30 DAYS OF READING, HEARING & SPEAKING GODS TRUTH; I WILL FOLLOW, DAY 30

30 days of reading, hearing, and speaking God’s truth into our lives; I will Follow!

Welcome to day 30, our last day together.

Thank you all so much for being part of this journey. My spirit has been renewed, my hunger intensified, and excitement restored. I have once again been reminded that His mercies are new every morning! My hope is that you feel the same!

Today’s topic is more of an action, a commitment…….

I will Follow…..

Our time is our greatest commodity. We only have so much. It cannot be purchased. Once it is spent, it is gone. My biggest fear in life, is to look back and see that I misused it, wasted it. My biggest fear in life, is to regret having the courage to say YES to Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the life! He is worthy of our YES!

There is no greater reward than Him. Therefore, the best decision we can make in regards to our greatest asset; time, is to give it to Him. 

Verse of the day!

Matthew 16:24

As we spend time with our Savior, He changes us. He begins to lead us, giving us opportunities big and small, to say YES.

When I look at the many heroic men of the bible, they all have one thing in common. They ALL said YES! They all chose to follow God’s lead. These men made the decision to exercise their faith, to trust not in the seen, but the unseen.

Victory and blessing in our lives always points back to obedience to God.

The Bible says,

and you return to the LORD your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul according to all that I command you today, you and your sons (Deuteronomy 30:2).

Then the LORD your God will prosper you abundantly in all the work of your hand, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your cattle and in the produce of your ground, for the LORD will again rejoice over you for good, just as He rejoiced over your fathers; if you obey the LORD your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law, if you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 30:9-10).

God longs to pour out His blessing on us. He looks for those of us who are willing. His desire is to bless His people, set us apart. He is looking to use any willing vessel (you and me), to be witnesses to the world of who HE is. He wants to demonstrate to the world through his people that He is the ONLY MOST HIGH GOD. His purpose is to bring his lost creation back to Himself. He does this everyday through those that are willing.

God created Adam and Eve for His pleasure. He blessed them abundantly. It was their disobedience that brought about sin. Which tells us, that obedience is very important to Him. And without it, we too, will fall prey to sin.

Just a few of the men that were not perfect, but followed God’s lead!

Moses, Joseph, Joshua, Noah, Solomon, Esther, Abraham, Jacob and many more.

God longs us to bless us! His greatest desire is to teach us, change us, and help us say Yes to all the things He has purposed for our lives!

Join me in saying YES! Join me in praying that God would help us BE ALL that created us to be!

Thanks again dear friends for being here the last 30 days! You have been a blessing to me!

30 DAYS OF READING, HEARING & SPEAKING GODS TRUTH; GODS GIFTS, DAY 24

30 days of reading, hearing, and speaking God’s truth into our lives; God’s gifts.

Welcome to day 24! 

Gods gifts…….

Let’s jump on in! Verse of the day!

2 Corinthians 3:5

Oh man you guys, I am so excited about today’s topic! Today, I want to share a quote. This one thrills my heart! Here’s why………

quote

As we get to know Christ and become more like Him we discover our true identity. He reveals to us the person He created us to be; the gifts He has given us. In Christ we are a new being, the old person begins to fade. The things the world has told us about ourselves melts away in light of who we are in Christ. We become what we behold. As we behold Christ our true identity is revealed because we were created to bear His image, not that of the world.

If we truly want to know ourselves, our gifts, our specific purpose and identity, it is found in Christ alone!

All the scriptures we are going to look at today tell us, that the God we serve is an intimate God. These verses show us that He cares for you in me in a very specific way. He created us unique, special, and for a purpose!

God’s word says,

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13).

It doesn’t get more intimate than that!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

This verse tells me God is specific!

Romans 12 tell us that we are all given special gifts!

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,  so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;  he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

Why does God give each one of us special gifts?

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all ( 1 Corinthians 12:7).

Christ draws us, changes us, and reveals to us our true identity in Him. He asks,

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God (1 Peter 4:10).

There is no greater adventure than to find our true identity in Christ. There is nothing more thrilling to man’s heart, than to let God lead. 

One of my favorite promises!

In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:6).

Together, let’s press in. Let’s sit quietly before the Lord. He longs to reveal Himself. He longs to fill us up!
