Today’s Prayer (02/07/2020)

Oh Lord, give people understanding this day. Help them know if what they are doing is for You or against You. And if what people are up to is not in line with Your standards, convict them of their sins. People need to understand that repentance is not a bad thing, but necessary, in order for You to do a work in our lives. Surely, we cannot continue living in willful sin and think that we are ok in Your sight. People know already that they are in sin, but are only denying it, in order to continue to fulfill their own lusts. Even their conscience is acting up, and because of what they are watching on TV, looking at on their phones and other devices, places they go to, along with people they hang out with, they have become numb to what is good and what is evil. This is very disheartening and can only stop if people would allow You to come into their lives. Then, would they know that living a life pleasing for You also means changing our lifestyle to fit Yours. For how can the Holy Spirit come inside of me if I am continually looking at porn, going to the bars, doing drugs, watching TV and movies with bad language, killing, and sexual connotations, playing shoot-em-up games, and listening to the wrong music. The answer is that I cannot be on Your side and still do these things. So I pray that You will continue to work in my life and others. This way our choices will become righteous and holy. Even our actions and what we decide to do will also reflect this will to follow You. I love You, Lord. Thank You for leading me on the right path. I was lost, but You found me. Your blood has covered me and now I am forgiven. Thank You, Lord. I give You the praise and the glory. Amen.

2 Samuel 16:11,12

2 Samuel 16:11,12 (KJV)
11 And David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, Behold, my son, which came forth of my bowels, seeketh my life: how much more now may this Benjamite do it? let him alone, and let him curse; for the Lord hath bidden him.
12 It may be that the Lord will look on mine affliction, and that the Lord will requite me good for his cursing this day.

Nathan’s Prophesy About David’s Sin Came True

It was in this time that “Ahithophel said unto Absalom, Go in unto thy father’s concubines, which he hath left to keep the house; and all Israel shall hear that thou art abhorred of thy father: then shall the hands of all that are with thee be strong.
