To be like Jesus 233


“In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord unto Zachariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,

The Lord hath been sore displeased with your fathers. Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.” Zecharaiah 1 v1-3 AKJV

In our land, is the warning-the calling-the beckoning coming in this manner. The characteristic of its kind is the same. Not as some control method, but God knows and set forth in his original creation the choices that bring good for all humanity-the choice so highly regarded these days in speech is foiled in action-Let us turn his way.

Lord, I thank you for what is right, I pray your forgiveness be abundant as I know it is, and I thank you. Lord, this day is yours, Amen.

“And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that which standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws into pieces. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” Zechariah 11 v15-17 AKJV

The beauty of one God, one word, one way to heaven attempted demise continues in the influence of desire to satisfy the unsatisfied, or fill the unfilled coffer, or attain the greatest in number yet the need is still persistent for the message of one God, on word, one fulfilled life, and one way to heaven.

Writing of so quickly defined as taken to an authoritarian position without choice. Yet nothing is farther from being true. Tis the one who always is in opposition that seldom brings the sustainable option.

“...execute true judgement, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.” Zechariah 7 v9,10 AKJV

Words to set so narrowly in ones momentous choice that passes by, not to reflect the immediate choice but intended to build the longevity of ones character in their desire to walk with God.

As the tree blows in the wind and reaches to its greatest heights wind cracks are developed to keep the tower from breaking of stiffly at the ground.

Lord, I thank you for this day. Amen

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor lanquage, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun. Which is a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” Psalm 19 AKJV

Where ever we are, he is there. There is no denial the horizon every day reaches boundaries of men around our world tying them together with one voice, his own. God is good, his purpose is good, and his word throughout the transparency of the heavens is heard, and in his way.

Lord this day is yours, I thank you. Amen

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed, For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15 v51-53 AKJV

Only the beginning of eternity, our journey. Lord we thank you for this day. Amen

“Jesus answered and said unto her,

Whosever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4 v13, 14 AKJV

Lord, I thank you for this day, as many needs arise I pray you meet them in you way. Thank you Lord, Jesus, for all that you have done and all that you will do. Amen
