Your personal relationship with Jesus: Ask Him to search your heart Psalm 139

Divine Note #4 – Jan. 25, 2009

In the Psalm, David tells the Lord: Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts, v23. David is basking in the Lord’s love and he wants more and more! When you have a deep, abiding relationship with God, you want him to be a part of your entire life! I promise you that there is nothing that compares to having a close spiritual connection to our great God!

If you prayed the prayer of salvation and asked Jesus into your life, what’s next? Whether you accepted Jesus for the first time or if you are a long-time Christian, you have some choices to make. When you ask the Holy Spirit to transform your life, it’s just the beginning of your journey to spiritual maturity and a closeness to God that many Christians miss. Sadly, some believers never grow because they see Salvation as only a ticket to heaven. Others feel that attending church is all they need to do and that’s good. But a third group of believers gets it! They want to develop a deeper spiritual relationship with our Lord and they want to serve Him!

Become part of the group of believers who are on fire to know and love God just like King David! Ask God to search you and know your heart. Ask Him to help you overcome sin and guide you on the road to eternal life, v. 24. He will show you the truth about yourself and help you make changes. I’m on that road and it’s not easy, but I want to be a woman after God’s own heart! I want all of you to feel the same way! The people around us need strong, righteous women!

Please come at 9:30 a.m. next Sunday, same WOW classroom 234, before our Sunday school class. I’m going to go over the prayer of Salvation step by step, so that you understand its Biblical significance. We want to equip you to share the prayer with anyone who doesn’t know Christ. We will practice praying for each other, so we can share the gift with a hurting world!

We are your Christian community! Call, text or send an e-mail to me or Roxanne when you need extra encouragement. We will pray with you and for you. That’s part of the work that God has asked us to do. Just remember how precious His thoughts are toward you, v. 17. He loves you!

Have a week full of big God Hugs!

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
