As the people of God assemble today may people
be saved, healed and delivered by the saving power
of Jesus Christ and His shed blood at Calvary.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it
is the power of God to salvation for everyone who
believes…” (Rom.1:16a, NKJV)
May the Lord cause individuals, companies and
entities to work in cooperation with His purposes for you.
“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate
instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you
really are, and your place in God’s family.” (Matt.5:9, Msg)
In Absalom, the people got the appearance and looks that fit their agenda but they didn’t get the character in the man. He was able to present a fine appearance and a desirable program but there was no character behind the appearance. Absalom got the results of a self-promoter and Israel got the privilege of dealing with the fallout. Maybe if we give ourselves to time and process and track records, we will have less fallout to deal with.
“And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;” (1Thess.5:12, KJV)
The one who knows Jehovah God knows that, in spite of what circumstances or people have done, God Almighty still has a purpose of His own in that person’s life. This Great God is too wise to act irrationally and too compassionate to be cruel. We are in Christ Jesus and giving thanks from that position from which nothing nor anyone can remove us.
“I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” (Rom.8:38-39, Msg)
“…Thanksgiving is our dialect.” (Eph.5:4b, Msg)

2> The second question God asked Adam was, “Who told you that you were naked?” In other words, who judged you and put your value on the line and undermined your affirmation? God had created Adam in His own image and put him on earth with undeniable, detailed daily purpose, so there was no lack of affirmation. I believe the “who” is what God was emphasizing in this question because “naked” was nothing new. If this was Friday, Adam had been naked on Thursday too. The real issue was “who” decided Adam was worth less in the last twenty-four hours? Mature sons shouldn’t hide when they need to repent. Sowing fig leaves was an attempt to fix things without repentance. Repentance is going up to the “pent-house” (mind) to see from a higher, God perspective and change our thinking. No change in thinking means no real change. The question pointed out that it was Adam who believed his identity was damaged. It was not God that was doubting worth or abandoning. In fact, it never is God that decides worth is diminished.
