Reminder Of Obedience 06-17-20

Praise God for another day of living, for He has let us celebrate another day of life! Move toward the mark and let no one hold you back.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Your Word says “Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? Or what is the place of My rest? Has My hand not made all these things?” (Acts 7:49,50).  It is true…You created all and You don’t dwell in what is built by human hands. You dwell in the heavenlies, and in the temples made by Your will–the temples of our bodies. Please move over and through us. Make us into creatures that glorify You and testify You through our lives and our mouths. May our bodies be a living sacrifice unto You, which is our reasonable service.  Glory to You, Oh God, Lord of heaven and earth.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Place of Obedience

Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. – Acts 9:8

There is a place of obedience for all of us. For Apostle Paul, it was being struck blind on the Damascus road. God literally knocked him off his horse with a blinding light. A voice from Heaven asked Paul why he was persecuting Him (Jesus). When Paul arose, he could not see. Jesus told him to go to Damascus and meet a man named Ananias. There, Jesus restored Paul’s sight through Ananias. Each of us has a place of obedience. For some, it requires only a nudge of pressure to gently lead us toward God. For others of us, a lightning bolt is necessary to get our undivided attention. Many who are hard-hearted rebel against the living God. Yet His love for these individuals is so great that He takes extreme measures to gain their attention-and their hearts. When you come in contact with people like this, do not fear their arrogance. Instead, see them as God sees them-as people who need the Savior and who could be a powerful force in the Kingdom if God saved them. It’s a sign to begin praying for them.     We’ve all heard the saying, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.” In many cases this is true. God has called many hard cases into His Kingdom through miraculous circumstances in order to save their lives from the pit of hell and transform them into a sweet-smelling fragrance. Don’t let the hard exterior fool you. These are needy people who are crying out for help in their own prideful way. I know this for a fact because I was one of those, full of pride and independence that needed to be in control. Then the day came when God took me down to nothing to show me He was the only provider in my life not my knowledge or ability. Whenever God begins this process in the life of a sinner, He has others standing by to assist. Ananias was the person in Paul’s life. He found it unbelievable that Paul really could have been saved. An angel had to convince him. Has God placed such an individual in your path? Perhaps God desires to use you to be an “Ananias” in the life of one of His wayward children. To do so requires a willingness to come alongside that one who needs your help. Who knows, that person could be the next apostle Paul.

Quote of the Day

Never tolerate through sympathy with yourself or with others any practice that is not in keeping with a holy God. Holiness means unsullied walking with the feet, unsullied talking with the tongue, unsullied thinking with the mind – every detail of the life under the scrutiny of God. Holiness is not only what God gives me, but what I manifest that God has given me.  

Oswald Chambers
