LET ME CLIMB

“Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face, O God of Jacob.” -Psalm 24:3-6 (Berean Study Bible)

“O LORD, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks with integrity and practices righteousness, who speaks the truth from his heart, who has no slander on his tongue, who does no harm to his neighbor, who casts no scorn on his friend, who despises the vile but honors those who fear the LORD, who does not revise a costly oath, who lends his money without interest and refuses a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.” -Psalm 15:1-5 (Berean Study Bible)

ABBA, let me climb Your holy hills because that is where You are, and help me to know right from wrong, to keep my hands clean and my heart pure before You. LORD, I need to hear Your voice, to receive Your instruction and counsel, to learn Your ways, to know Your Word and Your commands. LORD, Your will is all that matters and Your righteousness is what I seek. There is no other god before You, and nothing compares to You for You are glorious, arrayed with splendor and majesty. Let me climb Your holy hills, LORD, where you dwell, and make my feet like the deer so I am able to climb these mountain heights. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

New Creation In Christ

One of the blessings God has given to those who are in Christ Jesus is that they are no longer what they were before Christ. In Christ, we are new creations. The old is gone, and the new has come. So fix your eyes on Christ and on the road God has marked out before you, and press forward. Step into the plans and the future God has for you.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, You are the God from whom all blessings flow. I thank You that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank You for being the Author and the Finisher of my faith. Father, I am fixing my eyes on You because I know You have great plans for me. I will put my trust in You as I step into the plans You have for me and the future You designed. I ask that You continue to show me the way I am to go as I am relying and depending on You to lead me. My desire is to stay in Your will and to do what You would have me to do. I know You have already gone before me, and I ask for Your help in remaining steadfast before You. Continue Your work in me, O Lord, and light my way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

ARISE AND BE STRONG

You are a child of the Most High God, and He has created you with purpose.  He has plans He has designed specifically for you.  As you go through this season, ask Him what He has planned for you.  Seek His counsel and His ways.

If the Lord has laid on your heart to do something and if you have been putting it off, then let me encourage you to rise up and do what God has called you to do.  Do whatever task God has told you to do.

What is stopping you from moving forward into the plans God has for you?  May I encourage you to lay whatever is stopping you before God?  Surrender yourself to God and submit to His will.  Let Him do His work in you, and let Him use you for His glory and to further the Kingdom of God.  Let Him use you to be a blessing to others.

Rise up, Child of the Most High God!  This is not the time to sit back!  Wait on God, and as you wait on Him, do His will.  Obey His Word.  Follow through with whatever God is calling you to do and do whatever He has told you to do.


Heavenly Father, You are the Most High God, and You have created me with purpose and significance.  You have called me according to Your purpose that I might go forth and do Your will, to do the tasks You have called me to do.  Lord, I surrender myself to You, asking You to show Your will and Your way that I might walk into the destiny You have specifically designed for me.  Continue to be my Light and my Guide.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
