- LORD of lords
- The Strong One Who sees
- many, many, more things that describe WHO God is!
C = Confession...God, I messed up...sinned...broke the rules...Your laws! Please forgive me!
- I'm putting myself before You again!
- I'm sinful: Galatians 5:19-21 "The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." NOTE: Who will enter the Kingdom of God? THE POOR IN SPIRIT!
T = Thanksgiving...God, I am so thankful for all my blessings...I'd like to tell you of 100 blessings this week that I am actually aware of and I know that there must be millions more...
S = Supplication...God, there are things I need from You for myself, my family, and for others...I bring those things before You...I also need You to just Remember me God...Remember that I am Yours! Remember that I am trying! Remember that I need you!
Yesterday, for the first time, I really connected with Nehemiah's "Remember me..." requests of God. In fact, the book of Nehemiah ends that way:
Remember me for this, O my God,
and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done
for the house of my God and its services."
"Remember me for this also, O my God
and show mercy to me according to Your great love."
"Remember me with favor, O my God!"
Did you notice the title of this post? It says, "WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING INSIDE OF ME: ACCTS?
What is the other "C" in ACTS that I talked about above? Steve, introduced the idea yesterday:
"Crying Out to the LORD!" It is what we've been talking about in the Be-Attitudes - "Blessed are those who MOURN!" I can only imagine those people who were crying out last week on the US Airways flight that went down in the Hudson River.
Last week, our song I SURRENDER ALL talked about us giving up all of our kingdoms. The thing is...it's a life long process! Even after becoming a christian, how many times must we come back to the LORD? Cry out? Humble ourselves? Mourn? It is part of the Godly life...the BLESSED LIFE. Cry out to theLORD today...tell Him you can't do it on your own. Tell Him that you're willing for Him to take control! Start today and pray...talk to...confide in...Adore...Confess to...Cry out to...Thank... Supply our needs, oh LORD! ...
