Jewels From Judy
Friday, July 17 2015
This morning I woke up with a song in my head and asked the Lord what He was saying to me through it. (I so love how He answers when we take the time to ask Him.) Doing a little research, I learned the name of the song is "The Motions" by Matthew West. The psalmist pleads in his prayer:
I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
"What if I had given everything, instead of going through the motions?"
Through this song, the Holy Spirit is prompting me to ask myself if I am giving Him everything. I believe He is asking you the same question. Are we going through the motions? Are we allowing God's all-consuming passion to burn inside of us? Are we giving everything? If you are like me, you see areas of your life where we do not give God everything. That's a tall order, but is it impossible? Jesus told us that with God, all (ALL) things are possible.
We have to each go to the Lord and lay our lives bear before Him and like King David pray, "Search me O God and know my heart.see if there is any wicked way in me." Ask the Holy Spirit to "create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me." Let's not "go through the motions," rather, let us go after God with everything within us!
In the Father's love,
