Closer than Yesterday!

Psalm 73:28 “But as for me, the nearness of GOD is my good…”

I have made the LORD GOD

my refuge, that I may tell of all YOUR works!

Closer than Yesterday!

Let YOUR NAME consume

what remains of Self

Till “Hid with CHRIST” — 

between crimson letters.

Consume me then with 

YOUR sovereign truth

and move me with 

such pure conviction.

For this battle lukewarm

daily rages…

with GOD’s good — apart

— from “self labeled” works.

So “Credit worthy”, 

(whatever I call them)

then of “perfect error”

must be suspected! 

Now my endeavor

must shorten that gap…

until every movement

draws closer to CHRIST.  

As HIServant serving relentlessly in HIS steps, in order to draw closer as you are,

Whitney

Devotional: Psalm 145:18 “The LORD is near to all who call upon HIM, to all who call upon HIM in truth.

Well knowing our own frailties, isn’t it just good common sense to call on our CREATOR, reverencing THE GOD of all Creation? Yes!

Hebrews 7:19 “(for the Law made nothing perfect), and

on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near

to GOD.”

Even though we know our works pale in comparison to HIS finished work, still! We press on, clinging to Humility, being re-reminded of Contrition.

The goal then isn’t to focus on the gap but on how CHRIST becomes clearer in our sight as we draw nearer to HIM!

Amen and amen!
