"That's What I Think"

My Hope Is In The Lord!
 

"Our help is in the name of the Lord".    Psalms 124:8

Those of us who have lived our lives in dependence on God will attest to our constant need of Him. Even our breath is His provision. We need His assistance in our jobs, his power to grant us endurance, His provision of health for our bodies, His wisdom and discernment to guide us in making decisions and His loving acts to encourage us throughout each day.

This old gospel song refers to our dependence on God for our salvation:

  My Hope Is In The Lord

My hope is in the Lord, who gave Himself for me.
And paid the price of all my sins at Calvary.
For me He died, for me He lives,
And everlasting light and life He freely gives.

No merit of my own, His anger to suppress,
My only hope is found in Jesus' righteousness.
For me He died, for me He lives,
And everlasting light and life He freely gives.

And now for me He stands, before the Father's throne,
He shows His wounded hands, & names me as His own.
For me He died, for me He lives,
And everlasting light and life He freely gives.

His grace has planned it all, 'tis mine but to believe,
And recognize His work of love, and Christ receive
For me He died, for me He lives,
And everlasting light and life He freely gives.

 

The following verses are very well know to God's people:

Proverbs 3:5,6

3:5   Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

3:6   In All thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Trusting, living in dependence on the Lord is one of the most important teachings of scripture. Man's wisdom doesn't get it with God. One of the ways he describes that dependence is that we should come to Him like a little child. This command of course is not so popular with nonbelievers, for obvious reasons. The old nature wants to be in control of self at all times. The popular song, "I did it my way" comes to mind as the common philosophy of the day.

Let's make it the cry of our hearts to live habitually dependant on The Lord Jesus. There are few things that would please Him more.

These editorials will not always be a daily product. However, as I am able I will endeavor to bring to writ my reflections on society.

Have the best day you have ever had and may they get progressively better every day hereafter!
