My God my Father in heaven how I pray you be exalted above all my life. May humility and truth and grace be upon your people. My Lord you are great in faithfulness and your mercy is not likened to the mercy of man that is short. Yours is the mercy. Yours is the truth. Yours the kingdom. My Father I pray you give without ceasing your grace and bestow upon us the desire of your heart and the life of your breath. For you are God most high and there is no other. Virtue and honour are yours.
I just don’t know any other way to love Christ than to obey Him. So help me Lord, through your grace I can. I will. I do. Even as you judge me, have mercy I pray you Father in heaven, have mercy upon me. For He try’s the reins of each heart. Our outward appearance is as heavy as a single maple leaf. Thought we search for blush and lip gloss, God searches for honour and integrity, justice and truth, mercy and love, faith and faith and faith. Glory to God who makes wise the simple. Amen.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”
“Look not on his countenance nor on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”
1 SAMUEL 16:7
Great and terrible. Terrible and great. Glory O God who reigns evermore. Glory. Holy holy holy is the name of God Most High. Holy holy holy. In awesome wonder does the earth and the nations tremble O Lord God of all the worlds. Awesome wonder. Glory.
The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.
Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.
The king’s strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he answered them.
He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.
Thou answeredst them, O Lord our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.
– PSALM 99 –
Upon the path of God are steps taken by faith. Upon the route of the most High are long leaps tried. Upon the flight plan of thy Maker are ways unknown to you. Yet still, by accepting His way through the grace supplied unto you for the task, you can now by faith power courage and strength, hold your peace and move forward. Press forward. Go forward. For though His way be not seen as yet, it will. Follow through on His direction and see the desire of God.
Your way is in the sea, and your path in the great waters, and your footsteps are not known. You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
God's love destroys me more than the power of His mighty wrath. More then the strength of a thousand hurricanes, His love for mankind caused Him to set upon Himself destruction beyond the perception of hearts, and wires of minds.
“…That He, by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” Hebrews 2:9
His workmanship is us.
His reason to lay down His life is us.
His steadfastness in suffering long is His jealously for us.
