Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

Month: July, 2017

Enjoy God

Morning Thought: The Word of God calls you to endure. But often we misinterpret what this means. Today, Anna & I celebrate eighteen years of marriage. I did not have to endure our relationship—it's been a great joy. What we did have to endure was the battles that came against us and our family. In the same way, you don't endure God, his Word and his people. Spending time with Jesus, hearing his Word and fellowshipping with his people is your greatest joy. What you do endure and resist is the evil one trying to steal your joy. The Lord brings you greater joy as each day passes; he even makes the bitter sweet. Enjoy God. “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”‭ (‭Philippians‬ ‭4:4,‬ ‭NIV‬).

The Marvel of Being Madly in Love

Morning Thought: How can you stand through temptations and trials? How can you make it through the wilderness? You stand by leaning, leaning on the Lord. You are his beloved and he longs to be yours. The people who make it are the ones madly in love. Jon Thurlow sings: "I know the end of the story, I'll come up from the wilderness, leaning on my Beloved." When these words describe you, the angels and saints will marvel: "Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?" (‭‭Song of Solomon‬ ‭8:5‬, NASB‬‬).

What are you Pursuing?

Morning Thought: There are many pursuits in life. At the bottom is the pursuit of pleasure and personal advancement. More noble, is the pursuit of a great cause, such as national security or the abolition of poverty. But nothing compares to the pursuit of the Kingdom and its King. There is no higher cause; nothing greater can surpass it. When everything else dissolves, the Kingdom will still stand. Those who sought the Kingdom first will be rewarded. What are you pursuing today? "Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations" (Psalms‬ ‭145:13‬‬).

Life’s Stages

Morning Thought: Stand firm through the stages of life. Every stage brings its own struggles. When you've overcome one area, a new set of challenges await. The temptations of a young man of God are different than an older one. Nonetheless, they are temptations. But always remember, God's joy and goodness will outshine the assaults. His people are a blessed people. “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle…How blessed are the people who are so situated; how blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!” (Psalms‬ ‭144:1, 15‬, ‭NASB‬‬).

It’s Not the End

Morning Thought: Your heavenly Father does not want to leave you in a weakened and defeated state. Remember the cross was not the end of Jesus’ story. Three days later came the resurrection, sealing his victory and ours. When God’s writing your story weakness is turned to strength and loss is converted into triumph. Let the Lord strengthen you today. It’s not the end; it’s the beginning of life eternal. “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you; Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬‬).
