Daily Devotion : Hosea 3 MSG

Hosea 3The Message

In Time They’ll Come Back

Then God ordered me, “Start all over: Love your wife again,
    your wife who’s in bed with her latest boyfriend, your cheating wife.
Love her the way I, God, love the Israelite people,
    even as they flirt and party with every god that takes their fancy.”

2-3 I did it. I paid good money to get her back.
    It cost me the price of a slave.
Then I told her, “From now on you’re living with me.
    No more whoring, no more sleeping around.
    You’re living with me and I’m living with you.”

* * *

4-5 The people of Israel are going to live a long time
    stripped of security and protection,
without religion and comfort,
    godless and prayerless.
But in time they’ll come back, these Israelites,
    come back looking for their God and their David-King.
They’ll come back chastened to reverence
    before God and his good gifts, ready for the End of the story of his love.

The Jesus Letter: Don’t You Know That God Loves You 

The Jesus Letter: Don’t You Know That God Loves You 

In a world where there is so many opinions about who and what you should be, you must know that God loves you. Do not be conformed to this world but embrace the renewing of the mind that God has for you. God loves you and you are very important to him.  

Prayer:  

Father, help me to see my value in you Jesus Christ. Amen.  

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. – Romans 12:2

How To Deal With Persecution At Work  

A few years ago, I worked in the field of human relations. In the time I was in a environment that I was not supposed to be in due to listening to the wrong people. From the beginning that job was a mess. At that time, the money was good, but again the job was a mess. Eventually, I was told that I was not allowed to pray for people at work nor was I allowed to say Jesus. That did not stop me. One night I had a dream and the Lord told me to quit my job and to “follow me”. A few years later God has blessed me with one million impressions and having two topical Bibles reach number one on Amazon. I say this to say that persecution is meant to bring your heart closer to Jesus. Do not be weary in well doing. Keep going and trust God. 

Sincerely,
