The 40 Day, 40 Night Challenge - Day 28

Identity.

Today's Reading:

Genesis 1:27

Jeremiah 1:5

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Colossians 3:1-3

Who are you? Are you a sign that you belong to the world or to him? It is hard for people to answer what do you worship. Because almost no one would say, my body, car, house, title etc. but if I say what are you afraid of losing it makes it a bit easier. I am afraid of losing my beauty to age, or my car or position.

As a guy who once lost everything, I can tell you who I was. My car, my house, my job, my future or even who I was seen with. I was sick. In fact, so sick that when I lost it all in 1993, I actually cried when I had to sell my car. Wow, was I shallow. These were my idols.

I was lucky. I lost it all and God humbled me. I think still, my ego is my biggest fear. My job plays into this. People either love me or hate me. To stay sane I focus on the love part. But love can be addicting and it can easily make your head swell if you begin to buy your own press.

What is your fear and weakness? If I were Satan and wanted to trap you in something that you loved, where would I strike?

It is not something you conquer. It is like alcoholism, you live one day at a time as life can wrap you up and blindside you. You will never see it coming and maybe when you see it now, you don't even know how you got here.

We are commanded not to have false gods or worship idols but I think we do it all the time. I am convinced we are a society that is currently worshiping the Old Testament god Molock and we just don't know it. That is a deeper subject and one worth examining. But, in our own lives, what are those things that you just wouldn't risk losing.

If you knew by standing for what you believed would get you fired or cause you to lose X, would you speak? If what you KNEW God's law was against, would you be willing to take a stand and lose?

I believe we will face this test each in our own way. It may be a test or it may be life threatening, but each of us will face it.

God is looking to us for a SIGN that we are His people. We constantly ask Him for a sign. I think the tables have been turned. The Old Testament teaches us that even the Sabbath is A SIGN TO HIM that we are His people. How are you showing Him?

The only thing now, thank God, I am unwilling to lose, is my soul.

This puts me many times in very difficult positions, especially in the New York media circles. So be it. I have been purchased with His blood. That is too high of a price for me to squander. Besides, I have never been happier nor more at peace. It all comes from Him. May I be better today than I was yesterday at being a sign that I belong only to Him.

Question:

Where does your identity lie? Is it in how you look, or is it how you act? Is it how you talk, walk, run? Is it found in your job? Family? Relationships?

Application:

Today, choose this day whom you will serve. There will be a time coming when we all will have to give count of our days and whom we serve… What will your answer be?

MLK Pledge - #4:

Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

Quote:

“Your real, new self (which is Christ's and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him. Does that sound strange?

The same principle holds, you know, for more everyday matters. Even in social life, you will never make a good impression on other people until you stop thinking about what sort of impression you are making. Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

The principle runs through all life from top to bottom, Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else."

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
