For God love endures forever. He loved us when we were yet still sinners. He gave His son to save our soul!
I am reminded of a song while I am writing this by an artist I got to see in concert some years back now. But the song was called “Lead me to the cross.”
How fitting for that song to be playing in my spirit when today would be the day we know Jesus went to the cross for our sins, the sins of the world all the while yet being a grand display of the love of God toward us and our atonement with God.
God I thank you for that atonement provided at calvary. I praise your name! Thank you for your son Jesus!
Its just something about the cross that can take you right back to being thankful for what God saved us from and eternal place in hell for a place in Glory with Him.
May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 NASB
Everytime we are lead to the cross, to His word, called by His spirit to come closer, fast to die off the old ma and put on more of him. He is gently directing our hearts to lean on Him, trust in Him. For He is a good, good father! (Yes another song referance…lol)
It is in that we leard to become more rooted and grounded and not so all over the place. Pastor Juanita Gibbs had me pegged so well when I first came into the ministry I am in now. I was all over the place on the hunt for anything to make me feel something from God deep on the inside.
I was on youtube listening to teachings, I was in different churches, revivals, I was in books of all kinds looking to satisfy a deep craving within that could only be filled by the truth of Gods word.
It is in coming to find God through Christ in the provided word that will bring about steadfastness in my life. His word is solid. It will be here through the ages for it cannot perish. Now that is saying something.
It is in His word where I need to be anchored, rooted, steadfast, unwaivering, and unmoved when things happen in this life. For things will happen its all in how I get through them that will make a difference.
You will feel Him drawing you closer, dont ignore it. Keeping the word of God close to implant it in our hearts can and will make a differencr in our life. As I look to implant more of it I want it to change my life the more in the time ahead.
