A review of the resounding revelation brought forth this past week. For those who thought you missed it, you really didn’t. For those who need seconds, here you go! Let the Word of God resonate throughout your being; for we were created from God’s Divinely-loving lips.
Are you full of sap?
“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing, to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” – Psalm 92:12-15
What an amazing promise to possess! Get this vision in your mind, my brother. Secure this deposit in your spirit, my sister. Can you imagine being planted in the house of the Lord, and flourishing in His courts? Let this image marinate for a moment and saturate your soul.
Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger
“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” – James 1:19-20
How are your listening skills these days, my brother? Has your mouth been working overtime lately, my sister? What are you producing, family? Our ears, mouths, and anger can create a huge open door for the devil if we are not careful to keep these areas in check. Satan captures us in a stronghold with our ears, mouths, and our emotions if we allow him.
Give enriching thanks
“Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God.” – 2 Corinthians 9:11
Happy Thanksgiving, family! Greetings from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Who is our Thanksgiving! How thankful are you on today, my brother? How are you acknowledging your enrichment on this anointed occasion, my sister? This is the day the Lord has made, so let us rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24).
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it today, right now, by saying this prayer out loud: “Jesus, forgive me for my sins. I am sorry. I truly desire to be saved and reconciled back to God, my Father, through You. I receive Your sinless Blood as payment in full for my sins—past, present, and future. I now call You my Lord and Savior, and invite You to live within my heart, and to permanently live within me. I make You Lord over me and over my life from this moment on. Amen.” Congratulations! You are now a child of God, made whole and made new, by the Blood of Jesus Christ!
God tells us that we are blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:2). Be a blessing to someone by sending them this word of encouragement. If God did not already put someone in your spirit and on your heart that needs to read this uplifting message from above, simply ask your Heavenly Father who to bless on today. Forward this message right now by email, facebook, or twitter.
Jesus is coming soon!
May God Bless you and keep you always.
