Happy Independence Day! Thank You Lord that You birthed me in the land of the free and home of the brave!
I encourage you all to read this short article @:
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! Psalm 33:12 ESV
1 Samuel 16
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
I must operate in the Anointing of the Spirit as God designed for each of us. Refreshing always comes in the Presence of the Lord and David was a worshiper of the Lord, bringing His Presence.
Isaiah prophesied about what those from Sheba will bring and this is fulfilled when Solomon, David’s son becomes king of Israel, though I believe even more of this fulfillment is to come. Many Ethiopian Jews have already immigrated to Israel (Where Sheba’s location was). Israel has continuously been built up since 1948 and many finances from foreigners has built Her up, including us! Tourism rose 15% in 2018 bringing 4 million people and NIS (new Israeli shekel) of 18 million. The gates are open except the eastern gate to the Old City which the muslims have blocked because that is where Messiah is supposed to return. As if anything humanly built can stop Him! Eventually there will be no more threats and no more violence against Israel. When the Lord returns His light will be all we need! Wow!
The attack against the Apostles begins with the killing of James. Persecution against Jews and Christians is nothing new in our day. Why did James die and Peter get set free at this time? This is God’s business, the Knower of all things. It is really for Him to know and when it’s our turn to go and be with Him, for us to find out! It makes me laugh that no one immediately opened the gate for Peter.
24 But the word of God increased and multiplied.
So be it today, Lord!
Meditate & Apply: God always looks to the heart of a person and not the outward appearance. I must operate in my anointing, not try to do something that I was anointed to do. I love getting in the Presence of the Lord. There is no earthly high that could ever be greater than this! I love watching prophecy happen! It is so amazing and is the greatest way to know that everything God says comes to pass! This is why I can believe Him for all of His promises! May Your Word increase and multiple in the hearts of people, Lord!
Yes, I think one day we will super surprised how true this fact is on how God does not see us as man sees us. He knows us differently, and calls us differently than the world does. Thus the importance of confessing what he says over us, not anything else. This is a discipline for sure...
Agree - I must operate in the Anointing of the Spirit as God designed for each of us. We are individuals with unique talents and abilities, and it's best if we make those our priority.
Interesting note about the gate being closed, funny they think that'll make any difference.
