Isaiah

Isaiah 20: 1~3bck11
I woke up thinking about the Naked Prophet! I knew it was one but had no idea it was Isaiah !
How ready are we to do anything the Lord ask us no matter how foolish or silly it may seem. Isaiah walked around preaching Naked for 3 whole years ,I can only imagine the way he was treated yet he stood strong and did God’s will. Of course I’m not saying God requires that of us now but there are prices we have to pay in order to follow Jesus. He said we must take up our cross daily and we know the cross represents much pain and suffering! So don’t let the situation you’re in now discourage you, it don’t look good or feel good I’m sure! But we must be alert in these evil days so that we are not blind sided by Satan’s tricks because as we know Satan is  a slick and evil old warrior he was with God a long time and he learned a lot,he knows how to make Right look so Wrong! And he knows very well how to make Wrong look so good to us! As Isaiah did, so must we learn from God’s word and listen  to His voice and then we must obey! As hard as it is! We need much discernment today because without it we will follow the wrong guide remember Satan can disguise himself so let’s pray and stay focused!

Luke 9:23 (TLB)

23 Then he said to all, “Anyone who wants to follow me must put aside his own desires and conveniences and carry his cross with him every day and keep close to me!

Hebrews 12:1~3    Reminds us to keep our minds on Jesus and to remember how much He suffered ,yet He never gave up ,God is more than able to bring us through our hard and difficult place’s. I praise and thank God for this wonderful word ,for right now I’m in the midst of depression and I know God is with me and He’s going to bring me out stronger!

Heavenly Father please help us to know your voice and please give us discernment so that we can know right from wrong and Lord please help us to obey you quickly in Jesus name. Amen

If My People

Acts

3 Then Paul said, “I am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, and I was brought up and educated here in Jerusalem under Gamaliel. As his student, I was carefully trained in our Jewish laws and customs. I became very zealous to honor God in everything I did, just like all of you today. 4 And I persecuted the followers of the Way, hounding some to death, arresting both men and women and throwing them in prison.(NLB)

Paul had a good education,top of his class,yet he was wrong when it came to God’s will.He persecuted God’s children hounding some to death 1. Sounds about like the Christians that we see all around the abortion clinics,doing things God’s way is first of all to be done in love,with mercy and compassion.  2. Claiming that all you do and say is right because of the color of your skin,God is not pleased with our wrongs! Yet we “scream” at others who are doing what we think is horrible in God’s sight. 3. Claiming you’re standing up for what’s right while you’re in your circle,but God sees you when you’re tearing people apart with your tongue. You get the picture, there are of course many other things could be added .

6“As I was on the road, approaching Damascus about noon, a very bright light from heaven suddenly shone down around me. 7 I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’8“ ‘Who are You, lord?’ I asked.“And the voice replied, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene,the One you are persecuting.’

We really need to think before we bounce off, believing  what we’re doing is God ordained,I heard that one a lot.God ordained is doing what God wants in the right spirit,in the right time and with the right attitude. Paul not only got knocked from his horse,but he was blind and after this God trained him to do things his way,and he honored God. Are you praying for God’s will to be done  in and through you, we all need to.

Help us Heavenly Father for how often we deceive  ourselves because a lot of time we continue doing wrong and we know it,Father help us to humble ourselves before you and to do your will in the right way,with the right attitude in Jesus name Amen.

Update

Praise God for his help and strength! I’m feeling much better and I do thank you for your prayers,I’m trying to take one day at a time and not worry about the future. For I know who holds my future and I am in great hands. ( Isaiah 55:8) My thought’s are completely  different from your’s,says the Lord.And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.(NLT) I do know that God is with me always and his words are the truth and that gives me great comfort. I also know that all of these things are working for me according to God’s plans.
