DAY 82 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

There might just be a teeny-tiny possibility in all these that the main cause of our biggest flaws, failures, loses and regrets is lack of God-guidance.

Title: GOD-GUIDED

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God

Romans 8:14

DAY 20 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

You might use honey as a substitute for sugar. You can use sugarcane(juice) to meet the need when sugar itself is wanting. But, there is nothing (as far as I know) that can be used to sweeten or “salt” salt. Thus, a saltless salt is only good to be thrown into the fire and/or disposed of. The Bible didn’t say we are sugar. It says we are salt. God doesn’t mix His words…

Title: THE-PILLAR-OF-SALT CHRISTIAN

And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt

DAY 19 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

A lot of people have nothing to live for everyday because they don’t have anything to expect. Why do they not have anything to expect?

Title: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO REAP?

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

DAY 12 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

Ever been shocked by your own behavior before?

Title: WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

TWO REVELATIONS I FOUND IN THE PASSION OF JESUS CHRIST

While meditating on the passion of my Christ, I do seem to recognize two abstract but very important figures from it. This revelation deepens my love and gratitude for such a loving Saviour; One whom I believe a dying world needs.

First, it’s the column to which He was tied and scourged:

ALIGNING WITH GOD

Do you know that when God made the first man, Adam, God made someone who was one with Him in spirit? Remember, He made man in His image and likeness. This was why when God brought the animals to Adam in Gen. 2:19, man didn’t disappoint Him. Fulfilling God’s purpose was both his nature and commitment. And when He named them, God didn’t correct or adjust any one. God didn’t chose to call monkey “monkas” (😁). The Bible said, “…and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.” -Gen 2:20. In other words, whatever Adam called them was actually what they were meant to be called. Wow! How come?

THE DREAMER WITHIN (continued)

She continues to speak

“See, I’m a living reality because of you. I’m here to pull down those walls with you. Do you know how hard it’s been for me? I mean, I love you so dearly, and to watch your life get harder and harder, and to watch you lose the ability to see or hope again, do you know how hard it has been for me?

I mean, to watch you turn into the type who works like the elephant anr survives like the ant…working harder and harder the more. Seeing you struggle through the storms, unable to hear my voice. Watching you choke under the circumstances and I can’t help you. Not because I can’t help, but because….you just won’t let me. You never thought I could do it. But, I could have helped, or…I would’ve, if only you’d let me.

I never stopped talking, or caring, or loving.
This has been the hardest part: watching you lose sight of me, the pinnacle of your destination and motivation disappearing into the distance.

Why? Because you thought you have arrived at a point where “We” weren’t a possibility no more. A point where you’ll eat everything and catch all the “fun” now, and let the future, your destiny I mean, sort itself out.

Those around weren’t there to love you like they should have. No one cared enough to give the gentle nudge in the right direction. I tried hard to come around, but…you kept pushing me away. You became more and more detached from love, from yourself, and from my reminders and promptings. And instead of letting the flames we both kindled to stay alive, you let it die by giving in to a life of despair. A life without hope, without divine purpose, without love, trust,…without me.

She sighs
Continues

“The passion we both shared was a motivation to others. Everyone was proud and I was grateful for being attached to you.

Now, here I am, locked up at the center of your soul, covered in the dusty memories of a beautiful past. And all I hear from you are complaints upon complaints, and how you couldn’t do, how you couldn’t be , and how you couldn’t have. How nobody is there for you, and how somebody did this or that to you…

You were meant to be a high achiever, a success together. You have greatness, gifts and talents, you’re not touching or even thinking about yet.

The problems you claim are too big and impossible to conquer… They are all beneath your personality.

Your answers, your fire, your passion, your power, they are all within you. I’m willing to help you if only you’ll listen and give in to the force stirring within your Spirit… YOUR DREAMER WITHIN.
