Watch Him Work!

How often do we limit God?  When you pray do you allow your wildest dreams to be of request or do you think you shouldn’t bother him with it?  Do you allow him to help with your goals… do you picture him answering the request of your imagination… he only wants to do more than you could ever ask or imagine.  God’s unlimited love for you makes no request to small.  No request to big.  If your prayers, your request and the dreams of your imagination do not scare you then they are not big enough for God.  Ask… step back… and watch him work.

Ephesians 3:20

Human AND Divine!

Why does everything have to be either human or divine? 

Are we not made in his image?  We believe that being human means we have to earn our way to being divine.  Are we not already divine by the holy spirit? Then why do we work so hard to earn his love?  Don’t we already have it simply by being his children?  We are conditioned by this world into thinking that we have to earn everything.  That nothing is free.  His love is…  His redemption is…

Being divine is a product of his glory.  Of his spirit.  Not a product of our doing but of his.  

“I came to save you from glory to glory!”

Don’t Lose Sight!

I write the messages he puts on my heart.  I spend each morning with a prayer of thanksgiving for his grace…  for the blessings he so richly pours on my head.  As I reflect on the prayers… the writings… do I truly understand the level of favor I have.   We go from day to day taking so much for granted.  We don’t give a second thought to so many of the comforts we abide in.  I then see a home that is made of cardboard and wire.  I see people who stand in the rain looking for a simple dollar for food or shelter.  Father forgive me for losing sight of all you have done and will do for me.  Forgive me for losing sight of the riches and love you so freely put in my life and on my heart.  Father I ask that you put  people in my life that I can pass it on to.  I want them to see the glory of you and your love.

James 4:13-17

Where Is Your Heart?

Where do you find your heart?  When you lay down, is your heart on worldly matters or our Savior?  I see stickers “I heart my dog” – “I heart my state” – “I heart my country”.  I see people who plan their whole lives around a celebrity as if that person can bring salvation. Still  I see others that put their hope and happiness in worldly riches.  As good as those may be, Christ wants our whole heart, mind, and spirit.  Daily I love my wife so much that I don’t see how it could get any deeper.  Then my heart reminds me,  as important as she is to me,  Jesus stands so far above.  Would you give up family… state… country… and yourself for him?   So where do you find your heart?  Where your heart lies so lies your eternity!

God Has The Answers!

He was simply serving our food.  As I told him we were about to go to God I asked him if there was anything we could pray about. At that moment heartbreak covered his face.  The tears started to flow as he asked that we pray for his 25 year marriage that was in trouble.  As I spoke that prayer I thought of all the hurt… all the heartache… all the pain that so many of us live with daily.  We are all the same.  Everyone has an issue.  Everyone has a story. Everyone is searching for answers in a broken world.  I assured him that we would continue to pray.  We would keep him in our heart and that God can fix his marriage in the blink of an eye.  That hope. That assurance. That faith. God and only God has the answers.  We need only to ask.
