Connections

Isa.5:2&4 “He ploughed the land, cleared its stones, and planted it with the best vines… Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes, but the grapes that grew were bitter. What more could I have done… I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?

Proverbs 6:6-8 “Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise!

Wisdom’s Ways

Proverbs 4:11-12 “I will teach you wisdom’s ways and lead you in straight paths. When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble.”

Having margin creates space for all the great things that God wants to do in our lives. Therefore, we need to work for the best and plan for the worst. In other words, we need to have faith and walk in wisdom. The first two areas where we need to create margin are with our Finances and with our Time. Read the rest of this entry

The Garden

Luke 13:19 “It’s like a single mustard seed that someone took and planted in his garden. That tiny seed grew and became a tree so large that the birds could fly in and make their nests in its branches. (Voice, emphasis added).

How do you establish the Kingdom as a teacher, a writer, an entrepreneur, a solopreneur, or a journalist? Jesus says the tiny mustard seed was planted in the man’s own garden. Luke 13:18-19 Then he said, “How can I picture God’s kingdom for you? What kind of story can I use? It’s like an acorn that a man plants in his front yard. It grows into a huge oak tree with thick branches, and eagles build nests in it.” (MSG, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

The Plot

John 11:25-26 “Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”

We are more than halfway through our study of the Book of John. God’s Words by itself is life and it is so beautiful to see how Jesus responds to things. God’s Word is so refreshing, and I am confident that even as our minds are being renewed, our lives are being transformed. Amen! We are in an era where Read the rest of this entry

W-I-N-N-E-R!

Prov. 16:3 (LB) Commit your work to the Lord, then it will succeed.”

 

It is so important that we understand that work is not a curse. Work is a blessing; it is a blessing from God and God wants us to thrive and win at work. So, over the next few days, we will be learning how to win at work. Read the rest of this entry

From Me To You

Pr.22:7 “Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.”

 

I beseech you with the Word of God – do not borrow! My wife and I have this principle in life; we agreed on it upfront and it is based on the Word of God. God’s Word says in Ps. 84:11 For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.” Read the rest of this entry
