Walk in Love

Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. Hebrews 10:35-36

My choice is to obey
to stand among God’s light
and walk in love this day.

His voice will lead the way
all through the darkest night
my choice is to obey.

To live in such a way
that’s pleasing in God’s sight
I walk in love this day.

My fears are washed away
the devil’s lost his bite
my choice is to obey.

To listen as I pray
with open heart contrite
I walk in love this day.

To follow and not stray
God’s Word is my delight
my choice is to obey
and walk in love this day.

Oswald Chambers said, “With just the tiniest fragment of obedience, heaven opens and the profoundest truths of God are yours straight away. God will never reveal more truth about Himself until you have obeyed what you know already.”

So what do we already know? We know that we are saved by grace not by our works and that we are overcomers by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. We know we are to walk in the love and the light of Jesus and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit by obeying his Word.

Chances are, the Holy Spirit has already impressed on your spirit an area of your life that needs to come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  If you ask the Lord, He will show you what areas of your life He is calling to obedience. Empty yourself and submit to His will and you will be surprised at the heavy lifting the Lord will have you do in His strength.

I want to encourage you that there is joy on the other side of taking that hard step towards obedience. There is a deeper understanding of who God is and more wisdom to be revealed to you when you step out in obedience. Trust that if the Lord calls you to do something difficult, He is going to give you what you need to walk through it. Your burden will be lifted when you do that difficult thing that the Lord has called you to do and you will be at peace again. God Bless You Always!

Draw Near

And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. Hebrews 10:19

Through Christ draw ever near, 
approaching without vain,
in awe and reverent fear.

In Him we persevere,
His mercy will sustain,
through Christ draw ever near.

He stores up every tear,
and heals us through our pain.
In awe and reverent fear,

with open ears to hear,
the grace that falls like rain,
through Christ draw ever near.

Our conscience sprinkled clear,
true hearts are His domain.
In awe and reverent fear,

and in our faith sincere,
we boldly come again,
through Christ draw ever near,
in awe and reverent fear.

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22
