2 Samuel 23:2 Are You Speaking His Words?

The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; his word was on my tongue. 2 Samuel 23:2

Regardless of where one is there is always someone around who has something to say. They may talk about their day, their job, their children/grandchildren, their family, the things they are purchasing, politics or nearly anything else, but they will talk.

Some people like to quote what others have said or talked about. They will quote movies, books or speeches that they know about.

Either way they talk, they have something to say, some of value, some of little value and some even harmful.

David says that God’s Spirit spoke through him and gave him the words to say.

Talking about one’s day, the weather or even politics can have its place, but all of these things are just temporary. None of these things has a real place in eternity. New believers will often wonder what they are to talk about, especially when talking with someone still in the world as an unbeliever.

God knows what every person needs to hear at any given moment. He is willing to share what they need to hear by giving that information through His Holy Spirit. Just as God gave the prophets a word for the people in the Bible, He will give the believer a word for those around him.

The believer who is filled with the Holy Spirit and is listening will hear what God wants him to say. Along with that the believer must be reading, studying and memorizing Scriptures on a regular basis. This will allow for the Holy Spirit to bring back to remembrance what he has already been told giving him God word to speak into the lives of others.

God’s word can be on every believer’s lips. It is alive and able to change hearts and lives of people in all walks of life.

As a believer, God is ready and willing to share what He has to say to others through you. Open your heart and mind up to hearing what the Spirit is saying and then be bold and speak up at His leading.

Do not allow yourself to speak the words of the world that will only leading to disappointments and death in the end. Speak God’s word that will bring about hope and eternal life. Let God speak through you.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will hear what the Holy Spirit has to say; that you will speak the words of God; that others will hear you speak the words of God; and that lives will be changed and drawn to God with what you say.

1 Samuel 10:6 A Different Person

The Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person. 1 Samuel 10:6

Most people have had at least one person in their life that had a major effect upon their life. This person guided them in a way in which their life was changed, and they became a different person. Some are changed for the better, while some are changed for the worse.

When these changes occur, the person becomes a different person than what he was, whether for the good or for the bad.

Samuel told Saul that the Spirit of the Lord would come upon him, and he would be changed into a different person.

There are many people who have prayed the sinner’s prayer and claimed to believe in Jesus, but have not allowed God’s Holy Spirit to come upon them and change them. Instead of being changed, they continue in their same actions, attitudes and mindset. Rather than being led by God’s Holy Spirit, they are led by their own selfish ways and the ways of the world.

The moment God comes upon a person, he will be changed. He will move from the darkness to light, from death to life. The work of God will make him come alive and be changed into a different person.

No longer will he be led by the sinful ways of the world and his own selfish desires, but by the Holy Spirit. Sin will no longer have the strong pull upon his life, but the chains of death will be broken. Desire to serve God and live for God according to His ways will become his focus and the world will see the difference.

Have you repented of your sins and accepted Jesus into your life as Lord and Savior? Have you changed into a new person or are you still the same as what you were?

Allow God’s Holy Spirit to come upon you and change you from the inside out. He will open your eyes to what needs to change and give you the strength and boldness to make those changes.

As a believer you are to be holy, set apart, different from the world. You are now a new creation in Christ Jesus, created to do good works of service unto God.

You are to be different from what you once were.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will allow God’s Holy Spirit to rest upon your life; that you will allow the Holy Spirit to guide and change you; that you will be a new person in Christ Jesus; and that you will be holy unto God in all that you think, say and do.

The Fields Of Clon Miarth (book review)

This is the third book in the series Samuel Schiller wrote around the life of Evan MacKeth. In the previous book Evan had been a part of a major battle against the priests of Moloch and was seriously injured, but did survive.

In the opening of this book Evan is laying in a bed injured both in spirit and in body. He feels as though God does not care about him any longer and wishes that his life would end. He has no idea where Aine Ceallaigh (whom he has grown to love) is. Julian (the Holy Spirit in the form of a bird) urges him to get up and move forward.

Evan begins his journey to find Aine, but is led by God to go a different direction, though he does not know or understand why, but knows he must follow God’s leading. Julian goes a different direction, leaving Evan on his own.

Aine had been captured by another man who loves her, but does not believe in, nor serve God. Although he is rough at times and is on the enemy’s side, he protects her.

Throughout the entire book there is a lot of battles against the goblin army described in great detail. It goes between battles that Evan is in, Aine is in and other important characters. The goblin army is much greater than the human army. Many die or are wounded on both sides.

Throughout this story one can see that there is to be a reliance upon God’s leading through His Holy Spirit. Often the characters are placed in nearly impossible situations and miracles occur.

Without giving away too much of the story, there is enough fighting going on in this story that if it were made into a movie, it would most likely be a rated R movie. I will not give away how the battle ends in the end as to which side won or lost.

If you love to read high level action and battle stories, this book will be an excellent read. I also recommend it for any believer to be encouraged to do battle against the spiritual forces at work in our lives and the world. God is the God of the impossible and it shows up very well in this story. This story is also continued in more books to follow.
