Please click the links below to Hosea 14:
This concluding chapter tells us the sins of how the Israelites worshipped idols and turned away from God but to turn to Assyria and Egypt was the reason of their downfall. What they needed to do was to repent and return to God. Then God would heal and restore them, caring for them as a father who has disciplined his children in love. Their lifestyle would be changed and would be beautiful and pure like the lily, like the prized cedar trees of Lebanon, the people would be strong and deeply rooted in God's Word.
Do we have all those lifestyle changes as described in this chapter to prove that we really have return to God?

What I got from Jesus today is: You downfall is because of you!
Today Jesus gives us a warning so that we won't follow the same route of downfall as those Israelites. Today a sister in our church shared in today's 9a.m. prayer meeting about how Jesus gave her a renewal through a prophetic message I spoke to her when I laid hands on her during the Eucharist last Sunday. She expected me to pray for her healing of her long time physical suffering. But, instead of praying for her healing I told her that God wanted her to return to her and totally rely on Him and not other ways. She shared to us this morning that she was about to seek for other help then God that day but my prophetic word gave her such a shock that she suddenly understand the cause of her suffering is not only physical but is because of her relationship with Jesus. And, she needed to not go to 'Assyria' or 'Egypt' for help but return to Jesus!
Wow, praise the Lord that what happened today to May is what it means in this chapter. Lots of time when we are burn-out, depressed, hopeless and want to quit is just because of ourselves!
Your downfall is just because of you! Got it?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to see the real reason for our downfall and that in any time we need to be with you. If we are not with you now, help us to confess our sins and return to you. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
