LORD’S DAY “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/27/10 From Ken Smith<><
This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24, NLT)
Be Your Best Today
When we read about the heroes of faith, their lives seem so exciting, but the truth is that most of their days were routine. Moses experienced one miracle after another, but those involved only a few days of his life. Most of our days will be ordinary days with some exciting days. If you live from big event to big event, waiting for something exciting to keep you encouraged, you’re going to be disappointed. Learn to enjoy where God has you right now. This is the day the Lord has made. It may be routine, but when you do the ordinary with a good attitude, that’s getting you prepared for the new things God has in store. It’s being faithful day in and day out, doing the right thing when the wrong thing is happening, staying in faith when we’re not getting our way. You won’t be promoted if you’re not being your best where God has you right now.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for this day that You have made. Thank You that I can be faithful in the ordinary and routine, knowing that You are preparing me for the new things You have in store. I’m going to keep being my best, serving, giving, and loving right where I am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Each morning I wake up to a new day. A BIG GIFT OF ANOTHER DAY. As my age truly a gift of HIS grace. First I am thankful that I can be forgiven of all of my yesterdays as I check in with the Holy Spirit and view them objectively as God see them and come to true repentance. Second, I don’t have to be concerned about tomorrow as God has instructed me to concentrate only upon today. Yes, I do have a desk Calendar to mark off what is scheduled for me to do tomorrow. But then I can forget it and not be concerned about missing the date tomorrow. Third, is the fun part in seeking the Holy Spirit in sharing with me what HE has in mind for my day, today.
So now I have the day in front of me and am sitting at my desk writing to you. I have had a nice breakfast, So a little into a Sr. nap (food coma) but feel your need for some encouragement. You see, life is a paradox. You have to give it away in order to save it. You have to go down in humility to be lifted up in God’s Glory. What you plant is what you harvest. With out faith it is impossible to please God. Faith is the substance and the evidence of things hoped for and not yet see. We are somewhat like batteries, we have a certain charge but in time it dissipates on it’s own and does nothing unless installed in something productive. And even then if installed backwards it will short out what ever, even if the other batteries are correctly installed. But when charged individually and placed in series or parallel they can be a mighty source of power for the Kingdom of God.. John 17:20-22 All power in heaven and earth was given to Jesus and then given to HIS Church. Not individually but collectively. In other words, It only works out of True Unity in Love. You can not expect the car to run right without all of the needed parts put together in the right order. There is but one church of Christ Jesus as LORD and all who totally make HIM to be LORD and in unity submit to HIS Commandments will see HIM in all of HIS GLORY, Eph. 4:11-16
You have been taught that it is OK and even expected to come to a place to agree to disagree. A dear long time brother in Christ and I have a disagreement as to how Sanctification works. He believes as I was also taught that it was a gift (To Make HOLY) as an act of faith to receive as in finding Jesus as LORD. I have now come to feel that Sanctification is a continuing work of the Holy Spirit. Where we learn to have victory over our old nature and Put on Christ in our new nature. That Sanctification is a process to make us a Holy people, really. So now we are at a point of working on this in LOVE together until we see it as God has designed it to be. Or we walk away in agreeing to disagree and continue to divided HIS Church. If you look around, pride is everywhere in working on making divisions. Divide and Conquer, the enemy motto. Goggle says that there are now over 30,000. Christian denominations and such. No wonder there is no power like in the Book of Acts in the Church today. No wonder the lost are confused and lost in the religious hypocrisy..
So I hope to open this blog into a place of discussion based solely on the Word of God to limit confusion. And with and open forum for your questions that we in LOVE may come into the UNITY that Jesus prayed that we would have in John 17. That in loving obedience and humility we can find that Spiritual Unity that allows the Holy Spirit to help those of us who are 100% serious of HIS LORDSHIP OVER US. And we can have faith to experience the day that the Lord has made and deeply enjoy and rejoice in it. God’s supernatural intervention always brings Joy along with it.
