Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It’s God speaking to you. God speaks to you in multiple ways. First, that still small voice. He spoke to Abraham, before the Bible was even written. He speaks to you the same way, by His Holy Spirit – that’s why if you have been saved – eternally changed, He wants you to be filled with His Spirit – the first step of obedience, the followers of Christ were tested with. It’s what gave them power to be witnesses, to live a life devoted to Jesus Christ. The second way He speaks is His Word – He said it’s living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, dividing between soul and spirit, even the motives and intents of the heart… The third way He speaks, is through Godly counsel, obeyers who know truth, who have gained God’s wisdom rather than what the world thinks is wisdom, who have learned to obey, and have walked in the fruit of it. That’s why God says to gain victory – seek counsel. God speaks through other people, even those who don’t believe, He can speak through situations or circumstance, he can even speak through a donkey if He chooses. Most people aren’t looking for His next word to them, so they often miss it. He’s always speaking… for those who have ears to hear. So if He speaks in multiple ways. What does God tell you? Two Things. What He wants you to do today, and what He wants you to do every day. Well what about just reading the Bible to know how to treat people? That’s what He wants you to do every day… read His Word – so you gain wisdom, but so you know his heart and his love for you, and others. So you can treat them like He loves them. So which is most important? What He tells you to do every day. The habits He has chosen for you. It what helps you become more and more capable to do what He tells you to do today. If you don’t know what He said to do every day, you’re unlikely to do what He told you today. And until you do what He told you to do every day, he has to withhold some assignments for you… you’re not ready yet, you’re too carnally minded, or selfish, or doubtful or fearful… What He tells you to do every day, grows you in the image of His son Jesus – so you have the mind of Christ, the wisdom of God, the testimony that overcomes, and the sure hope of His promise. It’s what prepares you for what He wants to tell you to do today. Praying that PiVAT is your priority – it’s where you write down what He wants you to do daily, and what He has assigned for you today. Praying that PRISM is your priority – so you know the mind of Christ, and the wisdom of God, His love for you, and others, and the hope of His promise. And praying that today in your M: Meditate on the Word – for your PRISM time, that The Holy Spirit will lead you to review the PRISM Topic – Habits. Some truth that even the world understands, and complete truth from God’s Word about the value of habits – those things He tells you to do every day. So you can gain the character and skills, so you are ready to do - what He is waiting to assign you. That thing for today – that you are finally ready for!
