06-17-18 Loved One’s Devotion OH, HOW WE NEED TO HEAR FROM THE LORD…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “…there was a man named Cornelius…He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. One day…he had a vision. He saw an angel of God, WHO SAID, “Cornelius!” “What is it, Lord?” he asked. The angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. He is staying with Simon the tanner; whose house is by the sea.” (Acts 10:1-6)

The Lord [the same Lord we are serving today] is speaking to a gentile, giving him the address of where he will find Peter. Now Peter went up to the roof where he was staying, and the Lord gave him a vision about gentiles not being unclean and illegal to associate with…

“While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius stopped at the gate. They called out, asking for Peter…THE SPIRIT SAID TO HIM, “Simon, three men are looking for you.(Acts 10:17-19)

Peter left with these men to go to the home of Cornelius, knowing that it was illegal to enter the home of a gentile. Peter found a home full of people who had found Jesus, he preached to them and they were sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit, then baptized in water.

PLEASE LORD TEACH US ONCE AGAIN TO HEAR FROM YOU

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:]“Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and HE WILL SAY: Here am I….” !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

06-16-18 Loved One’s Devotion OPEN MY EYES LORD…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  “Be good to your servant while I live, that I MAY OBEY YOUR WORD. OPEN MY EYES, that I MAY BEHOLD WONDERFUL THINGS from Your 1law.” (Psa. 119:17-18) 1Torah: instruction or teaching

David knew personally that the instruction and teachings of the Lord held great treasures. Much of the 119th Psalm acknowledged these wonders that were so precious to David, he declared, I have HIDDEN YOUR WORD IN MY HEART that I might not sin against you.” (Psa. 119:11)

I was inspired to start ministering by these devotions about 11 years ago because the Lord showed me that the Word of God is indeed wonderful, deep, instructing, powerful, life changing, needed every day and unfortunately THE DEVIL SEES TO IT THAT WE IGNORE IT. Listen to what is said about The Word:

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS FLAWLESS…” (Pro. 30:5) “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and OBEY IT.” (Luke 11:28) Take the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” (Eph. 6:17) “For the WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND POWERFUL and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a 1discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Heb. 4:12) 1kritikos: able to judge. I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True [Jesus]. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is THE WORD OF GOD.” (Rev. 19:11-13)

LET US LIVE THE WORD BECAUSE WE LOVE THE WORD

06-15-18 Loved One’s Devotion BEWARE; THE DEVIL WILL ALWAYS SEEK TO DEVOUR US…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  “As Solomon grew old, HIS WIVES TURNED HIS HEART AFTER OTHER GODS, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been…The LORD became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice.” (1 Kings 11:4, 9)

The Lord God always expects us to be obedient and loyal to Him. No matter how much good Solomon did, in the end he yielded to the devil and turned away from God. Because of Solomon’s disobedience God punished the people of God because they turned away as well.

“I will do this because they have forsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Molek the god of the Ammonites, and HAVE NOT WALKED IN OBEDIENCE TO ME, nor done what is right in my eyes, nor kept my decrees and laws as David, Solomon’s father, did.” (1 Kings 11:33)

We must beware because the devil is continuously trying to destroy us by tempting us to disobey God. We must love the Lord with all our heart, soul mind and strength…

ALL TO YOU LORD I SURRENDER, I SURRENDER MY ALL TO YOU

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “…Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion…”That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

06-14-18 Loved One’s Devotion SATAN PRETENDS TO BE AN ANGEL OF LIGHT…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced 1sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” They followed him because HE HAD AMAZED THEM FOR A LONG TIME WITH HIS SORCERY.” (Acts 8:9-11) 1mageia: magic, magic arts

This deceiver was practicing magic, amazing people and exalting himself as one using God’s great power. Philip comes to town with the real power of God, many get saved, supposedly Simon but did he really turn himself over to God? Well, Peter and John came to town to teach about the Holy Spirit…

“Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, HE OFFERED THEM MONEY and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 8:17-19)

Peter said: “…your money will be destroyed with you!” You can’t buy God’s gift with money?” All of God’s gifts are freely given by faith distributed by God to whom He chooses, for His glory…

MAKE US WILLING VESSELS TO BE USED OF YOU LORD…

06-13-18 Loved One’s Devotion BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY TO GOD…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “…you are a mere man. SO, WHO ARE YOU TO TALK BACK TO GOD? Scripture says, “Can what is made say to the one who made it, Why did you make me like this?'” Isn’t the potter free to make different kinds of pots out of the same lump of clay? Some are for special purposes. Others are for ordinary use.” (Rom. 9:20-21)

Imagine, there was a time before creation when it was the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; everything was perfect, then God created man out of what He had, He formed man with perfect working parts and breathed into him the breath of life and man became a living soul. So, whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corin. 10:31) He made us to worship and be obedient to Him…

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?” FOR FROM HIM AND THROUGH HIM AND FOR HIM ARE ALL THINGS. TO HIM BE THE GLORY FOREVER! AMEN.” (Rom. 11:33-36)

WE ARE FROM GOD AND WE ARE CREATED FOR GOD
