a random verse…

“And after them went Hoshaiah, and half the princes of Judah.” Nehemiah 12:32

The preparation for the celebration of the wall. Many came and received assignment on where their part would be. The importance of many gates to which great numbers would serve the task of these gates gave reason for motivation of a nation. This wall and it’s gates also gave real significance to the right reasons for coming into this nation and being a right part of it.

Jesus is our way into the family of God. He brings opportunity for us with right reason life’s positive conviction as a protection for each one of us. We accept him by faith leading to repentance and become a part of the family of God.

Lord, as we celebrate you we come boldly to your throne of grace for forgiveness. In that we find our celebration for the fullness of life that comes. Amen

Today’s Meditation 3/24/2018

a random verse…

“I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven;” Daniel 4 v13

The dream and the interpretation, neither was a easy or welcomed task yet even more difficulty lay ahead. Daniel could see the interpretation and knew he would have to deliver this truth to the king. Even then, the king continued reliance on the man made kingdom. The truth of the man of God then came upon the king. After all that he then …”I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High and I praised and honoured him that liveth forever, …”

God knows who we are, where we are, and what is to come. At times our circumstances could change if we only heard …”break off thy sins by righteousness,”… and acted accordingly some of the hardest lessons may be avoided.

His love for us leads us through what is needed. Lord, we thank you for all the right in who you are and in where you lead us in life. Let our ears hear what your word is saying to us. Amen.

Today’s Meditation 3/23/2018

a random verse…

“And they said unto him, There cameĀ  a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.” 2 Kings 1 v6

ongoing into the word…

…”And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enguire of this word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.”

…”for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him our actions are weighed.” …

Lord, help us this day to understand your word. Help us to understand the watchmen’s warning. Let us see this not as something to run away from but as a place to run to, your mercy and grace is with us forever and we are thankful. Let that right spirit be in us. Amen

a random verse…

“But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and said, Like as the Lord of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.” Zechariah 1 v6

The message of right continues its continuity throughout as does those who both choose to hear and those who choose not to hear. Our God reigns.

Lord, forgive us this day as we work to forgive others, help us Lord to understand the right in our choices based upon your entire word. Let us walk with you. Amen

a random verse…

“And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,” Ezekiel 32 v1

the verses continued…. KJV

“…take up lamentation…”

Shall any kingdom stand against God? No, none is higher. The grief of which lofty heights of the heart is to know certain destruction.

“Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set them for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever hear the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not the warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; thou thou hast delivered thy soul. …”

Lord, heavenly father, let us hear what your word is saying to us. Our job is not to choose our calling but to follow. Amen
