What God wants

God wants things here to be like they are in heaven. Really. He is serious. That is what He has in mind for us.

May I tap into that power. Now.

Will I remember to fan the flame?

January 31, 2013 1 comment

Some times, ok, many times, I need to be reminded to fan the flame. So the reminder comes. It is now. The Spirit of God gives us power. This is the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. Why be timid? No reason at all.

I just need to fan the flame. The Spirit is in me. It is in us. No need to be timid at all.

 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1:6 TNIV Bible

What is the importance of prayer?

December 11, 2012 Leave a comment

R.A. Torrey lamented the average believer’s indifference to prayer by writing:Prayer

How little time the average Christian spends in prayer! We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little…the power of God is lacking in our lives and in our work. We have not because we ask not.

Samuel Chadwick writes:

The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”

We know God and He delights in impossibilities. He always asks “Is anything too hard for me?”

I am so very thankful for our God.

What does our God delight in? He delights in impossibilities. What does God say? Nothing is anything too difficult for me.

Nothing is too hard for God. Nothing is impossible to Him.

We know God and He delights in impossibilities. He always asks “Is anything too hard for me?”

Which one of these is your church?

November 3, 2012 4 comments

We have a choice about what kind of church we attend. Which will it be? One where the power of Jesus the Messiah rules everyone and everything OR one where we feel good?

That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus the Messiah, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!

All this energy issues from the Messiah: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, the Messiah rules the church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence. Ephesians 1:19-23 The Message (MSG)

What will I do today?

September 24, 2012 1 comment

God has a mission for us. It is not to just casually encounter people. He wants to transform lives through the power of His son.

Jesus challenges us to make disciples of everyone in the world. Will we today?

How does God’s power come to us?

September 6, 2012 3 comments

The power of God comes like a mighty locomotive. The rails it travels on are our prayers.We were created to have conversations with God. He wants us to connect with Him constantly. We wants to give us direction. That is how we tap into His power.

May my prayers unleash His mighty power.

“Our prayers lay the track down which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails.”

—–Watchman Nee
