Sing to the LORD

Until Then……

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV)

I was listening to a song today by Casting Crowns called Prayer For A Friend. Here are some of the lyrics.

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I’ve done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You
Complicated circumstances have clouded his view
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

I fear that I won’t have the words that he needs to hear
I pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that’s sincere
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You
My best friend in the world, I know he means much more to You
I want so much to help him, but this is something he has to do
And Lord, I lift my friend up to You

I love that song because it gets to the heart of what we should be doing for each other. I often sing it and fill in people’s names in the place of “my friend.” It’s like praying to music. It brings me comfort. We should be praying for each other. We should be praying for our country and for the world. We should be praying that the hate and nastiness that abounds in the world will be gone.

Unfortunately, we know that will not happen until Jesus comes again. Until then, we need to pray.  “Even so, Come Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20

Can’t Stop His Word

Doing Right If No One Else is Doing It

Seal of Approval

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV)

 

Did you know God has a seal of approval for those that love Him?  Like the Good Housekeeping Seal, God has a seal.  It is not a physical seal that you can see.  It is evident by the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  As we follow God’s Word we become changed inside and it is reflected by our actions.  God has guaranteed an inheritance in His Heavenly kingdom.   Hearing the truth, accepting it, and following it is what seals you.  God’s truth in His Word will guide you to your guaranteed inheritance where you can see God face to face and praise Him throughout all eternity.
