Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to learn from Jesus, ourselves; to go straight to the source of truth, life, and the way. There is no greater teacher than Jesus, Himself. That’s why it’s so important to have that personal time, that personal relationship with the Lord.
As children of God, we all have things to share with one another. We all have varying talents and gifts, and all are important to the family of God. (Ephesians 4) However, each one of us is unique, each one has his/her own past, own fears, own doubts, own barriers, etc. Jesus, knows each and every single one of us intimately. He knows us better than we know ourselves. It is Jesus, Himself, who will reveal to you that thing that keeps tripping you up. Usually, it’s you. – LOL It was in my case. Me, I mean; not you. Jesus will show you exactly how that one scripture in the Bible applies to your particular situation. I have a great example of that. “As far as the East is from the West, so far will I remove your sins/transgressions from you.” (Psalm 103:12) Do you know that that’s a double portion blessing? Yes. First, God will remove sins/transgressions you have committed that far from you. Secondly, God will remove sins/transgressions others have committed against you that far from you. Hallelujah! When I caught that in my spirit, my whole life changed. My outlook about my life changed. Victim turned to victor. Sinner turned to Saved…and savior-once you know your way out of the woods, you can lead someone else out, can’t you?
That also taught me something about that scripture that says, “The word of God is sharper than any double-edged sword….” (Hebrews 4) That scripture now makes me look for the other side…the side that is for my spirit, my heart. Jesus said “the good man out of the good treasure stored up in his heart, brings forth good things…” So, I know that I not only need affirmation, general education or training, etc., from the Word of God. But, I also need to apply that personally to my attitude(s), fear, doubt, whatever I may be going through, and feeling or thinking. Sometimes, my attitude really isn’t a very good one. God will let you know when you’re thinking is stinking. He will also let you know how to get it realigned with Him. He loves us. **If you don’t know the Lord personally, anybody can come up to you and say, “I am He.” Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice.” But, if you never spend time with Him, and learn yourself, from Him, how will you know it when you hear it?
