When you read Jesus’ command, “Go into all the world …”, the disciples are told to share the good news and baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit (Mark 16:15-18). In another area the disciples are told “Sin shall not have dominion over you: you are under grace” (Romans 6:14). So how does one go out to share the gospel and not let sin have dominion? The answer is, “we deal with our heart” by reading about what the pleases the Lord. In this world of the time just as it has always been, temptation is a constant pull at our hearts either through inward struggles or outward pressures. So if everyone sins and falls short of the glory of G-d, why is there a necessity to watch over the gates of our heart and mind? The answer comes down to this, “we are judged by the world for every indescretion and sin complicates our mission as much as it cast spurge on the name by which we minister. It is for these reasons that David so was so careful over everything he did until the moment lapse of wisdom.

Famous Quote: “Walk circumspectly, because you don’t know who will be influenced by your words and actions.” ~ DL Moody
Living for you requires work on our part to accomplish that which you have assigned us to do. The world may not bat an eye at sin unless you have lived by Kingdom standards and then go astray. Please help me today to honor you in all that I do. My prayer is that your precepts and statutes will always be a part of my life. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand who they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land by rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
