“And you shall be holy to Me, for I the LORD am holy, and have separated you from peoples, that you should be Mine.”
The LORD desires us to be holy, separated unto Him. Our problem is we make buildings, projects and yes even ministries holy, what the LORD is after is people, you and me.
“For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”
We all have situations going on around us some are our own faults and some are not. We don’t need to get caught up in desperate projects, desperate drama and desperate situations we need to get caught up in the LORD! Sharing the knowledge of God!
“Then He said to them, As you go throughout the world, proclaim the Good News to all creation.”
Today we need to be doing our part of telling people about the LORD and His good news of salvation! Don’t get caught up in the worldly stuff that will drag you down, but instead get caught up in the LORD who has separated you from the world and calls you His own! Have a blessed day sharing the Good News of salvation with those who don’t know the LORD!
“Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.”
The LORD really wants us to be set apart, special a holy people! He doesn’t want us to be ordinary or like the rest of the unbelieving world!
“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
Realize as you go through your day that the LORD called us out of the darkness of the world and we don’t have to walk in it! We do get to walk in the light of the the LORD, get into His word to know the way He wants us to walk!
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His son cleanses us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7
Today let us walk in the light of the LORD, by being in His word that guides us away from darkness! Remember we are His special holy people, set apart for Him. Have a blessed day!
“Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the LORD your God.”
When we walk in the ways of the LORD, we will always have fewer chances of falling into the ways of the world. The LORD has given us His word to direct our lives, so get into His word!
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”
If you feel things are falling apart around you, a lack of direction or life seems to be a bit foggy. Then get into the word of God for direction and some clarity!
“Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways.” Psalm 128:1
Remember the fear here is a fear of walking through life without the LORD! Through out your day, take time to get into the word of the LORD, spend time with Him! Have a blessed day!
“For on this day, atonement will be made for you to purify you; you will be clean before the LORD from all your sins,”
Leviticus 16:30 CJB
So glad that we are forgiven and cleansed from all our sins! It is good to be reminded that we are sinners in need of a savior, that we are forgiven of the dumb things we do!
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
Today is always a good day to look in the mirror and realize we are the one that needs cleansing from the LORD! We often fall into the trap of pointing out or looking at the sins of those around us, instead of our own!
“Examine me, God, and know my heart; test me, and know my thoughts. See if there is in me any hurtful way, and lead me along the eternal way.”
Psalm 139: 23-24 CJB
So let us not look at others and try to figure out how to forgive their sins, but instead look to the LORD and deal with what’s in your own heart! Realize we need to deal with our own situations! Have a blessed day talking with the LORD about what’s on your heart!
“There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah, His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.” 6. “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the LORD blameless.”
We are told here that Zacharias and Elizabeth walked rightly before the LORD, but were childless at an old age, which was considered a curse at this time. Often times we can feel cursed thinking that maybe the LORD doesn’t like us or care about us! We feel we are doing everything right, walking in His ways but nothing is working out!
“But the angel said to him, Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.”
Before our prayers are answered or come to pass, we often can complain, whine and even argue with the LORD! But when the LORD comes through and prayers are answered we get excited and rejoice in the LORD! Today you maybe going through life’s challenges, impossible situations and are asking LORD where are you? Remember this!
“For with God nothing will be impossible.”
So hold on, keep praying and keep calling on the LORD! He hears, He knows and He will bring it to pass! Have a blessed day calling on the LORD and rejoicing in Him, knowing He is working it all out!
