Clear Minds

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Second Timothy 1:7

Pastor Joseph Prince: a glass of water with sediment, let the glass settle, it will become clear, same with your mind

“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33

“As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in.”  85 year old Caleb in Joshua 14:11

We live in the greatest country on earth: freedom to live and worship our God, Miraculous God, therefore we put down fear, and we live in faith and truth. Tearing down statues is a sign of overcoming an oppressive government, where we in United States have the right to vote in our leaders and laws and to protest. “Wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.”  Ecclesiastes 2:13 and “Righteousness exalts a nation.”  Proverbs 14:34.

Fresh As A Daisy

“Give us day by day our daily bread”

Jesus in Luke 11:3

“Thank You, that it’s a breakthrough day”  Joel Osteen

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”       Acts 3:19

Get out of that energy soup and be free in Jesus Christ.

“Yes, brother, let me have joy from you in the Lord, refresh my heart in the Lord.”

Philemon 20

The Big Picture

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

Ephesians 2:10 (New Living Translation) Biblia.com

We were jokingly taught in school that the chemicals our bodies are made up with would gain less than $1.00 if sold.

“A rose by any other name is still a rose.” William Shaekespeare

Whatever you call them, each one of us is a person: fetus, enemy, “God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). He does not see color, fame, finances, etc. No partiality

“You’re My prize possession” God said to Joel Osteen

“Therefore love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” Deuteronomy 10:19

That Makes Sense

“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”     1 John 2:5

“Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:5

I pray you receive the Lord’s revelation of all you are asking.  He alone can make sense of what boggles the minds in us and any scholar or president. In Jesus’ name.

Rejoice With Me

“…for I have found the piece which I lost” Jesus in Luke 15:9

“Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls –

“Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

“The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills.”

To the Chief musician. With my stringed instruments.”

Habakkuk 3:17-19

It’s Over

…A friend exclaimed, after listing all his broken plans being why he’s moving back to his home state.

“All is not lost,” God’s says.  And the lessons we learn are priceless. Come home where God has a plan for you. Cut your losses and He will give you so much more.

Proverbs 16:1, “The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.”

“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” Matt 6:8 (NIV)

 

Truth in the Inward Parts

Psalm 51:6, “Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.”

This verse came to my spirit one morning, later a friend played a teaching of the 51st Psalm.

Are we keeping our words?  Teachers are held to higher standard (James 3:1)

Church ministers going against their own promises; brow-beaters with lectures; using world-view words speaking cynically about the needy: _________________; mock the Holy Spirit.  Let the Spirit teach, convict.

He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who honors Him has mercy on the needy.” Proverbs 14:31

“…Serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;” Jude 1:12

“And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:”                        John 16:8

“Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready.”

Revelations 19:7

Higher Standard

In Pastor Tim Keller’s The Reason for God, 2008, he quotes one of many former athiests: Christians have a “higher standard” following Jesus, than she thought she had by being a moral person.

“Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.” Romans 12:2 (Good News Translation w/ Apocrypha GNTA)

Matthew 5:

“Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.”    Verse 28 (NKJV)

“And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”           Verse 30 (NKJV)
