Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"A Life of Separation"
"I will make a difference between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be.”
"Separation" is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. God "separated" Israel as a people for Himself (Lev.20:26); among all the people they lived among. God confirmed this "separation" with Pharoah, as Moses spoke in God's place "Let My People Go!" Now, God is going to dramatically demonstrate this spiritual separation in a "physical" way for all Egypt to see; in Goshen, where His people have settled!
Peace and well being will rest in Goshen while the rest of the nation of Egypt is in chaos; bloody water, frogs everywhere, lice, and future plagues everywhere but Goshen.
God has separated you, Warrior! You are in this world but you are not from this world. You're sanctified, set apart from a common purpose to a holy purpose)(John 17::14-19). Your citizenship is in Heaven (Phil.3:20) and you are commanded to be separated from the unrighteousness of this present world (2Corin.6:16-18).
Our spiritual separation has a physical expression in our conduct, our behavior, and our lifestyle- People Recognize Our Separation from the Mainstream of society. We live in "Goshen" where "...God dwells and walks among His people," (2Corin.6:16).
Goshen was God's physical presence demonstrated for all Egypt - we are also to be God's physical presence demonstrated for all the world to see as we walk among them.
I'm sure the Egyptians were really attracted to Goshen when they found out no plagues were there.
So also, this world should be attracted to our life, as a citizen of Heaven - and want to flee the plagues of sin in this world and find refuge in Jesus Christ, our Commander, as we have. And we'll be happy to show them how, by "always being ready to give them a reason for the Hope that is within us," (1Pet.3:15). Light up the world you live in and Flavor your relationships with the Salt of God's Love, making people thirsty for our Commander's Love! Oooh Rah!
