YOUR RED SEA - "Go forward fearlessly. Do not think about the Red Sea that lies ahead. Be very sure that when you come to it the waters will part and you will pass over to your promised land of freedom." TGIF! Enjoy your freedom this weekend friends - may Christ go with you.
Romans 7:5,6: "For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter." 'In the flesh' refers to the period before the believer's conversion. In this context, those 'in the flesh' are not born again, and those in the Spirit are regenerated or born again. The law aroused sinful desires that were expressed through the members of the body and resulted in death. At conversion, believers died to the law with the result that we are now able to serve in newness of life. We have a new life in the Holy Spirit, not in the old way of the letter, the old way of trying to gain life by means of the law.
DEAR NAME - "Jesus. Say My Name often. It was in My Name Peter bade the lame man walk. 'In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth arise and walk.' 'Jesus'. The very sounding of My Name, in Love and tenderness, drives away all evil. It is the word before which all the hosts of evil flee. 'Jesus.' My name is the call for a lifetime to rescue you from temptation. 'Jesus.' the Name banishes loneliness - dispels gloom. 'Jesus.' Summons help to conquer your faults. I will set you on high because you have known My Name. Yes! My Name - 'Jesus.' Use it more. Use it tenderly. Use it prayerfully. Use it powerfully."
WAIT - "The world has always seen service for Me to be activity. Only those near to Me have seen that a life apart, of prayer, may, and does so often, accomplish more than all the service man can offer Me. If man lived apart with Me and only went out to serve at My direct command, My Spirit could operate more and accomplish truly mighty things."
GOD-INSPIRED: "You have entered now upon a mountain climb. Steep steps lead upward, but your power to help others will be truly marvelous. Not alone will you arise. All towards whom you now send loving, pitying thoughts will be helped upward by you. Looking to Me all your thoughts are God-inspired. Act on them and you will be led on. They are not your own impulses but the movement of My Spirit, and obeyed, will bring the answer to your prayers. Love and Trust. Let no unkind thoughts of any dwell in your hearts, then I can act with all My Spirit-power, with nothing to hinder."
