Outside The Camp

 

Take me outside
my situations

to where You died
for me

so I can be sanctified
and set apart

made holy
unto Thee.

**********

Lord Jesus, I desire to be set apart for You.

**********

“. . . that is, all the rest of the bull, he is to bring outside the camp to a clean place where the ashes are poured out, and burn it on a fire of wood. Where the ashes are poured out it shall be burned. [Hebrews 13:11-13]. ” Leviticus 4:12 AMP

“Therefore Jesus also suffered and died outside the [city] gate so that He might sanctify and set apart for God as holy the people [who believe] through [the shedding of] His own blood.”
Hebrews 13:11-13 AMP

A Most Holy Offering

 

Most holy
doesn’t mean

the biggest and
the best

but the time
and loving care

the divine
process.

**********

Lord, I want to offer You my time, my hands, my heart.

**********

“And what is left of the grain offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’. It is a most holy offering of the offerings to the LORD made by fire.” Leviticus 2:10 NKJV

A Sweet Aroma

 

Whether it be
a bull or dove

or of the flocks
of sheep

it was what
was in their hearts

that made the offering
sweet.

**********

Lord, I want my life to be a sweet and soothing aroma to You, an offering by Holy Spirit fire.

**********

“It is a burnt offering, an offering by fire, a sweet and soothing aroma to the LORD.”
Leviticus 1:17. NKJV

Offerings

 

Speak to the children
and say to them

bring Me an offering
of what you have

and it will be found
acceptable

for atonement’s been made
on your behalf.

***********

Lord, thank you for being the ultimate perfect sacrifice for my sins. Please help me to daily give You all I am and have.

***********

“The LORD called to Moses and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying,”

“Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘When any one of you brings an offering to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of [domestic] animals from the herd (cattle, oxen) or from the flock (sheep, goats).’ “

“He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering [transferring symbolically his guilt to the sacrifice], that it may be accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf. [Heb.13:15,16 ; 1Peter 1:2].

Leviticus 1:1,2,4. AMP

Submit To God

 

Submit to God
surrender

each
and everything

so you can
resist the devil

and send him
scampering.

**********

Lord, I want to stay submitted to You in every way.

**********

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 NKJV

Fruit Of Righteousness

 

The fruit of righteousness
is sown in peace

by those who make
peace too

born of His wisdom
pure and gentle

full of mercy
through and through.

**********

Lord, I desire Your righteousness to be sown in me and bear fruit, by the wisdom that only can come from You.

**********

“But where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing will be there.”

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”

“Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

James 3:16,17,18. NKJV

Blessing And Cursing

 

We bless God
and curse men

who were made in
the image of Him

blessing and cursing
from the same mouth

needs forgiveness
and His healing.

**********

Lord, help me be more and more aware of what comes out of my mouth, waiting before I speak. I desire to bless with my words or not talk at all.

**********

“But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”

“With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.”

“Out of he same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.”

James 3:8,9,10. NKJV

Working Together

 

Faith without works
is not alive

the two must be
together

just as Abraham
offered his son

Isaac
upon the altar.

**********

Lord Jesus, I desire the faith to not only believe, but to act on those beliefs.

**********

“Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?”

“Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?”

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

James 2:21,22,26 NKJV

Mercy Triumphs

 

Judgement is
without mercy

to the one who has
shown none

but mercy triumphs
over judgement

as we love and follow
the Son.

**********

Lord Jesus, I desire to show mercy to others on a daily basis, instead of judgement.

**********

“For judgement is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgement.” James 2:13 NKJV

Chosen

 

God has chosen
the poor of this world

to be rich
in faith

making them
heirs of the kingdom

loving Him and filled
with grace.

**********

Lord, I want to be rich in faith and not in the things of this world. Please help me see with impartial eyes.

**********

“Listen my beloved brethren : Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?” James 2:5. NKJV
