IDOK DEVOTION FOR MONDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2008
Oh, my goodness! I have had the best time this Sunday evening.
Satsuma First Celebration Choir lead us in worship with ‘All Bow Down’ tonight.
I was so blessed in the Sweet Presence of Jesus that I didn’t want to leave the sanctuary.
Jesus is so totally AWESOME to come here from Heaven to save us from ourselves and to prepare for us a place with Him forever and ever.
He came to us so we could go to Him! AWESOME. Just AWESOME!
John 14: 1 DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.
2 In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places (homes). If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you.
3 And when (if) I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.
4 And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.
5 Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, so how can we know the way?
6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.
Don’t you just love Thomas?
He’s so blunt.
But you know what I think? I think our God works well with those who just blurt it out there to Him.
No pretense, just say it like we’re thinking.
Is there Something that you just don’t get? Something that you really need help with to get yourself around it?
Blurt it out there TO HIM. He came all this way for YOU. He will surely show you the way.
LORD GOD, You are so AWESOME. Lord Jesus thank You, thank You for coming to us so we can go to You. Go to You not only to Heaven at the appointed for us time but go to You for everything in between here and then. Thank You so much for tonight’s pleasure and privilege of worship. I loved it! And I love You, more and more and that is my prayer: to be head over heels in love with You. I could ask for nothing more because I am certain that being head over heels in love with You will stretch and fill and grow me into Your image. So that is my prayer for our IDOKs that all of us will be so in love with You that we begin to think like You, talk like You, act like You, and love like You. Thank You for answering this prayer for it is surely Your Will.
And, Father, as we think about our IDOK Troops we know You are too, even more; that You love them perfectly and we trust You with them for protection of mind, body, and spirit. We trust You, Holy Spirit, to reveal the Sweet Presence of Jesus to them. And for Israel, our prayer remains for Her peace and protection. Our prayer for America remains a cry and plea for space and grace to repent. Our desire for the remainder of our list is to be strengthened in every way and to be at peace. Amen and amen.
