"I am With You"

I really don't like storms nor thunder and lightning, especially when I have to drive the highways in a big truck. But recently I was forced to face my fears. I saw huge dark clouds building up in front of me. As I continued to drive I could witness spectacular thunder and lightning demonstrations to my left and to my right. Oh my was I frightened. In the midst of this massive storm building up all around me, there was no option for me; I had to continue and drive through the storm.

But my faithful LORD made a way for me and I was able to pass through the massive upheaval and get to my final destination totally unshaken, unharmed and practically without any rain fall. As I realized that He was withholding the massive rain, wind and lightning from me I begun to receive such a boldness. It was like when the Israelites had to cross the sea and the LORD made a way for them to travel on dry ground.

Once I was safe in my new home the tornado warnings and sirens went off. I could really relate to Isaiah 43:1 - 7. Our God is so faithful. He knows us and He prevents any harm to come our way. Hallelujah!

May this testimony encourage you today and may the scripture bless your heart.

Isajah 43: 1-7 NKJV:

"But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;
I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar,
And My daughters from the ends of the earth—
Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

Food for thought:

If people are talking bad about other people, they are probably also talking bad about you.
Let's make a choice today to always build each other up instead of tearing each other down.

"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit" (Proverbs 18:21 NIV).

Political Correctness.

Political correctness prevents you from voicing your own opinion. It eventually shuts the door to freedom of speech and religion and so forth and makes every one a puppet or a parrot.

But we including myself have a fire that is burning in our hearts and we cannot deny the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of it.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek (NKJV).

Quality versus Quantity.

It's never about numbers. Over time growth is measured by quality, not just merely by numbers. If you just focus on the numbers you miss the point because joy comes through the process.

This same principle applies also for the church. It's never about numbers, it's about the maturity of every single believer.

"that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,  but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—" (Ephesians 4:14-15 NKJV).

Correction is a Good Thing.

Excellence is the result of correction. So if you want to do an excellent job you need to have the willingness to be corrected.

"Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise" (Proverbs 15:32).

"A God Invasion"

I was driving in my car to work. All of a sudden the LORD invaded my thoughts and gave me a strategy for something I needed to do that morning after He had already instructed me on something else during the night through a dream. I didn't ask Him for it, He gave it to me freely.

I thought this was so cool and heeded the instructions right away. Today God's plans were accomplished in my life, nothing was my idea, it was all His. And the same can happen to you too.
Are you ready for a God invasion in your life? :-)

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye" (Psalm 32:8 NKJV).
"I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me" (Psalm 16:7 NIV).

"Being Smart"

It's a good thing to save some money, because when you need some you can borrow it from yourself, pay it back to yourself and you don't even have to pay interest.

"Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow" (Proverbs 13:11 NIV).
