As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, “Where is your God?” When I remember these things, I pour out my soul withing me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast. Why are you cast down, I my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance. O my God, my is down with me; Therefore I will remember You form the land of the Jordan, And from the heights of Hermon, From the Hill Mizar. Deep call unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His shall be with me. A prayer to the God of my life. I will say to God my Rock, “Why have You forgotten me? Why of I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?” As with a breaking of my bones, My enemies reproach me, While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with pure heart. (1Peter 1:22)
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)
And made no distinction between us and then, purifying their hearts by faith. (Act 15:9)
For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. (Mark16:15-18)
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:15)
How thick is your loyalty to God?
Loyalty: attachment, devotion, faithfulness, steadfastness
It’s awesome to see a dog loyal to its master. No matter what or how the master is to the pet, for the animal to have unwavering love for them. How loyal are we to our God? Are we willing to run when things get tough or to stick it out to the bitter end. This weekend I find out where my loyalty stand with God or His church. Never thought I would be tested in this way. To see if I was loyal to my emotions, people or to my God and to obey Him. Took everything in me not to run and throw my hands up, to say ‘forget this.’ With a hurt in my heart I went back. When Jesus said, “blessed are the ones who don’t easily offended”. Man, can I tell you how hard it is not to get offended/hurt and to walk back. Think of Paul when He got beat up and thrown out of the city. For that man to get up and just to walk back in. Some people would think that is dumb or weak. But I see it as strength from on high to do it again, Devoted people understand the saying, “through thick and thin”. So I ask you today how loyal are you to God? Does your loyalty change His faithfulness to us? -tsuLife Author
