Morning Encouragement for 11/7/2022

Good morning,

each of us has utilized faith whether we know it or not. When we get behind the wheel of a car, we trust and have faith in the brakes because we press the brake pedal we are going 65 miles an hour would press the brake and the car stops; if the car doesn’t stop, we know we have to get the car serviced. If we do not get the brakes fixed, and we have an accident, we are responsible for what happened; of course, we can always say “I have faith they’ll work” but that faith is misplaced. In the same way, we read God’s promises and have faith in them but we don’t do what we are told which leads us to lose faith. The thing about God’s promises is they all come with a mighty word “if”. The word “if” implies that we have to do something or do not do something. Consider the nation Israel when they left Egypt they were told, “after neighbors for gifts of clothing, silver, gold. Those items were used to build the wilderness temple. Consider also Noah how he was told to build an ark because of the coming rain. Had he said to himself, “I have faith that God will see me through” and then did not build the ark or not appropriately he too would’ve suffered the fate of mankind. My encouragement today is that when you’re asked to do something the Lord that you would be faithful to get done without asking “why?”.

Verses: James 2:14 – 26, Ephesians 2:8 – 10, Genesis 7, Isaiah 1:1 – 20.

Famous quote: “there are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things” – D.L. Moody.

Father,

Your promises are full of power and you will honor all of them provided we too are obedient to what is asked of us. If we were told to do tell someone “thus sayeth the Lord” we might do it but if asked to do something uncomfortable we struggle with being faithful and obedient without asking for your reasoning. I have never heard nor read where you have fully disclosed your plans at one time. You tell us what we need to know it. Help me today to do what you ask of me. I pray for my family and the families you have given to me to pray over. I pray that you will continue to shake the world and its elected leaders and workers 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 with 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).
