A Daily Promise

Guided to Stay Put – Gen 26

This is what happened to Isaac. Things were not too good and future wise did not looking every positive because of a famine in the land –v1. The seemingly wise and natural thing to do was to move out and go to a place where their needs could be met. But Isaac received definite intimation from the Lord – “”Do not go down into Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay in this land for a while and I will be with you and will bless you” – vv2,3. All anxiety and worry was dealt with by the promise and subsequent provision. Even when things were tight and difficult the Lord was up to making ends meet. The good news: Isaac responded correctly – v6. Later on he would testify – “the Lord has made room for us” – v22. You need to be aware when the Lord speaks into life and calls you to hold steady and not be too quick to rush into another situation. Better to stick with the Lord than launch out on your own hoping things will get better. Know in the economy of the Lord, He can make a little go a long way and reduce great amounts to nothing. You are in His safe and capable hands!

Thought for the Day

POSSESSION

One of the things for you to know and grasp is the spiritual truth that you have been called to be a divine possessor, that is, inheriting the choice factors that the Lord has lined up for you. Abraham and his people were to know and enter into an inheritance destined by the Lord, so you to are to know the blessing of enjoying the delight of a divine inheritance immediately within your life.  The promises of God that are expressed in the Scriptures are for your appropriation and realisation. They reveal that the Lord wants you not only to know Him but experience the spiritual and extraordinary blessings of His favour in this life as well as extending the same eternally. You are not to languish as a bankrupt but see what is yours in Christ and make them a reality here and now. Let this year be one where you enter into your great entitlements and do not be robbed.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Charles Hadden Spurgeon

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.

MEDITATION NOTES

TRULY BLESSED – 2 Samuel 6: 1-11; Psalm 112

What proved to be folly for Uzzah and a terrible mistake for David turned to great advantage to Obededom and his household. In his distress and dilemma David took the seeming only option open to him; he placed it in the home that was conveniently situated near-by. It happened to be the residence of a man by the name of Obededom. He could have resisted, having witnessed what had occurred, and rejected a home for the ark. But he welcomed the opportunity of providing a temporary dwelling place for the Lord until matters were sorted out.

He was to experience something beautiful and unique as a consequence. We are informed that “the Lord blessed Obededom, and all his household” v11. The next verse gives the reason – “because of the ark of God.” So much good began to be enjoyed by this man and his family from the moment the ark entered his home that it could not be put down to coincidence. There was a marked and obvious difference because all kinds of blessing began to occur that enriched all within the unit. The blessing of God wonderfully touched everyone and everything.

When we welcome the Lord with open arms into our lives and homes it is to great advantage. The most significant thing is to be blessed by the presence of the Lord. One should covet more than anything else His glorious presence and company because it is Him we need above all. Inevitably this leads on to much more. He is able to make known to us the great and worthwhile things that will enhance our persons, relationships, home, work, possessions etc. You can be truly and fully blessed by Him! Read Psalm 112 and see what it means to be blessed by God.
