Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

His Name’s Sake

Morning Thought: “For your name’s sake you will lead me and guide me” (Ps 31:3). The responsibility for your life is the Lord’s. He leads—not based on your works, but because you are his. It’s for his name’s sake that he guides you. Too many times we think our future is up to us. No! It’s up to him. This is no excuse for laziness. Yet, all he asks is your simple trust, the committing of your spirit to him. Out of this trust, carry out his Word. It’s not as complicated as we make it.

God’s Got Your Back

Morning Thought: Abraham journeyed by faith, yet fear was still in his heart. Fear didn’t disqualify him, nor did God stop his loving guidance. However, the Lord wanted to remove his fears. Fear led Abraham to deceive Pharaoh, making the Egyptians angry. Amazingly, God still had Abraham’s back. While God is working in you, excavating the dirt out of your life, he still fights on your behalf. Even though your faith is not perfect, his faithfulness is. You can read the whole story in Genesis 12:10-20. “But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife” (‭‭Genesis‬ ‭12:17‬, NASB‬‬).

Designed for a Purpose

Morning Thought: God designed you to be his temple. And the purpose of the Lord’s temple is to be filled with his glory. Prepare the way for the glory to fill you. Consecrate yourself. Then ask for nothing less than his fullness. It is his glory that transforms your life. “…The singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: ‘He is good; his love endures forever.’ Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God” (2 Chronicles 5:13-14, NIV).

Deal Swiftly & Strongly

Morning Thought: Deal swiftly and strongly with sin in your heart. If you don’t, the thing will spread, affecting and infecting others. Like Phinehas, pierce it straight through with prayer and the power of God’s Word. Especially get rid of offence towards brothers and sisters. Little things can grow big in no time. Today, may you have eyes to see and strength to act against all that would keep you from the fullness of the Father’s will. “When Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, saw this, he left the assembly, took a spear in his hand and followed the Israelite into the tent. He drove the spear into both of them, right through the Israelite man and into the woman’s stomach. Then the plague against the Israelites was stopped” (Numbers‬ ‭25:7-8‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

The Paradox of Freedom

Morning Thought: The Bible is full of paradoxes, seeming contradictions that can only be understood by God’s Spirit. The wise and learned stumble over these stones, but children of God find their foundation in them. For example, you have been set free by Jesus Christ, but that freedom is for the purpose of serving one another. “I thought freedom was people serving me?” No! Freedom is serving others in love. How can you serve today? How can you take the burden of stress off another? “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love” (‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:13,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

The Mysterious Man

Morning Thought: The cross of Jesus is the basis on which you receive God’s grace. Imagine you were a slave being sold to the highest bidder. The worst taskmaster in town was offering the highest price for you. Then a mysterious man shows up. He says, “Whatever the taskmaster offered, I will double it. More than that, I will give everything for that person.” The mysterious man wins, and then tells you, “I’m setting you free. Live a life of love and peace.” That mysterious man is Jesus and when he died on the cross, he gave everything to set you free from the slavery of sin and death. Walk free because he paid the highest price. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us – for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’” (Galatians‬ ‭3:13,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).
