What is God saying to you?

Thought for today.
September 18, 2020

 

Good Morning Mr. President,
As you start your day today with the weight of the world on your shoulders, may you be comforted in this:

 

Proverbs 21:1-3 NKJV

 

The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts. To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

 

The God that created the universe, our planet and indeed our nation, is the ultimate authority and counselor. Whoever holds the highest office of the land needs to contend with that. We make no apologies for being an American or Christian. Each President is called in their own time for such a time as this. Whether it's the rest of the year, another four more years, your successor or any future President, may this be the question that propels your decision making:   "What is God saying to you?"

We pray for our nation.
We pray for you.
God bless all.

September 11, 2001:  A day of tragedy,  a day of fear,  a day of uncertainty - a day of unity as a nation,  a day when government was united,  a day of bravery,  a day of a call to arms,  a day to cry out to God,  a day of brotherly love,  a day of response to a sense of duty,  a day to look beyond our own needs and look to the needs of others, a day of strength and courage.  For a brief moment in our nations history in the midst of catastrophe we shined. Our churches filled. Vigils were held and empathy and sympathy abounded.  At least that's the way I remember it.
 
Let your light so shine before men,  that they may see your good, works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

"But who do you say that I am?"(Luke 9:20).
Jesus  proposed this question to his disciples. 
I once knew a man many years ago. He grew up in a culture that required bible memorization at an early age. Fast forward he married a women of a different culture with a different God. Division and confusion ensued  over differences in their faith. They went on to have 2 children. He was a real go getter and had a couple of businesses. He began to question who God was and if He was. One day he left his wife and children. He was invited to stay in a spare room to figure things out and plan his next move. I rose early in the morning  to go to work. I  put a bible on the kitchen table for him with a note "Read This". Upon returning home the man was gone and belongings too. There sat on the kitchen table the bible with the note just as it was left. For some reason a prompting came to open the bible. There was a note; " I read the first page of the Holy Bible. I now know who God is. I am going home to my wife and children." This may be a time of division and confusion all around. But?
What is God saying to you?

DEEP CLEAN

 As I am sitting with the Lord this morning, I am quickened with the words, "Deep Clean."  This term has become a common term used in connection with COVID 19.  We are asked repeatedly to "wash our hands", "clean all surfaces."  Yet, may we not ignore the "germs" that are within our hearts.  Germs in the forms of attitudes, prejudices, hate, anger, bitterness, anxiety and fear.  Just as Jesus spoke of the cup washed clean on the outside yet filthy on the inside, Matthew 23:25-26, may we call upon our Great Physician!  He awaits and welcomes us with Grace, Mercy and Healing.  Approaching His Throne boldly, with repentance and humility.  Laying down, repenting of our agreement with the lies of the enemy that have kept us bound.  Lies that keep us inwardly "sick."  A sickness that we become accustomed to and learn to accept as, "well, that's just the way I am!"

Psalm 139:23 TPT. God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.

 

Holy Spirit, I invite you today.  Search my heart, know my anxious thoughts and renew a right spirit within me.

What is God saying to you?

 September 1, 2020

  I prayed to God. I pleaded, I begged, wrestled and cried out to God. I applied the acronym PUSH (pray until something happens). I pressed in. I looked at all the scriptures on prayer. I got frustrated. I didn't get a yes, no or maybe. Then I listened.  (that is called a relationship}

 

Jesus said:

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. John 10:27-28
