I am not looking for places I can plant my flag of mastery; I am seeking a voice, The Voice of the Author.
If you look at the stories of the men of faith in the Bible, each of them had to embrace God and His Word as He defined it to them.
I had a revelation about prayer being an investment with a major ROI. It isn’t as if it's our motivation to pray but it is certainly the reward for praying.
You may not currently see God's movement in your life. You may be questioning, “Where are You, God?” But God's weaving a tapestry to give us every opportunity to know Him.
How many of my disappointments are just God’s loving hand positioning me into His purpose? Could God be that sovereign? Does sovereignty reach that far?
If I am eating the fruits of knowledge then I am involved in fixing what God screwed up and manhandling Him to give me what is good.
When I choose to live my life with thanks to God, I make a choice for Life, which liberates me from the Tree of Knowledge.
Prayer and sovereignty are uniquely entwined while appearing to be seemingly contradictory. So if God is sovereign, what is the purpose of prayer?
God’s Sovereignty is one of those subjects everyone has had trouble with. Only a spiritual man can truly receive this with thanks and a concerted effort.
The paradox is that there are two contradictory realities, God's sovereignty and man's free-will. And while it's a seeming contradiction, Jesus is still Lord.
Despots may scheme and finagle but it's God Himself who places them in leadership. No man can steal what only God Himself endows.
If we define our reality by our current circumstances, we are set up to be offended. Faith trusts that God is good, regardless of my circumstances.
