Repent, Pray, Seek Him
Reading these verses remind me of the song, “God On The Mountain.” The Psalmist tells us how low he had become, yet he is aware that “The God On The Mountain” is also “The God In The Valley.” He continually asks The LORD to help him.
The Psalmist tells us, “I have chosen the way of truth,” and in that “truth” he has found God. He asked the LORD to “quicken thou me,” “teach me,” “Make me to understand,” “strengthen thou me,” “Remove from me,” “put me not to shame,” and “when thou shalt enlarge my heart,” (all asking God, begging God for help.)
We as Christians have forgotten to beg, to plead to God for help. Too many times, “we use the world’s answer,” (The MasterCard©) to solve all our problems. We never pray, we never consult God for the help we need. We fail to remember that God IS our “Master Card.” (He is The One we need to turn to when financial problems arise.) When a medical problem crops its ugly head in our lives, (or our family’s lives,) our primary concern is “healing the body.” Our honest concern should be salvation for that person’s soul, (our eternal life in the presence of God and His Son Jesus The Christ).
Like this Psalmist, we must humble ourselves, go to God in prayer, and beg for His Will in our lives. We must never go to God and “Tell Him” what should be done.
If we are claiming Christianity, we have “chosen the way of truth,” Jesus the Christ.
You cannot go to God unless you go through Jesus. Regardless of Oprah’s opinion, Jesus is The Way. He is The Only Way. There are not
Many Ways, nor are their Millions of Ways.
(God tells us there is Only One Way.)
One God, The Father, One Lord, Jesus Christ. (Pull out your “Holy Master Card.”) Humble yourself, Pray, Seek His Face, and Turn from your sin.
Repent, Ask for His forgiveness, and Plead from your heart for His Will. Remember, “The God On The Mountain” is also the same “God In The Valley.”
