And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive: But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.” Zechariah 13 v4-6 AKJV

Lord, this day is yours. The deceptions of this world lay in front of us, let us put our faith and trust in you. Keep us Lord in your way from a place so distant and dry in our land. Keep us to meditate in you, and in your word. Let us be thankful for all that you do. Amen

“And the Lord said unto me, Take 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 that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, tear their claws in 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 utterly darkened.” Zechariah 11 V15-17

Lord, guide us to you as a people. Lead our hearts and forgive our sins. Let those who would go an visit, and tell of the truth of you in the neighbors house. Let our church’s be directed by the one who truly knows you and desires to fulfill your calling. Set my own heart straight, that the gate of which you have chosen-will I go? Let my renew come as a strength, and I know that when it does, you will. Not of short sayings, or quick phrases-I am thankful for all that you have done. Amen

And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me. Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another. And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.

And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the Lord. And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord. Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.” Zechariah 11 v7-14 AKJV

Through all the difficulties God’s way will prevail, just and right. Lord, this day let us meditate on you word, that your spirit will speak to our hearts, especially those to a special calling in your work. Let us hear what your spirit is saying to the church. Time is soon coming to its fullest state in you. Lord, I thank you for this day, let me continue in reaching to correct my witness-your witness to others in me. Forgive me Lord, in this incorrect world of my partaken iniquities by purpose or mistake and let my convictions continue always to bring me closer to you. Lord, I thank you for this day. Amen

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the womb a second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” John 3 v4 AKJV

Life. New life. How is that to be?

Jesus answered,

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” John 3 v5 AKJV

Lord, I thank you for this day. Amen

For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous. The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.” Psalm 37 v17-22 AKJV

“Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blashpemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, thou ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.” John 10 V36-38 AKJV

Lord, this day is yours and as you are in us, let us live out this day that strengthens the faith in others by what is seen of our trust in you. We thank you. We are so very, very, thankful. Amen
