June 5

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:11 CSB

Joshua 23-24

23 It is the Lord God Almighty who fights for me and always wins.  It takes the strength the Lord gives us by His grace to stand against deception and falling for the tactics of the enemy.  This strength comes from me walking with the Lord in all His with ways, loyal, faithful and loving Him. 

14 “…you know with all your heart and all your soul that none of the good promises the Lord your God made to you has failed. Everything was fulfilled for you; not one promise has failed.

16 If you break the covenant of the Lord your God, which he commanded you, and go and serve other gods, and bow in worship to them, the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and you will quickly disappear from this good land he has given you.”

24 I am not to ever “live in the past” but I am to remember ALL the Lord has done for me, past, present and future. 

15 But if it doesn’t please you to worship the Lord, choose for yourselves today: Which will you worship—the gods your fathers worshiped beyond the Euphrates River or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living? As for me and my family, we will worship the Lord.”

Isaiah 29

Again, prophecy being fulfilled in that the Jews are being called back to Israel and this certainly will turn the people to receive their Messiah as is happening, until all Israel is saved (Romans 11:26)!

Walking with the Lord eliminates confusion thus gives understanding make it easy to follow His commands.

Luke 7

Lord, I do desire great faith that will never allow any room for doubt.  There is no reason not to have this great faith for You are FAITHFUL & TRUE in all things!  Compassion is a wonderful attribute that our God has towards us.  This woman didn’t even ask for the raising of her son yet the Lord’s compassion on her conquered death!  I am to have this compassion in my life so those who need healing can receive.  Faith brings salvation to those who have it and live it. 

Meditation & Application: Truly walking with my God brings me everything I need to live His way.  It is easy to be in love with God as I remember daily what He has, is and will do on my behalf, forgetting none of His benefits!  As for me AND MY FAMILY, we will and do worship the Lord!  I seek great faith Father, so enable me, my Father each day to have this that I seek.
