Redemptive Tip

A redemptive act may be giving a $20.00 tip and a kind word
to a waitress under a heavy load of family problems after a
mean-spirited customer cussed her out for no good reason
and left her an 11 cent tip.

sang at Grace International. We pray you
are encouraged as you listen.

Your Home #22

Your Home #22 – May your home be a place where people dwell on the good report.

“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating
on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst;
the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you
learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes
everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” (Phil.4:8-9, Msg)

Redeeming Property

For Sale
A redemptive act may be buying a piece of property that has been used for pornography or human trafficking or manufacturing illegal drugs, then taking that property and using it to help addicts get delivered or using it as a home for abandoned children. It has been done several times across the nation.

Provision Of Ancient Of Days

Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom, 06.26.15:

Declaration especially to you older folk: Our God is the Ancient of Days, and I declare to you that He is giving to you out of His days your days. Your days are not determined by your genes or your DNA. Your days are not determined by how long your grandma lived or didn’t live. Your days are not determined by a diagnosis or a prognosis. Your days are dependent upon the purpose of God that you were born with. You came out of your momma’s womb with purpose.

In this 2 min. audio encouragement Kathy
declares: “Your Redeemer lives and He is
able to buy back time that the locusts have eaten.”

Redemptive Word Of Affirmation

A redemptive act can be as simple as speaking a word of affirmation to a child who has been abused or neglected or bullied. That word of affirmation may possibly save their life. One day when we were eating at a restaurant I noticed a large family who had gathered to eat at several tables pulled together. There was a young man about 15 years old that the Lord began speaking to me about. I went over and gave the word the Lord had given me for him. Weeping, His dad pulled me aside and told me that I had just saved his son’s life. He was planning to commit suicide but that word spoke specifically to his need. The boy then joined us and thanked me and told me what it meant to him and how it had changed him and given him hope.

Meeting The Groan

HandsReachingUpAs the people of God assemble today, may they receive the invigorating, equipping Word of God that will compel them to meet the groan of creation. That groan that is for those revealed as the authorized and empowered sons who release the compassion and power of the risen Christ to assuage the groan of that which is out from under the order of the King of Kings.
“[ Present distress is temporary and negligible ] In my opinion whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future God has planned for us. The whole creation is on tiptoe to see the wonderful sight of the sons of God coming into their own. The world of creation cannot as yet see reality, not because it chooses to be blind, but because in God’s purpose it has been so limited—yet it has been given hope. And the hope is that in the end the whole of created life will be rescued from the tyranny of change and decay, and have its share in that magnificent liberty which can only belong to the children of God! (Rom.8:18-21, JB Phillips)

The Giant And The Stone

StoneSlingshotThough the giant loomed large in the valley (1Sam.17:3-4), God had sent a shepherd boy over the top of the hill for the purpose of going down into that valley. An army did not take out the giant. A small smooth stone from an ordinary shepherd’s sling was all it took to end the giant’s career.
Something very ordinary ordained by God to be applied in a unique circumstance turned the tide for a nation. The faithful God of Israel still does business the same way He always has.
