Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“God Guides a Surrendered Heart”
Text: Exodus 40:38
“For the cloud of the LORD was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.”
“God Guides a Surrendered Heart,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This last verse of Exodus summarizes the Book of Exodus; God’s Deliverance and His Promise to take take Israel to His Promised Land: God Guides a Surrendered Heart.
Each person had willingly brought their best offering to build the Tabernacle, and those who constructed the Tabernacle all surrendered their best to make a place for God to dwell among them.
Israel had the visible cloud of God’s Presence to Guide them; you and I as Faithful Warriors have Holy Spirit in our Heart to Guide us by Faith. Jesus promised Holy Spirit to us as our Guide to all Truth;
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”(John 16:13).
The Bible shows us how to do this:
“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”(Col.3:14-15)
The Peace of God is the whisper of God that drowns out all the voices that that demand our attention. This “whisper” rules in our heart as the decision maker, like an umpire in a baseball game.
This whisper was with Elijah in the cave:
“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.”(1Kings 19:11-12).
God tells us to “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in all the earth!”(Psa.46:10).
We Know God by walking with Him and spending time with Him every day in quiet devotion.
This “whisper” is our “Cloud” of God Guiding our surrendered heart.
With a song of salvation Isaiah sings:
“You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the LORD forever,
For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.”(Isa.26:3-4).
The Faithful Warrior walks with their Commander and King with a Surrendered Heart, Trusting in Him Forever! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
