Oh Lord, many people are living for You, not giving in to the persecutions of this wicked world. We know Your ways and will abide in Your presence until Your second coming. It is better for us to sing praises unto our God that saves than to give in to the things of this world. Nothing this world can offer us can measure up to the love that You show us daily. You lift us up from our burdens. You give us strength when we are weak. Your wrath is upon the wicked, but Your love is upon Your people. This same love I want to share with everyone around me. Any person that You put in my path, open my mouth so that I might help people know You, Jesus. I am unashamed of Your gospel, for it is the power of God in me. Have Your way in me, Jesus. Lead me from temptation. The enemy does come against me daily, but Your power makes me strong to resist. Lord, there are so many people who say they are for You that are really against You. This world is so wicked and all I need to do is talk to somebody for a few minutes to know if they really side for You. The Holy Spirit makes what is true and false so plain to my eyes. Thank You, Jesus. I can see because You have broken every chain. My life is Yours. I love You. Amen.
Numbers 26:9-11 (KJV)
9 And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against the Lord:
10 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign.
11 Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.
A person who fights against God will come to know His wrath lest he or she repents before their last breath.
