Please read the scripture as it shows in this video:
Psalm 116: 1 – : I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live………..vs. 12 – How can I repay the Lord for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people……Vserse 19…in the courts of the house of the Lord –in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
I want to share with you a piece a volunteer sent me. I get these in my email box at the prison almost daily. Some are truly wonderful. This man is a solid Christian with a heart so full of love he can hardly contain his emotions, as you will see. He is elderly, not very well educated but serves the Lord as well as any fully trained seminary graduated pastor. I had to edit this a bit so you could follow it, but I want you to feel the love he feels for his Lord. I pray that you get a soaring spiritual release while you read his story of love.
“When I think of the greatness of God it is difficult to grasp that God is my Father. In addition, He is a Father who will never leave me alone. It is very hard to understand with a mind that is not yet developed where God desire for it to be in time.
I will be honest with you, I have never experienced a love that gives me so much security to know it will even be better the next day through eternity. My brother/sister, knowing I have a father who is God makes my heart over flow with so much joy that it makes it hard to finish this message.
The expressing of His love toward me is much more joyful than knowing He is my Father. I remember my earthly father telling me that he loves me while on his death bed. That was such a wonderful experience and I thank my dad for giving me something that nothing in this world is able to buy. I pray that my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will always have in their hearts the expressing of my love for each of them.
More than knowing my love for them, my heart’s desire is that they would experience God the Father’s love. There is no comparison with God’s love for me. There is such a hurting in my heart that any person will spend eternity in hell never to have experienced the love of God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.
My prayer for you is to open your heart to experience the greatest love that you have ever had or will ever have the opportunity to enjoy. I am not a shamed or afraid to tell you that God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit is my loving Father. I tell you, my friend, that no one can talk me out of the loving feelings that comes from God the Father. If you are worshiping/praising a god that does not move your spirit, soul(mind-will-emotions) and body to desire with a passion more of Him. I suggest you accept God the Father through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
