MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE For The Body Of Christ January 17, 2011

Goooooooooood Morninnnnnnnnnnnng

Where do you go from here?….How do we deal with these subtle impending notions about time; that’s it moving too fast, the idea that you are running out of time? Then there is all this talk of end time prophecies and the stir it creates. That frustration can lead to questions of “what’s next?”. The word the Lord is showing on this is really very simple; it’s “FORWARD”.

What’s going to happen? Many are asking and should know there is a place to get answers; the WORD of God. It is written and every last detail will play out, so who better to trust and turn to? Jesus is the answer! All things can be forsaken except HIS word.The Bible says time will continue after here into eternity but the opportunity for salvation is here and now. There will come a time when the door of opportunity is shut & God is the one who shuts it. God is constantly trying to give us directives; we need to be responsive to His instructions

 Jesus (our opportunity to salvation in the here and now)
  • John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to me
  • Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
  • Isa 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
  •  Rev 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

God’s word goes FORWARD, established and secure. Life moves forward; we learn this as young children and we anxiously embrace it, perceiving that going forward will be the passport to a freedom and opportunity that was beyond us. Even when we are older we are always waiting for “what’s next” as if it will satisfy; do not get comfortable “here” in this “place”, this is a temporary, temporal home. Don’t get trapped in the fancy prison either; What seems solid and constant today may not be tomorrow.

Just as in our physical stature, the spirit must grow; we need to learn to change in order that we actually move forward for the Lord. Maybe we feel like we need a direction, a “what’s next plan of action”?! God says; “Child, don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow is sufficient unto itself.” We have a direction, the direction is Forward! Every event that happens is overseen by God; it must pass through his hands. We should take comfort in that! I certainly do! My Father is Fair, Mighty and Just; No adversary shall prevail and none shall pluck us from the hands of our Creator and Savior!
  • John 10: 28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Onward, upward, forward…These are the things that remain “still“…all else shall change…

(* special thanks to my friend who sent this little list to me… 🙂

Heavenly Father as we move forward into this New Year and New Season allow us growth and advancement in the areas that are needed. Father we trust you and seek your will in all things; we see turmoil and evidence all around that things are in disarray but your word tells us not to be alarmed by this, rather aware that these things are signs of what is to come. We know ultimately what is to come is Christ Jesus and that fact alone is OUR GREATEST comfort! Father help us to grow in faith and knowledge that we may apply that which you give us which yields wisdom and courage. Let us all reach for that which is set before us, the upward climb and the pursuit of Jesus Christ and the Gospel of Peace. AMEN

Listen, learn and follow…

  • Matthew 6:34 Take no thought for tomorrow; for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
  • Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 

  •  Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth will come to an end, but my words will not come to an end.
  • James 1:22-25  But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

You can pray to the Lord to advance you and He will…
