Power Corrupts Humanity

30 Sep

God’s Word: Psalms 99

God’s Attribute: (9) Holy is God (Holy means worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness.)

God’s Message to me:

My position as creator and ruler of the universe demands holiness.  Power in the hands of the evil is disastrous as you have seen over and over on the earth.  No one on earth is able to safely handle absolute power.  Power corrupts—holiness is a realm above the possibility of corruption.  No one on earth lives in that realm.  But what deep peace and satisfaction you realize when you experience moments when you are able to realize my holiness and bask in the limelight I shine down on you.

I have provided you open access into these moments to recharge your spirit but all too often you ignore my invitation to bask in my love and holiness.  Instead, you choose to worry and fret over things you have no control over.  Please, just trust me.  I am a lover of justice and will see you safely through life’s struggles and pain.

Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you—anywhere, everywhere, all the time.  You are never out of my mind.  To turn your thoughts toward Me is to worship me, to step into my realm of holiness and then reflect that holiness to those around you.  I comfort you in all your troubles so that you might comfort others in theirs.  In so doing for others a deep peace surrounds you—that is my spirit of holiness and you can “flesh out” in the unselfish acts of caring for others—with no regards as to what you receive for yourself.

God’s Question for me:

Will you come unto Me so my holiness can rub off on you and be spread over your little corner of the world?

God’s Promise to me:

I will be with you—wherever you go!
