Mission minded: Go and compel them to come!!

Morning Meditation

20180713_065422_0001

Every sinner should read Psalm 51: 1-19, and cry out to God like David did when he sinned! Confession is good for the soul!! Through Christ we find mercy and grace when we mess up.  What’s that you say, you are not a sinner? So, why does the bible declare that all have sinned and fallen short of His glory? Sin free, still you insist that this is true. Sorry my friend to tell you but you are a liar, and the truth is not in you! Oh wait, lieing is a sin too. Please don’t be mad that I tell you the truth.  Just REPENT!!! May you be blessed on today my friend. Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Please share your thoughts on this topic in the comments below. I look forward to hearing from you! Have an AMAZING day!!!

Watch, Pray, and Listen!

In the midst of all that is going on, we the called of Christ, should not panic or fret. Let us get quiet before our King and listen. Let us prepare ourselves that we might be able to come before His presence without fear. Let us show the love of Christ to those round about us in the midst of diverse trials and tribulations.  Let us become more diligent in proclaiming the gospel while there is yet time.

Watch AND pray. All that is happening was already foretold in the Bible. Do not be surprised. Do not be dismayed. Even in death, heaven is our reward. Do not fret as them who have no hope, because our hope is in the Lord!!  Look up in anticipation, because our redemption draws near!

Read AND study.  We are instructed to hide the word in our hearts that we might not sin against God. The Holy Spirit will bring to our remembrance the word that we have digested in our private time as we need it, for our own benefit and to help us witness and assist those around us. We must be more vigilant and missioned minded than ever before if we are to accomplish the great task set before us!

Watch AND listen. Warnings go out across pulpits continuously through the preached Word, but it’s up to us to truly listen and obey God’s instructions.  It’s more than singing in the choir, sitting in the pew, or preaching from the pulpit.  We must obey the Word of God! We must believe what we hear, and do what He instructs.

Hear AND obey. The word will lead and guide your footsteps, so that you will not go astray if you simply follow the instructions. He will personally show you things to come. God reveals things to those who seek Him, so that current events are not a surprise. Get quiet before the Lord.  Pray.  Listen.  God will always provide an answer.  He will always provide a way of escape.  Having a form of godliness is NOT enough in this day and time! Pray without ceasing!! The alarm has sounded long ago, and it is way past time to awake out of sleep. Hear AND obey!!

 

 

Change Your Perspective

What do you see?  Failure. Defeat. Hopelessness. Insignificance. Weakness.  If so, change your perspective!  Stop focusing on your immediate need, want, challenge, or what you think is the solution to your problem, so that you can see what God desires to show you in the midst of your circumstance. God desires to reveal himself to you exactly where you are on today. You just have to pay attention!!  Stop doing things your way, even if you think it is good, and listen to what God is trying to tell you and show you for your ministry and your life right now.  It may appear all is lost, that you are forgotten, or you have gone too far down the wrong road, but I encourage you to hold fast and see the salvation of the Lord. Look again!!

Walk It Out…

Stop and take a moment to meditate on this devotional and more importantly the mighty Word of God. How does this apply to you on today? What are you currently believing God for in your life? What do you need to let go of or stop doing immediately? What do you need to begin doing? Pray and listen. Now step out in faith and go forth in Jesus name!
