5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The Living Word

WALK IT OUT

Do you really want to see this country changed for the better? Do you really want godly leadership for our country? Do you really love your brother and sister, and desire leadership that respects all no matter their race, gender, or creed. If so here’s what you need to do…

1. HUMBLE YOUR SELF
2. PRAY
3. SEEK THE FACE OF GOD
4. TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS

Then, watch God move and heal the land!!

In the bible days they wanted a golden calf and sought various leaders to be raised up to lead them (but they all fell short due to their human weaknesses). It is the same today!! Make the best choice, and invite the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to rule in your life and our country on today and always!!!

STAND ON THE WORD

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

1 Samuel 8 (KJV)

6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.

7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.

11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord.

22 And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

It’s Working…

No matter your situation or circumstance don’t give in and don’t give up if you are a child of God!!! Keep the faith knowing that even if it doesn’t feel good to you (in the flesh) it is still working for your good and is good for you (in the spirit)!!! Stop looking at things with your natural eyes and judging, instead walk in the spirit. Change your perspective!! Trials may hurt, but they teach you humility, cause you to be more sympathetic and empathetic to those round about you, and draw you to your knees and ultimately to the feet of our Lord. Don’t get bitter instead allow your cross to make you better. Trust God. Keep the faith. It’s working for your good!!! God can and will do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ever ask or think if you let Him!!!!

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.

1Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

It’s working for my good!! It’s working for your good!!! All for his purpose and glory!!! Trust Him!!!

Something To Think About…

This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for some good purpose, but what I do with this day is important because I have exchanged one day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever, and I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it…
