There were 3 men described as “devout” in the New Testament. Each story was about how God moved powerfully in their lives, honoring their devotion. Be encouraged that as we determine to be devout in our relationship with God He will use us and move through us in the same ways. Scripture: Acts 8:1-3, Luke 2:25-35, Acts 10:1-6
The church has a destination and all the tools needed to arrive successfully, but the priority is big buildings and successful men instead of souls and knowing God and His plan for the end times. God showed these things by the mouth of all His prophets, so the church should know the plan because Jesus opened The Book.
God has a purpose in all our lives. Sometimes we go through really hard things to either prepare us for His use or so that those around us can see Him working through our circumstances. In the midst of the devil’s lying voice we need to remain steadfast and hold to the promises of God, trusting that He has a plan we cannot yet see.
The Laws of God are not only “shall nots”. They are also Divine proclamations about what God will do. The Book of Genesis contains revelation all the way to the end of time. If we understand the prophesies that God made in the Books of the Law, we’ll understand the plan He has for the church in this hour.
When Satan wants to buffet us he has to get between us and the power of God. We are born again of incorruptible seed. In order to war with us, Satan has to be able to bypass the seed that God planted in us. That seed originated in Jesus and has been passed to us – a seed that cannot fail. The life of that seed alters everything in our life. The devil wants us to forget…
Between the promise and the realization of the promise is a rest. The Apostle John tells us that in right fellowship with Jesus, we have the ability to behold Him, to touch Him, to hear and see Him. In that right fellowship we learn that we can rest in who He is, and not in who We are. Right fellowship assures us that He is our Potter and He is pleased with His work.…
As we look at the relationship between Isaac and his first son, Ishmael, we are reminded that God does not allow the works of the flesh to supersede His promises.
If we base our understanding of God’s promise to have a spotless bride on the knowledge of good and evil, we will end up forsaking His way of keeping that promise and set about to accomplish it in our own strength because it takes faith to believe that God can really conform us to His image on the earth. God’s salvation is about amnesty for the world, an indwelling Lord…
Isaac inherited God’s covenant promise from his father. He also inherited Abraham’s wealth. He was given everything; he didn’t even choose his own wife! Yet Isaac’s role in the kingdom was far from easy. His call was to hold onto God’s promise without seeing it come to pass.
Abraham was God’s “third beginning” in Genesis, a man called out of idol worship to know and serve the Most High. By considering Abraham’s life and his relationship with God, we can find much to encourage and challenge us. The stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob can provide us with understanding about our own walks with the Lord.
