GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
“How Are You Navigating?”
A baby, while in the mother’s womb, feels the rhythmic beat of her heart and can hear her soothing voice. When the baby is born, the doctor will immediately place the baby on the mother’s chest. Familiarity. A new-born will start life with the familiarity of hearing his mother’s heartbeat which he later will associate with love.
I said that, to say this: A born-again or new Christian is already familiar with God’s Word. The Word of God is the Heartbeat of God. The Heartbeat of God is Love. His Goodness and Mercy is Life. As you grow in your relationship with God let His Word navigate your life.
“Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.” – Lamentations 3:22 (NIV)
“Let God be your Shepherd and focus on being His sheep.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
Just as your parents will give you what you need to navigate through life, so will your pastor, while being led by the Holy Spirit, give you what you need to navigate through your spiritual life. To follow the lead of your pastor is to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.” – Psalm 136:1 (KJV)
It is by the mercy of God that we are here – that we have and do not want – that we are healed and do not perish. We must give thanks to the Lord for His Goodness and Mercy towards us. Remember, God is the Good in your life, He made mercy possible. How?
“God manifested His Mercy through His Son, the Messiah.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
Yet, another reason why we must praise Him. As the song goes: “Jesus, Blessed Savior, is worthy to be praised. In all things give Him glory!” Jesus came to earth – for us! Jesus died – for our sins! Jesus was resurrected – for our salvation! Jesus is worthy to be praised. Praise Him!
How am I navigating? I’m navigating through life by the Word of God – by the Goodness and Mercy of God. I’m standing on the Promises of God!
