In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
In the past few weeks we discussed where my life was at physically, spiritually and emotionally in 2009 as I was having some of these dreams. I started the torch, lost the woman I was madly in love with and became part of a new group to keep my eyes on the Lord. God really helped me get through a hard time that year. He placed me in a position where I could relate to others on a spiritual level and He restored my emotions. In this home group I presented some of what the Lord was showing me concerning healthcare and it was confirmed to me that the Lord was in it. Meeting together is a very important part of us growing our faith and finding our own calling. When we miss the fellowship of believers we miss being built together with the members that will strengthen us. When we gather together the Lord gathers there with us and gives us power to accomplish greater glory for Him. Also forever is a really long time so we need to get used to being together now. The home group my family joined was a big encouragement to the vision the Lord was building in me. When we meet it is to build each other and carry the burdens together so our faith can grow. Together we should remember the great things God has done by praising Him and building the body with gratitude and songs of joy. Do not forsake gathering together instead encourage and build each other up to continue steadfast in the faith. We all need to find the church or group of believers that minister most to us. We need to know we belong and that God has placed us right where we are supposed to be.
Early in 2010 I had an experience with the Lord as I was sleeping one night. I heard in a somewhat audible voice, “You are in the right place for this time.” I woke up abruptly just a few hours later very hot with the fire of God on me. That night He began showing me what I was to know about healthcare and the Kingdom of God. Being in the right place at the right time is an important part of being used by the Lord. Chances are we can be used where ever we are but sometimes there is a place where God needs us to be. So how can we know we know we are where he wants us to be? If we are following Him then there is a good chance we are where we should be. Alone we make many plans but the Lord is the one who plans our steps. He brings us all to where we need to be. The Lord is always with everyone and if we are tuned to Him He will get us where we need to be in an easier way. His wisdom will guide our steps in this life and the next. If we make Him our desire He will be everything we will need forever (Psalm 73:23-26). The Lord has sent His angels on ahead of us guarding us and preparing our path so we will end up where we are going (Exodus 23:20). Jesus Himself went away to prepare a place for us in eternity. If we believe things are on earth as in heaven than here He prepares a place for us as well. We know how to get to our place there so if we follow Jesus here we will find our place to (John 14:1-4). Those who are enemies of God because of only keeping their minds on worldly things will find a path to destruction (Philippians 3:18-19). The treasure in our hearts should not be of this world (Luke 12:34). We should be focused on following the path of God so we can be in the right place He’s prepared for us. If God is the treasure in our heart the right place is the place where following Him is most important.
We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message. If there are any churches or ministries that could benefit from the sharing Tuesdays Torch please let us know so together we can spread the light into dark places. We pray the Lord will continue touching every reader. All of what Christ did He did so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesdays Torch we talk a little more about what He did and talk about what He is still doing. The best thing God has ever done was sending us His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer our prayer is that they will meet the Lord. If anyone wants to make Jesus Christ their Savior send a message to: email@example.com and we will help it happen. Look out for next Tuesdays Torch by email or find it on Facebook by searching Tuesdays Torch. Thanks and God Bless!
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
