July 26 Experiencing God’s Love

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 5:6–10

Key Verse: Hebrews 5:8

Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.

What happens when you ignore God? In your mind, do you picture Him just walking away, looking forlorn and rejected? Or do you have a mental image of God getting mad at you and banishing you to forty years of wilderness wandering?

Neither is correct. God loves you perfectly. And His love for you is not based on your obedience. Though He tells us in His Word that obedience is better than sacrifice, the thing that God wants most from you is a love that comes from your heart.

He doesn’t stop loving you just because you do something wrong. None of us can earn God’s love by being good or trying to be perfect. For one, we do not have the ability to do either of these on our own. We need a Savior. And this is why Jesus came to die for you and me. He does the very thing that you cannot do for yourself. He makes you acceptable in God’s eyes. He sets you free from sin.

When we ignore the Lord, we are the ones who suffer and miss a great opportunity for blessing. God is not a strong and mighty taskmaster who waits for us to do something wrong so He can pounce. He is a loving God who listens for our cry. When He draws you to Himself, He uses love, not a rod of thunder. God knows that once you drink of His love, the world’s appeal will fade. Give Him your heart, and you will be blessed by what you receive from Him.

Thank You for Your love, Father. It sets me free from sin and makes me acceptable in Your sight. I rejoice in that![1]

July 26 Jealousy

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 18:1–12

Key Verse: James 3:16

Where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.

Both Paul and James almost invariably used the same companion adjective or noun when describing jealousy. Wherever there is jealousy, there is also strife. Jealousy breeds conflict. It incites anger and bitterness. It promotes emotional and physical hostility.

Are you envious over another’s success? Do you covet the looks or possessions of another? Do you feel as if you have been given a raw deal—while others seem to have a china closet full of silver spoons?

The emotional tangle of jealousy can be prevented when we understand God’s principle of contentment. Biblical contentment means we thank God that He has given us everything we need. Others may be promoted while we languish. Others may have great physical talents or appearance while we are plain and mediocre.

But God, our Creator and Provider, will give us all good things as we trust in Him. Our lives can be fully satisfying when we know our Father is not impartial or unjust, but gives to each the full measure of grace needed for a productive, joyful life.

Father God, free me from the grasping tentacles of jealousy. Help me realize that I have all I need to live a productive and joyful life.[1]

July 26 When God Says Go

Scripture reading: Genesis 12:1–9

Key verses: Genesis 12:2–3

I will make you a great nation;

I will bless you

And make your name great;

And you shall be a blessing.

I will bless those who bless you,

And I will curse him who curses you;

And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Hannah Whitall Smith once wrote, “Sight is not faith, and hearing is not faith, neither is feeling faith; but believing when we neither see, hear, nor feel is faith … Therefore, we must believe before we feel, and often against our feelings if we would honor God by our faith.”

As you read the account of Abram’s life, you realize he was a man of extreme faith. God asked him to do something many would find difficult, and that was to leave his family and friends and go to an unfamiliar land.

Yet God’s reassuring words in Genesis 12:2–3 lessened Abram’s fear.

Abram—or Abraham as he was later called by God—gave little thought to the fact that his name would be made great. The most important thing to him was the exercise of his faith through obedience.

When God calls you to move in a certain direction by faith, He will provide you reassurance. Your responsibility is to obey and follow Him. Abram left everything because he heard God say, “Go.” Are you willing to do the same? Pray that your response to the Lord is always one of faith, love, and obedience. That way you will never miss a single blessing.

God, give me the faith to obey and follow You when You say, “Go.” I don’t want to miss a single blessing You have for me![1]

Trump Campaign Posts Hard-Hitting New Video Ad: “The Squad – Meet the Leaders of the Democrat Party” — The Gateway Pundit

The Trump reelection campaign posted a new hard-hitting video Friday on ‘the Squad’, a group of four loud-mouth, radical freshman Democrat House members pulling the party to the far left. The video is titled, “The Squad – Meet the Leaders of the Democrat Party”.

The ad features President Trump at a recent campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina quoting the words of the four Squad members followed by video clips of the Squad using those words, illustrated with hipster graphics.

The video was posted to Trump’s YouTube channel with the statement, “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. It’s sad that they are the new leaders of the Democrat Party!”

The Squad is comprised of:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)

Omar is called out by Trump for pleading for compassion for ISIS recruits and for looking down on Americans as ignorant.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI):

Tlaib is cited by Trump for calling him a “motherf***er” at an event in 2019. Tlaib is also shown acting like a crazed lunatic while being thrown out of a 2016 Trump rally.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA):

Trump pointed out Pressley’s recent racist comments that people of the same skin color must think the same, saying that black and brown people must be black and brown “voices”.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY):

AOC is called out by Trump for saying illegal aliens or more American than Americans trying to secure our borders.

Video was also posted to Twitter by the campaign’s Trump War Room:

After Mueller’s Testimony and His Obvious Dementia Issues Rod Rosenstein Should Be Immediately Arrested and Charged with Running a Scam — The Gateway Pundit

On May 17, 2017 Deputy and Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed the document to appoint former FBI Chief Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate President Trump on collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign.

Rosenstein knew there was no collusion but ordered the Special Counsel anyway.  Rosenstein then approved controversial far left Democrat Andrew Weissmann to run the Special Counsel.  Rosenstein knew Rosenstein would run the operation because he knew Robert Mueller was suffering from severe dementia.

Weissmann then hired all far left Hillary supporting attorneys and went to work.  Weissmann indicted and jailed Trump associates on process crimes.  He refused to investigate the criminal actions of the Obama administration’s spying on candidate Trump.  Weissmann indicted Russian operatives and companies to appear legitimate.  Weissmann harassed Trump officials for two years in the hope that someone would fabricate a story so he could indict Trump.

Shortly after Rosenstein hijacked the Justice Department from Jeff Sessions and became the de facto Attorney General, he penned his first scope memo on May 17, 2017 authorizing Robert Mueller to investigate the so-called (non-existent) Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, authorized Mueller to investigate three areas: “i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; [and] iii) any other matters within the scope of [obstruction of justice laws].”

In the Spring of 2018, it was revealed that Rosenstein penned his second scope memo on August 2nd, 2017 and from what we have seen in the unredacted portions, he authorized Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate allegations that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort “committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials with respect to the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 election for President of the United States, in violation of United States law,” as well as allegations that Paul Manafort “committed a crime or crimes arising out of payments he received from the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych.”

It’s important to note that Rosenstein’s scope memo giving Mueller authorization to hunt down Manafort was 2 weeks after the FBI raided Manafort’s home looking for bank records.

To this day, that second ‘scope memo’ is redacted and only a handful of lawmakers have seen it.

Rosenstein, Weissmann and Mueller used the bogus Steele dossier from 2016 to 2019 knowing it was a bogus report.

Rosenstein withheld information that the FBI had opened an obstruction of justice probe o President Trump before the Mueller investigation.

Rod Rosenstein lied to President Trump and said he was not under investigation.

Rod Rosenstein plotted to oust President Trump by wearing a wire to a White House meeting.

And on Wednesday the country found out Rod Rosenstein and Andrew Weissmann used Robert Mueller in their plot to remove President Trump.

It was very clear from Mueller’s testimony that he is suffering from severe dementia.

Rosenstein and Weissman knew this.

That’s why Mueller was NEVER at the meeting with Trump lawyers.

Rosenstein and Andrew Weissmann knew Robert Mueller was suffering from severe dementia.  They used him anyway to con the American public that their nefarious plot to remove the president was legitimate.

Rod Rosenstein should be arrested immediately
