IT’S TIME TO SIT DOWN….

After the death of Moses, the Lord chose Joshua to lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land. Joshua 1:1-9 records: 1 “Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, 2 Moses my servant is dead, now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. 4 From the wilderness…………………….and unto the great sea ……………..shall be your coast. 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses so I will be with you: I will not fail you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of a good courage, for unto this people shall you divide the land for an inheritance, which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law , which Moses my servant commanded you: Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go....

TENDERLY…..I CAN HEAR HIM CALLING ME

When a person is trained to be a lawyer, they use the expression that they are “called to the bar”. There was a man born into moneyed gentry who trained to be a lawyer, but never practiced, possibly because he did not need the extra finance. He was called but never practiced. Some professing Christians are like that. They call themselves Christians but continue in the mindset of the world, anxious, worried and burdened with a load of care, unable to “let go” and allow Jesus to carry the burden. There is a place of rest we can access through Calvary, where, though still caring for others, or ourselves, we learn to trust our Heavenly Father with the circumstance and the end result. Anxiety is a worldly mindset. The inspired words of God through Paul to the Corinthian church, still speak to us today. 1 Corinthians 1:2 “….to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints….,” and speaking of Jesus in verse 5: “That in everything you are enriched by him, in all utterance and in all knowledge.” “Called to be saints..” Do we practice? How can I change my old mindset of anxiety? Romans 12:2 adjures us: “Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, acceptable and perfect will of...

DON’T DRIVE NEAR THE CLIFF EDGE!

Queen Victoria wanted to employ a new driver for her horse driven carriage. Three men were invited for an interview. The first man declared his driving ability of being able to drive a carriage within a yard of the edge of a mountainous track safely. The second man boasted he could skilfully and safely drive the carriage within one foot of the edge of a perilous track. The third man stepped forward, looked the queen in the eye and said these words: “Ma’am, I cannot profess to be able to drive skilfully near the edge of mountainous terrain as these two gentlemen, but I can guarantee I would keep as far away from any danger as possible.” The third man got the job. Why have I shared this story? Every Believer in Jesus Christ begins their spiritual, earthly journey after receiving Him into their heart at salvation. From here, He is our constant companion, sharing our joys and sorrows along the road as we learn to trust Him and allow the Holy Spirit to be our Guide. Along this journey truth is revealed to us and we learn to recognise the danger of pride in all its many forms, and how abhorrent it is to our Heavenly Father. The driver Queen Victoria employed was the one who professed to keep away from danger. A wise man steers clear of...

COME OUT FROM BEHIND THE TREES!

After they had sinned, Adam and Eve hid themselves from God, behind the trees in the garden of Eden: Genesis 3:8 “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.” God removed them from the garden of His presence and they inherited the consequence of their sin, living under the curse – (Genesis 3.) At Calvary, through the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ, the sin problem was dealt with and He gloriously reversed that curse. “To all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ, He gives power to become the sons of God.” Calvary restored the intimacy of fellowship we can have with our Heavenly Father. We can walk with Him in our garden of life – our daily circumstances. If we have ears to hear, we will hear Him calling our name to fellowship with Him. God wants to be included in all my daily “doings”, not just my crises. “In ALL thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes, fear the Lord and depart from evil,” Proverbs 3:6-7. When we sin, just like Adam and Eve, we want to hide in our shame and guilt, but our Heavenly Father...
