IDOK DEVOTION FOR FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 2008

An Old Farmer’s Advice: Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads. Author Unknown
I think Father had another reason for commanding us to forgive than messing with their heads but it is a ‘catchy’ phrase. We won’t forget it, will we? Neither will our enemies when we do it. Hmmm. We have a pretty smart God, don’t we?
Matthew 5 (KJV): 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
I am so glad The Word of God does not run out. Have you ever been driving along and you realized your windshield is spattered with debris (‘love’ bugs and bird droppings) and when you called for the windshield fluid there was only enough left in the container to make streaks? You know, the kind made in rainbow shape, spaced about every 1/8 of an inch right there in front of your face? Yuck! And by nightfall, it gets pretty hard to see the roadway. So when this happened to me last night as I was coming home from a meeting and when I saw the mess I said, “Daddy God I sure am glad Your Word does not run out like this washer fluid”. And then immediately I thought… IDOK! — Without The Word of God in right portion our lives get even messier than my windshield. Without The Word our lives are harder to maneuver than the roadway through a streaked windshield, especially in those dark times (like the night) when we don’t know what is going on. If we did not have Father’s Word and LOTS of it in our hearts ready to be ‘pumped’ out onto our everyday thoughts and actions — who knows what would happen to us? As you can tell I made it home safe last night and this morning I’ll ‘tank’ up on windshield fluid — both kinds! I don’t mean to be irreverent and Father knows I am not so remember The Word of God today. It’s your ‘windshield fluid’ for LIFE and without a GOOD SUPPLY we don’t see well or drive effectively!
Father, You are so Awesome; You are a delight to me! Thank You. You amaze me with the things You give to me. Thank You. And I pray now for all our IDOKs who are driving this morning that Your Favor will rest upon them and they will have safe passage to work and play and not just in their ‘Honda Pilots’ but in hearts and minds – words and deeds. I pray we glorify You this day. We are mindful this morning and all those whom IDOKs love and we thank You for giving Your Best to these today; thank You for the love You will lavish on them this day, the healing and restoration, the discernment, the wisdom and patience, and kindness and favor and in turn we will give these to others because You have been so good to us. Thank You Father for Jesus sake. We remember our IDOK Troops today for Your Protection in mind and body and spirit; we pray for safe returns for each of them. We pray for the successful conclusion of this war; for the Peace of Israel, for the election of Your choice for President; for the repentance of America and for the reviving of Your Church. And for Your Will to be made plain and embraced for each of these. Maggie and Family. Josh. Donnie S. Smith and family. Barber Grandsons. Renee’. Cathy’s friend and son. Jeremy H.
