This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. Psalm 18:30 ESV
1 Samuel 19
The Anointing (Holy Spirit) of God is so very powerful that even those who weren’t prophets, prophesied.
God’s love is magnificent towards us! His desire is to fellowship with us yet in every generation, people have turned away and done their own thing not acknowledging the Lord. What else can be done when His creation rejects Him? Yet, He hears our cries for mercy and returns to redeem us.
We are saved by the grace of our Lord Yeshua when we trust Him and live His way and not by dead works such as circumcision. God looks for a circumcised heart, not one’s flesh (Deuteronomy 10:14-16, 30:6; Jeremiah 4:4; Romans 2:25-29; Galatians 5:6; Romans 3:30; Romans 4:9-12; Philippians 3:2-3…).
Meditate & Apply: Holy Spirit, I thank You that You will be in the service today. May we have ears to hear and eyes to see as the Scripture comes alive in our hearts as the Word is taught and preached. You, Lord, are so merciful that when our hearts are toward You, Your mercy comes upon us. May the heart of each of us be circumcised as You desire.
Amen! God's Word is powerful. We are to receive it with open hearts so the Word can do Its job and break up that fallow ground! Praise God for HIs mercy that endures forever! How wonderful it is to be in His presence and experience the power of His glory! May we also feel the earth move under our feet! Amen!
Thank God He never gives up on us! As we follow Him, and listen to His direction we are so blessed! Thank You Lord for Your presence in our services!
