Notes From Charles Stanley on Psalm 119:97-105: 1. Focus on God and shut out everything else.
Realize you are listening and talking to Almighty God.
More listening than talking.
Most important activity in your life to get clear direction, answers to every question.
It is a way of life. It is a concentration on God. WHAT DOES IT DO?
1. Quiets your spirit—calms you down.
Enlightens your mind to think the way He does about your concerns and you’ll have His PEACE.
Increases your energy.
God will move you to be able to fulfill your needs.
God is an intimate personal God.
He knows what you need and will give it to you.
Purifies your heart–exposes sin in your heart. Talk to the Lord, here I am.
I need You to help me. Ask forgiveness and He will tell you what to do. He is always faithful to forgive your sins. Enlarges your view of God and His capacity of how deep His Love is for you. God is personally interested in every single facet of your life. He knows when you were born and when you’re going to die. Joshua 1:9 He promises to help you in all things. Increases the awareness of His Power in your life. You can do nothing without Him, but you can do ALL things with Him and do it in PEACE. Strengthens your faith. You can say,
Lord, I can’t do this, but I know You will enable me to do it.
Increases the awareness of His Presence and the possibilities.
Infuses you with JOY knowing that God is in CONTROL and you’re not doing anything alone. God will show you things that you would not see any other way. The TRUTH of God ‘s Word comes to LIFE in your life and fills your heart with awesome JOY and PEACE.
Why do I CALL YOU to be ALONE with ME?
