How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to Your Word.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy Sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life.
(2 Peter 1:20-21)
“It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from Him comes to Me.” – Jesus the Christ
The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.
The Lamb is WORTHY
And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And have made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Jesus is praying, “Never betray My trust; get over “it” and continue to keep walking in My Will.”
Keep walking along straight paths so that your injured leg won’t get worse. Instead, let it heal.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.
(2 Samuel 7:12)
If your sons keep My covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.
They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.
God’s plan to restore the world disfigured by sin and death reaches its climax with the resurrection of Jesus. When the King enters, all the prophecies, all the hopes, all the longings find in Him their true fulfillment. There may have been earlier fulfillments; but these are only partial fulfillments, signposts along the way to God’s true goal. The goal has been the restoration of people to a holy God. With Jesus, we find the only perfect man with right standing before God. He comes to blaze a path defined by God’s justice, not by our own sense of right and wrong. All men, women, and children who commit their lives to Him will be made right with God and will begin new lives defined by faith and God’s new covenant.
Moses made this clear long ago when he wrote about what it takes to have a right relationship with God based on the law: “The person devoted to the law’s commands will live by them.” But a right relationship based on faith sounds like this: “Do not say to yourselves, ‘Who will go up into heaven?’” (that is, to bring down the Anointed One), “or, ‘Who will go down into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring the Anointed One up from the dead). But what does it actually say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”(that is, the good news we have been called to preach to you). So if you believe deep in your heart that God raised Jesus from the pit of death and if you voice your allegiance by confessing the truth that “Jesus is Lord,” then you will be saved! Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation. Because what Isaiah said was true: “The one who trusts in Him will not be disgraced.” Remember that the Lord draws no distinction between Jew and non-Jew—He is Lord over all things, and He pours out His treasures on all who invoke His name because as Scripture says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Faith is not something we do. It is a response to what God has done already on our behalf, the response of a spirit restless in a fragmented world.
How can people invoke His name when they do not believe? How can they believe in Him when they have not heard? How can they hear if there is no one proclaiming Him? How can some give voice to the truth if they are not sent by God? As Isaiah said, “Ah, how beautiful the feet of those who declare the good news of victory, of peace and liberation.” But some will hear the good news and refuse to submit to the truth they hear. Isaiah the prophet also says, “Lord, who would ever believe it? Who would possibly accept what we’ve been told?” So faith proceeds from hearing, as we listen to the message about God’s Anointed.
But let me ask this: have my people ever heard? Indeed, they have:
Yet from here to the ends of the earth, their voice has gone out;
the whole world has heard what they have to say.
But again let me ask: did Israel perhaps hear and not understand all of this? Well, Moses was the first to say,
I will make you jealous with a people who are not a nation.
With a senseless people I will anger you.
Then Isaiah the fearless prophet says it this way:
I was found by people who did not seek Me;
I showed My face to those who never asked for Me.
And as to the fate of Israel, God says,
All day long I opened My hands
to a rebellious people, who constantly work against Me.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word sent to heal and deliver us from destructions and for the guidance of Your Holy Spirit sent to lead and guide us into all truth every step of the Way home to You through Jesus the Christ, the Living Word.
Thank You for not leaving us to go astray but delivering us to walk in agreement with Your Word of Truth that we might live lives that bring glory and honor to You. As You speak to us through Your Word, help us to receive Your Words into our hearts and put them into action through our thoughts, words and deeds in Christ Jesus we pray. Amen.
Remember, LORD, how I have walked before You faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in Your eyes
And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise You have made concerning Your servant and his house. Do as You promised.
