Blessed Redeemer, we blessed Thy Name. We adore You the Most High God. Heaven and earth are works of Thy Hand. The sun, moon and star faileth not, and at Your Word they stand firm forever more. Great is Thy Name O Lord, be Thou exalted above all.
Exalt Him above all the earth, His Name is Jesus, He is Lord forever. Father, we thank You again for Your love and peace in various home, career, business and ministry. In You we run in and be secured.
Every storms of life obeys the voice of the Lord. At His command they remaineth still. Therefore, every storms in the life of every user of the devotional, obey the Voice of the Lord and be still forever in Jesus Name. For my people will dwell in safety and nothing shall by any means hurt them, saith the Lord.
Any wilderness experience in any readers life, receive the touch of God now. And let the spring of waters from on high fill your land that your “Joy” will be full. Amen (Isa 35:1-2) Come, let us join ourselves to the Lord and dwell in safety (Jer 50:5), for the Lord is my Refuge and my Fortress (Ps 91:2).
Beloved, are you conscious of your indwelling (career, business and resident)? The Word of God is emphatically about it and therefore we must not take it laying low. “Do not be unequally yoke with unbeliever”. “What concord hath Christ with Belial”? or “what path hath he that believeth with an infidel”? (2 Cor 6:15). “Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” (2 Tit 2:19). Worst still when such evils are found among believers (1 Cor 5:11-12).
According to what apostle Paul wrote (1 Cor 8:7-13), we must be careful concerning everything we do as Christ’s ambassadors, least any with weak faith among us fail into sin.
This is so important so that we will enjoy the safety of the Lord as promised us in day of calamity. Praise God!
We must endeavor to stay away from any besieging sin, presumptuous sins and common sin. For nothing impure will enter the kingdom of God (1 Pet 1:14-16).
Come along as we dig further for the truth in the Word:
“Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.” Deut. 33:28
The more we dwell alone, the more safe shall we be. God would have His people separate from sinners. His call to them is, “Come ye out from among them.” A Christian world is such a monstrosity as the Scriptures never contemplate. A worldly Christian is spiritually diseased. Those who compromise with Christ’s enemies may be reckoned with them.
Our safety lies, not in making terms with the enemy but in dwelling alone with our best Friend. If we do this, we shall dwell in safety, despite the sarcasms, the slanders, and the sneers of the world. We shall be safe from the baleful influence of its unbelief, its pride, its vanity, its filthiness.
God also will make us dwell in safety alone in that day when sin shall be visited on the nations by wars and famines.
The Lord brought Abram from Ur of the Chaldees, but he stopped half-way. He had no blessing till, having set out to go to the land of Canaan, to the land of Canaan he came. He was safe alone even in the midst of foes. Lot was not safe in Sodom though in a circle of friends. Our safety is in dwelling apart with God.
Beloved, our safe keeping truly belongs to the Lord. He alone is our comforter. We must worship Him in truth and Spirit. We must obey all His commandment as commanded us. Praise the Name of the Lord! let read further on how to live a blameless life:
On Leading A “Blameless” Life
- “But Dwight, there is no way you can stay in business without shading the truth.“
- The sign on the condominium announces, “75% Sold“. I happen to know that the figure is 40%. The owners are highly visible Christian businessmen in the community.
The Scriptures correctly indict the human race in observing, “All men are liars.” (Psalm 116:11)
So, what is the standard for believers who domicile, socialize and make their living in a world of liars? Answer: To be “blameless”:
“The righteous man leads a blameless life… ” (Proverbs 20:7)
In this context “blameless” is defined as:
(1) INTEGRITY: That is, there is congruency between what you verbalize and what you practice: WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get. No one can point the finger at you and legitimately cry, “Hypocrite“!
(2) SIMPLICITY: “My heart is not haughty, O Lord, nor my eyes lofty; Neither do I concern myself with great matters nor with things too profound for me.” (Psalm 131:1)
Over the years I have observed that maturing Christians are continually taking steps to simplify their lives rather than allowing them to become increasingly complex.
As Gandhi once said, “There is more to life than increasing its speed.“
(3) INNOCENCE: Jesus talked about the virtues of childlikeness: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)
Are not simplicity and innocence trademarks of children? The more complex our lives become, the more we are inclined to loose our innocence.
QUESTION: How would your lost associates describe your life?
As phony? Inconsistent? Fake? Or as Authentic? Real? Genuine?
How you answer that question defines whether or not you are in fact a righteous person as evidenced by your blameless life.
Do you want to enjoy the “full package” of the monthly promise (covenant “JOY )? Do among other righteous things “live a blameless life’. In this God will be glorify and He will reward you handsomely (1 Pet 5:4).
Remain blessed in Lord.
