As I was reading and meditating on Genesis 41 this morning, it occurred to me that God had a plan all along - not only for Jacob, Joseph and the twelve patriarchs - but, also for the world in general. Over and over we read in the Bible how affliction or oppression came upon God's … Continue reading God had a Plan and God Raised up a Man

They did not Cease to Teach or Preach
The apostles were beaten and commanded to not speak in the name of Jesus anymore, so Acts 5:41 Then they departed from the presence of the Sanhedrin, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. 42 Daily, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease to teach and … Continue reading They did not Cease to Teach or Preach
O Children of Jacob, His Chosen Ones
This is from Psalm 105, verse 6 and every time I read the word chosen in the Bible, I get really excited for you see we too are his chosen ones!

Sin is a predator!
This is so true! Notice the verse says :sin crouches at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”
Another verse that goes along with this is
Proverbs 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
We must not open the door to sin! But, if we do, the fix is easy and final!
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
So, stay confessed up – do it daily. Don’t let the enemy drive a wedge between you and the Lord!
God bless you all in Jesus’ mighty name!

Temptation is not sin, nor are the voices of satan in the earth, able to force us to bow to him, or sin, in any way.
Not sure who this is for today, but, you are being sorely tempted. I am praying for you, to not, open the door to sin, for behind this temptation, a devil lurks, wanting to devour you, and your life. He wants you to become his slave – God wants you free to walk in love as His child.
1 Peter 5:8
Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion…
