Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day, Hallelujah!
Word for the Day:
“Learning To Lean On God”
Text: Deuteronomy 1:8
“See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’”
“Learning To Lean On God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
I was fortunate to have the greatest model of Christ on the planet as my Daddy! I learned to lean on him early as a little boy. Everything I needed he provided, a bed to sleep in, food to eat, and a relentless love that wrapped me up whether I was good or bad…
After he died I realized He was the man he was because he had learned to Lean on Jesus!
Even Jesus as Son of Man Leaned upon His Father to do all things:
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.”(John 14:10)
In our text today, Moses is reminding Israel of God’s Relentless Love that has delivered them from Egypt’s slavery, led them through the wilderness, and provided everything for them; loving them in spite of their stubborn rebellion. After 40 years God is still trying to teach them to Learn To Lean Upon God. Now, Israel looks across the Jordan River and “Sees the Promised Land they had dreamed of,” and Moses reminds them of God’s Promise to Give them this Land IF They Will Lean On Him and Trust and Obey Him.
God’s been teaching you and I to Lean on Him also. We learned early to Lean on Him for His Grace and Mercy to forgive our sin and save our sin sick soul from God’s Wrath! Our Salvation experience was our first lesson on Learning to Lean On God. However, there have been many more “opportunities” to Learn to Lean on God. Every Prayer for help, every challenge we face, is an opportunity to Lean On Our Commander Jesus Christ. We too have a history of God’s Faithfulness in Loving us, Providing for us what we need, and Keeping you and I in His Hand. Oh yes we can all sing that chorus:
“Learning to Lean, Learning to Lean
I’m learning to lean on Jesus,
Finding more power than I’ve ever dreamed
I’m Learning to Lean on Jesus”
And then we will:
“Turn Our Eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace…”
It’s time for you and I to once again rehearse and remember God’s Faithfulness to Do What He Promised To Do in our Life! Oh how Great Is Thy Faithfulness:
“Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!”
Remember this Warrior! There are still “opportunities” up ahead for you and I to Lean on Our Commander Jesus Christ. As you rehearse and remember God’s Faithfulness to Do What He Says He Will Do - you Will Lean On Him Alone, Trust In Him Alone, and Triumph Over Every Opposition!
Joshua and Caleb learned to Lean on God and Triumphed Over Every Opposition All the Way to the end of their life!
As Warriors we’re all Learning to Lean On Jesus Completely! Ooooh Rah!
