Prayer From Isaiah 12

Isaiah 12
‘And in that day you will say: “O Lord, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’” Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. And in that day you will say: “Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, For He has done excellent things; This is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”

 

O Lord, we praise You. You were angry with us, but now Your anger is turned away. You comfort us. You are our salvation. We will trust You and not be afraid. We will trust You and not look to human resources. You and You alone are our provider. You, O Lord are our strength and our song. You are our salvation. You fill us with the joy of our salvation. We praise Your name, O Lord. We declare Your deeds among those around us. We proclaim Your true nature to the world. Let us exalt Your name before the whole earth. Let us sing unto You, O Lord, for You have done excellent and wonderful things. We cry out to You, O Lord, for You are great. Great is the Holy One in our midst.

Be Zealous

Standard

daily bread - Copy

Jesus desires to have spiritual intimacy with us. He desires to know us and for us to know Him.

Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ ”

We must have intimacy with the Lord if we desire to have the glory of the Lord in our lives and in our church, and if we desire to be in the presence of the Lord after this life. The glory of the Lord, the manifest presence of God, is not obtained by the wisdom of the world. It only comes through intimacy with the Lord.

Jesus is standing at the door longing for them to get up out of their sleepiness, and complacency and let Him come in an have an intimate relationship with them.

Song of Solomon 5:2 NKJV

“I sleep, but my heart is awake; It is the voice of my beloved! He knocks, saying, ‘Open for me, my sister, my love, my dove, my perfect one; for my head is covered with dew. My locks with the drops of the night.”

Revelation3:18-20 NKJV

“I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

The church of Laodicea was a rich city, but they has a serious problem. They did not have a source of clean drinking water. Their water came from springs that were fed from hot springs that were filled with impurities. The water they piped in tasted bad, was lukewarm, and would make them sick.

In addition to their water problem the church of Laodicea was complacent and they relied on themselves. In their eyes they felt like they had everything that they needed and they were satisfied. However, in the eyes of God they were spiritually poor, naked, and blind. Service to God was out of duty not from an intimate relationship with Him. Their service out of duty, instead of from a heart of love made God sick, just as the lukewarm water filled with impurities made the people sick.

Despite being lukewarm, they were still loved by God. The church was rebuked in order for them to see themselves as they really were in hopes that they would change. God instructed them to be zealous and to repent, and to open the door for Him to come into their lives. He desired spiritual intimacy with them, but it was them that had to open the door. God was not going to force them to have an intimate relationship with Him. It was them that had to open the door for God.

The same is still true today. God desires an intimate relationship we us individually and as a church, but He is not going to force that relationship on us. It is us that must open the door so that He can come in and dine with us and us with Him.

Song of Solomon 5:6 NKJV

“I opened for my beloved, but my beloved had turned away and was gone. My heart leaped up when he spoke. I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave no answer.”

The city of Laodicea eventually died out because they never could overcome the problem concerning their water – they never could get rid of the impurities.

Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to us. By the time the woman in the Song of Solomon got around to opening the door her lover was gone. May God help us not to be like her. May we not be so indifferent and complacent so long that by they time we open the door it is too late.

Revelation 3:21-22 NKJV

“ ‘To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on MY throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ ”

Once again the Lord is calling the church to be zealous and to repent, and to open the door for Him to come into our lives and church. As a church and as individuals may we get rid of the impurities in our lives, and may we have the same zeal for God and His house that Jesus did.

Jesus is standing at the door and knocking. Will we hear? Will we open the door?

Dear Father,

I thank-you that You first loved me. By the power of the Holy Spirit, increase my hunger for You and Your presence. I desire a greater intimacy with You. Cause me not to be complacent or satisfied with my relationship with You. May I be zealous for You and increase my hunger for a deeper relationship with You. Help me to be quick to repent when convicted by the Holy Spirit – let there be nothing standing between You and I. Remove all impurities from my life, along with those things that will hinder my relationship with You. May I do Your will – Let everything that I do be out of love for You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

 

Fellowship With God Restored

Standard

BIBLE THOUGHTS

When sin entered the garden, it stood between man and God. Man could no longer enjoy the intimacy that he once had with God. God still loved man, and desired for the intimacy He once had with man to be restored. He was desperate for intimacy with us. He longed to fellowship and commune with man, but sin stood in the way. God is a holy God and sin cannot come into His holy presence. Those who approach God in worship must do so in righteousness.

 

1 Thessalonians 4:7 NKJV

“For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.”

Psalm 24:3-4 NKJV

‘Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?

Or who may stand in His holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,

Nor sworn deceitfully.”

Adam and Eve could no longer experience the glory of the Lord (manifest presence of God) because of sin. The same is true today.

 

Romans 3:23 NKJV

                                        “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

John 14:6 NKJV

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

The blood that Jesus shed was for man’s sin. His precious blood provides atonement for our sins. Through His blood we can be restored into right fellowship with God. Because of His sacrifice we can once again experience the intimacy with God that He desires to have with us.

Dear Father,

Make us hungrier for Your presence. Cause us to be worshipers of You. Let our worship be a sweet smell to You and be pleasing. We are desperate for You and Your presence.

n Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
