Daily Bible Reading - Psalm 83

Good Morning World!

My God can do anything!  It's amazing what can happen when we truly put our lives in the Master's hands.  God is so Good!

This chapter this morning really is special, because it fits in with our revival services theme, "My God Can Do Any Thing!"  When God lays something on a heart it is amazing how He will bring things into the light to help you understand what He really wants.

Psalm 83  (This seems to be the last Psalm by Asaph, but he certainly left one of the best for last.)

This is a call from the people of God to God.  This is a call for action, for revival and vengeance.  Why?  Why, should the people of God feel the need to be so aggressive?  War.  The battle for their families, worship, land, homes and churches is laying claim to too many lives.  The people of God are calling for retribution on those who have destroyed and schemed against them.

Even though this is a very old scripture about a people who had many war problems the same thing still happens everyday around the world.  It happens, but most will never notice.  People don't recognize the fact that the world of sin is apart of many if not most congregations around the globe.  The people of God are being over run by lust, pleasure, greed and hate.  The Church is dying a slow painful death, and we must wake up before it is too late to rescue.

It's like never going to the doctor when you know your sick, but your just don't want to find out what the problem is.  Finally, you go because you're coughing up blood or you can't walk, and the doctor says, "If I had seen you 3 months ago we could have saved you.  Now it is too late and you only have a couple months to live!"  Now how do you feel?  Like a complete idiot for hiding behind your fear!  You could have lived, but now you are a walking corps.

We the Church, the people of God, but cry out to Him with our whole heart, and declare that we are not going to surrender, and we are going to war through prayer, fasting, and intersession.  As verses 16-18 say: "Fill their face with shame; that they may seek your name, O Lord. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea let them be put to shame, and perish: that men may know that you, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth."

We must not let the subtle wickedness of this world and age lull us to sleep and our doom.  We must stand up and fight with the Word of God and prayer!  No, this is not a call to arms and physical punishment.  Yes, this is a call to global awakening and revival of the soul and spirit.  Too long have we allowed the lust of our flesh dictate our actions.  We must no longer follow our lust, but we must follow the Spirit of the most High God, Jesus Christ our Saviour!  We must let the whole world know that Jesus is the Lord, and His sacrifice will save and deliver all from the pains of sin, death, addiction, sickness and disease.

Yours for revival, because My God CAN Do Anything!
