Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Caught Up In His Love, with More Than Enough"
"and they spoke to Moses, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which the LORD commanded us to do.”
The principle of Cause and Effect is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The "Cause" of being caught up in the Wonder of His Love - produced the "Effect" of More Than Enough to do the service of the work God has commanded us to do.
Israel was so caught up in the wonder of building a home for God to meet with them, that they gave everything they had for days! The workers, because they 'Feared God and hated coveteousness,' (Exod.18:21), as faithful stewards (1Corin.4:1,2) of this money, went to Moses and reported that they had more than enough to build the Tabernacle. Moses then commanded the people to stop bringing their offerings.
Both the people and their leaders 'feared God and hated coveteousness,' because they Loved God more than anything else and more than anyone else. They were "Caught Up" in His Love! Oooh Rah!
Block out some time today for You and Your Commander, as you read and chew on Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner; and consider what our Commander has done for you (giving His pure and innocent life for your guilty and shameful life of sin) -
And what He is Doing for you today (transforming you more into His image and likeness as you obey and follow Him) -
And what He has done for you in the future of eternity (given you eternal life as sons and daughters of God, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ).........
You'll be 'Caught Up,' and swallowed up, in His Amazing Love. And then His Love for you will become your Love for Him! You'll love Him more than anyone or anything else in this world!
Then, because of This Love, the "Effect," is engaged and there is always 'more than enough' to meet the need.
This is not a clever formula but a spiritual principle. One of the "effects" of a true revival is the explosion of Giving; time, finances, labor, and lives for "the service of the work God has commanded us to do."
Our Commander is a Giver and so are His Warriors! Oooh Rah!
When our "Cause" is righteous the "Effect" will happen.
" And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work." (2Corin.9:8)
When God has all of our heart we have more than enough for all our needs. We have Him!! Oooh Rah!
