5/29/20 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time.

God made all things in creation for himself – for His glory and pleasure, and everything in the time which He willed for it to be done. God created us in a certain way so that we will never be completely satisfied with earthly things. He created us with a need for eternal and spiritual things. And until all things are viewed together they will not be perfectly understood, or the beauty of them seen.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end

5/28/20 But I, God, search the heart . . .

Our deceiving hearts try to deceive God, who knows all. Our hearts are inclined towards sin. It is our choice however to decide to follow the path that God would have us to be on or to continue to sin. God knows our hearts though, every compartment and every part of it, and He loves us the same. In deceiving us it can cause us to walk away from our faith. It promises us freedom but ends up binding us with the chains of the enemy. It deceives us to believe that we are righteous and good when we are so far from that. God treats us as things really are rather then as we pretend to be. So if He is chastising us for something – don’t sit around and wonder why. Examine your heart instead. I think to myself, if I was God would I love me with all the junk in my heart and my head? Probably not!!! But God is Love and even with all the junk in there and lies, deceit and evil He still loves us and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him through His Son – the Lord Jesus Christ who left His home in heaven to become the bearer of all our sins!!!!

Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.

5/27/20 . . . to give sight to the blind . . .

How good is our eyesight? Not our physical eyesight but our spiritual eyesight. Can we rightly discern His Word and not only follow it in our lives but share it with others? So many times we think we may be doing something right but it may be something completely against what God would have us to do. Have spiritual eyesight and read His Word. Get to know it well enough and keep it in our hearts and heads and when problems and trials come along we will know which path is the path to righteousness and not stray from it. Do I always do the right thing? Nope but I know enough of what is required of me to hopefully make the right decision and do the right thing.

John 9:39
Then Jesus told him, “I entered this world to render judgment—to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see that they are blind.”

5/26/20 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. . . .

Psalm 107:1-2
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.

Hallelujah, I shout His Name and declare – He has healed my broken body of its diseases and the diseases of my soul! He is my Redeemer and I proclaim it to my world. Ohhh yes!!! Give thanks at all times and for all things. He is good and is the author of all good. His mercy spans through all ages. Let the redeemed say so, those who are delivered from any kind of bondage or disease!! Since Christ is the author of such redemption those who belong to Him are redeemed by the Lord who has delivered them from the hand of the enemy and from sin which wars against the soul. We have much to be thankful for and should proclaim His goodness to all.Precious Abba – blessed Lord!!! I proclaim Your healing and Your deliverance from all the bondages of the enemy! Hallelujah and amen!!!
