One Desire

Psa 27_4

“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4). What is your one desire? For David, it was to dwell on the wonderful features of God. He wanted to dwell in the presence of God. Do you have that singleness of purpose? Is God the one thing you desire? We can’t be at church 24/7, but we can start each day gazing upon the beauty of God and meditating on His word. Be still and listen.

Walk In Truth

Psa 86_11A

Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.” (Psalm 86:11) Can we truly learn all the ways of God and walk in the truth, when in our hearts we are pulled in so many ways by the world? Many Christians put on a good act in front of others, however, in their heart, there is division. We cannot walk in God’s truth if our hearts and minds are scattered. Jesus said this way “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment” (Mark 12:30). Focus on God today and put Him first in everything situation, and fear His name.

Fear Not

2 Tim 1_7A

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7). Paul was writing this to encourage Timothy, a young preacher. He was saying to him then and us today, don’t be afraid of this world and what it will do to us. Fear is not part of the Christian’s vocabulary. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but he put in us the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, He gives us the power to overcome, love for all people, and a sound mind that is full of peace in the raging storm. Isaiah wrote; “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10). Trust God, rely on Him and His Word.

Ye Are Not Your Own

1 cor 6_19-20B

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Think about what that verse is truly saying. The Holy Spirit lives in you! He is a gift to us from God.  Since the Holy Spirit indwells us we belong to God. We equally belong to Him because we have been bought with a price. Jesus paid the price with His blood and redeemed you. Do you demonstrate evidence of the Spirit living in you? By your faith, do people know you belong to God? In the book of James, we read “shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works” (James 2:18). Everyone does not show faith the same way, but everyone who has faith shows it. Show your faith in God today and let the world know you belong to God.

Personal Reflection

Phil 2_12A

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12). What did Paul mean by the phrase “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling?” Notice he did not say work for. Every day, we need to allow the Holy Spirit to do some introspection within our hearts, to make certain they we are indeed in Christ as evidence by our daily living. We work out our salvation by walking with the Holy Spirit, as He guides us in the will of God. Are you walking in God’s will? Is the light of Christ that is shining in us, “so shining before men, that they are seeing our good works and glorifying the Father Who is in heaven?” Do some personal reflection right now to see exactly how it is between Him and you as you seek to work out your salvation.

Time With God

Isa 50_4AThe Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.” (Isaiah 50:4). The prophet Isaiah seemed to spend his early mornings with the Lord. He said that God awakened him so to hear Him and give him an learned tongue with which to speak. God has chosen us who are His to share His Word. All we need is to be willing to listen, a heart that is receptive, and a tongue to proclaim what He has said. Jesus said, “Ye shall be my witnesses.” (Acts 1:8). Spend time with the Lord today in His Word and in prayer. Share with those around you what He has taught you.

You Are Someone Special

Psa 147_4

He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” (Psalm 147:4). When I read this verse, I see the awesomeness of God. If the stars are so important that God has given them names, just think how much more important you are to Him and how much He cares for you. God’s Word tells us to “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7). God loves you and cares for you. So remember, in God’s eyes you are someone special.
