The House of God

Worship the Lord God Almighty! That is the call being placed in the hearts of many around the globe. It is time that we put the Lord’s will before our own. It’s time that we offer Him high praise! This is the requirement for those who are called to this path. Isaiah 57:15 NKJV “For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

God is calling you into fellowship with Him. He wants you to be ready, willing and able to hear His voice. He wants you to spend time daily where possible, reading His word and listening to His spirit.

The spirit of God speaks to us in our hearts. It’s like a gentle whisper calling our name. He is there for those that truly seek Him, listening to the prayers of the righteous. 1 Peter 3:12 NKJV “For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers.”

The Lord loves the humble in heart. He is attentive to their prayers, and He raises them up. 1 Peter 5:5-7 NKJV “Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.’ Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

The Lord is a God of compassion. He will meet your every need. When you put your trust in Him, you will be rewarded many times over. Lamentation 3:22-24 NKJV “Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. ‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore I hope in Him!’”

The Lord also loves a happy heart. He asks us to always be thankful in all circumstances in fact, He says that it is His will for us. 1Thessalonians 5:16-19 NKJV “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” When we give thanks to Him in each and every circumstance, we learn to be grateful for our lives, no matter what is going on. Then the Lord is able to bless us with even more!

Proverbs 15:15 NKJV “But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.” We must rejoice in the Lord and praise Him, showing Him our gratitude in everything we do! When we are rejoicing, it is pretty hard not to have a happy heart! God wants us to enjoy our lives and be happy! He wants His children to live life to the full! Jesus died so that we could experience the freedom to live life abundantly and to enjoy the freedom of knowing that all of our needs are met.

John 10:10 NKJV “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

PS Psalm 145:14 NKJV “The LORD upholds all who fall, And raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look expectantly to You, And You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing. Amen.

All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
