Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
Yep…That’s a Spinning Wheel (hope picture of spinning wheel came through)
Wikipedia says: A spinning wheel is a device for spinning thread or yarn from natural or synthetic fibres.
Romans 10:17 Paul wrote “Faith..comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”
Hebrews 11: 1 Paul wrote “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do see.
We hear at 2 levels….we receive communication at 2 levels…internal, and external. When something comes to us through our external senses, i.e., we hear, we see, we feel, we smell. We are constantly surrounded by external communication. External communication them seeps down into our ‘understanding’…where we process and reason…where we filter and organize the communication into whatever degree of input or use it has for us. And then we have the internal level of communication that is the function of our spirit…our internal spirit…the level of consciousness…the deepest ‘self’…where we are ‘aware’ at the deepest level. And it is within this level…where God’s Spirit merges with out spirit…where ‘divine’ knowing takes place. And it is ‘divine’ level of knowing where we are absolutely sure and certain.
Think of faith as a communication line…like your internet line, phone line, or wifi. It is the line that connects us to ‘divine’ knowing. Such level of knowing is sure…the surest sure…it is certain..absolute. It is substance..not shadow. Faith is not a leap..not a gooey…hoped for non-substance. It is of God-made, divine substance.
Hebrews 11 is often referred to as the ‘by’ faith chapter…Paul gives us many, many illustrations of what people did or accomplished ‘by’ faith. Read it.
Faith comes to us through hearing the word of God..the word of Christ…through the inspiration of God’s Spirit speaking to our internal spirit. When we come to Christ…or when we became what we refer to as ‘being saved’…when we first became a believer…God sends His Holy Spirit to ‘live’ inside us. The Spirit then hooks-us-up to the divine knowing communication line…called faith…a real, solid substance, certain, sure, communication line. And it is through the flow of communication from God to us…at the divine level…at the mystical / unseen spirit level…we divinely KNOW…we are sure, certain, that His is ours and we are His.
Now what the heck does a spinning wheel have to do with this 😊. Well….If you don’t know what one is…go to youtube or such and watch one in action. Basically..it was used (and some purist still use them) to weave yarn to make clothes and other products that are made of natural fibers….it makes stuff…it weaves…through spinning. You have to sit at the device and learn to use it…you have to ‘move’ it…you have to work with it to get it to do what it is designed to do….called ‘spinning’.
When we spend time in the word…when we are thinking about God…when we are meditating on Jesus….when we are praying….when we worship….when we are in ‘communication with God’….we are spinning….we are making something…we are growing our spiritual man..our faith line.
The more we spin through/by our ‘faith’ line….the more we receive and send communication…the stronger the line becomes…the longer it becomes…the deeper it becomes rooted.
When you pray and spend time with the Lord…when you are thinking on Him..His will..His ways…time in His word…..see yourself as sitting at a spinning wheel and …plugged in, through the line of faith, to your heavenly Father…and just sit there and spin…knowing that you are producing something at the divine level. Over time this is where you grow….this is where all strength and power and understanding comes from…sitting at the spinning wheel, connected by ‘faith’…to your heavenly Father.
Okay…spin…spin in the morning…in the middle of the night….when you walk…when your are in your car…..and your faith will grow and get bigger and you will produce more eternal fruit…and that is why we are here…what we are called to do….to produce eternal fruit for Jesus….spinning is ‘the’ spiritual discipline where through the gift and power of ‘faith’ we are connected to source and supply.
