TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
Scripture: Psalm 65:11, 1 Chronicles 17:25-27, Deuteronomy 4:24-40

We have chosen to sow Psalm 65:11 into our lives this year and water it until it brings forth fruit. It says, “You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.” The Supreme Court’s decision on marriage is far from good. If the church responds in the Spirit, it could birth a great goodness! Many times we find ourselves with enemies both personally and corporately whose actions inevitably bring devastation and destruction to the land. When a land’s cup of iniquity fills, judgment becomes necessary to purge it. The goodness of the Lord is sometimes manifested in His judgment on those who have given themselves to evil. Goodness for the land means judgment on the evil. The same Hebrew word that is used for “goodness” in Psalm 65:11 also appears in 1 Chronicles 17:26, where King David said, “And now, Lord, You are God, and have promised this goodness to Your servant.” He was referring to the covenant of Sure Mercy that Jesus bought and paid for in Acts 13:32-34 and has given the church. The covenant of Sure Mercy promises that God will cut off all of our enemies. It is God’s great goodness to you and I to give us a covenant where we can ask Him to cut off an unrelenting enemy that is bringing destruction to us personally or to our nation. If we are pricked in our hearts with the evil coming out of DC, our first obligation is to ask God to cut off the perpetrators. “Lord I invoke the covenant of Sure Mercy on the USA, stay your Hand of judgment on the nation and visit the perpetrators in Washington DC. Reward all five justices according to their works!”
