His Doing

Ps. 118:23 “This is from the Lord and is His doing; It is marvellous in our eyes.” (AMP].

John 9:2His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (NRSV]. Their question was not, is there a sin in this equation? They did not ask if it was as a result of sin, they asked whose sin it was. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Fundamental

Heb. 11:1&6 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (NIV]

Have you struggled to accept miracles when they occur? I am guilty and I will tell you my story. The voice of doubt is so real, and it keeps a lot of us back. Years ago, when the Holy Spirit first began to lead me to some amazingly accurate Word of Knowledge, I would struggle. Read the rest of this entry

The Question, The Answer

Prov.20:12 “Ears to hear and eyes to see—both are gifts from the Lord.”

Our focus over the next few days is on John 5:1-15 [please read]. What was Jesus’ question and what was the man’s response? It would interest you to know that like this man by the pool, most people are not answering the questions they are being asked. Read the rest of this entry

Keys

John 3:30 “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.”

Jesus was an equalizer he came to show man that nobody is better than anybody. In Luke 14:7-11 [please read], Jesus advised that when you go to a party, do not take the front seat because someone greater than you can come. Jesus is saying, people are on different levels.

His Love

Ps. 119:67-68I used to wander off until you disciplined me; but now I closely follow your word. You are good and do only good; teach me your decrees.” (emphasis added).

We [human parents] do not discipline. We do more than discipline, we punish. What is the difference? Remember my story from yesterday? That moment when I see my grandmother and immediately, I wish I was lost again. Read the rest of this entry

Shepherd vs. Cowboy

Ps.26:3 “Your constant love is my guide and your faithfulness always leads me.” (TEV, emphasis added)

Who is your shepherd? I hope that by now you can say Only Jesus! A lot of us know people or are people that travel. When we travel to new places, sometimes we go around the city just to appreciate the sights. Read the rest of this entry

Be Flexible

Ps.145:8-9 “The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.”

Typically, when I am heading in a direction, I am laser-focused and I do not even want to stop. My wife can attest to this. One thing I do not like ever is, if you want me to get you something when I go out, Read the rest of this entry

Dare Not

Gen.3:6 “The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it.”

 

The Bible clearly states that Eve was convinced. Men, this is why you have to keep talking to your wife. Women want to hear something, you be the one that has the agenda and consistently deliver your manifesto. Read the rest of this entry

Better Off

Eccl.4.9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”

 

Yesterday, we established that the concept of “Work-Family Balance” is a myth. Instead, seek “Work-Family Integration” because with integration, equilibrium is attainable and balance is possible. When you have work family integration, your spouse stops competing with your work life and starts collaborating with you and with your work. Read the rest of this entry

Myth Buster

Eph.4:16 “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” [emphasis added]

 

The myth that a lot of us have is, we are trying to create a balance and it is often tagged “Work-Family Balance.” Are you familiar with this? Just like the graphical illustration, you have work life and family life putting pressure on both sides of the scale with a fulcrum at the middle. Read the rest of this entry
