Series: Seven Unshakable Life Declarations
Introduction: The person living an unshakable life is one who builds on the unshakable word of God. His life is anchored, immovable, and indestructible. To live this life, it is important to make faith declarations. A faith declaration unites the heart and mouth to declare by faith the word of God and unshakable life declarations.
Today's message is "I Will Have an Overflowing Heart." There are many voices that try to get our attention, and many voices that would seek to shape our life and destiny. The voice that is most important is the voice of God that speaks loud and clear in your own heart. The voice of God is heard most distinctly when the heart is overflowing with the Holy Spirit, overflowing with the things of God, and when it is filled to the brim, flowing over the sides and full in every way. A.W. Tozer once wrote, "The Holy Spirit speaks to thirsty hearts whose longings have been wakened by the touch of God within them."
Psalm 27:7-8 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You, "Your face, LORD, I will seek."
GNT Hear me, Lord, when I call to you! Be merciful and answer me! When you said, "Come and worship me," I answered, "I will come, Lord."
NLT Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! My heart has heard you say, "Come and talk with me." And my heart responds, "Lord, I am coming."
Message Listen, God, I'm calling at the top of my lungs: "Be good to me! Answer me!" When my heart whispered, "Seek God," my whole being replied, "I'm seeking him!"
Young's Literal Translation Hear, O Jehovah, my voice-I call, and favour me, and answer me. To Thee said my heart "They sought my face, Thy face, O Jehovah, I seek."
Our declaration: I will fill my heart with God's word, prayer, and praise. For out of my heart overflow the inner voice of God is hear clearly, powerfully, and distinctly.
