Wig’s Word of God Today 6-19-2012
When Ahab heard these words, he tore his garments and put sackcloth next to his skin and fasted; he slept in the sackcloth; he walked with slow steps. First Kings 21:27
I was born guilty, a sinner from the moment of conception. But You delight in sincerity of heart, and in secret You teach me wisdom. Psalm 51:5-6
I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for He causes His sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike. Matthew 5:44-45
First Kings 21:17-29, Psalm 51 & Matthew 5:43-48
Sometimes in life we realize way too late how we should have acted when it comes to following the Decrees of our LORD. We know in our heart how important it is to seek something we want but we forgo the necessary steps of seeking God’s approval first when situating our lives around our desires. King Ahab is one of these people who hadn’t placed God first in seeking his desires and selfishly allowed his wife to make decisions for him instead of taking the time to pray and allow the Spirit of the LORD to direct him in his every thought, action and deed.
Upon learning he was “caught,” he immediately began a fast mourning his decision hoping in that in his failed desires to overcome his lack of attention and control he’d repent and mourn his own undesired decisions. The LORD took notice of his sincerity to find remorse in his heart and took pity on him the same way the LORD will take pity on you for making decisions of haste that result in a need to repent. “Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? Since he has humbled himself before Me, I shall not bring the disaster in his days.” First Kings 21:29a
Without placing God first in every decision you make, you find your ways of thinking imploring you to ask God for forgiveness living instead in a form of repentance instead of living in an absolute celebration of God’s Eternal Promises. In your sincerity of heart, God will recognize your sorrowfulness and grant you pardon by your belief in His Only Son Christ Jesus. The secret to living in His Grace continually is to establish an absolute technique of surrender in every aspect of your life finding not your own will but God’s Will in His Divine Plan for your life.
Jesus reminds us today we are to eliminate envy from our vocabulary because God’s Divine Plan for humanity allows the rain to fall on the just and unjust but in the end God’s Judgment will fall on every human alive based on a life of faith, hope and love. We must all eliminate resentment from our hearts and live according to His Will accomplishing every aspect of life God has in store for our lives.
When you practice, pray and preach in secret, God’s Wisdom will fall upon you like the soft snow from the sky. This secret of learning to take possession of His Word to find God’s True Joy of an Everlasting Life will make you a True child of God. Amen.
In prayer we ask: Dear LORD, we pray today to live according to Your Decrees to find the wisdom You LORD will grant us by our submission to Your Truth. We pray for the NJ Emmaus Team and Candidates. We pray for our NC Emmaus Team’s preparation. We pray for our own intentions to live in God’s Truth. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Our Father wants perfection instead of liars- Matthew 5:43-48
Jesus teaching His Disciples
Spoke of an old wise tale
People say to love your neighbor
And hate your enemy to fail
Jesus said you should love your enemies
Pray for those who will be going to hell
They persecute you in hate from lies
Be a Child of God by your Heavenly Father to tell
On all of humanity who are good or lust
All people have free will to find in detail
For the rain gives life to the just and unjust
For God makes the sun rise and fall to smell
Loving your neighbors and friends
Aren’t special to God’s human desires
All pagans do the same in life
Our Father wants perfection instead of liars
