Do these Words speak to you?
August 1, 2013. It is your turn now. All you have experienced so far has been necessary preparation for this very day. What I want to hear from you is that you understand this — the old way of doing things, effective and powerful though they were, it is a new day and you are being given a new command. No one could be more qualified than you. I have made you righteous as a gift. With that gift comes all the power you will ever need. You just must cross the river before you. No one can do it for you. Go!
Joshua 1:2 (NASB)  “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel.”  Ras Robinson

The Word of the Day: What more can He say to you?

biblethe word of the dayFew hymns deal with the sufficiency of Scripture, perhaps because Christians have failed to realize the great comfort and peace that this doctrine brings to the Christian life. But the first verse of the following hymn contains a statement of this doctrine. It begins by telling us that God has laid a firm foundation for our faith in His Word. Then it says, “What more can he say to you than to you he hath said….?
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed;
I, I am thy God, and will give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.
“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
“E’en down to old age all my people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne,
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.
“The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not , I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake.”
From: Rippon’s selection of hymns, 1787

The Velveteen Woman

Today’s Truth
Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ (Galatians 1:10, NIV).
Friend to Friend
Most of us have read or heard of the childhood classic, The Velveteen Rabbit.Perhaps you first heard the story snuggled in your mother’s lap or like me, as an adult with a child snuggled in your lap. Like many children’s books, the message carries a profound truth that resonates more with adults than with kids.
The story begins…
”There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; his coat was spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers, and his ears were lined with pink sateen. On Christmas morning, when he sat wedged in the top of the Boy’s stocking, with a spring of holly between his paws, the effect was charming.
“The boy loved the rabbit…for at least two hours, but then he was put on the nursery shelf with all the other toys. Because he was velveteen, some of the more expensive toys snubbed him.  Some of the toys boasted about being fashioned as smaller models of real things, such as boats and soldiers. But the rabbit didn’t even know that there was such a thing as a real rabbit. He thought all were just as he was, stuffed with sawdust. But one night, the rabbit made a fascinating discovery.
“The Skin Horse had lived longer in the nursery than any of the others. He was so old that his brown coat was bald in patches and showed the seams underneath, and most of the hairs in his tail had been pulled out to string bead necklaces. He was wise, for he had seen a long succession of mechanical toys arrive to boast and swagger, and by-and-by break their mainsprings and pass away, and he knew that they were only toys, and would never turn into anything else…
“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you.  When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse  “You become real. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
The Velveteen Rabbit wasn’t even sure what a rabbit was supposed to do. He just knew there had to be more to life than being filled with sawdust and sitting on a shelf.
Being real. That’s what really matters. I don’t want to wait until most of my hair has fallen out and I’ve lost my stuffing. I want to be real right now. So what if I don’t look as shiny as the other toys in the nursery.
Yes, sometimes it is painful to become real. It takes courage. But until we do, we’ll find that our existence sitting on the shelves is just a dim reflection of the abundant life that Jesus came to give.
Let’s chat. Click over to my Facebook page and tell me the name of one of the most real people you know.
Let’s Pray
Dear Heavenly Father, I know that You want me to be real and honest with those around me.  Jesus was. He never pretended to be something that He wasn’t and He didn’t pretend not to be something that He was. I am Your child with many faults, failures, and foibles. I made mistakes in my past and will make mistakes in my future. I pray that I will always have the courage to be real with those around me and never participate in religious pretending because of concern over what others may think. I’m just me: saved, sealed, and delivered! In Jesus’s name, amen.
Now It’s Your Turn
Let’s get into Scripture and see what we can learn about being real.
Read Genesis 25:23-34. Who was Jacob?
How did he trick his brother? (Genesis 25:29-34)
How did he trick his father? (Genesis 27)
Jacob was pretending to be someone he was not. In the end, it caused much heartache.
Read Genesis 32:22-30  What question did God ask Jacob? How did he answer God differently than he answered his dad in Genesis 27?
What did God do once Jacob became real and stopped pretending to be someone he wasn’t?

He wants us to be real and use the scars of our past to impact those in our present! That’s what makes them beautiful! Click here to learn more about this life-changing book.
