“Intense love does not measure it just gives.”
“Let the words from the book of the law be always on your lips. Meditate on them day and night so that you may be careful to live by all that is written in it. If you do, as you make your way through this world, you will prosper and always find success.”
There is no way that God will reject a Good Person.
Job 8:14-21 (MSG)
They hang their life from one thin thread, they hitch their fate to a spider web. One jiggle and the thread breaks, one jab and the web collapses. Or they’re like weeds springing up in the sunshine, invading the garden, Spreading everywhere, overtaking the flowers, getting a foothold even in the rocks. But when the gardener rips them out by the roots, the garden doesn’t miss them one bit. The sooner the godless are gone, the better; then good plants can grow in their place. There’s no way that God will reject a good person, and there is no way he’ll help a bad one. God will let you laugh again; you’ll raise the roof with shouts of joy.
I bless you with honesty, integrity and trustworthiness in everything, may God be your top priority.
When it comes to Life, the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.
Yesterday was our second visit to the Faith Based Unit at Gatesville Correctional Facility. We went thinking we’d be bringing a lesson and encouragement to the 33 ladies incarcerated there. Boy were we wrong! They are the ones who blessed us and knocked our socks off with their joy, freedom in Spirit, praise and testimonies of God’s goodness and mercy. We go every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 8:30 but they don’t want us to leave and neither do we. We have to tear ourselves away before the guards come and take us out. The peace, joy and unity these women share is inspiring and convicting. They will be discipled for 18 months then are released back into the main prison population in pairs as “missionaries”. Please pray for these women as they grow in the knowledge of God and for our team as we minister acceptance, grace and restoration to them.
God is with You wherever You Go
Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
I command you – be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
Add to your faith virtue…
“Add” means there is something we have to do. We are in danger of
forgetting that we cannot do what God does, and that God will not do
what we can do. We cannot save ourselves nor sanctify ourselves, God
does that; but God will not give us good habits, He will not give us
character, He will not make us walk aright. We have to do all that
ourselves, we have to work out the salvation God has worked in. “Add”
means to get into the habit of doing things, and in the initial
stages it is difficult. To take the initiative is to make a
beginning, to instruct yourself in the way you have to go.”
