Amazed In Cyprus

6 May

Amazed In Cyprus…

The Jewish people, exiled from Israel because of judgment, were scattered all over the world. The Greek name for the dispersion of the Jewish people is diaspora, which means to scatter seed.

The Hebrew word for their dispersion is galut, which means the exile. Exile was a curse, yet the book of Acts reveals that it was through the Jewish exile, through the Jewish diaspora, that the Gospel was spread to the world.

God took the curse of the exile and turned it into the blessing of the diaspora. He used the diaspora to sow the seeds of the Gospel, which is what diaspora means.

It is the heart of God to take curses, and turn them around for good. He takes broken things and makes them whole – turning death into life, and sorrow into joy.

Are there things in your life you feel are a curse or you regret they ever happened? When you give them to God there’s no more regret. He will not just nullify that curse, He’ll turn it around for blessing.

You serve a God who has turned the diaspora, exile, and judgments into blessings of life and salvation.

Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126:5-6

Today, use the power of God to turn every bad thing, every problem, every conflict, every pain, every failure, every set back… into good, blessing, victory, and redemption.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
