Morning Coffee 6/6/18 Taking Out The Bowman

Hello family,

The Bowman otherwise known as an archer is a key piece in any army. The arrow of the bowmen weakens the enemy’s forces before the infantry attacks. Without the bowmen things would be a different story. Without the bowman there is no arrow to hit the heart of the enemy.

So, who are the bowmen? The bowman are the Fathers the men, married, single or even divorced. Ladies this is not a knock against you, if anything it’s a knock for you. My brothers this is not a man hype message But God sending a message for us to get in line under his order that He laid out before creation. I’m not sure how long we will be on this subject, but this has been building in my sprit for past few months.

In Genesis God created an order and this worlds system has pulled us out of order. I’m an 80’s baby/90’s kid, young enough to be considered a millennial. My life span falls in a unique place in time. I’m old enough to remember reruns of shows like I love Lucy, Mr. Ed, The Walton’s, Father knows best, Little house on the prairie, etc. As I sit here reflecting over the shows I grew up with and then observe the shows that are out now. You can see a shift and a clear pattern. Somewhere between Little House on the Prairie and Modern Family, the Bowman has been demoted, devalued or put out altogether. And this shift has been successful in influencing us all.

Now if men are the bowmen then the children are the arrows that are aimed and shot out into this worlds system. And if there is no bowman or the bowman does not fully understand and guard his position he can’t properly shoot or aim his children (physical, adopted or spiritual) in the right direction. So, when they grow up if not corrected they end up shooting off target arrows.

We are going to pause here for now. But if you are a natural born man, think in this during your day. You are someone’s bowman. There is a person, one or more that God is using you to aim them in the right direction. They don’t have to be your blood child you don’t have to even be married. You are someone’s bowman.

 

Much Love God Bless

Morning Coffee 6/4/18 Remember

Remember when I walked with you in the cool of the day?

Remember when you shifted your schedule, so you could stay?

What happened my child?

Why did you go away?

Hello Family

God, where are you? We all have asked this question at some point in our walk. Like a child that walked away from his parents in a busy shopping mall we stress, cry and scream “where are you?!” Believe it or not it is not God who moved, its us.

We like the child in the shopping mall are drawn away and distracted by the “candy” of this world. And when we look up from what distracted us, we don’t see God. But God was leading us, He was making the path straight for us, being a pillar of cloud by day. And a pillar of fire by night. But we took our eyes off Him and decided that this other way is quicker. So now we find our self-lost unable to get back on track, what do we do?

Revelation 2:4 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp-stand from its place—unless you repent. It doesn’t have to be something dramatic and big. You could have simply stopped your late night quiet time with the Lord, you could have stopped writing a devotional series God put in your hands. It is more often the subtle things that get us furthest off track from God. God has not moved, we are the ones that moved. He is calling us back in alignment with him. God has not left you, return to those things that fertilized your relationship with him, return to your first love.

 

Much Love God Bless
