Just Don’t Let Go Of His Hand

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that God knows where both you and He are going.  We’re told that God does indeed guide us.  But, He guides us with His eye; not ours.

Whenever I read this message, I think about being a little girl and walking with my uncle.  I didn’t know my way around town.  He did.  I didn’t even know the street names, or which shortcuts got us where faster.  He did.  And then, there were those days out with my grandmother.  I had no clue what all we had to get done before we went home.  She did.  She had the route and all the stops planned out; even a stop for a favorite treat once in  awhile.  This is what it’s like to walk with God.  He knows so much better than we do.  He’s known the end from the beginning, including all the changes in between.  One thing I was always sure of when I went out about town with my uncle or my grandmother.  I knew I was loved, protected, and in great company!  God loves you! So, just don’t let go of His hand.

Staying In That Rest

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to come unto the Lord and rest…and to remain in that rest.  Quoting directly from the message: “Rest knows no fear.  Rest knows no want.  Rest is strong, sure.”

That tells me that when fear assails me, I must fight it.  When I feel lack of any kind, I must fight it.  I’m talking about lack within.  Lack of energy, lack of desire, lack of gratitude, etc.  Fear and lack go hand in hand.  “Rest is strong, sure.”  That means that I keep on keeping on, regardless of what it looks like, what someone says about it, what the general consensus may be, etc.  I stand on the Word of God.

No, we’re not to just go along lackidaisically.  But we don’t need to be immobilized by fear of anything.  We can be sure that God will provide, protect, lead, and guide us, etc.  We are to walk in that faith, not changing banners, but holding fast to the promises of God.  We are not moved, or motivated by fear.  We are held up, made strong, equipped by in the Word of God, and our faith in it.  The more readily we attack and fight fear and inner lack, the stronger faith becomes, and the more powerful the soul rest is.

His Name – Still Powerful Today

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that Jesus’ Name is still as powerful today as it was all those many years ago.

As I read the message, I thought about all the times I had to remind myself of that.  His Name is still as powerful today, as it was the day I got saved.  I thought about my grandmother, and her testimonies of Jesus and His love.  It occurred to me, that every time she spoke His Name to me, the power of that Name was drawing, guarding, and guiding me to where I am today.  Jesus said He would draw all men unto Himself when He is lifted up.  Nowadays, trusting in that wonderful Name is as natural as breathing.  It doesn’t occur to me to doubt; not for a second.  I know He’s got my back, no matter what may come along.

The message tells us that the consciousness of His Name can lift the mood, change the atmosphere, and elevate thought, attitude, conversation, and, even actions.  I’ve had countless experiences that went from “nothing goin’ on,” to “oh, wow, this is going to be fantastic!” -just because I heard that Name in a praise song, or because I, or someone else, spoke it.  Jesus…what a beautiful Name it is, indeed.  It has the power to stop you dead in your tracks, back you up just a little, and wrap you in it’s warmth, peace, and love.  Sometimes, that’s exactly what one needs, isn’t it?  It has the power to open doors, and to close them.  It has the power to raise a dead thing to life, or to lay something that should be dead and gone to rest…and finally set you free from it.

The message bids us to be ever conscious of His Name, breathing it.  It is, in the spirit, our very breath, I believe.  Here’s a challenge.  Find three or four songs about Jesus’ Name.  Play them back to back, and just bask in the joy, peace, power, and love that it brings with it.  Now, have a wonderful day!
