A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 103

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture:Psalm 82:2 How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?

🔴Greed Is Not Rewarded 

Our God masterfully communicates through His people. What an incredible lesson of death when we seize greed and become opportunistic rather than patiently waiting on the Lord.

Achan and his family were stoned to death. Why? He committed spiritual adultery (cherem), Achan took that which was set apart for Yahweh. (Joshua 7:1)
Thirty-six men died when the Israelites attacked AI, a defeat that didn’t make sense. The Israelites had not suffered any casualties while fighting against Jericho. Those men had families, and because of Achan’s disobedience, they lost their lives.

As you read today’s passages, think about your greed. Have you taken something that God wanted you to give to Him? Don’t wait until others discover your sins; repent now! (Joshua 7:19-21) Our decisions affect our friends and families. As followers of Christ, we are instructed to build, not destroy.

The things we desire may be given to us when we wait.(Joshua 8:2) God gave the plunder of Ai after the Israelites cleansed the camp of the one who sinned. We are all called to be leaders in some capacity as such, listen to God’s command and meditate on His characteristics.

Romans 6:13 We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 101

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture: Joshua 3:8 “Tell the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river.’ ”

🔴Flood Water

If you live near a body of water, you are likely familiar with flooding. Floods can damage homes, take out basements and leave a mess. The cleansing water leaves mud piles, debris, and, depending on what floats to the surface, a horrible stench. In these times, flooding isn’t a celebration; it is a sign of impending catastrophe.


Imagine being led through a place you have not been and God telling you He would be your guide. Let’s place ourselves with the Israelites who wandered through the desert and were finally stepping into the Promised Land. Not to be comfortable but as preparation for their next mission.
God showed His incredible power to a generation who had only heard of their ancestors crossing the Red Sea on dry land. They were about to witness a miraculous wonder.

When rivers flood, all types of things are carried along their surface. Being in the desert, I envision muddy waters. Stepping into this water, one would not be able to see the earth beneath. That’s a faith step- taking obedient action while trusting God!

As you read today’s passages, think about how God commanded the Levites to walk into the Jordan River as it raged through carrying unknown and unseen animals or debris. Consider your actions as you stand at the intersection of obedience and doubt. Is God asking you to trust Him with the next phase of your purpose?

G.R.I.P

God’s

Resources

Impacts me

Personally

 

Hello People of Purpose!

  God is impacting how I am being used. Yesterday, on the Our Given Purpose YouTube channel (Talking on Purpose, with Torrie) I discussed emotions and how they play out on social media. God also led me to go through my Facebook friends list and say each name aloud in pray. Those two events impacted my attitude. My world became even bigger than the scope I was gazing through. The Lord helped me get a firm grip on my purpose. He can help you too. 

~Torrie

5 ways we can get a firm G.R.I.P

  1. Keep evaluating our purpose.
  2. Be honest with ourselves.
  3. Speak truth always.
  4. Be an example.
  5. Pray without ceasing.

Hello People of Purpose!

I am truly understanding the power of our testimonies. God is stretching me in areas I didn’t think were possible. In my flesh God is still using me a sinner an imperfect being to show His great grace and mercy. His kingdom will not be stopped and I want to move with God and not against Him. My rebellion and disobedience were so dark. I couldn’t feel His Light at times. But I was called to Him. Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior called me to do a great work and I am thankful.

My dear Brothers and Sisters you have power within and are destined to work in His garden. There is always a harvest ready to be reaped. Take a few moments today to gather someone into the Kingdom of Christ. 

In today’s podcast Stephanie speaks about something near to my heart. Her transparency and obedience is something I admire. She too was called to action and doubted God’s reach. As you will hear as you listen to her journey of faith, sometimes all God wants us to do is extend the offer and leave the rest to Him.

~Torrie

Obedient’ish’ The Podcast

Focus Scripture Romans 6:15-18

Hello Listeners!

Have you ever done something halfway and thought you would get a full result? I know I have. There are lessons I am still paying for because of disobedience. I thought I was doing things the right way. Actually, I was just doing them ‘my way’. No rhyme or reason just full-blown stupidity and lack of self-control.

But God! He turned my life around. I could be more with Him than I could ever be without. The change in perspective was what I needed to reclaim the life God blessed me with. While I can hear the whispers of the enemy; I yield to God’s bold Words. I follow Christ. Where He leads me I will go.

~Torrie
