July 2  
Forgive any typos as my computer went crazy this morning, jumping around, keyboard working only when I restart, letters typing by themselves...
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” Jeremiah 17:9-10 ESV
 
1 Samuel 14 

“Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving by many or by few.”
I was in a history class and the instructor who was anti-God began to slam the missionaries and I began to pray quietly in the Spirit that the Lord would confuse her and immediately she said, “Where was I”, and she went to the next section of the lesson.  If not for the missionaries the gospel would never have spread and the great revival that came to our islands would not have been.  God can trump a curse against His people.  Foolish vows are just that, foolish.  

Isaiah 58 
The reason God would have a person fast is to be set free from wickedness and the bondage of sin whether self-inflicted or inflicted by another, and not for man’s own pleasure.  Our God always wants us free.  This is one of the things I am so appreciative about the Lord.  Life happens and often we have found ourselves wounded and the Lord wants us healed.  I am so grateful that He has healed me and my heart where pain no longer reigns!  He also wants us to always reach out to others to receive the same.  As I love and care for others, He sets me free!  Shabbat is important to the Lord.  We celebrate Sunday with getting in the Presence of God together and then going home and resting so we are ready for the week.  I rarely turn my phone on, on Sunday.  
 
Acts 10
15 And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.”
The Lord not only sanctioned all food clean for the Jews but He sanctioned His Believers clean whether Jew or Gentile.  
 
Meditate & Apply: God can easily confuse the enemy on our behalf.  Don’t make ridiculous vows.  In fact work hard at my yes being yes and my no being no.  It only took a few missionaries for this Island to turn to the Lord in the 1800s.  God can save by many or few.  He loves His created people and desire that all come to the knowledge and truth of Him so they can be set free.  I am so grateful that the Lord can and willingly heals not just the body but the hearts of people.  Salvation is for any who believe in the Lord.

Thank you, Lord, for freely offering salvation to all. May all freely receive!

As I love and care for others, He sets me free! One of the many gems of doing things his way. I love it...
