Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him,because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
Someone recently told me the true litmus test on your relationship with Christ is obedience. If you love Him you will obey Him. This may sound easy, but it is not. Every thought, every action, every attitude has to be Christ centered. We will fail, but we must ask Him to give us the grace and the strength to do His will. He will bring us closer to Him and closer to how He wants us to be. We cannot do it alone, we must give it all to Him, trust Him and obey.
For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!
1 Chronicles 16:9
9 Sing to him. Sing praise to him.
Tell about all of the wonderful things he has done.
I am a firm believer in praising God during good times and bad. Not that I am perfect at it. But God is God all the time and God is good all the time. Lately, after watching so many around me go through a lot of pain for the last few years, they are starting to receive GREAT BLESSINGS and answers to prayer. So I want to take a short moment to PRAISE GOD extra today for the faithful One He is.
