Morning Encouragement for 11/09/2022

Good morning,

When we read the prophecies about the kingdoms that will collapse, I can understand why the people heckled the prophet because the prophecy was spoken at the height of the kingdom’s glory. Egypt was a formidable empire and kingdoms for miles around catered to it including Israel. Isaiah prophecied about Egypt around 730 BC but the nation would not be defeated by Babylon until around 605 and then the last of the empire was defeated by Rome in 30BC. With the exception of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sodom, and Gomorrah, every other nation was told what lay ahead for them if they did not repent. In the same way that the Lord warned the kings of Israel, He warns us against sin and what our end will be if we don’t repent and turn from our wicked ways. The reason He does this is that He is a merciful G-d. My encouragement for you today is that if there are areas in your life that are not in line with His precepts and laws, you use the opportunity to make things right between you and Him.

Verses:  Isaiah 20:3-6, Isaiah 30:18-22, Joel 2, Psalm 86:1-7, 2 Chronicles 7:1-18

Famous Quote: ”We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our place and bear our cross and thereby rob us of our crown” – William Booth.

Father,

Repentance is not just a “thing” it is everything. When we sin we walk at cross purposes to your will. When we walk in sin we lose out and we will never know what you had in mind for us. The children of Israel lost out on the greatest blessing of their lives and their children became the progenitors of G-d’s eternal blessing. When you look at my life, I pray that you do not see the blotch of sin but that you see a heart open and receptive to your word. I pray for my family  today Lord that you will watch over each and every one of us and guide us in our journey. 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 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).
