GOD, your God, is testing you to find out if you totally love him with everything you have in you. You are to follow only GOD, your God, hold him in deep reverence, keep his commandments, listen obediently to what he says, serve him—hold on to him for dear life! (‭‭Deu 13:3)

As I understand it, swordsmen used to test (or prove) their swords before a battle by whacking the blazes out of them on a tree, or rock. That way they would see for themselves whether the sword would stand the ‘real’ strain of an intense battle!

Doesn’t GOD have the right to test and see if we’ll trust Him enough to stand with Him, or run away to our harm …? ❤️

Sunday

Jesus answered, “Nicodemus, listen to this eternal truth: Before a person can perceive God’s kingdom realm, they must first experience a rebirth.”

Nicodemus said, “Rebirth? How can a gray-headed man be reborn? It’s impossible for a man to go back into the womb a second time and be reborn!”

Jesus answered, “I speak an eternal truth: Unless you are born of water and Spirit-wind, you will never enter God’s kingdom realm. For the natural realm can only give birth to things that are natural, but the spiritual realm gives birth to supernatural life! (John 3:3)

Listen – and LIVE ❤️

Saturday

In your day of danger may the Lord answer and deliver you. May the name of the God of Jacob set you safely on high!

May supernatural help be sent from his sanctuary. May he support you from Zion’s fortress! May he remember every gift you have given him and celebrate every sacrifice of love you have shown him.

Pause in his presence May God give you every desire of your heart and carry out your every plan as you go to battle. When you succeed, we will celebrate and shout for joy. Flags will fly when victory is yours! Yes,

God will answer your prayers and we will praise him! (Psa 20)

Thank you Jesus ❤️

Friday

You are God-Enthroned, surrounded with songs, living among the shouts of praise of your princely people. (Psa 22:3)

It wasn’t just raining, it was literally pouring down. The animal shed where we all met in Peterborough was packed to the edges and the worshippers were lost in worship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus, the Christ of GOD.

I was delegated as an usher for the evening and saw them come in. A family of three, husband and wife in dripping Sou’westers pushing a child of about 7 or 8 in an oversized pushchair.

The praises in song didn’t let up as the couple pulled away the covering on the pushchair so the child could see. I noticed how many around them saw her then, all twisted, horribly broken. The singing didn’t let up, in fact it seemed to reach a whole new level as people everywhere began stretching one hand out towards the girl and their other towards Heaven.

I stood in awe just inches away from the family. The father with his head bowed, his mouth moving wordlessly, the mother, her face tilted upwards, her tears mingling with the dripping Sou’wester.

The sound of Worship hit a peak and I genuinely thought my heart would break and then it happened. Suddenly the girl began jerking around in her chair. We all stared as if we were watching a li-lo being inflated at the beach. Her arms began to straighten, then her legs, then her back. She finally stood on her own just gazing around at everyone surrounded by the worship and shouts of utter JOY.

Her father fell to his knees, his arms outstretched to heaven. I caught his wife as she fainted … thank You Jesus. ❤️

Thursday

For we all have sinned and are in need of the glory of God. Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favour now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin! (Rom 3:23)

Wow – read it again and think about it … GOD freely gives away his righteousness and his gift of love and favour cascades over us.

Thank you Jesus ❤️

Wednesday

… you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” (Rom 8:15)

And it doesn’t just end there.

We don’t have to rely on the world’s guesses and opinions. We didn’t learn this by reading books or going to school; we learned it from God, who taught us person-to-person through Jesus… (1 Cor 2:13) ❤️

Tuesday

GOD, the Master, says: … “I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep. I myself will make sure they get plenty of rest. I’ll go after the lost, I’ll collect the strays, I’ll doctor the injured, I’ll build up the weak ones and oversee the strong ones so they’re not exploited.” (Eze 34:16)

I don’t know whether anyone else is experiencing this, but I’ve been waking up lately with Christian songs playing in my head …! Something GREAT is about to happen. I don’t know when, or how, but I’m expectant.

Maranatha. (Our Lord Jesus has come). ❤️
