Rope Holding

So during the night, some of the other believers lowered him in a large basket through an opening in the city wall. Acts 9:25

There is NO small decision.

Making Small BIG.

I was reading C.S. Lewis today and was profoundly challenged by this thought…

c-s-lewis-saturday-evening-post“The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of.”

 

Stay alert, my friends, God is working NOW in order to blow your mind LATER … so, wherever you are – BE ALL THERE! Serve, love, sacrifice, obey, pray, listen, give and die to self… a life-altering miracle has already begun – be sure you’re REAL when it is ready to shout!

The Search

The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9a

Fact: God wants to bless you. HE DOES! 

searchingHowever, God cannot and will not bless half-hearted, self-centered, attempts to gain His blessings. He knows us. He knows our hearts. So often we want God to move on our behalf without us changing anything. We treat Him as if He owes us. This couldn’t be more wrong.

This little verse speaks clearly to what is required for blessing: “hearts fully committed to Him” — this means that we must desire and endeavor to: KNOW and DO His will in ALL things.

1. To KNOW His will requires Bible Study, prayer and the continual guidance of the Holy Spirit.

2. To DO His will in ALL things will require a servant’s heart, single-focus to please God not man and courage.

Sound too hard?? Well, God wants to help you do it!

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Philippians 2:13

Yes, God helps us please Him because He loves to bless us! SO humbling!

Let’s be found by the SEARCH of God!

We can NEVER out-bless God!

Free the City

I will keep a protective eye on the godly, so they may dwell with me in safety. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me. 7 I will not allow deceivers to serve me, and liars will not be allowed to enter my presence. 8 My daily task will be to ferret out criminals and free the city of the LORD from their grip. Psalm 101:6-8

Dinner is ServedWho serves you?

Yes, I know, this is a tough thing to grasp – since “we” are all so humble & lowly.  That is, we only serve others…  (cough, cough)!

Ok, so I’m not talking about possessing slaves/servants but, rather, considering who – or, perhaps, what – serves you. Who provides your entertainment? Satisfaction? Enjoyment? Happiness? Life?

Is it the secular? Popular? Affluent? Or even liars?? Or, is it the godly? Would the merchants at the mall, or your browser on the web, or the iTunes in your mobile device; ALL agree?
