He deprives the trusted ones of speech, and takes away the discernment of the elders. He pours contempt on princes, and disarms the mighty. He uncovers deep things out of darkness, and brings the shadow of death to light. He makes nations great, and destroys them; He enlarges nations, and guides them. He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness.

Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." This is desert. Acts 8:26 (NKJV)

Tradition
"Tradition may be defined as an extension of the franchise. Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. All democrats object to men being disqualified by the accident of birth; tradition objects to their being disqualified by the accident of death. Democracy tells us not to neglect a good man's opinion, even if he is our groom; tradition asks us not to neglect a good man's opinion, even if he is our father. I, at any rate, cannot separate the two ideas of democracy and tradition; it seems evident to me that they are the same idea. We will have the dead at our councils. The ancient Greeks voted by stones; these shall vote by tombstones. It is all quite regular and official, for most tombstones, like most ballot papers, are marked with a cross." Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton, Doubleday Image Book, page 48 © 1908, 1936 by Dodd, Mead & Company
      Lord, help me learn from past generations.

Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment." John 7:24 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help me judge with righteous judgment and not by appearances.

Arise therefore, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; for I have sent them." Acts 10:20 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help me go forward at your word, doubting nothng.

Then he said to them, "You know how unlawful it is for a Jewish man to keep company with or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Acts 10:28 (NKJV)
      Jesus, correct us by your Holy Spirit whenever we have labeled people as "unclean" and refrain from associating with them.

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. Acts 10:34-35 (NKJV)
      Father, help us repent of showing partiality.

If your sons have sinned against Him, He has cast them away for their transgression. Job 8:4 (NKJV)
      Lord, this is an awful supposition. Jesus, your disciples asked of the man born blind, "Who sinned, this man or his parents?" Help us repent of unrighteious judgment.

If you were pure and upright, surely now He would awake for you, and prosper your rightful dwelling place. Job 8:6 (NKJV)
      Lord, don't let me be taken in by a "prosperity gospel".

Behold, God will not cast away the blameless, Nor will He uphold the evildoers. Job 8:20 (NKJV)
      LORD, you cause your rain to fall on the just and the unjust. Help us leave judgment in your hand.

So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, To walk in their own counsels. "Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! Psalm 81:12-13 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help me repent of my stubbornness and walking by my own counsels rather than yours.

Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints. Psalm 116:15 (NKJV)
      Jean, rest in peace (8/25/2015)

A word received: You are in my care. Rest in my arms of love.

And when she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, "If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay." So she persuaded us. Acts 16:15 (NKJV)
      Jesus, help me accept all those you have made clean by your word and your blood.

Oh, remember that my life is a breath! My eye will never again see good. Job 7:7 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help us remember and aid the afflicted.

"Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul. Job 7:11 (NKJV)

He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4 (NKJV)
      Jesus, you are my refuge and I fly to you for comfort.

Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts. Psalm 125:4 (NKJV)

And He said, "Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father." John 6:65 (NKJV)
      Father, grant that more may come to Jesus.

From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. John 6:66 (NKJV)
      Jesus, so many have turned their backs on you and no longer walk with you.

Now it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda. There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed." Then he arose immediately. So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord. Acts 9:32-35 (NKJV)
      Jesus, please raise up apostolic ministry to those paralyzed by stroke or injury so that they may be set free and many believe.

"Teach me, and I will hold my tongue; Cause me to understand wherein I have erred. Job 6:24 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, teach me and show me my error.

Do not take me away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors, but evil is in their hearts. Psalm 28:3 (NKJV)
      LORD, guide my steps so that I do not sin.

Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at His holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy. Psalm 99:9 (NKJV)
      Holy Father, help me exalt and praise you day by day.
