Rejoice, happy and joyful we can be in God, not in the world. Like the bible says the world and it’s pleasures will pass away. God’s goodness of his love and great mercy, wow I fall so short of that. Can I say I have great mercy when someone pursues you with or without cause to your detrement. Amazing heart of David, his resolve was that God will always come to his rescue be his deliverer even though he had his 30 mighty men, God was no. 1 mighty Men in his world. What comforts you, God? David was comforted by God through his prayer being open, how open are you with God in your prayers?
Morning Father thank you for sending Jesus so He can be my redeemer so that I can have a relationship with You again. Being accused falsely for trying to do your job is not nice. In the end we still have to be righteous because God in the end we are accountable before you. Help me to love people unconditionally and see them as sheep that is lost and share the good news with them. Disappointment in the world will happen but help me to love people as You do taking me back every day even when I have sin grieviously. Thank you God that heaven can be our home and we are just appassing through. Theangels becon me from the heavens open door and I can’t feel at home in this world any more … O Lord you know I have no friend but You, if heaven is not my home then Lord what will I do. Amen
