Invasion of Light

Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

Why Faith?

Morning Thought: Why is faith so important to God? Why did Jesus continually call us to believe? It’s because God’s ultimate desire is a real relationship with you. Trust is the foundation of true friendship. When you don’t trust someone your relationship breaks down. Without trust, relationships become a mere facade. The Lord wants a relationship with you, an authentic and intimate one. And throughout history God has proved himself faithful. You can trust him with your life. “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

The Telephone Game

Morning Thought: Watch out that your faith is not built on ‘Chinese Whispers.’ Do you remember this game when you were young? Different cultures call it different things. In the US we call it the ‘Telephone Game’. A person is given an orginal message and whispers it in another’s ear. Each person relays the message like a chain, whispering it to the next one. The last person then speaks the message out loud and the room bursts out in laughter. Why? The final message is nothing like the original. The original message is the Word of God, Scripture, spoken by the Father’s mouth. Base your faith on the source, God himself and his written Word. Then your faith will be solid. “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:17‬, NASB‬‬).

Purity

Morning Thought: This evening begins our Purity Women’s Conference. As it happens, this morning I read the story of how God brought Isaac and Rebekah together. That’s the best way for a relationship to be formed: the Lord guiding and joining two people together. I also observed that the devil wants to rob women and men of their identity by stealing their purity. It’s purity that makes you beautiful. The good news is that whatever your past, the blood of Jesus can make you pure again. Receive his cleansing and live a different standard than the game of thrones. “Behold Rebekah…The girl was very beautiful, a virgin, and no man had had relations with her; and she went down to the spring and filled her jar and came up”‭‭ (Genesis‬ ‭24:15-16‬, ‭NASB‬).

New Hope

Morning Thought: Today I read about the Lord overthrowing Sodom and its surrounding cities. I was intrigued that on the same visit, just before God’s judgment, he promised Isaac—a message of hope, laughter and joy. God was (and still is) many steps ahead of evil. He first plants the new seed of life before removing the fruitless tree of death. It’s through Isaac that Jesus came. Yes, men are sinners, but God’s mercy triumphs over his judgment. Run to his mercy and you’ll be filled with his joy. “Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son” (Genesis‬ ‭18:14, NASB‬‬).

The Detangler

Morning Thought: When I was young I’d often bring badly tangled knots to my mom. I couldn’t untangle them, but she was an expert at making cords and string straight again. Sometimes your life or situation is unnervingly tangled. You try and try, but you can’t straighten things out. But the Lord is the master at detangling mess. Give your life and stress to him, and watch him work. “Cast your burden upon the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken” (Ps. 55:22).
