Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God's Word. He doesn't just tell you, He tells you what He told you for. God tells you things for four reasons. So that you might believe, so that you might have peace, so that you won't go astray, and so that you will have joy. Have you ever known someone that couldn’t resist… they have to say – “I told you so.” Half the time they got lucky, but they just want to rub it in your face. Praise God! He is not like that. He does say I told you… so... He tells you why. He doesn’t tell you after the fact, He does it beforehand. And even if you screw up, He doesn’t remind you of your failure, He reminds you of His faithfulness. I just love God’s Word. Everything He says is on purpose. Have you ever heard people talk, just to talk. It’s amazing how little they can say in so many words. Jesus is the exact opposite. He spoke on purpose, every word He spoke has purpose. John 12:50… So whatever I say is just what the Father told me to say. John 13:15 – I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Verse 17: Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. God longs to bless you – so He tells you what you need to know, what you need to say, what you need to believe, what you need to do, and where you need to be – to be blessed. God tells you for a purpose. And He even tells you what the purpose is. #1 He tells you so that you might believe. John 14:29 – I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. #2 He tells you so you can live in His peace. John 16:33 – I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. #3 He tells you so you don’t go astray, lose focus, get distracted and wander from His presence, and His covering and His blessing. John 16:1 – All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. #4 He tells you so you can be filled with joy. The joy He gives! John 15:10 – If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. My command is this; Love each other as I have loved you… you are my friends if you do what I command. So what is God telling you? And what is He telling you for? What does He want you to know, so that you will believe, so that you will have peace, so that you won’t go astray, so that His Joy may be in you, and your joy may be full? Praying that PiVAT will direct your day. His plans not yours, it’s how you hear and obey what He has for you. Praying that PRISM will be what you always come back to. Its how you hear what He says, so that you will believe, and have peace, and His Joy. Praying that your Daily Call – has you overcoming every day – just like He told you. So you can overcome.
