August 26
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Romans 12:4-5 ESV

 
1 Kings 21 
Jezebel and Ahab were evil.  Naboth was correct and was not supposed to give up his allotted (by God) land.  Jezebel is the epitome of a controlling, manipulating, evil wife.  Ahab chose to humble himself before the Lord and the Lord’s mercy flowed.  God’s mercy is so much greater than my human brain can understand yet I am so very thank for the mercy in my life! 
 
Jeremiah 48 
More historical recordings of what was to happen and did happen in Moab.  Idolatry always brings the end to a nation.  
You can go to https://biblehub.com/encyclopedia/m/moab.htm if you want to read about Moab from Bible Hub Encyclopedia.  There are many other places to read about Moab also.
 
Revelation 2
I cannot lose my first love for the Lord.  In fact my love walk with Him must be on a continuum of increase because every day, I know Him better.  I cannot lose my love walk with others because Lord Yeshua died for all!  Even in tribulation I must keep the love He has placed within me by the Holy Spirit.  God does not change and neither does His Word.  There cannot be sin in the House of God.  Repentance is necessary for it means turning away from sin and turning to our wonderful, loving, forgiving Father.  
 
Meditate & Apply: As I keep my life in order with God’s will for it, all goes well.  God’s mercy for me is so incredible!  When I love God with all my heart, all is well with me!  I have no reason not to love Him this way because He is so very good to me!  Even without all the extras, Him wanting a relationship with me is so wonderful!  Keep loving others for the Lord desires all His Creation to know Him.  Tribulation may come, but it never changes who God IS.  The fullness of God’s Word must be kept and preached.  I must steer clear from sin and repent if I find myself in that ugly place.

Revelation 2

I cannot lose my first love for the Lord. In fact my love walk with Him must be on a continuum of increase because every day, I know Him better. I cannot lose my love walk with others because Lord Yeshua died for all! Even in tribulation I must keep the love He has placed within me by the Holy Spirit. God does not change and neither does His Word. There cannot be sin in the House of God. Repentance is necessary for it means turning away from sin and turning to our wonderful, loving, forgiving Father. = this really stood out to me.

Amen - We cannot lose our first love, we must continue to grow in it. Great reminder, relationship not performance.... Love others continually - keeps our mind off self.

It seems over the years I have gotten so much more relational oriented instead of task oriented that I have become one of those people that used to drive me batty because I don't get near as much done concerning tasks! I always had to be the best and do the best but not anymore! This especially began when I got so very attacked in 2014.
