Live Humbly – Detect Divinity (Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4)

Live Humbly – Detect Divinity (Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4)

Jesus said, “Don’t bicker among yourselves over me. You’re not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. He draws people to me—that’s the only way you’ll ever come. Only then do I do my work, putting people together, setting them on their feet, ready for the End. This is what the prophets meant when they wrote, ‘And then they will all be personally taught by God.’ Anyone who has spent any time at all listening to…

Live Wisely – Pray About Everything (Quest for God’s Will, part 3/4)

Live Wisely – Pray About Everything (Quest for God’s Will, part 3/4)

As we learn to live in God’s will it is important to learn to let go of our worries and let God transform our lives as he pleases. That might sound scary but it really works. We can either worry or pray. There is not room for both of them in a Christian. This is easier said than done but praying without ceasing is one of the most important survival skills for Christians. If you have a lot on your…

Live Well – From the Shadows to the Substance (Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4)

Live Well – From the Shadows to the Substance (Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4)

In essence, following God, being a disciple of Jesus Christ & living in the Holy Spirit is what leads us to find God’s will. It’s not more complicated than that and at the same time it is very confusing. It takes time to learn to live in God’s grace. It takes trust to wait on God’s timing. But there is not some mystical formula we need to figure out. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to…

Looking For God’s Will?- Steep Yourself in God-Reality (Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4)

Looking For God’s Will?- Steep Yourself in God-Reality (Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4)

Jesus is calling you and me to be his followers:“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? (Luke 9:23-26, MSG) Jesus has…

Revelation

Revelation

It’s Melodic Monday! Today’s song is Revelation by Third Day. Lyrics are written by Mac Powell:My life,Has led me down the road that’s so uncertainAnd now I am left alone and I am broken,Trying to find my way,Trying to find the faith that’s goneThis time,I know that you are holding all the answersI’m tired of losing hope and taking chances,On roads that never seem,To be the ones that bring me home Give me a revelation,Show me what to doCause I’ve…

Keep Company With GOD – Psalm 37

Keep Company With GOD – Psalm 37

1-2 Don’t bother your head with braggarts or wish you could succeed like the wicked. In no time they’ll shrivel like grass clippings and wilt like cut flowers in the sun. 3-4 Get insurance with God and do a good deed, settle down and stick to your last. Keep company with God, get in on the best. 5-6 Open up before God, keep nothing back; he’ll do whatever needs to be done: He’ll validate your life in the clear light…

Volcanic Ash: Sinners Wanted

Volcanic Ash: Sinners Wanted

The only requirement for becoming a Christian is to be a sinner! What? Yes, only sinners need a savior. So, a sign at a church could be “Sinners wanted, Inquire within”. Basically, all of us, whether insiders or outsiders, start out in identical conditions, which is to say that we all start out as sinners. Scripture leaves no doubt about it: There’s nobody living right, not even one, nobody who knows the score, nobody alert for God. They’ve all taken…

An Ability to Marshal & Direct Our Energies Wisely

An Ability to Marshal & Direct Our Energies Wisely

Self-control has always been the spiritual fruit that has intimated me. Somehow it has felt like a court order, a requirement that I could never meet. Then I read about the nine spiritual fruits in the Message and I had a revelation that has changed my approach to self-control, the ninth spiritual fruit found in Galatians 5:22-24. But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an…

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

It’s Melodic Monday and today’s song is Who Am I? by Casting Crowns. The song was written by Mark Hall. This song reminds me of God’s sovereignty: God is holy, God is almighty! Yet, he loves us! He wants to know us intimately, he wants to have a personal relationship with us! Not because what we are or what we have done but because of God! When we respond with ‘yes’ to God’s invitation we’ll be awestruck how much God…
