Toby Will – Wake Up Call to Christian Living

sunset-heart

There are just some times when a sermon resonates and shoots right to the heart! Today was one of those sermons for me–a call to WaKE Up and stay FoCUsEd on scripture rather than the circumstances surrounding. I have been struggling in the desert of my walk with God recently and just doing surface prayers and daily devotions, but not really SinKIng into the WORD and mEdiTAtiNG on it in a way that I can walk away completely fed and spiritually renewed.

Our guest pastor today, Toby Will, brought my heart and mind back to the core of Christian living–actively, passionately seeking a deeper, meaningful relationship with my Lord and Savior and being a light in a sea of darkness. Since it struck me so strongly today, I decided to post Toby’s message for anyone else who wants to have their FIrE ReGNitEd. One caveat…it is not a feel good, light-hearted message, but rather a convicting, God breathed message to draw you back to the fundamentals of your walk with the Lord.

May it bless you as richly as it has blessed me! All my love ❤

Confusion

Satan is always on the prowl, seeking to bring confusion and chaos into your life.  He wants nothing more than to cause division and destruction in the lives of God’s people.  And furthermore, he wants to separate you from the one source who can calm the turmoil in your life and set you on the correct path….God!  When you stop to listen to the whispering voice of God, you may find yourself amazed at what He can do!

Just this morning, I was reading the daily devotional on biblos.com and it was very clear that God is always with us, always guiding us with His loving hands. He is the lamp unto our path, the one who will instruct us in which way to go, even amidst the chaos and confusion that Satan tosses at us.  He will counsel us through His Word, inspire us with encouragement and wisdom from others He places in our lives.  He will direct our every step, if we let Him!

Psalm 25:12 Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.

Matthew 6:22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Isaiah 30:21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

Psalm 32:8-11 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. • Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you. • Many are the sorrows of the wicked, But he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him. • Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

Jeremiah 10:23 I know, O LORD, that a man’s way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.

Will you take the time to listen?  Will you surrender your ways and let God guide you, instruct you, light the way for your life?   I assure you it is not easy, and sometimes there is great pain and heartache involved, but God is true and faithful to bring mercy, grace, forgiveness, peace, comfort and joy.  It is an everyday battle to surrender your will and desires to Him, but the ultimate blessing is that your life will  be richer, clearer, and better because of it.  So seek Him today, read with Him, meditate on His words and let Him lead you out of  the confusion and chaos!

All my love!
