God's Got Your Back so Keep Pressing On!
(Submitted by Ralph, an on-line listener)
When we are tempted to be worried, depressed, discouraged, disappointed, fearful, doubtful, confused and pressured to give up, what should we do? Trust God, pray, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward!
What should we do when the way ahead seems dark? Trust God, for He is your light, pray, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward.
What should we do when we feel tried and tested at every point? Trust God, He will direct your path, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward.
What can we do when our finances are lacking, when you have prayed and have no solution? Trust God, He will meet every need, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward.
What should you do when many urge you to give up your faith, and you cannot see the way ahead? Trust God, He sees the end from the beginning, pray, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward.
What can we do when ALL things seem to work the opposite way it seems they should? Trust God, for all things work together for the good of those that love and serve Him. Pray, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward.
What should we do at all times in all our circumstances? Trust God, pray, take courage, have faith, and keep moving forward. "That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man." (Ephesians 3:16) "Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness." (Colossians 1:11) "For I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand...For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not feat; I will help you." (Isaiah 41:10 & 13)
Have you ever heard the recipe for stone soup?
Perhaps you heard the story about the village going through difficult economic conditions. Seems there had been a couple of crop failures and a season of drought. Times were tough, and families had taken to staying indoors rationing out what meager resources they had left. Even then there didn't seem to be enough. People were afraid, and hope seemed all but gone.
Then the stranger arrived. He told them he had the answer to their situation. He called for firewood and a large iron pot to be placed in the center of the village. He told them he would teach them the secret of making stone soup. He told them to kindle the fire and fill the pot with water. After the put began to simmer he reached into his robe and held up a large polished round stone. He dropped the stone into the water and...nothing happened. He quietly asked, "might anyone have a pinch of salt?"
Quickly one woman scurried back to her hut for the precious salt. Then he asked if someone might have a small carrot, and two people brought out a handful of them. Then it was a few potatoes, then more herbs and seasonings. Soon the pot was boiling away and the hearty healthy scent of a savory stew floated over the entire village. The atmosphere changed among the villagers as they brought out what they had to share. They enjoyed that "stone soup" for several meals, the pot always being replenished as each one contributed what they had. Then the rains came as the drought ended.
The villagers had learned the magic of making stone soup; each one sharing what they had so that all could be fed.
We're making stone soup. 2 Corinthians 8:14 says, "At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality." Can we ask you for a pinch of salt?
Will the Real Manager Please Stand Up!
from "The Treasure Principle" by Randy Alcorn
God is the owner of everything...He even owns me. God never revoked His ownership, never surrendered His claim to all treasures. He didn't die and leave the earth to me or anyone else...But understanding ownership was only half my lesson. If God was the owner, I was the manager. I needed to adopt a steward's mentality toward the assets He had entrusted -- not given -- to me. A steward manages assets for the owner's benefit. The steward carries no sense of entitlement to the assets he manages. It's his job to find out what the owner wants done with his assets, then carry out his will.
Once, a distraught man rode his horse up to the famous preacher John Wesley, shouting "Mr. Wesley, something terrible has happened! Your house has burned to the ground." Wesley reportedly weighed the news, then calmly replied, "No. The Lord's house burned to the ground. That means one less responsibility for me."
The Earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. (Psalm 24:1)
"The silver is mine and the gold is mine," declares the LORD Almighty. (Haggai 2:8)
Remember the LORD your God, for it is he who give you the ability to produce wealth. (Deut. 8:18)
You are not your own; you were bought with a price. (1 Corin. 6:19,20)
