|THIS IS OUT OF ORDER, BUT I TYPED IT AND DIDN'T GET TO SEND IT ON THE INTERNET, SO NOW I CAN:|
Today is Friday already and I'm getting excited about Sunday! What a time we have each Sunday! God has been so good to us. Our church is growing right before our eyes. Last Sunday, we had 81 more people in the Auditorium than just a few short months ago. My, how God has blessed. I'm in Psalms today, and here are some thoughts:
1) A LIFESTYLE EMBRACES A THEOLOGY
Your view of God is much based on how you chose to live. You dictate who God is and what God will do based on your own view of life and desire to please yourself. Now the Bible has a word of this person: FOOL! In Psalms 14:1 it reads: "The FOOL hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Because he chooses to do "abominable works" he chooses to believe there is no God, because God would have consequences for his actions, and he doesn't want that. He is a FOOL, because to believe so, he must negate all truth around him that shouts out: "There IS a God!"
2) MADE TO CLIMB- Life has many forms of opposition that mount up before us like mountain ranges we see in our country. But the good news is that God made us to climb. Psalms 18:33 reads: "He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places." God has made us to climb! He has made our feet like the deer that run up and down the clifts. Don't despair dear Christian, start climbing!
3) WAIT ON THE LORD- Psalms 27:14 says: "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." When trials come that we have no answers for…. Wait on the LORD! Now don't sit around and wait on God to come through; but wait on the LORD like a waiter looks to meet every need the client has. Let us wait on the LORD to serve Him and He will strengthen our hearts in the midst of that kind of waiting. Last night, I prayed with 11 people. Three adults and eight children. My heart was strengthen. I still need over $100,000.00 before the year is over, but God strengthens my heart when I "wait" upon HIM! Do the same dear brother and sister. There is someone in need right now, go "wait" on them in Jesus stead!
Have a blessed day dear friend. Pastor Mike Mutchler
