15 Sep The Secret to Fulfillment
The Lord is near to all who call on Him,
to all who call on Him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him;
He hears their cry and saves them. Psalm 145: 18-19
From this Psalm comes a promise from our Heavenly Father that He will come near and help us when we call on Him. It actually says He will fulfill the desires of those who fear Him.
It’s really reassuring to know that God hears our cries for help and that He will not only come near us, but will also fulfill our deepest desires and longings. It does say we need to walk in the fear of the Lord. That means to me that I need to be careful with my time, my actions, my thoughts and my words. The Lord sees and knows everything, and it is a great thing to live and walk in His Peace by honoring Him in everything.
This scripture means to me that I will be careful to honor the Lord with my time, to take time to pray, to call on Him and to ask Him for wisdom.
It also means to be careful to manage my time, to reduce the clutter in my life and set my heart to serve Jesus and the people in my life.
Dear Heavenly Father, I cry out to you today for your help and your wisdom. Lord Jesus fill me with Spirit and help me to walk closely with you today. Help me to bless people today with your love and life-giving words.
