What Is Your Next Challenge?

As he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 1:20

Are you coasting in life right now? If so, the ride may be fun for a while, but remember that your direction is down, not up. The momentum in a Christian’s life should always lead us to the next challenge or assignment God has for us. And then when our assignment here on earth is finished, we can look forward to an eternity of being in God’s presence.

Listen to what God has next for you. Rarely is it a downhill ride.


Let Go and Let God!

Memorial of Saint Bonaventure, Year I

Matthew 10:24-33

24
No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master.
25
It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, for the slave that he become like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul,* how much more those of his household!

Courage Under Persecution.
26
“Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.*
27
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.
28
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.
29
Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge.
30
Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
31
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
32
* Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
33
But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.

Friends, Jesus instructs his disciples in today's Gospel, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both body and soul in Gehenna."

What is the greatest fear we have? Undoubtedly, the fear of losing our own lives; we fear the death of the body. But Jesus is telling us not to worry about those paper tigers that can only affect the body and its goods.

When I am in love with God, when I am "fearing" him above all things, I am rooted in a power that transcends space and time, a power that governs the universe in its entirety, a power that is greater than life and death.

Let Go and Let God!

Divine Fruit
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23

Fruit is made to be eaten so that it will nourish us. The fruit of God’s Holy Spirit is to have a similar effect. We partake of the Holy Spirit as believers in Christ, and the divine fruit comes naturally to us—well, supernaturally to us.

As we display this fruit, we become witnesses to good. We become witnesses to God. Each and every day, we can allow God’s Holy Spirit to reproduce his life in us. But it’s crucial to realize that apart from him, we can produce nothing good.

Live the good life by living the God life.

National holidays come and go, but sometimes we, as Americans, forget why we celebrate them.

Let me ask you, for example, if you know the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day? The first is to honor the men and women who died in defense of our country. The second holiday is devoted to today's veterans. It is intended to express appreciation and respect for those who are still alive and have served faithfully in the nation's Armed Forces. We owe both the living and the dead a debt of gratitude we can never repay.

On this Memorial Day, please set aside some time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in all the nation's wars and conflicts occurring from the Revolutionary War under George Washington's leadership, to the most recent fatalities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of these fallen warriors have willingly faced death so that the rest of us can enjoy safety, security, and prosperity at home. It is not enough that we devote this Memorial Day to barbecuing hamburgers or playing rounds of golf or getting together with friends and family. We must not forget the significance of this occasion on behalf of those who have defended our liberties with their blood.

It is also our obligation to teach our children the meaning of the sacrifices being made by their grandparents, their parents, and their heroic ancestors long dead. Those who are deployed far from home must help their sons and daughters understand why we honor the ones they love. Our educators should also play an important role in teaching patriotism and national pride to the next generation of Americans.

Before eating our family dinner on Memorial Day, perhaps we should hold hands and sing these immortal words together: "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing: land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrims' pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring...Long may our land be bright with freedom's holy light; protect us by thy might, great God, our King."

–James Dobson, Ph.D.

Dining at the King’s Table

Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the king’s food, or with the wine that he drank. Therefore he asked the chief of the eunuchs to allow him not to defile himself.
Daniel 1:8

Just as Daniel and his three friends were given food from the king’s table—obviously very good food—so too are we given food from the table of this present world. Yes, it looks attractive. It tastes good too. Why then should we not partake?

We’re told that Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were “without blemish” (Daniel 1:4). But the reason Daniel gave for not eating food from the king’s table was that it would defile him. This attractive meal would do great harm to these men, and they were wise enough to abstain from what God had prohibited.

Each of us is in some way tempted to dine from the king of this world’s table. The fare looks delicious and will be pleasing to the taste...but to eat that which God has forbidden is to partake of poison.

What is it in your life that is being offered as food from the king’s table? Have you already partaken and experienced its sad effects? If so, resolve now to push back your chair from the king’s table and stay on God’s side.

Let Go and Let God!

Jesus, the Revelation of the Father

"If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him." (John 14:7)

Jesus came to be one of us, to live among us, to teach us who God, our Father, is.
He speaks the words of the Father, a message of friendship and love, of care and compassion, of healing and mercy. He performs the works of the Father, acts of touching cures and physical restoration, acts of providing and feeding. He sought out the poor and needy, the sinner and the desperate, the lost and searching, those who have no one but God to care for them. In his death on the cross Jesus reveals God to be One who suffers with and for us, to be perfectly and infinite forgiving Love. He constantly says to each of us what he said to Jesus, his Son, "You are my beloved." In John's Gospel at the last supper Jesus promises that when it is our time, he will come back and take us with him to our Father's house.
There we will all proclaim, "Alleluia!"


Let Go and Let God!

Seeing God as He Really Is
I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple…“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
Isaiah 6:1, 5 (niv)

Seeing God as he really is causes us, like Isaiah the prophet, to be “ruined.” We feel unclean amidst an unclean people. How can a holy God desire to have a relationship with men and women such as us?

Yet the story of the Bible is just that. A holy God, high and exalted, seated on a throne with the train of his robe filling the temple, wants us as his very own. That this is the case seems impossible, but it is true. At such a revelation, we can only erupt in praise to our heavenly King.

Winning Against Giants
The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.
1 Samuel 17:37

What are your giants? Name them, one by one. Then remember that the God who empowered David to strike down his giant is the same God who will be with you as you contend with the seemingly insurmountable giant stalking you.

Here is a time to remember how God has intervened in the past and to look forward to what he will do in your present situation. It’s time to have faith in the God who causes his chosen ones to win against giants, even with the weakest of tools. No, it wasn’t the slingshot that slayed the giant. It was the God of David who gave the victory. He is your God too.


Let Go and Let God!

Moving into God’s Calling
Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.
Joshua 1:5-7

Each of us has the promise of God’s presence as we, by faith, claim the “land” that is ours. Yes, we each have a calling and a place in the work of God. As we move into that sacred place—that promised land—we can know that no matter what adversity comes against us, no man (or messenger from Satan) will be able to stand before us.

As God was with Moses, so he promised to be with Joshua—and through faith, with us also. He will never leave us nor forsake us. This is his promise—and it’s by this promise that we’re able to dwell successfully in our calling.


Let Go and Let God!

See God’s Deliverance
And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Exodus 14:13-14

When backed into a corner, our first reaction is to fight. We look for our earthly weapons and prepare to make our way out of the dead-end situation we’re in. But what did God tell the children of Israel? Did he say to be fearful? Did he give a call to action on their part? Did he tell them to take up their swords for battle?

There were times later on when God would indeed equip them for battle, but not here. Instead, now was a time when they were to reject fear, stand firm, and then see with their own eyes the deliverance of the Lord.

God often allows us to fall into perilous situations to invite us to see with our own eyes his power to deliver us. What a difference it would make if we could face every impending dark situation by standing still, totally unafraid, and watching the Lord bring deliverance on our behalf.
