Lighted Path by Angela Overton 2 5/5 (2)

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).

Do you ever feel apprehensive to allow God to guide your footsteps? I most definitely have. One reason is because God doesn’t reveal all the details of His plan and that is intimidating. I like details, you know what I mean?
When we arrive at a place where God is not trustworthy with directing our footsteps, providing financially for us, leading us out of an unhealthy relationship – it is a place where we have placed confidence in ourselves or confidence in someone other than God.

Everyone Lives This Story
Can I trust my destiny to God?
Will God provide for me?
Can I trust God when I don’t understand?

When our journey takes us through curves in the path we weren’t prepared for – such as disapproval, criticism, unfair decisions, health problems or relationship woes – our walk with God may be challenged and our calling may be questioned.
Do not give up when life isn’t turning out how you expected it. Trust in God.

God’s plan is revealed by a lighted path, but oftentimes we will not know the destination. It’s a step-by-step and a walk-by-faith journey.

Sometimes the path He has us walk will bend and wind through the boundaries of our comfort zones, but that is because God wants us to grow and He also wants us to know that His ways are greater than our ways.

Proverbs 3:5-6 states, “Trust in the LORD withal thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Prayer: Lord, I pray Your word will lead me to Your perfect will. Direct my path today and help me to trust You with all of my heart and lean on Your understanding. I acknowledge Your sovereignty and Your power. Be a light to my path today. In Jesus Name.

Be the Connection bv Brandy Swinarton 1 5/5 (1)

As military folks we have the distinct privilege of an expansive reach to into this world. There’s no doubt we have been called to a difficult and ever-changing path, but oh, the opportunities the Lord has laid before us!

Military families know what it’s like to finally feel comfortable in our environment/skin and then receive orders to move on to the next location. I remember what this feels like…frustration, sadness, and sometimes, bitterness. We finally have friends, have just began to feel close to those in church, our kids are finally comfortable, and we once again are uprooted to a new place. Am I the only one who has gone to prayer asking why? Somehow, I’m certain you’ve been there too. Let’s move past these feelings for a moment and consider the culture of the Kingdom of God.

Kingdom culture looks something like this, “And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life” (Matthew 19:29).

The Bible is very clear we will endure feelings of loss, but when we begin to speak “kingdom” this multiplier happens. All that we feel we’ve left behind will seem so small in the light of Glory. When you walk into a new environment with the kingdom of God in mind, you see how imperative it is that you reach for Kingdom impact. If you’ve ever wondered what your purpose is in this transient lifestyle, this is it: connecting others to the Source. When the Lord places you in a military home, He is giving you a gift where you can “Be the Connection!”

The military is the conduit by which we have been given the privilege to fulfil to great commission to “go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). When you arrive at your new location, invite a solider/airman/seaman over for dinner, teach a Bible study, give that member a ride to church. You have Kingdom influence. Use it!

Folks, if you don’t connect to these souls, the enemy will. Let’s walk in full authority of the Holy Ghost and impact the field to which the Lord has called us. If you’re available, He can use you.

Be the connection.

God’s Book of Remembrance by Barbara Westberg… 1 5/5 (1)

“Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name” (Malachi 3:16).

When I was born, my mother started my baby book. For the first two years of my life, she recorded the momentous moments in my life. I still have that book, although it is old and tattered (rather like me). Looking through it, I learned when the first tooth broke through my gums, when I first smiled and cooed, and took that wobbly first step. Mother proudly recorded that I walked at ten months.

Nowhere did she write, “Barbara was so fussy today that I didn’t get a thing done,” although I am sure there were days like that. She did not write, “Barbara threw a temper tantrum today,” although some days I threw several. Nor did she write, “Barbara fell down six times today.” I did not find one negative memory in that book. Mother only recorded the good memories, the ones she wanted to pass down to me.

Our heavenly Father is not watching His children, pen in hand, ready to record every time we stumble or lose our temper. What does He put in His book of remembrance?

“God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewn toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister” (Hebrews 6:10).

He remembers every time we serve. Maybe it isn’t behind a pulpit, but behind the scenes. Maybe it isn’t in a classroom, but in a prayer room. Maybe it isn’t on the platform, but on outreach. He remembers the times we clean the church, make a blanket for the homeless, intercede for a lost soul, bake a cake for the minister’s family, visit the sick, or give an elderly person a ride to church. He remembers our labors of love.

When the enemy clicks his tongue and taunts us, “Shame! Shame! You really goofed up that time!” Answer, “Where in God’s book do you find that? I don’t see it.”

In God’s book you will find the momentous moments “for those that fear Him and think upon His name.”

Occasionally, I get out my baby book and flip through it. I don’t remember taking that first step or saying that first word. But there it is in my mother’s handwriting. At judgment you may be amazed to discovered what God has written in His book of remembrance about you.

Aiming for excellence every time… 1 5/5 (1)

God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts. However, in spite of our human imperfections, we can achieve excellence. This may not be true according to worldly standards, but according to the hope we have when we choose to live according to the laws of God, we can live a life of excellence.

We have so many examples in scripture of those who, in spite of doubt, unbelief, and sin, accomplished what God called them to do. David, who is called a man after God’s heart, cut off the skirt of Saul’s robe while he slept, and then repented. According to our standards, David had good reason for assaulting Saul because Saul was out to kill him for no other reason than jealousy. (see I Samuel 24:4-6) However, David chose a way that was more excellent, even though he was not perfect. He was a man who could be reasoned with, and would receive instruction, even from a woman. When Nabal returned evil for the good that David and his men had done for him by refusing to provide food for his men and beasts, David wanted to kill him and his whole household. But instead he repented of his ways, even thanking God for Nabal’s wife, who prevented him from committing this sin. (see I Samuel 25:5-34)

We have many other examples; we have Jonah, who did not want to do the will of God because of his fear and prejudice, Abraham and Sarah, who tried to bring the promise of God to pass themselves, but in the end, God kept His promise through Isaac. When we consider Daniel, who was said to have an excellent spirit, there doesn’t seem to be anything negative written of him. What we see written concerning Daniel is that he sought out God continually. We also see this in the life of David, who had many failures and battles, but also victories. Although we never read of any sin committed by Daniel, he was never called a man after God’s heart. It is possible to live a life of excellence before God when we choose to press steadfastly towards the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ. This week, pray that you will live a life of excellence before God!
