DOES THE LORD HAVE YOUR HEART

God IS ALWAYS CALLING US BACK TO HIM

LIFE AND WINDY ROADS

God is always calling us back to him

Have you ever rebelled against God?  My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.   Jeremiah 3:22 NLT

“When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long. Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and you stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.”   Psalm 32:3-5 NLT

“Create in me a new heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me… Restore to me again the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.”   Psalm 41:10,12

Are you in a tug-of-war with God?  The rebel rejects the expectations, rules, and power of the organization or individual holding authority. Rebellion can be good, if we rebel against injustices or sinful societal pressures.

Rebellion is like a great tug-of-war; the authoritative figure holds one end of the rope while the rebel pulls on the other. This is the trap that satan loves to use on the body of Christ. (John 10:10  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.)  The adversary lays the trap and sometimes we as Christians fall for it.  Hence, we rebel against God’s righteous decrees and precepts!  God pulls on the rope, not to ruin our lives, but to lead us toward safe footing. (Isaiah 48:17  This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.)

 
THOUGHT OF THE DAY:  Psalm 42:8
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life  AMEN

THE DEW OF HEAVEN

Zechariah 8:12
“The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people.

Psalm 78:24
he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.

God Comforts Those Who Are Persecuted

THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH

“Lord, have mercy on me. See how I suffer at the hands of those who hate me. Snatch me back from the jaws of death.

Save me, so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates, so I can rejoice that you have rescued me…

Arise, O Lord! Do not let mere mortals defy you! Let the nations be judged in your presence.
Make them tremble in fear, O Lord. Let them know they are merely human.” 

Psalm 9:13-14, 19-20 NLT
