your spirit weak today? Feeling run down spiritually? Deuteronomy 11:8, Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments
which I command you this day, that ye may be strong... Obedience brings strength. Go soul winning.
Praise. Give thanks. Help another. You’ll be stronger for it. In Deuteronomy 9:27,
Moses prayed, Remember thy servants,
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the stubbornness of this people, nor
to their wickedness, nor to their sin. The prayer closet is the only place
and time where we should list and speak openly about another’s sins. Quit
spreading garbage around concerning believers who’ve done wrongly. God says He
hates those who spread discord among brethren. Forgive those who hurt you and
move on. If they were in a position of authority and misrepresented God, let
Him deal with them. Many need to forgive someone, and to help others to
forgive...quit taking every opportunity for rehashing and reopening old wounds
and hurts. You’ve grown bitter.
- Wednesday, 3/13/19 Galatians 6:9, And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not. If your goal is getting better in “well doing”, you’ll get
there. If your goal is “perfect doing”, you’ll never get there, and worse,
you’ll be frustrated, and probably quit. Deuteronomy
10:12-13, And now, Israel, what doth the
Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his
ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and
with all thy soul, to keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes,
which I command thee this day for thy good? Simple enough for all to
understand; complex enough to keep all of us humble.

Proverbs 7:11, She is loud and
stubborn. “Loud” just has the general meaning of being noisy. “Stubborn” is
very interesting. It seems to have the connotation of deflecting things back
away from herself. "Refractory" is used in what I looked up.
So...tacit acknowledgment of her guilt, but turning the spotlight quickly back
toward another. Ladies, measure yourself. Fellas, we probably need to do so
9:4, 16, Whoso is simple, let him turn in
hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him... The call
of wisdom and the foolish woman are identical. So, we must look at the fruits.
Lesson: purposefully and intelligently choose your paths. Don’t fall for a
slick sales pitch and glitz and glamour. Look carefully, research, get
references, look at track records. After all, it is YOUR life that is being

Proverbs 8:7, For my mouth shall
speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. Oh, that this
could be said about me far more often and far more truly. Pray for me. “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation
of my heart, be acceptable in THY sight, O Lord.” Do you like what you have in
Christ? In your salvation? Do you thoroughly revel in all the benefits of being
a child of God? LOL...the show hasn’t even started yet! Ephesians 2:7, That in the ages to come he might shew the
exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
This is all just a “warm up act”!! Hallelujah!!

Matthew 9:21, For she said within
herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. This poor, ill,
destitute woman had more sense than the rest of us: the key to getting our
problems truly solved starts and ends with our proximity and obedience to
“Don’t’s” and Two “Do’s” to be blessed. Psalm 1:1-2, Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor
standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night. The formula works if we’ll
work the formula. Do you need to re-evaluate some things?

Samuel 3:21b, ...for the Lord revealed
himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord. He still uses the same
means. If you want to know more about Him, His will, His plan; if you need more
of His wisdom, comfort, security, peace: I would ask you, “How’s your
relationship with the King James Bible and a Gospel preaching church?” John 18:11, Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword
into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
Jesus had as much right not to do His Father’s will, to not drink the cup that
was His destiny, as you and I do. The cup that’s in front of us, no matter how
painful and distasteful, should we not drink it? And should we not do it with a
sweet, humble spirit and a willing heart?
- Monday, 3/18/19 Psalm
42:1, As the hart panteth after the water
brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. We are to look at Bible
character and spiritual leaders as examples and inspirations and challenges to
live more godly. Oh, that I would be able to truthfully recite this verse.
‘Guess I have room to grow... A
reminder of what God demands from a Christian employee: Ephesians 6:5-7, Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the
flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the
will of God from the heart; with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and
not to men...
