Being Dead

I have heard many people wondering about where a deceased loved one might be. I don’t remember hearing anyone answer the questions with any Scripture but 2 Corinthians 5:8. There are many other very relevant words to be found, though. This article lists a few of those relevant words, with comments. […]

Hunting * Gathering * Serving

* What is gathering food for your household like: (a hunting expedition, a treasure hunt, a boring drudgery, taking a beating, etc.) * What are some of the types of food in your cupboard? (Fresh, perishable, long term storage, frozen, etc.) * What is your favorite means of preparing food? (Frying, baking, stewing, microwaving, raw, […]

Ordinary Miracles

Today a friend went through a test. As a result of a series of errors in their judgement, other people suffered loss. Before they went before a court to determine what they were guilty of and what their sentence should therefore be, we prayed. I felt led to ask our Wondrous Father for much grace […]

Worship in Truth

John 4:19-24 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor […]

Motivation

Your motives become your motivation. Everything isn’t this simple, but most of our motivations are either related to our dreams or our fears. If you are afraid of failure, your dreams become a puff of smoke. If your dreams drive you to accomplish, to build, to assault what is wrong, your fears have been silenced. […]

Reflection

Every good thing we do is a response to something Jesus has done. We worship because He revealed how wondersful He is. We love because He first loved us. We work because we see Him working. We forgive because He forgave us. The greater and purer your revelation is of His identity and of His […]

Soul Armor

Your soul can’t protect your soul. You have to be strengthened by the Lord and His power. The enemies you need protection from are spirits. You are, too. His Spirit empowers your spirit to overcome those spirits. Maybe the armor you need to put on is Him. He is the Truth, the Righteousness, the Covering. […]

Super Rational

One of my favorite advisors advised me this morning to stop calling myself crazy. Yes, most of what I believe I am to accomplish before I die is impossible, but that doesn’t mean that I am crazy for expecting it to happen. Yes, the people who receive the most encouragement through me are people who […]

Spiritual Sowing

Galatians 6:7-10 (NKJV)                                                                                                Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Life that never stops is a valuable […]

What Just Happened

What just happened is not NEARLY as important as what happens NEXT! No matter what just happened, whether it was the biggest mistake you have ever dreamed of making, or the grandest success, what happens next is always more important. If you made a mistake, and what happens next is not an educational experience that […]
