Love you all, praying for you.
What are you doing today? I just love God’s Word. It is truth, the standard by which every word is measured by. A story was once told of a man passing some workers on a city street. “What are you doing?” He asked one of them. “Laying bricks,” was the reply. Then he asked the next, “What are you doing?” “Building a wall.” Walking a few feet further he asked the third… “What are you doing?” The man smiled and straightened up. “We’re building a Cathedral.” Each one doing the same thing, but not really. One was just laying bricks, another was building something for the glory of Almighty God. A higher purpose. The why is important. Psalms 67:1 – May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us. You likely have heard these words in every Sunday Service benediction. But the very next verse delivers the secret. “So that your ways may be known on the earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, may all the nations praise you.” I just love God’s Word, it not only gives the what – it gives the why. In every thought and action in life, every endeavor, every plan, every word… there is God’s way and man’s way. If you know His plans for you today, and are humble enough to exchange yours for His. And if you know His word of life and truth that He wants to reveal to you for today. That is how you will walk in His ways. His ways are higher – your life will be infinitely better. It’s how you get to His good! The good that He has planned for you, that He has in store for you, that He has stored up for you. Humility, Obedience and Wisdom isn’t for nothing – it will make you successful, fruitful, and His peace will surround you, it will be in you, and rest upon you. But that’s not the only purpose for walking in His ways. Not just for your blessing, but for your proclamation – that His ways will be known on the earth. So every nation and every people may praise Him! The One who saves and delivers, who forgives and heals, who leads and guides in truth and life, and peace and joy. That’s why PiVAT before dinner is so important, it’s the starting point – the key ingredient to walk in His ways – you have to know what they are. You find out when you ask. Praying that PiVAT will always put you in receiving mode of His great plans for you. And His instructions for you. PRISM will have you soaking in His Word until how you think is how He thinks. It’s how His ways become your ways, and His thoughts become your thoughts. Its how His words become your words, and His life becomes your life. Praying that your Daily Call will be just the first of many times you share your testimony today - of what He did when you just obeyed. Telling others of His amazing grace and faithfulness, so they too will be drawn to walk in His ways. Praying that you will walk with Him, for the highest purpose way beyond merely your good and your blessing, your provision, and your peace. So that everyone who sees you – will see what He does for the one who fears the LORD and walks in His ways. So they will come to know Him, like you do. So will walk in His ways – in the wonderful plans He has for them! So they will praise The One who is worthy of all praise.
