Life Lesson: March 13

13 Mar

Exodus 14:8. The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly.

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
He is trampling our the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
He hath loosed the fateful lightening of his terrible swift sword.
His truth is marching on.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.”

When given the choice between fight or flight, the latter usual goes first. I do not intend to start out that way, as a matter of fact, I do not even think about it. The reality is that the moment I am asked to do something hard, I cower. I can make up excuses so fast you would never believe I even had time to process the request.   Hebrews 4:16 tells us that we can approach the throne of grace with boldness. If we can be bold before God…. You know, the God who wiped out the entire Egyptian army in one wave of His hand? If we can boldly approach Him, what makes us cower in the face of difficulties? Do we really think that money problems, difficult people, loss of work or pain can do more than the Great King of Kings whom we will spend eternity with?

Perspective. It is all about perspective. Once we realize that God is for us, we can begin to grasp that no one can be against us. The Israelites marched out boldly, we can do the same.

Text or e-mail today’s song lyrics and scripture to someone whom God lays on your heart.

Make up movements as you sing this song or repeat the words:
“We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching, marching, we are marching,

Oh, we are marching in the light of God.
We are marching, marching, we are marching,
Oh, we are marching in the light of God.”

Look at the words, Marching Out Boldly, and do an acrostic of the names or characters of God, which are greater than our troubles.

Check the calories and portion sizes of your meals today. Are you eating a healthy and reasonable amount? Are you drinking enough water?

Find 10 minutes to be still. Do nothing during this time. This is God’s time to renew you in mind, body and spirit.

March around your home and claim that space for God and His work.

Pray for the leaders of your church; anyone in authority or leadership. Do not forget the maintenance and cleaning personnel.

Have some green tea tonight. Hot or cold. Add some fresh lemon.

World Prayer
Pray for the president and those in our Federal Government.

Once you are in bed, tighten and relax each part of your body, from your scalp to your toes. Remember your fingers, abdomen and your face.
