Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

Ask for Rain

Morning Thought: It’s time to ask for the rain. It’s the only way the harvest will grow. What rain am I talking about? The rain of God’s Spirit. This rain will saturate every thirsty soul. What harvest am I referring to? The harvest of souls and disciples entering and growing in the Kingdom. “Ask rain from the LORD at the time of the spring rain—The LORD who makes the storm clouds; and He will give them showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man” (Zechariah 10:1, NASB).

How to be Led

Morning Thought: Don’t be led by signs, confirmations, circumstances or feelings. Instead, be led by God’s Spirit and Word. Isaac was tempted to be led by his circumstances and feelings. There was a famine in the land and he wanted to escape to Egypt (Genesis 26). But God said, “Stay in the place I show you.” In faith, Isaac obeyed, and in just one year reaped hundredfold. You see, God knows the end from the beginning, and it’s only through knowing him personally that you will be properly led. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge [better said, KNOW] Him, And He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

The State of our Youth

Morning Thought: Today, I’m thinking about the state of our youth in America, Australia and throughout the world. We don’t teach them wisdom, but we expect them to be wise. We instruct them to memorise facts, but we fail to instruct them on character. We can’t expect to reap where we have not sown. We’ve thrown God out of school, but we get angry when God doesn’t protect our schools. When we lose the fear of the Lord (reverence of God) we’ve lost everything. It’s time we stop this systemic hypocrisy. If we don’t, things are just going to get worse. But if we humble ourselves and return to the Lord, we will make a tangible and measurable change. As Paul said, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man [as well as a nation, family or marriage] reaps what he sows” (Galatians 6:7, NIV).

It’s Time to Arise

Morning Thought: In light of Billy Graham’s departure into glory, I’m reminded of these words spoken to Joshua: “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel” (‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:2,‬ ‭NASB‬‬). Many of the burning and bright lights of last generation have passed on. However, the everlasting Kingdom continues. It’s now time for us to arise and possess what God has promised. We can’t look to someone else, except Jesus. The torch has been handed to us—it’s time to run. “Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses” (Joshua 1:3).

The Unbreakable Broken Ones

Morning Thought: Be broken before God, but unbreakable before the forces of darkness. Often we get this confused. We get pushed around by demons and resist God. That’s a recipe for disaster. Instead, submit to God and then you will be able to resist the devil. Stand as a priest before God and as a king against the hordes of hell. “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (‭‭James‬ ‭4:7‬, NASB‬‬).

Every Cirumstance

Morning Thought: You need strength for the difficult times, but also strength for the good times. Think about David. Once God’s Word was fulfilled in his life and his kingdom was secure, he became complacent. That’s when he comitted adultery and murder. Good times can be deceptive because you think you have arrived. But really the journey continues. We can’t settle for this age; we live for the One who is to come. Whatever time you are in, seek his strength so that your life will honour him. “In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:12b-13, NASB).
