Holy

Visiting our grandson’s school today, we sang a great hymn in chapel. Holy, Holy, Holy.

I have always loved this hymn.

I just read this:

Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word. -J.C. Ryle

Love that.

Running the Race

“Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word. And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in your rules. I will keep your law continually, forever and ever, and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts. I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame, for I find my delight in your commandments, which I love. I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.” Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭41‬-‭48‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews‬ ‭12‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

How will I make time to set my mind on Christ daily?

What is one weight that I might think and pray about laying aside?

What person could I talk to about my need to lay aside a weight or sin?

Listen and consider

“to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens; behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice. Ascribe power to God, whose majesty is over Israel, and whose power is in the skies. Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God! (Psalm‬ ‭68‬:‭33‬-‭35‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Glory alone to God!

Is this your answer to trouble?…

Let not the world and it’s troubles shake you!

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭20‬:‭1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress, the God who shows me steadfast love.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭59‬:‭16‬-‭17‬ ‭ESV‬‬
