Far and Wide

Click here to listen to blog

But the LORD says, "Now I will do something and be greatly praised.  Your deeds are straw that will be set on fire by your very own breath.  You will be burned to ashes like thorns in a fire.  Everyone, both far and near, come look at what I have done. See my mighty power!"  Those terrible sinners on Mount Zion tremble as they ask in fear, "How can we possibly live where a raging fire never stops burning?"  But there will be rewards for those who live right and tell the truth, for those who refuse to take money by force or accept bribes, for all who hate murder and violent crimes.  They will live in a fortress high on a rocky cliff, where they will have food and plenty of water.  With your own eyes you will see the glorious King; you will see his kingdom reaching far and wide.

Isaiah 33 : 10-17

Christian discouragement is one of Satan's best weapons.  The devil wants to kill your courage and keep you from being a bold believer!  If you are convinced that God will not do many things today, you can easily settle in to an attitude of despair.  Why ask God to do anything if you don't believe He will?

Instead of making a list of the things that God will not do today, spend your time and energy looking for the things that He is doing!  Today God is rewarding those who live right and tell the truth.  God is displaying His mighty power before the eyes of all those who are looking to see it!  

The most amazing thing happening in all the world today is the spread of the Kingdom of God "reaching far and wide!"  Even those who are enemies of Christ are seeing Him and yielding to His love as they become Christ followers!  A fire is burning around the world like never seen before! 

"Lord Jesus, thank You for letting us see Your Mighty Power as Your Kingdom spreads to the far corners of the earth.  May Your Holy and Precious Name be praised now and forever.  Amen."
