I am looking forward to seeing you all this morning! Prayer is at 8:30 and the corporate prayer team would love to see you all there!
A gentle answer turns away anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath. Proverbs 15:1 CSB
20 Mercy, specifically the mercy of God shines bright once again in protecting people from accidently killing someone (manslaughter). Thank You Lord that Your Word declares that Your mercies are new every morning and they last throughout eternity!
21 God ordained that the people were to take care of the priests. I don’t believe this is changed in God’s heart and I’m not saying this because we are pastors. I am saying it because though I try to take care of those in authority over me, I surely can find other ways to do so. God makes things simple if we just abide by His rulings!
God’s promises NEVER fail, EVERYTHING He promises gets fulfilled! Israel is such a great example for us to KNOW this with our entire beings.
26 A few of my favorite verses from this chapter:
3 You will keep the mind that is dependent on you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you.
There is always room for a praise to be sung to the Lord for His constant faithfulness!
12 Lord, you will establish peace for us, for you have also done all our work for us.
Our Lord has done all that matters on our behalf because of His great love towards us!
27 The enemy’s days are numbered for the Lord is returning for His people and the devil will be no more to rise up against us.
Israel does produce incredible fruit and flowers which brings much income to them just as it is prophesied in verse 6.
We had an awesome time this morning at "For Such a Time as This" Women's Ministry with Ana! She ministered from the book of Esther and it was awesome! Ladies, make sure you get your applications in for our September Conference as time is short. Please don't be concerned on whether or not KMC will be open as the Lord always has a perfect plan. The Conference will still transpire!
…so also Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Hebrews 9:28 CSB
Joshua must have been able to really take it all in once all the land was divided and he was able to be in his own portion. First a slave in Egypt, 40 years in the wilderness staying in the Presence of God and actually getting to live in the promised land! His staying in the Presence of God and heeding His voice all of those years brought him into the actual promise! Walking with Lord yields His promise to me!
Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you. I will praise your name,
for you have accomplished wonders,
plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
Only You Lord are my stronghold, a refuge and shade. You Lord are the destroyer of death! Who else could do this! No longer will Your people have tears or be disgraced.
