September 20
“Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before.  Joel 2:23 ESV
1 Chronicles 3 

David’s genealogy is significant as the Lord promised him to always have a descendant on the throne.  The Genealogy continues in the New Testament pointing to our Lord Yeshua who will ALWAYS be King of Kings and Lord of Lords and will reign from Jerusalem.
Ezekiel 16
We are the bride of Messiah.  Though this chapter is speaking of Israel it holds true to all who have rejected our God which at one time or another was all of us.  It makes my heart sad to how I hurt my God before fully committing my life to Him.  I am so grateful for Your love and mercy toward me oh Lord.  I could never fully repay and You don’t want me to repay.  You just want a continuous relationship with me and never put anything before You, Oh Lord, my Messiah, my God, my Lord, my King, my Redeemer, my Deliverer,
my Healer, my Forgiver of all, my Husband.  
62 "I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall know that I am the Lord, 63 that you may remember and be confounded, and never open your mouth again because of your shame, when I atone for you for all that you have done, declares the Lord God.”
Romans 5
The peace I receive from the Lord is not like the so called peace of this world but it is the very peace of God as I receive all of Him by faith (John 14:27).  Thank You Lord that You reconciled me to the Father for eternity!  I don’t want to quote this entire chapter but it is so powerful it is difficult not too!  I will spare you!  Bottom line is though Adam’s sin brought sin to all of the world, the no sin of my Lord Yeshua wiped it all away!
Meditate & Apply: The Lord put up with a number of evil kings to keep His promise to David, yet when Yeshua came to deliver us, the promise was fulfilled and will show itself in completeness upon His return.  Every promise God makes to me, He fulfills.  My part is to not concern myself with His timing but to just stay in faith (trust).  He has wiped all sin out of my life by going to the Cross on my behalf and has forgotten it “as far the east is from the west” and “remembers it no more”, so I don’t even have to speak of it!  Wow, such freedom!  The world offers no real peace but my Lord does and faith (complete trust) in Him produces it!  Wow!  My sin was wiped away at the Cross of Yeshua Messiah!
