Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

After the Fire Falls

Morning Thought: It’s after the fire falls that the fight begins. And it’s at this time that we often feel fatigued. After the fire fell, Elijah said he had enough. He asked God to take his life. But the Lord spoke to him to arise and eat. Don’t stay down. Watch that your feelings don’t take over. Arise from your depression and eat God’s Word, your source of strength. Run into the Lord’s stronghold rather than run away. You’ll find God’s got your back. “The angel of the LORD came again a second time and touched him and said, ‘Arise, eat, because the journey is too great for you’” (‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭19:7‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

Looking to Move?

Vintage Morning Thought: Where would you like to live? Some want to live by the shore, others in a quiet country cottage. You may long to escape to an island or explore Africa’s jungles. But the best place to live is Wisdom’s house. In Proverbs, Solomon describes two houses, each advertising for new residents. Both wisdom and folly want to host you. One will raise you up, the other will drag you down. Here’s the thing: you can’t bounce from one house to another. Wisdom only takes permanent residents. “Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars..she calls from the tops of the heights of the city: ‘Come, eat of my food and drink of the wine I have mixed. Forsake your folly and live, and proceed in the way of understanding'” (Proverbs 9:1, 3, 5-6, NASB).

H2O

Morning Thought: It’s easy to muddy the waters and make faith complicated. Walking with God is as simple and pure as H20. What do I mean? Hear to Obey. Hear God, but not just surface hearing; let his Word penetrate your heart. And then obey. Do what Jesus says. When you hear and obey, rivers of living water will flow from deep within you. You’ll be refreshed and others too. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭7:24‬, NASB‬‬).

Two People in Prayer

Morning Thought: Two people in prayer have more power than two hundred in parliament. Yesterday, I had the blessing of praying with another pastor at our centre in the city. While praying I could sense the presence of God in a powerful way and felt the angels of God ascending and descending on us. I was reminded that prayer is where the real power is to change lives and nations. It’s through prayer that we exercise Christ’s authority as his ambassadors. Jesus said, “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew‬ ‭18:19-20,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

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).
