walk with me as i walk with Him
David was a man after God’s own heart.
It is described in Acts that David fell asleep after his time serving the Lord. How beautiful is that? He came to a point in his ministry where he could just lay down and wait for the gates of Heaven to open for Him. There was sin in his heart, yes, but these things couldn’t compare to the ultimate desire that David had to please his God.
Are you ever scared of sin? of the guilt or the responsibility of that sin? I promise you that not only will God love you through sin, but He will also use that sin as a tool to bring others to Christ. If we desire to please our Father, there is nothing that will stop us from Heaven. Death is nothing but a night’s sleep before we come face to face with Him.
God is so cool. Just a couple hours ago, I was asking myself why I am not in awe of God more often. I’ve begun to realize that while I’m not in awe enough, His perfection and His love for me still amaze me often. How am I supposed to fathom what He gives me? Can a goldfish understand the heart of the hand that feeds it?
God. is. good.
its always right there.
how much of a privilege is that?
the knowledge of the universe in a book that we have the chance to read everyday.
that is cray.
where has another such man existed in our history? a prophet with an unimaginable connection to God. someone who conveyed God’s Word with such eloquence and such faithfulness.
and yet, with ONE transgression against God, He was shunned from the Promise Land. In perfect mind and perfect health, Moses went to die on Mount Nebo for a sin that we commit every single day.
Moses was a great man, “whom the Lord knew face to face,” and he was denied the promise land (Deut 34:10).
We are so sinful and because of Jesus we are given ALL the treasures of Heaven.
I still complain. I still yearn for more.
God let me grateful. Let me appreciate all that You have given, WHO You have sacrificed.
i’ve been really lazy lately, so it’s off to the Good Book for me!
try to quench my thirst, dear Lord! then try again! nothing can satisfy my desire for You!
okay, let me preface this post by saying I have very little Biblical knowledge.
I am still a very young Christian, and most of what I have posted is just observations that I’ve seen so far, but none of it has been very Bible-based.
sooooo right now I just wanted to say that Acts is pretty awesome so far. I never really knew about any of the people of the Bible besides the main disciples, Jesus, God, Moses, and all of the other more well known people.
but so far, Acts has been blowing my mind. I think that the passages have just flowed really beautiful so far and the telling of stephen’s quick rise then death really just caught my eye. this book just reads like a novel.
I mean come on, did you see the first verse of chapter 8?
its the ending of chapter 7 placed onto a new chapter, like a cliffhanger would be in normally formatted books:
“And Saul approved of their killing him”
i’ve heard of Saul, but what the heck, who is he? I JUST WANNA READ MORE AND FIND OUT.
hahaha i’m so lame and Biblically ignorant…. TIME TO CONTINUE.
(just wanted to throw a thought in)
i have not been putting God at the center of my life, not been committed to Him.
from now on I will post at least once a day to keep myself accountable.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
— Proverbs 3:5-6
TO THE BIBLE!
