1 John 3:1 (NASB) “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” Jonas Bohlin
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Please know that when people spew hatred and vitriol into the atmosphere, they are sowing bad seed and corruption into the spiritual environment. And, I tell you the truth that the harvest is in full swing. You wonder why things feel so bleak; this is the reason. Begin to sow seeds of peace for your future well-being, says the Lord.
Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same.
Watch for the storehouses and floodgates of Heaven to open over you. Doug Addison
December 4, 2018. This is a somber time, but at the same time a joyful time. How can that be? Somber because of how one will be missed, but also joyful because of one who has gone on to receive a great reward and to be with loved ones who have gone earlier. The honored one is an example of how to be a servant leader, full of humility, wisdom and honor. Pattern your life after Me, but also honor those who honor Me.
1 Samuel 2:30 (ESV) “Therefore the LORD, the God of Israel, declares: ‘I promised that your house and the house of your father should go in and out before Me forever,’ but now the LORD declares: ‘Far be it from Me, for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.” Bev Robinson
December 4, 2018. Simple maneuvers are what I would reveal if you would just humble yourself before Me and surrender your self-centered pride. Diffusing simple and complex situations with individuals and groups does not have to be as complex as you or others make them out to be. If you will listen and be attentive to My voice, then and only then will I untangle the multifaceted mess preventing peace. See it as snuffing out smoldering embers that can destroy.
2 Timothy 2:24-25 (NOG) “A servant of the Lord must not quarrel. Instead, he must be kind to everyone. He must be a good teacher. He must be willing to suffer wrong. He must be gentle in correcting those who oppose the Good News. Maybe God will allow them to change the way they think and act and lead them to know the truth.” Kevin Robinson
December 4, 2018. You wondered about your status with Me. You wondered if I really do love you and care for you. My love for you is as a Father who loves His children and desires more than anything else to first, live in a relationship of reciprocated love and adoration. Secondly, a loving Father who spends time and energy discovering what makes His children happy and then with everything within Him, bring that to pass. I am that Father!
