THE PROMISE OF GOD'S PRESENCE

THE PROMISE OF GOD'S PRESENCE

by Bill Elliff January 22, 2020

The omnipresence of God is a reality (that God is everywhere all the time). “Where can I go from Thy Spirit?” David said (Psalm 139). And, since the coming of Christ and Pentecost, which was the sending of His indwelling Spirit to all who believe, the true follower of Christ is assured that Christ will never leave them nor forsake them personally. Once the Spirit comes to reside in the believing heart, He is there permanently.

But, it is possible to have our head turned by the world, the flesh, and the devil. We can quench and grieve the Spirit who lives within us. We can ignore Him or resist His leadership. If we do so, we will lose the conscious awareness of His presence. We will begin to operate on our own, not walking by the Spirit, and the results are always disastrous. We get what our humanity brings. Like an unseen guest standing in the shadows, He is still present, but not prominent.

THE EVIDENT BLESSING OF GOD

THE EVIDENT BLESSING OF GOD

by Bill Elliff January 17, 2020

This beautiful account reminds us of two very important truths. First, God will meet us where we are. When we are doubting and struggling in faith, God is gracious to come and remind us (again) of His promises. And also, God is faithful. Promises He made to your ancestors that involve you will be fulfilled! And God has rich, personal promises He longs to make and accomplish in your life if you will look to Him.

Do you desire to be successful in your daily living? Raising your family? Your work? Your whole life? The formula is simple. You don’t need another book beside the Bible. God is waiting to grant success to every man or woman who will look to Him unselfishly and give Him all the glory.

THE INTEGRITY OF GOD

THE INTEGRITY OF GOD

by Bill Elliff January 14, 2020

Our faith is not mere head knowledge, but is “walking and talking like what God says is really true” as one of my mentors, Manley Beasley used to say. Real faith is always accompanied by an action verb: Noah prepared an ark; Abraham obeyed God and went out as the Lord instructed; Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Daniel continued to pray against the world’s commands.

If we will take Him at His word, we will find Him always faithful to His Word. Our faith will grow and the world will see continued demonstrations of the reality of God.

GOD HEARS

GOD HEARS

by Bill Elliff January 10, 2020

God’s hearing is impeccable. Perfect in fact. He will hear you if you will cry to Him. And, He will answer. God heard Hagar’s affliction and told her to return to her home (which was the opposite direction). He promised to take care of her in the midst of her persecution and to bless her son.

When God responds to our affliction and answers, it may not be the answer we desire, but His directions in the midst of the problem are always right. That is why, when He speaks, we must instantly obey the promptings of His Spirit and the illumination of His Word.

GOD MEETS US WHERE WE ARE

GOD MEETS US WHERE WE ARE

by Bill Elliff January 09, 2020

We often doubt God, worrying over things which God has already revealed to us. This is one of the reasons He has given us the overabundance of promises in His Word. He invites us to go back again and again and renew our doubting hearts. Our knowing Father understands our frame and realizes that we often need multiple assurances.

Abraham needed a final push toward faith and the Great Shepherd graciously provided. God met Abraham in his faith journey where he was to take him where he needed to be. And, He will do the same for you.

THE

THE "I WILL" OF GOD

by Bill Elliff January 08, 2020

There are over 7,000 of these promises in Scripture to us! This is God’s operating system with man. He gives us a faith directive and promises the results. And, He is always faithful.

He is saying, “I WILL” to you today, if you will listen to Him through His word and follow Him in obedience, trusting in His promises. One of the greatest tragedies at the end of our lives will be to realize how much more we could have experienced of God if we had believed and obeyed our “I WILL” God.

THE OWNERSHIP OF GOD

THE OWNERSHIP OF GOD

by Bill Elliff January 07, 2020

God is not a debtor to us. We are a debtor to Him. Forever. God knows what He is doing with us and around us and with His world. He does not even owe us an explanation, although He often condescends to give us one.
