Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for a New Day to sing praises unto Him! I thank The Lord that He hears our cries and prayers and blesses us. I am Thankful for the Love that comes from knowing Christ Jesus!
It is Written,“But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he has been so good to me.” (Psalms 13:5-6)
“But I trust in your unfailing love.” God’s unfailing love, what does this mean to us? Well, think about it this way, the Lord set a standard which is His Word and promise given unto us. We all know the Word that was sent, because it our daily bread and for the promise, it is the Holy Spirit who Jesus said will be with us forever! God so loved us he not only gave us scripture to live by, but a counselor whenever we need help on any situation. So when someone in the bible says they put their trust into the Lord, it means 100 percent Faithfulness. Now how many of us have had this track record with our emotions towards God? I know many times when I come under distress or trails, I used to feel like my faith was weakening or God wasn’t hearing my prayers. Even when I was lost in the world, I used to feel that I had sinned to the point where God come never use me. But it is by God’s Grace that this wasn’t the truth. Have you ever wondering why people don’t pray for the Spirit of Happiness? Because it is the Spirit of Joy that will keep us always!
“I will rejoice because you have rescued me I will sing to the Lord because he has been so good to me.” I truly rejoice in the Lord for saving me. I praise him because when I felt beat up, lost and defeated, he renewed me and lifted me up. For if True Love is the essence of the Lord; then Love can never be about emotions. Emotions can change like seconds in the day, But God has remain the same even before the beginning of time. This is why Jesus calls us above all things to Love. This is why when Paul said even over hope and his own Faith he would chose Love. We must understand that it is not about the feeling; it is about the security of the Word of the Lord that we should seek for daily. If you believe in the Lord because of your feelings, then where would that leave you? Joy one day and then you are lost another. We are called to believe and Love the Lord through every up and down, because that is what he has done for us. When you start understanding that Love is not an emotion, but a firm commitment, you will truly know the Heart of your Father who is in Heaven.
Prayer: I Pray in Jesus Name that everyone who reads this today is blessed with the Love and Compassion of the Lord!
