Morning Encouragement for 11/3/2022


Good morning,

I observed something the other day that I want to share with you. I was pouring some ketchup from a bottle, when it was full, I would put extra on but as the bottle emptied out, I used it sparingly. This observation brings to light how we treat our basic rights. When our rights are not threatened, we give them scant attention however, when there is a possibility that those rights will be taken away, we treasure them and protest when anyone tries to take them away. Consider the nation Israel and how they were overjoyed with leaving Egypt and “slavery”.  Yet, when the trouble began to brew and the people grew dissatisfied they wanted to go back to that pleasant Valley of Egypt. Throughout the years in Canaan, the people one from one enslavement to another always went back to idol worship despite what the prophets told them. Today we are not the much better nation Israel because no matter how many times we have been warned by famine drought dwindling resources etc. we do not listen. There will come a time when everything we treasure is taken away and given something we really don’t want. My encouragement is, to make use of and hold on dearly to your Christian rights and responsibilities.

Verse: Revelations 3:2-6, Exodus 19:1-6, Psalms 125, Proverbs 18:5-12

Famous Quote: “The constitutional freedom of religion is the most inalienable and sacred of all human rights” – Thomas Jefferson.


Your son died on a piece of wood 2000 years ago so that we might be free from the oppression of sin. What we do with that gift will greatly determine how we live. Having this gift presented before us means we have a choice, “live for the lord” or “live in oppression”. Help me today to live for you in all that I do. Please help me today to cherish the freedom you have given by walking in it and exercising them. 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).
