A Heart For God




It Is Written, Psalm 27:14, wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait I say on the Lord.
When most people accept Jesus as their Savior, they really don't realize what happened.  Because of that, they end up feeling empty because try as they might, very little progress is made.
Being born again is a spiritual thing.  God put something in your heart that controlled your brain to say the words and take the steps for salvation.  In many cases the brain took over, and your actions were no longer spiritual. Let's take a look at this.
When we were created, we were made in the image of God.  While many people realize God is a spirit, they don't realize that we are spirits too.  We become one with God.  Jesus received the Holy Spirit to be the power behind what He did.  We received the Holy Spirit, when we accepted Jesus as Savior, and the same power Jesus had when we were baptized in the Holy Spirit.  The only difference is, we do everything in Jesus name.
God sent His son to save man.  Jesus put aside His God status and became flesh, but he still had the same spirit we have.  Jesus fulfilled His mission on earth, but left instructions for us to continue His work in our turn.
There is only one way for us to do that.  Just as Jesus had to use a body, we do to.  We are just like Jesus, because we became righteous because of Jesus death and resurrection and our acceptance of Him.
Just as Jesus talked to His Father all the time, did what His Father showed Him and told Him, we must do the same.  Our Father gave us instructions in the Bible,  gave us Jesus as an example, and talks to us if we listen for His voice.
By reading God's Word, and following Jesus example, we will get closer and closer to God, and our hearts will be full of His presence.  You cannot will your heart (spirit) to do anything spiritual on your own.  It takes the presence of God to fill the empty space in your heart.  Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
