And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. —Galatians 3:29

Tough Love

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. —Revelation 3:19

{ Day 322 }

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. —2 Peter 3:9, NKJV

Weekend Warriors

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. —2 Corinthians 10:4

{ Day 321 }

To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. —2 Corinthians 12:7-9

Being Accepted

{ Day 320 }

The Lord said to me, "Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adulteress. Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes." So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and about a homer and a lethek of barley. Then I told her, "You are to live with me many days; you must not be a prostitute or be intimate with any man, and I will live with you." For the Israelites will live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred stones, without ephod or idol. Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the Lord their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the Lord and to his blessings in the last days. —Hosea 3:1-5

{ Day 319 }

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. I do not receive honor from men. But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. ... How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? —John 5:39-42, 44, NKJV

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. —Revelation 20:15

The Providence of God

What is impossible with men is possible with God. —Luke 18:27

{ Day 318 }

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. —Ephesians 1:17-19

Suffering and Sovereignty

{ Day 317 }

The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread, and he will be a sanctuary; but for both houses of Israel he will be a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare. —Isaiah 8:13-14

Escalating Population

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. —Revelation 10:11

The ABCs of Worship at the Lord's Table

The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." —1 Corinthians 11:23-25

{ Day 316 }

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. —1 Corinthians 12:7-11
