7 – The Spirit of God
8 – New Beginnings

Psalm 7:8 (NKJV) The LORD shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.


Psalm 7:11-14 (NKJV) God is a just judge, and God is angry with the wicked every day.  If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready.  He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.  Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.

The enemy lies constantly to cover the evil that they are doing. They project the wrong that they are doing on you. The lies begin if you are close enough to them that they can bait and switch. Then they spread the lies repeatedly, not knowing what they sow they will reap. If you repent and turn from such wickedness, God’s mercies will be new every morning.

Hebrews 4:15-16 (NKJV) For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

God is the God of new beginnings, so you are not without hope. God loves to take the people the world has discounted and consider worthless and give them His truth. Samuel was sent to the house of Jesse of Bethlehem with a bottle of anointing oil, looking for the next king. The Lord told Samuel to anoint whom He told him to anoint for the future king. Indeed, one of David’s brothers should have been chosen for this position according to the world’s standards. But God chose David, who was in the fields covered in dirt, tending the sheep.

Declaration: The Lord is my redeemer, and there are new beginnings for me.  I will always turn to Him in good times and bad because He directs my path.
