February 12 
...it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13: 6-7 ESV
Exodus 22 
In reading the laws that were given it makes me think that a person would be less apt to be a criminal yet, we know that if someone has an evil mind, their flesh will usually follow along.  The other thing is that God will still judge criminal, sinful acts because we will stand before the Lord at the Judgement Seat (2 Corinthians 5:10).  Our Lord takes serious anyone trying to harm widows!  Thank You Lord, that You are compassionate.  It is one of the many things I am so grateful for in my life!  The first of all things belongs to my God!  
Psalms 75-76 
75 I can always give thanks and this psalm is another reason because my God will lift up those who belong to Him and destroy the wicked who truly do evil without repentance.
76 Anything vowed to the Lord, I must keep and do!  I must always have reverential fear toward You.  I often think about how You responded to Job.  I was nowhere to be found when You did and do all of Your wondrous works.
Romans 15
Godly endurance and real hope lead to hope which births faith.  Again, the power of the Holy Spirit gives me abounding hope!  Thank You Lord for filling me with all joy and peace in believing!  It is truly overwhelming (in a good way, a humble way, yet a rather scary way) to think that God would use me to minister to people groups in various places around the globe.  Who am I oh Lord that You would do such a wondrous thing in my life?  May I please You in all that I do.  It is such an incredible honor to serve You in this manner.  May You be greatly received with faith stirred up in all who hear Your Word.  
Meditate & Apply: I will stand with everyone else before the judgment seat of Messiah.  There is a continuum of thanksgiving to be offered to You my Lord.  Why would I not fear You, my God?  I pray I never take You for granted, ever.  Thank You Holy Spirit that You give me hope that leads to faith.  I am truly overwhelmed with the things the Lord has me do.  I so want to please my God whenever I speak.  May You receive all the glory, my God.  May I depend completely on You, Holy Spirit.
