We Do Not Walk in Darkness

We Do Not Walk in Darkness

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.‘- John 8:12

God loved us so much that He gave His one and only Son, Jesus. When we believe and receive this gift, we are born again. In that moment, the Holy Spirit pours God’s love into our hearts, and we begin to discover His unconditional, immeasurable, and unbreakable love. We love God because He first loved us, and we share His love with others, even our enemies.

Through salvation, we receive eternal life, the very life of Christ. The Holy Spirit makes Emmanuel, God with us, a reality in our lives. As we grow in our new identity and abilities in Him, the abundant life He gives us helps us walk victoriously. Jesus is alive, and so are we, forever!

Jesus is not only the Way, the Truth, and the Life; He is the light of the world. The Holy Spirit guides us to follow Him, and with the light of life, we do not walk in darkness. When darkness threatens, we can rebuke its lies, knowing it has no dominion over us. We receive His love, life, and light,  from glory to glory!

The Lord Enlarges Your Path

The Lord Enlarges Your Path

You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, So my feet did not slip. – Ps. 18:35-36

Sometimes we may feel as though the rug is being pulled out from under our feet. This causes us to question where we stand. In those times, we wonder if we will slip and fall. Sorrow fills our heart; a sense of heaviness envelops our being, and we pray fervently for God to come to our rescue.

Time after time, the Lord enlarges our path so we do not slip. This enlargement defies the tight place we may think we are in and makes way for God’s delivering power. He makes a way out of all troubling circumstances. We may almost slip and fall, almost give up, almost breakdown, yet God comes through with His amazing grace. The foundation on which we stand is strengthened and enlarged by the Christ we believe in—our sure foundation.

When we almost fall, Christ sustains us to the utmost. He upholds all with His right hand and He never permits the righteous to be moved. He delivers us out of all our afflictions. Let’s pray, believing He will sustain us and keep us secure in every place, from glory to glory! 

What Do You Remember?

What Do You Remember?

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Ps. 20:7

After helping her friend many times financially, there came a time when Brenda couldn’t. When that happened, her friend became angry and said, why don’t you ever help me? These crushing words pierced Brenda’s heart. How could one “no” remove all the “yeses” of the past? She forgave her friend, remembering her loving and giving is to be unconditional, like God’s.

People might forget what we have done for them, take it for granted, or even return our gestures of love with contempt. What we do, we do as unto the Lord regardless of the reactions of people. We take our hurt to the Lord and receive His comfort and healing. Most importantly, we watch our own heart and appreciate who others are in our lives and what they do for us.

Above all, we never forget all the Lord has done for us! Remembering how the Lord has brought us out of difficult situations strengthens us to trust Him to do so, again and again. While we know some of what the Lord has done, much we don’t know until after the fact, if at all. Recalling the goodness and faithfulness of God helps us to praise Him, from glory to glory!

How Do You See Yourself?

How Do You See Yourself?

There we saw the giants’ (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); ‘and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.’ – Numbers 13:33

When the spies looked at the Promise Land, they encountered a land flowing with milk and honey and brought back beautiful, huge grapes. The people rejoiced in seeing the grapes and concluded it was a beautiful and fruitful land. The report of ten of the spies said there were giants in the land, ignored the fruits, and saw themselves as grasshoppers compared to them. 

Do we see ourselves as timid grasshoppers or capable giants? When we see ourselves as grasshoppers, others do as well. Our actions show others our self-perception, which either helps or hinders the confidence we portray that we have in God. What are we saying we are? We never should see ourselves as grasshoppers, but as spiritual giants in God. 

Is there a problem we face that appears to be a giant in our land? Compared to the ultimate giant Christ Jesus, who dwells within us — they are the grasshoppers. In Christ, we conquer giants and do not let them subdue us. We yield to the Lord and step forth in victory over any opposition, from glory to glory

What Are We Mindful Of?

What Are We Mindful Of?

But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.’ – Mat. 16:23 

The Greek word for mindful is phroneo, to exercise the mind; that is, entertain or have a sentiment or opinion; to be disposed in a certain direction, and to intensively interest ourselves in a matter. When we meditate upon what we see in the natural, we magnify its potential impact. If we over-think our ways, and the ways of others, we become fearful and quench the flow of the mind of Christ in our lives.

When Jesus rebuked the enemy working through Peter, He told him he was being mindful of the things of men, not of God. Our adversary tries to battle us in our thoughts the same way. What are we mindful of? The more we are mindful of the spiritual realm, the more we can walk victoriously in the natural realm. 

Our aim should always to be mindful of the things of God. Reading and speaking forth the Word of God helps us exercise our mind. Let’s press through until we are disposed to think toward the things of the Spirit, more than of the flesh. Our walk is by faith, not by sight. We do not focus too much on the human aspect, but on the spiritual, from glory to glory

The Flow of Rivers of Living Water

The Flow of Rivers of Living Water

 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.-John 7:37-38 KJV

What a promise: a flow of rivers of living water! As fiery darts come against us to stop us from going forth, the Lord increases His anointing. The Lord is working powerfully, whether or not it is visible. All we can do is focus on His presence, by faith, and thirst for more. He quenches our thirst as we come to Him and drink. We do so as we fellowship with Him.

Placing a clamp on a hose can stop the water flow, but it cannot make it disappear. Once the limitation is taken away, water rushes out with tremendous force. Often, it is not until a clamp is removed that we realize there was one. It happens as we go with the flow, believing, expecting, and resting. As we follow Him, He flows through us. 

We pray for the Holy Spirit to remove the clamps and trust His power is greater than any clamp! Let’s not look at the clamps, but trust His flowing. An Unstoppable flow of God’s glory! Let’s lay a hold of the reality of the flow of the spirit of Christ in and through us, from glory to glory!
