Divine Note #40 - You have been chosen to make an eternal difference - Hebrews 1:9

Divine Note #40 – October 7, 2009

This series of Divine Notes is written in honor of the ladies in my Sunday school class, Women of the Word.

Psalms 45:6–7
6 God, your throne will last forever and ever.
You will rule your kingdom with fairness.
7 You love right and hate evil,
so God has chosen you from among your friends;
he has set you apart with much joy.

Hebrews 1:9
9 You love right and hate evil,
so God has chosen you from among your friends;
he has set you apart with much joy." —

Col. 3:17
17 Everything you do or say should be done to obey
Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to
God the Father through Jesus.

Dear Friends,
These days I find myself tuned into everyone around me, so that God can use me to bring a word of encouragement, hope or comfort to those who may need it. Most of the time I am called to a ministry of presence and listening. So many people are hurting and need for you and me to step out to let them know that God cares and that He is with them. I don’t know about you, but I know that the purpose or mission of my life is to inspire, encourage and introduce the life-changing love of Jesus Christ to young adults and to those who are ill. Since I’ve elected to use the powerful spiritual gifts that God has given me to represent Him, my entire life has changed. I am making an eternal difference for God and my life is oh – so sweet!

As I grow in the knowledge of God by spending quality time with Him, getting to know Him and reading the Bible, I find myself wanting to be the best person that I can be. As I desire to please Him, He endows me with gifts I didn’t even know I had, so that I can serve those around me. I am usually blown away by the way He asks me to step out of my comfort zone. Sure, I resist, but ultimately I have to say, “OK Lord, if you think I can do it, I can do it.” I’m also learning how to say I’m sorry when I offend others – this is very hard for me. I love the way He knows my real nature, so I can be myself. He loves me regardless of how I feel.

Because I am in this deep relationship with Him, I want everyone to share what I have. It’s hard to keep Him for myself. I pray that you will feel the same way. Are you using your spiritual gifts to make an eternal difference? Do you know the purpose of your life? Why are you on Earth? Ask God these questions. He wants you to know.

Dear Savior of my Soul,I ask you to touch every person reading this message. May they decide to step out and serve you. May they think beyond themselves and realize that as Christians, we are called to serve and introduce the people around us to you. Thank you for asking me to do my part only since I am not in charge of saving anyone because that’s your job. I am only called to encourage, to listen and to love others and to share my gifts with them. I love you Father. I ask that you give all those reading this message an extra measure of belief so they can leave the comfort of the comfort zone to make an eternal difference for those who don’t know you. I ask this in the mighty name of precious Jesus Christ. Amen. Love you Lord!

Ask God to show you what it is that you need to be doing while you are living. Don’t waste your allotted time on Earth! Make a difference now.
Big God Hugs,

13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,

14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
