In Tune With God

Love is the eternal momentum by which God carries us through. The Fruits of this Love in our lives is mercy, grace, forgiveness, redemption and above all else Jesus Christ. When we truly submit our ways to the Lord, walking clothed in Christ ...it is then that we do ALL things through the strength that He gives us. It is a measure of His Love that we share with all others.

*God in the Box*


We lose when we try to diminish God to our own understanding, we reflect our own humanity and frailness upon a limitless God. When we say that we are in Christ and then we go about holding up our  prejudices and hatreds before the world on poster-boards declaring what segments of our society that the Lord hates; we have done little more than attempt to contain the UNCONTAINABLE God into our little box.

We diminish ourselves in our efforts to diminish the ALL-ENCOMPASSING Love of God. In this way we become the biggest loser, because we miss out on the fullness that He's prepared for us. Putting God into a box fashioned by human thoughts and ways is one of the biggest disasters any Christian can undertake... moreover, it is IMPOSSIBLE to repress the Almighty God!

Isaiah 55:8-9 says "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts."

For I Am CONVINCED!

On your Christian journey, have you ever felt like you have fallen and can't get up? Have you ever had the thought, "I can't do this... I keep falling"?

we must always be aware of the fact that we TRULY can do all things through Christ who strengthens us to do ALL things for His glory. God never gives up on us... to the point where the life of His only Son was given in payment for our failures.

Each time we fall we must see it as a building block towards the next step on our journey. We must learn from these failures and falters. Giving up is never an option. And then there is this good news:

"But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."--- Romans 8:37-39

Oh What a Privilge

The image below states a profound truth. 
Often I will find myself dragging through my study and devotional as if it is a chore on my daily to do list. When I find myself in this place I must remind myself of the great privilege that is truly is to be deep in the Word guided by the Holy Spirit unlocking great truths of wisdom, which guide me through my day to day MIRACULOUSLY! Not only is it a privilege... IT'S EXCITING!

God is NOT BUSY.

*Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me*

Sometimes we wait until we are cornered to go to Him. Sometimes until we've run out of every perceived option. The truth is we should never have a particular need to go to Him. We must learn the Spiritual mindset that goes to Him for the sheer reason of loving fellowship alone. God is NOT BUSY. As a loving parent He adores talking to His children.

The Motorcycle lesson: Fixing Your Eyes on Jesus

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, FOCUSING our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. ---Hebrews 12:1-3

When I was learning to ride the motorcycle the instructors could not stress enough the importance of this one thing:

"Do not concentrate on the asphalt in front of you... YOU MUST LOOK AT THE PLACE YOU ARE TRYING TO GET TO! Concentrate on the spot you are trying to get to with the bike, focus on that destination; because whatever direction you are looking that is where the bike is going."

This was really stressed when learning to make left or right turns. One day while preparing to make a left turn, I was looking straight ahead and I heard an instructor yell to me, "Stop looking at the fence in front of you look into the turn at the place you want the bike to go!!!"

If you don't look at the place that you are trying to get to on a motorcycle... YOU WILL DROP THE BIKE AND EAT IT!

Somehow I feel this lesson applies to life as well as our Faith. Our focus MUST be on Christ Jesus! If we are looking around and about to the world, we will get ensnared and entangled in sin. If we put our focus on the trouble up ahead we could run into a wall of distraction that leads us to fall into temptations. My point is that we will tend to go into the direction of which we are most focused even when our original intent was to embark upon a different destination.

I implore us all to keep our gazed fixed upon our Lord and Savior and we will reach our destination safely.
