Lord, Give me Light!!

1. If I have not forsaken all
In answer to Thy loving call;
If I’ve kept something back from Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.
Lord, help me judge myself each day,
To walk this new and living way.
I seek Thy grace with all my heart,
To be made pure, just as Thou art.

2. If anything upon this earth
Attracts me with its sense of worth;
If money has a hold on me,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

3. If all my life revolves round me
And thoughts of my own family;
If I am living selfishly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

4. Is there some good I should have done?
Is there some soul I should have won?
Have I hurt someone thoughtlessly?
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

5. If someone’s failure has not wrought
Concern and care within my heart;
If I’ve judged others inwardly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

6. If I have cared for man’s applause,
Or sought my own and shunned the cross;
If I have feared man’s mockery,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

7. If I’ve not sought Thy pow’r in prayer,
Because of earthly toils and care;
If I’m not longing after Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

God’s Never Ending Love

Settled In Heaven Blog

SIH TOTT ICONPsalms 27:

[A Psalm] of David. The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.

One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon…

God will give You an Expected End!!

 

Jeremiah 29 11

God knows you — by name, by address, by spirit, by personality. His thoughts toward us are of peace and not of evil, to give us an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11). God is a loving and a peaceful God, He would never wish that bad things would happen to us. God wants to give us the desires of our hearts if we would only seek Him first.

God knows the thoughts He thinks toward us and His thoughts are the only ones that count. It makes no difference what other people think of you.

God has plans for you. Surely He will give you an expected end. we don’t care about what is happening now. God is in control. He knows the end.

God promised us to give an expected end. But God says to us to do our part.

1. God says to us to pray for others.(And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.-Jer 29:7)

2. God says to us to listen His words alone. Don’t listen false prophets(Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. 9 For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord.-Jer 29:8)

3. God says to us to wait for His perfect time.(After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. -Jer 29:10)

Then He will perform His good Word toward us.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. -Jer 29 29:11-13
