One Choice At A Time                                                                                        

By   Joyce Meyer

 

“Are you enjoying the life and blessings of God in your everyday life? Or have you made a series of choices resulting in disappointment, pain, or feeling that everything you do requires great effort and produces ? If so, there is hope for you! Don’t spend your time and energy mourning all the bad decisions you have made, just start making good ones.

 

The way to overcome the results of a series of bad choices is through a series of right choices. The only way to walk out of trouble is to do the opposite of whatever you did to get into trouble -- one choice at a time. Maybe the circumstances of your life right now are the direct result of a series of bad choices you have made. You may be in debt because of a series of bad choices with money. You may be lonely because of a series of bad choices in relationships or in the way you treat people. You may be sick because of a series of unhealthy junk food, not getting enough rest, or abusing your body through working too much and not having enough balance in your life.

 

You cannot make a series of bad choices that result in significant problems and then make one good choice and expect all the results of all those bad choices to go away. You did not get into deep trouble through one bad choice; you got into trouble through a series of bad choices. If you really want your life to change for the better, you will need to make one good choice after another, over a period of time, just as consistently as you made the negative choices that produced negative results.

 

No matter what kind of trouble or difficulty you find yourself in, you can still have a blessed life. You may have suffered some losses, perhaps some things you will never get back. You cannot do anything about what is behind you, but you can do a great deal about what lies ahead of you. I believe if you are really faithful to God, He will even give you better things than you would have had previously. You are never hopeless with God! With God, “plan B” can be even better than “plan A” would have been. God is a redeemer; He causes bad things to work for your good; and He will always give you another chance. If you have a situation that is too big for you to solve, then you are material for a miracle. Invite God to get involved, follow His directions, and you will see amazing results.”

Faith Like a Radar                                                                                         

By    Stan Toler

 

“I have been reading biographies of great people since I was in grade school. People of faith stretch me mightily in my relationship with the Lord. Over the years, I have enjoyed reading biographies of Bresee, Moody, Wesley, Asbury and Mueller.

 

I especially enjoyed reading about George Mueller, one of my heroes in the faith. The following story about Mueller’s faith is my personal favorite.

 

George Mueller of Bristol received more than $1 million for his children’s orphanage over a 60-year period. He never asked for a penny; rather, he always prayed it in!

 

The captain of a ship on which George Mueller was sailing told the story of a trip on which there was a very dense fog, and the captain was on the bridge for 24 hours, without ever leaving the helm. Mr. Mueller came to him and said, “Captain, I have come to tell you that I must be in Quebec on Saturday afternoon.”

 

The captain replied, “It is impossible.”

 

“Very well, then,” Mr. Mueller said, “If your ship cannot take me, God will find another way. I have never broken an engagement in 57 years, and I won’t start now. Let’s go down into the chart room and pray”

 

The captain looked at Mr. Mueller and thought, What a lunatic! I’ve never heard of such “Mr. Mueller,” he said, “do you know how dense this fog is?”

 

“No,” he said, “My eye is not on the density of the fog, but on the living God who controls every circumstance of my life!” He knelt down and prayed a simple prayer. When he finished, the captain knelt to pray, but Mr. Mueller his hand on the captain’s shoulder and said, “Since you do not believe, don’t pray. God will answer, Captain. I’ve known my Lord for 57 years. There has never been a day when I failed to get an audience with the King.”

           

“Get up, Captain. Open the door and you will find the fog has gone!” The captain got up, opened the door and saw that indeed the fog was gone. And on that very Saturday afternoon, George Mueller kept his engagement!

 

           “Faith is like radar that sees through the fog –

                       the reality of things at a distance

                       that the human eye cannot see.”                        – Corrie Ten Boom”

Bible History: Be Careful Whose Advice You Follow                                      

By   A. W. Tozer

 

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15

 

No man has any right to offer advice who has not first heard God speak. No man has any right to counsel others who is not ready to hear and follow the counsel of the Lord!

 

This rule of listening only to those who have first listened to God will save us from many a snare, for in any group of ten persons at least nine are sure to believe that they are qualified to offer advice to others.

 

It seems that in no other field of human interest ready to offer advice as in the field of religion and morals. Yet it is precisely in this field that the average person is least qualified to speak wisely and is capable of the most harm when he does speak.

 

For this reason, we should select our counselors care­fully, and selection with it the idea of rejection.

 

David warns against the counsel of the ungodly and Bible history gives examples of men who made a failure of their lives because they took wrong advice.

 

It is especially important that young people learn whose counsel to trust. Having been in the world for such a short time they have not had much experience and must look to others for advice. Those who boast the loudest of their independence, for example, have picked up from someone the idea that independence is a virtue, and their very individualistic is the result of the influence of others. They are what they are because of the counsel they have followed.”

Christ's Victory Rightfully Belongs to Us                                       

By   A. W. Tozer

 

“…In all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren…   Hebrews 2:17

 

“Is it possible to be a true Christian and still suffer in the doldrums of discouragement?''

 

This is a question that we are hearing often. Frankly, l cannot assure you whether Christians should know discouragement or not: l can only tell you that they all do!

 

Inwardly, they are often heavy-hearted, defeated, unhappy and a little bit frightened – yet they are Christians! 

 

What we need, brethren, is to get the true scriptural vision of our victorious Lord, our victorious human brother. Paul wrote to the Philippians about Jesus Christ humbling Himself and becoming obedient even unto the death of the cross, and then: ''Wherefore, God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name'' and ''every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God, the Father.”

 

Now, that is our victorious Lord, our victorious human brother.

 

Someone may say: ''It is no great news to say that God is victoriously.

 

But what we read in the New Testament is that God has joined His nature to the nature of man and has made a Man victorious, so that men might be victorious and overcoming in that Man!

 

God has made Him to be Head of the Church and He meanwhile waits for the time of His returning, guiding and keeping and instructing His Church. This He does by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God!”

The Dangers Of Perfectionism                                                                  

By   Bob Gass

 

“"I depend on Christ's mighty power that works within me."             Colossians 1:29 NLT

 

Excellence should always be your goal, but perfectionism will be your downfall. The people who change this world are not perfect – they're just forgiven. They've learned to make the most of their mistakes. Solomon says, "The path of the just... more and more unto the perfect day" (Pro 4:18). It's only when you walk in the light you already have, that God gives you more!

 

Perfectionists never attempt anything new because they're always looking for – a perfect situation! Winners on the other hand, know that faith overcomes every obstacle. John says, "The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith" (1Jn 5:4 TM). Did you get that? Faith doesn't wait for the right circumstances – it creates them!

 

Look out; perfectionism will keep you from discovering your own creativity, for creativity is messy. If you grew up in a home where appearance was more important than growth, you'll have trouble handling the mess you have to go through in order to accomplish anything. Furthermore, you'll always be disappointed, because you're setting a standard that nobody ­including you – can ever reach. So what's the answer? Step out and do what God has told you to do. If you fall, you'll be stronger when you get up. If you make mistakes, you'll be wiser on the other side of them. Stand up today and declare, “I depend on Christ's mighty power that works within me" (Col 1:29). After all, what more do you need?”
