AN IN MESSAGE FOR TODAY

Disappointments are bound to come your way but you must learn to deal with them in an effective manner and make them serve you. You can turn them on their head by make them into God’s appointments in that they are a challenge toi faith and ability in God to deal and dispense them with authority and accomplishment. Regard them as stepping stones not stumbling-blocks. See them as a royal staircase to choice achievements. Never forget: you were born to win! Joseph was enabled to deal with his and see where it brought him!!

WISE WORDS

Never forget to be truthful and kind .Hold these virtues tightly. Write them deep within your heart. If you want favour with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. Proverbs 3: 3,4,5 Living Bible

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

REVELATION ON THE FUTURE LIFE IN HEAVEN – John 14: 1-3; 1 Cor 2: 9:10; Phil 1:23

The Scriptures do make known the fact that there is an after life and that people will find themselves in one of two places, heaven or hell. There is revelation on both. There is an unfolding of heaven in promises by Christ when he said he was going there and in heaven were many abiding places – John 14;1-3. The assurance is that He would return and take His people back to this eternal dwelling place. The disciples had seen Him make a glorious exit to heaven but it will be whole Church Family that will welcome His second advent and their own supernatural exodus to heaven.

Paul gives added information and states in 1 Cor 2:9,10 that “ Eye hath not see nor ear heard what God has prepared for those that love Him . . . .”.  This present life with all of its pleasantries and delights are but a shadow of what is to be known on a bigger and grander scale in that new realm. Our heavenly Father has been planning and preparing something absolutely staggering for His New Family. The best will only be good enough as far as He is concerned. Heaven itself will be a mind-blowing experience for the child of God.

No wonder Paul the apostle had this desire and conviction when he was on the border of leaving this world. He said in Phil 1: 23 “to depart with Christ is far better”. What was ahead for him superseded anything this immediate world could offer. The present was and is a fading factor and will disappear when the more wondrous comes into view and realisation. Get a clear conviction in your heart re –heaven and make sure you are ready when it suddenly appears! Your new home and destiny is soon to be!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

TRANSCENDENT THOUGHTS AND WAYS – Isaiah 55

The Lord seeks to lift His people’s considerations on to a much higher level in terms of thinking and procedures. They had known only small concepts and conduct on a low human and natural plane. It was now time for them to have their minds thinking dramatically transformed and for them to start seeing things from a divine angle. It would be far better. Having promised them completely pardon and forgiveness it was imperative to strike out on a greater accord and for them to have a completely new perspective on life altogether. No longer were they to think as the other nations thought and acted.

The contrast is shown in v9 “For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” They were to be initiated into the extraordinary and know the tremendous ideas and dreams that God had in mind for them and the route by which they would be accomplished. They were not simply idealistic and unrealistic but were capable of being brought to pass. Being joined with God in His understanding and planning was much better than settling for their own worthless considerations.

A promise is given similarly to all those who have been born again and are in the kingdom of God and know the presence and presidency of the Holy Spirit. Paul quotes an Old Testament promise and expresses its relevance to every son of God in 1 Corinthians 2: 9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by His Spirit, and His Spirit searches out everything and shows us even God’s deep secrets.” He has much to make known to you of His mind and plans as you walk with Him.
