TRIED WITH FIRE

J ULY 9, 2017

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the
appearing of Jesus Christ 1 Peter 1:7.
The enemy may be bringing everything he has against you. Hurt after hurt. Calamity
after calamity. Distress after distress. Accusation after accusation. And while it feels
as though you are not going to make it, your faith will. Your faith will see you
through every single trial. You may feel the effects of the fire right now, and the
heaviness may be weighing on you, but God will make sure your faith will remain
intact. Your faith is indeed more precious than gold.

Just when you think youre done and cant take anymore, Jesus shows up in the fire.
He is a very present help in time of trouble. He will fight for you. When He said He
will never leave you nor forsake you, He meant it. When He said, He is your Shield
and your Defense, He meant it. When He said that no weapon formed against you
would prosper, He meant it. God hasnt abandoned you, and He has not left your side.
He is right there to help your faith remain.

Understand that every Word of God strengthens your faith, so dont close your Bible
now. Hide it in your heart and declare it from your mouth. Speak to your situation as
you stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!

Prayer: Father God, I cry out to You. You are my God and there is none else. Thank
You for being my impenetrable Shield. I place my total trust in You. Every test,
distress, and the fiery situation may be hard to bear, but You are with me to help me
come through it victoriously. Thank You that Your Word fights for me. I hide it in my
heart and declare it from my mouth. In Jesus name, Amen.

WHAT IT MEANS TO SEEK


J ULY 8, 2017

Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Isaiah
55:6, New Living Translation (NLT)
The Hebrew definition for the word seek is to tread or frequent; usually to follow
(for pursuit or search); by implication to seek or ask; specifically to worship. In the
English Dictionary, to seek is to attempt to find (something).

The reason there arent many seekers of the Lord is because we have the wrong
perspective of what it means to seek. Our seeking is more than an attempt to find
something. It is how we worship; it is a full persuasion that God is who He said He is,
and He will do everything He promised He will do.

The truth is, every Christian isnt seeking God. Just because you are praying doesnt
mean you are seeking God. To seek is to frequent Gods company and search His
Word for wisdom and direction until you receive what He has promised you. It is
constantly asking, OK Lord, I did step one. Now, what is step two? OK, Ive obeyed
You here. Now, what do You want me to do next? It is constantly checking in with
Him to navigate you to the victory Hes promised you.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your divine insight. I ask that you give me the
heart of a seeker. I dont know everything and I cant get to Your promises for my life
without You directing me and instructing my heart. Help me to get this message in my
heart and cause Your truth to produce visible results in my life. In Jesus name, Amen.

27:8)
