I took no chance today, I was determined and excited to be in the House of the Lord, today, the last Sunday in December for 2013. GOD blessed me to see this new day with an early start. I jumped up with excitement, in prayer and praise. I even got in 30 minutes of exercise before I made my way to the House of The Lord. As I reflect on these past 52 weeks, I can honestly say that GOD has kept me in perfect peace: peace of mind and peace of heart. GOD has supplied my every need. GOD has touched and healed my body. GOD has protected me from all harm and danger, seen and unseen. For all this, I give HIM the glory.
I am taking NO chances in this life, every breath, every second, every minute, every hour, every day I will give GOD the honor and glory. I will continue to declare that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
I am reminded of King Hezekiah in 2 King 20:1-7
"In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord, saying, I beseech thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord. And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake. And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered."
King Hezekiah was spared with 15 more years, that does mean GOD will spare me or you for 15 more years. In the meantime, I will serve the LORD with all my heart, mind and soul.
