“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
I have just finished a multi-week process called “Cleansing Stream”. I have come to understand how His presence is a daily Cleansing Stream. I can move forward, there is no backward, there is no more upstream wasted effort. I must however shed the rocks from my knapsack, there is NO choice. In doing so, Holy Spirit and I are afloat but yet not in total control.
The goal is to stay inside the banks of this flow. Our Father is the flow, the banks are the reachings of Christ. No that was not a typo. The Lord’s teachings reach out like He did for Peter who was sinking. Every teaching speaks to another rock that must go from our knapsack of offenses. Even a strong hand can only keep us from drowning for so long. Our burdens MUST be released. What if Peter had fought Jesus, in that stormy sea?
This program is for everyone. I am not a novice. I benefited. To all you senior followers, you want to do this.
I highly recommend you seek this program and invest the relatively short time required and reap the exceptional benefits. After all, a greater awareness of God’s presence is ….. well, you know.
This morning as always, after praise, during my prayer time I prayed the following and then prayed for “My 100” neighbors and also just as many or more personal friends… by name.
I keep two lists. I suggest you consider doing the same.
My load is never lighter than when I have interceded for others.
“You Lord are my provider, my Victory, my Healer, my Salvation and Deliverer. You will show me the path I am to walk, sustaining me by Your Wisdom and Grace.
My existence will be a testimony to You Lord, glorifying You Lord, adding to the numbers that will proclaim Your loving Lordship in grateful words of praise, in songs of thanksgiving, magnifying Your power and love.
Oh the choirs of praise, the glorious harmonies that will fill the sky, echoing, no reverberating across the vaulted ceiling of the universe. Our hearts will swell with gladness, can we even breath enough while crying in holy thankfulness.
Holy, Holy, Holy is Your name Oh God, our Salvation. We worship You now, in view of then oh Lord.
Now let us put up the sail is this stream while You man the tiller Lord Jesus, while You Father are the Wind in our sails. For You equip us Lord but we must raise the sail. We must trust our Pilot, our Helmsman, as He reads the Wind and sets our fastest tack to our Holy destination, for He takes us to where we will be with Him, always.
Oh, He is our blessed Hope, the trustee and good of our eternal life. We bless You Lord and we are blessed, in You Lord.
Carry our praise oh Holy Spirit, for it is written, it is declared here and now, through-out this earth, oh blessed Lord, … in Jesus name.”
With everything that is happening and will happen, loaded with praise for our deliverer, let us remember our last line of defense is to forgive anyone for anything. Our first line of defense is to guard against offense in the first place.
“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”
In the guardianship of Christ,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
