I'm called to be an identifier of whether something is Jesus or not, not whether it’s good or bad. The temptation infused within that kind of judging is to play God.
All the enemy has is the power to convince. If he can gain my agreement and consent, then he has my life.
I am not looking for places I can plant my flag of mastery; I am seeking a voice, The Voice of the Author.
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?
We need many days where we stop life and consider our blessing. But there is something better than a holiday, even as wonderful as Thanksgiving is.
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.
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.
Mankind tends to focus on what's happening, and I am guilty of the same, but there's something higher than what's happening—God's purposes.
Everything in the world is exactly how it should be, or God would change it. This is our sovereignty dilemma.
We are positioned to perfectly witness God’s divine orchestration of our lives so that we might increasingly come to know Him and love Him.
The heart is the seat and center of human life, and is where the issues of the spirit and the will are settled.
