APRIL
April 1 
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.  Psalm 14:1 ESV
 
Numbers 15 

The Lord was specific about offerings under the Law.  The Lord is still specific regarding tithes and offerings: tithe is 10% of all first fruits and offerings are as He moves our hearts.  The Lord was specific about sin offerings under the Law.  He still is: repent and receive refreshing.  The Lord was specific about breaking the Sabbath under the Law.  He still is in that we are not to forsake the gathering together.  The Lord gave tassels for a reminder of His Law: He still does by writing His Words on our hearts and having it available to us.
 
Proverbs 11 
The Lord abhors dishonest gain.  Who has used the word abhors in a sentence this week?  I have, LOL!  Humility is important to the Lord so why would I want pride to reign?  All the money in the world won’t help when judgment comes to the earth but wearing righteousness will save those who do.  It is better to be completely silent than sin with words.  Generosity brings abundance.  This is a good reminder chapter on the blessings of the righteous and the calamity upon the unrighteous.  
 
2 Corinthians 10
When my thoughts line up with the Lord and His Word, I can’t help but be successful.  Spiritual warfare doesn’t work by natural means.  My thought life influences whether or not I choose God’s way of doing things.  Godly authority is to build up and never tear down.  I can only boast in the Lord Yeshua for without Him I am nothing.
 
Meditate & Apply: Methods change but God never changes.  His Word is forever the same.  Living for the Lord of course brings blessing whereas living for self brings calamity either in this life or the next or even both.  In order to be successful against the enemy and self, I must live by the Word of the Lord operating by the Spirit.  Leadership is about building others up and never tearing them down.

Amen to thought life influencing our choices, it really does! It influences our attitudes too.
