Daily Devotional – 4/23/18 “It has too!”

I have been sitting here looking at my screen trying to hear from God on what to share. It’s Monday and there are some folk in worse off situations than they were last Monday; can a word from God change that? There are some, who have been crying, more today than in a year; can a word from God change that? I mean, this is only a devotional, inspired by the move of the Holy Ghost but can it really reach? Then I thought, it has too. It absolutely has too because the spiritual attacks I have to endure, for people I’ve never met; it has to reach. For the sleepless nights, I have to face, because God has need of my voice; it has to reach. For the times, I’ve had to pray for people whose names I don’t know; it has to reach. See, even though this is just a devotional, lives can be changed. Understand, I don’t pen words to a blog just for followers, I don’t utilize social media for likes and neither do I write books for a millionaire status. I do what God ordains because somebody needs to get to God. And I am here, willingly being used, to ensure you get to Him, by any means necessary. Why? Because there is a cry that isn’t being heard. There is a scream in the midnight that is being missed. There is some mental illness being swept under the rug. There are some folk, who stand on large platforms but are not in right fellowship with God.

Somebody preached, real well, on yesterday and today they are being tormented by the enemy. Somebody helped someone else, last week, with their electric bill and now the one who help needs help. Somebody shouted all over the altar yesterday and still needed pills and alcohol to sleep. Somebody got up this morning, got dressed for work, all while thinking about suicide. A principal is sitting somewhere in pain but she/he is in jeopardy of losing their job so they cannot take off. A pastor is on the way to get another check advance, because the plumbing needed to be repaired at the church, but folk constantly screaming, they are getting all the tithe money. What word can stop all this hell? Here are a few. Hope. Faith. Morning. Benediction.

• Hope – “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12
• Faith – “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
• Morning – “But I, O Lord, cry to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you.” Psalm 88:13
• Benediction – “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26

In other words. Hope in Faith that in the Morning your Suffering has no choice but to end.
