The Pursuit of Wisdom Results In Knowing God

Proverbs 2: 1-15 says: 
My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,  turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.  For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Trust and Obey

As a small child, sitting with my grandmother in church, I remember so vividly her crying every time they sang the old song “Trust and Obey”. I would look up at her and put my small hand into her hand as a way to comfort her I thought. But, after service, she would explain to me that the only way to really serve the Lord was to put our total trust in Him and whatever He told us to do, we should do it. Obey His Word and trust in His unfailing care and love for us.

You are Called to Soar

We are empowered by the breath of God to rise on winds of faith soaring about life’s storms. We are eagles who use adversity to triumph as God’s Spirit updrafts us to the calming presence of His Son.
 
Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”.

Lead & Encourage

All of us have latent leadership abilities. We need leaders around us who are able to mentor us and bring out what is inside so that we are not following when we should be leading. If you’re in a line waiting for a particular ride, you’re standing in the line – you’re called to follow that.  Most of life, however, is not standing in line – it’s taking charge. We lead as Jesus did: as servants, not as pompous, self-centered leaders.

I’m believing for hundreds of leaders to come forth in our church who will mentor thousands of people until we have a church full of leaders who can go into our world, to encounter the leadership of evil that is penetrating our youth.

There is Hope

Though life may seem hopeless, you wake as dark as midnight and sorrow overflows you like a rogue wave. Remember there is one who is the fountain head of hope, the light that penetrates the darkest night and is the commander of the waves of life that speaks peace be still.
 
That one is, Jesus the God who became man that He may know what we experience and is touched by our dilemmas. He does not just commiserates, but knows intimately what we experience.

When You Do Not Understand, Trust

Proverbs 3:5-7 (MSG) Says, “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your bones will vibrate with life!”
Confusion comes from lack of knowledge and the inability to interpret knowledge

Are we seeking God for US or For HIM?

One of the misconceptions of the scripture is that the Lord Knows where I am. If He wants to Bless me He knows where to Find me. 

Throughout the Word, we find words like these;

Find Me; Proverbs 8:17 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.”

Look for Me; Job 11:7 “Can you find out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limit of the Almighty?”

Standing Alone

We have all been created by God with an innate desire to connect with Him and to be part of something larger than ourselves. Often, this Holy yearning leads us to try and acquire that sense of belonging by fitting in with others and by seeking approval. These are substitutes and barriers to true belonging. Often, we search for acceptance and approval by friends and family rather than seeking His Face and walk according to His commands.

Move of God

During our last Sunday service , we witnessed a great move of God at the Alter.

We all need a spiritual reviving! An ongoing, shaking by the Holy Spirit in the depths of our souls. We all need the Holy Spirit to touch us in such a way that our hunger for God soars and everything else dies.  We all need a refreshing so there is newness in our relationship with Christ.

Faith in Christ

As soon as we open our hearts to Jesus we realize that faith becomes everything. Faith in Jesus to forgive us of our sins, give us a new life, and to sustain us each day.
 
Living this life of faith is tricky. We stare at a mountain of circumstances and impossibilities and our faith is strong. It seems that at any moment our faith surges. Meanwhile, at a different hour in the day our faith can be completely absent.
