"The Living Bible"

"Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men." 2 Corinthians 3:2

I am sure that when you read the title of this morning's devotional, you thought I was going to be talking about one of the modern day translations of the Bible. I am not. I am going to talk about our lives- those who are believers, followers of Christ, Christians.

The verse above says that our lives are like a Bible that all men can read. How do they "read" our lives? They read it through the things we say, our actions, our attitudes, the way we respond in situations, by our character, through the way we conduct ourselves and by the way we love others. If we are following Christ, then our lives should be imitating Him- what He does and how He does it. If we are doers of God's word and not hearers only, then our conduct should line up with its teachings. The scriptures should be coming alive in our lives so that the meaning of the scripture is easily understood because they see its meaning plainly through our conduct.

So what does your life say? What do others read from it? Does it paint a confusing picture hard to understand? Is it a picture of peace and joy? Does your life speak of defeat and misery? Does it speak of victory? If your life is the only "Bible" that those around you have to "read", then what are they reading? Are they reading enough to get an understanding of the love, grace and mercy that God has waiting for them? Are they able to read enough that they would want to turn to the Lord and receive His great salvation? Is what they are reading making them desire to know Him or turning them away from Him?

Some people will never pick up the Bible to read it; some will never go to a church; some will never turn on Christian television, for them the only hope of "hearing and seeing" the truth of God's word will only come through your life... is what they are seeing enough for them to see Christ and desire to have Him?

Have a great day. If your life is the only Bible some folks will read.... what are they reading?

"When We Fall"

"The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down." Psalm 145:14

"The Lord upholds all that fall." The Hebrew word for uphold here means to uphold, to sustain, to aid. So the Lord aids those who fall. He sustains them. He upholds them by His power and grace. He doesn't beat down those who fall. He doesn't condemn them. He doesn't turn His back on them. He doesn't belittle those who fall. When we fall during a time of temptation or weakness, the Lord doesn't walk away from us. Instead He lifts us up. He strengthens us. He brings help and aid to us. Though we fall we are not utterly cast down. When we fall, it is not the end of us.

Why do we think that God will turn His back and be done with us when we fall? When my daughter was little and learning how to walk, there were times when she would fall down. Even as she began to grow up there were times when she didn't do as well as she should have. There were also times that she knew better than to do some of the things that she did, but she did them anyway. Did I turn my back on her? Did I forsake and leave her? Did I give up on her? Did I condemn and beat her up about it? No. And the reason why I didn't is simple-- I love her dearly. Therefore, I want to see her succeed. I want to see her going forward in life. Did the mistakes she made always make me happy? No, but I still loved her. And my love for her compelled me to help her keep going forward.

If we will treat our own children with love and care, why do we think that God won't do the same with us? Evidently, we don't realize how much He truly loves us. We must not know that He is for us and on our side. He wants to see you succeed. He wants to help you when you fall. He wants to put you back on your feet and help you to learn to stand. He is not the one who condemns us. He does not turn His back on us.

Have you fallen? Let God pick you up. Let Him come to your aid. Let Him sustain you and help you to continue to go forward. He loves you and desires to get you back on your feet again.

Have a great day. God does not turn His back on us when we fall. He wants to help us get up.

"Sin Size"

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. " 1 John 1:9

"... from all unrighteousness. " The blood of Jesus doesn't "pick and choose" which sins it forgives and washes away. It washes away "all" of them. We tend to "categorize" sin. We have what we consider "big" sins and "little" sins. And we think that for some reason the "big" ones are either too big for Jesus' blood to forgive or it takes "more" of the blood to take care of them. Then we think that the "little" ones aren't important enough or are too small to bother with- they are so small that the Lord will just let them "slide by". Neither thinking is correct. Sin is sin- big, little or somewhere in between. All sin has to be dealt with. All sin was taken care of by the blood of Jesus.

How small a sin is too small that it is all right for it to be in our lives? Let's say that you have a 55 gallon container full of pure fresh water. If you take one small drop of raw sewage and dropped it in that container of water, would you still drink it? I wouldn't. The water has been contaminated by what? Gallons of raw sewage? No, by one small drop.

How big a sin is too big? We tend to think that mass murders, rapist, people who cheat hundreds of people out of their life savings, are sins that are too big to be forgiven by the blood of Jesus. That is not what the Bible tells us, and it gives us examples of those who did such things and had their sins forgiven and washed clean. We better be glad that God washes away the "big" ones as well. Because we don't know that we might not be the ones whose sins are too big to be forgiven. If sin had a size, who would determine the "size"- whether they are little or big? God would be the one. How would we know that what we consider small He might actually consider big- so that left us out of having our sins forgiven.

I am so thankful that the bottom line is: Jesus shed His blood for all, because all have sinned. And His blood was and is powerful enough to take care of every sin- regardless- and wash away even the stain that might otherwise be left behind.

Have a great day. If sin had a size, the blood of Jesus would still be powerful enough to take care of them all.

"Bless The Lord"

"I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalm 34:1

"I will". Not maybe or perhaps, not I might or I will think about it. But instead nothing can stop me from blessing the Lord. I choose to bless Him. I make the decision to do it.

"...bless the Lord". I will kneel before Him giving my whole life as a gift into His hands. I will lift up my hands in worship to Him. I will open my mouth and extol the glory of His holy name.

"... at all times". Not only in the good times. Not only when all is well. Not only when I have plenty and not in need. Even in the bad times, in trying times, in times that test my faith, in dark times when the light is hid and in times when the door has been shut. At times when I do not understand why and in times when I have all the answers. In times of pain, grief and sorrow. In times of great joy and peace. There is never a time when I will not bless the Lord.

To bless the Lord is a choice that we make each and every day. We don't make it based on our feelings or our circumstances. We make it based on the fact of who He is- He is God and He is worthy of all our praise. He is worthy of any gift we have to bestow upon Him. We make it based on what He has already done for us. He showed us such grace and mercy when He died on the cross to save us. He has blessed us with more than we ever deserve, or could ever hope for. He has showed us His wonderful kindness and goodness time and time again. The blessing is about the Recipient and His worth. He is worthy to be praised and adored. Therefore, I choose to bless His holy name always. What about you?

Have a great day. "I will bless the Lord at all times!"

"EXIT"

"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." 1 Corinthians 10:13

God always makes a way out of the temptation. The way is there and has already been provided, we just have to look for it. When I go into a public building, I will notice that there are "EXIT" signs over each door. When the designer of that building started drafting his plans, he included exits out of the building. He saw past the design stage of the building to the completed structure. By doing so he took into consideration the fact that one day there might be a fire or other reason for those who were in the building to have to evacuate quickly. So he provided for that when he was drawing up the plans.

Our Heavenly Father, the great designer of our lives, looks past the moment and sees the times in our future when we will be faced with temptation and need an "EXIT" route in order to flee from it. So He placed them there ahead of time, we just have to look for them. When I go into a public building the "EXIT" signs are there, I just have to look for them. They aren't hard to find, they are easily marked. There is a red sign that says "EXIT" above them all. God's exit routes from the temptation are not hard to find either, they are easily marked. And they are "red" also. Red is the color of the blood. The way of escape has been provided for and marked by the blood of Jesus. His shed blood assures us of victory over each temptation as we follow His example and do what He did when He was tempted.

If I need to get out of a building, I not only look for the "EXIT" sign but I have to go through the opening that is marked by it. I can't ignore it or make my own exit. That is the one I must use- the one that was provided for that purpose. We can't make our own way of escape from temptation, we must follow God's escape route. Which is, following His Son Jesus and applying His word to our lives. His word will always give you a way of escape when it is heeded.

Have a great day. Look for the "EXIT" sign, it is not hard to find.

"Which Perspective? "

"For we walk by faith, not by sight". 2 Corinthians 5:7

I had a dream that I was invited to speak at a Men's Conference. I was so excited because I have never done that before. I love encouraging men to be all that God has planned for them to be, plus it would be good for the men to hear from a woman's perspective about some things- esp. like how to treat women.

We tend to look at things from one perspective. Usually it is from the perspective of our gender, race, age or culture. Because I am a woman, I see things from a woman's perspective. It takes my husband to show me that there are often two sides to the situation. I see the situation from the emotional side. He sees it from a more practical side.

By looking at things "one sided" we miss so much. We do this not only on a physical level but on a spiritual one as well. We tend to look at things from a natural perspective instead of a spiritual perspective. We judge everything by what we can see, hear, feel, taste or touch. We are motivated by what the natural evidence shows us. Our behavior, attitude and actions are prompted by the physical world around us. Our emotions are governed by those things that are tangible.

As believers in Christ we can't look at everything on a natural level. We must see them through the eyes of faith and from the perspective of God's word. That's what is meant by "the just shall live by faith". We don't live solely by what we see in the natural, we don't live solely by what we hear from human voices. We live by what we see in God's word and what we hear from the voice of the Spirit. For example, when David went out to fight Goliath, King Saul tried to put his armor on David so that he would be protected in battle. The king was looking from a natural perspective- - you go to war, you need weapons of protection. God's perspective was, "the battle is the Lord's". God's perspective is what brought the giant down and gave David the victory. Another example is the walls of Jericho. From a natural perspective those walls couldn't come down without some heavy artillery. God's perspective was "march around the city and blow a horn". God's perspective brought those walls down.

There is a natural perspective and then there is God's perspective, and for the believer God's perspective is the one we need to heed, follow and allow to govern our lives.

Have a great day. Are you looking at things from one perspective only- a natural perspective? Or are you living your life by looking at things from God's perspective.

"Who Is It Hurting?"

"The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh." Proverb 11:17

One of my mother's sayings is- "what goes around, comes around". I have heard her say that all my life, and discovered that it is true. It is true because there is a Biblical principal involved in those words. It is called sowing and reaping. Sowing and reaping applies to more areas than just our finances.

One area it applies to is our treatment of others. You can't be cruel to someone and it not eventually show up on your own "door step". You can't mistreat someone and it not come back to you. When you take advantage of another person, you will pay for it. The most visual illustration that I can give of this is when someone commits a crime. If a young man murders someone, yes, he has destroyed that life, but that was not the only hurt he did. He himself will reap the punishment of his actions for the rest of his life. He "troubled" his own soul, he hurt himself, he brought misery upon his own life.

We must be cautious of how we treat (or mistreat) others. First, because they are people who God has created and He loves them. Secondly, Jesus taught us to "do to others as we would have others do to us". Not only should we treat others the way we want to be treated, but there is a warning in His words that tell us the way we treat others will be the same way we are treated. How do you want to be treated? How do you not want to be treated? We must remember that our treatment of others will eventually come back to us-- either to "haunt" us or to "bless" us. Which will it be? Another wise saying I have heard is, "You aren't hurting anybody but yourself".

Have a great day. What goes around, comes around. What you do to another, good or bad, will come back upon you.

"He Will Not Turn You Away"

"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37

I feel that this morning's devotional is more of a personal word to someone. Perhaps you have "messed up"- you have missed the mark, you have disobeyed, you have turned from the Lord and now you are sorry and repentant but feel too guilty to come to Him, or you feel that if you do go to Him He will turn His back on you and reject you.

"And him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out". These are the words of Jesus and His words are truth. He is not going to turn His back on you. He is not going to turn you away-- no matter what you have done. Remember the story of the prodigal son. It is a picture of the great love and forgiveness of a father toward his rebellious, wayward child. But it is not just a story about any father, it is a picture of the Heavenly Father- a Father who will not turn His repent child away, but instead will embrace him.

Your Heavenly Father longs to embrace you and wash the pain, shame and guilt of what you have done away. He wants to restore you and set you back in right relationship with Himself. The father in the story did not turn his son away, even with the stench of the pigpen on him, but restored him to his rightful place as an heir.

Why would you think that once you turn to Him He would turn you away? That was the whole reason why Jesus came to earth and died on the cross. He died for that very reason- to restore, save, bring the lost and wayward to the Father. If He were going to turn you away, then what He did at the cross made no sense and was for nothing. This morning He stands with outstretched arms waiting for you to come. Don't let the devil, or your own mind, convince you that you can't. Jesus died so you could and He wouldn't have gone through the suffering of the cross if He didn't want you to, or if He was going to close the door on you when you did.

Have a great day. His will is that you come, so He won't turn you away when you do.

"Expect His Goodness"

"Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness." Psalm 65:11

I am believing that this is going to be a good year. By that do I mean that nothing bad is going to happen? When I say that does it mean that I don't think that anything will go wrong, that there won't be trials, pain or suffering? Not at all. This world is tainted by sin. As long as sin is present there will be heartaches and tribulation. Jesus Himself said that in this world there would be tribulation.

When I say that I am believing that this is going to be a good year, I mean that regardless of what may come our way, we will see the goodness of the Lord shining through it. We will see Him working all things together for our good. We will see His power prevail and His presence will go with us. We will see His goodness entwined in every situation, and some how even when things aren't right, His glory will be revealed.

So expect His goodness to be present even in the midst of calamity. Expect His goodness to overshadow what may seem devastating. Expect His goodness to follow you this year-- and all the days of your life.

Have a great day. Good things may not be happening, but His goodness will still surround you.

"Hidden Lights"

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5:14

"Ye are the light of the world." How do we become lights? We are born into darkness and are darkness. "For ye were sometimes darkness:" (Ephesians 5:8a) Darkness cannot change itself into something that it is not, or into something that it is diametrically opposed to.

The way we become light is through Jesus, He is the Light. We become light when we become born again, when we surrender our lives to Him, when He comes and lives within us. Then it is His light that shines through us. This light is Jesus-- without Him we have no light.

Lights have one purpose-- to shine. When they are hidden, they are not shining. "Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house." (verse 15) Our lights were never meant to be hidden. If Jesus is the Light that is in us- because we have no light of our own- then He is meant to "shine" through us, not be hidden.

Is Jesus hidden in your life? Or is He shining? How can He be hidden? He is hidden when we exhibit something through our lives that He is not. He is love. When we have hate and malice toward someone, He is hidden. When we are living in immorality, He is hidden. When we don't show forgiveness but rather hold a grudge, He is hidden. When we are bitter, mean tempered, rude, unkind, covetous, greedy, condemning, arrogant, proud, boastful, abusive and lustful, He is hidden.

On the other hand, He is shining through us and not hidden when we are kind, tenderhearted, loving, forgiving, compassionate, giving, self-denying, content, meek, humble, gracious, faithful, temperate and walking in peace and joy.

So, examine yourself and see if what you are doing and the type of life you are living is allowing Jesus to shine through you or is it hiding Him.

Have a great day. Lights have one purpose- to shine. Are you?

"The Fuel of Influence"

"God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked." Job 16:11

When Job spoke his accusations against God, he was speaking under the influence of his situation. He was hurting, in pain, grief and confusion. And although he was going through a devastating trial, what he said was not correct. God had not delivered him to the ungodly or the hands of the wicked. He had not brought wrath upon him (verse 9).

When we are going through a trying time, when fear is coming upon us, when pain is overwhelming us, when grief has touched us, when worry is plaguing us, we must watch what we say. We must be on guard that we don't speak out of what is happening to us. We must not let our circumstance influence us- or our speech.

While there is an "extreme" teaching concerning "confession" , there is a true Biblical principal on the subject. Our words are important and powerful. We have to be careful about what we say. When we are being attacked by fear, we have to watch that we don't let the fear influence what we say because it only gives more power to the fear. It is like putting wood on a fire-- it only gives it fuel. "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." (James 3:6) It is the same way with anything. If we speak from worry, the worry will increase and we will worry more.

Like Job, when we speak under the influence of what we are going through, we will be speaking things that are not correct. We will accuse God of forsaking us, of hating us, of not caring about us or of not being faithful- but that is all incorrect.

So what must we do? We must stop fueling the "fire". "Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out." (Proverbs 26:20a) Stop talking that fear, pain, worry, doubt, depression, bitterness, etc. And instead start fueling it with what is correct. Good things are also fueled by our words-- like faith. Faith comes through hearing. Hearing what? God's word. (And even more so when we hear it coming from our own mouths.) So we must learn to speak from God's influence (His word), not the influences of what we are going through or what is attacking us.

Have a great day. Under what influence are you speaking?

"God's Plan Is Not Easy"

"But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake." Acts 9:15,16

Every true follower of Christ has one primary desire-- to fulfill God's plan for their life. Why is it though that we think that plan is "easy"? Why do we think that once we know it, we are just going to "sail" smoothly into it? Fulfilling God's plan isn't always easy. It often comes at a price. It gets us out of our comfort zone. It stretches us. It causes us to exercise our faith. It takes us into unfamiliar places. It leads us through paths that we don't always understand.

The plan of God took Joseph into a pit, Potiphar's house and a prison before it took him to the palace and the fulfillment of God's plan for his life. The plan of God took Abraham away from his home not knowing where he was going. God's plan took Moses before Pharaoh ten times. His plan took Mary to a stable in Bethlehem in order to give birth to the Savior of the world. The plan of God took Paul through perils, shipwreck, beatings and prison. The plan of God took the apostles into persecution and eventually martyrdom. Even our beloved Savior Jesus fulfilled the plan of God through death on the cross.

God's plan never takes us in a straight line from point A to point B. It often takes us up then down. It very often takes us from the mountaintop to the valley, from the wilderness to the fiery furnace. So don't think it strange if God's plan doesn't unfold or come about in the way you thought it should. Don't think you have missed it if there is hardship or discomfort involved. It doesn't always just "fall into your lap". It doesn't always come without some pain and suffering attached to it. It doesn't always come without affliction. But when you see the plan unfold and God is glorified through it, it will be worth it all. The joy of giving birth to the Messiah outweighed the discomfort of the long journey to the stable, and the labor and delivery that Mary went through to fulfill God's plan. The delivery of a nation from bondage outweighed the burden that Moses when through to fulfill God's plan. The joy of having sons and daughters born into the Kingdom of God outweighed the suffering that Jesus went through on the cross in fulfilling God's plan. The joy that you will receive once you reach the place of fulfilling God's plan will outweigh the pain, the suffering, the hard journey and the struggle that you had to go through in order to fulfill it.

Have a great day. God's plan isn't always easy, but it is worth whatever we have to go through to fulfill it.

"God's Plan Is Not Easy - Part 2"

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." Psalm 23:4

Yesterday we talked about the fact that God's plan for us is not always easy. We don't just "sail smoothly" into it. His plan often takes us into unfamiliar and uncomfortable places. There are times when God's plan will take us into dark, uncertain and even scary places.

The pit that Joseph wound up in on his way to fulfilling God's plan in the palace was a deep, dark and scary place. I am sure it was an intimidating place for Moses when he stood before Pharaoh. When Daniel was in exile in Babylon, I am sure that he missed his family and homeland even though he stood in the presence of kings.

Even though God's plan may take us into hard places, there is one thing that is certain when we are walking in and fulfilling His plan for our lives-- He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will walk though it with us. He never left Joseph during the years while he was in route to the palace. He never left Abraham when he left his homeland. He never left him when he was sorely tested to offer up his son Isaac as a sacrifice. He never forsook Daniel, even in the lion's den. He did not run out on Moses when he was in Pharaoh's court.

The plan of God may not be easy to fulfill. There may be pain, struggle and even grief attached to it. You may be facing uncertainty. The way may look dark and dismal. It may look confusing- you may not understand why He is leading in a certain direction. But take heart, He will never leave you on the journey of walking out His plan alone. He is walking it with you.

Have a great day. No matter how hard the plan of God may look, you are not walking out His plan alone- He is with you.

"The Quick Passing of Time"

"Redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:16

This will be the last devotional that I share with you this year. So I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous and blessed New Year. My prayer for you throughout the coming year is that "The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace." (Numbers 6:24-26)

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of another year- not just another week or month, but a year. Where did it go? It has certainly gone by quickly. I have always heard adults say that the older you get the faster time goes by. But over the past couple of years I have begun to hear many younger people say the same thing. I believe the quick passing of time is a sign that the return of the Lord is near. The Bible speaks of an "acceleration" of time. "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt." (Amos 9:13) The reaper will over take the sower. This eludes to the fact that you will barely have time to plant the seed before it is time to harvest it. I don't know about you, but I am seeing this very thing happen in my own life. I hardly have time to do one thing before it is time to do it again.

In light of this fact, what should we as believers be doing with our time? Should we be squandering it on foolishness? On selfish interests? On things that will not even matter a week from now? Or should we be taking advantage of it and help promote the gospel of the Kingdom of God? Should we be warning the wicked man to repent of his wicked way? Should we be reaching out to the hurting with compassion? Should we be letting our lights shine in this dark world? Should we be living salty lives that cause others to thirst for this Jesus that we live for? Should we be letting others see and know that God loves them deeply and dearly? Should we be reaching out as His hand extended to the hurting, the hungry, the widow and the orphan? What should we be doing? How can we make the best use of what time we still have available? The theme scripture of this ministry is, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work." (John 9:4) The night is fast approaching, the day is about to be over, if we don't do the works now, we won't be able to do them later-- it will be too late.

So what are you going to do with this new year that lies ahead of you? Or better yet, what are you going to do with this new day that is ahead of you, that the Lord has blessed and allowed you to wake up to? Will you use it wisely, redeeming the time, or will you waste it?

Have a great day. Time is a gift, but it goes by so fast, what are you going to do with it?

"He Loves You"

"The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." Jeremiah 31:3

As I was praying about what the Lord wanted to say to us this morning, He spoke the words above to me--- "I have loved you with an everlasting love". This morning He wants to remind someone that He loves you. You are feeling unloved because of guilt from the mistakes you have made. You are wondering if He still loves you; or how could He still love you after what you have done. You disobeyed, you made a mess of things, you turned away. I am here to reassure you this morning that He has not stopped loving you. His love is everlasting- that means it has no end to it. He will love you as much today as He did yesterday, and He'll love you as much tomorrow as He does today. His loves bears, believes, hopes and endures all things. His love doesn't give up on you. It is unconditional. It isn't "fair weather love"- present as long as you are doing everything right and as long as you are giving love back to Him in returned. Remember, He loved you first, before you ever loved Him. He loved you while you were still dead in trespasses and sin. He gave Himself as a ransom for your sins while you were still His enemy.

This morning do not let guilt, condemnation, your mistakes and failures convince you that God does not love you. He does love you, and this morning through this word (if you will believe it) He is drawing you to Himself by His loving-kindness. Go to Him, don't run from Him. Repent. Tell Him you are sorrow. Tell Him how much you really do love Him. Pour out your heart to Him. He will not turn you away, but He will forgive you, cleanse you, restore you and embrace you. He is a loving Father who wants to lavish His love on you.

Have a great day. HE REALLY LOVES YOU!

"Provision Ahead Of Time"

"And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him." Matthew 2:13

Two verses prior to this one we read about the wise men presenting their gifts to the Christ child. When they presented their gifts, perhaps Mary and Joseph began to have ideas about what to do with them. Perhaps it could be used to build a more suitable house for their special new arrival or put up for His "college fund" later? But in hindsight we see that God was sending a provision ahead of time to meet a need that was right around the corner... "flee to Egypt". The Lord saw beforetime the trip they would have to make and the expenses it would entail. He saw the need to purchase a place for them to live once they got to Egypt. He knew that Joseph would have a find another job, or start a new business, in a strange place, and that they would have to eat in the meantime. So the gifts were given to provide for their upcoming needs.

When the Lord blesses us, we tend to think about what we are going to do with it- perhaps purchase something we have been desiring to have, or put it aside for later use. I can remember going through a really hard financial period in our lives- not always knowing where our next meal would come from. The Lord would bless us with an unexpected financial blessing but in a day or two something unforeseen would arise that would take all of it. It seemed as if we were never going to "get ahead". I have heard so many other people say this same thing. They would receive a financial blessing, but no sooner than they did some expense would take all of it.

It took me a while to understand that what was happening was not the "devour coming to take what I had", it was the Lord seeing ahead and making provision for the need. The Lord saw what was coming, so He sent what I would need so that when it came I would have it. (This is what He did for Mary and Joseph.) One of His names is Jehovah-Jireh (God our Provider, the One who sees ahead and makes provision, the One who will "see to it"). Beloved, this is what is going on more times than not when this happens to us. Instead of rejoicing and thanking God that the provision was there when the need presented itself, we bemoan and complain about it being taken. We need to change our attitude about the way we see things and consider that there may be another reason why God has sent this blessing.

Have a great day. The provision the Lord sends is not always about the present, sometimes it is about what lies ahead.

"Keeping Joy"

"....for the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10b

Who doesn't want joy in their lives. We search in a wide variety of areas hoping to find it. We hope to obtain it through material possessions, through popularity, through relationships, through wealth, through success. But true and lasting joy comes only from one source-- "of the Lord". Only He can give true and lasting joy. Only He can give us a joy that passes the test of time, that withstands the storm, that holds steady when we are being shaken.

Have you ever noticed that at a time when you should be full of joy, instead there is sorrow and confusion? You should be rejoicing because God has answered your prayer and you have seen the promise come to pass, but you aren't. You would have thought that the Israelites, when they came out of Egypt would have come out overjoyed. After all, the Lord had delivered them from cruelty and bondage. But they barely made it out of the city and you don't see rejoicing you see fear, doubt, complaining and rebellion. That's because- in their lives and in ours- there is a thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy, and one of the things he is after is our joy.

If there should be joy in your life but there isn't, the thief is at work. He has come to steal it. How does he steal it? By getting you to look at the circumstances. By getting you to "believe what you see". Our joy stays intact when we look at God's word, His promises and His faithfulness. Our joy is of the Lord, in the Lord and through the Lord, so by staying focused on the Lord the thief cannot steal our joy.

Have a great day. Our joy is of the Lord, and we keep it by staying focused on Him.

"Peace Where?"

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." Luke 2:14

"On earth peace". These words brought hope into a world that is without peace. There is no peace to be found in this world. There are wars, rumors of war, murder, hate, toil, strife, hardships, burdens, oppression, calamities, etc. When the angels pronounced their good tidings, they pronounced that peace was on its way.

Peace had to come from some where besides the earth. It had to come from heaven. Man cannot devise peace. He had tried for over two-thousand years without success. Mankind has been unable to achieve it through his wars for peace, through his compromises, through his threats, through his plans or through his resources. As a matter of fact, man lost the peace that was on earth back in the Garden of Eden.

We are hopelessly without peace and the ability to make peace, no matter how hard we try. So peace had to come from the only true source of peace- God Himself. Peace was entering the world again after two-thousand years. It was coming to set itself up in the earth once more- this time within the hearts of men.

There won't be total and lasting peace universally on earth until Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace returns to set up His Kingdom here on earth. But this peace that the angels sang about is a peace that can abide in the individual hearts and lives of those who will receive Jesus as Savior and follow His plan for their lives.

The peace He gives doesn't necessarily mean we will live peacefully with everyone we encounter or the rest of mankind. It doesn't mean that enemies won't rise against us. It means that we now have peace with God and are no longer His enemies. Only Jesus' coming and death on the cross could pave the way for us to have peace with God. To have peace with God and know all is well between you and Him is so much better than to have peace with the rest of mankind. And the key to have any peace with others comes from having peace with God. Do you have peace with Him?

Have a great day. Jesus came to bring peace into the hearts of those who would accept Him.

"Right Timing"

"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law." Galatians 4:4

"The fullness of time" is a phrase that I have been hearing in my spirit a lot lately. The Bible says to everything there is a season and a time. There is a time when a certain thing occurs, when an event happens, when a birth takes place, when a promise is fulfilled. We would call it-- right timing. It's a time when all the conditions have been met and everything that needs to be in place is.

The thing about "the fullness of time" is that it is God's time- not ours. The "fullness of time" is when God says that it is time for this thing to happen. Eve thought the fullness of time- the promise of the seed that would bruise the head of the serpent- was when she conceived Seth. This promised seed did not come until two-thousand years later with the birth of Christ. Abraham thought that the fullness of time to receive the promised son would be in nine months- the length of time a baby is carried in the womb. But for Abraham the fullness of time came twenty-five years later. The fullness of time did not come for David at his anointing by Samuel, but around fourteen years later. The fullness of time for the Israelite's deliverance from Egyptian bondage did not come the day after Moses went to Pharaoh asking for the release of God's people- it came after all the plagues were fulfilled. Mary did not birth the Christ child the morning after the angel gave her the news, He came nine months later.

We don't understand why the manifestation of the promise of God often waits in coming to pass in our lives, but it is because it is not the "fullness of time". All things aren't ready. Some things need to happen first. Some things need to change. Some things need to be put in place. If it happens too early something may be lacking. You may not can handle it then. But just because it delays doesn't mean it will not happen. Just because it doesn't happen when we think it should doesn't mean that He won't fulfill His promise. God is a sovereign God who sees the end from the beginning, therefore, He sees all things in the middle and by seeing the whole picture He is orchestrating things to be in the right place at the right time. God moves on His time clock. He does everything perfectly. He is never late and never early but always at the right time-- which is called the "fullness of time".

Have a great day. God doesn't work according to our time clock but His own, and in the fullness of His time the promise will be fulfilled.

"To Save People"

"But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." Genesis 50:20

"To save much people alive." When the Lord uses us or places us in some position, we must resist the temptation to "think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think". We must not look at what He is doing through us as an avenue solely for the purpose of blessing us or making us great.

When Joseph was promoted in Egypt to the place of leadership, it was not so that Joseph could have a great biography to write about how he went from being betrayed to power. It wasn't so that he could brag about how he got from the pit to the palace. It was so that he could save many people during the famine. When Esther was made queen, it wasn't so that she could have a rags to riches story. It wasn't so that she could boast of being a captive who became a queen. It was so that she could save her people from annihilation. When Mary was chosen to give birth to the Son of God, it wasn't so that she could find a place of honor among the saints. It was so that the Savior could come into this world who would save us from our sins.

When God uses you to do something great in His kingdom, it is not about you either. It is not so that you can become famous or popular. It is not so that everyone will know your name. It is not so that you will be admired. It is always so that He can receive glory because whatever He has called you to do will "save many people". Remember this- God in His sovereignty could have chosen someone else besides Joseph, Esther or Mary. It was nothing that they did to cause Him to chose them. In His sovereignty He could have also chosen someone else to do the task He has called you to do. He could have even called a "donkey" to do it. So never think more highly of yourself than you should. Always remember why He called you. Stay focused on Him and what He has called you to do and not on yourself.

Have a great day. Whatever He has called you to do will be about saving people, not about you.

"Counselors"

"Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety." Proverbs 11:14

"In the multitude of counsellors there is safety." We all have times when we have to seek out the counsel of others. We need help, we need instruction at times because we don't always know what to do. Pharaoh sought counsel concerning the dreams he had. Moses needed the wise counsel of his father in law concerning judging the matters of the children of Israel. Ruth heeded the counsel of her mother in law concerning Boaz.

"Where no counsel is, the people fall." Without godly counsel we can rest assured that we will fall- that is what the verse tells us. We can easily make mistakes. We can go in the wrong direction. We can mess up our lives. Without wise godly counsel we will do "what is right in our own eyes". Doing what is right in our own eyes ends up leading us in the way of death.

Where do we get counsel? From our spiritual leaders, our teachers, our elders, those who are more educated than we are, those who have greater wisdom or from our public officials? The answer is yes, we can get counsel from all the above. But there is a primary source of counsel that we tend to forget about and instead seek out the counsel of other people. "And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6b) Our beloved Jesus whose birth we are getting ready to celebrate, our everlasting Father, His name is called Counselor. He is the Counselor of counselors. He is the greatest counselor because He knows everything about everything. He knows everything about the situation. He knows the end result before it even begins. He knows every detail, every hidden motive, every agenda, everything! And when He gives His counsel, it is not with an ulterior motive, it is not to trap you into something, it is not to take advantage of you, it won't lead you astray, He counsels you according to counsel of His own will-- with your best interest at heart. He counsels you according to the good plans that He has for your life.

While the Bible tells us to seek out godly, wise counsel so that we will have safety in the decisions that we make, we must never place the counsel of men before the counsel of God. Get counsel from others, but go to God and seek His counsel as well.

Have a great day. His name shall be called Counsellor.

"Only One I Am"

"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." Exodus 3:14

I have noticed in the music field, entertainment field and throughout various parts of society that "I AM" has become the popular saying. Many people out there are identifying themselves as "I Am". I want to set the record straight this morning-- there is only one "I Am" and that is God. This title is ascribed to Him alone.

While people might like to think that they are "I Am"- He only is. In those two small words is wrapped up the full nature, character and identity of God-- I Am the Beginning and the End. I Am the Creator. I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I Am unchanging. I Am all powerful, all knowing and all present. I Am the Provider. I Am the Deliverer. I Am the Good Shepherd. I Am the soon coming King of kings. I Am the all sufficient One. (The list is endless, because He is endless.)

While men like to think they share equality with God- they don't. Anything we have, anything we possess, anything we can do or accomplish, is only because He so graciously blesses us with them. Even our beloved Savior Jesus declared, "Without Him I can do nothing".

When someone thinks that they are "I Am" (meaning so great and powerful), perhaps what they should mean is- I am unable to save myself. I am not able to deliver myself. I am lost. I am without hope if I am the one who can fix the problem. I am not very smart or wise. I am weak. I am helpless. I am nothing without the Lord. These are more truthful statements. And it is only when we realize this truth that we will switch positions from thinking we are "I Am" to allowing the true "I Am" to take control and charge of our lives.

Have a great day. Man is not "I AM", the True and Living God is the only "I Am".

"Praise Among The Presents"

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." Psalm 100:4

Perhaps you are wondering why I would use the verse above to open the devotional- after all, we tend to associate this verse with the Thanksgiving holiday and we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas. For the Christian each day should be a day to give God thanksgiving and praise, but especially now as we are in the Christmas season. What better time to thank the Lord for the wonderful gift of His Son who came into the world to save us from our sins.

It is so easy to get caught up in all the trappings that we associate with Christmas that we forget why we are celebrating. It is so easy to get anxious about all the demands and details that go along with the preparation for our celebration. It is so easy to let the pressures of finding the "right" gift, having the finances to pay for it, time limitations to get it all done before its too late, make us frustrated. And as we are paying attention to the "externals" that we call Christmas we can miss the true reason for our celebration.

We need to stop all our running around and take time to offer up thanksgiving and praise for the true reason behind Christmas. We need to thank the Lord for His gift. We need to thank Him for not leaving us in our sins, but providing a way of escape. We need to thank Him for paying the greatest price ever paid to redeem us. We need to praise Him for His wonderful grace, for eternal life, for devising a plan to save us and for fulfilling that plan. In short, we need to praise Him for the true meaning of Christmas and the great gift of love that He gave to the world that first Christmas night.

Have a great day. Don't let the true meaning or your praise get lost among the trappings of what we consider Christmas.

"Who's Your Friend?"

"But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David's brother: and Jonadab was a very subtil man." 2 Samuel 13:3

Let me give you a little background about this verse. Amnon was King David's oldest son. He fell in love with his half sister Tamar. The Bible records that he wanted her so badly that it made him ill because he thought it was impossible for him to ever be with her. So he made no attempts toward her, but just grew sicker and sicker because of his longing for her.

But Amnon had a "friend" so all that was about to change. This friend encouraged him to pursue his desire and even devised a plan to fulfill it. The end of the story was that Amnon finally fulfilled his desire to be with his sister by raping her. Although he wanted her badly he did not make any advance to cause it to happen until his "friend" showed him how to get what he wanted.

Friendship is a wonderful blessing, or it can be a curse if you don't choose your friends wisely. The Bible warns us that evil companions corrupt good morals. This was certainly the case with Amnon's "friend". It was only at the advice and prompting of his friend that he filled his lust toward his sister by raping her. Up until that point he made no advances toward her and was innocent of that evil.

How many of us have gotten into trouble because we listened to a "friend's advice". This is why it is so important that you choose your friends wisely. The right kind of friends will encourage you to do the right thing. Many people have been led astray by their "friend". This is one of the first things we encourage those who are getting out of the recovery center to do-- break ties with those "friends" that you did drugs with- they will only bring you back down into that pit with them. This is why parents are concerned about their children's friendships.

Choosing your friends wisely is so important. A good friend has your best interest at heart. They will help you make the wisest choice and weigh the consequences of making the wrong choice- not just help you figure out how to get what you want. Ungodly friends will lead you in the wrong direction. It may have seemed like Jonadab had his friend's best interest at heart, but he wound up doing him more harm in the end-- Amnon hated Tamar after he raped her instead of loving her, and his act against her eventually led to his death.

Think about your friendships. Do you have any that you should not have? Are your friends building you up or pulling you down? Are they encouraging you to do the right thing, or the wrong thing? Are they helping you get closer to the Lord and obeying His commands, or do they pull you further away from Him and into sin?

Have a great day. Friendship is a wonderful blessing, or it can be a curse if you don't choose your friends wisely.

"Ignorance Equals Concern"

"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope." 1 Thessalonians 4:13

It is always our ignorance that gives us cause for concern. When we are concerned about a matter, it is usually because we are ignorant of the details, outcome or results concerning the matter. If I have understanding and knowledge of the matter I am less concerned. As in the verse above. These believers at Thessalonica were concerned about their brothers and sisters in the Lord who had already died as to what would become of them at the resurrection. The apostle set their minds at ease with the truth of God's word concerning this matter.

We don't have to stay in a state of confusion and concern because of ignorance. God's word gives us clarity, enlightenment and understanding- and along with that comes hope. If you are concerned about a matter, if you aren't sure about what is going on, then go to God's word, go to Him in prayer, seek Him. He will enlighten the eyes of your understanding. He will give you revelation and insight. He will guide you, calm your fears, and clarify your concerns. After all, He doesn't want us to be anxious, worried or overly concerned. And He doesn't want us in ignorance. He wants us to know the truth because when we do, the truth will set us free-- free from worry and anxiety.

Have a great day. Ignorance often causes us to worry and be anxious, but the knowledge of the truth gives clarity and peace.

"Don't You Waver"

"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)." Hebrews 10:23

If there is any wavering it is clear that it is on our part, not God's. He is faithful- always has been, always will be. He hasn't changed and He never will. He was faithful in the past and He will be faithful in the future. He was faithful yesterday and He will still be today. He remains faithful even when we aren't.

We are the ones who need to hold fast- be firm, not give up, not change, not waver- in our profession of faith, in our trust in Him, in our belief in His word. We are the ones who need to anchor our trust in His word, pattern our lives after it, build our hopes upon it. And we can, because He is faithful as promised.

How do we hold fast our profession of His faithfulness? How do we keep from wavering when the storms and trials come? By being grounded in His word. By hiding it in our hearts. By studying it. By renewing our minds with it. By keeping it before our eyes and in the hearing of our ears. This will build our faith and reinforce the foundation of His faithfulness that we are standing upon.

Have a great day. God will always be faithful, there is no wavering in Him.

"Family Resemblance"

"And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly." 1 Corinthians 15:49

It's not very often that I get to spend much time with my sister, but we were able to spend the whole day together just the two of us this weekend. Each time we have been together for any length of time and are out among the public, I have noticed that we are much more alike than I thought we were. We both have some of the same mannerisms. We interact with other people the same way. We have some of the same characteristics. We think alike, act alike and conduct ourselves in certain situations the same way- even though in many ways we are uniquely different.

While my sister and I don't look alike at all, we do tend to act alike. The reason is obvious-- we are family. I was thinking about this yesterday and the Lord spoke to me about family resemblance. As a part of God's family there should be some family resemblance that I have with my Big Brother (Jesus). I should have the same character and mannerisms that He has- love, grace, peace, joy. I should interact with others the way He does- with concern, compassion, mercy, patience.

The reason these same characteristics are evident in my sister and I is because we have the same daddy and mama. Jesus and I have the same Father- I am God's child. Therefore, I should be acting like Him. It should be said of me- "when you have seen me, you have seen the Father" (just as Jesus said). I am not saying that when you see me, you see deity and you don't see a "little god", but you should see His nature alive in me- the Fruit of the Spirit.

Another reason for the resemblance in our mannerisms is because my sister and I both grew up in the same house together- we both got our training, upbringing and influence from the same place. While Jesus was on the earth He was trained in "God's word" and communed with the Father through prayer. I am being trained in "God's word" also, and I have the same communion with the Father that Jesus did- if I am spending time with the Father in prayer. So, like my sister and I both grew up under the same influence, Jesus (while He was on earth) and I are under the same influence- God's word and His Holy Spirit. This means there should be a family resemblance between us.

Is there a family resemblance between you and Jesus? Do you "look" like the Father in your mannerisms, in the way you conduct yourself, in the way you deal with others? Do other people know that you are part of the family of God by the way you act and speak?

Have a great day. What kind of family resemblance do you bear with your Big Brother Jesus?

"Fear Of Who?"

"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28

Who do we fear? Has our fear of man replaced our fear of God? Have we stopped speaking the truth when the situation dictates because we fear man more than we fear God? Have we stopped contending for the faith because we fear man above our fear of God? Have we ceased to be obedient to the commands of God because of our fear of man?

King Saul is our example of the consequences of fearing man more than we fear God. "And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice." (1 Samuel 15:24) The Lord rejected him from being king over Israel.

"The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25) The fear of man will bring a snare that will disturb our peace. It also brings a snare that will entangle us and lead us into sin.

"I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass." (Isaiah 51:12) Why do we fear people- their opinions, their words, their looks, their responses, their threats- more than we fear God? They are no different than we are. They will all die one day just like we will. Their power is limited just like ours is. They aren't God, they can only kill the body- if God permits- and after that there is nothing else they can do to us. It is the fear of the Lord that we must be more concerned with than the fear of man, because He has the power to destroy both soul and body.

How do we stop fearing man? The antidote is to fear God. It is better to have them look down upon us, talk about us, ridicule us, persecute us, than to have God "frown" upon us.

Have a great day. When you truly fear God, you won't fear man.
