“Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”  John 8:47

 What are you hearing right now? Is it the voice of your situation? Is it the voice of the adversary speaking doubt, fear and worry or is it the voice of your Heavenly Father? A child cannot mistake the voice of their father. Even in a whisper, they will recognise it.

 As a child of God, you must hear what He says, and God, your father is always saying something.

In your brokenness, He speaks comfort.

In your trial, He speaks courage.

In your weakness, He speaks strength.

In your guilt, He speaks forgiveness.

In your storm, He speaks peace.

Your circumstance today may point you to death but God’s Word points you to life.

 So the question is: Who do you belong to? When you belong to God, His Word will find a place in your heart and even in the noise of your life, you will hear His voice. The lie of the enemy can never overshadow it for there is no condemnation for anyone who belongs to Jesus. That is your Father’s voice.  

 

 

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.”
