Are You Changing?
When I ask God what he wants me to write about he impresses things in my heart and mind. Sometimes I think, really? You want me to write about that? Sometimes I say to the Lord, I don’t have a good understanding of that yet to write about that. But I do listen and try to obey him. I’ve noticed when I write about what I think I should write about, readership falls short. When I write about what God tells me to write about, readership goes up.
I didn’t start this blog with a focus of acquiring lots of readers, although that would make me happy. I started this blog to share what God has taught and teaches me about himself, everyday. The quest is not so much about acquiring knowledge itself. Another words, I do not seek head knowledge alone. I seek knowledge about God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit so that knowledge will change me and my life.
Why go to church if church doesn’t change you? Why read and study the scriptures if the scriptures do not change you? Messages are preached to get people to think differently. To change the way people act. To teach and show people about God Almighty and who Jesus Christ really is and why the Holy Spirit was sent. What is the purpose of preaching or life if things never change?
When I went through Psalm 27, I said, That’s It! A perfect overall look at our relationship with God and walk through this world. Those 14 verses explain everything. So I want to share Psalm 27 with you. I pray you can see God speaking to you through that Psalm.
Psalm 27:1-14 KJV. “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
 One thing have I desired of the Lord , that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord , and to enquire in his temple.
 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord .
 Hear, O Lord , when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
 When thou saidst , Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord , will I seek.
 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
 Teach me thy way, O Lord , and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
 I had fainted , unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
 Wait on the Lord : be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord .
