BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL

I’d like to show you how prayer, praise, and blessings are all connected. We all like blessings, right? Let’s take time to explore the very nature of God. Most of us have heard the fire and brimstone sermons about the judgment of God, right? Unfortunately, I heard about that side of God many years before I heard about His loving nature. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that nobody wants to pray to an angry God who they think is out to make everyone a crispy critter. Needless to say, that wouldn’t make anyone want to praise Him, either, unless it was simply out of fear of being sent to hell. And yet, that is the god I was first introduced to.

SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND

Christ Jesus said in Matthew 7:7-8, 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

WHY WON’T GOD HEAL ME?

“Why won’t God heal me?” is probably the question I hear the most. It may surprise you to know that God wants you healed even more than YOU want to be healed. So what’s the holdup? Well, it sure isn’t God. Whenever there’s a problem between us and God, the problem is always on our end.

SPEAK CAREFULLY

It is written in Isaiah 55:11, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” I’m often asked, “OK then, when someone prays or speaks the promises of God, and they don’t see it happen, what’s with that?”  So that’s our subject today. Go grab a cup of coffee and let’s explore this.

THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME

Last night after sunset a group of us observed Passover and ate a Passover meal and later took communion. We do this to remind ourselves of our covenant with God. Some say, “I’m not going back under the law, I’m under grace.” Well, I’m under grace, too, but I find it helpful to remind myself why I’m under grace, and for what.

THE WAY IS NARROW

So many people believe when they die they will go to heaven, that Jesus just threw open the gates to heaven and everyone, everywhere will be invited in. Sadly, the Bible doesn’t bear that out. In fact, Jesus said FEW would be saved. Now if the stakes are THAT high, then it would seem to me that we should be spending our time fervently seeking God. Well, the stakes indeed ARE that high, are YOU willing to pay the price of being His disciple?

WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?

Without a doubt, all of us face trials at one time or another, and it makes no difference if you are a Christian or not. The devil is an “equal opportunity destroyer” who would just as soon destroy you as much as me, it makes him no difference. But it DOES make a difference to him when he runs into someone who has faith and isn’t afraid to use it.

OFFENSE STOPS THE BLESSING

Having been in the ministry for over 25 years now, I’ve learned a thing or two along the way. And one is, offense stops the blessings of God. I’ve been to churches where they do their victory dances over the devil, make their declarations, taking the nations for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But something is missing. Their lives are really no different than people who don’t know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. And there’s something terribly wrong with that situation.

A CAN OF WORMS

I’ve been known at times to open a can of worms. Today I will attempt to do exactly that. During this past week I’ve had some conversations concerning law and grace, which seem to go as well together as oil and water. Are we under the law, or are we under grace? Are we still to keep any of the Old Testament, or are we only under the New? Let’s do some exploring today, and I think you’ll find it to be interesting. Maybe you’ve thought about these things, maybe not.

THE SERVANT OF THE LORD

When looking at the state of the “CHURCH” at large, I see a dissimilarity between Christ Jesus and the Church. I see a “Church” comprised of “believers” who are more prone to desire God to serve them, than they are to serve God. For proof of that, I ask you to listen to the prayers you hear others make, and your own prayers as well. Are those prayers filled with, “LORD, I need…., please give me…., LORD, please do this for me….”? If so, then those are not “I’m serving God” prayers, but rather “God, serve ME” prayers.
