Replace?  Repair?  Renew?  The possessions that we have at some point cause us to have to answer one of these questions.  Replacement gets rid of the old.  Repairing fixes the old.  Renewing means that all the things in the item work but just need to be maintenance.  God was confronted with making these choices in regards to mankind.  He considered replacing us but sent a flood instead.  He considered repairing us but knew we would keep tinkering with His work.  So, He decided that the equipment that He gave us was of the highest quality and He gave us an operators manual to make sure that we maintenance it according to His Specifications.  The Bible is that operator’s manual and it declares that we can be transformed to something better than we have been by getting our mind renewed.  God has given us the capacity to replace our old, carnal nature with a new spiritual one.  We can repair broken relationships with the power of forgiveness.   We fulfill His desires for us by learning and doing His Will.

Who Will You Trust

Who Will You Trust
/

The choice we make daily will determine whether or not we will find real fulfillment.  This choice is between whether we will do what we want to do or if we do what God has intended for us to do.  It is          possible to do work for God and be fulfilled.  Fulfillment is something that is the result of completing a task that has been chosen, assigned or stumbled upon.  The Christian experiences fulfillment by accomplishing what God’s Will is for us as God supplies our every need.  The beauty in serving God is that He is true to His Word and will do what He has said.  Let our fulfillment be tied up in the word of the one who is more likely to keep their word.  The choice comes down to will we have more trust in yourself or willour trust be in God?  Our fulfillment will reflect the choice that we make.

Sometimes we find ourselves looking for items that we were certain were in a particular place, but we cannot seem to find them.  We turn everything upside down.  We leave a wake of havoc and destruction in our path trying to find them.  Then, just when we have given up on any hope of being able to find it, it suddenly appears and we experience joy, peace, and a sense of accomplishment.  Well, the peace and joy that we seek is near to us, but just like the search for that lost item, we are turning our lives upside down and leaving a path of destruction in our wake looking for them in all the wrong places.  Our peace and joy come from having a relationship with God.  As a result of that relationship, He fills us completely with the peace and joy that we will need for every situation.  This is God’s promise to us, so we should take Him up on it.

Praise Aforethought

Praise Aforethought
/

“Malice Aforethought” is a term that is used to represent that there was premeditation in one’s actions.  In other words, it is a fancy way of saying that before an action was taken it was thought about.  This term is frequently used in the legal arena in regards to whether an act was intentional or accidental.  However, there is ample opportunity to consider this in our walk of faith.  The reason that we exist, to bring glory to God, has not changed.  Glorifying Him requires that we have some forethought.  We should be intentional about    establishing a relationship with God.  We should be intentional about telling others about Him and the difference that He has made in our lives.  We should be intentional about how we serve Him.  Our service to Him would be more proactive and rewarding if we were more intentional about it.  Faith declares that we act as if it were already so, rather than acting after it is already done.  Put some Praise Aforethought into the ministry opportunity that God has laid in front.

He Is There When We Need Him

He Is There When We Need Him
/

The Lord hears the voice of His people.  Standing up for your Christian beliefs does not fit in with what the masses want to do, but it does not mean that His people should just give in to those who do not believe in Him.  God’s immutable nature does not change with the tide of human emotion or popularity.  The reassuring aspect of that is that He has declared to never forsake his people even when the winds of public opinion are blowing strongly against what His Word says.  When we needed a deliverer, He showed up.  When we needed food, He showed up.  When we needed comfort, He showed up.  When we needed a savior, He showed up.  God is still showing up for His people, so we must continue to stand on His Promises and be willing to endure the hardening that makes us good soldiers in His Army because there are still souls left to be saved.

Gifts For His Glory

Gifts For His Glory
/

Each person has been given their own set of gifts, talents, and abilities.  It does not mean that everyone has the same ones or an equal amount.  God has a reason for each person to operate on the level of life that they are at.  Some will stay at the level that they started, some will rise to a higher level and some will go down a level.  No matter if there is an increase or a decrease, there is an opportunity to bring   glory to God by our response to our circumstance.  Paul said it best when he declared that whether he is abased or abounding he has learned to be content no matter what state he is in.  Being content still requires that we strive to do our best because God is faithful to keep His promises toward us when we trust and obey Him.

God Has A Plan For Mothers

God Has A Plan For Mothers
/

God has a plan for every one of His people.  When we consider the    value of a mother. There are many hats that she wears.  A mother is a source of stability when the winds of life are blowing hard upon a child.  A mother is a healer and a comforter when the storms have left us battered and bruised.  A mother is a protector who tries to shield us from the pains of life.  A mother is a go-to person for the innermost thoughts that we think and an encourager for the dreams that we have.  A mother means so much to so many people that the only way we can truly appreciate the wonderful gift that she is from God is to say, “THANK YOU!!”  with all the love that we have to show her.

Experience God’s Plan

Experience God's Plan

 Let’s make it our personal mission to stop wasting God’s time.  Far too many times people attend worship services out of obligation rather than taking advantage of the wonderful opportunity that has been laid before us to honor God.  When we pray, we can be more selfless by    focusing on how great He Is, and seek out what direction He has for us.  When we serve, we can be imitators of God by giving to Him the same level of excellence that He has shown to us.  Our character and reputation should be the same when we are at church as it is when we are out in the public.   We can be more faithful to Him by not robbing Him of our time, talents, and treasure.  Those who worship God can impact the world for His glory by expressing joyful and real praise rather than pretending for the sake of others.  When we put all of these things together, we will experience what it is to fulfill the plan He has for us and be more than conquerors!

When We Know Him, He Will Listen

 It would be unusual to expect a tree surgeon to be assigned to remove your appendix.  It would be strange to watch a carpenter try to make your wedding cake.  It is just as unproductive as expecting God to    answer the prayer of someone who does not believe in Him.  Knowing God is necessary for Him to repair your situation.  The only prayer that God will hear from an unbeliever is the one when they repent for being an unbeliever.  Unbelievers would laugh and scoff at God for fixing their problems.  When we were not saved, many of us thought that we could not be saved or even have a chance to get to know God.  But one day He changed us, and we now have direct access to Him through His Son.  Since He is the Author and Finisher of our faith, He knows precisely what to do for us.  Now, we can rejoice because we know God better than we knew Him before.  Better still, is knowing that when we talk to Him, He will listen.

Trust His Plan

Trust His Plan
/

There is a plan for our life that God is working.  Even though there may be times that we cannot see clearly the direction and the destination, there is still a plan at work.  Accomplishing the objectives of a plan requires that we commit ourselves to them, then our actions will be in support of the plan and goal.  In order to commit to something or someone we must have a level of trust that takes us beyond what we once did.  God has declared that His plan is to prosper us and do us no harm, therefore, if we want to have the blessing He has awaiting us, we must trust Him!  Our trust is expressed in how much we obey what His Word declares.  By trying it, we will discover that we can do it.
