Cold Water On Our Head? ~ September 4

Cold Water On Our Head?

Now, that’s refreshing!

Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. Psalm 118: 19-21

This is my prayer for all of us; Open the gates of righteousness. We’ve each been given a golden key and written upon it is one word: Love. Love is the key, and it will open the gates of God’s righteousness.

There will still be trials, and we will still make mistakes, but our hearts will be as wide open as those gates, and as our love for God increases we will be filled with His righteousness and He will begin to mold us into the servant He intends us to be.

No matter our station in life, our ultimate responsibility is service to God, and as we learn about Him and His powerful love for us, we will become a servant to man as well. Love is selflessness, which to our earthly minds, is difficult and burdensome. Amazingly, as we draw nearer to God, it becomes not burdensome or difficult, but a blessing, and joy will wash over us like a glass of cold water poured on our head on a scorching hot day; a blessing so powerful it takes our breath away and sends shivers through our body.

Let the Lord’s love become your salvation. Be refreshed.
