The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalms 145: 18
Do we need? Are we wanting? Is,there a fire within that needs to be quenched?
Ask, and it shall be given. Seek and you shall find. For we have a God Who is LOVE. Jesus bore our stripes sickness, diabilities, shame on the cross at cavalry. Are you still held down?
We are a new generation, we have been purchased with a price. Our Redeemed Liveth. Wow! Having heard that song “I know that my Redeemed Liveth…” It brings so much to bear. They crucified Him, yet I know that my Redeemed Liveth. Not just that, but in Job 19:25 it says “I know that my redeemerc lives, and that in the end He will stand on the Earth.”
Quite a few teaching points. God has always been The Redeemed! We had a part of God for redemption of our sin. We were born in sin:
Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
Ephesians 2:3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned–
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Genesis 6:5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Genesis 8:21 The LORD smelled the soothing aroma; and the LORD said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done.
Ezekiel 18:20 “The person who sins will die The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.”
More so, we can see that in The Old Testament GOD stood as The ultimate Redeemer. In The New Testament a part of God – Jesus, stepped down from on High, taking the human form. Philippians 2:6-11
“Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.” Amen.
But we should be mindful! What do we,ask For? To do HIM Glory. What have you done with what you have? Have you once given to those without. Amazingly, JESUS said:
“bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.
“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
We are launching into quite a sharing here!We started in asking in faith; believing and trusting HE who is defines LOVE!!! So much so that we know God as LOVE. For how many of you, who if your child (your own flesh) and blood asks you for something we would in no lack rain it upon them? Matthew 7:7-12
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
We have a giving God!!! The ultimate source of plenty.
