Beloved, how was your week? Hope you had a nice time? Glory be to God. Today is PCL. Is someone excited? I am, praise God! And is going to be wonderful as the Holy Spirit is here again to move in an unusual way. Glory be to God in the highest.
Highlight of the weekly teaching reveals that God is faithful and ever abiding. We have to keep trusting Him to live a glorious destiny. God alone can help and preserve us from all evil, the pestilence that is in dark places and destruction that waste at noonday. We are bless of in the day and watches over us in the night please God.
Beloved, our walk with God is a symbol of obedience. If you are not obedient beloved, you can walk with God. God is a God of order and when He say a thing or command it to be so shall it be.
We are expose to practical living in the Word. We are call to live as children of God and not fulfill the lust of the flesh but to obey God.
Are you willing to obey God? Is God purposes going to find fulfillment in your life? Come with me as you learn more from the message below:
After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he answered.
“Take your son,” He said, “your only [son] Isaac, whom you love, go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.”—Genesis 22:1–2
Our difficulty is not that we don’t know God’s will. Our discomfort comes from the fact that we do know His will, but we do not want to do it!
When God first spoke to Abraham, His commands were straightforward. “Go to a land I will show you” (Gen. 12:1). Then God led Abraham through a number of tests over the years. Abraham learned patience as he waited on God’s promise of a son, which took twenty-five years to be fulfilled.
Abraham learned to trust God through battles with kings and through the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The pinnacle of Abraham’s walk of faith was when God asked him to sacrifice the one thing that meant more to him than anything else. Abraham’s previous obedience indicated that he would have quickly and decisively sacrificed anything else God asked of him, but was he prepared for this? God did not ask Abraham to make such a significant sacrifice at the beginning of their relationship. This came more than thirty years after Abraham began walking with God.
As the Father progressively reveals His ways to you in your Christian pilgrimage, you, like Abraham, will develop a deeper level of trust in Him. When you first became a Christian, your Master’s instructions were probably fundamental, such as being baptized or changing your lifestyle.
But as you learn to trust Him more deeply, He will develop your character to match bigger tests, and with the greater test will come a greater love for God and knowledge of His ways. Are you ready for God’s next revelation?
Examine the lives of these men and make a choice:
Two Men Of Passion
King Solomon and the Apostle Paul.
The difference between them lay in the focus of their passion:
Solomon’s passion was directed away from God by his affection for unbelieving foreign women:
“His wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God.” (1 Kings 11:4)
Paul’s passion, by contrast, was redirected from self-righteous legalism toward knowing Christ:
“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.” (Philippians 3:7, 8)
Solomon expended his life on pleasure:
“I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure.” (Ecclesiastes 2:10)
Paul, by comparison, invested his life in making Christ known:
“We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom. To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy… ” (Colossians 1:28, 29)
HOW DID THESE TWO MEN OF PASSION END UP?
Solomon became bitter and disappointed in his old age:
“I hated life… [and] I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun… ” (Ecclesiastes 2:17a, 18a)
Paul, however completed his life with a profound sense of accomplishment and anticipation:
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day… ” (2 Timothy 4:8)
(1) Where is the focus of your passion? On yourself, or on the Glory of God?
(2) How will you end up? Like Solomon, or like Paul?
Will you be obedient as Abraham did or chose to go your path? Who will you like to end like Paul or Solomon? Good question to take and meditate therein.
Enjoy your weekend. See you next week by God’s grace.
Remain blessed in the Lord
