Thoughts on my journey to heaven

The Lord is nigh

I love page a day calander – especially when they are verse a day. Today the verse is an old favorite I have strived to memorize:

The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
– Psalm 145:18-19 (King James Version)

Years ago as a new believer someone challenged me to break down verses of the bible by asking questions. So lets break this one down:

* Who is this verse referring to? The Lord
* What does this verse tell us about him: He is near us, he hears us, he will fulfil desires, He will save us.
* What does he require of us? Call to him truthfully, with fear

Application – if we call to the Lord with honesty, and a sincere fear of him he will answer us, he will save us, and beyond simple salvation the Lord will work to bring the desires we have within us to life.

But then again, he is the author of our salvation, and I truely believe he will put into our hearts the desires that will bring us to him, and bring glory to his name. He has put eternity in our hearts!
