Today’s Meditation 12/6/2017

“Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.” Zechariah 5 v1

The view of knowing right and wrong, of understanding true conviction in order to bring us to the knowledge of understanding our personal relationship with Christ can bring our own lives, communities, and our nation to a place of true repentance. God’s mercy will reign forever to those who will take heed to his word. The flying roll marked a curse on the face of the earth against stealing, lying, and swearing falsely (saying we are one thing and thing living another), and that judgement would come.

Through Christ Jesus there is an opportunity to live our lives in the shelter of his mercy and grace. In the book of Acts Jesus said, “What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.” Through the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ we have true life, but not to be used as a false pretense but lived out in our daily lives (because he lives in us and we desire to walk with him) so that the judgement of our nation stands right with the Lord. Be blessed today, Amen. 12/6/2017

Today’s Meditation 12/5/2017

“Thus saith the Lord to me; Make the bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck, ” Jeremiah 27 v2

The begining of knowledge is to respect the Lord, to understand that he is our creator and the creator of all things. Of course it is the choice of anyone whether or not to do so but by all laws and the nature of all laws our decisions on whether or not we do also come’s with results that many times determine the circumstances in which we live. God has no need to establish who he is because he is the “I am.” He gives us the word of direction at times to bring us to a better understanding of who he is, and that we can trust him with all of who we are.

In the book of Mathew he says, “come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Mathew 11: 28-30

God is the “I am” of all people. He is our refuge and our strength and if we learn of his ways and his statutes, we can find perfect peace in his plan for our lives, no matter who we are. I have made many mistakes, and am daily faced with decisions of my own and at times some that affect others. Lord, dear heavenly father, Lord let us put our faith and trust in you. Amen 12/5/2017

Today’s Meditation 12/4/2017

“These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgement of truth and peace in your gates:” Zechariah  8 v19

Specific things the Lord said “shall” be done, speaking to the people of Jerusalem. Tell the truth and let you actions be based on true justice and bring peace to your gates: Daily living doesn’t have to be confused with the sin of lying and all around motives of competitive self gain, nor should our commitment to others have to be driven by what we can gain for ourselves from them.  We should work to do everything we do as if we are doing it for the Glory and love of the Lord.  Have a blessed day. 12/4/2017 Monday

Today’s Meditation 12/02/2017

“Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptabe unto thee, and break of thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by showing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.” Daniel 4 v27

A dream came as a warning to the king, Daniel was called upon for thee interpretation of the dream. It was a description of what was to come and Daniels council to the king was to (break of thy sins) change the way he was living and begin living righteous to the Lord, not self righteous but Godly righteous. Also he was counselled to show mercy to the poor. This may have resulted in the lengthening of (tranquility-define as a state of calmness or peaceful). Question is, did the king listen. More so today, do I listen when the Lord speaks to me about living the way I should  and treating others the way that I should. Lord, let our ears hear what your spirit is saying to us as a church-the body of Christ. Amen 12/2/2017

Today’s Meditation 12/01/2017

“And judgement is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Isaiah 59 v14

When our worlds judgment seems all backwards and true justice looks like a place that in none existent in the streets of our land, fairness and equity cannot enter. True righteousness in the Lord Jesus’s redeeming power will shine through in his time. His promises will not fail. Hallelujah to the king of kings, the Lord of Lords will prevail and justice and equity will be blessed upon his children. Lord, this day forgive me for my failures, my iniquities, and let me seek that closer walk with you. Amen. 12/1/2017

Today’s Meditation 11/30/2017

“Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying I will be king: and he prepared him chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him” I Kings 1 v5

Lord, thank you for this day. Help me dear Lord not to assume that I am exalted above the place you would have for me this day. While I know some men trust in horses and chariots, or in our day their own abilities. Let us put our trust in you. I thank you for those skilled tradesmen I work with from around our God fearing, respecting nation and ask that you would guide them today in their work, in their relationships with family and others, and most of all in their relationship with you. Let me and all my family and friends always take our refuge, and strength in you. Amen. 11/30/2017
