Eyesalve: Incline Our Hearts

By | Eyesalve

“That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. 59And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: 60That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. 61Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.” I ki. 8:58-61

I will not deny that if the church would display power like the early church did that she would get the attention of society. However, there is another way that the church can prove to this world that the “LORD is God.” We do that when we “incline our hearts unto Him, to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments, and His statutes, and His judgments.”

Eyesalve: God’s Thoughts Are Higher

By | Eyesalve

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isa. 55:8-9

Ministers and ministries put forth great effort to promote and build large extravagant church buildings with clever programs to function on the inside. The masses can’t help but to think that God certainly has to be behind such great success. However, these things may seem huge in man’s estimation, they are puny before God. Man can do all those things on his own just by raising enough money. God’s thoughts are higher than man’s thoughts. God’s thoughts believe the impossible to be possible. A thought that tells you to hold your rod out over a sea and it will split, is God’s thoughts. A thought that tells you to step in the Jordan, it will roll back is God’s thought. A thought that tells you to speak to the sun and it will go backward ten steps is God’s thought. A thought that tells you to soak an altar with water and then call fire down from heaven is God’s thought. Yes indeed, God’s thoughts are higher than mans.
