Learning Something New!

It is hard to learn something new, when you think you already know everything.  We hear and learn exactly what we want based on our very own values, beliefs, prejudices and personal history.  We wonder why we never grow and why we seem to be our own worst enemy?  A teachable spirit is an open invitation to a changed life.  A changed life is a growing life and and growing life gives glory to the Creator as it shares blessings with all around.  You Creator wants you to be happy and healthy, but allows you to make choices for yourself.  Life is about learning to make the right choices.

Do you really want to walk closer to your Creator?  Do you long to walk close, so that you may hear His chuckles and sighs.  Do you want to learn to see and experience the newness of life that only He can bring.  Do you know that you must let go of your old tired ways?   Do you know this is so hard to do, but not impossible?  To know His will, you must know Him, to know Him, you must let go of some things, so that you can grab hold of others.

We must learn to seek His face with an open heart and clear mind, knowing and trusting that as we journey forward with Him that He will bring about the transformation of our lives by the renewing of our minds.  The work that we need to have done in our lives, is not a work that we do, it is a work that we invite Him to do, by doing the work of faith that invites Him to come in and do His thing.

I challenge you to step away from the distractions and become totally focused on your Creator and the stuff of His creation.  He wants you to understand Him and as you seek to  understand Him and His ways, you will live according to the path that He has marked out for you.

Embrace Him and His will and be satisfied with nothing else and you will live blessed!

Better Than A Pinky Promise!

Pinky Promise!

What do you want for yourself, for your life?  What does God want for yourself, for your life?  I am discovering that what God wants for me and my life is much better than what I want for myself and my life.  As I look back on my life, I can see where I actually kept getting in the way of what is best.

Look at this amazing passage of Scripture, it says it so beautifully:  “2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”  2 Peter 1:2-4

God wants grace and peace to be multiplied into and through our lives.  It is multiplied as we step out of our own knowledge and into our knowledge of Him and His Son, our Savior.  This allows us to yield to His Spirit and experience His purpose and plan.

His divine power has given us everything we need to live the life of Godliness that He has called us to and created us for, a life of virtue and glory.  When I depend on my power, I rob myself of the opportunity to participate in the divine.

He has given us His exceeding great and precious promises, so that we might be partakers of the divine nature and escape the corruption that comes from the lust of the world.  We have a choice to make and our choice determines where and how we will live.  Notice, God does not just give us promises, He gives us His exceeding great and precious promises.

God has and wants what is best for us and our lives, lets step out of our selfishness and into His promises – we will be glad we did!

Too Busy???

Do You Have The Time?

Busy, Busy, Busy! That is the way that most of us live our lives.  We are almost always in motion either “going to” or “coming from!”  To really get the most out of life, we must take some time to step out of the hurried activity and get to know what really matters.  What really matters is a WHO!

Psalms 46:10 says”  “Be still (cease striving) and know that I am God…”  Eight little words packed with a powerful message!

BE STILL! Slow down and come to a complete stop!  Don’t move a muscle!  We need to learn to still our physical bodies, our minds and our spirits, so that we can see, hear and experience God.  God is everywhere!  God is all around us!  The reason that we miss Him is not because He is not here, but because in our busyness, we fail to see, hear and experience Him.  God tells us to cease our striving and in the still and quiet of a moment we can know and experience Him!

Know That I Am God! It is very possible in all of our busy activity to some how, without even realizing it, convince ourselves that we are God.  We know that we are not, but often times, we live our lives as if we think that we are.  What is really going to happen in this world if you take ten minutes out of your day to say no to everything else and yes to the Master?  Do you really think that this world will come screeching to a halt without your activity in it for ten minutes?

Step Out And Away! If you want to know God – really know Him, then you must step out of the busyness and away from the distractions!  Make sure that you take some time today to get out of the fray and into His presence!  You will be glad that you did!
