MY DEVO TODAY 2COR. 1-2 / PS.29 / PR.29 NLT
MESSAGE - 2 Corinthians 2:15 NLT
15 Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.
This to say we who have been saved and are living for Jesus are viewed as freaks by most of the world of which is unsaved, but to those who have the same calling that has been placed on them by God, because He called those He wanted, can smell that sweet perfume smell of Jesus which a calling to salvation. So they are able to hear the Word which is Jesus.
PROMISE - 2 Corinthians 1:4-5 NLT
4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
Psalm 29:11 The LORD gives his people strength.
The LORD blesses them with peace.
COMMAND - 2 Corinthians 2:7 NLT
7 Now, however, it is time to forgive and comfort him. Otherwise he may be overcome by discouragement.
To me this speaks of someone who started a walk with the Lord, something happened, fell down, stumbled etc etc...
Help Him stand back up now is not the time to rebuke Him its atoms to lift him back to his and let him see he is loved just S Jesus loves for how many times has God helped us back up especially in the beginning.
WARNING - Proverbs 29:11, 25 NLT
11 Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.
25 Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the LORD means safety.
PERSONAL APP - I am struck hard by the message as it clearly says to me that when we are in Christ, walking holy , all things that go along with this, we become a sweet fragerance for the chosen, the ones who's hearts are harden and refuse to hear the Word of God calling them , they smell a totally different smell. That's just awesome to me ,for lack of a better word. I am thankful to have this blessing and anointing, I.want to be known as man who loves Jesus or a Jesus freak or whatever people chose to call me, for it really don't matter to me I'm going to keep on living my life to help someone in there walk with the Lord, share the Word of God so souls can be saved, all to make HIM famous forever and ever... amen...
