Cry Mercy

May 30, 2015

Psalms 86:5-7 NET
5 Certainly O Lord, You are kind and forgiving,
and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to You.
6 O Lord, hear my prayer! Pay attention to my plea for mercy!
7 In my time of trouble I cry out to You,
for You will answer me.

Psalm 27:7-8 AMP
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; have mercy and be gracious to me and answer me!
8 You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].

Psalm 28:2, 141:2 NET

Hear my cry for mercy as I call to You for help, as I lift up my hands towards Your Most Holy Place{sanctuary}. May my prayer be set before You like incense; May the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help. Accept my prayer as incense offered to You, and my upraised hands as an evening offering.

Psalm 17:6-8 NET
6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show the wonder of Your great mercy by Your right hand, O You who save/deliver those who trust in You from those who rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings

Psalm 57:1 BBE … Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me; for the hope of my soul is in you: I will keep myself safely under the shade of your wings, till these troubles are past.

The cry above arose from David when he was hiding from Saul in a cave. His cry for mercy is doubled showing his urgent need for the Lord’s intervention. Are you sitting in a cave of darkness? A seemingly hopeless place? Needing the Lord’s intervention?

=>Double your cry for mercy! :)

More Than You Can Imagine!

NoEye
Image from 365 promises

No eye has seen
No ear has heard
No heart has perceived
All that the Lord has prepared
All that He has made and keeps ready
For those who love Him
Jesus Christ …

He is able to do
More than you can imagine!

He is able to do the impossible! – Lk1:36-37

Praise You Lord Jesus – You are able to do more than we can imagine. You are able to do the impossible! Today, help us to get a glimpse of what You have prepared and made ready for us. We love You Lord Jesus!

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 AMP
9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]
10 Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].

Ephesians 3:17-21 AMP
17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].
16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.
17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.

  • established[950] = to make firm, sure, strong
  • overflow[4052] = abound, be in excess
    *abounding is used of a flower going from a bud to full bloom.

Reliance Upon the Spirit

March 6, 2015

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB
Paul’s Reliance upon the Spirit

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NASB
9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
.

Lord Jesus, help me to rely on Your wisdom, strength and power and not my own. Thank You that my strength is made perfect in my weakness through Your grace.

.

Thank You Lord Jesus that faith does not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. Allow Your message to be heard through a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
