Hear and do

“The men replied to her, Our lives are certainly worth yours, provided you don’t betray our mission. So when Adonai gives us the land, we will treat you kindly and in good faith.”

Joshua 2:14 CJB

Rahab heard the good news of what God was doing with Israel, leading them, and keeping His promises to them and she believed! When she believed, she acted. The same goes for us when we hear the good news of the LORD we need to act!

“But He said, Far more blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”

Luke 11:28 CJB

An amazing thing happens when we hear the word of God, believe it and do what it says! We get blessed!

“I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Genesis 12:3 CJB

Here we see a couple of examples in God’s word where we hear and do what God says and we get blessed! One of the things we can do is pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem.

“Pray, for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”

Psalm 122:6 NKJV

Have a blessed day hearing the word of God and doing it!

God’s way is better

“The same Torah and standard of judgment will apply to both you and the foreigner living with you.”

Numbers 15:16 CJB

In other words, the LORD judges everyone the same! He shows no favorites, He treats everyone the same and gives us all the same opportunity for salvation!

“For Adonai your God is God of gods and LORD of lords, the great, mighty and awesome God, who has no favorites and accepts no bribes.”

Deuteronomy 10:17 CJB

What a comfort to know that the love of the LORD is the same for everyone. All we have to do is call on His name!

“But Adonai’s eyes watch over those who fear Him, over those who wait for His grace.”

Psalm 33:18 CJB

The best thing we can do to have peace throughout the day is to look to the LORD in every situation we are in! His standards and ways are always going to be better! Have a blessed day in Him!

Dwell on the LORD

“But just as the whole community were saying they should be stoned to death, the glory of Adonai appeared in the tent of meeting to all the people of Israel.”

Numbers 14:10 CJB

Here we see Joshua and Caleb saying let’s go in and take the land the LORD has given us and it’s not the world that comes at them, but their own people! The same can happen to us when we do what the LORD says we can get attacked by our own! Don’t worry about what others think just do what the LORD says! He will appear!

“You are agreeing today that Adonai is your God and that you will follow His ways; observe His laws, mitzvoth and rulings; and do what He says.”

Deuteronomy 26:17 CJB

We are living in times where things really are backwards. What we need to do is just walk in His ways and do what He says and don’t get caught up in the nonsense of the world!

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who change darkness into light and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter!”

Isaiah 5:20 CJB

Today don’t allow the crazy times we are living in control you making you bitter! Know that the LORD is completely in control so just follow hard after Him it’s going to work out just the way He planned it! Have a super sweet blessed day in Him!

Share the love of the LORD

“Kalev silenced the people around Moshe and said, We ought to go up immediately and take possession of it; there is no question we can conquer it.”

Numbers 13:30 CJB

Why was Kalev (Caleb) so confident that they could take possession? Because God told them, He promised them they could take it!

“They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you, says Adonai, to rescue you.”

Jeremiah 1:19 CJB

Our biggest problem is fear. We are afraid to step out, afraid of rejection and afraid of failure! But, Jesus said: “Go into all the world and share the Good News of Salvation.”

“What, then, are we to say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Romans 8:31 CJB

Today, let us step out and take possession of land. How? By simply sharing the love of the LORD and His salvation!

“With Adonai on my side, I fear nothing-what can human beings do to me? With Adonai on my side as my help, I will look with triumph at those who hate me.”

Psalm 118:6-7 CJB

So let’s go out and share the love of the LORD today and take possession of some land, so to speak! Don’t be timid. Remember, with the LORD on your side, what can man do to you? The answer is nothing! Have a blessed day sharing His love!

Celebrate the LORD

“We had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead but has come back to life-he was lost but has been found.”

Luke 15:32 CJB

What are we celebrating? Life with our Father in Heaven or life in the world? Maybe we don’t have riches and houses, maybe we have issues and problems either way where and what do we put all your energy into? Celebrate our earthly joy or our earthly misery?

“No servant can be slave to two masters, for he will either hate the first and love the second, or scorn the second and be loyal to the first. You can’t be a slave to both God and money.”

Luke 16:13 CJB

We all really need to ask ourselves who do we serve? Its’s not a new question Joshua asks it in: “Joshua 24:15” Who are you going to serve? Elijah asks it in: “1 Kings 18:21” How long are you going to jump back and forth between two positions?

Jesus makes it clear here you can’t serve both!

“Serve Adonai with gladness. Enter His presence with joyful songs.”

Psalm 100:2 CJB

Today, let’s choose to celebrate the Father, let’s rejoice in the fact that He saved us and not get caught up in the trappings of the world! Things are always better when we celebrate our Father in Heaven! Have a blessed day rejoicing in the LORD!
