Your Desire Can Transpire

This day with God, dream big!

Step Ahead

Create in your mind
Where you would like to go
What you would like to do
And this dream will grow.

Receive direction
From clear pictures you view
Planning out actions
For this dream to come true.

Mindful of each step,
Each stumbling block,
Each solution,
Each door to knock.

Sketched in your mind,
Firmed up like cement,
As your future turns
Into the present.

A natural result
When the dream does transpire
Because it has been
Your ultimate desire.

Show Me the Way

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
   For I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
   For to you I entrust my life. – Psalm 143:8

The things of this world can be impressive. There are new apps coming out each day to choose from but as pointed out in the post “Receive the Big Picture”, the love of Christ given to us on the Cross is the most amazing choice we can make. There is no need for an upgrade because the work of Christ on the Cross is perfect.

So this day with God, use the navigation tool known as the Word of God as you journey through life. Be inspired by this song I Choose Jesus by Moriah Peters and daily download the Gospel message in your heart so you are led to a place beyond what you could ever imagine!

Receive the Big Picture

There have been some amazing inventions in technology over the years. I remember when we went to the first birthday of my niece’s newborn son. The town we went to was small many years ago but today it is one of the fastest growing suburbs of Austin Texas. Finding the location of the birthday party would have been very difficult forty years ago but made easy today with GPS navigation.

In 1 Corinthians 1:18-31, two viewpoints are considered; the world view and the God view. Pointed out is that the wisdom of this world has been made to look foolish at times. If you think about the history of the world, I think we could all agree that experts in various fields seem to miss what should be obvious. Wrong data is captured and various opinions interfere in the accuracy.

Yet, the God view allows us to factor in the amazing unseen qualities in order to receive the big picture. Those of faith accept what Christ did on the Cross. They are able to balance faith with life experiences in order to be more precise in their thoughts rather than only accepting one viewpoint and being closed minded to the amazing unseen qualities of God.

This day with You Lord, we have available to us more knowledge and the use of greater inventions than ever before. The vast Information available and the latest inventions are impressive but can’t match up to the forever amazing power of Your work on the Cross. This perfect work never needs an upgrade and is available to us at any place and at any time. Downloading the Gospel message in our heart takes us to a place beyond what we could ever imagine. Today, our navigation tool is Your Word and we follow Jesus! Amen.
