May 12

Happy Birthday Beanie (and all others born today)!

Who can find a wife of noble character? She is far more precious than jewels. She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her:  Proverbs 31:10, 27-28 CSB

Deuteronomy 29

Our Lord makes it so easy throughout His Word.  Obey, and blessing piles on.  Disobey and live with much difficulty. 

14 I am making this covenant and this oath not only with you, 15 but also with those who are standing here with us today in the presence of the Lord our God and with those who are not here today.

Jesus said, “Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”  John 20:29

All idolatry is turning away from the Lord.  Sin doesn’t just affect people, it affects land, animals and all the way to nations.  Idolatry leads to every curse upon the idolater and those who follow. 

29 The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law.

Isaiah 1

Here is an example of the curse that fell upon Israel.  All that God says comes to pass and we get to pick and choose what the outcome will be.  Choose who you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord and Him only!  Our Lord is never interested in useless works.  If there is no justice, there is no God in it.  With Him justice flows because He is JUST always!  

2 Timothy 4

I must continue in the preaching of the Word, always be ready and rebuke, correct and encourage others with great patience and teaching.  Today is the day that many have turned from hearing the truth, But God!  He is bringing revival to those who want to love Him and long to really know Him.  Ministry is made up of self-control, enduring hardship, living the great commission and fulfilling the calls on our life as the Spirit leads.  There will always be betrayers but God will always send more faithful workers. 

29 The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law.

Meditation: Blessing flows as I stay in love with my God, desiring His way of living and doing so.  Why would anyone want to choose cursing over blessing?  Everything that comes from God is Just.  Justice is of great importance to Him and that’s why with Messiah Yeshua’s return, it will be restored.  Don’t fret over betrayers but instead rejoice in those the Lord sends with His blessing!

Application: Never give up no matter how difficult it may seem at times.  Be just because God is just.  Stay away from evil at all costs. As I live for the Lord, I can expect blessing in my life.
