We bless you in Jesus mighty name!
Psalm 25 Believe ~ Your secret’s safe with me ~ Demand and Supply
Psalm 25:0-2 1 Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
At some point in life we have all experienced the desire to get Victory over our enemies. Years ago on ABC Family there used to be a movie called, “Face the Tiger” where a young American boy was being bullied. An old Chinese man, full of wisdom told the boy that the best way to end his problem was to turn around and face the Tiger. He told him of a little Chinese boy who had been harassed by a tiger in the same way that he was being harassed. Sure enough, the boy did the
same thing that the little Chinese boy who had done. He turned around in his tracks one day and confronted his attacker. The attacker was so shocked, he shouted something degrading and ran away.
If we have the Faith in our God that we are claiming, knowing that nothing by any means shall hurt us, why do we attempt to run from troubles? There is a time biblically when people ran from troubles but only on God’s Word. I recall Mary and Joseph running from the evil King Herod who had all intentions to kill baby Jesus. (Matthew 2:13) The only reason that they ran was because an angel of the Lord came to them and told them to do so. When you run from troubles, did God tell you to run or did you take it upon yourself? God expects for us to wait for His Divine Direction. (1468 TCR) Divine Driections are explicit directions that are given to individuals. There, sadly, are many ministers who were called by God to do a certain thing and there are the self-appointed ones. They do what they want when they ‘feel’ like it. The saying says that some were called and sent and some just plain ol’ went. True is the case. In this microwave
society, we want everything quickly. Many assume leadership without going through the proper channels and experiences to do so. Some were thrown into leadership because they are family members and once they are placed in office they have no idea what to do.
Many times David enquired of the Lord. Do we? The one time that David did not enquire of the Lord….he sinned! There are people who will not eat or drink unit they’ve asked God first. He keeps us out of the paths of destruction. Do you realize how many times God kept you from choking to death by prayer? There was a movie with a man by the name …..(con’t)
Mercy is not receiving something that you do deserve. I tell people to think of being in court. The judge can hand down a very strict sentence on you but you repent of your deed and beg for mercy. Instead of 4-5 years in prison, you get probation. THAT is Mercy. AS far as Grace goes, you have God’s Grace every time you breathe in His air. Capish? Amen.
Vs 10. All the paths of God are Mercy and Truth to those of us who believe. We keep His commandments because we love Him. His testimonies are true. The testimony of His Son Jesus the Christ is a powerful and true one. If it weren’t for His awesome Love, we would be an old, discarded design because God would just take another set of humans, Heavens and Hell and call ITaday.HeissoGoodtousthatHeallowsusto accept our new design through the acceptance of the work of the Cross by Jesus, His Son. When Jesus captures us up to the Heavens on that Great and Mighty Day, we will not have these old decrepit and sore bodies but we will have our new, glorified bodies. Hallelujah! No cancer, no arthritis, no DJD, no Depression, no more sickness or pain. Nothing. This is why we have to also pray for others. I like to say, the more the merrier. Prayer is vital and causes us to be Victorious.
Verse 13 of Psalm 25 tells us that he who follows the Path of the Lord will experience an ease within their souls and their seed shall inherit the Earth. Yes, there are times where we must say, “Yea though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death” but God has that unseen hedge of protection around us. Pastor John Hagee in San Antonio, Texas preached about a man who entered his church, shooting wind cursing. Something whispered to this wretched soul to hate Pastor Hagee. Just as they do to others about you and I. He played an audio of the event that we may hear what happened. You can hear the man yelling and shooting. He shot all of his bullets in his gun at Pastor Hagee. One can only imagine how Pastor Hagee felt. Maybe afraid in the flesh but elated in the spirit because although the shooter had great aim, not one bullet hit Pastor Hagee. God and His angels would not allow it. “Ye though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death”……
What are you grateful for? Hast thou considered it? What has God delivered you from? I can even think of times when God miraculously put gas in my car so that I wouldn’t be stranded in a strange place somewhere. Have you ever driven and literally watched your gas needle rise before your very eyes? Believe. “With God ALL things are possible. He is real.
I am writing this to you not just to call myself a writer with a ready pen, (keyboard), but to mentally, spiritually and physically place all of the faith and power of God in me to your very eyes to descend deep down into your soul. Believe that He is. The beautiful songstress sings, “God Is.” One of my favorite songs. Hebrews 11:6 tells the reader, “But without Faith, it is impossible to please Him; for He that cometh to God must first believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Be diligent. Enquire of God when you come to that fork in the road. In this life you will run into many forks and many paths that the enemy of your soul places alongside God’s correct path. Enquire of the Lord.
Vs 14 says that the secret lies in him that fears the Lord. With this word “fear” meaning “respect” we ought to always put God first and He will see to it that His Divine Revelations inhabit our very being. God is your best friend, not man. Humans can be deceived and will deceive you. Continue to work on the Divine Friendship that you have been given. God is the ONLY one who would never repeat your business for a price. Everyone else can be bought. And some people are driven by fame and will tell your secrets for a dime. Even Secret Brotherhoods are telling on one another. They say that those who abuse Crack Cocaine never tell on one another. The saying is, “there is honor among thieves.” That has even proven to be a lie. I found that there are those who use the substance and they DO repeat what they know if the time is right. The Songstress on the radio sings, “Your secrets’ safe with me.” Even she is wrong. Make her angry and she will tell everything she knows. She later went on to have a baby to a married man so someone’s secret wasn’t very safe.
Praise God that Verse 15 says that God will pluck your feet out of nets. No weapon formed against you shall prosper and all that rises up against you shall fall. You should not fear what any devil may bring you. You are a Child of the Most High God.
In your believing, the worst that you can do is to set values of your belief system according to how you were raised, who you grew up around, the town you lived in or who your so- called friends and family (relatives) are. Sometimes these descriptives can be your downfall. I know a lady who has an awesome anointing on her life and an awesome testimony as well. She refuses to disassociate with negative people from her past and continues to play the same old role, from the same old town, that the same old people expect her to play. Let go and let God. God likes freshness. He uses those who enjoy the ride. Jesus said, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own hometown.” (Matthew 13:57). She is a hair away from finally letting go. Have you noticed the many great preachers that come from out of town? That’s why many travel. The “In knew him when’s” keep a man or woman down through gossip, jealousy, envy and strife. I know great singers who should be on television but they allowed “home- town” judgment to squash their dreams. They are older now, they don’t sing much anymore and God forbid that one of the home-town churches should invite them to sing!
Deliverance.The last scripture of Psalm 25 are of the writer asking God to deliver them from stresses, enemies and troubles. Their trust in the Lord is commendable. So should ours be. The only way to keep your Integrity intact is to trust in the Lord. People will identify you by your faithfulness. Learn to tell people that “God will bless you” instead of “Maybe God will.” If you are going through a rough time in life, and they ask how it’s going, don’t say, “It’s looking kinda bleak but I’m praying!” Say instead, “Sometimes it gets hard but God is STILL in control!” Believe without a doubt that your Romans 8:28 reward will follow. If the Sheriff has placed a padlock on your door and a Sheriff’s Sale on the window, don’t call it over until God says it’s over. I had a lady who worked at a well-known Loan Center, tell me once “Whew! I don’t see how God is going to help you in this situation!” It was a nasty thing to say but something in my spirit would’nt allow me to accept the thought that all was over. Needless to say….I DID get the loan and saved my home. Don’t ever give up. I keep going at things so much at times that my own children tell me sometimes to let things alone. I get Victory and it ends up being a wonderful example to those watching me. I exhaust my chances at times but I leave it all to God. When one way doesn’t work God has a better way. He will never allow his children to look silly or abandoned. Believe!
Prayer: Lord thank you for all of those times that You’ve helped me even if I didn’t ever realize that it was You. Cause my integrity and uprightness to preserve me. Lord I will wait on Thee. Amen.
