Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It tells you what is true, it tells you what to do, and it tells you what to do every day. Someone said, “You are what you do daily.” It’s not what you intend to do, or what you wish you had done, it’s not what you say you’re going to do, or did one time. It’s what you do, and don’t do! It’s what you do regularly that makes you and shapes you. It’s what you do daily that forms you. It determines what you become, and what you remain, what you grow in, and what lasts only for a season… Praying that you will know for sure what God told you to do today, and what God told you to do every day. What if you knew that? What if you did it! How would your life change? What would you become? What could God do in just a few weeks, or months, or just a few years. You wouldn’t recognize you! What would your testimony be? What would you leave as a legacy? One thing I’m praying that you will do every day – because it will encourage you in what God told you to do, and told you to do every day… PiVAT before dinner, and a Daily Call with a friend. It’s instant encouragement and counsel, it's daily overcoming! So you can be sharpened, as Iron sharpens Iron. Simple, but not easy. You have to recognize the value of God’s command in Hebrews 3:13, to exhort ‘one other’ daily. If you value His command, you will do it, and if you do, over time… you will see the result. God never gives busy-work… He gives commands for your success, for your victory, for your overcoming. Steps that will establish you in His purpose, and His promise. Will you pray about asking someone to do a 3-Day-Challenge with you? You’ve done it before, God used it before, His Word hasn’t changed… It’s easy to stop what works. You might not miss it at first, because of the distractions or other attentions, but every time you do what He commands, there is a blessing attached to it – because blessing and joy are inseparable from obedience. Praying that you will love God, and love others. Your greatest ministry ever, is allowing someone close enough to see how you obey every day. It’s what God calls making disciples – teaching them to obey all the things He wants them to obey, the path He has for them. So they can be like David, a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22) You could help them. And the benefit to you, is always more than the investment you put in. God just has funny math that way. Praying that you will have a Daily Call this year… So you can grow in your testimony, and your overcoming, so you can grow in your wisdom, in your love for God’s Word, and in your prayer and your love for others. It’s always worth it!
Love you all,
