Good Morning Everyone!
I woke up this morning, holding onto something I had done the night before. I have been doing this quite often, unfortunately.
However, I am so thankful to have such a patient, loving, and understanding Father to encourage me and guide me along this journey. "Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path."-Psalms 119:105
I don't believe at times that I am forgiven. I just can't fathom how his mercies are new every morning. Like, doesn't he get tired of forgiving us?
Then Holy Spirit slides this little scripture in my devotion, "I weep with sorrow; encourage me by your word." -Psalms 119:28 NLT
& then I go on and proceed to read…
"The Lord's unfailing love and mercy still continue, fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise". -Lamentations 3:22-23 GNB
I was like okay, I know this verse but I'm still just not fully understanding Lord, I'm not sure why but can you help me out?
God, already knowing how I've been feeling, ever so gently reached out to me and put this in my lap…
The Lord is so patient with me and knows exactly what I need at exactly the right time. He is perfect.
I can trust in The Lord's word and promises that even when I do make a mistake, no matter the size, I am forgiven. It may seem silly to many because this is what Jesus, his son, died for. However, the
enemy is really good and lying and manipulating everything to make us think that there is no way that God can just keep on forgiving us. His word says, otherwise. This doesn't mean that I can continue to do wrong, being forgiven came at a very high cost.
I'm not sure who this is for, maybe it's just for me, but I know that his word is always produces fruit. "It is the same with my word. I send it out, and I always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and will prosper everywhere I send it."-Isaiah 55:11 NLT "
Thank-you Papa for always placing your word at an arms reach for me to hear and comfort me. I pray that I study and meditate on it daily, being able to grow a deeper understanding of who you are and who I am in you. I want to thank-you for your perfect timing and your forgiving heart. I want to thank-you for sending down your son so I have been made new. I pray that I am able to be still and know who you are and your promises to fight when the enemy attacks. Thank-you for giving us Holy Spirit to point out things my flesh wouldn't normally see. You are such a loving and patient father. May I have your eyes to see people how you see them, your ears to hear what you hear, and your words to speak. May I grow more like you every single day. Thank-you Lord for who you are. In Jesus' name, Amen!
Is there something that the
enemy has been attacking you with that The Word of God says is untrue? I pray that the Lord will send you revelations of what needs to happen in order to grow deeper into a relationship with him.

I'd love to hear what God is doing in your heart!
