The Lord wants to complete His Will in your life. His good pleasure to accomplish this is through the gifts of spiritual insight and comprehension. As Paul did, I too pray a Spirit of wisdom and revelation into you today…that you may perceive His perfect Will for your life.”
Sometimes our worst enemy is our own mind. We struggle silently with our inner self…battling every negative self-image, each personal abasement, every gut wrenching dark emotion. And as we grapple with that inner self…we see that the enemy is no one else… but ourselves.
To the outside world, trusting in Jesus Christ is just plain crazy. To many people, placing your faith in the Gospel is ludicrous. But to the Believer…hope is forged, one faith-building miracle at a time. The world may shake its head in scorn at your trust…but belief in Jesus will never disappoint.
When those times come of profound sorrow, grief, and heartache, the darkness will shroud even the slightest glimmer of light from our sight. That’s when we, as the body of Believers, must support and under-gird our brothers and sisters…gently leading them from darkness into light. We need to stand in the gap for them, until they can again stand on their own.
Stand in awe of God today. Look around you…contemplate your surroundings. Draw in a deep breath and consider what He has made. The inspiration and wonder of everything around you is from His hand. Stand in awe of God.
God’s principles are right and just…for the Believer, they are not a burden, but rather a joy to follow. There is a sense of security and comfort found there…for within them, we find spiritual illumination and enlightenment.
The Law of the Lord is faultless and complete. And by walking in it, we are not only infused with new life within, but we gain insight and perception to do what is right in our daily walk.
The devil isn’t very resourceful, he likes to use the same tactics over and over again for everyone…but he makes us think that we’re the only one suffering. And this in a nut shell, is how he isolates us from others and help. The devil will whisper in our ear that whatever is happening in our life – whether it be a temptation, or illness, or mental issue – is so awful that we can’t possible tell anyone about it. So we clam up and self-isolate, afraid to share our “horrible” secret with anyone. But by doing so, the devil has us exactly where he wants us…alone and hurting. This is where the brotherhood/sisterhood of Believers come in…we are all in this thing called life together…a community of Believers that all share the same struggles and problems. For if you are brave enough to share this “terrible” secret with a trusted person…you’ll soon discover that this secret isn’t unique at all. Don’t allow the devil to isolate you from others who can come up along side to pray, share their own struggles, and encourage you in yours.
Two years ago today, I embarked on a journey with God. And over these months and years He has taken the small pittance I offer, and has multiplied it like the loaves and fishes. God has turned 1 Devotional into 664 posts. He has taken these devotionals around the world to 76 countries who are now reading His Word daily. But most of all He has been faithful, for when I started, I had no idea what I was doing…but the Lord was there every step of the way…and still is today. I would like to thank each one of you who take the time to read Safetypinlove. Thank you for your support and kind remarks. I am truly humbled and honored to be used of God. Pam
Just think what the world would be like if we all lived by this scripture. Imagine if everyone’s goal was to live a life full of humility, modesty and love for one another. It would take a ground-swell movement, with each individual determining to be a catalyst for change…would you be that person?
