Daily Read – Deuteronomy 9:1-10:22; Luke 8:4-21; Psalm 69:19-36; Proverbs 12:2-3
A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
But a man of wicked intentions
He will condemn.
A man is not established by wickedness,
But the root of the righteous cannot be moved.
I am a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of your heart. Nothing escapes My notice because I know all things. I see the kindness of your heart that motivates your actions. This paves your journey with extreme favor.
Heaven’s blessings pour over your entire life when your compassionate heart moves toward the poor and imprisoned. I watch as you tenderly stroke the forehead of the downcast and scorned. My heart responds to your loving kindness.
I trust you with hearts of the most broken and abused in this world. I’ve called you to reach the wounded ones who desperately need to see a demonstration of My goodness. You are My gift of love to the hurting. Sadly, there are some in My church whose intentions are less than honorable. They bring further hurt instead of healing to these precious ones. Their roots are established in ungodliness and do not reflect My Kingdom.
Arise My beautiful, surrendered bride and take My goodness to this world. I shower your path with My favor because you choose righteousness over worldliness. My favor opens doors and will lead you to places you never thought possible. Your roots are established reaching deep into the wells of My living waters. They are embedded into the Rock of your salvation. Nothing can rock your world because you are not of this world. You live, move, and have your being in Me.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life!
Precious Jesus, I surrender. I want to partner with You to touch and bring healing to the most fragile and bruised in this world. I desire to be rooted and grounded in Your love, so Your goodness radiates to everyone I meet. Search me Lord and if You find impure motives, purge them from my heart. I want to decrease that You would increase in My life. I want to escape the notice of people, so You would be the only one remembered. Thank You for Your goodness in my life!
