Led By The Spirit

Posted in People on Mon, Dec 31 2007 - 08:54 AM

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. - Galatians 5:18. If we are led by the Spirit of God, we are not under the law.  This can be said another way.  If we are not being led by the Spirit of God, then we are striving to meet the conditions of the law.  The conditions that Jesus already fulfilled for us.  Instead we...

Full Rights

Posted in People on Sun, Dec 30 2007 - 09:16 AM

But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. - Galatians 4:4-5 (NIV). You know, I don’t think it gets any clearer than this.  Jesus was born under the law to redeem those under the law, which was you and me before we...

Experience Grace

Posted in People on Sat, Dec 29 2007 - 08:31 AM

You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. - Galatians 5:4 (NIV). When we try to justify ourselves by the law, even after we are saved, we alienate ourselves from Christ.  Why?  Because we are not focusing on what Jesus did for us.  Instead we are focusing on what it is...

The Focal Point

Posted in People on Fri, Dec 28 2007 - 08:51 AM

Think about Job for a moment.  He is a prime example of what most of us look like as New Covenant Believers. When we see Job in the first chapter of Job, verse five, he offers burnt offerings for his sons just in case they sinned. He was focused on the sins of him and his family.  He was under the Old Covenant.  Jesus hadn't yet died for...

Without Expectations

Posted in People on Thu, Dec 27 2007 - 08:48 AM

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. - Psalm 29:11 (NIV). Isn’t that wonderful to know that God gives us strength and blesses us with peace?  He gives strength and peace to us as presents without any expectation of us returning the gifts.  When a person gives a gift with no expectation of the...

Go Higher

Posted in People on Wed, Dec 26 2007 - 08:35 AM

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.  - Proverbs 23:7. As you think in your heart, so are you.  Stop and think about that for a brief moment.  Do you want to become what you have been thinking?  If the answer is no, then it is time to change your thoughts.  It is time to open your mind up to all (not just some, all) of the...

When We Fall...

Posted in People on Tue, Dec 25 2007 - 10:21 AM

for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity. - Proverbs 24:16 (NIV). Though the righteous man falls seven times, he rises again. Who are the righteous? We are. We became righteous, in right standing with God, the moment we accepted what Jesus did on the Cross for us. We became ...

From Possibility To Impossibility

Posted in People on Mon, Dec 24 2007 - 09:33 AM

For with God nothing shall be impossible. - Luke 1:37. Mary, being pregnant by the Holy Spirit, and Elisabeth, being pregnant after being barren for many years--those are impossibilities to us in our natural thinking. Fortunately, God doesn't think the same way we do. His thoughts are higher than ours, so with Him, nothing is impossible. We ...

Overflowing Flood

Posted in People on Sun, Dec 23 2007 - 09:10 AM

For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring; They will spring up among the grass Like willows by the watercourses.’  - Isaiah 44:3-4 (NKJV). I live in Phoenix, Arizona, so I know what dry ground is.  Even here, though, when we...

God Is God

Posted in People on Sat, Dec 22 2007 - 08:10 AM

“You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. - Nehemiah 9:6 (NLT). God is God.  He will not change into the devil.  He will not change into a mere human being.  He will not change His...

What God Means To Me

Posted in People on Fri, Dec 21 2007 - 09:40 AM

What does Psalm 23 mean to you? That the Lord is your Shepherd?  That He makes you to lie down in green pastures? For me, it means that the Lord is my Protector, my Comforter, my Leader.  That’s what a shepherd does.  He protects.  He comforts.  He leads. When a wolf comes after me, He goes after it.  He chases the wolf away. He makes...

Remain In Him

Posted in People on Thu, Dec 20 2007 - 08:00 AM

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. - John 15:7 (NIV). According to this Scripture, if we remain in God’s Word, if we let His Word be our ultimate authority, we can ask whatever we wish.  Why will it be given to us?  Because if God’s Word is in us, we will not ask for anything...

Answers Every One

Posted in People on Wed, Dec 19 2007 - 08:51 AM

Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. - Psalm 102:2 How many times have you felt that God had turned His face from you?  How many times have you felt tempted to believe that God wouldn’t answer you?  God hears every prayer you pray.  He answers...

God's Got Our Back

Posted in People on Tue, Dec 18 2007 - 08:45 AM

But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard. - Isaiah 52:12 (NIV). Every morning I listen to what God wants to tell me for the day…and lately, He has been saying that He has every thing under control, that He has every thing covered.  This Scripture agrees...

Is He Real?

Posted in People on Mon, Dec 17 2007 - 09:34 AM

For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. - Galatians 1:12. Have you ever had a revelation of Jesus Christ? Some of us who grew up in church heard about Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection.  We could quote you the stories backward and forward, but to us, they were just stories. It ...

Love Conquers All

Posted in People on Sun, Dec 16 2007 - 08:49 AM

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? - Matthew 6:27 (NIV). I am a recovering worrier. It is only by the grace and help of my God that I have started to let go of some of those things that I tried to control in the past. Most people who worry are trying to control some aspect of their lives because the root cause of ...

The Only Way

Posted in People on Sat, Dec 15 2007 - 09:08 AM

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them,...

Who Are You Impressing?

Posted in People on Fri, Dec 14 2007 - 09:07 AM

Your opinion of me is nice, but it isn’t necessary. For many years, I had been obsessed with what people thought of me. Growing up, I used to exaggerate the events of my life to make myself sound more exciting. The problem is that eventually people find out what kind of person you really are. Now, I am to the point in my life that I am...

The Work Belongs To The Lord

Posted in People on Thu, Dec 13 2007 - 10:19 AM

And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints. - 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13. The Lord makes us to increase and abound ...

Increasing Our Increase

Posted in People on Wed, Dec 12 2007 - 09:06 AM

“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase” (1 Corinthians 3:6). God gives us increase.  It isn’t our jobs because they can fail us.  It isn’t our bank account because it can dwindle.  Only God can increase us.  Only God gives us promotion.  He is the only One who can truly move us from our present level to the next...

Connect Every Day

Posted in People on Tue, Dec 11 2007 - 09:23 AM

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up” - Psalm 5:3. To start our days, we need to connect with our God.  That’s the only way to make it through our days victoriously.  It’s imperative that we pray every morning, that we keep our eyes focused on our Lord. ...

Our God, Our Guide

Posted in People on Mon, Dec 10 2007 - 08:54 AM

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.  The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. - Proverbs 4:18-19. Every day, whether we realize it or not, we are being guided carefully by our God.  He is guiding us along the path that we should go.  He is...

Point To The Cross

Posted in People on Sun, Dec 09 2007 - 08:39 AM

Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” - John 8:10-11 (NIV). This woman, who had been caught in the very act of adultery, didn’t receive condemnation from Jesus.  And this was...

What Would Happen?

Posted in People on Sat, Dec 08 2007 - 08:25 AM

“Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4, AMP). Today on the news, I heard about a set of parents who taught their four-year-old to think of all the other children who wouldn’t be receiving toys on Christmas.  In response to...

Picture It...

Posted in People on Fri, Dec 07 2007 - 08:11 AM

Do you remember Sophia on the Golden Girls?  When she wanted to tell a story, she would say "Picture it..." Picture it.  Imagine Jesus nailed to the cross.  He has been beaten to the point where his skin hung on the whip.  His hands and feet were nailed with big stake nails.  A crown of thorns dug into His head.  Now imagine...
