Daily Bread 1/18/2024


Daily Bread – January 18, 2024 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Luke 17:10 – So you also, when you have done all you were commanded, say, “We are servants not deserving of praise, for we have done that which was our duty.” Faith Works Samson was anointed to deliver Israel from their enemies, so when he was at work, he could walk away with the gates of the city, or kill thousands with the jawbone of a donkey (Judges 16:2-3; 15:14-17). Joshua was anointed to lead Israel into the promised land, so when he was at work, he could command the sun to stand still and the moon not to move (Joshua 10:1-15). Now, we have been anointed to preach the Gospel! We have been anointed to proclaim liberty to the captives, the opening of the prison doors to them which are bound (Luke 4:18; 2 Corinthians 1:21; John 14:12). We can pray and ask God to do all these things through our lives, but unless we go to work, the anointing is not going to be demonstrated through us. However, if we are willing to engage in the service of the King of Kings, then the things we need to accomplish the task are going to be there for those who will believe. God has required these things of us. Moving in the faith and the power of the Holy Spirit is our duty, so no one has to talk God into blessing us with this ability. This is our servitude, our responsibility. It is what we have been commissioned to do, so everybody just get busy and watch as the mighty hand of God works great exploits of faith through you! Get to work! Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
