Man Has Lost God

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to dust. Psalm 104:29

The average person in the world today, without faith and without God and without hope, is engaged in a desperate personal search and struggle throughout his lifetime. He does not really know what he is doing here. He does not know where he is going. The sad commentary is that everything he is doing is being done on borrowed time, borrowed money and borrowed strength—and he already knows that in the end he will surely die! It boils down to the bewildered confession of many humans that they have lost God somewhere along the way. Man, made more like God than any other creature, has become less like God than any other creature. Created to reflect the glory of God, he has retreated sullenly into his cave—reflecting only his own sinfulness. Certainly it is a tragedy above all tragedies in this world that love has gone from man’s heart. Beyond that, light has gone from his mind. Having lost God, he blindly stumbled on through this dark world to find only a grave at the end!

Moving On With Messiah

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Luke 4, Messiah is ministering in Galilee, and the multitudes want Him to stay there teaching and healing. But he says, “I must preach the Kingdom of God to other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” Messiah is saying in effect ‘I have to move on.’ So if Messiah says, “I have to move on,” then what must you say? One of the greatest ways to grow dead in your walk is to simply stay where you are; stop journeying, stop stepping out in faith, stop moving ahead. Messiah’s always moving on, and if you’re His follower, so must you. Have you been stuck in the same rut; dwelling in the past, stuck in anger, pondering what you once had in your life but lost? The Lord’s not staying in it, and neither should you. Move on with your life. Step out in faith. If you want the continuing presence and joy of the Lord in your life, then you have to move on with the Lord. For moving on is the only way to go when you’re going with the moving on Lord.

Today’s Mission – Today, seek the Lord on where you need to move forward and then move on with Him.
