IDOK DEVOTION FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2009
Those little interruptions that are like a grain of sand in your tennis shoes can quickly become precious memories – enjoy them early!
I have this song playing in my head this morning and now for you via YouTube.
The Days of Elijah – There’s no god like Jehovah.
A prophecy of His First Coming: This one we have seen with the eyes of faith.
Zechariah 9:9 “ Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.
A prophecy of His Second Coming: This one we see with eyes of faith as well BUT when we mount these horses following Him our faith will have become sight!
Revelation 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
And we say, Even So, Come, LORD JESUS! But until then:
John 4: 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
Now don’t that get your weekend started?!
Praise Reports and Prayer Requests
Roy still has an infection and has been running fever. It has gone into his neck and shoulder, too. He is also nauseous a lot and has gotten dehydrated. Julee took him to MDA in Houston during the night Wednesday. They gave Roy an IV with antibiotic. Julee said the hospital is packed and they don’t even have a real room for him yet and they are in a room in the ER. She said even the parking garages are full and she had to park on top of the 2nd building. Please pray for Roy and Julee
Kathie, Jerry, please pray. My brother Rudon was told yesterday he had cancer and was to see the cancer dr. Thursday, 16th. Mirlean says it is serious and I am asking you to send this to all of your IDOKs. We love you as always, Roye.
ABBA, I am finding it a challenge to go from riding on a cloud to Roy and Julee in a hospital ER and Rudon with cancer. Only You can reconcile these extremes in our emotions. We long to ride those white horses; I long for the day when You will rule this planet in Your Flesh and Bone Body from Your Throne in Jerusalem. I long for the day when Your Peace will be the Rule here; when sin will not praised and strutted in the streets. Oh, I long for those days when the earth will be ‘garden of Eden’ all over the planet but until then, Holy Spirit, please put me to good use in the here and now. My words are still failing me for Roy and Julee and Rudon and all these listed here, but I am picturing You, LORD, being moved with compassion upon them; You, LORD, in hospital rooms with them; You, LORD, in every place they are undergirding and giving strength and yes even in the strangest of times giving laughter. You are so gracious to give us this ministry; thank You. Please again today protect our IDOK Troops; please again today have mercy on America and pour out lavish conviction and grace and space to repent. Please again today give Your Bride a holy desire to be faithful to You; please again today give open doors and anointing to Your Saints carrying the Gospel to people ready to hear and this I ask in the Matchless, Eternal Name of Yeshua. Amen and amen.
