_ 081314 Shelter

Good day to ya and praise the Lord for giving us another chance to get ourselves straight and to spread the gospel. The question becomes, Will you do it or will you take the day off?

Today’s Prayer

On behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ I lift my hands in praise, to honor You Ancient of Days. You were and are and are to come. You alone are worthy. You alone are all-powerful. You alone have the keys to death and hell. You alone have provided the way to heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. You know the past and can see the future. Thank You for carrying and being with us through our lives. Thank You that You will be with us always and we will be with You in eternity. We love You and want to glorify You in all we are and do. Please forgive us for failing. Help us, Father. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Being a Shelter for Those in Need

The following scripture grabbed me as I read it and put me in a deep mode of giving thanks to God. What a revelation I got from this.
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

Think about this. It’s a very hot day and you’re outside for an extended period. The sun is beating 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 that you could get at that moment.

This is the reality of this whole thing. If you work for a living you are spending about 10 hours or more of your day getting to work, working and returning home. We spend a major portion of our time awake in our workplace. So if this is the case, this is where are ministry is. When you and I walk with Christ in our workplace, regardless what the environment is, we become that kind of oasis for non-Christians. On the other hand, they may not recognize it at the time. Let’s face it; the workplace is 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.

I don’t know who to give credit to for saying this but it is so very true; 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 or her whole life. What an incredible blessing to know you were the instrument God used to bring a person into His Kingdom.

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

We can be certain that God will give us the strength and resources we need to live through any situation in life that he ordains. The will of God will never take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us.
