WORD OF THE DAY

Our trails either define who you are or refine You.

It is what we do with the Trails and how we handle them that makes the difference on how we come out of them.

No Test comes to us to make us weak or frail or fail. My Trails Define and Refine Me. Your greatest hurt is the opportunity for your greatest Growth”

Be willing to walk through every hurting situation. And defining circumstances.

So be truly glad!* There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold.
So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.


WORD OF THE DAY

DESTINED FOR GREATNESS

 Every person has a destiny in God. God has a great plan for each person in the world. The problem is that we often get out of God’s plan. We see things and formulate plans that we think would be wonderful, but God has something far more special for us than we could ever imagine. A study at the life of Joseph illustrates this truth{Genesis 37: 3-11}. Joseph’s life demonstrates the reality of Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
            It is always important for Christians to know that God is at work behind the daily circumstances of our lives. He is using them to keep molding us into a greater image – that of Himself. The life of Joseph can provide a lot of principles on how we ought to respond to God’s process of molding:
 
 


WORD OF THE DAY

The more you doubt, the more you’ll have to live without.

 
Complaining is one of the worst traps that many Christians fall into. A complainer thinks, “I can’t stand my boss. If she would only treat me better, I’d be happy. I hate this traffic. Why can the government improve traffic flow with all the tax money I pay?” This is a deceptive trap because it leads one to believe that life would be better if something would be different. However,
it is far more productive for to believe that God can change the situation than to doubt him.
 
This trap of complaining is the same trap that the Israelites fell into. They were not satisfied with what God had given them and they continually wanted more. Psalm 106:12-15 is a great example of what happens to people who are unthankful and always want more: Then they [Israel] believed his promises and sang his praise. But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel. In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test. So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them.
 
That passage refers the Israelites’ persistent request for food, water, and other basic resources.

They didn’t trust God; they doubted his ability to provide and tested him. So, because of their doubt, God sent a wasting disease upon them.

Furthermore, for forty years God withheld the promised land from them. Their doubt caused them to live without.
 


WORD OF THE DAY

Knowing God’s Word will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from knowing His Word.

God has given us His Word as a guide for our life. However, His Word won’t help us if we don’t study it, know it, and live by it. Therefore, we must diligently study and apply God’s Word if we wish for it to have an impact on our lives.

Jesus promised, “If you abide in My word …, you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 , AMP). That’s a promise that if we abide in His Word, we will know the Truth, because His

Word is the Truth. So it makes sense that God told the Israelites,

“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful” (Joshua 1:8).

Joshua later repeated a similar instruction:

“Be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left” (Joshua 23:6).

Why is it so important to follow God’s Word? Because

His Word keeps us from turning aside to the right or to the left; it keeps us on the straight and narrow path that leads to life (see Matthew 7:13-14)

Therefore,abide in His Word, because His Word will keep you from sin.
 

 



WORD OF THE DAY

Are you looking for right answers in wrong places?

People in the world are desperately looking for answers: answers to problems, answers to difficult questions, answers to pain and suffering — everyone wants answers to life’s questions.

But so many people look for right answers in all the wrong places: psychics, mediums, weegie boards, star charts, spiritists, astrological signs, and other similar places.

Sadly, some of the most visited sites on the Internet contain popular horoscopes.
However, God sternly warns His people not to turn to such things. In

Leviticus 19:31, God tells us, “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them.” Only a few verses later, He again warns: “I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritisms to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people” (Leviticus 20:6

).
The Bible instructs us not to turn to worldly things for answers. Instead, we are to turn to Jesus, who is

the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6). Jesus is not one of the ways; He is the way. You will get real answers to life’s difficult questions only from God.

So, instead of spending $3.99 per minute looking for right answers in wrong places, turn to the all-knowing God, himself, the creator of the universe!

Word of the Day

Comparison Trap

Many times we begin to compare our lives to other people, our future and our past that it cripples our present. We need to always remember that we were made in the image and likeness of God not man.

One of the fastest ways of discouraging yourself and getting trapped by the sin of envy is when you compare yourself to others. God has a specific plan for you and you won’t accomplish that plan by looking at others. Count your blessings and not the blessings of so

meone else.

Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Theodore Roosevelt – “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
 


Word of the day

Please don’t lower the Hoop.

The official height of a basketball hoop is 10ft. A score on a 6ft hoop wouldn’t count in an NBA competition no matter the cheer and fun fare.

In God’s Kingdom, there is God’s Standard and human standard. When we proclaim Him as King and Lord of our lives, We are expected to measure ourselves against His Standard, We are to make His Standard our Standard. Its amazing that in these last days, the “Spiritual Hoop” has been lowered from 10 ft in order to score. Its makes us feel good, well accomplished and successful as believers because we scored on a 5ft spiritual hoop. Let’s remember that the 5ft hoop score does not count, only a 10ft hoop score does. We may get pats on out backs, trophies on our shelves, cheers from the crowds, high sales on our Books and Cds but if we lowered our hoops, its not counting before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)
 


WORD OF THE DAY

DECISIONS OR CHOICES

Basic principles on making choices

D.MAKE CHOICES WHICH VALUE GOD’S ETERNAL PROMISES OVER IMMEDIATE PLEASURE.

Lot’s choice of Sodom was based on what would bring him quick gratification, but he didn’t take into account God’s promise to Abram about the land.

After Lot moved to Sodom, the Lord reaffirmed His promise to Abram and even expanded on it (13:14-17)
As believers we are to live by faith in the promises of God. When we face decisions, we take God into account and make those decisions in line with His promises and principles, not the immediate gratification of the flesh. We deny ungodliness and worldly desires in light of the blessed hope of Christ’s return (Titus 2:11-13), trusting that His promises concerning eternity are true.
 


Word of the day

DECISIONS OR CHOICES

C.
MAKE CHOICES WHICH VALUE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD OVER THE APPROVAL OF THE WORLD.
 
Abram moved his tent and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and there he built an altar to the Lord.”

We see again the two things that marked Abram’s life of obedient faith, the tent and the altar: Abram the pilgrim, just passing through; and, Abram the worshiper, bearing witness to a pagan world.

-You don’t ever find Lot building an altar in Sodom, and he traded in his tent for a townhouse. He settled in Sodom and blended in with their corruption. He was popular, sitting on their city council, but he was not prophetic. Abram lived in fellowship with God and became known as the friend of God.
Jesus was the friend of sinners, but He was never tainted by their sin because He put a premium on fellowship with the Father and He never sought the approval of the world. He was in the world with a clear sense of His mission, to glorify the Father and to seek and to save the lost. If we want to line up with Abram rather than with Lot, we’ve got to be people of the tent and the altar, pilgrims and worshipers, here to bear witness. We must put fellowship with God above the approval of the world in all our decisions.
