God’s Word

Radically Saved

Isaiah 55:11 -“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”

God’s Word never returns void, Amen?

You Are Not Alone

ONE OF the Enemy’s biggest lies is to try and tell us that we are all alone. In a world of over 8 billion people and technology that connects us like never before, we feel more alone than ever. It is our Enemy you can thank for that..

Romans 8:39 “No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

So, what I have found is that instead of using MY logic and MY debating skills, I simply offer Truth. Truth is a person found only in Jesus Christ and this passage out of Romans gives us Truth to combat the counterfeit lies of the Enemy. Some details you shouldn’t miss here..

1. There is no power in all of existence greater than God and His love. No matter how you may FEEL, nothing is greater than Him.

2. Once you are His, there is NOTHING you can do (or anyone else for that matter), that can separate the love that He has for you. Please don’t respond with the usual “Once Saved, always Saved rebuttals”; once you have that relationship made and truly accepted, that’s it. It doesn’t give us license to freely sin but if you do God doesn’t void your salvation because of it. Now there is the question if you were TRULY saved, that can be another blog post….

3. The Love of God can only be revealed through His Son Jesus Christ. There are no other paths, highways, or doors. If you want eternal life in Heaven and to experience a love that passes ALL understanding, its only through Jesus that you will find it. Period, end of story, no debate needed. Deny it if you will but one day you will confess it.

Friends, suicide is at an all time high. One reason is the media has glamorized it like its something special to be treasured. WRONG. Another lie from the Enemy; it solves nothing and only brings more pain to all involved. What I am telling you today is that if you feel alone its a lie! You couldn’t be more loved, more treasured, and more adored; you simply just have to stop looking in the wrong places for it. Look above at the night stars and just observe the wonder and awe of all that you see. The same Creator that made all of that also made you and is right by your side. You have worth, you have value, and you are loved; just accept that love today…

Peace and Love my friends,

David

Something WAY Different

Ok so almost all my blog posts are Spiritual in nature and I have no disillusions that I will write anything else on a permanent basis but I thought I would try something WAY different tonight. A little snapshot into my life right now…

As some of you know, my wife and I moved in with her parents to help them out financially so that they wouldn’t lose their home. I mean, its the Jesus thing to do right? So with that said, please understand that I was raised in a extremely strict home when it comes to table manners. No elbows, chew with your mouth shut, you know the drill. There were two things though that would have gotten me slaughtered quite literally at the table which for some reason my in laws do and it makes me die a little each time.

1. Burping and farting at the table.

2 (And this is the biggie); I literally saw my Grandfather almost beat someone up in an restaurant once for this…BLOWING YOUR NOSE. I mean who doesn’t want to see some good ole snot with their food.

I told you this would be different; please help! How do I combat this??

Agape Love,

“Who’s Really In Charge Here?” By Casey Treat

While most relationships start based on feelings and emotions, any long-standing marriage was sustained by choice. Emotions enrich our lives and add dimension, but they do not add structural support. Many people say that they need to follow their feelings. We sing songs about listening to our heart, having a loving feeling, and being enraptured in the moment. While they make catchy lyrics, they do not help us live Godly lives.

What do you allow to be in control of your life? If your emotions dictate the majority of your day, your days may look more like a roller-coaster than a journey with God. Emotions cannot control your life; choices must control your life. Choices set upon God’s Word are stable, unwavering, and a strong structural support to build your life on.

Renewal Thought: What emotions have been running your life that you are realizing are unfruitful? How can you change from being emotionally driven to setting your mind on Godly choices and staying committed to them?

Prayer: Today, Father, I choose life and I choose blessing. I choose to believe and not doubt. I choose to walk by faith, not fear. With your help, Holy Spirit, I will choose all that God wills for me. I believe abundant life is mine, and I am taking the steps required to experience it to the fullest. Thank you, God, for the power to choose. I choose life and I choose blessing today.

Agape Love,

David

Warped

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope everyone has been having a great weekend and enjoying some down time. I had a bit of a coughing fit last night and didn’t fall asleep until about 4:15 so just getting up and around. Coffee is in hand though and ready to fight another day.

Warped…Have you noticed how many things that God created have been warped into meaning something completely different today? Warped to the point that many do not even remember where it came from. I will bring 3 short examples to your attention this morning.

1. Marriage- this is the obvious one. Now before the hate train piles up on me I am not judging anyone because of their lifestyle choices; what I am saying is that God the Creator of all things also created marriage. He created it to be between one man and one woman. Today this has been warped into all different variations, none of which God intended.

2. Rainbows- This one in particular is intriguing because God created the rainbow as a sign of a promise between Him and mankind that He would never again destroy the Earth with a flood. A sign that still is shown today for those that constantly demand a sign that He still exists. Interestingly enough, this is the symbol that the Pride movement has embraced to promote their way of living. Again, not judging but make no mistake that the use of the rainbow is basically giving the middle finger to God and it is very intentional. Kind of hypocritical if you ask me coming from a group of people that preach about love for ALL people.

3. Fasting- This really gets my goat because fasting has become a new trend word just like blessing. We use the word but do not perform the action in the way it was intended. God created fasting as a way to give something up, for a temporary time, so we could spend more time with God in prayer. I guess that is why the tradition of Lent always has confused me because it seems more like a way to self promote rather than to spend more time with God. (And oh by the way, fasting was supposed to be done in secret. Don’t believe me? Look it up. I won’t do the work for you).

There are so many things that this world has taken from God and warped into a worldly and most of the time sacrilegious act. What others can you think of? Love to hear from you all.

Have a blessed day!

David
