Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Do not worry about tomorrow." -MATTHEW 6:34

Most of us, from time to time or nearly all of the time, worry
about something - our health, our finances, our loved ones, and so
on. Yet the Scriptures say to take no thought for your lives and be
anxious for nothing. Why is worry a sin? I know we consider it
"only human," but worry really implies a lack of trust in God. It
is believing a lie. Identify the lie and you can quickly discover
the Truth. What is the lie? That God is somehow less than
sufficient, that perhaps He will not come through for us.

So you see, the enemy gets us to believe a lie, and then gets us to
think that we are just being "human." So then we accept something
less than the normal Christian life - overcoming - and think that
is just the way it is. Remember: satan has no power apart from our
belief in his lie.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Our old man was crucified with Him." -ROMANS 6:6

Thank God for the Cross of Jesus Christ! For it is there that my
sins are forgiven; it is there that the "old man" died. Yet it is
also true that there is something as wicked, if not more wicked,
than sin, and that is Self. It is true that every sin is rooted in
Self.

As we must initially accept His death for sin, so we must daily
accept our death to Self. As we are once crucified with Him for the
remission of sins, so we must daily take up the Cross, deny our
Self, and follow Him. We walk in the narrow Way just as we entered
the narrow Gate - by way of the Cross.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

""He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world...
according to the purpose of His will." -EPHESIANS 1:4,5 ESV

God is not random. He doesn't act without a Purpose, without a
Plan, without some big Universal Goal. He is not haphazard or
accidental. As much as a writer envisions the completed book before
he begins to write it, and as much as the artist envisions the
portrait in her head before she begins to paint it, God sees what
He wants and "all things work together for good... according to His
Purpose" (Romans 8:28). Creation bears witness to a purposeful,
intentional Creator and so do we. Just as the days of Creation
unfold and we see a progressive revelation of the heart, intention,
purpose, mind, and will of God taking shape in Creation, you can
rest assured that through successive ages God is bringing about His
Will, not just in the physical world, but in the spiritual world.

"Suddenly a great light from heaven shone around me. And I fell to
the ground and heard a voice saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you
persecuting Me?'" -ACTS 22:6,7

All it takes is a millisecond of time for the Revelation to strike
you down. I recall when I first received the Revelation of Jesus
Christ. I had had many religious and spiritual experiences up to
that point, more than the average person. I had been a pastor and
teacher for many years. I thought I really knew the Lord. But one
day God revealed His Son IN me. I was sitting in the backyard
reading the Word and without warning, in my heart of hearts, I
"saw" (not with my eyes, but inwardly) Jesus seated at God's right
hand, and I saw myself raised and seated with Him in heavenly
places (Ephesians 2:6).

That day was like walking out of one room and into another, closing
the door behind me. I got a glimpse into another world. I saw the
real Jesus and realized He was nothing like flesh and blood had
said. Hallelujah!

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should
boast." -EPHESIANS 2:8,9

When you come to the Lord Jesus for the first time, regardless of
the circumstances, it means that on some level you have come to the
realization that you cannot save yourself, that salvation is only
possible through Him. No one seeks a Savior if they believe they
can still save themselves. Only when you realize that you cannot
save yourself will you acknowledge your need for Someone Else to do
the saving. This is usually not the result of some intellectual
argument or emotional plea, but the cold hard reality one faces
after having tried unsuccessfully to do everything on their own.

We may fail once, twice, a dozen times, a hundred times. But when
we finally surrender to God we are decreased, and He is increased.
Practically speaking it simply means a little less confidence and
faith in yourself, and a little more confidence and faith in Christ.

"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because
He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world."
-1 JOHN 4:4

John declares that no matter what comes against us, the One within
us is Greater. It does not matter what you feel like, what you see,
what you hear, what people say, or what the devil does. It does not
matter if Lazarus is dead for four days and is beginning to stink.
It does not matter if the girl dies before Jesus can get there. It
does not matter if the waves are about to capsize the boat. It does
not matter if Paul is stoned and left for dead. Lazarus will be
raised, the girl will be brought back to life, and the storm will
be silenced, and Paul will preach again.

The Greater is always Greater, and the Lesser is always Lesser. We
only have a problem when we see everything else as "greater" and
see Christ as "lesser."

"The Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of
kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and
faithful." -REVELATION 17:14

The Lord is calling out for Overcomers, those who have the
Revelation of Christ and who bear the Testimony of Jesus; those who
demonstrate the preeminence of Christ over all things. That is your
purpose as a Christian - in fact, it has always been God's purpose
for saving you and leaving you on the earth, whether you have
realized it or not. You are NOT on the earth to be constantly
disappointed, discouraged, and defeated. You are on the earth to
demonstrate the preeminence of Christ; to show the world that "the
heavens do rule."

A defeated Christian is a contradiction: it is not your destiny.
Rise up and live according to the truth: that Victory is a Man, and
He lives inside of you, and the One Who lives within you is greater
than whatever comes against you.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"What does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God?" -MICAH 6:8

According to Vines Expository Dictionary of Bible Words, "Mercy is
the outward manifestation of pity; it assumes need on the part of
him who receives it, and resources adequate to meet the need on the
part of him who shows it."

Ideally, forgiveness is based on repentance; but whether or not a
person repents and asks for forgiveness, they are still in need of
mercy (even if they do not deserve it). If nothing else, we can
pray that a merciful God will open their eyes and show them their
true condition. The question is not whether or not someone deserves
mercy, but whether or not they need mercy, and whether or not my
spiritual life is rich enough to extend it to them.

"You seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of
the loaves and were filled." -JOHN 6:26

The ones who seek bread from the Lord will be temporarily filled,
but all who seek the Lord as Bread will be constantly satisfied.
What is more, they will have resources from which to feed others.

It is a shame that many Christians only seek to be filled, and
still they are never satisfied. They are content with a meager
pittance, for a few crumbs from the table (Mark 7:28). They are
constantly obsessed with being filled. To such ones we can only say
that it is time to seek the Lord, not for what He can give you, but
for Himself.

"While they were talking and discussing together,
Jesus himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were
kept from recognizing him." -LUKE 24:15,16 ESV

You see that Christ is revealed or hidden from men as He so
desires. So many professed disciples of the Lord Jesus fail to
recognize Him.

Even His closest disciples are prone to doubt and unbelief. After
the resurrection, Thomas declared, "I will not believe unless I see
the scars and put my hand into the wound in His side." When Jesus
therefore appeared to them He did not argue or try to convince
Thomas. He simply said, "Look! See My hands and My feet!" When
Thomas saw the Lord, he spontaneously cried out, "My Lord, and my
God!" This is revelation. Revelation does not require any arguing
or convincing, as if it all depends on how well we can make a
defense of the Gospel. I see no argument in the Lord Jesus, I only
see Him. Seeing Him, I am convinced, and no argument is necessary.

"Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with
the portion of the king's delicacies, nor with the wine which he
drank." -DANIEL 1:8

The easiest thing to do is to just go along with things, accept
them as they are, and not make any trouble. But thank God for that
decision! Daniel purposed in his heart - a flame was kindled, and
the longer he thought about it, the hotter the fire burned.

While the others were eating and drinking, Daniel motioned to his
three friends, and whispered, "Eat mine if you will have it - but I
will not sin against the Lord in this thing!" And the three
brothers, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, agreed that they would
not eat the meat or drink the wine either. Hallelujah! This is what
the Lord is after - a small company of two or three, gathered
together under a covenant that they will stand for the Testimony of
the Lord, for something Heavenly, regardless of the cost!

"When John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent
two of his disciples and said to Him, 'Are You the Coming One, or
do we look for another?'" -MATTHEW 11:2,3

Have you discovered Him yet, and is He enough, or do you look for
another? We do not proclaim the preeminence of Christ because it is
a nice doctrine to believe in; for us, it is a matter of life and
death, because everything hinges on whether or not Jesus is
preeminent. If He is preeminent then He is Enough, and there is
nothing else but Him, and there is nothing worth proclaiming except
Him.

To John in prison, and to us wherever we may happen to be, Jesus
says, "No, you did not make a mistake. I am the One, but I am more
than you can imagine, more than you dare to dream. Blessed are they
who are not offended in Me."

"It pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell."
-COLOSSIANS 1:19

He must increase; therefore, He will increase, and He is
increasing. It must be so, therefore it is so. It is so simple. He
must increase. Why? Because God has ordained that Christ must have
the preeminence in all things. He clearly does not have that
preeminence in all things now; and so, He must increase until He
does have the preeminence in all things.

This is a Universal Spiritual Principle because it is at work right
now. Whether you believe it or not, whether you understand it or
not, whether you like it or not; the Bible says it must be, and so
it is.

"Called... out of darkness into His marvelous Light."
-1 PETER 2:9

The significant thing to be seen in Creation (and the encouraging
thing to us spiritually) is that God, being God, could not and
would not, permit this chaos, confusion, and darkness to continue
indefinitely. His nature is to bring order, coherency, purposeful
intention, and Light into the world.

We owe our physical life to the fact that God acted upon the chaos
that existed in Genesis 1 and commanded Light to come forth. And we
owe our spiritual life to the fact that God acts upon the chaos and
darkness of our lives and commands His Light to come forth. The
calling forth of Light out of Darkness is a spiritual principle
that teaches us the ways of God. See how He sets aside Darkness
with only a single command: "Let there be Light." It is even more
simple in the Hebrew: "Light: BE!" And so it was.

"I am the light of the world." -JOHN 8:12

Many people write to me and ask how to deal with this thing or
that, how to get the victory here or there. May I say that it does
not matter what your need is, or what your problem is, the Answer
is the same. Victory is a Man, not an experience. If you must fail
a hundred, a thousand, or a million times in order to learn that
lesson then it is worth it.

It does not matter whether you understand it, agree with it,
believe it, or see it yet. Indeed, everything else seems to say the
opposite. But you will see, just as I have seen, that Victory,
Grace, Strength, Peace, Love, Light, and Life are not "things,"
they are Christ, and having the Man, you have everything the Man is.

"He who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy
of Me." -MATTHEW 10:38

It is unfortunate that after many years of service the Lord still
has to call us back to the Cross, yet this is precisely where we
should have begun. Although we ought to encourage people to come as
they are and trust the Lord for salvation, we must also teach them
that they must count the cost and take up the Cross: else they are
not worthy of Jesus! God cannot fill us until He empties us. The
Cross is where we are poured out that He may pour in.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because
they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world." -JOHN
17:14

When we are called to put on the New Man we are challenged with
something radical, something which by reason of Who He is must
result in an upsetting of the natural, earthly order of things. It
is a major upheaval. Why? Because this New Man is Totally Other.
This New Man is of Heaven. This New Man is Spirit. This New Man is
foreign from this world.

And when we put on THIS New Man, we are going to be at once set
apart from the world and earmarked for something larger than we can
fathom with our mind, something apart from flesh and blood,
something we call "Spirit and Life."

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"When you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and Another
will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go."
JOHN 21:18 ESV

One characteristic of young disciples is their ability to dress and
lead themselves. They find it very easy to go out and to come in.
They are zealous and full of good works.

We are not suggesting that this is necessarily wrong, but we are
suggesting that this is only the beginning stage of spiritual
growth. The real question is not what need do I want to fill, or
where do I want to go, or what do I want to say, or what do I want
to do. The question is: what glorifies the Lord? Whenever "I" do
something I consider spiritual and good, it is, nevertheless, "me"
who does it.

Often we do what glorifies us - the Lord and His Need are seldom
considered. But when we ask what glorifies the Lord, we see (in
this passage at least) that the Lord is glorified when He is able
to dress us and lead us where HE wants us to go - with no
interference from Self.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory
by Christ Jesus." -PHILIPPIANS 4:19

We need more than a touch from God; we must have God Himself. There
is an ocean of difference between receiving the blessing and
receiving the One Who blesses; between getting a touch and
receiving the One Who touches; between healing and the Healer;
between redemption and Redeemer; between salvation and Savior. The
former deals with what God has or can do, while the latter deals
with God Himself.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The message of the cross... to us who are being saved, it is the
power of God." -1 CORINTHIANS 1:18

It does not matter what your situation is; the Cross is sufficient.
If the Cross is the power of God for salvation, then the Cross is
also the power of God for your relationships, your spiritual growth
and development, your life's purpose, your encouragement and
strength, and your victory over everything which hinders and
distracts and comes against you. At one time in your life you
learned you could not save yourself - that was the work of the
Cross.

Now, accept the work of the Cross and learn that just as you could
not save yourself, neither can you love God, love your neighbor,
forgive those who have sinned against you, cast out devils, be a
bold witness for Christ, or fulfill your destiny in your own
strength. Just as you once relied upon Christ to save you, so now
you must rely upon Christ to live through you every day. Just as
you continually rely upon Christ for salvation, so you must
continually rely upon Christ for everything else.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers
in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
-1 TIMOTHY 4:12

An older person is not necessarily a spiritual elder. We do not
look to the age of a person's physical body when determining their
spiritual maturity. Of course, we owe a certain amount of respect
to the aged by virtue of their seniority; but they may not
necessarily be our elder in the things of the Lord.

One can be older chronologically and be quite immature in spiritual
matters. Likewise, a relatively young man or woman can have a deep
relationship with the Lord and be light years ahead of those two or
three times their age. A young man or woman who knows God is more
elder than a senior citizen who does not know God. We cannot judge
by the flesh, or we will be misled.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with
her? For 'the two,' He says, 'shall become one flesh.' But he who
is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." -1 CORINTHIANS
6:16,17

One theme that constantly appears in Scripture is the believer's
spiritual union with Christ. This joining together is perfectly
pictured in the illustration of the Ekklesia as the Bride of
Christ. When Paul wished to encourage the Corinthians to "flee
fornication," he made a similar analogy but from a very different
perspective.

The physical joining together of man and woman, whether in marriage
or outside of marriage, has the effect of making them one flesh.
Spiritually speaking, the Bride of Christ is joined to the Lord and
is now one spirit with Him. This is an admittedly difficult point
to get across - even Paul said this is a great mystery, and you do
not usually find him to be at a loss for words when it comes to
explaining something.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?"
LUKE 18:8

This is perhaps one of the most intriguing questions Jesus ever put
forth - from a human perspective it almost sounds as if He wonders
about it Himself. There is no doubt that He will perform what He
has promised to us; but will we perform what we have promised to
Him? Can we patiently wait for Him to fulfill His Word, no matter
how long it takes?

Rest assured that, "Now our salvation is nearer than when we first
believed" (Romans 13:11). Two thousand years after His promise we
are even closer to its fulfillment.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"My yoke is easy, and My burden is light." -MATTHEW 11:30

The Law of Life is more powerful and active than anything generated
or maintained by self-effort. With self-effort I am always at the
mercy of how I feel. If I feel spiritual then I can pray for hours
at a time. But if I do not feel spiritual then I cannot even pray
for five minutes.

This is why so many believers live their lives like a
roller-coaster. They do not live according to principle, according
to the Law of Life. Thinking it is up to them to become
Christ-like, they turn an easy yoke and a light burden into a
difficult yoke and a heavy burden - difficult and heavy for
themselves, and for those who must live and work around them. The
one who rests in Christ will produce more fruit than the one who
strives with self-effort.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. You anoint my head with
oil; my cup runs over." -PSALM 23:1,5

An anointed head and a cup that runs over - this is the hallmark of
the Christian. An anointed head exudes a heavenly fragrance that
sets us apart from the world, even though we walk about in it
daily. It is bearing the Testimony of Jesus that witnesses of a
heavenly reality that is quite distinct from the earthly fact. The
cup that runs over means we have an ample supply of the Life of the
Lord. If we can contain ourselves then we have yet to touch the
Lord. For once we have indeed touched the Lord we will overflow. We
will not be able to contain Him.

All who walk with the Shepherd should experience Infinite Supply: a
never-ending flow of the Life, Light, and Love of the Lord Jesus
Himself. This is the normal Christian life, and it is God's
provision for every disciple.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. If we
live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit."
-GALATIANS 5:18,25

In the wilderness you don't follow your feelings. It says the
children of Israel were led by a column of smoke by day and a
pillar of fire by night. When the cloud moved then they moved. When
the cloud stayed still then they stayed still. I mean it's really
as simple as that.

Walk in the Spirit. If you begin to be led by your feelings then
you'll make the wrong decision every time. Most of the time, the
right decision doesn't feel good. Doing the right thing is usually
difficult. The easiest thing to do is to quit, to give up, to go
back to Egypt. But I'm telling you, get to the place where going
back is no longer an option - then going back is no longer a
temptation.

"Be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being
rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the
saints what is the width and length and depth and height."
-EPHESIANS 3:16-18

We have to come to know the breadth, length, depth, and height of
HIM, and may I say that we will never come to the end of Him. But
we do not search for anything as if we do not have it, nor do we
hope to gain some new thing, for what we call "new" is simply that
which has been seen for the first time. Thus, revelation is
critical, for it unveils what we already have. Having the Son, we
have All.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which
works in me mightily." -COLOSSIANS 1:29

The one who rests in Christ will produce more fruit than the one
who strives with self-effort. This is demonstrated in Scripture and
in the real-life experience of countless saints.

There is no question that Paul worked, labored, and toiled. But the
difference with Paul is he knew that he was laboring according to
Christ working in him. Was Paul lazy? By contrast, he was more
fruitful than ever. The end result is his statement, "I labored
more abundantly than them all," quickly qualified with, "yet not I,
but the grace of God which was with me" (1 Corinthians 15:10). The
"I can do all things" must always be followed with "through Christ
Who strengthens me." If we trust in the Life we will be anything
but passive.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."
-LUKE 18:27

Once God has determined to do something, is there anything, or
anyone, that can resist Him? Is man more powerful than God, or does
it only seem that way sometimes? It does appear that God, in His
infinite wisdom and loving-kindness and patience, chooses to delay
the fulfillment of His Will. Man can try to withstand it, the devil
can rebel against it, and by collaborating with man can even appear
to hinder and prevent it temporarily - but in the end, God will
have His Will.

Let no one mistake God's longsuffering for any inability to bring
about His desire and accomplish His Purpose. His plan is
unavoidable and irresistible.
