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!

July 18, 2014


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.

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!

 

The King Is still On The Throne

King-Jesus-On-The-Throne

The media exploded again today with more crazy news.

It did yesterday and it will again tomorrow.

 

The King is still on the throne and the Kingdom of God did not change.

Beware the haze and remain focused on Christ.

 

We can’t walk on water and watch the storm.

 

 

Plans For A Hope And A Future

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13

 

Rise Up And Be Healed II

July 16, 2014

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!

Our Perspective Is Affected By Our Position

July 16, 2014


dreamstimeOur own perspectives of life and the world around us are limited by what we can see. Circumstances have a way of forcing our vision to focus on the darkness that surrounds us.

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” Isaiah 57:15

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus Ephesians 2:4-6

The Son-light Keeps Our Hearts Warm

July 12, 2014

It seems the farther we stray from the experiential knowledge of the Resurrection of Christ, the colder our hearts become.

Remember, we have died, been buried and resurrected with Christ and raised up to walk in newness of life with Him!

Rise and Shine!
