Being Shelter for someone 05-24-15

_ 081314 Shelter

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, yes He is good. As a saved person, have you ever thought of yourself as being part of the bible? Threw you for a loop there for a moment didn’t I? Keep reading for clarification.


Today’s prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, It’s true…We may be the only “Bible” someone ever reads. Please help us be a living testament that is worth reading. Please work through us and help us be a light and a shelter for our non-believing friends, neighbors, coworkers. I am sitting here today, yielded to your will, and asking you to use us to open the eyes of someone who has been blind his or her whole life. What an incredible blessing it would be to know we are the instruments you used to bring a person into the Kingdom of GOD. Lord we want to hide your Word in our hearts so that the Holy Spirit can bring it to remembrance at all the right times, that the words that come forth from our mouths would honor you and point other people to you. May you be lifted high and exalted, praised, and worshipped above all. In JESUS’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.


Being a Shelter for Those in Need



Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. ~ Isaiah 32:2

Have you ever walked in a dry, hot climate for an extended time? The sun beats down, sweat begins to pour off your brow, and your throat and mouth are parched with thirst. A little shade, a slight breeze, or a cool drink becomes the greatest thing one could value at the moment. When you and I walk with Christ outside the four walls of the church, we become that kind of oasis for non-Christians. However, they may not recognize it at the time. Let’s face it, the workplace and the world for a matter of fact are pretty tough, especially when Christ is not in the center of it. When a person becomes aware of their need of Christ through you or me, we have become a shelter from the wind. We become their refuge from the storms of life.

Someone once said that you and I might be the only Bible someone ever reads, so we need to be something worth reading. Are you available to be that shelter for a non-believing friend? If so, then you may open the eyes of someone who has been blind his whole life. What an incredible blessing to know you were the instrument GOD used to bring a person into the Kingdom of GOD.

Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen (Isaiah 32:3).


Quote of the Day

If you trust yourself to walk in the light of your own conscience, uninstructed or little instructed by the Word of God, you will end up doing things that you are deeply and sincerely convinced are right. But they may be terribly hurtful and destructive within the Church.
