Good Monday morning, everyone in the US and laila tov to you, Israel! I want to introduce a ministry and friends I’m working with to promote Yah’s faithful word on a more regular basis as I share Ze’ev (Willie) and Orith Cunningham’s passion for the Word of YHWH and intercessory work in Nahariya (North of Haifa), or, as Willie likes to say, the upper left ventricle of the heart of Israel!
Ze’ev and Orith’s website is wonderful and I highly recommend a visit – http://asherhouseembassy.weebly.com/
Today’s word is
“Pay attention unto my voice”
Jeremiah 7:22-23 For I spoke not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: 23 but this thing I commanded them, saying, Hearken unto my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people: and walk you in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.
There is a difference between doing what we believe to be the right thing to do and doing what God tells us to do. Offerings and sacrifices can be done to fill a need to feel good about ourselves. But obeying God’s voice and doing what He wants us to do, requires a change of our heart toward God. Some believe that we can do what we like even if we know that it is a mistake to do it; because we are disobeying God’s word. They believe that they can do this because they can go to the Father and repent for their sin and that God will forgive them. The problem with this thinking is that the blessing and favor of God can be withheld from you until your heart has changes concerning this sin. “That it may be well with you.”
