Morning Encouragement for 8/6/2022

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!

This summer has been a season of transformation for me as I had an epiphany of sorts. For the past number of years I have complained about the weather especially when it got so cold as it does in Minnesota. Then it stopped raining and land dried out and it got very hot. After looking over the landscape, the news, and all of the violence, my turned to praise G-d. I asked for his healing hand upon this great nation. The more I thanked and praised him, the more the burden was lifted as He started a lengthy process of healing this nation. The thing is, the more I thanked G-d and worshipped him the more the Devil turned up the heat. Healing, as you may know, is not a “one and done” event, it is contingent on obedience and faithfulness. When we refuse to listen to the negative information and it allow it to affect our attitude, but in everything with prayer and thanksgiving present our prayers to the Lord, there is nothing that is impossible. I encourage you today to take a hard look at your attitude and if it is focused on “the attitude of the world”, turn 180 degrees around and turn yours eyes to the Lord. Having our eyes on the Lord doesn’t make the troubling situations go mysteriously into the night, it means we must put on our working clothes and at the Master’s direction move forward. Is this easy? No! But, “nothing is impossible when our hand is coupled with the Master’s”. I want you all to know that I love you with the love of the Lord and I pray for you. I coven your prayers for the nation from the North to the South, the East to the West, shore to shore across all ethnic boundaries. My prayer for you today is that you will turn from whatever situation that is facing you and pray for healing across the landscape. Keep the Faith my dear warriors in Christ Jesus

Readings: James 1:1-18, Luke 18:1-8, Habakkuk 3, Psalm 71, Proverbs 24:30-34.

Famous Quote: The true believer can no more live without prayer, than without food day by day. – George Whitfield

Father,

Without a doubt our connection to you is not just a “thing” it is everything. Our scientists and arm-chair prophets can come up with ideas and present them as a working solution until the plan is put in place and it falls apart in practice. You made this world Lord just as you made mankind. Because you made it, you know what it will take to heal it and us. In the same way when we watch the news, we hear of catastrophes, violence, and the effects of flooding and drought. These events can either tear us apart or galvanize us to hold on even tighter to your hand. Lord we need your help today more than ever. There is flooding and destruction in Kentucky, dried out lakes in the west, and fires destroying land. Yet, no matter I will continue to praise you and seek your healing power shore to shore, in four directions. I say to the enemy “Let my people go”. I pray for my nation Lord because I live here and my family and extended families live here. I pray for military forces across the globe, our Police, EMTS, and medical staff. Be with our missionaries and those in the service industry. Thank you for all that you do and for the victory in front of us
