1 Chronicles 16:23 Daily Proclamation

Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. 1 Chronicles 16:23

Businesses always focus on getting the message out every day about their products or services that they provide. Marketeers know that they must promote their products daily or else people will stop purchasing them very quickly.

In the process of telling about their products, they will use many different methods, television ads, internet ads, word of mouth, billboards, flyers, mailers and more to get their information out. The focus is to reach as many people as possible to sell as much as possible.

After setting up the ark of the covenant David gave some praise to God. He told the people to sing to the Lord and proclaim His salvation every day.

With everything the world has and is proclaiming, they are missing the greatest news and best product the world could ever possibly have. As the world is promoting their goods loudly every day as the best thing ever and that everyone needs what they have, all that they have is temporary joy and, in the end, eternal death.

At the same time believers have something greater to promote and proclaim. This message that they have is the salvation that Jesus paid for and provides for each and every person. Forgiveness of sin and being given eternal life is the greatest thing that the world has ever seen, yet many do not know about it.

Believers need to be willing to speak up and proclaim the salvation of God to everyone they meet as often as they can on a daily basis. Doing this does not take a college degree or any expertise. It is just telling others what God has done for oneself and can do for others. This is proclaiming His salvation.

You may have some product that you really love and are willing to tell others about it every day. But as a believer, you have something even greater to proclaim to anyone who is willing to listen. That message is that Jesus provides forgiveness and salvation that gives eternal life.

Do not hold on to the greatest message to yourself that the world will ever hear. Give everyone you meet a chance to know Jesus and gain eternal life. Pass it on. Proclaim the gospel message to all you meet on a daily basis so that all may be saved.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will sing praises to God every day; that God will make you bold in proclaiming the gospel message; that you will not be ashamed to tell others about Jesus; and that God will draw many to Him through your proclamation.

Deuteronomy 4:9 Don’t Forget

Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Deuteronomy 4:9

All around the nation and the world there are memorials placed to help people remember certain events or people. This is often done to remember something very good to keep it going or something bad to prevent it from occurring again.

Some people will hold on to those memories, while others will ignore and forget them.

Moses told the people to be careful to remember the things that they had seen and to teach those things to their children and grandchildren.

While traveling through the desert wilderness, the Israelites had seen many different miracles of God in their lives. God had revealed Himself to them in provision of food, water, clothing and protection from enemies.

Any believer who trusts in God and follows Him will be able to look at his life and see God’s hand at work in it. He will be able to see God work miracles of provision, protection, healing and more.

Often people forget what has happened or ignore God’s hand in what occurred. Forgetting these things will cause one to fear when a new trouble arises. Instead of trusting God, one will begin to complain against God or turn to other false gods. It will give the enemy a foothold in one’s life, pulling him away from God.

Every believer needs to remember what God has done in his life and tell others about it. This will strengthen one’s own trust in God and build up trust in God in others. Nothing is greater than the testimony of the one who actually experienced the incident.

Take a moment to stop and think about all the things God has done in your life. Some of those things may be great miracles, while others are just quiet provisions behind the scenes. Make a list to see how many things God has already done. Now remember those things when a new trial comes up.

Do not allow yourself to get discouraged or to cower in fear forgetting what God has done and can do. Trust God. Then go and tell others what God has already done, so that others may also learn to trust in God.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know what God has done for you; that you will remember the work of God in your life; that you will trust God with your whole life; and that you will tell others of what God has done in your life.

Acts 18:9 Don’t Be Silent

One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.” Acts 18:9

There are times when someone has something to say that is contrary to the common popular belief. Often the person does not say anything because it goes against what others are saying. They fear the rejection and whiplash of speaking out something different.

Some people are willing to speak no matter what others think or feel. In their minds there is no fear of what others are saying or doing.

Paul gets a vision from God one night, telling him to not be afraid and to keep on speaking. He is not to be silent in spreading the gospel message to the Gentiles.

Every believer has the greatest message that has ever been told. It is a message that every person on the earth needs to hear about. It is one of joy, peace, love, eternal life, healing, and much more.

Yet, most believers do not share that great message. They cower in fear and silence, not wanting to offend anyone or make anyone mad at them.

As they keep silent, millions of people are dying daily around the world never having known the saving message of Jesus Christ, who can change their lives and give them eternal life.

At the same time, as they are silent about the gospel message, they will talk all day about sports or politics or something else.

People need to hear about Jesus. They need to hear that there is forgiveness and eternal life available. They need to hear that there is One who will be with them through everything, giving them strength and hope to make it.

Instead of being silent and not offending, believers need to spread the gospel message to anyone that they can, every chance they can.

You have been given a message that every person in the world needs to hear. Even though you cannot reach every person, you can reach some.

Do not be afraid to talk about Jesus every where you go, to every one you meet. Do not be silent, when you have a chance to speak.

God will use you to reach people for Jesus. He will change hearts and lives and bring salvation into their lives and homes.

This can only happen if you do not stop talking and spreading the gospel message.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that God will remove all fear in your heart to speak; that you will tell everyone you can about Jesus; that God will change hearts and lives through the message you bring; and that you will not stop talking about Jesus.

1 Chronicles 16:8 Tell The World

Telling others

Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. 1 Chronicles 16:8 

Watching or listening to the news is a very common thing for people to do. They want to know what is happening in their city, state, nation and world. The television and internet is filled with hundreds of different sources for news.

Some news is focused on world news, while others are just local. Yet, even other news can be personal news. Facebook is filled with personal news about what is happening in a person’s life.

People get excited to talk about the good things that are happening in their life. They will also talk about the negative things that are occurring. Either way, people love to talk about what is happening and want to know what is happening in the lives of other people.

As David had the priests set up the ark of the covenant for worship, he told the people to being to give praise to God. In the process of giving that praise, they were also to tell the world what God has done for them. God had established them and made His presence among them.

Every believer has something to talk about. They have a news that is greater than any other news ever given. As soon as one becomes a believer, he has the message that he was a dead man, sentenced to die, but has been forgiven, set free and given eternal life. That is just the minimum of what God has done for the believer.

Each day believers can talk about how God has given them another day, the joy God has given them, the strength He has given, and all other provisions He has given. The world needs to know these things. They want to see what God has done and how it has changed a person.

God has done the same things for you and probably much more. Think about all the things God has done for you in your life. Now you must go and tell the world that news.

If the world can freely share all the bad news around the clock, you can share the best news ever around the clock. Someone out there is waiting to hear what you have to say about Jesus.

Take the time today to proclaim the name of Jesus and tell what He has done and is doing in your life with someone.

I pray today that you will know what God has done for you; that you will tell others what God has done; that you will not be ashamed of Jesus; and that many will believe in Jesus because of your story.
