IDOK DEVOTION FOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2009
Well, this afternoon which by the way is Friday (the 9th) I have been expressing myself to ABBA about a certain someone who has been given the Nobel Peace Prize and for what I do not know – must have been his first 12 days in the Oval Office; as a Fox writer opined (my paraphrase): partying, skipping Church and giving away borrowed money so women in other countries could abort their babies. If I had been writing it, I would have said ‘murder their babies’, but be that as it may; you get my drift. I am again not happy with the Washington wanna be Potentate. And as I said I was expressing myself to ABBA about it; better HIM than you, huh? Anyway, after some of that, I decided I better do some Bible reading. My prescribed reading for today is still in the book of Jeremiah.
17 ‘Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.
18 You show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the LORD of hosts.
19 You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.
I think I get it – again. Psalm 37
1 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Okay, so I have heard the news now and have spouted off about it; move on … FEED on the faithfulness of my GOD, not on the carnality of man. I am learning – carnality of man was not my first choice of words. 🙂 Okay, back to my reading now and sweet blessings to you all today (Monday).
Praise Reports and Prayer Requests
ABBA, I am so glad You have all knowledge and all power and that You are in every place. Thank You. And thank You for life and family and friends and ministry. I pray now for our IDOKs, for each of them to have peace of mind, steady hands and sure feet today as they maneuver this day. I pray we will FEED on Your faithfulness to us today rather than anything else we could feed on. I pray we will dwell in the land of today, not fret over yesterday or fear tomorrow. We bring again each situation and each name written here. I pray for pending surgeries and loved ones to have them. I pray for textbook perfect results and for a complete healing of the body. And not just bodies for healing but spirits and souls too. I am mindful of a number of souls that are sick in sin and grief and I pray they too will be healed. And thank You, ABBA, for healthy relationships, what a blessing they are to us, help us do our part to keep them healthy. We pray for our IDOK Troops for their protection and safe keeping and safe returns home. And LORD, whatever we do today, keep us close, don’t let us wander from remembering and recounting to ourselves Your faithfulness. And it is because of Jesus I ask. Amen and amen.
