Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

Jesus Happens

Morning Thought: When we started our Jesus Unit semester in late January, most of the students struggled with praying out loud. A few months later and things are much different. On Monday, everyone was praying, prophesying, sharing verses and visions. It was hard to get a word in because the river was flowing so strongly through each one. It kept on going till near midnight when I had to wrap things up. What happened that night? Jesus. Jesus is what happened. Let Jesus happen in your life. It doesn’t matter who you are, Jesus wants to flow through you for the Father’s glory. “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong” (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:27‬, ‭NIV‬‬).

The Day’s Coming

Morning Thought: Live in light of the day of Christ. Right now, the world is living in the night. But there’s a day coming, the Lord’s day, when all darkness will vanish and the temporal things will fade. Chase after the things of this life and you’ll be left with eternal regret. Stuff, thrills, looks and likes will all be a pile of ashes one day. One thing will last: God’s work in and through you. “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:17,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

Arise & Shine

Vintage Morning Thought: God is waiting for every member of his family to arise and shine his light. You are valuable; You have a purpose. As you arise, people from every walk of life will be drawn to Christ’s light. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Isaiah 60:1-3 NIV)

It’s Time to Fight Back

Morning Thought: God gave Israel the Promised Land, but they still had to fight for it. God has also given you promises. They are yours, yet you have to wrestle for them. Is the enemy squatting on your land? It’s time to fight back. I’m not talking about a physical battle, but a spiritual one. Pick up your sword and spear. Put on your armour. Take your stand. Be like Caleb. At eighty-five, he took his stand and drove the giants from his land. “Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim [giants] were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said” ‭‭(Joshua‬ ‭14:12‬, NKJV‬‬).

Develop a Strong Core

Morning Thought: Years ago the Council planted numerous young trees along a neighbourhood road. The trees were weak and vulnerable. Vandals soon came, ripping them out and breaking their twig-like trunks. When you’re young in the Lord you’re like these young trees. It’s critical that you let God develop deep roots and a strong core within you. Let him be your gardener. Without him, you’ll be easy prey. But if you have the Lion of Judah pacing around you, scoundrels will easily be scared away. “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 the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬, ‭NIV‬‬).

On the Edge

Morning Thought: The internal battle is the biggest before the breakthrough. Remember the Israelites in the wilderness. God brought them to the edge of the Promised Land and commissioned them to take it. They were almost there, yet that’s when they fought with God the most. They were worse than a two year old having a tantrum. They grumbled, complained and wept. However, if they would have believed like Joshua and Caleb, they would have taken hold of God’s promise. Don’t listen to your feelings or emotions—listen to the Lord. “But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it” ‭‭(Numbers‬ ‭14:24‬, NIV‬‬).
