Attitude

Rom.12:2 (Voice) “Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.”

 

Gary Player, a world champion in golf, shared an experience. He said he was practising in a bunker down in Texas when an old man stopped to watch. He said his first shot went into the hole. Read the rest of this entry

His Definition

Rom.8:37 “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

Building Faith

John 20:25 “They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.”

 

The question on our minds when we come to God and when we come into His presence or His house, should not be – am I going to be blessed today? The question should be, would God be blessed today because I came into His presence, would I bless God’s heart today? Read the rest of this entry

Celebrate!

Ps.27:13-14  (NKJV) I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

 

To cheer up is a choice. You have to choose to admit how you feel. You have to choose to be in the safe place God where has put you. You have to choose to let someone know when you are hurting. Read the rest of this entry

Your Attitude

Deu.10:21 “He alone is your God, the only one who is worthy of your praise, the one who has done these mighty miracles that you have seen with your own eyes.”

From today’s scripture reference, we can clearly see that God is a God of miracles. Nothing is too difficult for God. Jer.32:27I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?” Read the rest of this entry

His Attitude

John 10:10 “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

The first recorded ministry miracle of Jesus is in John 2:1-11 (please read). What significance do you find in the fact that turning water into wine is the first miracle Jesus worked? Is there a second or third level interpretation? Read the rest of this entry

Gethsemane

1 Sam.23:16-17 Jonathan went to find David and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith in God. “Don’t be afraid,” Jonathan reassured him. “My father will never find you! You are going to be the king of Israel, and I will be next to you, as my father, Saul, is well aware.”

Please read 1 Sam.20:28-32 and 1 Sam.23:15-17 as we delve deeper into the life of Jonathan. The first thing that stands out from these portions of scripture is; even though David had perceived that Saul wanted to kill him. Read the rest of this entry

The Dynamics III

Matt.19:5-6 (KJV) “And said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

For what cause? For the cause of marriage “…shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh…” When a man confuses his mother for his wife, Read the rest of this entry

The Dynamics II

Col.3:20-21 “Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged.”
