I proclaim –
“I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes it’s boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!”
Thankful for a new week ahead. I’m tired of compromise and mediocrity. It’s taken me longer to reach this limit than it should have. Nasty things, these two! “Forgive me, Lord, my heart cries, and set my feet on higher ground.”
com·pro·mise: an endangering, especially of reputation; exposure to danger, suspicion, etc.: a compromise of one’s integrity or beliefs.
“God’s Word will never pass away, but looking back to the Old Testament and since the time of Christ, with tears we must say that because of lack of fortitude and faithfulness on the part of God’s people, God’s Word has many times been allowed to be bent, to conform to the surrounding, passing, changing culture of that moment rather than to stand as the inerrant Word of God judging the form of the world spirit and the surrounding culture of that moment. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may our children and grandchildren not say that such can be said about us. ” ~ Francis A. Schaeffer, The Shelter
me·di·oc·ri·ty: “a middling condition,” a middle state, moderate.
“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I will spit you out of my mouth.” ~ Revelation 3:15-16
I’ll let you know how my follow-through goes on my proclamation. Wish me well. I covet your prayers.
