John 4:34 “‘My food,’ said Jesus, ‘is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.‘”
Allow the purpose that God has given you to sustain you. Take as much pleasure in the inner man, my brethern, than in of the outer man. Have your fill in God’s will, today, and watch it make whole your wounded soul! For “the will of God will not take you where the grace of God cannot keep you.” Yes, His grace is sufficient and His will better than any of our plans. :)
Matthew 16:23 “Jesus turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.‘”
The adversary often uses those closest to us as a means to deter us from our purpose. However, when Satan is using our brethern as a mouthpiece, instead of throwing them away, call him out. Tell ol’ satan: Get thee behind me! Let nothing or no one stand between you and your cross, today.
Isaiah 4:5-6 “Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.”
God’s protection functions in any condition. He’s able in the dry season and able in the down pour. So come what may; God’s got you covered!!!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:”
EVERY purpose in life has its own season. Like Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, life is always subject to change. So though this may not be your season, my brethern, continue to build your inner man by trading in your pain for joy and by being the free agent in Christ that you are. Cause truth be told, “You win pennants in the off season.” – Earl Weaver 🙋
Matthew 15:14 “‘Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.‘”
Woe it be unto us to follow anyone who does not have Jesus in their sight-line. Leave them; the Scribes, Pharisees and unspiritual beings. If they take offense; so be it. Follow purpose only, my brethern, for God did not open our blinded eyes for us to allow His vision to fall into the pits. No, be purpose-driven with tunnel vision for the vision. :)
Deuteronomy 7:19 “You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the Lord your God brought you out. The Lord your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.”
Allow your own Egypt to speak to you, today. Let it be the assurance of just what our God can do. For, surely, the hand that once delivered you can still deliver. Don’t let the tarry fool you, our God will do just what He said He will do.
Psalm 69:13-14 “But I pray to you, LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.”
If this is your prayer, today, know that the Master of the Sea hears your despairing cry. Even if far from the peaceful shore, God can STILL lift us from the waters. He’s just waiting on us to stop looking for help elsewhere.
*Only God is our sure salvation*
