In His Word Wednesday- Life in Christ

(Psa 65:1) O God, it is right for us to praise you in Zion and keep our promises to you,
(Psa 65:2) because you answer prayers. People everywhere will come to you
(Psa 65:3) on account of their sins. Our faults defeat us, but you forgive them.
(Psa 65:4) Happy are those whom you choose, whom you bring to live in your sanctuary. We shall be satisfied with the good things of your house, the blessings of your sacred Temple.
(Psa 65:5) You answer us by giving us victory, and you do wonderful things to save us. People all over the world and across the distant seas trust in you.
(Psa 65:6) You set the mountains in place by your strength, showing your mighty power.
(Psa 65:7) You calm the roar of the seas and the noise of the waves; you calm the uproar of the peoples.
(Psa 65:8) The whole world stands in awe of the great things that you have done. Your deeds bring shouts of joy from one end of the earth to the other.

All of Psalm 65 is beautiful, and I encourage you to read it.

I know I am not the only one to thing, what if I gave God up right now? What would my life be like? Well, I always get the same answer. What can I do? What can I do in comparison to what MY GOD can do? I look at my imperfect existence and I don't want this forever! I want to live in a PERFECT EXISTENCE with GOD!

The Earth cries out, the mountains move through HIS prompting, the sparrows are fed, and WE ARE FORGIVEN ALL! Who DOESN'T want to serve an AWESOME GOD who promises all of this AND MORE?

If you don't know about God and who He is, don't be afraid to ask! It is NEVER too late. No matter what we have done. No matter where we have been. Nothing that has happened before in our lives matters. NOTHING! And that is a promise! Not by me, But my awesome God. All are forgiven, we just need to come to Him and ask. Asking does take some humility but, we can do it. Push that pride aside. Push that FEAR aside. I have to do this DAILY. And each time, He washes me clean of all sins.

In turn, I TRY as hard as my Earthly body can to serve Him and tell of His great love and forgiveness.

If you want to be a child of God, if you want His promise of being His Forever, If you want to be forgiven every sin, pray this today:

God, thank you for being there for me today. I am sorry it has taken me this long to come to you, but today I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that you love me. God, please forgive me for all of those things that I have done before. I am sorry for those things, and I don't want those hanging over my life anymore.

Thank you for your love and please help me to feel you in my life today. Help me to strive to be a better person, the person YOU want me to be. Thanks for all you have done and all you are about to do in my life. I love you! ~Amen

If you prayed this prayer today, and you want to talk to me, e-mail me HERE. Or if you need us to pray for you, leave a comment. But talk to SOMEONE. Let them celebrate with you that TODAY is the start of the rest of your life in God.
