Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Loyalty to God Wins the Fight”
Text: 1 Kings 15:14
“But the high places were not removed. Nevertheless Asa’s heart was loyal to the LORD all his days.”
The principle that “Loyalty to God Wins the Fight,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
King Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord like his great-great grandfather King David did.
“He commanded Judah to seek the LORD God of their fathers, and to observe the law and the commandment.”(2Chron.14:4). However in the later years of his life Asa, he was rebuked by God’s prophet Hanani because he “relied on the king of Syria instead of relying on the LORD., (2Chron.16:7-10). Instead of repenting he hardened his heart toward God, imprisoned Hanani, and oppressed the people of Judah.
Our take away lesson from Asa’s life is that he was a good man who started with a loyal heart to God, but in his later years his heart toward God
became hardened with unbelief, and he didn’t finish well.
You and I encounter battles every day. Some battles are greater than others, but the Weapon of Choice For Every Fight is “Faithfulness To God,” it wins every fight!
You and I Stand fast upon our Commander’s Word, and In His Presence At All Times - In Every Battle for Righteousness!
Listen up Warrior! Loyalty To God is not a one-time-thing, it’s A Lifetime Journey! It’s a Reminder Jesus and I leave with you at the end of EVERY Devotion…. Semper Fidelis, which means:
Hear God’s Words to the Church of Smyrna:
“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write,
‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life:
“I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” (Rev.2:8-10).
Loyalty To God Wins The Fight!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
