Lord, I pray that I may WALK in Your care.
of Your love in my heart. Amen.
“The world is Mine, and all that is in it.” Psalm 50:12
that quitting is never an option–
then you will be free to see the possibilities.
unreserved docility and devotion before my Master.—“
He puts victims back on their feet.
God’s love, though, is ever and always,
eternally present to all who fear Him,
Making everything right for them and their children
as they follow His Covenant ways
and remember to do whatever He said.
Do we become doormats for God to wipe His feet on when we say,
“Lord, I’m willing for Your will?“
What happened to Christ the day after He said this to His Heavenly Father?
He became the Redeemer of mankind! He became your Savior.
In the first covenant, every day every officiating priest stands at his post serving, offering over and over those same sacrifices that can never take away sin. But after He stepped up to offer His single sacrifice for sins for all time, He sat down in the position of honor at the right hand of God. Since then, He has been waiting for the day when He rests His feet on His enemies’ backs,
as the psalm says.
With one perfect offering, Jesus has perfected forever those who are being made holy,
as the Holy Spirit keeps testifying to us through the prophet Jeremiah. After he says,
“But when those days are over,” says the Eternal One,
“I will make this kind of covenant with the people of Israel:
I will put My laws in their hearts and write them upon their minds,”
then He adds,
I will erase their sins and wicked acts out of My memory
as though they had never existed.
When there is forgiveness such as this, there is no longer any need to make an offering for sin.
So, my friends, Jesus by His blood gives us courage to enter the most holy place.
He has created for us a new and living way through the curtain, that is, through His flesh.
Since we have a great High Priest who presides over the house of God,
let us draw near with true hearts full of faith,
with hearts rinsed clean of any evil conscience, and with bodies cleansed with pure water.
Let us hold strong to the confession of our hope, never wavering, since the One who promised it to us is faithful.
Let us consider how to inspire each other to greater love and to righteous deeds, not forgetting to gather as a community,
as some have forgotten, but encouraging each other, especially as the day of His return approaches. (Hebrews 10:11-25)
A Pilgrim Song
I look up to the mountains;
does my strength come from mountains?
No, my strength comes from God,
who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
He won’t let you stumble,
your Guardian God won’t fall asleep.
Not on your life! Israel’s
Guardian will never doze or sleep.
God’s your Guardian,
right at your side to protect you—
Shielding you from sunstroke,
sheltering you from moonstroke.
