Psalm of David

Who is your King of Glory? Have you come to him with clean and clean heart? We all have sin, not one is clean. We seek repentance for our sin whether we know it or not. Ask God today for forgiveness of your sins. Don’t wait, now is the time for tomorrow will be to late.

The earth is the Lord’s , and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord ? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord , and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Seeds of Spring: A Woman’s 40 Day Devotional

Day 3
PREPARE THE SOIL
Read Luke 8:4-8.
The seed of God that is sown into the good soil is the only seed that bears fruit. What does the “good and honest” heart look like? What kind of hearer is this? This is the one that upon hearing the word of God takes it to heart, listens, repents, believes, and obeys. This is the heart in which the seed takes root, grows, and produces fruit that matures.
How do you receive God’s word?
Jesus tells us this parable to help us examine ourselves: Do I have ears to hear? Do I have a heart that is able to respond to the word of God in repentance, belief, and obedience?
As I look back on my life as a professing Christian, I realize that during the first ten years the weeds of the world choked out the word of God. I loved the things of the world. “Real life” was too important. God’s word had fallen onto the ground of my heart and began to grow, but the worries and concerns of this world far outweighed the importance of God and His kingdom. Thankfully God didn’t leave me there; He rescued me. It was as if He took a rototiller to my heart. But that wouldn’t have been enough. He completely replaced my heart with a new one. The seed He sowed into my new heart took root and grew. Since that day this new heart responds so differently to His word. It delights in the law of the Lord!
Read Psalm 1.
If your heart delights in God and His word, praise and thank Him! Thank Him for the great and immeasurable gift that He has given to you and nurture that gift! If your heart does not delight in the law of the Lord, do not despair, do not give up, and do not walk away. Confess it to the Lord. No one has the power to make the soil of their heart good. Ask God to forgive you and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. “Lord, let your living words penetrate our hearts and produce a full harvest of righteousness!”
Over the next several weeks, take God’s word to your heart and ask Him to help you receive it by faith and then bring it to life through obedience. Ask Him to help you bear a full harvest of righteousness.

And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Luke 8:4‭-‬8 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/luk.8.4-8.KJV

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Psalms 1:1‭-‬6 KJV

Repentance day 4 part 2

Have you ever gotten lost? It can be one of the most frustrating feelings to not know where you are going. In fact, in some situations it can be terrifying. In verse 25, Peter compares us to sheep in that when we were living in sin, we were astray and lost. We didn’t know where to go, but after repenting of our sins and receiving God’s forgiveness we have returned to the flock that is led by God our shepherd. Where do you keep going astray? Maybe you are striving to stay on God’s path, but keep getting sidetracked onto the secondary roads by some sin in your life. Confess that sin to God. Repent of it today and ask God to help you in fully overcoming it.

Repentance day 3

Repentance results in forgiveness. We repent and God forgives. Repentance and forgiveness are not difficult concepts. Repentance is our action and forgiveness is God’s reaction to us out of His perfect love for us. While the process is simple, the power of God’s forgiveness is unfathomable. God’s forgiveness eliminates all darkness in our lives and brings us into the light no matter what sins we have committed. God’s forgiveness covers ALL sins including yours. How has the redemptive power of God’s forgiveness changed and impacted your life?
