Waiting on the Lord – Isaiah 40:31
Isaiah 40: 31 “Yet those who wait on Jehovah will renew their strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles; They will run and will not faint; They will walk and will not become weary.”
Today the Lord desires for us to stop our own doing and trying without the Lord, and wait on Him by taking Christ as our everything. This will allow us to experience Christ in His resurrection and be able to soar above our daily frustrations. We should receive God in Christ as our life and everything, He’s so wonderful.
The Closer One Is to Christ, The Greater One Is – Matthew 11:11
Truly I say to you, Among those born of a women there has not arisen one greater than John the Baptist, yet he who is least in the kingdom of the heavens is greater than he.” ~Matthew 11:11
John the Baptist was greater than the prophets because he saw Christ. How can the least in the kingdom of the heavens be greater than John? Because the believers, those in the kingdom of the heavens, have the resurrected Christ within them. The closer one is to Christ, the greater one is.
Living Christ Through Loving Him – Phil 1:21
Phil 1:21 – “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
How could Paul say that he lived Christ? He could because he was one who really loved Christ and spent much time with Him. Through His loving Christ in his daily life, all that Christ is in His person was then lived out of Paul.
Eating Christ – John 6
Many places in the Bible refer to our need to eat Christ. We can eat Christ by eating his word as seen in John 6. Here, Jesus likens himself to the manna that the children of Israel ate in the wilderness. This signifies that we need to enjoy the Lord every day as our life supply.
