I love Wednesdays, it is the middle of the week, and the day we go to church to get our heart lift for the rest of the week, we gather and pray for all our needs, it is a good time of fellowship and just a good day, even the name sounds happy, puts a song in my heart, and pep in my step, how about you? Do you feel happy today?
Is it the bright spot in your week. I think of the Prophet Jeremiah what he said in Chapter 3 and verse 2 and 3;
"2. Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name;
3. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
Wow, all we have to do is call upon the lord and he will show us all kinds of things that we cannot even imagine, have you prayed for something that only you and God knew about? Then he answered your prayer and magnified what you ask for. Amen, yep that is my God, he gives and gives and never stops giving, from the time of creation throughout eternity he gives, God is such an awesome God, the only one, it sure blesses my heart to be able to call him Father.
In such a vast universe of billions of stars, think of the power of God who made them and knows each of their names. Think of all he knows that we don't. Think of all he has seen that we have not seen, think of all that he has written and is not in our history books. Think of all he has done and can do. Add to this that he asks us to talk to him about the things of our heart and our needs, then you understand the great space of his grace and our very limited knowledge of our minds.
He created us for fellowship with him, we are not forced to love him, we are not forced to talk to him, it is our honor to come before a holy God and tell him the things that are on our heart, whew, Well glory getting me lifted high in the Spirit already this morning. Yes just like Jeremiah penned through the power of the Holy Spirit, he will answer thee, and shew they great and mighty things which thou knowest not.
I leave you today with these thoughts, found in Matthew, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:"
This song keeps going through my head too, when I seen that photo of the morning sun peeping through the clouds.
(I come to the Garden Alone)
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
Have a wonderfully blessed Wednesday.
