It has been our privilege to support this Children's Home and to know the children are being physically cared for, being taught the Word of God and attending school. We want to share photos of the precious children who are being so blessed through this ministry and you enabling us to do so.
Take With You Words
Barbara J White
"Take with you words, and tur to the Lord: say unto him ... receive us graciously, so will we render the calves of our lips." Hosea 14:2
How do we approach our Heavenly Father? We come with words, faith filled words based on what He has already told us in His Word. Because we are living in our New Covenant based on better promises, we do not plead for Him to take away our iniquity, our sicknesses and pain etc because Jesus already bore them once and for all and carried them away when He shed His precious blood on the cross. Redemption is a completed work! "It is finished", Jesus cried as He gave Himself for our freedom from all the curse of the law.
He does graciously receive us through the Blood of Jesus. We are now accepted in the Beloved. Free from condemnation and guilt ... what a glorious Gospel ... good news to a hurting, sick and dying world.
So believers, how do we come to the Father now that we have been redeemed? We come with words, presenting words of praise and worship. That is what it means to render the calves of our lips.
Hebrews 13:15 and 16 put it this way: "By him [Jesus] therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to his name... with such sacrifices God is well pleased."
Praise and worship are rendering the fruit of our lips. Make a decision to continually praise and worship the One who gave Himself for us, freeing us from all sin and the consequences of Adam's fall. It requires a commitment, not based on how we feel, or what our cirumstances are, but based on the Word of God. Do it in faith! Make it a daily habit, you will get so used to doing it it will become a regular part of your life. Don't take words of unworthiness, self-pity, complaining or unbelief. What pleases and blesses the Lord are "words of faith and victory".
Use your mouth to bless and praise the Lord... worship Him in spirit and in truth! John 4:23. The Father is seeking you today, desiring to hear your voice of victory and worship. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart!
