Many of us are familiar with Isaiah 14
12 How have you fallen from heaven, O light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]
13 And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north.
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol (Hades), to the innermost recesses of the pit (the region of the dead).
I am excited to tell you that I was privileged to find another I WILL passage this morning… And oh the difference!!
A Psalm of David.
1 I WILL sing of mercy and loving-kindness and justice; to You, O Lord, will I sing. A very good choice
2 I will behave myself wisely and give heed to the blameless way–O when will You come to me? I will walk within my house in integrity and with a blameless heart. Wise conduct even when no one is looking – even in the solitude of our own house
3 I will set no base or wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the work of them who turn aside [from the right path]; it shall not grasp hold of me. Choose carefully what we allow into our being through our eyes… Some things just happen in a moment and we have no control over it but truthfully … That is rare. Notice it says I hate the work of them who turn from the right path… Didn’t say I hate them… But the “work” they do. Make the choice to stay on the right path and what happens to them who leave the right path will not get a strong hold on us.
4 A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will know no evil person or thing. When shall a perverse heart depart from me? When I choose to take no evil thing or person to my bosom.
5 Whoso privily slanders his neighbor, him will I cut off [from me]; he who has a haughty look and a proud and arrogant heart I cannot and I will not tolerate. Strong stand here… Puts gossip, arrogance, and pride to flight in less than a heart beat!
6 My eyes shall [look with favor] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks blamelessly, he shall minister to me. Seeking out those for “bosom buddies” who are like-minded
7 He who works deceit shall not dwell in my house; he who tells lies shall not continue in my presence. Invite nothing to come and dwell with us that violates truth… Father’s Truth.
8 Morning after morning I will root up all the wicked in the land, that I may eliminate all the evildoers from the city of the Lord. Faithfully day after day, morning by morning, moment by moment I will make Godly choices… Will I? I better!!
Now let us fail not to balance the above with the below. People who do not KNOW The Shepherd need us to Lead them to HIM.
14 I have given and delivered to them Your word (message) and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world [do not belong to the world], just as I am not of the world.
15 I do not ask that You will take them out of the world, but that You will keep and protect them from the evil one.
16 They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), [just] as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.
18 Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
Will we go?
Father, as always I did not know where we were going this morning when we started this screen; thank You that You always know. And now help me embrace this and WILL to do YOUR WILL moment by moment this day. Help me choose wisely and embrace what You embrace and reject what You reject . . . Sin, but not those committing it. I bring my email family to You this morning and each and every person who will read Your Word, plant it in our hearts and for each need of each I pray we will choose to receive Your provision for that need and thank You that You will watch carefully this day over each and every one of us and that You will not fail us this day or ever… Help us to fail not You this day for Jesus sake.
Some IDOK families are traveling this week and our prayers would be so appreciated.
Father, thank You for this I Will reminder from four years ago – Your Word is fresh today. Thank You for the days of rest we have enjoyed and now as we look to a new work week I pray for our IDOKs, for their places of employment and we ask You to enter those work places with them; help them make a holy difference there. You know those traveling and we ask for Your Grace and Favor upon them, not only for safe travels and a good time but for opportunities to share Your Gospel with souls that do not yet know they can be forgiven. We pray for sick folks that You will touch them with Your Healing Lord Jesus; we have many listed here. And we pray for our IDOK Troops for their protection today, for their thoughts and wills to be set on You today; Lord, keep them safe from all harm and when they have completed their individual missions, please bring them safely home to family and friends. And we ask again this morning for a successful conclusion to this war and we thank You for the progress that has been made and is being made; we thank You for the good work that is being done and we pray that word of the good works will be made known at large. We pray today for the presidential candidates that each will repent and we pray for Your Choice to be elected. And as is our custom Lord we pray for the Peace of Israel, especially this week as they approach Passover, we pray that at least one Soul will embrace Your Peace as Messiah, as their own personal Passover Lamb. Father, I am not privy to all the needs and concerns of these listed here but I know You are and so we join as Your Daughters and Sons together in prayer for these that You will be glorified and these will be made whole in Jesus Name.
