Walk in God’s Strength

In Daniel 11:32 we are told that: “the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (KJV). This is great news but sometimes we get tired and plain worn out from our busyness and efforts. Often because we try to do things our way; or is that just me?

But be encouraged as the word says that: “they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isa 40:31). In this verse, to wait means to wait with patient hope and expectation.

In Isaiah 41:10 we are told that we should not fear as our God will strengthen us, help us and uphold us. We don’t need to fear as God is the strength of our lives (Ps 27:1). “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil 4:13). Don’t let satan steal your joy as: “the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Neh 8:10b).

So, just cast all your cares on him today because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). He is your strength, do things his way. He will never leave you nor forsake you (Heb 13:5).

Have a strong day in him.

Conversation with God.

  “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up” (Ps 5:3; KJV). Here’s the best way to start your day; this verse perfectly illustrates that prayer is a two-way conversation with God. King David directs his prayer to God and looks up, or waits to hear from God’s heart. You don’t have to follow any set rules for prayer, and you don’t need to try and pray like some other person that you admire. God just wants us to pray from our heart in faith (Mark 11:24) and be ourselves; that simple. We know that Jesus spent a lot of time in prayer, and if it was important for him, then how much more so for us. We also learn from John 16:23 that we should pray to God the Father in Jesus name; and if we pray according to God's will then we will receive what we ask for (1 John 5:14,15). There are many positive results from developing a prayer life, the main one being that we will get to know God better and we will therefore become more like him. 


How's Your Steering?

How’s your steering? In chapter 1 and verse 5 of the book of Proverbs, a part of the Old Testament of the Bible, it is written: “The wise also will hear and increase in learning, and the person of understanding will acquire skill and attain to sound counsel [so that he may be able to steer his course rightly]” (AMP).

We need to make wise decisions in order to drive down the right road of life. That’s why it’s so important to read at least something from Proverbs every day. Prov. 2:4 says to search for wisdom; that indicates that we have to put some effort onto it.   Prov. 9:11 says that wisdom will cause us to enjoy many days and a long-life span. Prov. 8:35 says that if we find wisdom we will find life and favor from God.

There are many more benefits of wisdom described in the book of Proverbs; try underlining them in your Bible, meditate on them and see yourself develop in this area.

Gods wisdom will give you power steering.

The Resolve of Christ

The high priest and elders tried hard to find a reason to condemn Jesus to death but could not. (Matt 26: 57-62) Finally, the high priest asked Jesus if he was the Christ, the Son of God. I was looking at Jesus’ reply the other day and it struck me like never before: "Thou hast said: nevertheless, I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven" (Matt 26:64; KJV).

Jesus was so confident in his Father and Jesus knew who he (Jesus) was and where we was going; He had only one goal that of complete obedience to the Father. He knew that his reply to the high priest would mean certain death but he spoke the truth. How often God prompts us to share the Gospel with another but because of busyness, fear of rejection or embarrassment we ignore God’s prompting. What would have happened if Jesus had not had the resolve he did and had not given the reply he did?

I believe that just like Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, God gives us divine appointments to share Christ with people (Acts 8:26-39). God even says he will give us the words to say (Luke 21:15) and the Holy Spirit sets up those divine appointments (Prov 3:5-6) All we have to do is show up and do our part; be obedient. “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance” (Luke 15:7). 

Let’s do it, it’s a spiritual rush. Share this.


A Heavenly Perspective

 “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; if by any means I may attain unto the resurrection of the dead” (Phil 3:10-11; KJV).

Theses verses show Paul’s heart, his life motivation. Paul’s sole motivation was to know Christ; not to know about him but to know him. Paul desired to be like Christ in dying to self and sin and living to eternal life. He counted it gain to suffer for Christ as this reflected his complete identification with Jesus.

In an earlier verse in Philippians Chapter 3 (V8), Paul looked back at his earlier life without Jesus and counted it as loss, rubbish; compared to knowing Christ in an intimate, dynamic and life changing relationship. The word rubbish can be translated dung, showing how emphatic Paul was in making his point.

Paul went on to say that he didn’t look back but pressed on to follow the call of Jesus, (v12-13) to come closer and higher in relationship with him (Jesus) and to experience the power of Christ’s resurrection (v10). Paul had a heavenly or eternal perspective while he ministered powerfully and effectively on this earth in the anointing of God. Wow, that’s what I want. Let’s press in but remember not to get condemned as Paul said, when he wrote this epistle, that he had not arrived (v13) but was determined to press in (14).
