A simple secret.May we do so.God bless.
It would be appreciated if some would take time to read this before sending it to the back pages !!
Consuming ourselves with the Consuming desire of God, in this horrible generation, is ultimate warfare. Father, please drive the message of this thread as a razor sharp dagger into the very heart of me. Teach me to join in the battle with a desire borne of Your Throne.In the time it takes me to post this message, over one hundred people will have passed into eternity. Of that number, perhaps 2 or 3 will pass into the peace of God. And shall we sleep well tonite? The "We" means me too.Only what is done in the body by the power of the Spirit of God will last. Shall we continue to strive with the power of the finite brain? Please, brothers and sisters, for the sake of Christ Jesus join Him in His Holy work. We shall do as He wills. But be sure of this, we do not understand the complex nature of today's world. There are things that were promised long before we were born. This is the time of perplexity which God promised would come. Behold, the time of the great delusion. How much of a slice does the Lord of Glory desire from this generation? What say ye. Let's find out.Amen.
I sure agree with this one. How many of us really have any one of these three? Lord give us Your heart. Amen.
Well, before it goes to the back pages, just wanted to share a few scriptures.BENT KNEES: Luke 18v1, '...men always ought to pray and not lose heart.WET EYES: Acts 20v19, 'Serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears and trials...'BROKEN HEART: Matthew 9v36, 'But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them...'Maybe there are other scriptues or thoughts others would like to share about this heartbeat.God bless.
I think Paul knew the secret of ministry.....BENT KNEES: 1 Thess 1:2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;WET EYES & BROKEN HEART: 2 Cor 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
