S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
“They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.”
The Lord said through the prophet Jeremiah that His prophets were not who they professed to be. He said His people were not just hurting, they were really wounded, and the “Men Of God” only put band-aids on big problems instead of treating them as really serious wounds. They got used to saying happy things like “Peace, Peace” and there wasn’t Peace at all. These men were nothing more than “Phony Prophets!”
Somewhere in our great land there must be men and women of courage who will love people enough to go down into the pit of wretchedness and love people out of hell itself. That kind of rescue only happens when professed Holy Leaders really are Holy Leaders instead of “Phony Prophets.” No matter what the devil throws in the pathway of a true man or woman of God, they always find a way to leap over it, tunnel through it, or go around it. Either way they will not be defeated by Satan’s continual attacks. Why? Because they really care about God’s people. They really care about people finding freedom and having a life that counts. Most of all, they haven’t yielded to the temptation to be a “Phony Prophet.” I’m only believing, as I’m sure you are, that the Lord will keep me from being a flake and instead help me be a man who truly loves people all the way to heaven.
I want to be the same from the inside out. I want to be real. I want to love people no matter what it costs or takes to love them. There’s no hope for this happening to me unless You have full control of me. So one more time, I give you everything, I’m yours! Amen
