No King

Scripture
Read the full text of scripture to get the full context of what’s really happening here.

——————————————–
My take away of today’s scripture:
Even though God was their King, every man acted as his own master, as if there was no king. Blessed be God for sovereignty.

Reminds me of what a great deal of the people today is like. They want to be their own kings. It is such a sad and needless tragedy of events.

God is still on the throne and in charge. He uses everything for His good will. We may not know or understand. It doesn’t matter. We don’t need to. God has it all worked out. Why do I say that? What do you say?

How does this apply to us today? How do we apply this to our lives today? Here are my thoughts:

  • We need to learn to trust God in all things.
  • We need to obey God in all things.
  • God has our backs.
  • We need to commune with God, daily; hourly.
  • Rejoice in Him always. Be happy. It’s a choice, ya know!
  • Mostly, we need to be in His word daily, praying earnestly, and being in fellowship with our Christian/church family.
  • We need to lift each other up; not tear each other down.

Dear Abba Yah, thank You. You are the almighty, the alpha and omega. There is none other like You. You are our creator and our great physician. I pray for the spiritually ill lifting them up to You. I ask for You to reach into their souls, hearts, and minds to cajole them to You. I pray that each one reading this blog will be blessed by You and reach out to You. Thank You, in advance, for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Divine Birth Announcement

Scripture

Samson’s birth announcement to his parents. What a shock it must’ve been to them! Manoah’s wife was barren of conceiving a child. God would use Samson to rescue Israel from the Philistines. The Lord blessed him as he grew up. Then, the Spirit of the Lord stirred him.

I find it quite fascinating how God uses barren women to bring about such miraculous things. What does that say of who and what God is?

What does this scripture say to you? What is God teaching in this scripture? I believe God uses everything to serve His purpose and plans. So, how does this apply to us today? How can we apply this lesson to our lives today? Here are my thoughts:

  • We can be encouraged to continue our hope in God’s mercy.
  • Husbands and wives should tell each other their experiences of fellowship with God, and their growth in understanding with Him, because they may help each other in the way that’s holy. As well, as children with their parents in this case. It could help everyone all around. The innocence of a child and how God uses them is amazing.
  • Where God gives His blessing, He gives His Spirit to qualify for the blessing. Those are blessed indeed who the Spirit of grace begins to work in them during their childhood.
  • Hang in there! Don’t give up!

Dear Abba Yahweh, I lift up the readers of this blog to You. I ask that they seek You and know You. I pray that they allow You to work in them for Your good and holy grace and for Your purpose in all of our lives. I pray for their needs to be met and that they live fully for You. Thank You for allowing this blog to be a blessing to those You bless from it. Thank You in advance for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.

City Officials

Scripture

It seems that those instructions in today’s scripture are still happening except, many of the judges and officers are corrupt! It’s a hot mess! When God is taken out of the public corruption is bound to take place. We need to get God back into all the places He’s been taken out of.

How; you wonder? Well, I believe we need to stand up for God, not back down. We need to stand firm on God’s word. We must stop allowing ourselves to be bullied by the corrupt people who push us around. We need to be in God’s word to gain a foothold. We need to be in communion with God, every day. Not when it suits us.

Dear Adonai, Abba Yah, I pray for Your children to stand firm in You. I pray that we stop allowing bullies to push us around and that we can put You back into the public where you’ve been removed. Show us what to do, Yah. I pray all this in Jesus’ holy precious name, amen.

Do What Pleases God!

Scripture:

What exactly does be careful mean? The dictionary says this:
making sure of avoiding potential danger, mishap, or harm; cautious. And this:
done with or showing thought and attention.

Then there’s the part about obeying. It’s important that we submit to God’s authority. Going against Him leads to danger and mishaps in our lives. Which we see in the definition of careful; we want to avoid potential danger or mishaps. The whole thing is a “no duh” to me. I don’t know about others. What do you think this scripture means about being careful and obeying God?

In the last part of the verse, it informs us that we would be pleasing God when we do what is good and right.

I rather like to please God. Don’t you? It would make things in life move along better.

To be pleasing to God I must be in His word. I must apply His word to my life. I must work at being righteous and be like Christ. What would you do?

Dear Father God, make it known, without question, what I need to be doing to please You. I also pray the readers of this blog to be blessed and to be pleasing to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
