Nothing Except

John 3:27 “John replied, “A man can receive nothing [he can claim nothing at all] unless it has been granted to him from heaven [for there is no other source than the sovereign will of God].” (AMP, emphasis added).

A man [born again or not] can receive nothing, except it is given to him from above. Yesterday we looked at the first two implications of this statement. The first implication is, Look To God And God Alone As Your Source. Read the rest of this entry

For Not On

Philip.1:21-22 “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ…” (emphasis added)

We must not confuse a full life with a meaningful life. Full does not necessarily translate to being fulfilled. It is possible to be full and not be fulfilled. We often try to fill our lives with sports, or watching television, or with social media, or with partying. Read the rest of this entry

Insist On It!

John 14:13-14 “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”

 

Can you stand to be blessed? Many of us are afraid to step into what God has for us. Caleb said, Bring-It-On! Bring on the promises of God. Can you stand the backbiting and the wave of jealousy? Josh.14:12 “So give me the hill country that the Lord promised me…” (emphasis added). Caleb stood and demanded that God’s promise to him be fulfilled. You need to stand and demand that God’s promise to you be fulfilled. In Joshua 14, we see that every other tribe of Israel got their portion of land through lot [divine lot]. But Caleb demanded for his own and this is a big deal – huge! What Caleb did is a big deal and I will explain. Read the rest of this entry

Pursue Him

2 Cor.3:17 “For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Job 22:28 (KJV) Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. 29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.” Read the rest of this entry

Turn From Sin!

Luke 5:8 “When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m too much of a sinner to be around you” [with emphasis]

As with a lot of things in God, kneeling down is deeply significant and symbolic. In God’s Presence, the first reason why we kneel is in pursuit and the second reason is we kneel in Repentance. The yoke and weight of sin can be really heavy. But when we kneel in repentance, it’s sorted out.
