Morning Encouragement for 8/31/2022

Good morning,
Many of you have had people call or show up unexpectedly to tell you all about their problems down to the minute details. Usually, those calls or drop-by visits entail some need like money, a ride, and/or an ear to listen and to commiserate with. Once the individual(s) have left with their needs met, you may not hear from them again until they need something else; there is a name for people like this, “User”. In the same way, when we go to church and altar calls only when our life is out of whack like a job loss or, marital issues, we are being users of the Kingdom. As users of the Kingdom, we never go beyond the “infant stage” this is why some people are blessed more than others, have more joy than others, and have the power of the Lord operating in their lives. The Lord’s desire for our lives is that we will walk in obedience, adhere to his statutes, and cling to His testimonies so that, when the Lord enlarges our heart, we will cling to Him.
Readings: Psalms 119:25-32, John 10:7-19, Romans 12, Proverbs 4:20-27, Deuteronomy 18:9-14.
Famous Quote: All growth that is not toward G-d, is growing in decay – George McDonald
Above all else, you desire that your children remain free. This world is all about “control” and people who come to you only to have their “headaches” removed but live like the world miss out on your greatest gift “Jesus’ sacrifice that paid the penalty for our sins”. Our world is in upheaval as nations and cultures throw off the old shackles. and the USA is no different. I pray for this nation, my city, and my state. I covet the prayers of the saints in praying for revival across the globe.
I pray that you will continue to shake the world and its elected leaders so that they may be silenced before you. 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).
