Numbers 26:52-28:15 / Luke 3:1-22 / Psalm 61:1-8 / Proverbs 11:16-17
Luke 3: 3-6
“And he (John the Baptist) went through all the region around the Jordan preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. As it is written in the book of the Prophet Isaiah saying,
“Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill brought low. The crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough ways smooth. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
How awesome is it that the God we serve is a God who SAVES, REDEEMS, HEALS and RESTORES bringing HOPE and ABUNDANT LIFE! One of His favorite things is entering into a person’s heart - filling the emptiness (the low places), healing the brokenness (places of damage and wounding), making the crooked places (wrong thinking, living and believing) straight and smoothing out the rough spots (replacing the lies of the enemy with His truth so life can be livedSTRONG and STEADFAST!). It’s a miraculous work that only HE can do!
Thank You Lord for Your desire to HEAL, RESTORE and make our lives WHOLE and HEALTHY so we can LIVE NOW (and ETERNALLY!!) and BEAR GREAT FRUIT!
