The Journey with Ron Moore

How about you? What are you learning about God and yourself on this journey? Are you thinking great thoughts of God? Is your energy to follow hard after Him increasing? Are you becoming bolder in telling others about Him? Are you finding contentment in Him alone? Packer’s words describe Joseph. Do they describe you?

Woven into the story of God’s sovereign work that saved and secured the nation of Israel, we see the overwhelming emotions of two brothers being reunited. God’s Word is simply amazing.

God’s ways are not our ways, and His schedule is seldom synced with the calendar on our smart phones. But you can be sure of this: God never wastes our time. He is using today to prepare you for tomorrow. He has some great things for you to do. And He will show you what they are . . . in His time.

Don’t run from him; run to him! God promises that if we confess our sins, he “is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). It’s time to come out of the darkness into the wonderful light of God’s grace.

Those on the journey of faith have a different mindset. We are willing to invest in eternal things. We must be willing to plant trees so that those who come after us can enjoy the shade . . . and plant trees of their own.

If you are spiritually hungry . . . if your world feels like it is coming apart . . . if you are running on empty . . . if your foundation is quaking underneath your feet . . . then call on El Shaddai. He will meet your deepest need . . . not only for today but for all eternity.

Through the work of Jesus, believers have an eternal inheritance that will “never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4). Our rebirth comes with powerful privileges.

No one or no thing can stand between you and God. God will not put you through the same test he required of Abraham, but he wants your total allegiance just the same. Put him first and he will provide everything you need. Remember, his name is Jehovah-Jireh.

How about you? Where are your tents pitched? What are you willing to concede for your “flocks to thrive”? Many are willing to compromise their reputation, marriage and family for the sake of power and possessions.

I don’t know what your situation is today. Maybe like Abram, you are beginning to feel that God has forgotten you and his promise. You have fallen into that “can’t happen” mindset. Let me remind you that his name is still God Almighty!
