As I read the division of the land today it occured to me just how precise God is.His plans for Israel are so clear and detailed...Yet due to their disobedience,they wandered for years without their land,today they are still fighting for it.God's plans for our life are good....but we need to frequently tune into His frequency(I like that phrase)and be obedient.
Like Israel we are warned not to mix and take on the ways of this strange land (the world)or bow down to idols...Losing their land was a big blow to the Israelis....losing our heavenly inheritance because we choose to give in to the pleasures/pressures of the world would be a bigger blow....eternal regrets....millions and millions of years will be spent regretting....I pray that none of us will ever have to face that...I also pray for grace to frequently be tuned to God's frequency:))
God bless you all

Good morning Christian Brothers and Sisters! I would like to offer up my thoughts on today’s Scripture readings. In Ezekiel 47:12 we read, “Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing." First we need to establish that this river will not come into being until the old earth passes away and is replaced with the new earth. We are told that when we leave this present earth at the time of our earthly death and join Christ in His Kingdom that there will be only refreshing joy from that second on – there will be no illness, grief, or need for personal healing. Revelation 22:2 tells us, “On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” During the entire history of the world there has never been a time when one tribe was not fighting another or one country at war with another. The healing leaves are not for healing of the saints because Christ already eliminated the need for that! The healing leaves are for the healing of nations – never again on the new earth will there be any animosity between people. The new world will be one totally at peace – how wonderful that will be!

God Bless!

Now for my next thoughts – those on Proverbs 28:13, “He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” It is so easy for us to just say to God when we pray, “forgive my sins”, without actually discussing our specific sins with God. We justify this by telling ourselves that God already knows how we have sinned so there’s no reason to go into detail when we pray. The reason for confessing our sins is not to let God know how we have sinned but instead to let God know that we recognized our sin! When we confess our specific sins to God, we need to tell Him what we did, how we felt, the effect it had on us and others – lay it all out on the table. It is only through a confession of this type can we truly renounce our sins.

God Bless!

Reading 1 Peter I felt a big relieve ...
"Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives."

My husband is not a Christian, it's not affecting our marriage in any way though. But it hurts me to know how he will not meet my savior when something happens to him. A couple of weeks ago my husband did join me to Church at a healing service and I saw how touched he was. I'm not pushing him to become a Christian, it doesn't work that way. But knowing that he might be won over just by seeing my purity ... that's a wonderful thought! I really do believe that my husband will see The Lord through my eyes one day. It's just a matter of time!

That's beautiful! Yahweh Shammah= The Lord Is There! I have been to Israel and stayed in Jersualem a few days...its actually very modern and kind of a party town, but even amongst any unglodliness. there is something so strong there, I cant describe the wonder and the beauty of that place...words cant express, but God sure is there!

I swam..or floated in the dead sea, its amazing...its physically impossible to sink! If you have cuts, ouch!, but you go in there you are healed instantly...and if it gets in your eyes, ouchhh and blindddd. Israel was definatley the most amazing experience of my life...especially when u know your BIble and you see all the places events occured at...my words do it no justice, but if this world, the "curse" is that amazing, i cant IMAGE heaven.

Definately our souls wage war against worldly desires! Like when Paul spoke of the fact the things he hates he does and the things he wants to do he doesnt. Doesnt mean we should give up cause 'its our fallen nature'...its a struggle, but well worth it, amazing blessings!

v 12 and 15 spoke to me...when u are accused of something, your honorableness will prevail, and be counted praise to God. A few yrs ago I was falsely accused of some bad things, when I was doing something good for them, by my friend and her family "christians", it was embarressing and heartbreaking. Plus, my former friend spread it like wildfire...when i tried to keep it quiet b'cos I knew it would bring shame to them, b'cos ppl knew me and they knew this family...and I wasnt the one who's intergrity/honor was questionable. It hurt soooo bad...not just the accusations, but the loss of friendship..and the fact this family really thought this of me. but I had to realize God knew the truth and thats what mattered. I dont know why i had to go through that and to this day it saddens me. ...it was really really heartbreaking for me.

Psalm is very beautiful! love it!
