Morning Encouragement for 11/20/2022

Good morning,

When you think about Elijah and Moses, you get the idea that these men were lightening rods for the Lord and they were. Moses led a nation cross country, through the Reed Sea, and to Mount Horeb. Moses was the only known man that saw the G-d’s face and lived to tell about it. The nation Israel was constantly griping about everything and everyone. The problem was that when he was given instructions for bringing water from a rock, he told the people “Must we bring forth water from this rock?” he dishonored G-d and in a way glorified himself before the people. Elijah called for a drought and it happened and then called for rain it too happened. During the drought, Elijah carred for by the Ravens near a pond. The events at Zarephath, the contest on the mountain, and the rain after the drought all spoke about G-d’s provision for the prophet no matter what the conditions were. The problem was, one word from the vile woman Jezebel and Elijah ran for his life. Elijah’s ministry would come to an end prematurely. One would think that these two clowns would be on Jesus’ “no contact list” but, the point where they fell on their sword would be the encouragement Jesus would need to face the cross. Today many of you have fallen on your sword and may feel that you are useless to the Kingdom but I tell you that you may very well be the word of encouragement somebody maybe looking for that well propel them over a hurdle to reach lives for Jesus Christ. My encouragement for you today is, no matter where you are even if you have fallen on your sword, never give up nor cave into the fears that are shaking you.

Verse: 1 Kings 17, 1 Kings 19, Numbers 20, Matthew 17:1-13

Famous Quote: “No matter what has happened to you in the past or what is going on in your life right now, it has no power to keep you from having an amazingly good future if you will walk by faith in G-d. G-d loves you! He wants you to live with victory over sin so you can possess His promisesfor your life today!” – Joyce Meyer


No one can steal us from your hands but we, through our autonomy can jump out. Elijah and Moses were your two chosen servants or “candles of the Lord”. These men faced enumerable issues in life and while it was sad to see them stumble over a hurdle, it is not uncommon because we face the same issues today. My prayer is that I will continue to be a voice of encouragement for those who are struggling so that they do not trip over the hurdle. Please watch over our ministers in the field and those on mission trips across the nation. Thank you for these precious people Lord who have given their lives in service to you – May you keep them as the Apple of your Eye. 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).
