As we face our Goliaths
Published
We are all familiar with the story of David and Goliath, from 1 Samuel 17, perhaps too familiar for we still recall the story as a Sunday school lesson of our hero David. This blog has been given to me by the Living Lord as a message to all those...

Hebrews 4:16 - Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (21st Century King James Version) O the majesty and brilliance of God that we have access into the...
The overwhelming stupendous love of God
Published
For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 2 Cor. 5 Paul was so passionate for the gospel that many accused him of being out of his mind, for he was obsessed with the love of God. This...

Can you come down and walk with me?
Published
As in the natural so in the spiritual, for we are not born to live on high mountain peaks, but the valleys tend to be more habitable. Those mountain peaks in our spiritual experience we cannot sustain for they will kill us spiritually, but if we could...
Keeping ourselves in the Love of God
Published
The statement that God is Love is so radical that only the God of the Bible could have revealed such a truth to us. This knowledge that God by his very nature is Love has not been perceived outside of the scriptures. That God is love is the kernel of...
Consider the Lilies.
Published
Consider the Lilies. Consider the Ravens. Consider the Ants. Have you noticed the things that God asks us to consider for these three have one thing in common? From a human standpoint these three things are not worth considering for they are of a...

How to bring a smile to Gods face
Published
I know that I am taking this verse out of context so forgive me as I wish to use these well known words as a spring board into my blog. We often see these words on funeral notices or they are spoken in eulogies. But I often wonder the reason why...
the anchor of our soul
Published
I recently read on Yahoo that a student was writing a paper on hope and was asking readers of the site for their definitions of hope. As God had pressed down on my spirit to blog on hope I continued to take more than a passing interest in their...
Praying in the Spirit.
Published
And pray in the Spiriton all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. Eph 6 We are exhorted to pray in the Spirit. This means simply that we pray from a position of strength, in that the power that raised Christ from the dead is available for...

Gods Preparation for His Wedding

God is opening his word and pouring rain upon those that are thirsty for he is crying, “Come those that are thirsty and I will give you waters to drink.” God is opening the minds of those who are humble and of a contrite heart. In these...
Living the High Life in Christ
Published
How many times have we read passages of scripture that go in one ear and out the other with no settlement in our mind? It is as if we are blind, yet we see but in reality we do not see. We read the words and either our minds are elsewhere or, God in...
To Grow unto Glory takes Initiative
Published
Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.' Benjamin Franklin What is true in the natural is also true in the spiritual. How do we measure up? God by a supernatural...
Daily Bible Verse: Micah 6:8

Micah 6:8 - He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and But can we reach these ideals? Can we honestly say that we can match these standards that God has set before us? Take a good...

Identification with Jesus.

Blow the trumpet, sound the alarm for the day of the Lord is closer than we dare to believe. The day of destruction and reckoning will catch many believers as a rabbit is caught in the search light, frozen, startled and confused. There are too many...
Sanctification fully exposed.

There are three mysteries mentioned in the scriptures. The triune God head; the two natures of Jesus and the mystery that I, a sinner can be made into the image of Jesus, by the great work of the atonement. Because of the cross Jesus has become to us,...
Lord teach me to Pray
Published
It seems strange to write a blog on prayer for all believers pray, do they not? Prayer and being a disciple go together like strawberries and cream, yet God has pressed upon my mind that this is to be the topic of this blog. I was directed towards the...

Before the third chapter of Geneses mankind was at One with God. He was a Whole person with his body soul and spirit in perfect harmony and in perfect sync with his Creator. There was a perfect flow between body, soul, spirit and God. This harmonious...
Levels of Redemption

This blog was given to me by my Lord and it has been a case of stepping out of the boat trusting that I do not mess up the blogs message that is being born in my heart. I wish to trace the layers of redemption that occur in a believers life from the...
