Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
Dear Lord, March 20, 2009
I have nothing to bring to you and had nothing to bring to you, although I thought I did, I now know it was all nothing. Nothing until You called me out and now I am something, something for you to use, something for you to tailor to your needs, something You delight in, something that has everlasting value, something that now knows love.
So many times I came to your altar and felt nothing happened, but now I know you were with me all the time and you knew I’d pass the test. It was that wonderful day that again I came to your altar and you brought me out. You brought me out to your marvelous light and told me I never had to go back. Back to a place of wondering if I could keep it. Wondering if I could keep what I had experienced with you. You brought me to a place of security in You to where I run to your Presence and everything else is nothing, compared to you. You have brought me to a place of boldness of knowing You in the spirit. You have brought me to a place to help others to be lead by your Spirit.
You gave me the gift of the Holy Ghost but it took years of hanging in there, years of waiting, years of wondering, years of testing but it was all worth it because now I’ve made it. Made it into your favour and there’s only looking ahead that matters, looking ahead to eternity with You. You are what I live for and delight in submitting to your awesome power and unrelenting love for me. Dear Jesus, you have my permission to “alter my altar”. Today I hear your voice and will place on the altar what you request of me, not what I am willing to give. I will give you whatever is required to hear your voice so I may obey you.
