“You shall not sow your vineyard with different kinds of seed, lest the yield of the seed which you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard be defiled.”
The LORD shares this instruction throughout the word, DON”T BE UNEQUALLY YOKED! We have to walk in the world, but we don’t have to be like it! Not every person we work with, go to school with or live next to believes and follows the LORD! What we need to do is be an example, be set apart, be holy and be special not ordinary! Don’t fall into the trap everyone else is doing it!
“You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.”
Plowing with a donkey and a ox may get the job done, but with how much difficulty? The fact is it would be a very difficult, it would be more work to get them to work together than accomplishing the actual job at hand! The same goes for us when we try to be unequally yoked or sow different seeds!
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
One of the best ways to not fall into darkness is to NOT go there in the first place don’t be unequally yoked! But when we do stumble and fall know we can call on the LORD and He’ll pull us out.
“As for me, I will call upon God, And the LORD shall save me.”
Today let us pray and stay away from questionable places, so many problems can be avoided when we stay out of darkness and being unequally yoked! Life will always be better when we do things the LORDS way not ours! Have a blessed day in HIM!
“Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.”
Not saying let’s stone anyone! But we really need to remove evil from our lives! Don’t let it enter your house, keep it off your T.V. 📺, laptop 💻 or any other electronic devices you may have! Remove whatever distracts you from the LORD and leads you astray.
“I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me.”
We have enough evil and wicked things going on around us! We really don’t need to be adding to it by bringing it into our lives and homes! Let’s start shutting down the things that get in our way of spending time with the LORD!
Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
1 Chronicles 16:11
Turn off the junk and turn on the LORD! Have a blessed day!
“Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with Him.”
This is a heart we should have let us go anywhere and everywhere the LORD calls us to go even if we die! Because our last breath here is our first breath in the presence of the LORD!
Why did Jesus weep? Many people have many thoughts on this. I think the simplest way to look at this is Lazarus was in heaven and the LORD was going to bring him back to this corrupt world! Are we comfortable in the world or are we looking forward to being with the LORD in His Kingdom?
“Jesus said to her, Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”
When we believe we will see the glory of God we will be filled with His joy, when we look to the world we will weep! Today let us really become more heavenly minded, more kingdom focused and less worldly comfortable! Have a blessed day looking to and for the LORD!
“So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD.”
Deuteronomy 21:9 NKJV
We need to realize just because we don’t personally commit the crime, we do take some responsibility for the moral decline around us! We need to pray!
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
We are called to pray not judge, condemn or ridicule; But pray!
We need to be more concerned with the LORD and what He is doing than the world and what it is doing!
“I, yes I, am the one who comforts you! Why are you afraid of a man, who must die; of a human being, who will wither like grass?”
Today realize we can make a difference when we take praying for our community, state, country and the world as a personal responsibility! Have a blessed day lifting up situations around us to the LORD! Shabbat Shalom.
“But of the cities of these people which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, but you shall utterly destroy them:”
The LORD isn’t being mean, He just knows if the Israelites leave anyone alive they will teach them abominable practices.
The same goes for us today, when we leave things unchecked it can bite us! What distracts you? We need to destroy the things that lead us into abominable practices!
“Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.”
In other words if certain web sites, news feeds, or activities cause you to sin remove them. We need to get rid of the things that cause us to sin! If you know its wrong make it be gone!
“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.”
We all know right from wrong, the LORD instills that in our hearts! When we don’t remove the things that are questionable we start to justify! Today let’s search our hearts and remove the wicked things that maybe in it!
“And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.”
Have a blessed day seeking the LORD and removing the things that need to be removed!
