Morning Coffee 8/16/16 The Next Leak

Read Matt 4:3-11

8 Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. – Matthew 4:8 NLT

Hello family, Lately i have been mending and enforcing some week spots in my life. These were the normal situations. The enemy try and distract me from God. As of late it as not be working. Did that mean temptations went away no! The enemy tried to find another distraction to pull my attention.

When Jesus was tempted by the devil, he was tempted multiple times using different situations. Temptation is like water. It will not try and force it way through the hardest path. Water will alway take the path of least resistance. Thats why when you find a leak in your roof you don’t plug the hole the water is leaking out of. No! you open up some walls and trace the leak!

If you jut plug the hole you see eventually the water (temptation) will find another weak spot to drip through. Don’t try and patch your relationship with God. If he tells you to remove things that will cause a leak in your spiritual life. Go to the source not the symptom and remove it!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 5/23/16 Sin

the new mc banner

15 “If you love me, obey my commandments. – John 14:15 NLT

Hello family, when you read the title the typical thought process of listing the obvious sins probably started rolling through your head. Put that tape on pause for a second. Sin covers more that what is in the ten commandments.

Sin in hebrew means to miss the mark or go wrong. God plants an idea or dream in your mind, You feel the motivation to go forward and start putting this plan into action. But you don’t, you let it fade away. For whatever reason, doubt, fear, pride procrastination, etc you don’t act on the vision that God gave you. That is sin!

When we let these opportunities to please God pass by it is sin. We have missed the intended goal that God set for us. God plants Ideas (commands) in our minds every day sometime we don’t even realize it. It could be something simple as turning left instead of right. No matter how simple or insignificant it may seem, act on it. God saw it as a big enough deal to tell you that command. So it is a Big deal!

It’s not alway easy to do this but the benefits far out weigh the cons. This is God we are talking about here! We have nothing to lose! God does not have a down side

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/12/16 Freedom

the new mc banner

15 Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! – Romans 6:15 NLT

Hello family, last night i read a devotion that really defined our freedom in Christ. When we come to Christ we receive freedom. This freedom is not for us to do whatever we want. This freedom enables us to submit to God and obey His commands. Before we follow Christ we did not know how to do right we were bound to sin.

Christ came in beat up the bad guys, broke the chains that kept us bound and told Us to follow Him to safety. Sometimes we (myself included) go back to the bad guys and put back on the very chains christ set us free from. Yes God does give us His grace but we are to take hold of that grace not misuse it!

We are now able to run after Christ Let us run with reckless abandon! We are now free to do so! God is now our master we now obey him! There is no natural ground!

Much Love & God Bless
