Supernatural Provision

Matt.17:27 “However, we don’t want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”

Have you ever experienced supernatural provision? Yes, God wants us to work, to invest, and God wants us to save. We have done several teachings on God’s heart for work and for our finances – earn some, save some, invest some, spend less, no loss, give more, and faith it. Read the rest of this entry

Receive & Practice

Philip.4:9 “Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.” (AMPC)

John 1:29The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (NRSV, emphasis added). The Lamb of God that takes away, that cleanses the sins of the world. Cleansing is part of the package delivered to us by Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Appetizer

2 Tim. 2:15 “Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.”

John is one of the four Books in the New Testament [Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John] called the Gospels of the Lord Jesus Christ. The first three [Matthew, Mark, and Luke] are known as the synoptic Gospels because they are similar in reference. Read the rest of this entry

Word Probe

2 Tim.2:15 “Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.”

We are going into a study of the Book of John. Let me tell you upfront, we are going to be drinking from a water hydrant [gushing streams] so be prepared. The question is how hungry are you and what can you take in? My prayer is that you will take all in, in Jesus Name [say Amen]. Read the rest of this entry

Word!

Josh.1:8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

You and I need to read, study, memorize, meditate on and speak the Word of God. We need to be more deliberate about putting God’s Word in the hearts and mouths of our children. The mind of a child is like a sponge, it Read the rest of this entry

Engrafted

1Pet.1:23 “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God” [with emphasis]

 

Yesterday, we talked about the two types of truth abusers, which are the naïve and the brutal truth abusers. You have to know which one you are tilted towards. I am tilted just a little bit to the brutal.

To Action

Dan.9:2 “During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the Lord, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet” [with emphasis]

 

Our scripture reference today shows us that Daniel did not have the answers. But Daniel learned from reading Books – the Word of the Lord in the Book of Jeremiah. Bottom line, Daniel was really smart but he still had to read. Read the rest of this entry

No Limit!

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction” Prov.1:7 [NKJV]

 

Did the person that came first in your class have two heads? Are you familiar with this statement? A lot of us heard it repeatedly when we were growing up, especially relating to academic performance. The statement usually is accompanied with some strokes of the cane. Some people may say that it is a little bit extreme. Well, I do not think so because it drilled into me that no one is better than me. You are as good as you want to be. Where you are today is where you want to be. It is a choice you have made. But the question is, do you want to remain there or will you Read the rest of this entry

Get Better

“A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel” Prov.1:5 [NKJV]

 

Society used to be divided between those who have and those who do not have. But I tell you the truth, going forward, society is going to be divided by those who know and those who do not know. Knowledge is going to be the key decider. Your life only gets better when you get better. You cannot get better if you do not even know where you stand. Everybody wants his or her life to get better but your life can only get better when you get better.

Line Upon Line

 

“He tells us everything over and over— one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!” Isa.28:10

 

“He tells us everything over and over— one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!” If God, the Maker of the heavens and the earth takes time out to tell you everything over and over, don’t you think you need to pay attention to what He is saying? Little beginnings can be equated to the place of waiting perhaps for the next big thing or for the doors to open unto you. God has placed you close to married people so that He can birth a desire Read the rest of this entry
