Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word. It is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword. It applies to you today. And the Holy Spirit – if you will invest in your PRISM time with Him, will show you God’s Word for you for today - just what you need. Sometimes it’s something you’ve never seen before, sometimes a reminder of what you already know. But it is always what you need for today. He’s already been to the end of it, He knows what you need, and loves you enough to give it to you when you need it. The only way you miss that timely Word, is if you neglect His Word, but if you put Him first in your PRISM time, those five things you can do every day in God’s Word – He will give you exactly what you need at just the right time. Have you ever noticed, some things He gives you – are big things, significant? And if He has a Word for you every day – which He does, some things are big enough that it takes more than one day to learn to walk consistently in them. That’s why sometimes God will bring you back again to what He showed you yesterday. Sometimes some chapters even mention the same things twice. God does it for a reason. This is important. Not just for today, but for every day. He wants His thoughts, to become your thoughts – consistently, so your mind is transformed. The first way to do that is be sure you write it down. If you just read a verse or two that’s PRISM for today – it’s not a religion, just a track to run on. But if you write down what He says – if you SOAP it out during your study the Word, it increases the chances of it taking effect in you, rather than just passing by you. Next if you review it again before you go to bed, or the next morning, it increases the chance of it taking effect in you. And if you give your testimony on your Daily Call – God’s specific command to ‘exhort one another daily’ in Hebrews 3:13 – you again, increase the chance of what He revealed to you, taking effect in you, and becoming part of you – a part of your DNA. So when the next opportunity to ‘think right’ comes – and it will be soon, most likely today. You will already be ready. You will overcome. Psalms 62:1 – My soul find rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. What a Word from God! My soul (my mind, will, and emotions) find rest. It’s something you find, if you are where it is found. Rest is a cease from striving, stressing, fretting and worrying. There is only one place it is found - in God alone. Because He is your salvation – your deliverance – your escape from – He takes you out of that situation, and delivers you from all evil… because He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. It’s a great thing to say out loud, the Word of God. Just like the writer who penned that instruction by the moving of the Holy Spirit. I will never be shaken, He is my fortress. (He’s only your fortress if you run there… otherwise He’s just a fortress. He’s your fortress if you go there.) I will never be shaken. Shaken means ‘thrown off your game, suddenly a little unsteady. Like a fighter who just got rocked. David says because He is my fortress – because His Presence and His Word is my priority – I will never be shaken. Nothing moves me, nothing shakes me, my confidence is in Him, I trust in His Word, I speak it and declare it, I do it, and I believe it. So I’m unshaken, unshakeable. It doesn’t matter if a letter comes in the mail, the engine light comes on, or the doctor brings a bad report, or a setback occurs, or the bank statement looks pitiful. Because He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. I count it all joy! I know this is just His next testimony in the making. I praise His Word, Read His Word, gain Insight and Wisdom from His Word. I Study His Word, and Meditate on His Word, and overcome with my testimony. Because He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Praying that your soul finds rest – because you go where rest is found. In Him is everything you need - forever.
