SEEK PEACE

When was the last time that someone said something to you that rubbed you the wrong way, and you just let it go? It seems to be against our nature to overlook wrongs done to us. We can look around and see all the discontent and rioting going on and know for certain that people just do not have a forgiving attitude. And yet, forgiveness is a condition of salvation, did you know that?

WHAT WILL WE BE?

We all know that we as “born again” Christians haven’t “arrived” yet, but as long as we live in this life, we are a “work in progress”. Most of us will admit that God has a lot of work still to do in us, at least I know He does in me. And while I’m not where I want to be, I can surely see that I’m not where I was a year ago, or five years ago, or twenty years ago, but still growing. I wish that process of growing in the LORD worked faster, but it isn’t God that is causing the delay, it’s always me. And I’m so thankful for His patience and grace.

WILL I FIND FAITH ON EARTH?

Today I’d like to draw attention to something Jesus spoke in Luke 18:1-8, which seems to many to be contradictory in its nature:
1  And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Continue Reading »

REMINDERS ARE GOOD!

As we each go through our daily lives, some of those days are good, and some are NOT so good.  It serves us well to be reminded of one simple truth in Psalm 100:5:
Psa 100:5  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Of course, when things are going good, we are happy and praising God, but how about when things are NOT going good, are we remembering that God never changes, regardless of our circumstances?  Are we still praising Him, even when it seems He went on vacation and left no forwarding address?

STAY THE COURSE

Time and time again I hear from people, “I’m going through _______(you fill in the blank), and I just haven’t seen the victory yet.  How long do I have to keep confessing God’s Word over the situation?”  My reply is always the same: what does the Bible say? Until you overcome. Continue Reading »
