I use to write journals when I was a kid and even in my teenage years. I heard a man speak about a prayer journal and I tried that for some time, but did not last. My blog, angelcasiano.com became the place where I poor out my soul. I am not perfect; don’t claim that everything I write here is perfect; but it is honest, I can say that! I recently felt, this time from the Lord, to get serious about a prayer journal, so here I am again!
During my prayer time today I felt the sweet presence of my Father. At the dining room table, as wrote in my new journal I felt the Lord say,
In Mathew 5:6, I the Lord, said and continue to say today, for my Word is true yesterday, today and forever; “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.”
The heart of men will always be a dissatisfy heart without Me. Let them play with their phones, let them get lost in social media, in their jobs, in their careers, in their weekend parties, in their ambitions, their busy lives, always saying they don’t have time for Me, let them get lost in their disrespect, as if the could have true life without Me; let them get lost in all their worldly passions and desires. They will never be satisfied without me.
Only those who pursue holiness, only those who are hungry and are thirsty for my righteousness and only those who ardently desire my holiness will be filled, says the Lord.
Depart from me I never knew you (Matthew 7:23), I will say to those who ignored me, Depart from me I never knew you, I will say to those who are busy in ministry, but do not have time for me. They manipulate statistics, they try to make it look as if I am in their midst, but I am not. Even those who, with great confidence, count themselves as part of my family, I will say depart from me I never knew you. How long are you going to continue waking up in the morning, going on by your business ignoring me?
The first commandment is to love Me above all things. You arrogantly listen to my Word as if my Word does not demand a response, as if my Word is just a motivational speech, a feel good expression with no authority. I am God who has the power to save your soul. I am the King of kings and the Lord of lords who gave my life for you for no other reason other than my love for you.
Come to me! Are you tired? Come to Me!… Are you frustrated? Come to Me! Says the Lord!… Are you struggling with sin? Come to Me!… Are you depress? Come to Me!… Are you confused? Come to Me!… Are You angry? Come to Me!…Is your marriage in trouble? Come to me… Are you in fear? Come to me!… Are you filled with complaints? Give them to Me. The Psalmist gave Me his complaints and his troubles, “I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.” Psalm 142:2 (KJV) Why do you run to the phone to call this or this other person? Can you not come to Me? Have I closed the door?
Why do you talk so much and pray so little? Come to Me! Why do you complaint so much about the church? Is your Christian life defined by what takes place once a week for a couple of hours on Sunday?
Where are you on Mondays? Come to Me! I want to spend time with you! Where are you Tuesday? Why don’t you give Me an hour? Am I not here waiting for you everyday? Am I not available for you every everyday, every moment, every hour? Come to me!
