Good Morning OHA’s. Men’s camp starts today so remember to pray for impacting anointed meetings upon our men!
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 ESV
1 Kings 16
There really isn’t a correlation between how long the evil kings ruled and their length of reign. Ahab was the worst and yet he reigned for 22 years. This is a difficult subject for many when a loved one leaves this earth young over the evil that live long. It always has to settle with trusting God whether we understand or not.
Even Jeremiah had to patiently wait on the Lord to answer him (10 days in this situation). Waiting on the Lord is important and not making a decision until He answers is also important.
Seeing the humongous stones that used to be the temple in Israel is an amazing sight! Most are no more for they were broken down and there is still much rubble but some still remain. Are we not in the “beginning of birth pangs”? No matter what persecution may come, it is the Holy Spirit who must speak through us.
13 And you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
Those who love humans over God won’t make it…
We are instructed to pray the tribulation does not begin in winter. For us in Hawaii, no problem but for those who live in extreme cold, it surely is a problem!
31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
The Word of the Lord is eternal, never, ever ending!
My friends, stay awake and be alert so none are deceived!
Meditate & Apply: Trusting God means trusting Him no matter what I understand or not. Stay patient while waiting on an answer from the Lord. Pray that the tribulation not begin in winter for those who live in cold climates. Help me daily to rely on You Holy Spirit to speak through me. The Word of the Lord is eternal. Keep paying attention to the signs of the times that line up with the Word so I never get deceived.
Prayed for the men! Can't wait to hear the testimonies! Thank you for reminding us about the NON-correlation between the length of years and rebellion to God. I get how the soul might want to make that connection! "Even Jeremiah had to patiently wait on the Lord to answer him (10 days in this situation). Waiting on the Lord is important and not making a decision until He answers is also important." Totally agree! 10 days! was my first reaction! I want an answer like "now!" Microwave mentality? Yes, don't be deceived! I watched an interview where a Christian singer called out the lukewarm churches who were not exalting Christ, but trying to replace Him with music, etc. that tickled the ears and soul. Stick to the Truth!
Great reminders to stay diligent in prayer and patient for answers! Our men are receiving a supernatural download of power today! Thank you Lord for your presence with all of us today as we press into what your will is.
So true...everything leads to and goes back to trusting in the Lord, leaning not into our understanding, for Gods ways are higher than ours...always.
