I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life. Psalm 119:93 ESV
2 Samuel 15
I extremely dislike Absalom’s behavior and all that it represents. Manipulation is so evil. David is reaping of what he had sown regarding Absalom.
When I read the disaster that comes when people worship idols and live their lives doing evil I know I need to pray even more because their end comes to no good. I know it grieves my Abba when He loves His creation so much and they turn away from Him.
1 Peter 4
We will all face the Judgement Seat of Messiah. Those who walk with the Lord will be found guiltless because of trust in Him for paying the price for our sin at the Cross and His resurrection back to life. Whatever gifting I have from the Lord is not for me but is for serving others. No suffering on this earth compares to what my Lord suffered for my sin. He made me free so I have nothing to complain about! I believe a great shaking is coming upon the church so that a great revival can follow. If the church, the body of Messiah, needs correction, how can revival come first?
Meditate & Apply: Run fast from manipulators. Sow good to reap good. Continue to intercede on behalf of people that choose evil over good and especially over God. The greatest damage to the devil’s works is when a person turns away from a damaging lifestyle to live for the Lord. This is victory in the Kingdom of God! What I deal with in this life is nothing in comparison to the Lord taking upon Himself the sin of all and giving us His righteousness when we Believe in Him with unwavering trust.
Yes, thank you Lord your mercies are new each day and you love Your people so much as to forgive and restore anyone willing. Serving others brings joy unspeakable, it's the most fulfilling thing we can do.
Yes, life and death are in the power of the tongue.
