Verse of the Day
The LORD continued to appear at Shiloh, and there he revealed himself to Samuel through his word. [NIV] 1 Samuel 3:21
Someone may have told you that in order for you to communicate with the Lord, you will need to hear His voice audibly. And to know it’s truly Him He needs to appear to you in person in order for you to believe. You don’t need God to appear to you in person for you to believe, you simply don’t, for indeed He can reveal himself through His written word, through His spoken word, through the Holy Spirit, through various means, He is the Lord and He will do what He pleases. However it’s not farfetched to believe that He can appear to you in person if He wishes to. Here, we are told that as young as Samuel was in the Lord, the Lord continued to appear to Him through His Word. And who is this word of the Lord that is being referred to? Jesus Christ! Even before Christ took on human flesh, He Was! You see, in the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) The Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. (John 1:14). So where I’m I going with this, Jesus can still reveal himself in person to you, it’s not bonkers to think so 🙂 and you’re not out of your mind, if you happen to see Him. However, if you among those who haven’t seen his person, it still doesn’t mean He’s not who He is, and that He loves you any less! #He is God, He is Sovereign, He is Who He is, creator of heaven and earth! #VerseoftheDay #SamuelChallenge
Verse of the Day
Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. [NLT] Joshua 21:45
God promised Abraham to give his descendants (the family of Israel) the land of Canaan as their possession (Genesis 17:8), and not only did they possess it, they are still dwelling there till this day – in spite of every challenge that came their way. Every promise, every single one of them, as innumerable as they all were His promises to His friend Abraham, to Abraham’s descendants, every single one of them all came to pass. Now check this, What Promises has Jehovah given to you, and because it’s been a few days/months/years since you’ve had them, you’re now in quandary, wondering if they will ever happen? Yesterday we learnt that Jesus #Christ will be to His people what their faith needs and what the circumstance requires. Do you need Him to give you peace while He’s preparing a way to make His promises happen? Ask Him for it. Come-what-may, regardless of how fiercest the storm you’re facing maybe, one thing is certain. God’s promises to you will NEVER EVER GO UNFULFILED. You can bet your life of Him. His promises will surely come to pass in your life, now that I’m certain of! #JoshuaChallenge #Verseoftheday
He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. [NLT] Colossians 1:17
When our Lord Jesus Christ came in his human nature, He became the visible discovery of our #invisible God, and a representative of our Father – even though in His invisible form He existed before time began and forever; and that is why we also call Him Ancient of days. All things were created by Him, for him and by his power; they were made according to his pleasure, and for His praise and glory. He not only created them all, but by the WORD of HIS POWER all the things He made were upheld. Now, can you now imagine having Him as your foundation? An ageless, immovable, powerful, faithful, trustworthy God, who came into this world in a visible form, just so that you knew how much He loved you, and how much He was willing to sacrifice His life for you, just so that you can have a wonderful relationship of trust and fellowship with Him? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind banking and building my life on Him as my Rock and my solid foundation!
