At the moment we are in the warmest part of the US this time of year, down in Florida, about to fly to Nashville, Tennessee to join the rest of our broadcast team for the National Religious Broadcasting Convention. Here we plan to broaden our vision and become more enlightened concerning the new up and coming technology available in the market. Staying relevant in the broadcasting world is key if we are to remain effective in spreading and presenting the gospel in today’s world. So we are geared and ready to equip ourselves as best as possible to excel at the vision the Lord has given us concerning Christian television.
Over the last while I’ve been thinking much about the importance of keeping the Word of God invested in our hearts and minds. No matter what situation we find ourselves in, if God’s perspective in clear inside us, His wisdom and power to overcome will always be accessible to us. God’s way of doing things always brings peace and life right into the midst of whatever we are facing and confusion and fear will always bow out of the picture as they are no match to someone focused on the truth of God’s word.
What a challenge it can be to keep your mind trained to focus on God’s word as a first resort when trouble comes and our emotions are all stirred up! Thankfully, I’ve come to realise that consistency investing the word, one day at a time into my heart and mind is exactly what it takes to train and reprogram my mind to putting God’s way first. Whatever my heart and mind are full of is what is going to respond first when life’s difficulties arise.
Proverbs 16:9 says, “A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.”
We can always rely on the wisdom of God’s word to direct us in the right direction, even when we feel overwhelmed and confused. We can also take great comfort in the truth that we have a Heavenly Father who is constantly watching over us and is completely aware of whether we choose to rely and act on His word in this life. Proverbs 5:23-25 says, “For the ways of man are directly before the eyes of the Lord, and He [Who would have us live soberly, chastely, and godly] carefully weighs all man’s goings.” He will always honour His word concerning us, so we should really make sure it’s His word we are acting on and not our own insights and emotions.
Understanding that to live in the centre of God’s blessing in our lives, is directly linked to keeping His word first place, and this makes our Annual Get Ready Conference a great priority! This conference is focused on teaching and encouraging believers to stay rooted in the truth of God’s word. We have wonderful, anointed men and women come from all over the world to minister to us as we celebrate the Word of God together!
