Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this
mountain, "Go, throw yourself into the sea," and does not doubt in
their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for
them. – Mark 11:23
Some great lessons are learned
after studying Joshua
3. As shared in the post, “How Amazing is
God”, with Him on our side, things will be set up to make the impossible
possible. What is difficult for us, is easy for God. The gift of Christ on the
Cross has freed us so we are not held back and like this song by Jesus Culture,
we can Break Every Chain.
What, then, shall we say in response to
these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31
Studying and sharing in the post
“Assistance to Go the Distance”, Rahab knew whose side to be on and she helped
the men of Joshua as they gathered intelligence. Even though she had a suspect
past, God was for her and she was used by God to fulfill His purpose. She
received God’s grace and listened to the right people. We all need God's grace
as we continue along lives journey. Once received, we can gain wisdom to live
the way life is meant to be lived.
This day with God, accept the
fact that God thinks you are AWESOME! You can use the skills you have, be happy
with who you are, and let God work out the rest. Receive inspiration for a
great day from today’s video: The Way –
This Book of the Law shall not depart from
your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to
do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way
prosperous, and then you will have good success. – Joshua 1:8
The post, “Obedience and Achievement” has some thoughts
about the benefits of knowing and applying God’s Word. If we take on challenges
along the journey of life one day at a time using God’s Word, we will find our glorious destination.
Let us know the plan and carry
it out on a daily basis. Let us pray for direction each day as we daily work to
fine tune and improve. Then every challenge will become possible.
There is freedom in obeying
God’s way because He cares for us more than we care for ourselves. Let’s start
our day with this inspiring song called One
Day at a Time by Jeremy Camp. God understands our needs more than we do so
let’s accept His guidance as we journey through life one day at a time.
And as for you, brothers and sisters, never
tire of doing what is good. – 2 Thessalonians 3:13
some thoughts in the post “Leading by Example”,
the main problem discussed was idleness. Paul emphasized being an example to
others by getting involved, being industrious, and working hard.
principles were adopted by the founding fathers of the United States. As the
of July from the blog altruisticao points out, the founding fathers grasped
the understanding that it was through liberty, the kind of liberty they had
learned through the Bible and the teaching of Jesus Christ, that mankind would
be happy and prosperous.
As it is with individuals and
with nations, we can become broken and as the song Keep Making Me – Sidewalk Prophets
inspires, there is always the need to be remade. In the process, let us never
tire of doing what is good.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live
your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in faith as you
were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. - Colossians 2:6-7
As crystalized in the post “Living Out the Truth”, the hardest part of a
faith journey is to live out our faith in our daily lives. Let us be grateful
today that a sustaining faith is possible if there is a connection to the Vine.
A connection to the Vine gives us what is needed to not only believe in the
Gospel message but to share about God’s reliable principles that have
persevered throughout history.
This day with God, benefit
yourself and also lead others to the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit by
first believing in the Truth and then living it out on a daily basis. Here is
today’s video to inspire: Walk by Faith
– Jeremy Camp.
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the
teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. – 2
The thoughts brought out in the
post “Learn and Apply the Principles”
were inspired by the study of Paul teaching the Thessalonians. We not only have
the advantage of history to look back on but can now read what is stated in the
Bible and know it has come about.
Even in the area of science,
what was written in the Bible has come to pass. Areas such as dealing with
stars, the ocean, and how the earth is shaped. What was not known by humanity
at the time the words were written have since been proven to be true.
Cheer up today and receive this
inspirational video Solid as the Rock by
Avalon and know that the truths found in the Bible are indeed solid as a
Although the issues may be
different, we also face complexities today. The great benefit of technology is
to simplify task so we can spend more time doing the things that are most important
But the challenge is to balance
everything so that the most important task are accomplished. Therefore, there
is a great need to study our priorities; go
after what is most important and then like the domino effect, our items on
the task list start to fall one after another.
This day will be amazing because
of who God is and who you are; an important name in history – one of His
children. To get on the right track toward those important tasks today, here is
an inspirational video: How You Live –
Point of Grace.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on
earth. - Colossians 3:2
Most of the time, we may go
through life always in a hurry rather than slowing down and taking in spiritual
thoughts. Instead, we can take some time to think about how amazing God has
made this world. We can take in a brilliant sunrise or beautiful sunset and
bathe in the warmth of His sunshine.
