I have seen something else under the sun:

The race is not to the swift
    or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
    or wealth to the brilliant
    or favour to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.”

Ecclesiastes 9:11

In the struggle between the stone
and the water – in time the water wins. Stone is harder than water, but in
time, the water erodes it. Whatever is in its path must eventually give way. Time
is in the hands of God, and each moment, day and year that passes, God is
working in your heart, if you allow Him. 

What is your struggle? What is
that situation that seems so hard, so unwilling to yield? We all fight common
battles, just camouflaged differently. Don’t allow the vicissitudes of life to
harden your heart and cause you to doubt God’s love for you. Allow the pure water
of God’s Word to refine you and melt you. No matter what your situation says,
there is a way out.

God often works through the
circumstances of your life to mould you for His divine plan. No matter how hard
your situation may look today, no condition is permanent. When it is God’s time
for you to move into your destiny, nothing can stop it. The water of the Word
of God will break the obstacles and open the way for a new season.

Water is always moving, always
flowing, as is the Spirit of God in your heart. Just as the water erodes the
stone over time, God is doing His process in our lives! we have to be
absolutely obedient to His ways; and when the time comes, we shall see His
glory.

 

 

May the living water of God’s presence wash away your fears and doubts today in Jesus’ name, as you allow Him to finish His process in your heart, because in time the water wins. 

 

 

THE SACRIFICE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”

LIFE ANEW

“When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.

We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.”

THE LORD HAS CHASED YOUR ENEMY

“How many of us like the people within the dying city, struck by famine, give in to fear, desperation and refuse to venture outside when God has chased our enemy away? Fear can cripple and torment us, and rob us of life’s opportunities. How many minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and even years have been wasted due to fear.”
