Victory Parade Ahead

31 Oct

God’s WordRevelation 3:1-22  (The Message)

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

Everyone wants to march in the victory parade but few do what it takes to achieve victory.  gods-invitationUp on your feet!  Take a deep breath! Examine the goals of your life!  Is busy work filling your days while the things that really matter are set aside?  And what is it that really matters?  Why did I give you life?  Just to have a good time and enjoy the ride of your life?  Not hardly!  Every human born on planet earth is made in My likeness and has purpose for living.  Finding your true purpose is intricately woven into My instructions for living—the Bible.  Ignore the Bible—never know your true purpose!

Discovering your purpose empowers you to reach for victory.  Without purpose life is meaningless and a constant striving for something more.  A purposeless life is like pulling the covers over your head, oblivious to My calling on your life.  But you can’t ignore Me forever.  I will break in on your life when you least expect it, like a thief in the night.  Every knee will bow when Jesus returns to earth to claim His own, those who have kept My Word in passionate patience. Those will I strengthen in the times of testing that will sweep over the earth.  Without purpose—you are without strength.

The purposeless ride the fence rather than standing up for the teachings in My Word.  Fence riders achieve nothing and go nowhere.  They cheer on those who have abandoned My teachings and support the spread of evil.  Step down off the fence and live up to the best I have planned for you.  About face!  Discover My purpose for your life before it is too late and you have lived a life of careless debauchery. My Word has your invitation to join My victory parade.   Jesus Christ leads the parade and invites you to be overcomers with Him.

God’s Question: Have you read My invitation lately?

God’s Promise:  Accept My invitation to victory now and forever.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for the coming victory parade.

I am Sorry I have failed sharing Your invitation with more.

Thank You for giving my life purpose and meaning.

Please Help Me always live to glorify You!
