There will always be tomorrow, no matter what day it comes.
Today’s scripture comes from Luke 5:11 and Mark 3:29. Big difference
God did not say, well you have one day or you have another day. No, He said, ” Today is the first day of the rest of your life” (Matthew 6:31). So that day is not the first day of the rest of your life. Neither is it God’s first day of the week. God’s first day is today.
Luke 5:11 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath Day?
Mark 3:29 On the Sabbath a certain woman was bonded to a hard black clay image of a man with one part of it bound, and the other part lose.
Now, all eyes are watching you. Nobody can look away. You are bound by the image of this man and the tradition of priests.
Nobody can look away from your habit patterns of breaking the shadow of this man. You cannot look away, while you continue to serve him.
He keeps his eyes on you and he thinks about you often, because he is going to send you out to tell people about me one day. He says I will send you out in Bethany on the shores of the Jordan to preach among the Gentiles as Paul had done, and I will send you out to the parks in Acts 20:22
He hopes for Paul to return to Rome in the body if possible, and for you to be able to return healthy and whole to minister to the Lord’s people.
What are you going to do? Are you going to survive this? Are you going to look at the way the sea mist glistens over the beach and consider that the Jesus Who came into my life has risen.
Or are you going to break this bondage of Paul and declare that you are a new creation in Christ Jesus, and go out and tell Gentiles?
God opened my eyes to see that this above all else is the most important decision I can make for my life. I now only have one life to live, and I want to live it in a way that loves so many that are hurting right now. I also want to be a witness to the world of the transforming power of God’s Love in my life, as I embrace the broken hearts and restore them in the way that Paul did during his time with the Lord.
Today I am thankful for the Abba Father. I am grateful that He sent his son to die for me, in order to reconcile me to Him. And I am grateful for the healing that I received because of this covenant.
Now I know what I have to do. I only have to do it, because it is now all up to me. If I don’t do it, then I will be the one that will be failing all of my leaders, and the Lord will not be able to perform His work. On the contrary, if I do it, then I will have the approval of my leaders and of man.
Now because I am a woman and have the testimony of the Bible, and the finished work of Jesus Christ, I am in good standing before God, and I am sure that my leaders will agree with me that it is time to start speaking the truth about the condition of my nation. NOW!
It is time for the women of God to stand up! We cannot be silent. Silence is disobedience. We must be always speaking the truth that God has set us free to embrace. The truth is that as a woman, under the corrupt and controlling influence of this world, we have stumbled. We have fallen. Therefore it is time to put this world behind us, and to harmonize our hearts with the Word of God and the love of God instead of the world, is not easy, and surely we can never be perfect.
But we have a command and a promise from the One who created us. He said:
“Call upon me and I will answer and show you great and mighty things.”
For I am the Lord God of hosts, the great, the one Mighty, and the Wholehearted.
For he has filled the hungry with good things not to be Plenty, and he has carried away the wounded, and cloths, and painter’s oil, to make the blind to see.
For I am the Lord, I do not change.
For I am the One counteracting all the violence.
