Good morning Saints~
Thank you for sharing some of what Father is doing in your lives and hearts because of the challenge to read the Bible or fast something to start the year. I know that Father worked something special for each of you. Remember to continue praying for each other. Without the detail of prayer, anything we did would have been an exercise in futility. Otherwise our time of prayer and fasting really would have merely been a diet.
As I have spent the past several days working through Saul and David, the level of bloodshed has appeared greater this go round than times past. David’s nephew, Joab, the high ranking general in the duty of David, is a ruthless dude. He is fiercely loyal, cunning, unfalteringly obedient, and quite a warrior. Joab was more of a highlight for me, however, killing by others as well, was more dramatic and impacting. I have asked Father about the level of killing and think I come to some conclusions. See if you agree.
