Listen and Believe

A post on being courageous along with inspiration from the song “Voice of Truth” by Casting Crowns.

This Day With God

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God I will praise His Word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? – Psalm 56:3-4

Some thoughts were posted at “Calming the Storm” about how fear can be overcome as we focus on the help of Christ and His unlimited power to calm he storms. Our fears can subside when we rely on this power to calm the storm and are prepared to take swift action with faith.

As the song Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns points out, the world tells us we’ll never win but the voice of Truth tells us a different story. The voice of Truth says do not be afraid but choose to listen and believe.

Finish the Race as Champion

This day with God, there is no need to make things harder than they should. Use His power with the second wind of the Holy Spirit. Take the liberty to claim your destiny and bring Him glory as you finish the race victoriously!

Step Ahead

There may be days
Of doubt but hold on
For there is always hope
As a new day will dawn.

For you were created
For the high destiny
Of running to the end
For a sure victory.

A purpose for glory
Running this race on earth,
And qualifying for
The next one set forth.

Gaining victory
In this life now
And eternity
With power endowed.

By letting God in,
You will begin
To put this power
To work until the end.

Poem by Mark Shields – © 08-27-2020
Inspired by “This Day with God Devotional – Hebrews 2:5-13

Press Onward and Toward the Prize

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

In the post “Spirit Aflame”, thoughts were shared about a man possessed by demons who was doomed but with the help of Jesus was changed. Transformed to the point that he enthusiastically became a follower and joyfully told others about what Jesus had done in his life.

We can do the same as we find joy from our past, excitement for what’s to come about, and thankful for the path laid out. We can gain what the song Soul On Fire by Third Day points out to restore the joy, the wonder, the passion, and enthusiasm for each day.
