Sunday Thoughts 3/5/17

st

9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of [those] whose heart [is] loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.” – 2 Chronicles 16:9 NKJV

Hello family. Welcome to Sunday Thoughts. This wont be as deep as the devotions. This will be short thought provoking messages. This scripture shows how jealous God is for our Hearts. God is looking for ANYONE who will pursue Him relentlessly. ANYONE who will Love Him relentlessly. ANYONE who’s heart is loyal to Him and Him alone. ANYONE who will abandon themselves and chase after Him. Will YOU be the ANYONE He finds?

Much Love & God Bless

 

 

 

Morning Coffee 2/20/17 Whats Next?

I gave you land you had not worked on, and I gave you towns you did not build–the towns where you are now living. I gave you vineyards and olive groves for food, though you did not plant them. “So fear the LORD and serve him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD alone. But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.” – (Joshua 24:13-15 NLT)

Hello family, During our life we will see many mountain tops. We will have many victories. Often we sometimes find our self standing on a mountain top wandering what next. We feel great that we have had this awesome victory. But now all the confetti has fallen, the buzz is fading and we feel God start to move and shift our seasons.

What Next God? This question was posed to me by one of my spiritual fathers. At the time a had so much in me i could not give a sold answer. But I was not asked that question to provide him with a right or wrong answer. The question was a challenge for me to not rest on my laurels. It was a challenge meant to push me forward into perusing God for the next step.

Everyday we are given the choice to serve the gods of this world. Or serve the true and living God. Everyday we are face with a what next. And that answer can only come from God. Because each day is a new day with a different mission, another step on this journey called life and we can get pulled off by stuff that will make us feel good. Our purpose is not to feel good! But to make as big of an impact as we can with our God given talents. We will always need to know what is next. That is why many times God wont let us rest to long, He has a plan for us that he needs us to carry out. There are many more mountain tops to stand on. So continue to pursue God. Celebrate all he has done in your life but keep moving forward.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee Devotions: Poking At Their Problems Pt1 2/1/17

Read John 4:1-18

7 Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” 8 He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. 9 The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” – (John 4:7-9 NLT)

Hello family,  Over the past few years and even beyond that. The Church (body of Christ) in general has been In a frame of mind where we are quick to see and poke at the issues of the world and stand up and point the finger at every thing that is wrong and fold its arms like a disappointed adult.

Yes, we are to make disciples of all nations and lead the Lost to Christ. But how can the lost come if all they are greeted with is a bunch of finger pointing and being told how bad off they are. Tell me something, would you hang around someone who made it their number one priority to poke at and highlight every thing that you are doing wrong? No, you would not.

I have a christian group for fans of the cartoon My little Pony. One of the member is not a believer. She made this statement to me. “Im glad I found this group I really have true friends here all of you have shown me what GOOD christians are like.” In the time that she has been apart of the group i have seen her respond positively to my inspirational post. She has even come to me for prayer. She even sent me this message one evening when i had a bad headache. “I pray your God Heals you.” Wow! When she first joined she was very defensive but God is working on her heart drawing her closer. All I have done is shared my life with her and God stared the rest.

Yes, I see the issues in her life, but God did not tell me to point that out. he told me to welcome her with open arms and to encourage her and show her the love of Christ. You see with the woman at the well Christ started with her physical need but was aiming for Her spiritual need. He didn’t come out the gate with a bunch of accusations and finger pointing. He turned a normal conversation right around and spoke to the heart of the woman Christ spoke to the root of her issues, not the symptoms.

Yes, this world has issues but if we look with God’s eyes only then can God use us to tend to the root of the issues. We will get no where poking at the worlds issues. Poking at the problems will not show the world why they need Christ

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 11/22/16 Roll Up Your Sleeves

Read Romans 13:1-7

1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. – Romans 13:1-2 NLT

Hello family, Weather you like it or not Donald J. Trump will be come the next president of the United States Of America. God permitted this to happen. Now be for you get  righteously angry with me. reread the opening scripture. “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.” – Romans 13:1-2 NLT

Is it time to stress, is it time to worry, is it time to grumble and complain? No! Now is the time to pray (if you haven’t been start). Now is the time to take our positions in God’s kingdom (if we haven’t already). Now is the time to remember that no man can override God. We don’t react to what Trump says or any other person but we act according to what the Holy Spirt says. “Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.” – Romans 8:5 NLT

If you think about what CNN says and worry about what FOX news is doing, you are not going to follow what God is telling you to do. Yeah Trump is gonna be president, big deal! To be honest i don’t care who sits in that oval office. Because God is in control! let me say it again, i don’t care who sits in that oval office. Because God is in control! And just maybe God allowed this to get our attention. Maybe He did this to shake us from our cushy american dream world.Now is not the time for panic. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/26/16 Give Your Eyes

Read Matthew 9:35-38

36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; – Matthew 9:36-37 KJV

Hello family, I am writing to you with hurting heart. I met a young man in a My little pony fan artist group I’m in on social media. We struck up conversation and exchanged art work. one of my works that i shared was christian themed. He replied “you’er a christian?” I said yes. There was a long pause before his next message. He replied “I used to be a christian but not any more.”

At that moment my heart began to ache. i asked what happened he replied “I fell in love with a guy.” The ache in my heart grew. Our conversation continued. Before he signed off he said, “I know what the bible says about homosexuality i know its wrong but I’m in love with this guy. It’s too late for me.” I replied its not too late as long as you are breathing it is not to late!

God had out paths cross for a reason God, had me join this fan club for a purposes much deeper than the sharing enjoyment of a carton with others. Since i have been in this group i have stared a christian version of the group and it is steadily growing as God sees fit.

God has destined us to met certain people, He wants to use us too draw the people to Him. But if we are not seeing this world if we are not seeing the people around us with God’s eyes we will miss the opportunity to be used by God. Ask God to give you His eye so you can see every broken heart.

Morning Coffee 10/13/16 Not This Mountain Again

Read Number 8:5-6

We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” NLT

Hello family, for me this week has been about overcoming mountains that i have been wandering around. By gods grace I am finally moving past these mountains. So i can walk forward to the next step.

God could not bring the Israelites into the promise land in there fearful doubtful state. he had to eliminate the things that were getting in the way. Sometimes we get in God’s way and hinder our own process like the Israelites. God will let us hit out baby toe a few times until we see that we are being our own worst enemy. Sometimes we are the ones that need to be removed.

And when we finally get out of God’s way He can then move us forward into what he has for us next. Get over this mountain! Don’t find your self coming back to it saying. Not this mountain again!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/12/16 Simple

Read 1 Romans 8:5-6

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. – Romans 8:5 NLT

Hello family, Last night after i finished writing. I took a step of obedience. I did work on my book, I kicked procrastination to the corner and got a decent amount of work done. When i awoke i felt that he was please with me.

When God says go we sometimes look for the big complicated steps to take, when God is keeping it simple for us. Taking that first step is as simple as a simple act of obedience. That will open up more opportunities and it will become more joyful to take these steps. Just follow the leading of the holy spirt. and watch what happens.

Much Love & God Bless
