For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him. —II Chronicles 16:9

Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. —John 14:23

            Our Lord knows everything and everyone!   Wow… this is hard for us to understand in our finite minds. But His Word is clear— “Lord, you know all things” (John 21:17) and “Lord, you know everyone’s heart” (Acts 1:24). He knows you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsccUg4TDd8

            He knows those whose hearts are blameless before Him and He will give strong support to them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_ZWEO36jok Do you love Him? (Matthew 22:37-40). If you say yes, then you are being obedient to Him.   This is what His Word says— “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word.” To love our Lord Jesus is to obey Him. Jesus said, “”Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46).   Obedience to what Jesus says shows that we do honor Him as Lord and also that we do love Him. It is through this loving obedience that our intimacy in relationship deepens with Him.

            We are blameless in Jesus and now we need to be obedient to Him. How can we be obedient to Him if we are not listening to His Word regularly, daily? We need to know what He desires us to obey. Then when He speaks to us we need to be and do what He says. Following Jesus is not an optional possibility, it is a lifestyle reality. Following Jesus is not to be a compartment of our life, but He is to be our life! He will bless the loving, obedient, faithful follower. It that your desire? May it be so!

Dear Father it is my desire to be blessed by You. It is my desire to be strengthened by You. Oh, please help me to be faithful in Your desires and may this be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus that others would know You and love You as well. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eQd3K2Fxp4
