March 19  
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23 ESV

 
Leviticus 27
I have to say there is much I don’t understand about the vows under the Law as I have not studied it out but I do know that whatever, the tithe or anything else dedicated to the Lord, is holy.  Tithing and offering and being devoted to God is not to be taken lightly.  
 
Psalms 140-142
140 My God hears my prayers and He truly is merciful to me.  The evil will never end up exalted above the children of our Lord.  When it says that slanderers should not be established I can’t help but think of all who slander against those whom God has appointed whether in the Church or in the natural world of politics.  In the end the slanderers will not be remembered.  Lord, I do freely and lovingly give You thanks and I am so grateful that I can live in Your Presence!
 
141 I thank You my Lord that my prayers are a sweet fragrance of incense before You.  I think about being in India where the Hindu’s burn incense to their “gods” and it avails nothing.  I am so grateful that my prayers are what is incense before You, the one and only God of all who not only hears the cries of my heart but answers every single one of them.  
 
3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!  4 Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies!
 
There has been a lot in the daily reading lately about controlling what I speak.  There has also been much about keeping my eyes fixed upon You Lord!  If my eyes are on You, my speech will declare what is appropriate in Your sight!
 
142 Once again I am so grateful that my God hears my prayers and takes care of me and those for whom I pray.
 
John 18
I just love Peter!  What a transformation he has when he matures in the Lord, just like the rest of us who hang in there so we can mature in Him!  Christianity (Messianic Judaism) is not a secret religion.  It always declares who Yeshua is.  The Scripture is available for all to read without secret meetings like other so called religions.  Pilate, and all others who think TRUTH is relative – Yeshua is the only way, truth and life!  Outside of that, there is no TRUTH.  Is this not like our day (and I’m sure every generation for history repeats itself) to put innocent ones in prison and set insurrectionists free?
 
Meditate & Apply: My tithes and offerings to the Lord are to only be holy.  My heart must be right before my God for them to be called holy by our Lord.  My God hears and answers my prayers for they are a sweet smelling fragrance before Him.  I alone am responsible for what comes out of my mouth.  As I trust my God, keeping my eyes fixed upon Him and meditate upon His Word, what comes forth from my heart through my mouth should glorify my God!  Whom the Lord sets free is truly free no matter where we are.  Our faith presents no secrets.  Yeshua is the Way, Truth and Life and NO ONE gets to the Father except by Him.

In total agreement; my words bring forth life or death over all situations so I must be diligent to think before I speak.

Thank you for your comment! The tongue can cause so much trouble as declared in the book of James!
