Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in 1 Samuel 5-10 and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.
The thought shared in the post “Planning for What’s Possible” is that we worship and serve just one God. An awesome God providing victory in a person named Jesus who influences how we think and act.
The post “Decisions” has some thoughts about how to resolve uncertainties. The Lord gives wisdom and understanding from the experiences we go through.
As noted in “Excited Child of God”, the take away is to stay totally focused on God and worship the ONE who can deliver from our enemies just like Samuel was doing as leader of Israel when the Philistines engaged in battle with them.
Reflecting on “Path to Liberty”, the better way is to be called by God rather than led by a worldly king. A worldly ruler has one purpose; to obtain and maintain power to benefit themselves. The principles taught by Christ generate enthusiasm, incentive, and liberty that benefits all.
Emphasized in “Climbing to New Heights” was the need for perseverance. Saul was ready to give up on his undertaking but then an event took place that changed his life forever.
The major take away from the post “Toward Our Destiny” is that we want to place individuals in godlike positions but no king, leader of a nation, or government has all the answers. Only God knows the past, present, and future so the only guaranteed resolution was to provide us with the king of Kings or Jesus who is God in the flesh.
Keep up with my spiritual journey over the next few weeks either through following this blog or the Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God – A Spiritual Journey. Let’s share thoughts or ideas about applying our faith so we step ahead along the path to victory.
