One of the hardest things for mankind is, “honor the vows you have made” (Ecclesiastes 5:5). The reason this is so important to our lives and that of the people we represent, is that by not honoring we become a “liar” just like the Devil; after awhile, lies become a way of life for us and it becomes our main language (John 8:44-46). Now we all have had that one person in our lives that is long on promises and short on follow through sometimes that person is “us”. The problem with this is that people become disillusioned or disenchanted and, after a while, we don’t know what to believe so we trust nothing coming from the liar’s mouth and then we become cynical. If in our churches we do not keep a careful watch over our theological stance people will stop listening to the church as we have found out over the past few decades (Crossroads Church). The Devil uses this opportunity as a platform against the Lord G-d. The Devil whispers in our ear “Your G-d does not care about you look how he didn’t honor ___. If I were made a god of your life, I would ___ right away”; in essence, he would use the same steps that Absolom took when forming a coup against his father David (2 Samuel 15:1-6). I encourage you Good morning, to take a careful look at the foundation of your life to see where some cracks and crevices have cropped up and then seek to fix them.

Famous Quote: “Put your nose into the Bible every day. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian” – Kirk Cameron
Above all else, we are to honor the vows we have made to you and our fellow man even if it hurts. The problem is, that we are passionate people who speak first and think last. Help me to consider the promises I make and honor them to the end of my life. The world accepts lies only when it suits them but you are not like the world. Those who come near to you acknowledge you and walk in paths of righteousness for your namesake. 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 whom 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).
