“Now the LORD had said to Abram: Get out of your country, From your family And from your fathers house, To a land that I will show you.” Genesis 12:1

We know Abraham didn’t question God,He just packed up and left everything as God called him. What an example of stepping out in faith, just hearing the call of God and doing it!

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Often times when God calls we start making ultimatums; when my bank account is big enough, when my kids get older, and when my house or car is paid off! This isn’t exercising faith! That’s walking by sight!

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

One of the best ways to build our faith is by being in the word of God! Then doing what it’s says!

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26

Today the best way to exercise our faith is to hear what the LORD says, and like Abraham just get out there and do it! Have a blessed day.

“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.” Isaiah 55:1

Today everything costs us, even water has a price! What the LORD is saying here I know you thirst, but in me there is no price! I PAID IT!

“On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirst, let him come to Me and drink.” John 7:37

In other words Jesus has everything we need! In the world we will always be left unsatisfied and wanting! In the LORD we will always be filled!

“Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you – The sure mercies of David.” Isaiah 55:3

Think of it this way God was merciful to David, so He will surely be merciful to you and I. The Bible explains who David was a liar, a adulterer and a murderer, and he was still given mercy! So today let us Incline our ear to the LORD and let Him quench our thirst, it’s free because He already paid the price! Have a blessed day.

Shabbat Shalom

“And they said, Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4

This is the problem with man, we are always trying to compete with God. The idea is we can do anything God can do, that’s what Satan does and it makes nothing but a mess!

“So the LORD scattered them abroad from over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.” Genesis 11:8

When we are arrogant and think we can out do the LORD, watch out, He is in total control and will deal with us! Remember we are His we belong to the living God and don’t need to compete with Him! We are on His team!

“But you are a chosen generation, a royals priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9

We don’t have to build towers today we just have to walk in the light of the LORD! Knowing the LORD is the perfect builder and has made us for His glory! So let us just walk in His ways and in His light! Have a blessed day. Shabbat Shalom!

He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; Therefore it is said, Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.”

Genesis 10:9

Everyone can be a hunter before the LORD, it depends on what your hunting! Are we hunting to see men saved or are we hunting to be worshipped? Are we hunting for the LORD or are we hunting for our own purposes?

“Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling.” Psalm 2:11

We often need to search our own hearts, go on a hunting expedition to see what’s in it! Often times we may find we are out hunting for our own purposes, not the LORDS.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try Me, O God, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

Today let us really search our hearts to see what’s in it, get rid of the stuff that is of no use to the LORD! And let us become mighty hunters for the LORD! Have a blessed day!

“Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.” Genesis 9:6

Here we see God’s plan for government and how He desired to protect man! The problem is the world is trying to get rid of God’s plan! No more consequences for crimes! Murders walk free, thieves aren’t convicted and adulterers are celebrated!

“LORD, how long will the wicked, How long will the wicked triumph?” Psalm 94:3

Well the wicked don’t triumph, they don’t win and God will judge! We as believers need to realize this is not our home! When the LORD calls us to be with Him, we will be leaving everything behind! All the stuff that weighs us down will be left behind and we will be with the LORD!

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.”

1 John 5:4

Remember we are made in God’s image and He has a perfect plan! Even though the world is falling apart the LORD isn’t! Today let’s look to the LORD not to man! Have a blessed day!
