July 2024 - The Pathway To Victory!

desk january2024 B

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end is the way of death." - (Prov 14:12)

Many of our troubles occur because we base our life choices on unreliable authorities, such as:

  1. Culture: Everybody is doing it. (Rom 12:2 TM) "Don’t become so well adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without…thinking."
  2. Tradition: We have always done it this way. (Lk 5:38) "New wine must be put into new wineskins."
  3. Reason: It seems logical. (Prov 3:5-6) "Lean not to your own understanding."
  4. Emotions: It just feels right. How can it be wrong when it feels so good?

All these are flawed because they come from within us and around us, but not from God. What we need is a perfect standard that will never lead us in a wrong direction.

The Word will never mislead us! (Jam 1:25) "But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty (the WORD of God) and continues in it and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does." (Psalm 37:4-5) "Delight yourself also in the Lord, trust also in Him (our Part) and He shall bring it to pass (God’s part). Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him (our part), and He shall bring it to pass (God’s part)."

Commit Your Way To The Lord

  1. Commitment is a function of faith. Like a child who leaps off the top bunk into daddy’s arms. Once they have committed to the jump, there is no going back to the safety of the bunk. But they do it because they totally trust their father. We need to trust the Father’s arms! (Mk 10:15-16)

  2. Commitment is the place where the biggest battles are fought. Moses sent twelve tribal leaders of Israel into the Promised Land to spy it out and bring back a report. Ten came back with an evil report and two came back with a good report. Ten focused on the problem and two focused on God’s promise. "As you have spoken in My ears, so I will do to you." (Num 14:28)

  3. Commitment is the place of separation. The Ten and the Two! Your commitment to anything will always separate you from those who aren’t prepared to commit. Eventually you will part ways with those who just won’t put their money where their mouth is.

  4. Commitment is the place were God reveals Himself. (Dan 3: 12-30) Daniel’s three friends answered the king and said, “If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from your hand, but if not let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the golden image which you have set up.” They were bound and thrown into the fiery furnace. Later Nebuchadnezzar said, “Did not we cast in three men bound into the midst of the fire? Look and now I see four men loose, walking amid the fire and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

When you stand up for Jesus, He will show up for you!

Yours for the Victory in 2024!
