BELOVED, IF OUR HEART DOES NOT CONDEMN
US, WE HAVE CONFIDENCE TOWARD GOD.  AND
WHATEVER WE ASK WE RECEIVE FROM HIM,
BECAUSE WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS AND
DO THOSE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING IN HIS
SIGHT.”   ( 1 JOHN 3:21-22 *NKJV )

Friend would you change the way that you live
if you knew that God knew all of your thoughts, and
all the desires of your heart?   Well Bill He does
for it is written, 
“HE KNOWS THE SECRETS OF THE
HEART.” ( PSALM 44:21 )
, and “THE LORD KNOWS
THE THOUGHTS OF MAN, THAT THEY ARE
FUTILE.  ( PSALM 94:11 )

When we try our best to have pure thoughts and
desires and follow the commandments put forth by
God, we often get our prayers answered.  For it is
written 
“THE EFFECTIVE FERVENT PRAYER OF A
RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS MUCH.”
( JAMES 5:16 )

So Friend the next time you pray, why not say
to God, 
“LET THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH AND THE
MEDITATION OF MY HEART BE ACCEPTABLE IN
YOUR SIGHT, O LORD, MY STRENGTH AND MY
REDEEMER.” ( PSALM 19:14 )

In His Love & Service,
