THEME: FOLLOW GOD WHOLEHEARTEDLY
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
–As we believe in Jesus Christ our salvation, we follow God wholeheartedly. At the well of Jacob; Jesus met the Samaritan woman and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:13-14). For us to effectively follow Jesus wholeheartedly, we need to put all our trust in Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit will come to us and fill our hearts with His living water so that we may drink from Him and never thirst again.
As we have experienced from different scriptural references, there are ways that we can apply to follow God wholeheartedly. These are; prayer without ceasing and the Lord will answer us (Jeremiah 29:13), praising God (Psalm 9:1) like king David did with his entire worship team (1 Chronicles 16:37), following God’s law and especially the law of love for God (Psalms 119:2), by loving God with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength, and shunning away from evil and loving our neighbors by acts of compassion and love through His grace. We also believe in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit will fill our hearts with His gifts and fruit of love. What are the benefits of following God wholeheartedly. First and foremost God answers our prayers. Secondly, the Lord levels the mountains for us, deliver us from all evil and challenges, and make all our paths straight. Last but not least, we obtain an inheritance as children of God like Caleb received the land of Hebron in Canaan (Joshua 14:12-14), and most importantly an eternal inheritance through faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Lord Your are our Strength and Shield, we believe and trust in You with all our hearts. Some trust in horses, others trust in chariots but we believe in You Lord, Maker of the heavens and the earth. We love You Jesus for who You are. You have never failed and You will never fail. You are the same yesterday, today and forever, You have never change and You will never change. We love You Jesus. Thank You for loving us so much with an everlasting kind of love. Nothing can separate us from Your love. Your peace and grace overwhelms our hearts. We are always in awe of You. Thank You for loving us Jesus. We come at Your feet Jesus, forgive us all our sins and cover us with Your precious blood. We surrender our hearts desires, emotions, feelings, families, children, relatives, relationships, businesses, government, nation and all the nations of the world, shield us with Your precious blood. We surrender all our troubles, tribulations, anxieties, unbelief, all evil desires and everything to Your cross Jesus, take pre-eminence in our lives. We welcome You Holy Spirit into our lives and lives of those who do not know You, have mercy on us all. Fill our hearts with Your rivers of living water that we may always drink for Your well of life and never thirst again, for the glory of Your name. Amen
