Today Reminder - 25 October 2013 (Day 19 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
He did what was pleasing in the LORD's sight, just as his father, Amaziah, had done. Uzziah sought God during the days of Zechariah, who taught him to fear God. And as long as the king sought guidance from the LORD, God gave him success. (2 Chronicles 26:4-5)

How are you today my dear friend? Are the storms raging on and the winds of challenges blowing through your life? This week we saw that the Lord will win our battles for us and that we need to have faith for with the Lord we will destroy lions. We need to pray for those around us so that their eyes are opened and we must remember that there is a purpose in everything that happens, we need to listen to God and follow His voice.

Today I want to add on to that with this amazing verse from Chronicles 26 - And as long as the king sought guidance from the LORD, God gave him success.

This is such a powerful verse and something that we can take with us through the weekend. Uzziah sought God and learned to fear God. I have written to you before that we must right-size God. God is not one of our friends, He is the creator of heaven and earth. He speaks and worlds are formed. This is the God that we worship and as long as we seek His guidance God will give us success. Now this is something we need to think about for a minute, because how many times do we seek our own guidance and allow people and circumstances to dictate our decisions when God so clearly says that He will give us success when we seek His guidance.

This is something that we must take seriously and we need to focus on the fact that we must seek God and seek His guidance. Many went to King Solomon for his wisdom, yet his wisdom came from God. So let us not seek wisdom from the world, but let us take God’s Word and seek our guidance from the creator of wisdom.

I look forward to talk to you again on Monday and I pray that the Lord will guide you through this weekend and carry you in His hands and that He will give you wisdom to make the right choices as you live to bring glory to His name. I pray that the Lord will bless you with rest and that He will renew your strength and prepare you for the week ahead. 

Thank you for living in His kingdom and fighting the battle with me. There is victory and success in each moment and we can change the world with every little victory.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
