I Will Even Make a Way in the Wilderness
I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. – Isaiah 43:15-21
He that Blotteth Out Thy Transgressions
This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. – Isaiah 43:25
Our Father in heaven will blot out my sins and remember them no more. Why does He do that? Not because we deserve it or because we desire it. It is a great gift to us that he takes away our sins but He doesn’t do it as a gift to us or for us. He does it because He formed us for Himself, and He blots out our transgressions for His own self. He remembers our sins no more for Himself. What an amazing God we serve!!! We are His creation, and He loves what He has created and wants to keep His creation for all eternity.
Heavenly Father, please help me remember that I am Your creation and that You do love Your creation and want Your creation to love, honor, and live for You and according to Your will and Your Word. Show me each step I am to take on this path today…for Your Glory!!! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!!!
Woe Unto Him that Striveth with His Maker!
Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth? – Isaiah 45:9-10
For This Cause
For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: how that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. – Ephesians 3:1-7
The Fellowship of the Mystery
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: in whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. – Ephesians 3:8-12
Faint Not at My Tribulations for You
Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. – Ephesians 3:13
For This Cause I Bow My Knees
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. – Ephesians 3:14-21
Let God Arise
Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: As wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: Yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. Sing unto God, Sing praises to his name: Extol him that rideth upon the heavens By his name JAH, and rejoice before him. – Psalm 68:1-4
Be Not Thou Envious Against Evil Men
Be not thou envious against evil men, Neither desire to be with them. For their heart studieth destruction, And their lips talk of mischief. – Proverbs 24:1-2
