For behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, Takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah The stock and the store, The whole supply of bread and the whole supply of water;
Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Hope you are having a wonderful day and week so far! We are back! Sammie’s Daily Dose is back! We took a break on the blog posts due to certain reasons. By God’s Grace, we are back! Can you believe in about 2 and a half months, Sammie’s Daily Dose will be three! Wow! God has been faithful! Today, we are very grateful to you for your support over the years. God richly bless you all!
Before our break (and the Faith mini-series), we were exploring the book of Isaiah! Today, we are continuing our series with the ninth lesson. This lesson can be drawn from Isaiah 3. Are you ready?
Let us get right into the message…
As Children of God, we know that God will judge, not only our actions, but our thoughts! At times, we forget that we are living a life for God. We get so used to all the things God has graciously given us and forget Him in many instances of our lives! The God we serve is a jealous God! We cannot keep doing what we like and focusing on Him only when it is convenient! We cannot keep sinning and come back to Him for forgiveness every single day! The Father we serve is very kind and loving, yet, He has His limits. We would not want to be on His bad side.
The verse we are looking at today, we see that Jerusalem and Judah were facing God’s wrath for turning away from Him. This verse is the first in the chapter and it is talking about food and water! As humans, food and water are the things that we need to grow healthy! Spiritual food and water are needed to grow closer to God and have a more intimate relationship with Him! God was denying them the things they need for growth both physically and spiritually.
When we turn away from God, we are denied the opportunity to have a relationship with Him! Honestly, how can you survive this world without God? Physically, when we do not have food and water, our immune system gets weaker and weaker! This means that we are more susceptible to diseases and illnesses; evidently leading to death. This death might be slow but surely is a painful one! Equally, the same happens in the spiritual realms!
When Christ leaves you, your spirit is exposed! The enemy can use you so many times, destroying you! Now, you do not get to enjoy eternal life! You are dead!
My dear brother or sister in Christ, be careful how you live your life! Be careful to do everything God asks of us- written in His Word! This life we live is not our own! Why are we in a rush? What are we chasing? If we use at least a quarter of the energy we use chasing the things of this world to follow God, our reward would be far greater than we can imagine! Making the decision to follow God, is one we must do well to stick to it! Today, put God first! Make a conscious effort to live righteous lives- as you spend time getting to truly know God, He would reveal Himself to you!
This is because if you do not live a Christ-like life, you will suffer for it! in such a case, "WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO HANDLE GOD'S JUDGEMENT?"
God richly bless you!
1. Thank the Holy Spirit for this reminder!
2. Thank God for His Grace and Mercy!
3. Pray for Christians worldwide that they may continue to choose Christ each day!
4. Ask God for strength to choose Him through it all!
End with a time of praise and worship!
I thank you for my life. I thank you for giving me another beautiful day. I ask that you guide me and protect me. I pray that I will choose you in every situation that I face. And that my life will be a testimony and an example to many that I have Christ living in me. Thank you, Lord, for sending your son to die on the cross and wipe my sins away. I lift your name high for you are Alpha and Omega. Amen!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
1. Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
2. Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out
