GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 30
GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 30 ~ ~ Numbers 14:24~ ~ “But as for My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.”
Flowers normally have a pistil or female flower-part made up of a stigma, style and ovary, where the seeds develop. This arrangement is surrounded by male pollen producing stamens.
But in 1990, a flower that dared to be different was found in southern Mexico that has only one stamen, which is surrounded by about 50 pistils. It is so different from any other plant that it took botanists a year to classify it.
They didn’t know how to, because of this confusing “difference”. It particularly was difficult for evolutionary-believing scientists. It simply doesn’t fit their narrative.
Believers are like this flower. Our thinking just doesn’t “fit the narrative” of the world system. I suspect that He placed so many of these very different creatures in the creation to show the world that He can do as He wishes. He makes the rules.
I believe He also is giving a message to His people, true believers. He’s showing us that, as He says so many times in His Word, we need to be different too! We need to come apart from the narratives and customs of this world system so we don’t get drawn in when the pull and push from it becomes greater.
“Do not be mismatched with unbelievers; for what do righteousness and lawlessness share together, or what does light have in common with darkness? Or what harmony does Christ have with Belial,(a name for the anti-christ) or what does a believer share with an unbeliever? Or what agreement does the temple of God have with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,
“I will dwell among them and walk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
“And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty.”
This is the day of salvation (2Cor 6:2) The spirit of anti-christ is in the world, as we’re told in 1John 4:3.
And it is obvious that soon the visible anti-christ will appear. Believers will be the first targets.
This is why now, daily, we need to “come out and be separate”. Don’t melt into the world system.
Teach your children to be strong and stand up for Jesus in every situation, or they won’t have the strength when the real trouble comes. Don’t put it off. It takes time to grow. We must stand for small things before we can stand for big things.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified nor dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Be like Caleb! Stand for Truth!
