Heart Exchange

I offer Him my cold, dead heart
I offer Him my good deeds done with false motives
I offer Him cold, dead obedience


Only His life is life
Only His life has pure motives
Only His life is mercy


"Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a spring of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!"  Jeremiah 9:1


His heart carries a burden
His heart is compassion


My heart must go down in death and
His heart must arise in resurrection


Nothing else will do
Nothing else will do
Nothing else will do

God is angry with the wicked every day. Probably not!

I don't know Hebrew, I'm not as smart as John MacArthur, I could be wrong, but I think the annoying monk who put verse numbers in our Bible really really screwed this up.
"God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day."  Psalm 7:11

I think, that this is not an accurate translation and there should have been a division where the "and" is, and the "el" as it is translated other places is the word "god" not "God."

More on this later, lets look at it, talk about it, and compare it to the volumes of scripture that contradict it.

Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord

Isaiah 40:1-5 1“Comfort, O comfort My people,” says your God.
      2“Speak kindly to Jerusalem;
            And call out to her, that her warfare has ended,
            That her iniquity has been removed,
            That she has received of the LORD’S hand
            Double for all her sins.”      3A voice is calling,
            “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
            Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.      4“Let every valley be lifted up,
            And every mountain and hill be made low;
            And let the rough ground become a plain,
            And the rugged terrain a broad valley;      5Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed,
            And all flesh will see it together;
            For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”


Perspective, it really does change how you receive and react to events in your life if you can, by the grace of God, have the perspective of God.
This end time generation has a call on their lives.  The call is to be a people who have been brought through the wilderness and have lived with no visible means of support, nothing to fall back on, just the faith of God.  The call is to live as a people who have allowed/received the deep dealings of the Lord, that root out self, pride, independence, and leave only a new heart, a servant heart, a willing heart, that truly does walk by the Spirit.
Every time self is uncovered and exposed, every episode where pride is brought out and revealed for the ugly thing that it is, every breaking of independence is a cause for rejoicing.  The way within us as individuals is being prepared and as we gather with others who are being prepared a people are being prepared who can truly, "Comfort, O comfort My people."

Walk By The Spirit

"I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will certainly not carry out the desire of the flesh."  Galatians 5:16
"so that the righteous standard of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit."  Romans 8:4
"Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh."  Romans 13:14
"Since we live by the Spirit, let us walk in step with the Spirit."  Galatians 5:25


I don't know how to walk by the Spirit.
Self is in control as evidenced by the fruit around me.


Time for my favorite two-word prayer... "Help, Lord!"
