I have fallen way behind in my workbook in my James study (Beth Moore) and yet as ABBA would have it He’s right on time where I picked up today.
The statement that prompted me here is one Beth made on page 108 of the aforementioned workbook: “and then she did something new. She believed God and acted upon it.”
And the light came on! And so to all of us the word is
Do something new — believe GOD.
And one might say I believed GOD a long time ago! And that for sure is true. But what about this?
In that old situation, in that protracted issue that is beyond wearisome – do something new! Believe GOD! And act upon that belief!
Our subject She is Rabah. We can correctly surmise, I believe, that Rahab had long been in her situation. That she had long been taking care of business. But on the day those two Jewish ‘Boys’ came by her house, she did something very new! And the new she did changed her life and her legacy.
Doing something new – Believing GOD – delivered Rahab from prostitution and placed her in the lineage of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
Perhaps we do not need to be rescued, delivered from prostitution; perhaps we don’t even need to be rescued and delivered from some disabling addiction; but I’m thinking there is not a one of us that does not need to do something new about something old.
What would doing something new – Believing GOD – do for you and me? We won’t know til we do!!
If this generates questions in your mind, perhaps we can inquire of ABBA together – send me a comment or an email and lets talk.
