plumb line

This is what the he showed me: The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in his hand.
And the Lord asked me, "What do you see Amos?"
"A plumb line" I replied.
Then the Lord said, "Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer." Amos 7:7-8

The scripture above was part of my morning reading. I use plumb-lines to teach drawing ... but wanted to have a clear understanding of what the prophet Amos was teaching. I looked up the definition of a "plumb line" ... it is a tool used to determine a truly vertical line. A plumb line is used to determine the straightness of a wall.

Today I have been reflecting on me, am I in correct alignment.
It has been my prayer that the Lord would reveal to me where I am off line. I have been so focused for so long on one specific thing - that I have lost sight of all the other amazing blessings that have been showered all around me. It is my prayer that the Lord will work on me, so that I may have to correct vertical alignment.

the word from Joel was moving as well ... Stir it Up

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands"(2 Timothy 1:6, NKJ)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria Do you ever feel like you’ve “lost your fire or enthusiasm?” We all have times when we feel overwhelmed by the pressures of life, but that’s when you need to stir up what God has placed on the inside of you. Remember, there are no disadvantages with our God. You have everything you need to succeed. No weapon formed against you is ever going to prosper; you just have to stir up the gift inside. How do you stir it up? By speaking God’s truth and meditating on His word.

Start right now by simply declaring, “I am going to see God’s favor in a greater way. New doors are going to begin to open for me. Supernatural opportunities are coming my way. God is setting up divine connections for me. I’m always at the right place at the right time. I am going to overcome every obstacle and defeat every enemy. I’m going to see every dream, every desire that God has placed in my heart come to pass, in Jesus’ name!”

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father in heaven, thank You for the dreams, desires, and gifts You’ve placed on the inside of me. I choose to stir up those gifts and declare what You say about me. Have Your way in my heart today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
