word for today


Aah…the consultation. Many of us have had them over the years for various reasons. We leave the family physician’s office to consult with an auditory specialist when we have difficulty hearing. After an unsettled dispute, we consult with an attorney. The list continues on. There is no use, however, consulting with anyone other than God when He calls you to do something. The temptation is to put Him on hold to discuss it with someone else or to wait until your timing is right or until your circumstances are better before you agree to it. When the call of God comes, you’ll know it. No consultation is needed unless you’re seeking one with Him. Don’t let the devil, who is at center of all your distractions, drag you away from the greatest opportunity you’ll ever know. (But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him. 1 John 2:27; Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4-5)
