3 DAYS IN ECCLESIASTES 5, PART 3
[Prelude to this day’s Daily Verses]:
IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD WHENEVER ANYONE EATS, DRINKS, AND ENJOYS ALL HIS EFFORTS.
•  I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and enjoy the good life. It is also the gift of God whenever anyone eats, drinks, and enjoys all his efforts. (Ecclesiastes 3: 12-13)
•  All that my eyes desired, I did not deny them. I did not refuse myself any pleasure, for I took pleasure in all my struggles. This was my reward for all my struggles. (Ecclesiastes 2: 10)
•  So I commended enjoyment because there is nothing better for man under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy himself, for this will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 8: 15)

3 DAYS IN ECCLESIASTES 5, PART 2
[Prelude to this day’s Daily Verses]:
WHEN YOU PRAY, DON’T BABBLE LIKE THE IDOLATERS, SINCE THEY IMAGINE THEY’LL BE HEARD FOR THEIR MANY WORDS.
•  For when there are many words, they increase futility. What is the advantage for man? When there are many words, sin is unavoidable, but the one who controls his lips is wise. (Ecclesiastes 6: 11; Proverbs 10: 9)
•  When you pray, don’t babble like the idolaters, since they imagine they’ll be heard for their many words. I tell you that on the day of judgment people will have to account for every careless word they speak. (Matthew 6: 7; 12: 36)
•  “The person thinks because of how they pray, what they pray, or how many words they use that God will be favorable toward them. Some people think they must pray in King James language for God to actually listen and answer. Others think they have to be casual and refer to God as ‘Daddy’ to be heard. What you say or how you say it is not the issue. The issue is your heart. But we so often think our heavenly Father is like earthly parents who can be asked at the right time or in the right way and we can get the answer we want…. The answer to your prayer does not depend on what you say, how you ask it, how many words you use, or even the formality or casualness of your words. Rather, it depends on a heavenly Father who knows what is best for you. We have nothing to barter with or to offer God. We just ask with humble hearts, and we trust that how He answers is best.” (Akin, D.L., & Akin, J. (2016). Exalting Jesus in Ecclesiastes. Holman Reference.)

3 DAYS IN ECCLESIASTES 5, PART 1
[Prelude to this day’s Daily Verses]:
TO SAY “I DON’T THINK GOD CARES HOW WE WORSHIP HIM” SAYS WE KNOW BETTER THAN HE DOES. NO, WE DON’T.
•  [Yehovah:] “You must be careful to do everything I command you; do not add anything to it or take anything away from it.” (Deuteronomy 12: 32)
•  Be careful that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit based on human tradition, based on the elemental forces of the world, and not based on Christ. (Colossians 2: 8)
•  [Messiah:] “These people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. They worship Me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commands of men.” (Mark 7: 6–7)
•  [Yehovah:] “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways. For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55: 8–9)
•  [Yehovah:] “Do not learn the way of the nations, for the customs of the peoples are worthless. Someone cuts down a tree from the forest; it is worked by the hands of a craftsman with a chisel. He decorates it with silver and gold. It is fastened with hammer and nails, so it won’t totter.” (Jeremiah 10: 2–4)

•  “These are the things you must do: Speak truth to one another; make true and sound decisions within your gates. Do not plot evil in your hearts against your neighbor, and do not love perjury, for I hate all this” — this is Yehovah’s declaration. (Zechariah 8: 16–17)
•  “If you really change your ways and your actions; if you act justly toward one another; if you no longer oppress the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow and no longer shed innocent blood in this place or follow other gods, bringing harm on yourselves, I will allow you to live in this place, the land I gave to your ancestors long ago and forever.” (Jeremiah 7: 5–7)


21 JAN 2022
2 DAYS IN ZECHARIAH 7, PART 1
[Prelude to this day’s Daily Verses]:
THE FAST GOD CHOOSES: SHARE BREAD WITH THE HUNGRY, BRING THE POOR AND HOMELESS INTO YOUR HOME, CLOTHE THE NAKED.
•  Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory. (1 Corinthians 10: 31)
•  [God’s people:] “Why have we fasted, but You have not seen? We have denied ourselves, but You haven’t noticed!” [Yehovah:] “Look, you do as you please on the day of your fast, and oppress all your workers. You fast with contention and strife to strike viciously with your fist. You cannot fast as you do today, hoping to make your voice heard on high. Will the fast I choose be like this: A day for a person to deny himself, to bow his head like a reed, and to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Will you call this a fast and a day acceptable to Yehovah? Isn’t the fast I choose: To break the chains of wickedness, to untie the ropes of the yoke, to set the oppressed free, and to tear off every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, to bring the poor and homeless into your house, to clothe the naked when you see him, and not to ignore your own flesh and blood?” (Isaiah 58: 3–7)

•  [Yehovah to Abraham:] “Abraham is to become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through him.” (Genesis 18: 18)
•  Now the Scripture saw in advance that God would justify the Gentiles by faith and told the good news ahead of time to Abraham, saying, “All the nations will be blessed through you.” (Galatians 3: 8)

I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM. I WILL BLESS YOU AND MULTIPLY YOUR OFFSPRING BECAUSE OF MY SERVANT ABRAHAM.
