When We Don’t See Anything Happening…

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on When We Don’t See Anything Happening…

Joshua 2 (KJV)

Jericho was the first city that the Israelites needed to conquer in their quest for the land of Canaan.

When Joshua sent a pair of spies to check it out, he probably didn’t realize that he would receive a glimpse of God’s  impressive behind-the-scenes activity.

God wants us to look at every obstacle through the lens of His unlimited strength and resources. Anything that appears to block His plans is an opportunity for Him to demonstrate His sovereign power.

Just because we don’t see anything happening, that doesn’t mean He’s inactive.

Always remember that God is at work on the other side of our obstacles, arranging the details and bringing His plans to fruition. When the spies returned to Joshua, they reported that the people of Jericho were scared to death. Having heard about the Jews’ deliverance from Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea, they were gripped by fear of the Lord.

The stage was set for the conquest, yet by that point, Joshua had done nothing. Sometimes we think we need to be involved in the solution to our problem, but God is not limited with regard to whom or what He can use to accomplish His will. In this case, He worked in the hearts of the enemy by instilling demoralizing fear.

For Christians, great obstacles need not be reasons for discouragement.

Although much of the Lord’s activity is silent and invisible, we can be sure He is dynamically working out His will for our lives.

When the pieces of His plan are in place, He will move us on to victory.

Joshua 2:24

24 And they said unto Joshua, Truly the Lord hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us

Breaking The Chains That Limit Opportunity…

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on Breaking The Chains That Limit Opportunity…

Colossians 4:3 (KJV)

Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

When Paul wrote this verse, he was in chains in prison. He had been arrested for preaching the gospel. Everything in his surroundings shouted
“limitations,” but instead of looking at his surroundings, Paul kept his eyes on the limitless God.

He kept looking for the open door of opportunity that God would have for him next.

No matter what “chains” you may feel like you are in today, remember, we serve a God who’s in the business of setting people free. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, He fills you with His power.

He promises to walk with you all the days of your life.

When doors look closed all around you, when your surroundings look limited, when you feel like you’re in chains, remember, God is still at work in your life. Like Paul, keep your hopes up.

Keep expecting. Keep believing.

Pray for those opportunities to be opened to you. If you fall, get back up and press forward with even greater determination to accomplish the dream that God has planted in your heart.

The prayer of the righteous avails much, so keep praying because He promises to break the chains and open doors of opportunity in your life!

TODAY’S PRAYER

Father in heaven, I choose to take my eyes off my surroundings and focus on You.
I choose to focus on the passion and dream You’ve planted in my heart.
I trust that You are working behind the scenes, opening doors of opportunity.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Re-Created, From The Inside Out…

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on Re-Created, From The Inside Out…

(2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJ)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

The very moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we instantly become a new creation!

Our spirits are made alive in Him and the old passes away. His peace fills our hearts.

Now, everything in your life doesn’t change instantly. Some things do, but God will do some things in your life over time as you grow in your relationship with Him.

The key is to keep moving forward in your spiritual journey one step at a time.

As you abide in Him by spending time with Him in prayer and worship, and as you study His Word and connect with other believers in a Bible-based church, He will continue to transform you and renew you from the inside out!

Today, remember, God is at work in your life.

You may not be where you want to be. You may have made some mistakes or had some setbacks. Know that in Him, you are the righteousness of God.

In Him, you are new. In Him is everything you need to have victory in every area of your life!

TODAY’S PRAYER

Father God, thank You for making me new!
Thank You for ordering and directing my steps.
I trust that You are at work in my life transforming me into Your image.
Keep me close to You as I put You first in everything I do.

In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The Glory of The Vision

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on The Glory of The Vision

Isaiah 35:7

“And the parched ground shall become a pool.”


We always have visions, before a thing is made real.

When we realize that although the vision is real, it is not real in us, then is the time that Satan comes in with his temptations, and we are apt to say it is no use to go on.

Instead of the vision becoming real, there has come the valley of humiliation.

“Life is not as idle ore,
But iron dug from central gloom,
And batter’d by the shocks of doom
To shape and use.”

God gives us the vision, then He takes us down to the valley to batter us into the shape of the vision, and it is in the valley that so many of us faint and give way.

Every vision will be made real if we will have patience.

Think of the enormous leisure of God! He is never in a hurry.

We are always in such a frantic hurry.

In the light of the glory of the vision we go forth to do things, but the vision is not real in us yet; and God has to take us into the valley, and put us through fires and floods to batter us into shape, until we get to the place where He can trust us with the veritable reality.

Ever since we had the vision God has been at work, getting us into the shape of the ideal, and over and over again we escape from His hand and try to batter ourselves into our own shape.

The vision is not a castle in the air, but a vision of what God wants you to be.

Let Him put you on His wheel and whirl you as He likes, and as sure as God is God and you are you, you will turn out exactly in accordance with the vision. Don’t lose heart in the process.

If you have ever had the vision of God, you may try as you like to be satisfied on a lower level, but God will never let you.
