BEING LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

With so much bad stuff going on in the world today, it is more important than ever before that we be led by the Holy Spirit of God.  The Apostle Paul wrote a lot about that, and we need to pay attention, because there is another spirit out there leading people, and it is NOT the Holy Spirit.

IT IS FINISHED

 

So often when people need healing, they get the mistaken idea that it is something that they need to talk God into doing for them.  And some even try to “bargain” with God, that if He heals them, they will do such-and-such to give Him glory. And when nothing happens, then of course the “religious” people will tell them, “Maybe it isn’t God’s will to heal you…”  or perhaps, “You must have sin in your life, therefore God cannot (or will not) heal you.”  I tell you, there is no end of reasons people get talked out of their healing.  And NONE of them are aligned with the Word of God.

A FRESH START

 

A lot of people make a big deal out of the New Year, saying it’s a chance to make a fresh start, and fix those bad habits that have hung on so long, or fix a broken relationship, or start some other good thing.  And yes, that’s as good as any time to do so, but what they don’t realize is, every breath you take is a chance to make a fresh start.  You don’t have to wait till New Year to do it.

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

 

On December 25th, much of the world celebrates Christmas as the birth date of Christ Jesus of Nazareth.  Now, this is a tradition, but not anchored accurately in facts.  The Bible gives the account on the birth of Christ on this wise:

THE HIGH CALLING OF CHRIST

 

Sometimes it is necessary to remind oneself that salvation is not a matter of religious observance of rituals or laws, or self-righteous denial of foods or drink, but it is ONLY the result of what Christ Jesus did on the cross. Continue Reading »

WATCH YOUR WORDS

 

Whether you believe it or not, our world is framed by words.  It makes no difference whether you believe that or not, that’s just the way it is.  If you don’t happen to believe in gravity, it doesn’t care, it applies whether you believe in it or not.  If you happen to be one that doesn’t believe in gravity, do this: hold a bowling ball above your bare foot and let go of the ball.  If there is no such thing as gravity, then nothing will happen.  But if there IS, you’re going to have a very sore foot, whether you believe in gravity or not.

A SOFT ANSWER

 

Proverbs is a book I often teach from, and today Proverbs 15:1 comes to mind, and it should be an easy one to memorize, for it will come in handy many times in your life.  It says, A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.  Continue Reading »

BE MERCIFUL

 

God is merciful, and if we want to please Him, then we must be too.  And I guarantee you that there are enough “jerks” sprinkled among us, that being merciful isn’t always easy to do.  Yet I think of how we treat the LORD many times, and I’m amazed He hasn’t made crispy critters out of most of us.  God nearly destroyed all of mankind back in the flood, and only Noah and his family were spared.  Here we are thousands of years later, and I’m wondering how God can put up with us even another day.  It isn’t going to be pretty when He decides to deal with mankind’s evil.

OVERCOMING FEAR

Today, when asking the LORD what to write,  the subject of “fear” came up.  Fear, you know, when you read something or hear something or see something that makes your stomach turn over and you start to shake all over, and that hot feeling comes all over you…yes, THAT fear.  We’ve all been there, and it isn’t a nice feeling, and God doesn’t want us to experience it ever again.

BE NOT SHAKEN

Many people I talk to are really worried about how things are going in the world. Lots of changes in our lives have taken place over the past year, changes in government, people trying to take our freedom from us, with fear mongers spreading lies and fear. With Covid making people sick with some dying, our children being forced to stay home from school, people losing jobs, businesses closing, things have looked pretty dismal. And we are just now a year and a half later starting to come out of it, but things are no where near back to “normal”. Many tell us things will never be back as they were before.
