February 13 
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16 ESV
Exodus 23 
God’s commands are so we can fulfill loving Him and loving our neighbors.  The Lord wants the land to rest so it will produce better and He always has the poor on His heart.  The Lord is to always get the first fruits of all I receive.  The Lord sends His angels before me.  I am so grateful for this especially when I travel to foreign ground.
25 You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.  26 None shall miscarry or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.
I need to understand that when the Lord fulfills a promise “little by little” it is for my benefit.  There is no relaxing with the world.  The word “tolerance” is horribly misused.  I cannot tolerate anything that is not of God or I get deceived.  Sin is sin.  If you can, read today’s AFAs article about libraries.  
Psalms 77 
Meditating on all that the Lord has done for me and how wonderful He is keeps me from negative attitudes in an extremely messed up world.  
Romans 16
Over the years people have come trying to cause division and obstacles.  We cannot tolerate those with truly evil motives against the church of God.  I am to be wise to what is good and innocent to all evil and train and disciple the people with these same instructions.  The goal our God has for us is to come to obedience of faith for it is faith that pleases Him.
Meditate & Apply: I want to think today how the angels protect me and go before me.  Serving the Lord brings all blessing to my life.  Meditating on You Lord keeps me from getting lost in thinking about the evils of this world.  Have great faith, Terry for it pleases my Abba.
