“But I am the only Love you will ever need!” – Psalm 29

June 1, 2011
Psalm 29:4 The Lord's voice is powerful; the Lord's voice is majestic.

God has given me more instances of hindsight and ah ha moments than I care to reveal. I would rather not write this message, but… a few days ago. Well.  I felt melancholic...  I know the reason I felt that way, but it’s not necessary for me to reveal it in order to bring you this message.

I made bad choices in my younger years – I wasn’t walking in God’s light. No excuses – that’s just my reality. And, the reality is that I am now facing those consequences. But the amazing thing is that I face consequences as I hang on to God. There’s one thing I’ve learned in my divine journey: I will not let go of God during my periods of regret.

Back to my story, a few days ago I had one of those regret episodes, but before I wasted precious time feeling sorry for myself, God spoke to me.  I clearly heard him say, “But I am the only Love you will ever need!” It took my breath away! I turned around and smiled at the air – as if he was standing there in human Jesus form! I realized that God is the only Love I will ever need. I am satisfied. God spoke.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
