Daily Read – Jeremiah 49:23-50:46; Titus 1:1-16; Psalm 97:1-98:9; Proverbs 26:13-16
O you who love the Lord, hate evil; He preserves the lives of His saints (the children of God), He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. [Romans 8:13-17.]
Light is sown for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and strewn along their pathway, and joy for the upright in heart [the irrepressible joy which comes from consciousness of His favor and protection].
Rejoice in the Lord, you [consistently] righteous (upright and in right standing with God), and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
My children need to come to the place where they vehemently hate evil and all of its fruit. In this season, there is no room for compromise. My church cannot afford to embrace sin of any type secretly tucking it away calling it insignificant. It must be brought out from darkness into the light of My truth expelled forever from your life. You need to hate what evil has done in your life and in the lives of those you love.
As you look into the empty and tormented eyes of those who walk in this world, you see what evil has done to them. They are locked inside the prison of fear, despair, and hopelessness. This should cause you to rise up with an anger and hatred toward the enemy and his entire network of evil.
There are even those in My body who have fallen prey to the devices of the enemy and remain paralyzed by his lies. Rejoice! I triumphed over the enemy making a show of him openly. I guard My children and deliver them from the hand of the wicked. I have made a way of escape from all wickedness.
Everything you need to live a victorious Christian life is written in the pages of My Word. My instruction is the light that illuminates your path. You will never stumble in the dark if My Word remains the lamp to your feet and the light on your path. It will keep you safe, secure, and guarded from all lies of darkness.
As you walk in the Spirit, hating evil, you will recognize and receive the truth that you are My favored and protected one. No weapon formed against you can prosper because You are in My hand. An irrepressible joy will spring forth carpeting your daily walk with confident assurance that I have you and I will never let you go.
Heavenly Father, I desire to hate evil so much that I am repulsed and reviled by it! I have seen and experienced the wages of sin, but I have also seen and experienced the redemption of Christ! I call sin what it is...SIN. I will no longer make excuses or justifications. It is brought from the darkness of secrecy into the light of Your truth. I repent! I receive Your abundant mercy and forgiveness. Your Word is my treasure box and I commit to meditate in it day and night. I walk forward now, forgetting that which is behind. I walk with a joy in my step knowing You have my back! AMEN
Rejoice and give thanks for I am holy.
