Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Brothers in Christ, this monthly devotional is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him. Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.

IRON MAN OIKODOME BOX TOP 043 Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me (Micah 7:7 NKJV). Look, Wait, He Hears Bros Micah after reminding Israel and Judah that everyone was evil, corrupt, wicked, and could not be trusted that the only One to look to was the Lord, they should have not ever stopped looking to Him. He was their answer, turn to God and turn away from your sins, which the Lord will forgive and renew their nation according to His covenant- His Word. Micah was telling them of Gods promise of Final Salvation, there was still hope for them even in the midst of their sin God wanted them to turn back to Him to restore the remnant. He was willing to take them back no matter what if they would just turn back from their wicked sinful ways and look to Him instead of looking only for what they could get and take from others through deceitfulness, wickedness, and corruption. Gods faithfulness, Gods mercy, and Gods grace in spite of what they had become and with so many chances to repent. I am sure there have been times even we in our lives when we might have strayed, that we might have looked elsewhere for help first, then looked to the Lord. Sure we never meant to do that intentionally on purpose but it does seem to be that way sometimes when all else fails then we turn to God for help after the fact But why is the Lord the last resource to go to for help, forgiveness of sin, and in prayer, and seeking His Word for wisdom and counsel? Bros that ought not to be Lord help us to get our priorities in order if they are out of whack. We need Your help and Your perfect Will, You God are the only One we want to be seeking and looking to, for Your forgiveness of our sins, Your desired will for our lives, Your blessing in our lives, and provision for all our needs. Behold, as the eyes of servants [look] to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes [look] to the LORD our God, Until He has mercy on us (Psalms 123:2 NKJV). After we Look to the Lord and call on Him we Wait on Him for His answer in His perfect timing, His direction, His leading and this is always the hardest thing for us to do. There are many instances of folks waiting on the Lord in the Bible and saying how long Lord??? But who else do we need to trust and wait on but our mighty and awesome God. He knows what is best in our situation and He knows the purpose for which he allowed our situation and He knows and He is waiting for us to Look to Him, to return to Him if we have strayed to receive His forgiveness, mercy, and grace abundantly in our lives. We look to Lord and we wait on the Lord! Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD (Psalms 27:14 NKJV)! But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31 NKJV). He will hear you! The Lord knows we have need and when we turn to Him, repent from our sins & obey Him and walk in obedience He hears our prayers. I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, [and] hear my speech (Psalms 17:6 NKJV). The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16 NKJV). Bros Look to the Lord, Wait for God & and He will hear us- amen! Agape,
