Jesus replied, ‘What is impossible with men is possible with God. - Luke
The main point for me as brought
out in the post, “Seeing and Believing”
is that we should be ready to meet God for direction each day just like Moses
did when he went up on Mount Sinai for we serve an amazing all powerful God who
is indescribable and uncontainable.
Our prayers will be heard as we
are connected by accepting our Savior. One small step changes everything and
our first step of accepting Jesus gives us a tremendous resource in the Holy
The Holy Spirit will guide us to
an amazing journey as we step ahead fearlessly. Amazing things will happen
because the presence of the Holy Spirit in our life will lift us to new heights.
Each day can be amazing because
with the Lord, you can passionately believe in what you are doing, let nothing
hold you up in your work and have faith that one day at a time the impossible
will become possible. Watch the video Indescribable
by Chris Tomlin to inspire you this day with God.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all
these things shall be added unto you. – Matthew 6:33
Brought out in the post “Regular Habit” was that Moses would go to a
tent set up away from the camp to meet with God. He would get instructions
about how to lead his people. As we begin each day, it’s important that we do
the same as we ask for guidance along life’s best path.
Moses cared about his people;
refusing to stay put but ready to move when God instructed. Receive inspiration
in the song I Refuse by Josh Wilsonthat has some of the same points as we face the
challenges ahead in fulfilling our purpose.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself
will be exalted. - Matthew 23:12
There are times when we have no
control over things and the only ability we have is to go to God in prayer and
humbly receive the power only He can give. Those we lead make messes and we clean
them up only to be pulled back into their messes again. During it all, the
thing we must do is keep calm, care for them, and keep shining the light.
In the post “Qualities of Leadership Found in Moses”, we
find that Moses continued to mediate for his people and was patient with them
even when they didn’t deserve it. Take inspiration from this song "Come As You Are by Crowder". Let us see
hope for the hopeless because all who believe in Christ are precious in God’s
sight. They can come as they are and fall in His arms.
But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. -
God’s actions seemed delayed
when Moses went to the top of the mountain to receive the Ten Commandments and
the people got impatient. As pointed out in the post “Hope Produces Patience”
our response when the answers to our prayers seem delayed should be to hold on
to the promise just like in this song: Hope
in Front of Me by Danny Gokey.
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and
all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord
blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. - Exodus 20:11
In the post “Filled With His Spirit”, God provided workers
who could reflect His creative activity in order to build and furnish the tent
of meeting; a place for His people to meet with Him.
Worship time is so important
because it is a time to meet with God and be filled with His Spirit. It also is
a day of rest so we can physically be prepared for the challenges faced in the
Several years ago, I began to
think a lot about how God could use me in a ministry at our church. One area
that caught my attention was using my technology background to help with the
tech team during our worship service.
I also wanted to use technology
in getting God’s Word out with this on-line Bible study guide. We live in a
very busy world with busy schedules so my hope was to use this tool to help with
daily Bible reading and study.
As you listen to this video: In Me by Casting Crowns take some time
to identify your strengths and how you can reflect God’s creative activity to a
world in need.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not
from yourselves, it is the gift of God. - Ephesians 2:8
Shared in the post “Immanuel” was the purpose of the tent of
meeting which was to have a place where people could meet with God. The Lord’s
presence back then and today is our great reward.
In present times, believers can
meet with God at any time or any place because of Christ’s atonement of sins on
the Cross. This day with God, rejoice in this great gift of God that has been
given to us.
The thoughts shared above can
turn a bad day into a good one. Suddenly, our attitude changes because we
realize that God is with us at any time or any place. We can watch videos and
listen to inspiring music like this: Holy
Spirit by Francesca Battistelli.
Each day we can build memories.
We can take pictures of His Creation like an amazing rainbow stretching from
one end of the sky to the next. We can use technology to take virtual vacations
by using the Internet. We can share with others around the world that God is
with us today.
I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to
do. – John 17:4
In the post “Detailed Instructions”, are thoughts about
the specific instructions for the offerings made in order to consecrate
priests. Today, we identify with Christ as our sin offering and the ultimate
sacrifice for our sins. Since Christ came and died on the Cross, we have a
direct relationship with God.
By accepting Christ into our
life; taking note of His teachings and by reading God’s Word, we get specific
instructions in how to live. Reading
God’s word is much like hunting or fishing because we have to be patient,
quite, and focused as we search for our daily spiritual food.
My grandfather loved to hunt. He
had dogs that he trained for the purpose of finding raccoons. They would smell
the trail and follow. Usually this led to a big tree where the raccoon would
climb to the very top. Along the way, the dog would bark until you could then
hear a different bark. It was a very excited bark in the same location and
there was bark after bark after bark. When the hunter heard this bark, he knew the
dog had the raccoon cornered.
Like these trained dogs of my
grandfather, we trail what we are passionate about for our Master. As a person
of faith, we find great truths that provide spiritual food and share these
truths with others. Here is a truth to share today in a song: Stop the World by Matthew West. This
day with God, remember that He is listening and is pleased when we have done
our job for Him.
