Proverbs 29:w,4.7,12-14,18.

When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice,.When the wicked rule, the people groan.By justice a King gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down. The  righteous care about Justice for the poor but the wicked have no such concern. If a ruler listens to lies, all his officals  become wicked. The poor man and the appressor have this in common; the LORD gives sight t0 the eyes of both. If a King judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure. Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint , but blessed is he who keeps the law.Fear of man will prove to be a snare. but whosoever trusts  in the LORD is kept safe.Many seek an audience with a ruler, but it is from the LORD that man gets Justice: the righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright.

I was a father to the needy; I took up the case of the stranger. (Job 29:16)

I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction andknwe the anguish of my soul. (Psalm 31:7)

Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way;say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong,do not fear; your God will come,he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” (Isa35:3-4)

But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have trunback, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:32)

Brothers,if someone is caught in a sin,you who are spiritual should restore him gently.(Gal.6:1)

that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He cases his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matt.5:45)

He will judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted one with justce. (Ps.72:2)

The boy Samuel ministered before the LORD under Eli. In those days the word of the lord was rare; there were not man visions, (1Samuel 3:1)

“The days are coming,”declares the Sovereign LORD,”when I will send a famine through the land- not a famine through the land-not  a faine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the wrds of the LORD.(Amos 8:11)

Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do:17)

But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, an continues to do this,not forgeetting what he has heard,but doing it – he will be blessed in what he does.(James 1:25)

Cry (with the throat.) aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgressions, and the house of Jacob ther sins.

The Holy Spirit and Going On with God

Day By Day By Grace
Bob Hoekstra

Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? (Galatians 3:2-3)
The work of the Holy Spirit is required for people to start out with God through new birth and justification. The Holy Spirit must also be at work in believers if they are to go on with God in growth and sanctification.

The opening portion of our present Scripture passage uses a question to address our starting out with God. “Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” The answer to this question is obvious. No one could ever have the Spirit of God come to indwell them on the basis of their performance before God’s law. Only the “hearing of faith” could ever cause that. The Holy Spirit came to live in us when we heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and believed in Him. At that time, our sins were forgiven, we were justified (declared not guilty, righteous in God’s sight), and we were born again by the Spirit. All of this marked our beginning with God. All of this involved the work of the Holy Spirit on our behalf.

The closing words of the passage use two additional questions to apply this issue of the Spirit’s work to our going on with God. “Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?” We who are the children of God began with Him “in the Spirit.” Now, it would be spiritually senseless to think that we could progress with God “by the flesh.” Surely, we agree with the Lord that we could not produce our own spiritual birth into His family. We had to be “born of the Spirit” (John 3:6). Certainly, we want to agree with God that we cannot manufacture our own spiritual growth, that is, be “made perfect by the flesh.”

The Lord desires that we mature and develop in this new life in Christ. Such growth in Christ is a spiritual matter. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh.” The resources that we have all received from our earthly parents are of the flesh. These natural capabilities cannot develop us spiritually. The perfecting process (becoming increasingly like the Lord Jesus Christ) necessitates the Holy Spirit’s working in us. Remember, the means God used to start us out with Him (to justify us) are the means He uses to grow us up in Him (to sanctify us).

O Holy Father, I humbly admit that I have foolishly thought, at times, that I could produce godliness in myself through my own best efforts. Lord, I see that I need Your Spirit as much for spiritual growth as I did for spiritual birth. As I seek You through prayer and Your word, please take me on with You in growth and sanctification by the work of Your Holy Spirit, through Christ, I pray, Amen.

Daily Promises
Blue Letter Bible
February 23, 2016
But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:9)
As Christians, we have the tremendous privilege to be called “God’s own possession.” Although we were once lost with no identity as a people, we have come to know the excellent mercies of God. He has brought us together as a holy nation, set apart for His glory. For we certainly have become property of the almighty King, that we may proclaim His goodness and righteousness to all people.

Proverbs 22: 1-5

A Good name is rather to be hosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

   The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.     Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world, both low and high, rich and poor alike:

     A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.   Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.

   By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.   Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.   For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
