COME, LET’S REASON TOGETHER

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18

O what marvelous love our Heavenly Father has for us. There is no way we could ever justify or defend sin. And only the Blood of Jesus can cleanse and wash away every stain.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Grace is the unmerited and underserved favor of God! When you receive Jesus in your heart as your Saviour, you are given a fresh new start in life. God’s favor and grace, is upon you as though you had never sinned.

Continue your journey, willingly surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and obedient to God, and He will give you the good of the land. (Isaiah 1:19). It is His will for you to prosper and be in health as your soul prospers. (3 John 2).

Give Him the highest praise for all He has done for you. He delights in hearing thanksgiving and praises flowing out of your mouth.

WHERE ARE THE NINE?

And He said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. Luke 17:19

Ten lepers were healed by Jesus one day but only one returned to give thanks. (Luke 17:15). He fell down on his face and worshiped Him..

Jesus asked him where were the other nine. He told the leper that he was made whole because he returned to give thanks.

God is able and willing to help you with all your need. (Philippians 4:19). He wants you to be made completely whole with nothing lacking, nothing missing, and nothing broken. (Matthew 14:36). It is a process, but you can be firmly established and whole.

Lean not to your understanding. (Proverbs 3:5). Ask God to take your life, and do something great with it, and He will. Trust Him.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

Be encouraged this day for the battle is the Lord’s, and it is already won! Hold fast to the joy of the Lord, and the peace of God in your heart, soul, mind and body.

If the devil had known how much the gospel would increase and be spread abroad worldwide, he would not have plotted to kill Jesus. Access was made for every soul to inherit the Kingdom of God (if you so choose), because of his action.

Keep the praises of the Lord on your lips. Put on your dancing shoes! The wells of water and palm trees are in your reach!

Rejoice and again I say rejoice! (Philippians 4.4). You are victorious through the Blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony!  (Revelation 12:11). Praise the Lord!

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is speaking this day! (Revelation 2:7). The best is yet to come!

THE PRODIGAL

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. Luke 15:18

The Prodigal son had asked for his inheritance. His father gave it to him. He spent it on riotous living. Then there was a famine in the land. He was broke and got a job feeding pigs. He was hungry but no one would help him of give him food.

The Prodigal got sick and tired of his circumstances. He became humble and repentant. He returned to his fathers house, willing to just be a servant.

When he was yet a great way off, his father saw him. He ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

In comparison, our Heavenly Father rejoices when one of His children comes home. It may feel like the Lord won’t forgive a sin, but He will. There is an open door for prodigals to return to the Lord.

The Prodigal son had it all… and lost it all… but he finally got his thinking straight. He returned with a servant attitude, and he was restored all!

The Lord forgives, saves, heals, delivers and restores. If there is anything between you and right standing with the Lord, repent as the Prodigal did and watch God work things out for your good. God bless you.

THE CRUMBS ARE PRECIOUS

And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Matthew 25:27

Jesus had gone into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. A woman of Canaan came to request Jesus to pray for her daughter who had a devil. The disciples wanted Him to send her way. He said He had only come for the lost sheep of Israel.

She worshipped Him and was persistent. She asked again for His help. He said it wasn’t meet to give the bread to the dogs. She reminded Him that even the dogs eat the crumbs off the table.

Jesus told her she had great faith and He granted her request. Her daughter was healed from that moment. The woman got what she was seeking and asking.

Jesus knows your thoughts, desires and needs. He said to ask and it shall be given to you. (Mark 7:7). Take it!

The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity. Psalm 94:11. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Psalm 139:4.

God wants you to talk and communicate with him. He also wants to talk to you. He knows what you want, but He still wants you to ask.

Come to the Lord as you are! Receive Him in your heart and your life. Make sure your destiny is sealed! Enjoy the daily benefits of the Lord today, (Psalm 68:19), and eternal life forevermore. God bless you.

A SPIRITUAL ROADMAP

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12.

When you ask God to show you what is in your heart, and sincerely desire to know, He will. The Word of God will be like a spiritual roadmap or a personal tour guide to lead and guide you as you study and pray. (2 Timothy 2:15)

The Word of God penetrates deep inside to assess and validate what’s in the heart! It will discern whether thoughts, motives and intentions are good or bad.

A Word from God directly to you by the Holy Spirit reveals to your spirit things you need to know. God speaks directions throughout the Word, so you can live in victory lane.

Look at your spiritual roadmap (The Word) often. Follow the route closely as the Holy Spirit leads so that you will always be on track.

Meditate on the Word and overcome doubt and unbelief. Totally trust God so you can enter into the rest.

As you honor the guidance of God, He releases His favor. Just one day of the favor of God can be more productive than a lifetime of labor! God bless you.

WAIT ON GOD FOR DIRECTION

Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Psalm 25:3

You may feel desperate and think you need direction, clarity or for God to move on your behalf right now. Always remember however, that God is not desperate. Have confidence that He will come to your aid.

For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Hebrews 10:37

Don’t let anyone pressure you into making a decision when you have not heard from the Lord for yourself. You will have peace when you know you have heard from God. In due time God will give you clear direction. Don’t grow weary or give up while you wait. (Galatians 6:9)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.  Isaiah 40.31

God knows you better than anyone. He is preparing you to accomplish His purpose. Be content knowing that He knows best when to give you the direction you need.

In the process of waiting God desires to draw you close to himself. He is working in your heart. He wants you to be able to make wise decisions. Hold fast to your peace during your wait. (Isaiah 28:3)

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:15

Use your God given gifts and talents ‘wherever’ you are. God opens doors which no man can shut. (Revelation 3:8). He also closes doors which no man can open. 

Trust God and do good as you wait. He is working all things out for your good. (Romans 8:29). Enjoy a good God blessed day!
