Take Your Words And Return To The Lord

Saturday October 19, 2013

Hosea 14:2 says to “Take words with you and return to the LORD”. What are your words? Return to the LORD, to your first love, to your commitment. Be where you are supposed to be. The prodigal son went away from the father, but after wasting his life, his words were, “I will go to my father’s house as a servant.” The father received him will celebration, blessing him with authority and peace. Come back to the Father. Spend time with Him. Your words carry the power of life and death. Take your praise and offerings to the LORD and experience a party in His house. The woman with the issue of blood used her words: “If I can but touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole”, and she received her healing. At the beginning of this passage, it says, “A certain woman”, but after Jesus knew that power went out of Him, He called her, “Daughter”. When you touch God and release your faith, you receive. Jacob said to the angel of the LORD, “I won’t go until I get the blessing”. Samson missed it by being in the wrong place. He knew that God had given him vision, power, and strength for a purpose. After he missed it, his hair grew again, and he used his words to return to the LORD: “LORD, remember me one more time”, and he killed more Philistines in his death than in his life. The thief on the one side of Jesus took his words to the LORD, and Jesus told him that today he would be with Him in paradise. Take your words to the LORD. He restores you. Today.
