   Judges 6:12  The LORD is with you, mighty warrior

“What we do here echoes in eternity”

We were designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a Centurion, to live with honor before God and others, to live with commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause, to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that will echo in eternity.

September 22: Just Whose "Success" Is It, Anyway?



In recent months a number of personal friends have lost their fortunes in a deepening recession. This morning, one of these men and I meditated through chapters 1 and 2 of Hosea. He, like so many "successful" businessmen, rode a wave of prosperity, assuming it was he who had brilliantly put the deals together in creating wealth. This was also Israel's assumption, so God chose to discipline her:

"She has not acknowledged that I was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine and oil, who lavished on her the silver and gold… " (2:8a)

But that is exactly what we do, is it not? We believe it is our planning, our selling ability, or our talent that brings "success." Thus we, like Israel tend to take the credit unto ourselves.

So God DISCIPLINED her by removing her wealth:

"Therefore I will take away my grain when it ripens, and my new wine when it is ready. I will take back my wool and my linen, intended to cover her nakedness… " (2:9, 10a)

In His enduring love, He then "ALLURED" her back to Himself:

"I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her." (2:14)

Perhaps He will place us in the "desert" in order to help us reestablish intimacy with Himself.

He then "BETROTHED" her again to Himself:

"I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord." (2:19, 20)

And finally, He RESTORED her:

"I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called 'Not my loved one.' I will say to those called 'Not my people,' 'You are my people'; and they will say, 'You are my God.'" (2:23)

I don't know your circumstances, but I do know that God loves us too much to allow us to take credit for any "success" we may experience.

Do you?

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Joshua 24:15
