The Best Guide…

No Comments

Psalms 105:37 “But he brought his people safely out of Egypt, loaded with silver and gold; there were no sick or feeble people among them.” (NLT)

If you are like most people, you probably love to travel. The truth is it’s even more enjoyable when someone comes along as a guide. A guide shows us the best of their region and this enhances our whole travel experience.

God’s word calls us “sojourners” on earth, which literally means temporary visitors.  So if we really want to enjoy our temporary visit, we need a guide.

Here is how it works!  God is our guide.  He shows us His best and enhances our trip with three essential items:

  1. SAFETY – “He brings us out safely”
  2. SUPPLY – “He loads us up with supplies”
  3. HEALTH – “In Him we’re not sick or feeble”

As we progress through our journey we will constantly need to access God’s treasure trove of SAFETY, SUPPLY and HEALTH that He has made available to us! Isn’t God good!

Don’t wait any longer! Declare the goodness of God over yourself, your family and friends… over every part of your journey. Proclaim God’s SAFETY, SUPPLY and HEALTH… its for you today.

A Superior Result…

Romans 14:17 “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and JOY in the Holy Spirit.” [NIV]

Everyone loves to eat and drink; it is not only a necessity but also an enjoyable part of life. Some people even hold competitions for fun to see who can eat the most in the quickest amount of time.

Now for the surprise… God says that there are greater things to strive for than our physical needs. Why? Because taking care of our needs is His job.  Our Father in heaven wants us to seek first His Kingdom.  As we do this He tells us about three things that will produce a superior result.

Just as we understand the benefit of eating and drinking to sustain our natural lives, God has provided the benefits of RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and JOY in the Holy Spirit for our life in God’s Kingdom.

What does this mean for us? Living in the kingdom of God means we get to partake of RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and JOY in the Holy Spirit. A miracle? You bet!

Best of all God wants to sustain us in His RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and JOY in the Holy Spirit everyday of our lives.  Say “YES” to kingdom living today!

1 John 1:5 “This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is LIGHT, pure LIGHT; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.” [MSG]

In the middle of the night it is amazing how fast the darkness disappears when we switch on the LIGHT. Darkness goes instantly! In the same way, when God is in a place, the devil cannot be there. LIGHT will always expel darkness. God is forever greater than everything else.

Three things we should always remember:

  1. God is LIGHT
  2. God is pure
  3. God has no darkness

Our redeemed lives are to be full of God’s LIGHT and purity. As we allow Him into every area of our lives… no darkness, through thought, word or deed, can exist there.  Why? Because the LIGHT of God expels them! If any darkness tries to re-enter it will be forced out by God’s presence.

Start today and let God’s LIGHT shine through every part of your life. There is no place too dark that He cannot shine brightly. Everywhere LIGHT exists, darkness cannot. So lets live in the LIGHT, abide in the LIGHT and share the LIGHT!

Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” [NKJV]

From prison rescues to dramatically saved lives, God wants to involve you in what is happening on earth!  Our verse today teaches us that there is an exciting life in the Spirit available to every follower of Jesus.

Let me explain.  For many years this verse was a mystery to me.  What does it mean to be meek? What does it mean to inherit the earth?

It’s so amazing! To be meek simply means to be submissive to, gracious towards and easily imposed upon by the Holy Spirit.  To inherit means to be given an involvement in what God is doing on earth. WOW!

Our verse literally reads, “Blessed are the easily imposed upon by the Holy Spirit for they shall be given an involvement in heavens plans on earth.” Astounding!

Why wait another day? God wants to take you into realms of Him that you have never experienced before.  Open up your heart to the Holy Spirit and learn to become involved in heaven’s plans on earth anytime… anywhere!

It’s Here Somewhere…

Mark 16:2 “And very early on the FIRST day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb.” [ESV]

Have you ever been searching for a treasured thing? You know it is buried under something, somewhere!  You become so excited when you finally locate it.

The people in our verse were on the hunt for something buried too! They were looking for Jesus. They were up very early, on the FIRST day of the week, before the sun had even risen… talk about enthusiastic! They were keen to locate Jesus so they PRIORITIZED Him… they found their treasure.

It’s true that there are dark places in everyone’s life. Places that we don’t want to let anyone into… not even Jesus. The truth is the freedom we search for is found when we allow Jesus to enter into and work in these areas.

It’s very easy to make this happen. All we need to do is PRIORITIZE Jesus. Make Him FIRST and put everything else second. There is always ample time to get Jesus involved… even if we have to search for him.

Right now schedule to meet with Jesus first; in the EARLY and even if it is still dark in your situation. Tell Jesus you want Him involved in every part of your life.   The same way they found Jesus in their situation you will too!
