Psalm 61:1,2 – “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” David calls on the Lord, as we can, to hear the prayer of a troubled believer. His prayer, as ours, is that he (we) might be brought back to the “rock that is higher” than he (us). The imagery of God as a Rock for the believer was introduced by Moses and is developed elsewhere in the Psalms. He is our rock, no matter how far we might stray, He never does. He is always there, if we will only humble ourselves and take advantage of His grace and strength.

Hebrews 4: 14-16: “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” ‘Sympathize’ means “to suffer with” and expresses the feeling of one who has entered into suffering. Jesus experienced every degree of temptation so He is well aware of our daily trials. ‘Come’ is the same Greek word translated “draw near.” Because of Christ’s priestly work believers can approach God’s presence. Believers should courageously approach God because His is a “throne of grace,” and our High Priest sits at His right hand interceding for us.

FAITH WORKS – “Pray daily for Faith.  It is My Gift. It is your only
requisite for the accomplishment of mighty deeds.  Certainly you
have to work, you have to pray, but upon Faith alone depends
the answer to your prayers – your works.  I give it you in response
to your prayer, because it is the necessary weapon for you to possess
for the dispersion of evil – the overcoming of all adverse conditions, and
the accomplishment of all good in your lives, and then you having
Faith, give it back to Me.  It is the envelope in which every request
to Me should be placed.  And yet “Faith without works is dead.”  As
you seek to do, you feel helplessness.  You then turn to Me.  In knowing
Me, your faith grows – and that faith is all you need for My Power to work.”

Psalm 146:5,6 – “Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever.” Happy indicates a deep and abiding pleasure, a manifest joy. This is the proper description of one whose help and hope is in God. The Creator is the One who comes to the aid of the righteous. I can truly say from my walk with the LORD, until you put anger, resentment and fear out of your heart; and replace it with joy and love – you won’t receive the eternal peace that only our LORD can bring. Have a SUPER weekend and I ask you for “a moment of silence” today for a dear friend and wonderful
man Jim Morgan; may he Rest In Peace.

I MUST PROVIDE – “I am your Lord.  Enough.  Then I can command
your obedient service, your loyalty.  But I am bound by My Lordship
to give you protection.  I am bound to fight for you, to plan for you, to
secure you a sufficiency of all within My Power to provide.  Think how
vast that provision can be.  Never doubt.  Such marvels are unfolding.
Wonders beyond your dreams.  They only need the watering of a
grateful spirit and a loving heart to yield abundantly.”

Jesus is speaking on His Beatitude discourse in Luke 6:43-45: “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”  Simply put: Actions, not words, indicate where one’s heart is.
