A wonderful daily devotional to set up Christians for the day, god bless you..

Post by Guest on Sun May 10, 2015 10:03 am

First topic message reminder :

10
May
Luke 13:11
And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.
Imagine being bowed over for 18 years. All you would see is the dust on the ground. That was the predicament of the woman in Luke 13. Dust was all her eyes fell on, all the time, everywhere she went, until she became dust-conscious. Thank God she finally saw the beautiful feet of Jesus, who brought her good news and raised her up.

Now, dust is the devil’s food. The Bible tells us that God cursed the devil to eat dust all the days of his life. (Genesis 3:14) Dust represents death. (Genesis 3:19) The devil wants you to be like him—to fall flat on your belly, crawl and eat dust. To eat dust is to feed on your shortcomings and lack, until you constantly feel that there is so much in your life that you need to clean up. You may not be physically bowed over, but like the woman, you become dust-conscious and life every day is a struggle.

Having a dust-consciousness also affects the way you see others. You look at people’s faults all the time. You point out their shortcomings and rake up their past failures. When you are dust-conscious, you find your relationships robbed of peace and joy.

And if you, like the woman, keep looking at the dust, before long, that inward position of dust-consciousness becomes so entrenched that you become the devil’s food because dust is what he eats. God’s Word describes him as being like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:Cool

If you don’t want to be devoured by him, then lift your eyes above the dust! Instead of looking at your failures, look to Christ who has delivered you from every defeat. See yourself the way God sees you—righteous and holy in Christ. (Colossians 3:12; 2 Corinthians 5:21) You are not dust because you are not in and of the flesh—you are in and of the Spirit. (Romans 8:9)

My friend, the more you realize who you are in Christ, the more you will straighten up and walk the way God sees you—a new creation with His authority, power and overcoming Spirit!

Thought For The Day
Instead of looking at your failures, look to Christ who has delivered you from every defeat.

At a time when the interpretation of religious teachings seems to be so important (and it is), let's take a look at what happens when a good soul interprets a religion.

He did the "River" song I posted earlier. Leon Bridges of my hometown (my high school played his high school in football), a true source of local pride and a Texas treasure.

But if we must ... Smile ...

I know why this song sounds familiar now, too!
After you posted that "River" song I went and youtubed him. I remember now. I listened to a few, he's got a really nice smooth sound.
I meant to pm you about it but forgot.

Edit: I'm going to get a CD - yes I still like the idea of having music on discs - can you recommend the best one? Or point me to something special etc

He actually only has the one, but it's great -- "Coming Home." However, "My Love Stays" isn't on it; fans are hoping it will be on the sophomore effort Smile

Yeah forgot to edit the edit and say that I googled and already knew he only had a debut called "Coming Home"
I'm ordering it with some other bits later.

"I've got to have faith, I've got to believe
That the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings
Will come and set me free"

That's offensive how?

To be fair the lyrics aren't offensive, if you care to read them:


Oh yeah, Jesus (Oh yeah, Jesus)
You Got me Going (Got Me Going)
And I know just like I know
No way of knowin' (no way of knowin')
I gotta have faith (gotta have faith)
I gotta believe (gotta believe)
That the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings
Come and set me free (come set me free)

Oh yeah, Jesus (Oh yeah, Jesus)
You Got me Going (Got Me Going)
And I know just like I know
No way of knowin' (no way of knowin')
I gotta have faith (gotta have faith)
I gotta believe (gotta believe)
That the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings
Come and set me free (come set me free)

Jesus
Jesus
Jesus
Jesus
Jesus
Jesus
Jesus

Of course you have the freedom to stir, but that doesn't mean you have to use it. Cool
