes’, in the words of the psalmist? Is there actually a fear of the LORD in my life, before mine eyes, to be observed by the Lost and other Christians?
Do I flatter myself in my own eyes? Life myself up in my own esteem? Until my iniquity (my choosing to do what I want, when I want to, because I want to…) is found of others to be a hateful thing? A disgusting lifestyle?
Are the words of my mouth iniquity? Are they words that I wish to say, or are they words that Christ would say and have me say? Are the words that issue forth from my mouth deceitful? Have I ‘left off’, have a said ‘Forget it!’ to being wise and seeking wisdom? Have I given up on being good?
What do I ‘devise’ upon my bed? What do I dream about, meditate on? Do I devise to do good (Proverbs 14:22) and dream of my Beloved, (Psalm 63:6) my Maker? Have I set myself on a way that is not good, or on a way that is good? Do I hate evil, or has some of it become acceptable in my sight—good even?

By God’s good grace…

  1. Fear Him
  2. Set Him before mine eyes
  3. Humble myself under the mighty had of God and He will exalt me in due time
  4. Do not iniquity
  5. Speak not iniquity
  6. Speak the truth
  7. Seek after—pursue—wisdom
  8. Strive to do good!
  9. Devise to do good to others the following day, plan out a Godly and Christ honoring and family oriented day, every night upon my bed
  10. Meditate on all the good God has done for me that day every night in bed
  11. Set myself (and allow myself to be set) on/in a way that is good
  12. Hate and abhor evil!
What about you? What did you read today!? :):):) <3

Devotional Thoughts from Psalms (#4)

 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
Psalms 25:12

God, please give me Your grace and enable me therewith to fear You, in the right way~~ not a fear of a scary God, but a reverential fear of love, honor, respect, and 1st place in my life, in Jesus’ Name! For it is the man (or woman! J) that feareth You whom You teach in the way that You choose for them!!!
Let us seek to fear and be taught by our Loving God today!
