The Scripture for today may be found in the book of Isaiah chapter 6 verses 1 and 2:

Heaven Is God’s Throne

66 Thus says the Lord,

“Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool.
Where then is a house you could build for Me?
And where is a place that [a]I may rest?
“For My hand made all these things,
Thus all these things came into being,” declares the Lord.
“But to this one I will look,
To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.

As we come before the LORD this morning let’s be prayerful, mindful, admitting all to Him whatsoever we may find within ourselves to confess. Now at this time, I would caution you against the wiles of the devil for he would seek to convince you that anything you’ve done can’t be all that bad; after all you’re a Christian.

The devil loves to see a Christian fall. He relishes every opportunity to accuse the brethren.

So when you come before the LORD let your attitude be humble. Ask Him to help you to see those things you may have said or done no matter how slight that may have offended a brother or sister. Then go and make amends. Say you are sorry. Ask forgiveness. Show your remorse to them and to God Almighty.

Then when the devil attacks you with regards to it you can tell him, “You are a liar. I trust God’s word which says, “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”1 John 1:9

And remember too, Peter’s admonition in 1 Peter 3:8-12

[d]To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but [e]giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. 10 For,

The one who desires life, to love and see good days,
Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.
11 He must turn away from evil and do good;
He must seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
And His ears attend to their prayer,
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
