On New Year’s Eve, my pastor and mentor Allen had this word for us: “Obey and serve God in 2013 and prosper and be blessed.”
If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. (Job 36:11 KJV)
Serving God and His people also means loving His people. Obeying God means keeping His commandments. Jesus said, “if you love me keep my commandments.”
My friend Day Gardner just wrote this to me.
1 Kings 18. – interesting that in Ahab’s evil government — there stood Obadiah.
I found myself chuckling a bit when Obadiah was speaking to Elijah.
Elijah said to Obadiah “Go tell Ahab I am here”. Obadiah said wait a minute…you want me to tell that crazy, crazy man–that wants you dead by the way– with the really crazy and evil wife, Jezebel– that you are here? …and if I do tell Ahab — and they find that you left—they will kill ME!
Then he says…hey, by the way does God know that I helped save the lives of 100 Holy men…by hiding them and feeding them?
And with Elijah’s promise–Obadiah is obedient and does what he is told to do.
I love GOD’s Word!
Lesson learned: Even in the most evil government GOD has planted people of faith to do HIS bidding. I am praying this morning for those people in Obama’s evil administration and other areas of government who are in believers in JESUS–working to save lives and souls. I am praying that they may be sustained by faith and encouraged in prayer to stand and continue to fight the good fight.
Together, in CHRIST,
