Every Sunday A Psalms: About God’s Spirit

Daily Devotions for Sunday: by Christina Farris

Psalms 36:1-12 KJV
(1) To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD. The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
(2) For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
(3) The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.
(4) He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
(5) Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
(6) Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
(7) How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
(8) They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
(9) For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
(10) O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
(11) Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
(12) There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

Many of David’s Psalms testify of God’s Spirit working in His life. David was anointed by the Holy Spirit to be king. To be king was David gift. What a royal position. Saul was anointed by the Holy Spirit and God’s Spirit was taken from him, and evil spirit caused havoc in his life. The Holy Spirit is sealed upon all believers in Christ Jesus. Saul only bridge to God was a prophet or a priest that could only do the sacrifice required for forgiveness of sin. God did not forgive Saul for disobedience. Yet disobedience is now covered by the one time sacrifice of Christ Jesus. Saul never repented for his disobedience. Yet David was a repented man who found the mercy of God on more then one occasion. He found not only God’s mercy, but God to be a teacher, a protector, a comforter, a supplier of the wantonness of the soul for pleasure. God satisfied David’s heart in every way.

David had seen the evil ways of man, and those who feared not God, and yet he knew for himself that his desire was to obey God to follow God’s instructions and not to follow evil despite the human nature to do so. David, a king and a man born of God’s Spirit upon belief, and forgiveness given with repentance. Yet he had to do the sacrifices without having the one sacrifice Jesus. In the Old Testament the Spirit of God seems to be only given to certain people. In the New Testament He is given to all that believe and ask God for the ability to share the Gospel, to do a work designed by them to do. David was experienced in the Spirit. He knew what was to be corrected, but he still had intercessor of a priest and a prophet when he sinned. Jesus would be the intercessor for all mankind upon belief.

If you desire to have the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost to empower you for service whether it be a king, or a broom sweeper ask of God. Do not let this day go by without the empowerment of God’s Spirit to fill you with the power and the word’s of God for His service. Believe and receive is all you have to do. God desires to fill you with His Spirit for His service so you can testify of His works and who He is.

Dear Heavenly Father may the grace of God be glorified in the life of all believers. May every believer have the voice to share your word according to your Spirit and grace. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Daily Bible Verses: 1 Samuel 2:9-10 KJV

(10) The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

(28) Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
(29) For our God is a consuming fire.

Time Of Christ: Christ Final Instructions

Daily Devotions for Saturday: by Christina Farris 5/24/2015

Luke 24:45-53 KJV
(45) Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
(46) And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
(47) And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(48) And ye are witnesses of these things.
(49) And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
(50) And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
(51) And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
(52) And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
(53) And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, and rightfully so it is the day of remembering that the power of the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples to spread the Gospel of Jesus and to share the might works of God. Jesus before He ascended into heaven told his disciples to go to Jerusalem and their they would be endue with powered from on High. This is speaking about power coming straight from God, that power of His Spirit to enable the teaching of who God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is.

Jesus gave simple instructions that this would happen in Jerusalem. One has to remember for forty days after Christ death that Jesus was in his home town preaching. He did not remain in Jerusalem after the Holy men of old had risen up. He did not remain in Jerusalem where the temple vail had been ripped, but he continued teaching his disciples and those that would listen about the works of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. His finaly teaching while on earth was about the Spirit of God coming to enable them to do the work God had called them too. Power from on high. Power to enable the saints of God.

The Holy Spirit power is for today and demonstrated in the gifts of the Spirit to teach all truths about God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That the power of God is not a game or a charade, but a gift from God. A gift from God for all that will receive the Holy Spirit to do the work of God in their life. To enable and to empower them for the work of God.

Dear Heavenly Father you know the work you have for each believer to share the truth of who you are, as well as your Son and Holy Spirit. Enable us to do your work by your Spirit and to teach all truths. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Daily Bible Verses: Acts 10:42-43 KJV
(42) And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
(43) To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Daily God’s Promises: Acts 2:17-18 KJV
