Good Morning Warrior!
Happy Mother’s Day to all our Mothers on this Lord’s Day today!
Our Word for the Day today is:
“Hang On To Godly Perspective!”
Text: Num. 21:3
“And the LORD listened to the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites, and they utterly destroyed them and their cities. So the name of that place was called Hormah.”
“Godly Perspective,” is on our menu for Breakfast this Mother’s Day Sunday Morning. Praise God for a Mother’s Godly Perspective that encourages her heart through all the heartaches of life!
Israel got a glimpse of Godly Perspective when they made this vow to utterly destroy all the people and cities of these Canaanites - if God would deliver them into Israel’s hand.
Now, they were rehearsing God’s Promise 40 years ago! They were positioning themselves to gain a Godly Perspective that God Keeps ALL His Promises!! And God ‘Listened to their vow and Delivered the Canaanites into the hand of Israel.’
Perspective is defined as: “a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.”
In other words, Godly Perspective is our attitude toward God’s Promises, His Word, and our Treasure. Godly Perspective will “set our mind on things above, not on things that are on the earth.” (Col.3:1-2) morningHe has proven Himself through all the ages of Time to Be Faithful - To Do What He Says He Will Do!
We need to “Hang On To Godly Perspective,” when we are in the battles of life! Ooooh Rah!
I remember a great old chorus that’s still a ‘new song’ in my heart today:
“Don’t Wait ‘til the battle’s over Shout Now!
‘Cause in the end - You’re gonna Win!”
Israel gained a Godly Perspective after this battle, witnessing God’s Faithfulness to deliver on His Promise. However, when the journey became hard and painful, they lost their Perspective and became very discouraged. This is why we get discouraged Warrior! We have lost our Godly Perspective! When our victory is ‘delayed in our eyes,’ our perspective must remain resolute! Our Treasure is where our heart is, and it’s worth the present discomfort of war (Matt.6:21)
Hanging On To Godly Perspective will cause you to endure hard and painful seasons; “cause in the end you’re going to win!”
Ask any godly Mother who has looked at her heartaches through the lense of a Godly Perspective; and seen her ‘godly household,’ by Faith just ahead...
Aaaah “.... we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.” (Heb.12:28)
Listen up Warrior! March on with your eye on the Prize of Victory just ahead, and your heart settled in Godly Perspective! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
