The Age of Inspiration

“The greatness of being a believer is that no matter our current age, we can always aspire to His healing Word as we are continuously renewed in the spirit of our minds with truth. In the Bible, the children of God who walk before Him are never called has-beens or considered over the hill, for the inward man (the Christ within) can always grow as we think on and speak of God’s Word.” ~LMJ~

The Call of Jesus

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me– John 10:27. When you answer the call of Jesus today, you allow him into your heart. When you hear His wonderful voice, you may recall how he has been calling you all along, even since your childhood! It certainly will bless his life to bless your life for allowing him into your heart as you begin dining together on the bread of life (God’s Word, if any man hear my voice {Jesus’}, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me- Revelation 3:20), and enjoying your close personal relationship with him who gave his utmost for you.” ~LMJ~

For I Believe God

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

In the book of Acts, we have the record of the Apostle Paul traveling (as a prisoner) on a ship toward Rome. The ship was about to sail into a fierce storm. Let us pick up the story in Acts 27:

Acts 27:10-11:
-10: And {Paul} said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading {cargo, freight} and ship, but also of our lives.
-11: Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.

Because Paul was a believer, God could inspire him, this is why Paul “perceived” that trouble was imminent. Paul was correct! The ship came into a great storm, and the reason that this happened was that they (the Centurion watching over Paul, and the ship’s owner, and ship’s captain) believed, but their believing was incorrect. They believed in something that was wrong, when they should have listened to a man of God, especially when that man believes God’s Word.

Acts 27:20-22:
-20: And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest {a hurricane} lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
-21: But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.
-22: And now I exhort you to be of good cheer {I exhort you to believe with me now in enthusiasm}: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship.

The ship and all the people went into that storm with Paul onboard as prisoner as well. But because Paul believed God’s Word, he was delivered from the storm, and the same is true for us today, whether the storms are physical, mental, or spiritual (Isaiah 25:4).

Acts 27:23-25:
-23: For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
-24: Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
-25: Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

Sometimes we cannot help the circumstance we may find ourselves in, like what happened to Paul, but we can always be aware of God’s deliverance from any storm of any kind, because God is a refuge from our storms.

Often our believing not only saves us, but even those around us. When and where we believe what is recorded in God’s Word, not only will we receive, but when we do receive from God it will be inspiring to others. On that ship the people lost all hope, but our God is a God of hope – and this becomes ever more realized as we believe in the recorded Word and will of God. When we find ourselves believing in God’s Word, our hearts will be “of good cheer,” for life itself becomes exciting, and we can say as Paul did, “for I believe God.”

Believing in God’s Word Is

“Believing in God’s Word is believing in Jesus Christ, and therefore, believing in Jesus Christ is believing in God’s Word; this is how the preached Word becomes mixed with faith- Hebrews 4:2, and then effortlessly the living profit in the Word springs to life in one’s inner soul. Jesus stated in John 6:29, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. When you do believe this ― believe what is written and said by God (in the Bible), you will be enjoying the will of God!” ~LMJ~

Have a Lovely Walk Today (And Hey, Why Not Tomorrow as Well)

“How we act at any given moment can depend on how much of God’s Word we have placed in our hearts. How we act, believe, and move in any situation can and really should be based upon one thing and one thing only, the love of God.  To act and do with God’s love brings great reward to our lives. We have a zillion things to think about that are not recorded in God’s Word such as the rent, bills, the car, and the things we need to do just to get through the workday. You know that, I know that, and most of all God knows that as well.  God’s point is NOT if you think about anything but Him and His Word, then you are in trouble, and the Devil will get you! God knows that there needs to be a balance in life and all we really need to do is live – love.  God’s major point for us throughout His Word is that we can apply His love in all of life’s situations to enhance our spiritual perspective.  The more of His Word we have laid up in our minds, then the more we have in our spiritual treasure chest to rely on in life, in this life, so we can continue to walk in love.” ~LMJ~
