God in Full Measure

April 10, 2017

""I know that the Lord has given you the land ... For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you ... when we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath."" (Joshua 2:9-11)

There are many half-hearted Christians who are not walking in the Spirit. They bear the name of Christ, but there is no visible evidence of Him in their daily lives. Sadly, they create a negative impact for the gospel, as if being a Christian makes no real difference.

REPUTATION DISPLAYERS

But there are many authentic believers who walk out of Egypt in the power of the Spirit. They follow Christ by faith, facing Red Seas and seeing them part, enemies and seeing them fall, and needs and seeing them met by the power of God.

Such men and women are used by God to show the world who God really is. They are not creating a reputation for God, but displaying it They become the conduits for the miraculous God to be on display.

And when God is REALLY seen through a surrendered believer, or group of believers, it has a powerful effect on all who watch. For they have rarely seen God in full measure in the lives of those they know.

In each generation there are wicked rulers leading nations to do wicked things, oppressing those around them with senseless violence and evil. Hitler had his day and Stalin, and now Putin as he ravages Ukraine.

Where is God in all of this? The small, one-chapter book of Obadiah gives us the answer: God will always, ultimately judge wicked men nations. Justice wins the day. Notice God’s word through Obadiah to the wicked nation of Edom. No nation that ignores God will escape His judgment.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

June 29, 2022

Your life is made by multiple decisions. So, what do you do first as you face the choices of each day? Sadly, most of us do not do what Jehoshaphat recommended. “Please inquire FIRST for the word of the LORD.” The word “first” literally means “as the day.” It could mean “today, right now.” But it also implies “for this day, in this particular moment.”
