Ministry of Recovery

Father, it seems to me that it is going to take a whole lot of Holy Spirit ministry to get Your Children back to in-touch ministry, to each other and the Lost People of the world. The Evil One has frightened the whole world into cowering isolation. People are afraid of human touch, afraid to be good Samaritans; perhaps even afraid of You. Not all of us, but more than not it would seem. 
Please, Holy Spirit, advance a ministry of recovery on us. Teach us and encourage us to face the roaring lion in whatever grab of disguise he is wearing and to be not afraid of him anymore.
Help us stand him down in JESUS name and send him slinking for cover.
Abba, I love this Country. I thank You that You saw fit to birth me and re-birth me in this Country right here. I am grateful and I thank You that through all the darkness and sin You have had a remnant of people who have loved You and have tried to learn Your Ways and live to obey You here in America.
And it is because of You in these people that America is still here today. I don’t see what You see but with my limited abilities, I see an uprising of evil in people. I see people deceived and racing down the broad road of destruction; destroying their lives and trying to destroy America too and in the end, damning their own eternal souls to hell. Billions of people in this world are running headlong to hell and I am unable to stop them.
And honestly, it seems to me, Papa, that few of us who say we are Yours actually care if they go to hell. It’s almost as if we have become so cold-hearted that we by our lives are saying ‘I have my fire insurance and if you don’t have yours too bad for you, I have no time to be concerned about you.‘ 
Please forgive me, forgive us. I hate the evil and corruption that seems to have the upper hand. I hate what has happened and what is reported on just about every digital screen in this world. It would be overwhelming if that is all I could see. I have seen some glimpses of what I believe is You working. I want to see more. Please open me to see You and more of what You are doing to save people and America. Please, Holy Spirit, come and save Your people and the Lost. Hillary thought she was set to advance the plan to destroy America but President Trump interrupted that plan and now the world would have us believe that Biden gets to pick up where that Administration left off and usher in the death of America. I pray You will yet overturn this in JESUS’ name. 

Day 19

Day 19 of The Giving of Thanks

Lots and lots of books and for the authors who write them and for times and days to read them. For shelves to hold them and for LOVE who built those shelves. For notes taken on the pages of a few, and for underlinings in yellow, blue, green, or pink and completion dates logged at the end. The gift of reading. Let us not take it for granted.

Revelation 20:12 (NLT) 12 I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.   source

Daniel 7:10  (AMP) 10 “A river of fire was flowing And coming out from before Him; A thousand thousands were attending Him, And ten thousand times ten thousand were standing before Him; The court was seated, And the books were opened.source

Acts 28:23  (AMP) 23 When they had set a day for Paul, they came to his lodging in large numbers. And he carefully explained [Christianity] to them from morning until evening, solemnly testifying about the kingdom of God and trying to persuade them concerning Jesus, both from the Law of Moses and from the [writings of the] Prophets. source
