As a young boy I always wanted to do what I saw everyone else do and my parents always nailed me with that ever popular cliché.
If all your friends all went and jumped in the lake, would you follow them in?
We have been trained by the world to speak out what we see. When Jesus was crossing the lake with His disciples they said the “wind is boisterous”, they spoke out and said “we will perish”. They woke up Jesus but He would not speak out what they said, He rebuked the wind and it became calm.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Why can’t people in “the flesh” please God? People who live exclusively in the flesh are moved by what they see, touch, smell, hear and taste. These five attributes of the flesh are the bases of all their confessions. This will not come to an end even after the new birth, these confessions will not change until the convert begins to “renew their mind”. When a saint renews their mind they stop repeating what they see, and they speak what God says in His Word.
So then they that are of faith will work to always please God.
The man who lives by the faith of the Son of God does not repeat what he sees, he repeats what he hears God say. This man has found the secret of living the blessed life, He now lives in blessed hope, he expects God to confirm His Word over him every day.
I know the grace of God,
it came from His love for me.
Jesus was a wealthy man,
but the curse made Him poor so I could be increased with wealth.
Jesus is my Passover,
I eat His body and drink His blood.
I have His life within me,
a life of peace and abundance.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
