The One who cleanses us is our very Lord and Master because He so desires to present you spotless that He comes low to take care of us as we walk.
Day by day, I feel more exposed before my Creator, as He reveals layers of sins and strongholds I must surrender to Him. Without His loving guidance, I would be full of shame, guilt, and condemnation. With Him, I realize this is the process of refinement. It’s His promise, His process in action, to present us holy, as He is holy.
(Luke 24:27) is one of my favorite verses because it highlights a fact we often overlook, especially regarding the Old Testament: all the Scriptures point back to Jesus.
These trees that we on our best day might consider “majestic scenery” are actually one of the Lord’s beautiful and recurring analogies for godly believers.
Deep roots ensure abundant fruit. God deposits His Word within our hearts, but as believers we must steward this seed by abiding in His presence, and allowing Him to teach us.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, ‘The Lord reigns!’
