4-48 Application for Nov 29-30, 2014 :: Psalm 118:13-14

===

I was pushed hard, so that I was falling, but the LORD helped me. The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

Psalm 118:13-14

===

This is the helpful truth for those that are falling. They’ve been pushed hard enough that they can’t keep standing on their own. And what does He do? What does He become for those who put their faith in Him?

Three things:

1. Your Strength – to enable you to keep from falling. This would be acceptable for many who are in a difficult place – but God doesn’t stop there.
2. Your Song – so you’re not just standing upright – you’re given the joy to want to sing about it.
3. Your Salvation – This is long term uprightness – eternal protection from falling.

Are you falling? Run to this God.

4-47 Application for Nov 22-23, 2014 :: John 15:7

===

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

John 15:7

===

“Awesome,” we think, “I can get anything I want by doing this one thing!”.

No. Rather, think of it this way – If you are a person who stays with Jesus, and follows Jesus, and knows his will and his words and wants to serve him, then you will be the kind of person who’s will is so close to God’s that what you wish will be His will.

And wouldn’t that be a much more substantial blessing than getting three wishes?

4-46 Application for Nov 15-16, 2014 :: Psalm 119:14-16

===

In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.

Psalm 119:14-16

===
Money is not as good as God. God is the source of all wisdom and joy and salvation.

So delight, fix your eyes, meditate and don’t forget

His …

precepts, ways, statutes, testimonies and word.

They are better, stronger and more valuable than riches.

4-45 Application for Nov 8-9, 2014 :: James 4:7-8

===

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.

James 4:7-8

===

Three Commands -
1. Submit yourself to God
2. Resist the devil
3. Draw near to God

Two Promises -
1. The devil will flee from you.
2. God will draw near to you.

Do you want the promises? Wouldn’t it be nice if the devil withdrew from you today? Do you want God to draw near to you?

So: What do you need to do to resist the devil? What do you have to shut off or run from. What do you need to say ‘no’ to?

And what do you need to do to submit to God and draw near to him. What do you need to say ‘Yes’ to?

Do those things. Pray for the grace to do those things.

4-44 Application for Nov 1-2, 2014 :: Psalm 127:1

===

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

Psalm 127:1

===

God can succeed without you, but you can’t succeed without God.

As you make goals, are you asking God to make them happen? Are you aware of his working through all of it? Are you thankful to him when things get done?

Are you open to the idea that everything that ever happens is miraculous?

4-43 Application for Oct 25-26, 2014 :: Psalm 55:22

===

Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.

Psalm 55:22
===

This is a promise. It doesn’t say – assuming your burden is of reasonable size. It doesn’t say – after you’ve given it a good try to carry the burden on your own.

It says – all you need to do is give your burden on God. He will protect you and give you peace. He will sustain you.

Do you have a burden. Pray. Give it to God. He is strong enough to make sure you aren’t moved.

4-42 Application for Oct 18-19, 2014 :: 1 Peter 3:18

===

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit

1 Peter 3:18

===
Before:
We were not able to go to God because we were unrighteous.

After:
We are being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit. We have been brought to God.

The Means
The righteous Christ’s suffering.

There was no other way.

===

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand,and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures

1 Corinthians 15:1-3

===

The Gospel -
It was preached to you: By others who love Christ
You received it: You did not earn it
You stand in it: It’s all you have
You are saved by it: This is your only way to God
It is of first importance: Know this above everything else

And what is the Gospel?
“That Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures”

4-40 Application for Oct 4-5, 2014 :: Romans 6:23

===

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23

===

Here is the gospel, as clear as can be. And like all gospel verse, it’s bad news/ good news.

We have earned death. That’s what we deserve. We should consider what it would mean for us if that were the end of the story.

Thank God for the next word, however: But …

But the free gift – that’s almost redundant, isn’t it. It’s as if Paul wanted to make a point. There is a gift – and it’s free. And what is it – what is this gift? It better be better than a toaster if it’s going to counter the very bad news at the beginning of the sentence.

It is. “Eternal Life”: a way of escape from death.

And what (or Who) is the means for this escape? Christ Jesus our Lord.

So it’s very bad news, the worst news we could imagine countered by the grace and mercy of the best news any being could receive.

Have you accepted this free gift?
