Mark of Love
Love came down https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LNxDzhoey8
Thank you Jesus for what you did on the cross for the lost and weary world. Your love never ends and always preserves us in our every season and trials. Thank you for giving us love when we need it the most. Your always enough and always on time!
Isaiah 61:3“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion"- the Lord sets and places a space in our hearts and his heart, that bridges our tears and our soul. That bridge is Christ Jesus and it is all orchestrated by the Holy Spirit, like a dove that leads the hearts to where peace is.
Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. " to give unto them beauty for ashes" -the Lord takes our sin and turns it to ashes. Out of the ashes our hearts are refined by fire and purified by water. A process of great care and that is why it is in the hands of our creator and not man. That beauty is an ordiment from the Lord that he places on us.
Ezekeil 44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that causeth sweat. "the oil of joy for mourning" -the oil of gladness and joy that way applied on those who grieved throughout the Old testament. A comforting gesture to the weary and also reminds us of the women who annionted Christ's feet during his ministry. Thank you Jesus for anointing us.
Psalm 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness" - The Lord gives us a spritual gladness and thanksgiving that covers and cloths our heart during times of weariness and when burdens are heavy. He changes things when are hope is weary. We are strong in our weakness because his love shields us when we seek him. Lord keep that fire burning within us. Your loves lifts us!!
Isaiah 10:16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire. "that they might be called trees of righteousness"- by the rivers of waters the trees are nourished and preserved. The trees that are planted in the presence of the river bare fruit and leaves that heal, bless, and deliver the hungry and the heavy hearted. The waters give life that keeps the field of our hearts hydrated in a parched dessert land.
Jeremiah 17:8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified" -the panting of seeds is from the great planter and the vineyard keeper waters and blesses those seeds.
The root of all blessings is not man but the Lord our creator. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is that fullness of love that truly changes us to a new man. Rooted in Christ and in truth. All for his glory and he certainly deserves the praise. The battle to steal worship is always ongoing. I declare right here and now that the only one who has my praise and worship is The King of Kings and Lord of Lords!! He is faithful and true!!

300 verses on the parable of the seed https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/search.php?hs=1&q=parable+of+the+seed
Matthew 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
