After acknowledging our sin and shortcomings to the LORD, we have precious promises that are available to us! I, like the Apostle Paul go through seasons (seasons that hopefully are getting shorter and shorter as His coming draws near) of falling short of the high calling in Christ Jesus, that is there for each Believer.
Several verses I read last evening confirmed these facts, not opinions, but facts~
" For this shall every one that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found:
surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him."
" Thou art my hiding place;
Thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah."
" I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with Mine eye...
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked:
but he that trusteth the LORD,
mercy shall compass him about."
" Be glad in the LORD,
and shout for joy,
all ye that are upright in heart."
Our daily cleansing comes through our confessions to God of our shortcomings.
Our uprightness of heart comes from that daily cleansing and confession to the Father of our weaknesses.
The faith we have, however great or inadequate is from Him! It is His faith; the faith of the Son of God. We are given a measure of faith and this grows as we read, believe, and meditate on His word. The Word of God, spoken to us from ages past, is as alive today as the days in which they were written.
Meditate on His promises! Make them a daily mindset and the center of our worship, prayers and praise.
