IDOK DEVOTION FOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2008
Four of twenty five – a Great Recipe:
4- Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants, and eat less foods manufactured in plants.

Have you ever while traveling to church on Sunday morning, glanced out your window to see someone in your neighborhood mowing their lawn? What went through your mind in that moment? Was it there they are mowing their yard on Sunday, they should be going to church? Or maybe you have been walking in the mall and there was a youngster across the isle dressed rather revealingly. What were your first thoughts then? Did you think her attire was shameful and therefore she must be a heathen? Then did you corral your thinking and say to yourself that sounded rather critical? Then did you silently voice a please forgive me ABBA and Lord Jesus help me see people as You see them? Did the Holy Spirit then give you a passage of Scripture? Did He show you on the screen of your mind how The Lord saw/sees people? Did He remind you: Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.
Matthew 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
I Peter 2: 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
What if rather than criticizing our neighbors and the coming up generation, we began to pray. Not first for them but first for ourselves; asking The Holy Spirit to fill us with the compassion of the Lord Jesus so we could see these as sheep with no Shepherd. Sheep without THE SHEPHERD. Then no doubt we would be ready for ‘field duty’.
ABBA, thank You. There is no doubt You are calling us into the fields. What a privilege that is for us. Thank You for calling us. Thank You for this season of equipping that You are doing within us. Thank You for opening our eyes and our hearts to the people. Lord, we need and we ask for Your Compassion and for Your Eyes to see the people and You the Shepherd. ABBA, we have two particular unspoken requests. You know, Lord. You know the strength that is needed in each one. You know what needs to happen and it is for this we ask. And we bring our IDOK names, each listed one by one. And one by one, we see You the GREAT Shepherd seeking and looking and caring for these sheep. Thank You Lord. Amen and amen.
