We are not here to talk religion, but we will talk about what it means to have a personal, daily walk with God. Our goal is to not waste your time and be under 5 minutes. Come! Join the discussion.
We want to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever seen someone that’s athletic? Like right before they compete they have this look in their eye like they’re going to eat someone. They’re determined, they psych themselves up and full of hype. They know how to keep their focus. They don’t let anything distract them away from the goal.
I go to the gym frequently, okay, maybe not as often as I should but I see these guys scream at the top of their lungs and gritting their teeth when they’re trying their hardest to lift weights. If we only approached our day like that. If we only kept our mind that focused, that in tune with what’s ahead of us today, or even in the next moment.
If I could only keep that kind of focus on Living the Freedom Life. If I could keep focused on “Doing what is right”, or being patient, being kind, or being able to patiently teach when the person in front of me just doesn’t want to think for themselves. I need that kind of focus. So what do I do, I try hard to be a better Christian. You see, religion tell us that I have to try harder and do better for me to be a good christian. Following the real Jesus, is much different that that. Remember, we are not here to talk religion but we are here to talk about a genuine relationship with God and what does that look like on a daily basis.
How I act, my behavior doesn’t define “who I am”, it is an expression of what is going on inside. My last name is McMurray. There is nothing I can do to enhance or hinder being a McMurray. Trust me, over the years, I have tested those boundaries many times.
But there are times when I need Stadium speakers to play my theme song in the background while I get my focus on.
You see the only thing that is happening in that time, is that I am realizing who I am and what my potential is in that moment. This goes far beyond a pep talk. This isn’t for the weak.
Any movie that has ever had a theme song playing in the background, you know that you are watching a powerful moment in the story.
So that sounds great, but how do I get there? How do I get to that place?
Psa 40:3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.
When I was saved, a DJ didn’t automatically have my theme song cue’d up and ready to play in the stadium. That verse says that HE put a new song in my mouth. It took a while to get to know the author of that new song. It took me getting to know what that new song was all about. The victory didn’t just show up one morning on my doorstep. It was put in me on that day. As a result, (Eph 4:8)
You have the same potential. He can put a new song in your mouth. It will be Him because He can and will change you. That new song will be a hymn of praise towards God and many will see the evidence in your life. Then they will have respect for Him and put their trust in Him.
Get to know your new song, your new theme song. You know, the song that is being played right before your comeback scene, the scene where you are a conqueror and you are Living the Freedom Life.
