Your Time for Revelation…

Nehemiah 8:18 ” Ezra read from the Book of The Revelation of God each day, from the first to the last day…” [MSG]

As we get hungry our body starts yearning food. The longer we ignore this feeling the more our body craves nourishment. Some people may get the shakes; others get a little short in their temper. The fact is our bodies need food.

In Nehemiah 8 we see the priest Ezra spiritually feeding the people of God. He is distributing revelation from God’s Word to all the hungry masses. He does it faithfully from the first day to the last. This shows us that it takes time to receive revelation from God’s Word. But, once received, we have solid steps built into our future!

In our busy culture we don’t always stop long enough to fully hunger for revelation from God. We often push down the desire that we have for it. The plain truth is that we need to make time each day to get deeper into God’s Word.

So, why not set aside a little extra time over the next 7 days just to hunger for revelation from His Word. Do it every day from the first day to the last. As you are faithful in this you will be surprised at how much revelation and help you will receive from God.

A New Start…

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God…”

Happy New to you and your family!

Our year has ended and we have just begun 2012 together. Most people happily move forward putting the old year behind. Others find it a little more difficult. God wants us to keep a forward focus and continually let go of the past just like the Apostle Paul did.

You see the key to freedom is not letting your yesterday affect your today! God’s mercy is new every morning. So, no matter what happened last year in 2012, we can find a fresh place to begin.

Here is how it works: The first words of the Bible say, “In the beginning God…” When we give God priority and ownership in the beginning we can be assured He will cause us to reach our full potential – no matter how many twists and turns we face on our journey.

Begin 2012 with God as your priority and keep Him there because Jesus has already gone into 2012 to prepare the way for you! God wants to bring to pass His promises for our lives over the coming year.

So let’s begin with Jesus, stay with Jesus and end with Jesus. He is faithful to keep His word!

No Risk Offer…

1 Corinthians 3:11 “For no one can lay any FOUNDATION other than the one already laid, which is JESUS Christ.” [NIV]

Every building has FOUNDATIONS designed to carry specific loads. There is only one sure FOUNDATION that can carry the load of you and your family… Jesus is this FOUNDATION. He can support everything… you, your calling and your destiny.

He will take the maximum load that you can put on Him at any time. No matter what burden, no matter what sorrow, no matter what fear… He can carry it for you.

The truth is there is only one FOUNDATION suitable for us to build upon. It is a FOUNDATION that will not crack and will never crumble. This FOUNDATION is JESUS Christ. JESUS is a FOUNDATION that we don’t have to wait to be laid; it is completely ready to build upon right now. Don’t ever build on other FOUNDATIONS like people, jobs or financial security because they will not hold us securely and faithfully… only Jesus can do this for us.

No risk now, no risk later… JESUS is more than able to carry the load and burdens of your life. Take any weights from your life and lay them upon the FOUNDATION that is JESUS Christ. He will carry them for you – it’s what JESUS does!!!
