Where God Dwells

God has always desired to commune with His Creation. “Where are you?” God called to a missing Adam in the cool of the day (Gen. 3:8). God inhabits the praises of his people (Ps. 22:3). God is with the humble in spirit (Isa. 57:15). He is close to those with broken heart (Ps. 34:18). Now we have gone from God dwelling around us, near us, or even by our sides, to “Christ in us, the hope of glory (Co. 1:27)!

God Can Sympathize

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin. Heb. 4:15. The shortest verse in the Bible, yet very profound is John 11:35 – Jesus wept. God, robed in flesh was moved to tears for the loss of a friend. I’m glad I serve a God of compassion and mercy who allows me to cast ALL my care upon Him!

Dining on the Divine

Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. Eze. 3:3 – God commanded Ezekiel to chow down on a Divine scroll! In God’s book are the words to eternal life. Why do we spiritually starve, when we have God’s Word that Job esteemed more than his necessary food? Taste and see that the Lord is GOOD!

Preaching in a Frying Pan

Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it…Eze. 4:3 – God called Ezekiel to preach his message to Israel into a frying pan! I know the faces of the unsaved may be intimidating when sharing the Gospel, almost like an “iron skillet,” but tell them anyway. The postage was paid at Calvary folks…you just need to deliver the mail!

A Leader Willing to be Led

And he Moses said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. Ex. 33:15 – As strong of a leader as Moses was, he was also humble enough to know that unless God carried them, their travels were destined for failure. I wonder how many burdens would be lifted and cares would be released, were we to allow God to carry us and leave his proverbial footprints in the sand of our lives?

Ready to Reap

Friends, they that wait on the Lord will renew their strength. You know why you’re so weary in well doing? You’ve forgotten who you’re waiting on! You’ve tried so long to make it on your strength; you’ve grown weary of the promise. You gave up before your reaping season even started. HE IS THE GOD OF THE HARVEST! Don’t stop sowing, don’t stop believing; your reaping season is set to ignite! Wait I say upon the Lord!

Hurt Beyond Words?

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Rom. 8:26 – Have you ever been hurt beyond words and you’re left speechless? Allow God’s Spirit to intercede through you. Those supernatural groanings will speak healing into YOUR spirit if you’ll trust God to do the speaking!

What Made Christ Weep?

What gets to the heart of God more than a broken heart? The Bible records twice that Christ wept; once for the death of a friend (John 11:35), the other for a broken relationship (Luke 19:41) between Israel and himself. Christ knew what it meant to be betrayed and denied. He came unto His own, and even they wouldn’t receive Him (John 1:11). Is your relationship current with your Savior?

No Success Without the Source

For in him we live, and move, and have our being – Acts 17:28 We all have hopes and dreams and we should. But, having those outside of God’s Divine Will is foolhardy. James teaches we “ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.” Success without the ONE who makes success possible isn’t success; it’s a ticking time bomb of misery and failure. It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.

The Power of ONE

The POWER of ONE! One bite of the fruit (Adam). One glance over the shoulder (Lot’s Wife). One strike of the rock (Moses). One haircut (Samson). One touch of the Ark (Uzzah). One lustful look at a bathing beauty (David). One selfless act at Calvary. One empty tomb. One Lord. One Faith. One baptism.
