03/13 Reading - Thoughts & Comments DX3

Post by Admin on Thu Mar 21, 2013 9:25 am

13-Mar Numbers 31-33   1 Cor. 9-10 Psalms 56-60 Proverbs 13

Num 32:1-5 (NIV) 1 The Reubenites and Gadites, who had very large herds and flocks, saw that the lands of Jazer and Gilead were suitable for livestock. 2 So they came to Moses and Eleazar the priest and to the leaders of the community, and said, 3 "Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo and Beon-- 4 the land the Lord subdued before the people of Israel--are suitable for livestock, and your servants have livestock. 5 If we have found favor in your eyes," they said, "let this land be given to your servants as our possession. Do not make us cross the Jordan."

Amazingly, there will always be people around you that do NOT want to enter into the land that God has intended fro them. "DO NOT MAKE US CROSS THE JORDAN!" is what they begged of Moses.  Maybe it was the fear of giants, or the fear of living in a new land that was a completely different environment from what they were used to. They had grown used to the desert/wilderness lifestyle, and the thought of change was too much for them.  There is also one word that fits this situation: SUITABLE.  The land was suitable for their livestock and business activities.  It was here, and it was now.  Why risk our lives against giants and great enemies if we could have this land, right here, right now?

I remember the game show (revealing my age) LET'S MAKE A DEAL, where Monty Hall would bring a crazily dressed member of the audience, and start dealing with them. They had choices of what was behind Door A, B, or C, Box 1, 2, or 3, and then at the end, just when they thought they had cut a good deal, Monty would pull out an envelope and offer to trade it all for what was in that envelope.  The excitement was too much for many people and they would just hang on to the rocking chair they had won, only to find that they had given up a cruise for 4, or a brand new car.  It was a great show that brings back lots of memories, watching all the audience members shouting out what to do and which one to choose.  

Did you know that God is playing LET'S MAKE A DEAL with you?  He wants you to live in 3 dimensions, 1. needs met, 2. desires given, 3. dreams fulfilled.  But most people can't get past dimension 1, needs met.  If I can just get my bills paid, that's all I want.  Have you ever heard someone say, "I don't want to be rich, I just want to have my bills paid." ?  That person is misled, fearful, and selfish.  They are not willing to launch out into a lifestyle of their dreams which would allow them to help others.  No, they will only pay their own bills, and not help widows, orphans, and the needy.

There are critical points in God's LET'S MAKE A DEAL where you and I will need to forsake all to take the new opportunity.  We will have to invest what we've saved so far in order to make the supreme jump into the next realm.  We will have to take risk and move by faith.  We could lose it all, or gain it all.  This is the challenge that God puts before us, and He promises to walk alongside of us while we advance towards our dreams.

Matt 13:44-46 (NIV) 44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

Undoubtedly, there is coming a LET'S MAKE A DEAL moment in your life. It's just around the corner.  It will require that you sell all you have to get that field (and the treasure, which is your dream).  It will take a jump, an action, a step of faith out of the boat, and it will take RISK.  You could lose it all, or gain the dream. How important is the dream to you? If it's highly valuable, you will sell everything for the dream.  If it's not a reality, or if it's not something that you really believe you can attain in life, then it won't be worth much.

These Israelites were afraid of going into the land of promise where there would be war, conflict, and massive risk of losing their lives and futures.  They saw that the second dimension called the wilderness was SUITABLE for their current business structure and for their families.  Yes, they would need to build fortified cities to keep their families safe from the enemies in the land, but they just didn't want to go onward to God's dream in the land of promise.

Will you go onward towards God's dream for your life and family?
Do you highly value the three dimensions of living, needs met, desires given, and dreams fulfilled?
After God makes things really good for you, will you be willing to risk the good to get the gold?

Terrah, Abraham's father, was unwilling to go forward once he found the second dimension for his life.  When he found the good, he stayed and forsook the gold because for the first time in his life, things were really good.  Many forsake the gold because they have landed in good.  This is a poverty spirit that holds people in the land of good, and makes good the enemy of God.  Terrah stopped in Haran and settled short of God's promise.  It's there that he died, and God had to raise up his son Abram to carry on the vision towards the land of promise.

Gen 11:31-32 (KJV) 31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. 32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

COMPASS GUIDE students will not stop short of the promise.  Their goal and intent is the third dimension, not the first or second.  Therefore, they will implement and prepare to make certain steps of faith and risk in order to attain the promise of God for their lives, the dream, the ultimate fulfillment of God's calling on planet earth.  What an exciting life to live! "LIVING THE DREAM!"  Come along with us on a journey that will bring your heart's desires and dreams to pass while fulfilling all that God has called you to do on earth!   sunny king  sunny
