Moving God's Hands: Standing on God's Word, the Bible.
Praying the thoughts of God through Psalm 22
THE BIBLE'S FIRST VERSE CAPTURES IT ALL.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1
First and foremost the Bible speaks as if God isn't even an option. And for the all 66 short stories of God's autobiography we find God is searching for us to find Him. A book where if we turn to Him before we turn to His pages we can uncover a conversation with history, life, horror, love, suspense, failure, redemption... His Word will come alive, for it is alive... We can breath in God like a good read and find His plan and purpose for our lives every day, every week, evey year, every moment.
In Psalms, a king named David cries out as a man with more enemies and more pain than a poetic warrior could usually scribe. He prays in Psalm 22 "My God, my God why have Thou forsaken me?" Although his groanings are never explained he reaches out to a God with pain and supplication, with a fervency and yet with question. If you read Psalms and compare it with David's historical account in the books of the Bible, you will understand David no matter how far he strayed, how deep his tests, how low his valleys, still kept an eye to eye level with His First Love. God. In peril read this psalm to God from your heart and ask Him to speak to you...
God the Father. Jesus is fully God and fully man. The Trinity. Redemption in Jesus' shed Blood. Eternity. Life after death. Sin
Does your lifestyle welcome the creed of Christianity? In a lukewarm climate a simple omission of Christ can be as hard as a nail to the Hand of our Savior today. The miraculous has been replaced with a contemporary style of doctrine. In fact, does it not seem odd we can not normally find a church which healings of physical needs is taken for granted?
Standing. Lift Him up and He will draw all men unto Himself
Standing on God's Word makes us rely on Him. But what if a storm is seen in the distance. What if our lost loved ones were in danger and they didn't know? What if we had but a moment to get on our knees? What if hell was just within their reach? Would our faith in His Word be their life? Could we steer the storm?
And yet it is true we could! Why does a sovereign God welcome our prayers for His lost love ones of Israel? And why does He demand us to pray or curse us for not submitting?
Christ could calm a storm. So could our faith change the world? Could a mustard seed of faith which amazes Him so, make Him marvel when He honors our prayers? And our prayers are the push of souls into eternal life after this short moment.
Life is too short, eternity too long, hell too hot, heaven too real, the threat too strong, the reality to numb, the souls to costly for us to not stand, to not rise to an insatiable hell, to an enemy to angry, to angels too dire for our help, our cries to God, for our own lost, our own needs, our own destinies... Stand for this. Stand on His Word.
This I Believe (The Creed) [Lyrics] - Hillsong Worship
Stretch yourself further.
Pray a little harder.
Resist a bit more.
Fight without a prayer.
Sing as if you were dying.
Stand as the world depended on it.
Remember like it were yesteryear.
Think like a general.
Prioritize in the moment.

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
