Scriptures:

Isaiah 64:8 (KJV) – But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Ephesians 2:10 (KJV) – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Song:

MasterpieceDanny Gokey Official Lyric Video – Published on Mar 4, 2018 – Official lyric video for Danny Gokey’s “Masterpiece” from the album RISE.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a song blog, but with everything that I and others have been facing lately, this Wednesday Worship goes directly to the core of everything God’s children may be facing.  With understanding and the right heart, we count the trials and tribulations as an honor!

Only God’s Children – those who have accepted the gift of salvation according to the scriptures by confessing with their lips their belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and believing in their hearts with prayer for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit – can comprehend the magnitude of what an eternal privilege it is in having our lives turned upside down and inside out, for God’s glory.

I was taught to be my own person growing up.  Now more than ever, I am learning to exchange self-will for God’s will through daily surrender as Corinthians 6:19 becomes a growing, tangible2 truth:

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

There is still room at the cross!

There is still time to answer the call!

There is still time for huge Savings!

Salvation Remains Free For the Asking

As Does Your Free Will to Choose or Reject the Gospel Truth!

 

Motivated to Surrender

Heart, Soul & Mind … Who Has You?

Song:  Withholding Nothing by William McDowell

I had to make this post today after our bible study last night, and after hearing this song this morning! The teacher spoke on Psalm 46:10.  My heart was immediately overwhelmed with a sense of confirmation, myself being in a mind space where I know I need to BE STILL and wait on the Lord more consistently and faithfully!

The teacher gave examples of how we get so busy with pursuing life that we tend to push God to the side, giving him a minuscule of our time, talents and energy.

I felt the SLAP upside my head – intuitively and spiritually!

When you are operating day in and day out on automatic pilot, going through the motions, checking off your long, sometimes extensive lists of things to be done, and especially those things done in the name of God, stop and ask yourself:

  • Am I living a life that is totally SURRENDERED to God?
  • Am I working off a mental checklist in autopilot mode?
  • Am I working in conjunction with the Holy Spirit to accomplish God’s plan(s) for my life?

Jesus left it ALL at the CROSS – For You and For Me! – He WITHHELD NOTHING from us in His defeat of death to ensure we had a clear path to salvation, free of flesh-guided works.

What are you WITHHOLDING from the Lord of Your Salvation when all he wants is YOU – Heart, Soul and Mind (Matthew 22:37, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27)?

Today, and in the days following, I encourage you to BE STILL & KNOW HE IS GOD!  Make your future plans, but freely allow God to supply the final answer and direction of the path he wants you to follow!
