The Power Of A Pray-er

August 22, 2014

A Call To Prayer.

When we look at the world around us, we see so many things that are wrong. There is pain, sorrow, suffering and injustice at every hand.

We may wrestle with a concern over activism. The best direction to take regarding social, religious or political situations is not always clear to us. But I believe there is one thing we can and should be consistently doing.

Yes, that one thing is praying. We need to be lifting each other up in prayer on a local, national and global scale.

But as we lift one another up, we need to acknowledge that there are entities in place responsible for the problems we face. I believe we not only have the ability, but the responsibility to address those entities in prayer.

Just Run!

Running

I was musing over some events I had endured during military service, and there is one thing most of us did that we’ll never forget … the dreaded Gas Chamber.

 

The exercise is simple. Dress in your full chemical protection suit and line up single file in a small building. When it comes your turn, you simply take off your gas mask and tell the official your name, rank and serial number. Then you can leave.

Zerubbabel is a very unique person in the Bible. He was the appointed ruler of Judah under Cyrus during Israel’s return from Babylon. And that may be nice on the surface, the full story is awesome!

Revival?

July 18, 2014


candle under a bushel

A friend asked, “Are you trying to start a revival?”  I said, “No, I don’t even like the word “revival”

But I do understand the underlying sentiment. There are times when we may have fallen behind. And other times when we’ve just grown cold-hearted, flat-footed or dull-minded. The first fire has faded and there’s no joy, no power and no fruit.

The Power Of A Thankful Heart

Gratitude

One of the most pressing issues in our modern world is energy. We need it for our homes, industry and transportation. We have become extremely energy dependent and without it, our industrialized lifestyle will grind to a halt.

So every discovery of new energy sources and methods of conservation has potential for great value to us. And who wouldn’t like to have a Beverly Hillbillies Jedd Clampett moment, to accidentally find oil and strike it rich?

Down For The Count?

July 16, 2014


KO

You may have lost the fight. You may feel like you’re on the floor bleeding. You may have taken the ‘Ten Count’ and everyone else has walked away. The lights are out and the arena stands empty … all you can hear is your own labored breathing.

Just remember …

The righteous man may fall sevenfold, but he shall rise up again!

 

Rise Up And Be Healed II

Facelifted from a good friend at Facebook …

This is so good!
The Rise and Shine Initiative recently posted something very good:

“We may say, ‘Heal me so I can rise up.’
But many examples of healing follow the command to, ‘Rise up and be healed’.”

Something lit up inside of me. So often, I’ve watched saints of the King, heroes, stand between the dragon and his victim, defending the fallen one, even at great cost to themselves. I stand in awe of them. Father watches from his throne on the sea of glass, boasting to the angels about their prowess, their courage, their boldness! He’s so proud of them!

UNOFFENDABLE

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezek. 36:26).

God has a new heart for us that cannot be offended — an “unoffendable” heart. Beloved, possessing an unoffendable heart is not an option or a luxury; it is not a little thing. An offended heart is in danger of becoming a “heart of stone.”
