Vital Factor in Your Future

Paul helped the Christians in Rome to wake up to a matter that would be a vital factor in their future: …”The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart”… (Rom.10:8, NKJV). Some of us came through an era of religious training and teaching that left us with the understanding that the vital factors of our lives and our future would be the result of what someone else said to us. Some have grown up in dysfunctional families and some have come out of bad marriages thinking that they do not deserve anything more or different than the negative that was said about them. But the helpful instruction of Paul is that the word our ears (and the atmosphere and the environment) need to hear is the word that comes out of our own mouth. But that word must be influenced, must be shaped by THE Word of God:  “…that is, the Word of Faith which we proclaim;”  (v.8b). What was to come out of the Romans’ mouths was to have been influenced by the instruction of the Word from godly leaders and teachers.

Where is a Hero When You Need One?

We hear stories and testimonies and we long for those extraordinary, even miraculous things to happen for us. When I was child and frightened, I longed for a fearless, strong, undefeated hero to rush in and come to my rescue. Do you find yourself asking, “Where is a hero when you need one?” Perhaps a little different tack on this subject would be more help than regretfully wishing. (Rom.10:8, Msg) “So what exactly was Moses saying? The word that saves is right here, as near as the tongue in your mouth, as close as the heart in your chest. It’s the word of faith that welcomes God to go to work and set things right for us. This is the core of our preaching.” We can choose to either wish and complain or we can search out, learn and memorize scriptural ammunition to use in the fight. (Isa.49:2, CEV) “He made my words pierce like a sharp sword or a pointed arrow; he kept me safely hidden in the palm of his hand.”  (Rev.1:16, KJV) “And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword…”.  (Excerpt five from Marty’s article “Deflecting Attacks and Seeing the Intervener”.)

Getting To God-Ordained Appointments

 

TalkingPointing

 

We have appointments to get to in 2015. If we listen to what seems to be apparent and logical and reasonable and live according to those things, it is possible that we will not get to God-ordained appointments. Trying to live by what others say can result in the sad report of Acts 27:20 “all hope was taken away”—that is the point at which people give up and stop trying. For the coming days of our lives we best listen and take Paul’s example and Paul’s instruction who said “I believe God” (Acts 27:25) and “…The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart”… (Rom.10:8, NKJV). Let’s stop trying to live by things said BY OTHERS and start living by things said BY US. (Cf. Prov.15:30; 18:21)

The Word In Your Mouth

The Things Said By Us

talk listen

We seem to end up living by the things said
TO US when we could be living by all the
things said BY US.

“But what does it say? ‘The word is near you,
in your mouth and in your heart’ (that is,
the word of faith which we preach):
(Rom.10:8, NKJV)
