Praise GOD for this wonderful fall day He has put before us. I praise Him because He is allowing me to draw in the air that I breathe and the ability to put together this message. What are you praising Him for?

Today’s Prayer

(make this a personal prayer)

    Father, I make a joyful noise unto You and serve You with gladness. I come before Your presence with singing. You are God. You made me; and I am Your child, a sheep of Your pasture. I will enter Your gates with thanksgiving, and into Your courts with praise. I am thankful to You, and bless Your name. For You are good; Your mercy is everlasting; and Your truth endures to all generations. I put everyone that is grieving a friend or family member, In JESUS’ name, with praise and thanks, I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Are You a Romans 8:14 Christian?

For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. – Romans 8:13-14

    Joshua and Caleb are described in the bible as men who had a different spirit. They were two of the 12 spies sent into the Promised Land to determine if it could be taken, as God had promised it to them. The other ten gave a bad report that instilled fear in the people, which ultimately caused a rebellion. This resulted in an entire generation dying in the desert. Joshua and Caleb were the only two who were led by the Spirit of God, versus the spirit of fear. They were the only ones to enter the Promised Land from their generation.

    Are you a person led by the Spirit? The verse above tells us that those who are led by the Spirit are sons of GOD. “But because My servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows Me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it” (Num. 14:24). Caleb was a Romans 8:14 man! The Spirit led him. He was not led by fear.

    Many of us have failed to enter into our own Promised Land because we have failed to be led by the Spirit rather than by fear. Fear prevents us from entering into what God has promised for each of us. God has reserved an inheritance for us that is exceedingly good. God described the Promised Land as a land of milk and honey. Our own Promised Land is the same. But you must be led by the Spirit to enter in. You can’t be led by fear, reason and analysis, or even skill. The Spirit must lead you.

Commit yourself to being a Romans 8:14 man or woman. Then you will enter into the land God has promised for you.

Quote of the Day

Every day you provide your bodies with good to keep them from failing. In the same way your good works should be the daily nourishment of your hearts. Your bodies are fed with food and your spirits with good works. You aren’t to deny your soul, which is going to live forever, what you grant to your body, which is going to die. ~Anonymous~
