DIVINE MOMENST – A HEAVENLY HABIT

Genesis 3: 1-13

It would seem from verse 8 that is was a daily habit of the Lord to come down at the cool of the day into the Garden of Eden to meet these two new creatures that He had formed. Without question, one could rightly call this occurrence ‘a divine moment.’ It was a choice factor in the life of these two people. The Garden was not simply ‘made for two’ as the old song goes. It was to become a venue of precious moments of a divine nature where the first pair would and should have come to know their God in depth of relationship.

1/. THIS WAS THE INITIATIVE OF GOD

Implied is the fact and truth that it was the Lord that condescended to come down and to move into the daily scene and routine, to keep up a regular accord with the pair that He had created for fellowship. Having planted them in this environment and in this big world, it was not His intention that they should face the future without some bond of oneness with Himself. He took the initiative and formed the good habit of coming to share with them Himself – precious and choice encounter! It surely was to make them see that they were partners with God and that they were vital to Him and His purposes.

2/. THIS WAS TO BE A MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCE

It was to be a very meaningful and memorable experience as spirit to spirit they communed in a high context of fellowship. There was no block or obstacle to a great time of communion and conversation when much from God’s angle would be communicated and where the pair could share of the day’s happenings. They were in the exciting stage of learning of Him and learning from Him, being tutored in things of relevance and worth. They could not have been taught by anyone better or greater. At the end of the day it was to be an enriching exercise.

3/. THIS WAS SOMETHING TO BE ANTICIPATED

Within their daily schedule and agenda they needed to develop a keen sense of expectancy on this front. A constant freshness needed to be sensed within their spirit, that this was a privilege and was to be the start of something new and that God was setting them up for something of note. The Garden was but the starting place! If the LORD God was excited and enthused about this so they needed to be. It was to be a moment to be momentous and create divine momentum.

4/. THIS WAS AN EVENT TO BE CHERISHED AND SAFEGUARDED

Nothing and no one should be allowed to hinder and stop this accord. Satan was jealous of it and it is known, broke the heavenly habit through their sin. Eve listened to the wrong voice and fell for his insinuations and so the pair was robbed of the most precious encounter that had been theirs. It had been the most fulfilling part of each day and now they were denuded of the Lord and the input that He had been making to them and their destiny.

The lesson is clear: one must not grow familiar with God’s visitations nor be insensitive to the work of the evil one to bring to an end our relationship with the Lord.

PROMISE TO BE APPRECIATED

How assuring that as one is inspired by LORD one desires to give one in joyful service to Him! It is a pleasure to be involved in sacred work that yields eternal reward and returns. The promise is most encouraging from 1 Cor 15: 58 ‘Therefore, my beloved brethren, be he steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the LORD, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the LORD.’ Your LORD and Master keeps an ever watchful eye on not only on what is done but how and purposes to recompense at an appointed time. Do your best at all times and when possible increase the labour. With such inspired activity you have much to look forward to in meeting Him and being richly compensated by Him.

CURRENT DANGER

It is always an ever present danger, the subtle work of showing off to gain attention and admiration. At the root of this us both pride and arrogance. It is rampant in the world at large. There us nothing wrong in wanting to be valued and even praised, but it can easily be overtaken by an inward, dominating will to be admired. Christ pointed it out with the Scribes and Pharisees and they did not appreciate His comments. Being a show off and bragging in anyway spoils a person hence the need to develop humility. Things may excel at times and when they do, keep them in proper focus and humbly accept their blessing. Do not permit such to spoil you being and person. He who was and is the greatest came to teach this lesson of humility – see Philippians 2: 5-7.

HUMOUR

When little Margaret returned from Sunday School she asked her father when their new baby would talk. He told her that it would probably not be for two years, since little babies don’t talk. ‘But they did in the Bible ‘, said Margaret. ‘The teacher told us this morning that Job cursed the day he was born.’

QUOTE – borrower’s bargain

A man borrowed some money from a friend to get out of a crisis.”Thank you very much for lending the money”, he said, “I’ll be eternally in your debt.” “That’s what I’m afraid of”, replied his friend.

PROMISE TO BE APPRECIATED 

There is an assurance given in God’s Word that if you are under duress because of insidious temptation, you will not be left to deal with it alone. There is adequate aid at hand that is able to infuse with wisdom, grace and power to be the victor. Hebrews 2: 18 “For in that He Himself was temptedI,  He is able to succour them that tempted.” It does not matter how many require His personal input at the same time, He is easily able to stand by and assist each one. He greatly strengthened Peter and Paul and countless others to obtain conquest. Be assured, He is at hand to afford all that you require so that you can more than master every situation. You will emerge triumphant and wear the crown of victory today!

ERECTING THE ALTAR 

If there was one thing every Israelite had to do was to learn how to meet God at an altar in order to know His presence and input. Abraham appears to set the tone, principle and standard in his long life. If he was to become anything of worth and achieve things of significance, he must know how to commune and fellowship with the LORD by the appointed  means. Elijah was a person and prophet who knew how to meet God in the right way and bring Israel into line with Him. Make sure that this is an integral part of your faith and life-style. It must figure as a necessity each day, a place where you meet the LORD and He meets you. If you miss out in this, you will out on all your future prospect and blessedness.

HUMOUR

Dr. Morris, the minister of Glasgow Cathedral, was former chaplain to Peterhead Prison. He tells how his wife came out to the prison and waited to give him a run hone. On one occasion, she was siting with her son in the car. David at that time was about five. A couple of prisoners’ wives and their off-spring arrived and waited at the gate to be opened to admit them for their visit. One of these children, catching sight of David said, ‘My Dad’s in there’. To which David replied with pride and innocence, ‘So is mine.’

QUOTE – a lightening touch

Watching lightening at night, a little girl said to her mother, ‘Is that God taking pictures?’

PROMISE TO BE APPRECIATED

‘With long life will satisfy him and show him my salvation’ – Psalm 91: 16. There is no doubt about it, the LORD gives life to start with and is able to lengthen one’s years. Those that honour Him can know and enjoy a long pilgrimage on earth. It is good to place yourself daily into His hands and let Him work out your future and fortunes. When Konrad Adenauer, the first chancellor of the Federal Republic was in his late eighties and still chancellor, he caught a heavy cold. His doctor, unable to be of much help, had to put up with Adenauer’s impatience. ‘I’m not a magician’, he said. ‘I cannot make you young again.’ ‘I don’t want you to’, retorted the chancellor. ‘All I want is to go on getting older.’ As you live to the LORD He will add both days and years that will be well spent and blessed.

CONTENTMENT

It is not only a good word, it is a choice delightful and experience. To live with a continual sense of peace and well-being is most fulfilling. Where is this quality factor to be discovered? A good question to ask. Well, He who is the Creator and Sustainer of all being and life is eternally contented, and He desires to share it with His creatures. He has a way of living inside and alongside of you and inspires with His assurances that He will wholly provide for your days ahead so you need not worry. Do not live a life of fretfulness when you can know His faithfulness to be with and secure all that is best for you. Let today be one of glorious contentment!

HUMOUR  

A young man was asked what books had most influenced his life, suggested two.’My mother’s cook book and my father’s cheque book.’

GOOD QUOTE

How to live – ‘You come into the world crying while all around you are smiling. Live your life so that you leave it smiling while all around you are crying.

My brother Joe had just remarked in a Sunday evening service that he was looking forward to going to heaven as his wife had gone before. He then sang a song ‘There is singing up in heaven . . .’ And he sung it with great gusto and pleasure. All applauded. He sat down and a moment or two later there was a crash on the back row. He had a massive heart attack and that was it. I sought to pray for him and I sensed the LORD saying, ‘Quit your praying, it is his home-call.’ On arrival at the hospital the doctor and staff sought to resuscitate but to avail. A lovely lady nurse said to my brother and I that she had not seen anything like it. My brother had such an attractive and magnetic smile on his face. When we saw him later, we, too, were arrested by it. A few hours later his son and daughter in law couldn’t believe it when they looked on their dead father. When they got into the car they laughed and said: ‘Well, Dad got just what he wanted.’ So when you leave this life, leave an unforgettable smile on your countenance!

PROMISE TO BE APPRECIATED

‘Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver Him: I set Him in on high, because he hath known my Name’ – Psalm 91: 14. What a guarantee! Put the LORD in His rightful place in your life and affairs and He will positively respond to your good. A two-fold assurance is revealed: deliverance and prominence. If you want to move into the best of circles and be rightly honoured, then make sure you respect the LORD and His Name. He is always in top spot and knows how to quietly exalt those who give Him His due. That opportunity is open to you in life and wise is the individual that takes note and fulfils His expectations.

MAGNETISM

A  magnet is a unique factor, it is made of steel and has the inherent ability to attract other steel objects to itself. When contemplating the extraordinary capability of the LORD He possesses this unlimited ability to draw to Himself creatures as mankind to Himself. It is by the power of His love that He quietly and dynamically attracts to Himself. The Cross of Christ is the most outstanding and memorable event of history. It was there where God disclosed His amazing, attractive love to switch men on to knowing and loving Himself. John 3: 16 states it: ‘For God so loved the world of mankind that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.’

GOOD HUMOUR

A little Presbyterian boy in an Anglican Church for the first time, watched wide-eyed as the choir boys filed in, clad in their white surpluses. With wonder in his voice, he turned to his mother and said, ‘Are all these boys going to get their hair cut?’

QUALITY AND QUANTITY 

This is what people usually want in the their dealing and experience in life, quality and quantity in good things. It is good to be  able to unequivocally affirm that this is what you have with God all times. In nature and practice He manifests these two unique and blessed factors. They are the glorious feature of His being and doings. God only does and gives the best and in fullness of measure. There is neither stintedness or limitedness with Him.

PROMISE TO BE APPRECIATED: 

“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him will I trust” – Psalm 91:2. This something you need to speak out and affirm if you are to experience the reality of it. Of course, you could have no one more superior or sufficient to expose you as a personal friend and know His immense power at your disposal. What ever you are called to face that would threaten to damage and destroy, He is always around and about to deal with every enemy so you can be in peace and a place of authority. He is not only All – Sufficient, He makes you sufficient. Your trust and faith will be justly rewarded today for the Almighty is with You.

Age, the passage of time or the amount of activity does not weary Him or lessen His quality to answer any given circumstance. The today, with all of its current demands is already known by Him and is covered in every detail. Live with this sense of His unchangingness now and discover what a wonderful and bountiful Person the LORD is! It is now your opportunity to prove it to be real.

Promise to be Appreciated

Being and Living in the Right Place. The psalmist truly points out the blessing of dwelling in a sure spot. He states in Psalm 91:1 “He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Jerusalem was always considered to be a great stronghold and could withstand immense attacks from formidable armies. But it could be taken! However, those who have the sense and faith to make Jehovah their stronghold are safe and secure from everyone and everything that would oppose. The Almighty is not misnamed but entitled to this unique attribute. Be sure, He is your security from the cradle to the grave, and beyond: in fact, forever!

An Unchanging God

You live in an ever changing world and even you are subject to such. Sometimes it is for the better, sometimes the worse. The good news is that your confidence rests in an unchanging God who is perfect and complete with infinite grace and attributes that He wills to show you in this life and the eternal ages to come. He will never ever be bankrupted or be in an embarrassed state where He cannot perform what is blessed and good for you. He purposes to prove to His creatures, including you, He is all sufficient and is ever hand to act in favour. So live today in this assured knowledge that He will not fail to turn up and work the wonder for you.

Promise to be Appreciated: Paul declares, “It is written, ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him'” – 1 Cor: 2:9. God is raising a divine Family in Christ and His great purpose is to bless each member of the Household. If you are in it, then your expectation level should be high, to taste of His great, eternal goodness. It starts now before you get to heaven. So begin to believe and receive from Him. Not only the promises to be assured of but experience the actual fulfilment. Today is YOUR red-letter day!

WORRY – ANXIETY

One of the awful killers of life is excessive anxiety. Many people are loaded with worry over many things. Yes, even little things are stockpiled and become a heavy burden to bear in mind and heart. They live on pills and potions to bring some relief. They live not realising that God truly cares and can answer the lot if placed into His hands. One of the important tasks is to learn by faith to cast each one into His capable lap and permit Him to show both His love and power. Don’t you know that He that created and runs the whole universe is quite able to look after you and all your Interests?

A PROMISE BEING FULFILLED

Trial and trouble: Christ knew this  and so affirmed: “These things have I spoken you, that in Me you might have peace. In this world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” – John 16:33. He reveals the real scenario of the Christian life. There will be conflicts and tensions that will beset the believer but in the centre of the being is a citadel of peace that is unnerved and unmoved. Christ is the One to be appreciated and copied. He is the altogether the Overcomer and enables all to overcome and have something to be cheered and to smile by. The world can be in upheaval but not you.
