from my heart, soul and mind.
Genesis 6:6 (NASB)
The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth,
and He was grieved in His Heart.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you
Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
And sustain me with a willing spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners will be converted to You.
Hebrews 10: 16
“THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM,”
Hebrews 10: 19-22
Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebrews 13: 8-9
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace,….
1 Peter 3: 4
but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.
1 Peter 3: 15
but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;
1 John 3: 21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;
Revelation 2: 23
…and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.
For a Free Bible Study:
When one works with four year olds there is never any down time. It really pays to stay a step or two ahead of them. This can be extremely tiring and mind boggling too.
I was really stressed after spending seven hours dealing with non-stop behavior issues. All the while trying to actually get some teaching done. Never mind the personal issue I have going on in my family.
I prayed about the bad attitude I had and the way I was feeling. I prayed for God to please help me be the light to those children that He wanted me to be. I felt better as I went to bed but I was still feeling bad about the ugly feeling I had and what it might have done to the children.
God spoke to me from His word the next morning when I opened my Bible to read scripture and pray for two High School students. I participate in Wall of Prayer where I read a scripture and pray for two High School students everyday to keep them covered in prayer.
This spoke to my heart to be sure to control the words and the tone of the words that come out of my mouth because they reflect the meditation of my heart. I must control them so they will be acceptable in the sight of the Almighty God whom I choose to serve. He is my Rock and my Redeemer whom I thank daily.
Until next time think about Romans 8:28 “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who are called according to His purpose.
