THE EDGE OF FORGIVENESS

“The Edge of Forgiveness” is kind of an odd topic, but that’s what the LORD gave me to write about today.  Is it possible to be on the “EDGE” of forgiveness?  Sure, and that’s a dangerous place to be, just like it’s dangerous to stand close to the edge of a cliff. Continue Reading »

ONCE UPON A TIME

Each week I ask the LORD what He wants me to write to the people. He seldom tells me in advance, it’s like I sit down and take dictation, for it comes as fast as I can write.  Well, today I asked Him what to write, He said “ONCE UPON A TIME….”  Ok, that tells me a whole lot….but hang on, here we go.

WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE?

In John chapter five we can read about a man who was an invalid for thirty eight years. Now thirty eight years is a very long time to be suffering.  Over the years I’ve met many people who have been suffering from various infirmities, and there is one thing common among them: they all want to be well.  Now there are some who hold to the belief that they are suffering because God has given them a thorn in the flesh like the Apostle Paul dealt with.  Some actually believe they are sick because it gives glory to God, yet it is those who are constantly running to the doctor trying to get will.  But it seems rather strange to me that if sickness gives glory to God, why did the Lord Jesus go about HEALING the sick?  That would be a good one to explore today.

HEART OF GOLD, BURDEN OF LEAD

Most of us know someone who would give the shirt off their back to help someone in need, who is always quick to help and lend a hand. You might describe them as having a heart of gold.  In fact, you might even be one of them. They are usually quick to help someone bear their burdens, a very selfless person who puts the needs of others before their own needs.  Does that sound like anyone you know?  But what about their own burdens; are they carrying around a burden of lead while they help others?  That is often the case.

HOW TO SUCCEED IN LIFE

No matter where you were born, or when, there’s just something inside you that wants to succeed.   Whether you realize it or not, even your basic instinct to survive tells you that you weren’t created to fail.  A person can face seemingly impossible circumstances, and yet, in the vast majority of times, they will survive, somehow, someway.  Many count that up to “luck”, but it isn’t luck at all; it’s how you were created, purposely by God.

WHEN WILL YOU BE HEALED?

The Bible tells us Christ Jesus HAS already healed us by His stripes, HAS done everything that He is ever going to do about healing and salvation, and that there is nothing lacking in His completed work whatsoever.  That leaves the rest of it up to us to RECEIVE for ourselves what He has done.  I’m sure you’ve heard all that before and it isn’t giving you much comfort at this point. God is apparently NOT moved by our need, but rather by our taking His word for it that it is DONE.  I don’t see everyone I’ve prayed for being healed, though it is many, yet it bothers me when someone does not receive the manifestation of their healing.  There are some ministries who say 100% of those they pray for are healed, yet some of the people who have gone to them end up coming to me.  And some of them still do not receive healing.  Is it a problem on God’s end?  I think not, but some people are so hurt and broken, they have a great deal of problem believing even God himself.

INVEST WISELY

I enjoy fixing and making things, and one day one of my wrenches turned up missing.  Well, I have several, but nobody likes to lose something, so I went to looking for it.  And it became my focus to find that wrench.  Now keep in mind I have several, so it wasn’t like losing it would be a major catastrophe in my life. But the more I looked, the more important finding that wrench became to me.  After a couple hours of diligent searching, you would have thought it was made of the purest gold and covered with the finest diamonds. And I was going to find that wrench, even if it meant moving everything out of my garage one piece at a time. Continue Reading »

REMEMBER THE PROMISES

Many Christians are all fired up when they hear about the promises God made throughout the Bible, but as soon as trials arise in their lives, they are quick to forget all about the promises, and focus on the trial instead.  They forget one comment the Lord Jesus made: Continue Reading »

WHAT’S ON GOD’S MIND?

The other morning as I was waking up, the LORD dropped something into my spirit that we all need to hear. This is what I heard: “When someone sins against another, the offended one thinks of how they can get even.  When someone sins against Me, I’m looking for a way to forgive and reconcile them to Me.” Think about that for a moment, and you will see how vastly God’s nature is higher than man’s.  If everyone thought like that, there would be no war.

HOW DO YOU KNOW?

People have many ideas about how to determine if someone is really a follower of Christ Jesus. And of course, if you happen to be a minister, the bar is set higher.  Some make that determination based on how big a church a pastor might have, or how many followers they have on Facebook, or how many times they’ve been on TV. Others might say, Wow, they’re really anointed; they have a jet (or more than one)!  Another might base their opinion on how many books they have published, or how many letters follow their name.  But does any of that matter to God?
