Have patience, and just believe you'll come up outta this, if you stop believin that ........YOU GONNA GO DOWN,
just believe, I believe I'm gonna come outta this, I don't know how, I don't know when, I don't know what I'll have to go through, but I still believe I'm comin outta this.
The bible says without faith it is impossible to please Him.
There is nothing harvested in your heart, that God is interested in like your faith, He doesn't need your talent, He doesn't need your voice, He doesn't need you to draw for Him, He doesn't need anything you got like He needs your faith.
TO NOT BELIEVE HIM IS AN INSULT!!
Begin part 4
Without faith it is impossible to please Him....
For he that cometh to God, must believe that HE IS.
And if you don't get anything, GET THIS:
That HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.
God said "there is no way you can seek Me, and not be rewarded."
If you diligently seek Me, I don't care, you can be snoop doggy dog, you can have been arrested 3 times, you just got outta alkatraz, I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE, I don't care what color you are, I don't care what university you went to, I don't care if you can't spell yah name, I don't care what you're up against, God said there is NO WAY that you can diligently seek Him and not be rewarded. So if you don't get the reward it's your fault.
He that cometh to God must first believe that He is, and He is a rewarder, of them that diligently seek Him.
I don't know anyone that ever became successful at anything, that they diligently seek after it.
In most other cases,any other way, you lose.
That's why people that get the lottery are broke in a year, it didn't cost em nothin', SO THEY LOSE IT EASILY.
The strength in keepin it, is in the pursuit of GETTING IT.
She said when I finally found my beloved, I got a hold on Him, and I wouldn't let Him go.
Paul said I INTEND to apprehend that which I am apprehended of.
And I am going to keep on pressing, until I have brought Him into my bed chamber, and He has become a part of my most intimate life.
And now finally Psalms 27
The Lord is my light, my salvation, whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength in my life, in whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked and my foes came upon me to eat of my flesh, they stumbled and fell,
though a host should encamp against me my heart shall not fear...
It is obvious by the first three verses that David has really been in a fight, I mean a real fight, I don't mean something came against him, a mean a HOST came against him, WAR has risen against him.
And yet his mind doesn't seem moved by any of these things....
He doesn't seem like he's read matthew 6, he doesn't seem to have taken any thought about any of those things that rose up again him.
And you can't figure out how he can have that kind of conflict and have this fearless faith until you get to the next verse.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after...
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life
to behold the beauty of the Lord, and inquire in His temple
When thou said " Seek ye My face"
my heart saidest unto thee " Thy face Lord will I seek"
I'm gonna tell you this, and I'm gonna let you go.
If you study David's life, you will find out the whole reason that God chose Him to be king was because David was seeking His face.
When Saul was rejected as king, and Samuel was weeping over Saul's rejection, God said "why are you weeping over what I have rejected?"
He said, " I have found Me a man."
"I have found me a man, who is after My heart."
You gotta understand this.
God wasn't saying that David was a pattern of His heart, because David had a whole LOT of issues, David had a whole lot of MESS, David had some STUFF Ya'll, but the thing that got David promoted wasn't his morality, it wasn't his integrity, David had one thing going for him:
He was seeking after God's heart.
God said I found me a man that's after my heart. He's writing me poems, he's singing me songs, he's dancing on a mountain top, he's blowing me kisses in the air, and I'm gonna make him king.
David's whole qualification, his whole qualification for being king, over Israel, and incidently he's the greatest king they've ever had TO DATE..
His whole qualification, wasn't his training, he didn't even come from a royal family, he came from the HOOD.
God said I promoted him, because he saught My face.
When you get through with trying to get promoted all these stinky ways that you are tryin to get promoted, sooner or later you are gonna find out that promotion doesn't come from the east or the west, but promotion comes from the LORD.
And when you get tired of seeking people, and you get on your face, and start seeking GOD, God's gonna open up things to you, that nobody else would give you.
God said I have found a man, who is after me, I finally chased a guy who was chasing me, HE WILL BE KING.
When you start seeking God, you will be king.
