contemplate…… think…. meditate… set your minds on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ Who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory!
This has been a theme of my life as of now. Been trying to get this ol’ mind renewed. Pray the scripture, memorize the scripture, write the scripture. The Word is it!
When in need of Him. How do you regain focus you’ve lost, fire that’s simmered, or the place from which you’ve digressed? What sacrifice will it take to make another leap forward? Simple trust in Ample Power sometimes seems Impossible. Deserts, droughts and thunderstorms mark the way of the weary. But isn’t He the same God that said He would give, “waters in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” Refreshment lies ahead. Don’t be fooled by the way things look. Circumstances are temporal but His Word is eternal and is established in the heavens. Scars hurt if not dealt with and wounds fester if left covered. Light! Light! If you see it run to it, ” for whatever makes manifest is light.” Uncover and expose your true self and walk in His light, for that’s where He is.
Because you say, “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’–and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.””‘
