September 1 "All is His" Ezekiel 18, 19

When we stand before the Lord, we will give account for our sins.  Our souls will die if we keep on sinning and do not repent.  ;"Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine." Ezekiel 18:4

"The Lord overrules every event for the eternal good of believers. All souls are in the hand of the great Creator: he will deal with them in justice or mercy; nor will any perish for the sins of another, who is not in some sense worthy of death for his own."  Matthew Henry

Our times are in His Hands.  All our days; All our ways.  Consider what you are doing----not to do penance for His Finished Work is complete.  

COME BOLDLY:  Timeless Prayers
May we see through the filter of Truth what it means to walk in Truth.  Strengthen us in the inner man that we walk by faith not by what we see.  

PHOTO:  Whether we live in Ezekiel's day or the generation in this photo, God remains the same.  His finished work covers all our sins.  So what will I do with this besetting sin?  Will I wrestle well and lean hard on the One Who holds our souls.

  1. Our physical lives as well as our spiritual lives are in His hand. His judgments are righteous and true. He does not hold us accountable for our families' or ancestors' sin. Our choices are our choices.

    Lord, Please show us areas in which our lives are not pleasing to You.

  2. "Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares the Lord God. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin.Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.”

    Our own ways are not just. The Lord's Way is just and merciful. He is Life. It does matter what we do, not for earning points toward salvation, but He is watching our ways. He is watching how we treat the poor and needy. For the joy set before us, and out of the overflow of His Love within us, may we act accordingly.

  3. Oh! Yes! Yes! Yes! And there is something about today being September 1, a new year, as some say. We always have a fresh marble slate with words waiting to be engraved on our hearts. May we begin this new year with His Energy, His Passion, His Love, His Mercy. We need Him so!
