Today’s Daily Light:

God Demonstrating that ‘He Is’…   The Eclipse…  

Romans 1:20   Paul says “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made‘so that’ men are without excuse.”

The moon has a radius of 1079 miles and maintains an average distance from the earth of 238,855 miles.   The sun has a radius of 432,288 miles and is 92,955,807 miles from the earth.   And so what is the chance, just out of blind luck, that 2 objects moving in space with such different radius size and so far apart…that they align to the eye of ONLY viewers on planet earth in this geo zone we refer to as the ‘path of totality’…where this alignment can best be viewed to capture the most precise 2 minutes of the alignment…the moon passing in front of, or covering over, the sun.  ?  What is the chance of this occurring?   None…as to chance.

You owe it to yourself to study from some of the top minds in theoretical physics..many of who do not profess Christianity…but through their observation of science have come to a theoretical conception that is now known as the Anthropic Principle:

Wikipedia definition:  the anthropic principle is a philosophical consideration that observations of the Universe must be compatible with the conscious and sapient life that observes it.

Basically the principle is saying that from what can be ‘seen’ in science as relates to our universe…it appears as though ‘all’ of what can be seen and how it all works and holds together…was designed to be viewed from planet earth…like it was put on display to be preferably viewed from planet earth.

So ‘huh’…wonder how that happened…and why ??   No..I don’t wonder how or why.

So today…use this glorious and wonderous event of the Elipse to praise and worship God…our Creator.   He created ‘all’ of this for us to see His glory…to have a super sense of who He is and what He can do.

Father….I honestly am blown away by how amazingly powerful and smart you are.   My poor little mind cannot even begin to fathom all this.   But in the place inside me..in my spirit…I ‘know’…I know that you are the Creator and sustainer of it ‘all’….and of me.  And I am thankful that you are for us and not against us…that you say you love us.  Wow…and thus how safe we are…in your powerful and eternal hands.   I praise you and worship you Glorious Lord and God.   You alone are my God and I will proclaim your name before all.  Amen

Daily Light – August 18, 2017

Today’s Daily Light:
This Week we will ‘Graze’ in the Word to remind ourselves of who He is..and who we are and what we have ‘IN’ Him 
 
The verse for today is Jesus talking to Nicodemus…. GOD talking here….this verse is like a 20 oz filet mignon with a loaded twice baked potato on the side. 😊 .   Read it…graze in it…absorb the truth in it….
John 3:19-21  Jesus said “This is the verdict (the bottom line): Light has come into the world (Jesus), but men loved darkness instead of lightbecause their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.   But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, ‘so that’ it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
Think of all the people around us everyday…in the work place…social situations…at the grocery store….your neighbors…family.   I’m talking about the ‘good’ folks all around us…Christians and non.  Think about how all of us seem to be, to some degree, trapped on the hamster wheel of the game of life…working, consuming, seeking our fulfillment and happiness in this temporary worldly realm… our love for God/Jesus is a faint second to our investment in this temporary wheel.   I know this because I have spent a lot of my life on that wheel…almost feeling ‘trapped’ at times…  Yes..I am a believer…but the more time I spend in the word/light…the more it shines on my wheel.  I have tried to disguise my wheel so it doesn’t look like a wheel..hang plaques with bible verses on it 😊…. I view myself as a guy who really does seek to please and honor the Lord with my life.. while I run on my wheel…oh..how I love my wheel…I keep it shiny and greased and invest a lot of time and energy in ‘my’ wheel.   But the word/light tells me that my wheel relates to mostly my own selfish desires..not evil desires…just the ‘caught-up’ in the cares-of this life in things that are not eternally oriented.   Sooo…what to do…and the answer is to ‘press on’…spend more time in the light…God’s word…time with Jesus…because I realize there is a war to be won….and I am not speaking about our eternal salvation…no….Jesus accomplished ‘that’ for us on the cross…in what He did that we could not do for ourselves…He alone is our salvation…no…I speak of the daily war of our demonstration to obedience to Christ…the demonstration of our love for Jesus in all we say and do…our internal ‘taking up of our cross’…daily….where the demands of the Cross come in contact with the demands of our sin nature….where we must continue to learn ‘through’ faith and believing that God’s way and will are better than what our fallen mind tells us is the path to happiness…Sooo…I know I must continue, to demonstrate to Jesus my love for Him..to fight that fight…to seek to increase my production of fruit.    And it is a fight….and we must keep on keepin on and through our faith in Jesus…what He says and can do in and through us….we seek to hear Him say ‘well done good and faithful servant’…wow…I really want to hear Him say that……but key is to see the light and truth and seek to walk in it as much as we can ‘so that’ we can be light to the world around us.   It ain’t easy…seeking to walk in the light of truth..we are at war with the dark side….But we have the winner on our side…Jesus..and He promises to keep us and bring us home.   We can do all things ‘through’ Him…it is not about that He can’t take care of His end of the deal…He is MORE than able…the issue is with our heart’s desires…because we just don’t let enough light into our daily reality..We have to ‘stay’ in the light in order to see the darkness…that’s what light does..it penetrates darkness…illuminates...soo…Go for the light…

Daily Light – August 17, 2017

Today’s Daily Light:

This Week we will ‘Graze’ in the Word to remind ourselves of who He is..and who we are and what we have ‘IN’ Him 

Psalm 28:7  “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.  My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.”

Psalm 112:6-7  “Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.  He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”

Psalm 15 (all)   “Lord, who may dwell in our sanctuary?  Who may live on our holy hill?  He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellow man, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.  He who does these things will never be shaken.”
Because of ‘grace’…because of the indwelling of God’s Spirit…we have the opportunity and capacity to walk in a fellowship with the Lord that no matter what comes our way…the good, bad, and ugly…we can never be shaken …to be that man/woman that through a walk in faith…through trusting His power that is for us and in us…through spending time with Him so He can duplicate His character in us…we can experience His presence in our lives now…dwell ‘in and with’ Him now through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit…and such is the reason we were created….’so that’ we can know the only true God…allow Him to reproduce Himself in us…’so that’ He can enjoy us and we can enjoy Him…’so that’ we can be a light to the dark world…the all of who He is in us and to us is more than just for our individual blessing…we are to be light to the world….so shine dear ones…shine…and may your heart leap for joy as you give thanks to HIM.

Isaiah 40:31   “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 43:10-11   “You are my witnesses, declares the Lord, and my servant who I have chosen, ‘so that’ you may know and believe me and understand that I am He.  Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.  I, even I , am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior.”
    
The Christian life…our daily walk…should be viewed as a journey that is progressive in nature…we are always seeking to move forward ‘in’ our knowledge and love of God.  It is in and through our position in Jesus Christ, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, wherein we have the basis, the position, the structure and means to ‘walk’ our life long walk through ‘faith’ in who God and Jesus say they are and what they have done…what they will do…that we believe this and our ‘walk’ is a demonstration…through faith and believing…that we truly believe.   Do you get that?   If we say we believe…then we need to walk like we believe.   In order to do ‘that’…we must be empowered and led by God’s spirit, which lives inside us.   We believe..thus ‘faith’ is activated and we walk in faith…the word of God is our lamp and roadmap…we believe and we press on….we fall at times….we get weak and weary at times…but because we are ‘in’ Christ…we will renew our strength, we can soar in the spirit of truth…and walk it out….staying focused on the path that leads to eternal life.   Amen.

Hebrews 11:1  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
Hebrews 11: 6   “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Psalm 119:105  “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”                 
Father…. ‘for sure’ I know that you ‘are’.  May we live a life today that proclaims that we ‘believe’ in You and we are ‘sure’.   Help us through activating ‘faith’ be sure and know that you are God and Lord and Creator and that you reward those who seek you.  Help us to seek you ‘so that’ we will remain ‘sure’ in all we think and do and say.   I know how easy it is for me to get distracted with the busy-ness and cares of this present world.   Help me to be in your ‘word’ sufficiently to give me sufficient light to always remain ‘sure’….to cause my spirit inside me to remain solidly in contact with You.  Father…I need You..I am dependent on You…through faith…I believe…I am sure.   Amen

Today’s Daily Light:

This Week we will ‘Graze’ in the Word to remind ourselves of who He is..and who we are and what we have ‘IN’ Him 

1 Thessalonians 2:13    “We thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.”

1 Timothy    “We have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.”

Great Lord…we put our hope in you alone.  You are the Creator of life.  You are the only means to eternal life.   Because we believe in you, trust you, put our total faith and hope in YOU…your word dwells in us and ‘works’ in us.   Help us to read and study your ‘word’ ‘so that’ it can seep down into our souls and do its ‘work’.   You and Your word are one.  Help us to see that this week…Amen

Today’s Daily Light:

Fight the Good Fight

The Apostle Paul…in writing to Timothy, said in I Timothy 6:12-16: “Fight the good fight of the faith.  Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.  In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and to Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ which God will bring about in His own time – – God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, who no one has seen or can see.  To Him be honor and might forever. Amen.”

Father…we have sooo many distractions in our minds…the default system of the sin nature inside us seeks to deceive us and keep us busy chasing shadows of things that can only provide short lived happiness…thus we must ‘fight the good fight…’so that’ we can take-hold of what is of eternal ‘substance’..and not just chase the shadows of temporary and meaningless things.    You…great Father..give us the power and energy to fight the good fight…to win the prize for which you have called us…to fight and press on….for You alone are worthy.   Help us today, through time we spend in Your word..to see this reality..to fight the good fight…because You are worth it.   Amen
