(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning and praise the Lord for another day and another chance to set things right. I was involved in a discussion a couple days ago that led me to a meal I sent out a few years ago. It so hit my spirit for the situation that is going on right now, I decided to share it once again.

Today’s Prayer 

Father, it’s just amazing how You have given us minds to develop the modern tools we now have to reach people around the world. Just to think that even now, people from hundreds of places, from east to west and north to south, are praying this prayer and sharing in Your Word. I know that the Internet is used by Satan too, but You are greater and You can use it for greater things and Your greater glory. I pray that people will be connected, Christians will support other Christians, and that the lost will hear Your Word and the testimonies of Christians, and will come to You through this modern tool of the Internet. Thank You father, for working all things to the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Good Things Versus God-Things

Because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.Romans 8:14

The greatest sign that you and I are maturing in our walk with God is when we can discern the difference between “good things” and “God-things.” When the people of Israel journeyed out of Egypt through the desert, the cloud led them by day. They could move only as fast as the cloud. If they went ahead, they went without God’s presence. If they lagged behind, they also lost God’s presence.

Each of us must have the discernment to know when God is leading in a matter, or if it is simply a good idea. There are so many things in which you and I can be involved and the more successful you become, the greater the temptations to enter into things where God has not called you. Entrepreneurs are especially prone to see all the opportunities.

I remember one time when I entered into a project that I thought was a great idea. It would help many people. After two years, the project had to be discontinued. It was a great lesson on understanding what projects have God’s blessing on them. There are some projects you and I might get involved in that result in little fruit compared to the investment put into them. That is because they may never have been birthed by the Holy Spirit.

As sons and daughters of God, we are called to be led by the Spirit. This requires a level of dependence on God in which many of us really don’t want to invest. It requires listening, waiting, and moving only when God’s Spirit tells us to move. Many believers are “action” people. We know how to get things done, but our greatest strength can also be our greatest weakness.

Today, ask God to make you a Romans 8:14 man or woman who is led by the Spirit of God. Pray against lagging behind or moving ahead. Ask God to reveal whether the next project you consider is a “good thing” or a “GOD -thing.”

Quote of the Day

The Bible stands apart from all other books, and has survived and will survive all the attacks of its enemies. It is like the electric torch that shines over the water of New York Bay, struck by the wing of many a seabird that dashes against it in its reckless flight, but still shining on unmoved while the foolish and reckless assailant falls bleeding and wounded at its feet. It is an anvil which has worn out many a hammer of hostile criticism, while the anvil still remains unshaken amid the wreck of all that have assailed it.
