Three salient points to consider while pondering blessings in discovery.
Clear is Kind
Be Spiritual. (Powerful). This is fundamental to our walk in Christ.
The blessing of this rhema, is that when God places it in the heart, I discovered it is not just merely hearing the words, it is a constant gnawing, a spiritual awareness, a revelation, and a constant reminder to be spiritual. Gal. 5: 22- 23 Eph. 6:12.
Jabez prayer (I Chronicles 4 : 9 -10)
The Lord is gracious – He places the umbrella of prayer, as a covering from inflammation, unintended or perhaps not, shielding us from the pellets of unforgiveness, bitterness, and strife.
We are all in the Potter’s House. God is merciful.
Additionally, I heard from a contemporary writer/advocate perhaps Doris Kearns Goodwin these valuable words; Clear is Kind Romans 13:13 KJV
Some other words to Ponder: from DKG –
“Vulnerability – Only path to courage”
“It is the Birthplace of Empathy, What can blossom – trust, innovation, and creativity”
DKG – contemplates these questions:
“Can I manage risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure”
“Can I stay in the hard conversation” Genesis Chapter 32.
“Can I as for feedback when it is hard”
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Let us be encouraged, knowing that our Lord is ever present, and ever able to Forgive.
Let us be kind one to another; redeeming the time, knowing that the Lord loves us, “ His compassions fail not.”
. 21This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24
