Friday

Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war… 

God himself put it this way: “I’ll live in them, move into them; I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people. So leave the corruption and compromise; leave it for good,” says God. “Don’t link up with those who will pollute you. I want you all for myself. I’ll be a Father to you; you’ll be sons and daughters to me.” The Word of the Master, God.” (2 Cor 6:14)

This always reminds me of the story of the young girl who was being harassed by her friends for not wanting to join them on their planned evening out. “What, are you you frightened that your Dad might hurt you,“ they teased? “Actually, I’m frightened that I might hurt my Dad,” She responded.

Love is as love does ❤️

Tuesday

Lord, who dares to dwell with you? Who presumes the privilege of being close to you, living next to you in your shining place of glory? Who are those who daily dwell in the life of the Holy Spirit? (Psa 15:1)

I’d just left Bible College and we were offered a break with some other students in the south of France. Anyway, the Pastor of a small Church asked me to speak some words of words of encouragement at the Sunday service.  

We all prayed most of the night and I was excited. Then, Jesus came to Church… I remember the whirlwind of falling to my knees in abject loathing at myself – all my true thoughts, motives and desires parading in front of me!

The thing is, LOTS of people ran out of the place in fear – the few that stayed were blessed, healed and set free. 

I learned a great lesson that day – GOD is AWESOME! ❤️

Monday

… Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. (Psa 5:3)

All my heart breaking pieces of: “What can be done for ‘him’ or ‘her?’ And what about this, or that? And what can be done for them…?”

I can either shrug my shoulders in despair at all that’s happening, or talk about it all with GOD our Father, trusting and ‘knowing’ that He has heard and will answer. ❤️ 

Sunday

Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. 

Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you! (Psa 27:14)

Why do we give up – because we want our own way?

Why are we impatient – because we’re selfish and want it now!

Why do we separate ourselves from our entwinement – because we’ve learned nothing from Eve and like her, we can be easily led.

Why do we need to be brave and courageous – because we need to learn not to run away from hurt and pain and to stand with Jesus and face whatever stands against us ‘both’ full on!

Why do we need to keep hopeful – because GOD has ‘shown’ us how much He cares and even when he seems to fade away He is still bigger than anything that could ever try and rip us away from Him. 

Bottom line – He doesn’t want robots, He gave us free will and revealed Himself to us so that we could decide for ourselves whether or not we would choose Him. 

So to you – Child of the Living GOD, I say choose Life! ❤️

Friday

(GOD speaking) “… All your children will have GOD for their teacher— what a mentor for your children! You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble—nothing to fear! far from terror—it won’t even come close!

If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar.

This is what GOD ’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” GOD ’s Decree.” (Isa 54:11)

Our sister needed to remember this Promise yesterday, maybe you do today too? Thank You Lord. ❤️

Saturday

Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude.

Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ. (Phi 4:7)

Isn’t this a fabulous Promise? X

Wednesday

(GOD speaking) “But you … are my servant. You’re … my first choice, descendants of my good friend Abraham.

I pulled you in from all over the world, called you in from every dark corner of the earth, Telling you, ‘You’re my servant, serving on my side. I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’

Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.” (Isa 41:10)

The absolute truth of this promise needs to be tattooed on our hearts.

Be at Peace because NOTHING we can do (or not do), can rip our loving Father GOD away from us. X
