This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for some good purpose, but what I do with this day is important because I have exchanged one day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever, and I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it…
STAND ON THE WORD
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
WALK IT OUT
1. Remember you were made in the image of God, therefore your life should be a reflection of Him in word and deed.
2. God expects each of us to be productive and good stewards of all he has provided for each of us.
3. The directions to be fruitful, multiply, replenish and subdue was given to be fulfilled between a man and a woman.
Stand On The Word
1 John 2:1-6
1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Walk It Out
1. Your life should prove you are a Christian in word and deed.
2. You should be a reflection of your heavenly Father. Others should see Him in you!
3. Live a holy and separated life unto the Lord. Repent quickly if you mess up, and give God thanks for His mercy and grace through the sacrifice of Jesus.
The day is almost over and you may be waiting on your answer still, but don’t give in to fear, doubt, and frustration. Go and pray some more! What you need God’s got it! Seek Him!
Stand On The Word
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Jude 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Walk It Out
1. Listen and obey the preached word at your local assembly.
2. Study and read your bible.
3. Pray in the Spirit.
You may not be able to reach everyone, but you can reach someone.
You may not be able to help everybody, but you can help somebody.
You may not be able to speak to the crowds, but you can witness to the one.
You might not be able to show everybody the way, but you can show somebody.
You could wait until tomorrow, but why not do it today?
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
The joy of the Lord is my strength! Sorrow abounds all around us as we or our loved ones deal with stress, disappointments, illness, and loss, yet still we can find joy in the presence of the Lord! When darkness tries to overtake me I look to the hills from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord! Your help comes from the Lord too! I might have to cry sometimes, but I hold fast to God’s promise that one day He will wipe away every tear! I may not always understand “why”, but I’m thankful for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. The one who can keep me and you through it all, the great I am, is always with us even when we might feel alone and forsaken. God said He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we must believe this as we walk in faith through the storms of life. I may feel sadness try to overtake me unawares, but in the presence of my Lord it must flee! The joy of the Lord is my strength! I will trust and abide in Him!!
