Throughout the Living Word of God the Lord speaks to us through the Holy Spirit in order to warn us and to help prepare us for what is ahead. The Lord has given us His Word which still stands today in order to receive the blessings of God but when the people disobey God without recognition of our generational sins and continue to drift away from God’s Word then we better prepare for the inevitable.
In the lesson of Acts 27 with Paul in the ship during a storm there is much more to this than just a story of Paul’s life when you open your eyes in the Spirit of God. Look at his faith and how nothing would stop him from going forward. Look at how the men of the ship began to listen to him when their lives were in danger. If you recall in the first verses of Acts 27 the officers would not listen to Paul because they were stuck in this world and they only followed the captain which they could physically see because they did not know how to stand on their own and properly believe. But once the trouble came then whom did they seek for advice? Can you see this relation to America today? Where is America looking at the present time? Are we looking for physical or spiritual answer’s?
Why is it we by nature won’t listen until it is almost too late? It is sad at how shallow we are in the flesh but amazing at how the depth’s never stop in the Spirit of God! We must remember whom was cast down to earth and the Creator in Heaven above. For if we can’t see beyond our world and become stuck in our way’s without listening to the Holy Spirit of God in our hearts then our vision is being restricted by the evil one whom travels this earth in never wanting us to see our way home.
Vision in faith is not limited but only by our human restraints. For in the vision of God we always receive what we need as we seek Him daily within our walk of human life. He will show us goals to reach but we must do the work to get there and allow Him to bring our goals together in His timing and not ours. In the flesh of man we all want something now, like Eve in the Garden of Eden and America today. But we must learn in the lesson’s of life from our ancestor’s in the Holy Bible to our present day issue’s to recognize our human weakness in the flesh to build our individual character on the foundation of God and not on our personal desires!
There will be storm’s in our path with major rock’s up ahead if we don’t listen to the Word of God and follow His instruction in giving us the direction back to the kingdom. The Lord gives us the beginning and the end from Genesis to Revelation with the instruction in the middle but we must do the work in between this time period to help other’s along the Way! Our life begins with Genesis and ends in Revelation and as a book our life story is told in the middle. Looking at your life how will you be remembered from your physical birth to your physical death because this has a major impact on your eternal future.…In Jesus name we all can live!!! Amen
