I’m not a morning person but there is something about mornings that remind me that each day is a new gift from God.
I think most of us are trying to ‘figure out life’, its meaning & purpose. We search for answers to questions we have deep within our minds but if we are honest we can admit we just don’t know and I think once we admit we just don’t know but have to fully rely on God’s provision, love, grace, mercy and sovereignty, that is when we can finally find peace and salvation. That is when our hearts & minds begin to be satisfied.
It all comes down to a relationship with God, through Jesus.
For me religion has always made it hard. Man made rules and logistics that try to put God in a box and that limit His abilities & power, that is what hurts my faith & stunts my personal growth in Him.
This world can be such a cruel place. People who try so hard at playing God and being The Savior rather than letting Christ be in charge they try to be Christ rather than be Christ-like.
“This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name:
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Jeremiah 33:2-3 NIV
So, I call on Him directly and regularly, not so that I can become a god or try to do His great works but so that I can come to know Him personally and in doing so He can dwell (live in me) and love others into a relationship with Himself, using me as an instrument, a mode of transportation, in which He can reach others through.
Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, came to earth to show others God’s true attributes.
He made Himself known, not to become an accessory, but rather, to be accessible.
It is through calling on Him that a relationship develops and He is able to bring us a deeper understanding and into a knowledge & wisdom that otherwise we would never comprehend.
He didn’t do this so that we could or would come across as better (holier than thou) but so that we would be better off and humbly serve others, as Christ served & subjected Himself to the mercy of others, even to the point of death on a cross.
Heavenly Father may we simply accept The Lord Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our sin and let Your Holy Spirit move in & clear out the confusion, sin and chaos in our lives.
In Jesus name and for Christ’s sake Amen
Here is a great VIDEO WITH LYRICS but the audio is kinda poor. Under the video posted on YouTube are all the Scriptures that go with the song but again, for some reason the audio is very poor in this version:
Here is a better version of the audio, but no on screen lyrics:
