Your Word Have I Hid In My Heart
Preached on Sunday, September 9, 23018, the Year of Our Lord
By: Pastor Carolyn Sissom
Psalm 119 excels all the other Psalms. This feat of artistry is a literary monument of the Word of Truth. A thread which runs right through the poem’s rich tapestry is an appreciation of the value of God’s revelation. It is sweeter than honey (Vs. 103) and better than money. The Word of God is the writer’s delight and desire. It evokes his praise and his love.
Because he sets such store by the Word, he turns to the One who gave it, appealing in his time of trouble to God’s character and promises. Yet he is mature enough to realize that there is spiritual value in suffering and that it is God’s school. He recognizes the obligation to stay loyal to God through thick or thin, and he reports that despite intense persecution and harassment he has not let his LORD down.
God’s word is a lamp to his feet. He rejoices that it has sustained him in the past and been a source of hope and comfort, of practical wisdom, and a satisfying life. It is the basis of his hope for the future. He commends a life of trust and obedience, yearning that others may tread this path.
Ps. 119:11: Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Then as now, not many are concerned to this extent over the breaking of God’s laws by themselves or others. Sin is always a canker that corrupts and destroys the moral, mental and physical being. The New Testament clearly declares the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
In 1990, the call came to start a church. We officially incorporated. In retrospect, I now know that we were chosen to be a part of the ushering in of the Third Day Glory Church. At the time, I was preaching by vision and Spirit of Revelation. As in every move of God, we came under heavy persecutions. However, the Lord was more than faithful. He raised up dear Pastors, Prophets and Ministries to stand with us. Those great warriors continue to be a part of the Eldership of this ministry.
We had incredible visitations and mighty outpourings of the Glory of God in our meetings. Hindsight now reveals that without the persecution, we would never have dug in. Also, we had to be tested by persecution in order to overcome and be proven to produce fruit 30-60-100 fold.
In 1997, my husband’s company moved us to Houston, After a much needed rest and time to reflect on what had transpired in those 7-years in Baton Rouge, the Lord again directed me to start a new work here in Houston.
This came in along with the Golden Glory Revival. The Lord did not tell me that I would be a conduit of the Golden Glory, but that I was to prophesy it. I was preparing to teach on Gift of Miracles at a community Bible Study. Our friends, Barney and Joann Fuller, mailed me the book by Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory. I read the book on a flight to Los Angeles. That night I awoke, sitting straight up in my bed. The room was filled with golden angels. They were all singing the song recorded by Candy Christmas, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, THAT’S MY STORY.”
Prior to this visitation, the Lord spoke to me around November 2000, that wherever I went, I was to declare the Glory of God.
It seems that no matter where I preach in the Bible, I end up with only one message, the declaration of the Glory of God: Feast of Tabernacles, The Holy of Holies, the Mountain of the Last Days,The Overcomer, The Sons of God, The Kingdom of God, The Joseph Company, The Bride of Christ, The 144,000, The Remnant, Those who pass under the Rod, The Branch of the Lord, Those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes, Mt. Zion, New Jerusalem, etc. etc. All of this plus more tell only one story, “GLORY GLORY GLORY.
We are an apostolic ministry as well as prophetic. Our desire is to reveal Jesus Christ in the fulness of the Majesty of His Great power and Glory
“Until we all come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.“
Carolyn Sissom, Pastor.
