Bible in 365 Days – Day 74

DAY 74.png

Focus Chapters:

  • Deuteronomy 10-12

 

Standout Verse(s):

Deuteronomy 10:4 NLT

Once again the Lord wrote the Ten Commandments on the tablets and gave them to me. They were the same words the Lord had spoken to you from the heart of the fire on the day you were assembled at the foot of the mountain.

 

Observation (s):

  1. God wrote the same Ten Commandments on the tablet that He had initially spoken to the people.

    Once again the Lord wrote the Ten Commandments on the tablets and gave them to me. They were the same words the Lord had spoken to you from the heart of the fire on the day you were assembled at the foot of the mountain.

     

Application:

God is not like man. He is not plagued with memory issues. He is very consistent when it comes to His commands. God’s commands do not change. He issued the exact same commands to the Israelites on three separate occasions:

  1. He verbally issued the commands at the foot of the mountain.
  2. He wrote on the tablets on Moses’ first trip up the mountain.
  3. He wrote on the tablets on Moses’ second trip up the mountain.

It can only be expected that when God tells you to do or not do something, His commands won’t change, even if you wait a year or 100 years. Men’s words change but God’s doesn’t.

Emotionally-Unavailable is NOT AVAILABLE

image

An encounter with a friend this weekend raised something in my mind. I am confused! Why do females always try to change a male’s mind? This is something that seems to be in females’ make-up, we always believe that we can change a man’s mind! The fact is, this doesn’t always work out so well for us and we are left holding a crap hand of cards.

“If a man tell you that he is not ready for a relationship; believe him the first time.” – Steve Harvey.

Life is too short to waste time trying to change a man’s mind. It is my firm belief that a man shouldn’t need help knowing if he wants you or not. If he tells you that he isn’t ready for a relationship, believe him, no matter his reasoning. I’ve seen cases where the man is still hanged-up over his ex. Do you know what that makes him? It makes him emotionally-unavailable! While I applaud you females for thinking you can make him emotionally-available or change his mind, aren’t you forgetting your value and all your self-worth that you will probably have to sacrifice if you fail?

The TEST will end after you PASS.

image

I found myself thinking about God’s tests for us yesterday. The Lord reminded me that in the same way that trials come to make us stronger, tests come to hone us. The key thing about tests is that once you are given it, you have to pass it in order for you to move on to the next level. The thing that happens to most of us is that as Christians, we all want to get to the next level but few of us want to experience the tests that the Lord use to get us there.

I am writing to tell you tonight, if you want the fruits of the Spirit, you have to pass your test. If you want the spiritual gifts, you have to pass the test. If you want to get more blessings, you have to pass the test. If you want to go to new spiritual heights, you must pass the test. The Lord’s tests are just like SAT or CSEC, there is no if, nor but, nor maybe, you have to pass the test in order to move up. In fact, if you fail, you will continue to resit that exam until you do pass.

Change your strategy.

image

In the same way that we have tests to pass, the devil has assigned himself tests. He has tasked himself with seeing how many of us he can get condemned to damnation. Now unlike some of us, he is a very very dedicated pupil. He researches and studies his subjects very well. He endeavors to become an expert on each one of us.

A few years ago, the Lord gave me a resounding message, “CHANGE YOUR STRATEGY!”. A few months ago, He showed me that this could not only be applied to my tests but my temptations/trials as well. He directed me to the Israelites’ exodus to the Promised Land. He showed me that He did not allow them to use the same strategy when faced with different kinds of enemies.

When you encounter God…

image

A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a friend about the way youngsters who are Christians behave. She was lamenting the fact that they don’t really behave like Christians. The only thing that came to mind to tell her is that it’s because they haven’t encountered God for themselves yet. A few nights later as I knelt at my bedside praying, that same thought came to me: things will not change until you make it your duty to encounter God.

Will you change your barrel?

I used to wonder why great wine was so expensive. What went into the wine-making process that resulted in $10,000.00 bottles of great-tasting wine.

I had the pleasure of going on the Appleton Estate tour a few months ago. This trip really put things into perspective. I realized it wasn’t just the process of making the wine, that made it worthy of its cost but also the process of aging the wine and the measures that were put in place. These meaures included never reusing an old barrel for new wine.

Thinking about the process brought something Jesus had said into perspective for me. I had never fully grasped why it was integral when Jesus made the declaration of not pouring new wine into old barrels. I now understand! You will never get great costly wine if you reuse a barrel! Why? The barrel would have become compromised after going through the first aging process of the old wine.
