- Tuesday, 1/24/17  Jeremiah 5:25, Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. The statement was true 2700 years ago, and it is true today. Let it go. Confess and forsake it.                For all of you who hate harsh, direct preaching, see what God told Jeremiah his preaching was to be like.  Jeremiah 5:14, Wherefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

- Monday, 1/2/17  Job 36:22b, Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? “Lord, help me to trust the teaching methods that You’re using on me...especially when the class is a hard one and the concepts difficult.”                             Read Ecc 3:1-8. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up... In looking at these 14 pairs of events, sometimes the obvious positive comes first and sometimes the obvious negative is listed first. Or it is obvious? (Read them) Lesson: we don’t know which events in our lives are really positive and which are really negative. Example: Joseph in Genesis; 3 Hebrew children in furnace; Paul’s troubles; John being exiled...to get the Revelation.

- Tuesday, 12/27/16  Do you get the impression that leaders like to be around you? Your bosses? Pastor? Senior staff members? Pro 22:11, He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.                                In need of God’s supernatural help? Ps 31:24, Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord . “Courage” means to be obstinant or resolute. You keep doing and being what you’re told to be and do, and He’ll strengthen you.
