Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Praying It Through

It's been a long, busy week filled with JOY along with some decision making. I am on a 30-day Prayer Vigil with the Lord as to a specific "decision" that I need to make. I wanted to be completely trusting in the LORD for His will (not mine) in this. I've never done this type of praying 'process' for something specific (not talking about it - just praying it through). Listening to the LORD is key - but He has been faithful in speaking - through His Word and through His Spirit. He also put a new CD [In Christ Alone] in my path with a song that has spoken volumes - about where my heart needs to be in this process.

Here are just a few of the words:

Speak, O Lord (by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend)

Speak, O Lord. as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of power can never fail---
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us----
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.

Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.

I could not help but think of this scripture passage......

  • Isaiah 6:1-3
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
"Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty;
the whole earth is full of His glory." [emphasis mine]

Praising the Lord of Heaven and Earth - the Faithful One!
I long for that Day when we behold Him in all His GLORY!

Choosing JOY,
