“You are to be holy to Me; for I the LORD am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples (nations) to be Mine.” (Lev ‭20:26)

From what I understand, the Hebrew term ‘Holy’ is transliterated as: ‘other than’. As such, because our very spirits have been ‘reborn’ we are no longer subject to the pulls, tugs and outright demands of this world, but to be ‘set apart.’

The Hebrew term ‘set apart’ is badal, meaning: to separate, disjoin, as two places by a veil, fence or wall.

Jesus spells it out for us in his prayer: “I am not asking that you remove them from the world, but I ask that you guard their hearts from evil, For they no longer belong to this world any more than I do.” (John‬ ‭17:15) ❤️

Wednesday

… don’t turn your back on GOD. Worship and serve him heart and soul! Don’t chase after ghost-gods. There’s nothing to them. They can’t help you. They’re nothing but ghost-gods!

GOD, simply because of who he is, is not going to walk off and leave his people (you). GOD took delight in making you into his very own people.

And neither will I walk off and leave you. That would be a sin against GOD! I’m staying right here at my post praying for you and teaching you the good and right way to live. But I beg of you, fear GOD and worship him honestly and heartily. You’ve seen how greatly he has worked among you! (‭‭1 Sam ‭12:20)

Whether we understand it, appreciate it – or even like it, ‘someone’ has been tasked by the Holy Spirit to bring you before GOD – right now, in prayer!

And who instigated it? Not them – your name and need just popped into their heart! How humbling is that? Thank You Lord. ❤️

Saturday

So Jesus said, “I speak to you timeless truth. The Son is not able to do anything from himself or through my own initiative. I only do the works that I see the Father doing, for the Son does the same works as his Father.

“Because the Father loves his Son so much, he always reveals to me everything that he is about to do. And you will all be amazed when he shows me even greater works than what you’ve seen so far!” (‭‭John‬ ‭5:19)

Break this down – Jesus, the Captain of our Faith – the one who raised people from the dead, opened blind eyes, healed leper’s, and even more – is telling us that it is in, and during, his relationship with his (and our) Father GOD that he receives instruction as to what to do …!

“And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you. The world won’t receive him because they can’t see him or know him. But you know him intimately because he remains with you and will live inside you.

“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!”

“Loving me empowers you to obey my commands.” (‭‭John‬ ‭14:12) ❤️

Monday

So make wisdom your quest— search for the revelation of life’s meaning. (‭‭Pro ‭4:5‬)

I remember saying that I ‘woke up’ at the age of 27 – and I then began wondering what life was really all about!

Then at 29 my eyes opened and I ‘grew up’ – and recognised that in order to survive in this world, I had certain responsibilities that I couldn’t shirk anymore!

By the age of 31, I had already searched through and studied most of the worlds religions and ways of ‘enlightenment’ – including some of the more ‘stranger’ paths.

Bottom line … I believe that my ‘willingness‘ (my acceptance), to search for life’s meaning, opened the eyes of my heart enough to ultimately meet The True and only Living GOD in Christ Jesus. In Him I heard Wisdom speak: “My son, if you will take the time to stop and listen to me and embrace what I say, you will live a long and happy life full of understanding in every way.” (‭‭Pro 4:10‬)

Open the eyes of every heart Lord that reads this testimony Lord … ❤️

Good Friday

Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father.

Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him.

The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity. (‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:15)

(Jesus speaking) “… I have given them your message and that is why the unbelieving world hates them. For their allegiance is no longer to this world because I am not of this world. I am not asking that you remove them from the world, but I ask that you guard their hearts from evil, For they no longer belong to this world any more than I do.” (John‬ ‭17:14)

Through the Awesome sacrifice of GOD’s Son Jesus, WE have been reborn (born again) into our Heavenly Father’s Kingdom … ❤️

Sunday

Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life, and he will provide for you what you desire the most.

Give God the right to direct your life, and as you trust him along the way you’ll find he pulled it off perfectly! (‭‭Psa ‭37:4)

Spend a few minutes just now and think … “when was the last time I genuinely allowed myself to ‘connect’ with GOD?”

Do you remember how amazing it felt, how all your cares seemed to fade away?

GOD hasn’t changed. Go visit with your Heavenly Papa’ now, He’s waiting for you. ❤️

Friday

God is not a man, so he does not lie.

He is not human, so he does not change his mind.

Has he ever spoken and failed to act?

Has he ever promised and not carried it through? (Num 23:19‬)

I gave my heart to Jesus over 35 years ago and in all that time I can unequivocally state that He has always been and so IS Faithful!

Please forgive me for boasting in my Lord, but according to documented medical records I have come through cancer, heart attacks and a stroke, as well as a multitude of ugly side effects like steroid induced diabetes etc., but in all of this HE HAS REMAINED FAITHFUL.

I encourage you today to review Proverbs 3:5: “Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! ❤️
