Morning Prayer Summary for Monday, September 9, 2019

Scripture Focus…

The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. (2) He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. (3) He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him—not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake. (4) Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me. (5) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over. (6) Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place. (Psalms 23:1–6 AMPC)

First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men. (2) For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. (8) I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands.
(1 Timothy 2:1–2, 8 AMPC)


The following excerpt is taken from Growing Up Spiritually by Kenneth E Hagin:

The Right Diet

Ephesians 5:1–2
1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

I like another translation which reads, “Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children.” What’s it talking about when it says to follow God? To imitate God?

Remember, God is Love. In the First Epistle of John, which I wanted you to stay in for awhile, John says in effect that if you walk in love, then you walk in God, and God is in you and you’re in God, because God is love.

Imitate God in love. “God so loved the world” (John 3:16). He loved us while we were yet sinners. Well, imitate Him in that. It’s easy to love those who love you. Anybody can do that. But we’re supposed to do like God – to imitate Him in love – and love the unlovely, love the unlovable, love our enemies.

You can’t do that unless you have the love of God in you. And you’ll not do it unless you grow in love.

When you’re sensitive and easily hurt, it doesn’t take enemies outside the Body of Christ, but just a believer, a brother in the Lord, to do something that doesn’t amount to a hill of beans and you’re so easily hurt you’re almost ready to cut his head off.

Be imitators of God walking in love. This is our privilege. This is where we should and could live. We have this New Covenant law to govern us as a Church:

John 13:34-35
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Fruit of the Human Spirit

Love is the first fruit of the human spirit when you are born again. It’s not the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The translators were entirely wrong in putting a capital “S” in Galatians 5:22. It refers to the human spirit.

Jesus said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches” (John 15:5).

Where does the fruit grow? On the branches.

Who are the branches? The Holy Spirit?

No. We are.

This fruit of the spirit (Gal. 5:22) is fruit that grows in your life because of the life of Christ within.

How are you going to know and tell that you are saved?

“We know that  we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren” (1 John 3:14).

This is the fruit of the recreated, born again human spirit (Gal. 5:22-23). (You can take each fruit of the spirit and prove by the Bible that if you’re saved you have it. For instance, one is peace. Romans 5:1 says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”)

If you are born again, this love is in you. You may not be practicing it. But it’s in your inward man, your spirit.

If you’re ever going to grow and develop out of the babyhood state, you will have to learn to feed this love nature on the Word of God and exercise this love nature in the arena of life. Then you will grow in love.

You’ll not do it any other way. You could sit around all day and pray, “God, give me love. God, help me love my brother. God, help me love the world,” and it wouldn’t do any more good than to twiddle your thumbs and say, “Twinkle, twinkle, little star; How I wonder what you are.”

You must recognize that the Bible teaches that because you are born of God, you are born of love; that you are made a partaker of the divine nature, God’s nature which is love; and that you have it – a measure of it, at least. Then as you get ready to feed that love nature of the Word of God and put it into practice, you will begin spiritual development and growth. It won’t happen until then.

Love is absolutely to govern the heart life of the Church.
