Give Back The Pen

Hello my friends and welcome to Sunday. I pray that this week went well for all of you and you are closer to Jesus than ever before. If you don’t know Jesus as Savior today, please run to Him and accept His free (to you) gift of Salvation while you still have the choice to make, Amen?

Ok so I posted this quote this week and got a really good response from it so I thought I would expand upon my thoughts on this today. Sound good?

Stealing the pen…many believe that there is no point in making plans and setting a course for your life because things are already predetermined and nothing you or I do will make a difference. That could not be further from the truth this morning. Stay with me here and really soak in this next sentence and commit it to memory..

**Just because God knows the choices you will make does not take away the opportunity you have to make those choices**

David Fischer

The first lie is that you have no real choices; the second lie is that God doesn’t really care or He is not moving fast enough so you need to take back control of your life (steal the pen from God). You do all understand that God created EVERYTHING in the Universe right? You understand that God made you from dust into the sophisticated, complex, unbelievable creation that you have become right? So why in the world would you want to give up that direction and take your own? How well as it worked so far?

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Isaiah 41:10

Friends, God is, always has been, and always will be in control of everything that is going on in His Creation. Unfortunately, the free will He has given us we take and mess things up. The reason we have this free will is God wanted us to love Him not by force but by CHOICE. Again, He knows what our choice will be, yet we still can make the choice. Today, make the choice to give back the pen of life to Jesus. He knows more about you than you ever will; He knew you before you were even created so of course He will have the best plans and the best paths for your life. Trust Him to do for you what you simply cannot do for yourself.

Give up the pen; in fact, give it up and NEVER take it back. The God of all Creation is just waiting to write your next Great Chapter. I promise you, it will be a best seller….

-Blessings and Love,

David

Land Of Confusion

Radically Saved

Well, hello all. It’s been a while….

So much going on in my life; I won’t begin to bore you with the details but suffice it to say things have been challenging to say the least since February. I stepped back from writing since then but yesterday I knew I had to, at least for today, write again…

Did you read my title? Does it not fit in the world we live in? Let me give you a brief recap in case you have been on a remote island somewhere and don’t have a clue..

1. COVID 19 has put the Spirit of fear in our world like never before.

2. The Fake News industry claims the President of the United States said to drink bleach and people are believing it.

3. You can go by a lottery ticket, and kill your unborn child, however you cannot go to church.

Land Of Confusion

Well, hello all. It’s been a while….

I could go on and on but you get the picture; this is where we are at in 2020. And if I’m being honest, God seems to be missing throughout all of this. Although we did ask Him to leave so we only have ourselves to blame there..

I keep hearing about an uprising from a group called “Q” and while most seem well intended, the only thing I see so far is a bunch of empty promises about arrests and “Dark to Light”. I hope there is a bigger picture there but as of now I just don’t see it.

So where does this leave us I ask? We are a nation, heck a world divided with seemingly no hope, no morals, and no real direction. Well for me the verse I came across this morning said it all…

Psalms 46:10- “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”

What choice do we have really? All of our options have been taken away and while I support President Trump, he is NOT our Savior, Jesus Christ is. Now I pray that God uses the President to truly bring the Dark to Light, but at this point who knows really?

How can we really know for sure that the “Right” isn’t just as corrupt and misleading as the “Left”? How do we know for sure that we aren’t just being fed what we want to hear and in actuality ALL that we see and hear is a lie? Truth is, we really can’t know for sure.

What we can know for sure though is the promises of God. He is the only one worthy of our complete trust and worship and while our ears may be tickled by the President and various movements such as “Q”, the only real saving grace is for us to just be still and know that God is there and one day soon, He will restore and repair things to where they were intended.

**Disclaimer**- I do support President Trump and the “Q” movement, I am simply offering perspective.

Friends, this is a dark time we are going through and the Bible tells us it will get worse before it gets better so hold on to Jesus like never before, arm yourselves with the things God has given you, and if you don’t know Jesus Christ as Savior, now would be a good time to make that commitment.

Love to all,

David
