IDOK Devotion for Wednesday, October 27, 2010
I’m here, I think, this morning with only a few words.
Ephesians 5: 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
DADDY GOD tells us in verse 8 that we, when we have been born again; that is when we who were once darkness but now have become Light, that we are to live (walk) as children of the Light. And then He puts in a parenthetical phrase that we need to come back to but to understand how to walk as children of Light we need to go straight from verse 8 to verse 10.
So how do we walk as children of Light? We make it our business to put forth our very best effort to LEARN WHAT IS PLEASING TO THE LORD.
And how will we know when we are doing that? Verse 9. When we begin to see ourselves think and DO GOODNESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, and TRUTH day to day, and day after day after day after day.
How simple and plain is that?!
DADDY GOD, thank You. Carolyn comes to mind in this very moment and before I ask You another thing, I ask You to minister to her needs in this moment. And every other Carolyn and Janet and Melinda and on and on that is experiencing lack in this moment – fill them up, LORD, with Yourself and they will have no lack. Your Word tells me it’s so and I believe You.
I ask You, HOLY SPIRIT, to minister this Word as You will to every heart who reads it. I pray the simplicity of it will take hold and will bring forth the fruit You desire in us.
And we remember now our IDOK Troops, our Loved Ones, particularly the Lowerys and the Givhans and the Grovensteins; renewing and specifically asking You for a Great Awakening in America, for Peace and Protection for Israel, for the legal election of Constitutional People next week, and for holy boldness and a hunger and thirst for You and Your Word that is unequal to anything thus far in my life. Amen and amen in JESUS NAME.
Holy hugs, kt
