Hard Work & Enjoy Times of Refreshing

Fresh Manna 2009© by Pastor Tim Burt

Proverbs 6:6-8 (NLT) Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and be wise! Even though they have no prince, governor, or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter.

Renee and I just returned from our vacation. We spent ten day on the gulf in Mexico. We had really needed some rest as we had worked extremely hard this past six months. When we really need to rest, we try to get out of the country. It seems with technology, no matter where we are in the United States; we are still contacted and can’t make the mental break from everything we desperately need. (Of course that’s really our fault for just not turning off everything.) When we get out of the country, we do and we stay disconnected for the entire time. It leads to the quiet time we need alone together.

I really don’t know how others do vacation. I just know that Renee and I probably don’t do them like too many others. When we get away, we don’t stay up late and sleep in. We get up early - really early, to watch the sunrise and to read our Bibles and pray as the ocean waves roll in. We also set our sights on eating healthy and lean. We eat a healthy breakfast, skip lunch and eat an early dinner. We both come home having lost weight. I doubt if that is typical. Most of the people around us eat and drink all day on their all-inclusive deals. We also always try to stay at location with a fitness center. Each day we go in and work through our exercise routines. By the time we have done this for ten straight days, our pumps are re-primed with motivation to stay in this routine when we get home.

Beyond all that, we spend the rest of the time, swimming (body-surfing for me,) reading, and relaxing. To us, this is our perfect vacation. We spend great time together and great time with God. Each morning we sit together at the ocean having spend time in the word of God and then sharing what God was speaking to our hearts. We then pray for all of our loved ones and those God has given us in our realms of responsibility (including you!) All together this made for a wonderful time of refreshing for us.

On the 9th day of our 10 day vacation, we looked at each other and both said we were ready to come home and get back to work. Vacation is great but there comes a point where it can work against you. Rest is critical but, once you get it, it’s a joy and blessing to be able to work hard, especially if you can find purpose in your work. Some jobs seem more significant than others, but neither Renee nor I have tried to find significance in our job as much as we’ve tried to find significance in how we’ve done our job and treated others while doing our job. For fourteen years of my life I was a flight attendant in the airline. Serving coke and seven-up at 35,000 feet didn’t necessarily feel significant. But, living to be a light and witness for Jesus always did. That was my inward drive. When I had a business it was the same thing there. The interaction with people and bringing the love of God is what made my job significant.

Anything can tire you out after a while and we all need to find ways to get refreshed, but hard work is a part of a healthy life when kept in balance. Putting your hand to whatever God has given you to do and doing it to the best of your ability and unto the Lord develops character and inward strength.

Today’s Fresh Manna verses say, Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and be wise! Even though they have no prince, governor, or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter. Proverbs 6:6-8 (NLT) This verse reveals that hard work is wisdom in action. It reveals unneeded supervision to be motivated. It reveals planning for good times and bad.

The continuing verses go on and speak to the opposite of this wisdom saying, “How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-- and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11 (NIV) These verses always help remind me that there are limitations to our times of taking a break. Our flesh would lean to the lazy and permanent vacation if we let it go there. But good hard work and then periodic times of refreshing to relax, smell the roses, and thank God for His blessing on your life are a good mix.

Over all our years, Renee and I have felt that if we wanted to keep our usefulness to the Lord at its highest, then working to maintain this balance was one of our highest priorities. Consequently we have strived for that and done pretty well. The last couple of years – with the continuing ease of technology, we violated that somewhat and seemed to do some work on our time away. Not this time. We disconnected. We got refreshed. And we are back ready to charge and work hard.

The ability to work hard and be a light for Jesus is a gift – a precious gift. Keeping yourself in that place daily where you can let His Word speak into your life, give your thoughts and cares over to Him, and trust Him for His help each day is critical to your daily refreshing. It is all important to you and the wisdom of God!

The Joy of Letting God Work In You!

Fresh Manna 2009© by Pastor Tim Burt

Special Note from Pastor Tim: Hi Readers. I just wanted you to know that this will be my last Fresh Manna for a couple of weeks. I have not taken a break from writing for over three years – even on my vacations. I am going to this time! Renee and I have been working furiously hard the past six months and we are going to take two weeks off together just for ourselves. No writing, no work, no phone calls or emails - nothing – just each other. I’ll be back to writing on Tuesday, March 31st. In the meantime, you can go to my web site: http://readfreshmanna.blogspot.com/ and click on the archives button and you’ll find hundreds of past devotions I have written you can read. We’ll be praying for God’s best for each of you every day! Thanks for your understanding for the break!

Your servant Pastor Tim

Hosea 12:6 (NLT) “…come back to your God! Act on the principles of love and justice, and always live in confident dependence on your God.”

Many years ago, when all four of our children were very small, it was quite a feat on Sunday mornings to get them up early, get them fed, dressed, and in the car for church. For a season it was stressful most every Sunday. It was the only day of the week that demanded that particular routine. I just kind of had this expectation that because we were going to church, things should be peaceful and go smoothly. It seldom was! Anyone who has small children knows exactly what I'm talking about.

During those years as a younger Christian, I was working hard at learning patience. I was trying to keep cool in those stressful moments. I was trying to love each of my children and give them the godly help and nurture they needed. It seemed like there were too many Sundays where if I was grading myself, I would have given myself a low grade. It made me feel bad. I had a tendency to beat myself. I'd talk to the Lord about not wanting to be some plastic hypocritical Christian who didn't love his family the way he was supposed to. At times like that the Lord would forgive me and encourage me to remember that I was a work in progress and that I'd get it over time if I just kept seeking Him for help.

Over the years, I’ve changed a lot. The Holy Spirit is a wonderful helper. It’s important to lean on the Lord in prayer and let His Word be the mirror of what you purpose to become instead of looking into your own mirror. When I looked into my own mirror I saw a guy that couldn't measure up and that fell short in his efforts way too often. If I'd have kept looking in my own mirror - examining too closely my failures vs. successes, I'd have quit trying. Instead I looked at who and what God said I was "in Christ." 2 Cor 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” God said He made me a “new creation” and I believed what He said. I was new “in Christ” and that God was doing a new work in me. I had to be patient for transformation to happen. I kept focusing on what God said I was and worked to match that. For example, 1 Cor 13:4-7 says, "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Instead of meditating on how often in failed at these I instead made them the continuing prayerful confession of the work God was doing in my by His Holy Spirit. I'd say, "Jesus, though I missed it again today, I thank you that I have a beautiful wife who loves me and is patient as I become a godly man. I thank you that your Word says I have "your love shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Ghost." (Romans 5:5) Because I do, I thank you that I am patient and kind. I do not envy. I rejoice in others blessings. I do not boast. I know every good thing in my life is because of Jesus. I am not proud because I don't want the glory for what Jesus has done in me. I am not rude because I love people and want to represent you. I am not self-seeking because you've directed my life to be about helping others. I am not easily angered because I am patient to know others perspectives and they usually shed light on a situation. I keep no record of wrongs because you have forgiven me every time I ask. I Praise You! I hate evil because you do and will work to expose it, not secretly live in it. I will work to protect, trust, hope in, and persevere in my love toward people because that is the purpose of the life you have given me in Christ."

I’ve made way too many faults and made way too many mistakes and sins along the path of life. If I focused on those, I'd never change, only become discouraged. Instead I let God's Word be the letter and mirror of my heart and who He has created me to be. I would pray and say what God said about me often, daily, and sometimes even more often.

Over the years God did do a work in my. I leaned on this promise - Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." It made me thankful because if God was confident of performing a good work in me, then I could be confident of it too.

On my way to church this Sunday morning all these years later, there were a few stressful things going on. I responded to them with great patience and calm. Suddenly the Lord spoke to me about how I had actually changed over they years. He was encouraging me that He had done a great work in me (and still is!) I was so thankful for His encouragement. It reminded me of how today's Fresh Manna verse: "Act on the principles of love and justice, and always live in confident dependence on your God."

I was so thankful for His grace in helping me change and grow. I’m just as dependent on Him today as I was those many years ago. It’s just that I have a confident dependence. Praise His name!

In His Love,
Pastor Tim Burt

Keep Your Life in "Shape!"

By Renee Burt

Sometimes life (and the people in your life) will pull on you in so many directions, you begin to feel like one of those cartoon characters whose arms and legs can be stretched to the outer limits (and beyond)! And at those times, it can take just one extra pull to cause your emotions to snap…which usually takes the shape of saying words you never meant to say, never intended to say, and never should have said. Now, don’t go acting like you don’t know what I mean! We all have times like this, hopefully few and far between, but we have them, nevertheless. I’ve had a few of them myself lately! So how do you avoid making those missteps with your mouth that only add more stress, pressure and drama to your situation? You TRAIN yourself to walk away, calm down, and refuse to say even one word until you can say what will help, rather than hurt, the situation at hand. This is one of the hardest things I’ve had to learn in life…but it’s also been one of the best things I’ve learned in life. Who did I learn it from? The One who cares about me, Who loves me, Who knows what I’m going through, and Who wants to help me make it through and come out on the other side…without having had to first walk through a quagmire of the consequences that always follow when I let my mouth get the better of me. So next time you feel those stretched out emotions ready to snap, train yourself to keep your tongue from saying a word until you’ve pulled yourself back together. Trust me…better yet, trust Him…it’ll keep your life in much better “shape!”

Proverbs 21:23 NLT ~ Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut and you will stay out of trouble.

Settle Down!

By Renee Burt

Yesterday was a warm day outside, which not only thrilled me after our cold winter, but it obviously thrilled the squirrels and birds too. I couldn’t help but be amused by one particular squirrel in our backyard. It was running all over the yard, looking like it had no clear destination in mind. And it certainly didn’t look like it was accomplishing a whole lot by running around in a rather hyper static way. Then I looked up and saw a bird doing the same thing…just flitting here and there and everywhere, but never arriving anywhere. And the funniest picture came to mind…it was of myself! I thought about how I get excited about something, and I have a human tendency to do just what that squirrel and bird did! In other words, I lose some focus and begin something else in the middle of what I’m already doing…but then I try to get back to what I should be doing, until the pull of this new thing I’m excited about pulls me away again. And so it goes. I flit here and there and everywhere…and in the end, I may not wind up at the “destination” I needed to arrive at that day. The Bible has a solution for that…it’s to settle down…or you could say to stay focused…or stick to the task at hand…so I can arrive each day at the place He is wanting to take me. So I need that Word for myself today. Well, really I need it everyday! How about you?

Proverbs 27:8 MSG ~ People who won't settle down, wandering hither and yon, are like restless birds, flitting to and fro.

Part 3: What Helps You Hear Gods Voice

Fresh Manna 2009© by Pastor Tim Burt

James 1:25 But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

Every follower of Jesus Christ was given a gift – the ability to hear the voice of God. It isn’t like hearing an audible voice. It’s more like an impression in your heart that happens. It does happen and it is real! Learning to hear the voice of God can be the most wonderful of all continuing life experiences

Yesterday, I left off here: If you are a parent, you probably understand the blessing it is when your children pay attention to you and what you say. You know you want to help them. When they disregard you, they’ve literally stopped hearing your voice. When they esteem your voice by paying attention and listening, and do what you say, then you are blessed and they are blessed. This is what increases our ability to hear the voice of God – esteeming His voice and learning to do what He says. James 1:25 says, But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law (His ways and precepts) — the law that sets you free — and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. Allow the words and if you do what it says to become illuminated within you.

The point of God speaking to us beyond sharing His love and encouraging our hearts, is to instruct us in life - so that we may learn what we should pursue and gravitate toward and what we should avoid and flee from. What He leads us to pursue will bring blessing to our life. What we should avoid will steal, destroy, and bring the touch of death to our life. God spoke to His people and said, “Choose life that you and your descendants might live! Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey him and commit yourself to him, for He is your life…” Deut. 30:19-20

Blessing is God’s desire for you. DOING what God says is what enables you to continue to hear God’s voice most clearly and most often. If you read and allow God’s Word to hold the same value as all the other voices that speak through mankind, then you’ve devalued God’s Word – His voice. Again, Psalm 29:4 says, The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. Doing what God says is what helps you to continually hear God’s voice. Hearing and doing is what trains your heart to hear more and more clealy. So then, the question becomes, how can we become better at doing what God says?

People have no idea of how much pride works to creep into their life. Many people would say, “I’m not prideful. I don’t act cocky or arrogant. I don’t even have that great of a self esteem.” That doesn’t mean someone doesn’t have pride. Here is the greatest indicator that pride is an issue. The second you think you can do life without the help of God, you’ve got pride issues. The day you think you don’t desperately need His Word to instruct and lead you, you’ve got pride issues. The day you think you can “get the job done” without the help of the Lord through prayer, you’ve got pride issues.

People often feel secure in themselves and what they can accomplish until that security blanket has been pulled out from underneath them. Crisis most often exposes vulnerability and need. Pride will work to blind you of your need for God and His help in your life. Knowing daily of your desperate need of God’s grace and help is the only vital health sign that you are not overcome with pride.

Shortly before Jesus was to be taken, beaten, and crucified, He told His disciples that this would be happening and that they would abandon and desert Him. Peter declared, "Even if everyone else deserts you, I never will." Matthew 26:33 That was Peter’s pride speaking. Jesus went on to tell Peter that his only chance of survival of not denying Him would be through prayer. He told Peter, “Satan wants to sift you like wheat.” Jesus told Peter that He prayed for him so that he would not completely fail. From there they went to the garden where Jesus prayed. He repeatedly asked them to pray along with Him. Instead they slept. When Judas and the soldiers came to take Jesus, His disciples fled and deserted Him just as He said they would. A revelation of a desperate need for God’s help through prayer was missing amongst each of them because of pride. But not for Jesus! He prayed and He fulfilled what God asked Him to do. He was a doer. He heard God’s voice and He did what God asked.

You’ll never in your own strength be able to do the kinds of things – even the smallest of things that God asks you to do or change in your life if you don’t understand that the strength to obey God lies in the power of prayer.

Go read the story of Daniel. He was the godliest of men in the most ungodly environment possible. Yet, he was mightily used of God. How? He heard and he obeyed. How did he manage that? He had no pride. He stayed desperate for help and strength through prayer all of his life. Daniel 6:10 But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.

This is the only way to hear the voice of God in the way He intended. He intended it for you! Learn to hear and obey and you will soon learn that you hear His voice even more!

Part Two: Hearing God’s Voice

Fresh Manna 2009© by Pastor Tim Burt

Psalm 29:4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

Learning to hear the voice of God can be the most wonderful of all continuing life experiences. Learning to hear the Lord’s voice comes through a combination of things that we incorporate into our life starting with receiving Jesus as Lord of our life. From there many things contribute to learning to hear God’s voice. The Word of God begins to speak to us as we learn to read the Bible. The Holy Spirit begins to speak to you in special and intimate ways as you learn to worship God. As you pray and have times of being quiet, the still small voice of God will sometimes minister things to your heart. God speaks to us through sermons and teachings. God finds many ways to speak to us. He always speaks to us in line with His Word. It isn’t like hearing an audible voice. It’s more like an impression in your heart that happens. It does happen and it is real!

Jesus said, “My sheep recognize my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” It is the Holy Spirit within you that enables you to hear God’s voice. In John 10:27 Jesus said, And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world at large cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But you do, because He lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. John 14:16-18

Today, I want you to continue helping you learn what is key to hearing the voice of God. I touched on it yesterday but want to dig deeper today. It has to do with letting God speak to you through His word but then you responding to it. As we read these verses, look for words relating to hearing. James 1:22-25 And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself. For if you just listen and don't obey, it is like looking at your face in a mirror but doing nothing to improve your appearance. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law—the law that sets you free—and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

Did you catch the last the words of the last sentence. It says, “If you do what it says, and don’t’ forget what you heard…” It is implying that when you read God’s Word, that you’ve not just read something but that you’ve heard something. God’s Word speaks! Every time we read God’s Word, before we end that time, we should ask the question, “Lord, what is one thing you are speaking to me today?” Pray it before you read and ask it after you are done. It says the way to elevate God’s voice in your life is to know what it is speaking to you and then doing it. This for many people is where the voice of God begins to fade and they lose their sense of hearing Him. They do because they don’t pay attention to what God is saying. They don’t seek to know what He is speaking and then they don’t incorporate it into their life. He may be speaking about love, or giving, or being kind, or being careful with what you say, or possibly forgiving some one. It could be any number of things. But you have to first hear it and then esteem what God is speaking to you about it. It’s at this point you attempt to walk out and obey what He is speaking to you about. That should be a part of your daily prayer!

God will often correct us like a parent does a child. A good parent doesn’t heap guilt or verbally abuse their child or call them stupid or amplify their faults. A good parent from a heart of love, wanting the best for their child, instructs and teaches their child how to do the right thing from a pure motive and heart. A good parent does this so that their child will grow up having developed godly character becoming one who is a blessing to all of society. That is what God does with us. He is not trying to point out our shortcomings or sins to condemn us. He is trying to help us. He is loving in speaking to us. The devil is the accuser that attacks and makes us feel bad. You need to learn the difference between the two. If the voice you hear is uplifting and full of love, it is the Lords. If the voice you hear is condemning and heaping guilt on you – seriously – it’s Satan! Cast down that voice. That is not the voice of the good shepherd Jesus.

If you are a parent, you probably understand the blessing it is when your children pay attention to you and what you say. You know you want to help them. When they disregard you, they’ve literally stopped hearing your voice. When they pay attention and listen and do what you say, you are blessed and they are blessed. That is what increases our ability to hear the voice of God – esteeming His voice and learning to do what He says. Today’s Fresh Manna verse says, The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. Find a way to esteem what He says to you today. Take a piece of paper. Jot down something you feel He has spoken to you through His Word today. Carry it in your pocket and think about it. As you do this, it will cause you to hear His voice much more often.

Tomorrow: Getting help with obeying what He is saying to you….

Hearing God’s Voice

Fresh Manna 2009© by Pastor Tim Burt

James 1:22 And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself.

Do you realize that as a believer, Jesus is there to help you learn how to think through and handle ever situation in life. It’s the truth. If you will spend time with the Lord in His Word and in prayer, He will guide you. His Holy Spirit will guide you. Many believers struggle with this because they think they aren’t hearing from God. If they aren’t spending time in God’s word and prayer, then they will struggle to hear from God. They’ll have what can seem like an impossible task of sorting out what God is speaking to their heart from the myriad of thoughts and imaginations floating or racing through their minds.

God has given every believer the Holy Spirit to guide and teach us - to bring insight, understanding, and revelation of what God’s word means and is speaking to us as it applies in real life situations. Jesus told us He’d send us His Holy Spirit and then He said, When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth… John 16:13

We don’t just want to know God theologically. We want to know God personally as our Heavenly Father. We want to learn to hear His voice – the voice that speaks to our hearts about personal things and situations in our life as we read His Word – the Bible. We want to hear His loving, encouraging, instructive voice that helps us and that shows us how to live life His way. It’s where help and blessing are found. He’d love nothing more than for us to learn to hear His voice. Jesus said, “My sheep recognize my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

And so, as I said, many believers struggle with hearing God’s voice but the trouble is not with God. It’s with themselves. Praying – having a reverential heart conversation with God is something God responds to. Sometimes He initiates the conversation. Sometimes you do – just like in everyday life. But, if you spend little to no time in His Word and in prayer having these kinds of conversations with God, then you will struggle to hear from Him. When you do think you hear from Him, you’ll struggle in sorting out your thoughts and imaginations from what you might think is Him. That’s why you spend time in His Word. He speaks through His Word. It is when you are reading His Word or have it in your heart that He speaks through it. He takes what is written and makes it part of a conversation or time of instruction with you.

But, here is what makes someone a real listener and hearer of God’s voice. They don’t only learn to listen – they respond! Responding is taking action to what God says and as you do, watching God work through your obedience. James 1:22-23 gives us more insight saying, And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself.. if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

You can’t obey what you don’t hear. So learning to listen is first. That should lead to obeying. This explains why people have trouble hearing the voice of God. They don’t esteem what God says to them. They don’t value it. If they did, they’d obey it! It’s when we listen but don’t obey that the voice of God becomes just another voice in our head. Pretty soon it all becomes confusing and jumbled with every other thought we have. Then one is left feeling like they never or seldom hear from God.

You want to hear from God! You really do! It’s critical to living out the life God wants you to live. You will hear God through your Pastors and through men or women of God that teach God’s word in such a way that it speaks to you. That is a good thing. But, you need to learn to hear from Him yourself also. The first part of how to do that I’ve already told you. You need to create some quiet times in your life. I would plead with you to do so daily – to sit down and read from the Bible. Before you begin, have a prayer with God. Pray and ask God to teach you through His Holy Spirit living in you, to help you understand what you read. Stay in the New Testament for a while. It’s easier to learn. When you don’t understand what you are reading, ask God to help you understand but for the moment, put it on a shelf. You’ll be amazed when God brings it back to you and helps you understand it. He’ll speak through a Pastor or Bible teacher or someone and you’ll gain insight. Just be patient. Stick with what you can grasp and focus on that. Ask God to help you make changes in your life according to what you read. When you take that approach, you’ll find that God will speak to you and if you are serious about listening to Him and doing what He says, you’ll hear often from Him.

At the same time, don’t stop reading things like Fresh Manna that help teach you about God. They are also critical to your spiritual growth and development.

There is also something that is absolutely critical to helping you hear God’s voice. I’ll share that with you tomorrow. For today, meditate on our Fresh Manna verse - And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself. James 1:22
More tomorrow…
