The Breath of God…

The Breath of God… The Holy Spirit is one of the greatest gifts given to mankind. When filled with the Spirit – for those that believe – it’s easy to know that our actions, our words and life, during that moment, are not ours. We did nothing. There are moments when the Holy Spirit reigns down in our lives that afterwards we simply stand in awe and wonder of what happened. It’s like being in a trance or just out-of-body. The more we ask, seek and knock the more the…

What He Sees…

What He Sees… We have no problem hearing what the enemy says and then internalizing and accepting it. We do it all day long. Some do it better than others but most, if not all, of us do it. The enemy loves it, the enemy knows it and the enemy uses it to our great peril. We “hear it” then it moves into our heart and the next thing you know we are acting as if what the enemy said carries weight – it doesn’t. It’s simple to turn it…

Full of New Wine…

Full of New Wine… Being familiar with the effects of “old wine” and what happens when one is “filled”, looking at being filled with new wine takes on a completely different view. When a person is filled with “old wine” or said another way – drunk – they tend to speak gibberish, sometimes incoherent words that mean nothing, go nowhere and are often repeated for no apparent reason. Being filled with ‘new wine’ can in fact make a person speak in a language that is not their own, but it…

Changing The World…

Changing The World… When an empty vessel can be used to start a brushfire that begins changing the world it may be well that others mimic what has been done. If a mere code of morals or a better philosophy of life were sufficient to overcome alcoholism, many of us would have recovered long ago. But we found that such codes and philosophies did not save us, no matter how much we tried. We could wish to be moral, we could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could…

Visions Of Glory…

Visions Of Glory… What will it be like when I hear that sound? All of heaven’s angels crying out: Singing holy, holy, holy are You, Lord Singing holy, holy, holy are You, Lord Singing holy, holy, holy are You, Lord Waiting my whole life for that day Until then I’ll live to hear You say Well Done by Jason Ingram and Matt Fuqua As prayer life evolves and we ask, seek and knock more and more and more, it seems sometimes we are given a glimpse of things that are…

Let Him Hear…

Let Him Hear… Over the past several weeks there has been a change occurring and the Holy Spirit has been moving about in ways previously unknown. Jesus Christ has been the guiding Light over life in ways never thought possible and God has been present softening the heart, opening thine eyes and ears to see and hear the truth, possibly for the first time. When we awaken our lives must change. We can no longer be “lukewarm” but committed or not committed we can not be both, lest we be…

Listening To and Listening For God…

Listening To and Listening For God… And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried out to the Lord because of the Midianites, that the Lord sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage; and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out before you and…

Do What Is Honorable…

Do What Is Honorable… When living in sin (separated from God) dishonor becomes a way of life. There is no honor among thieves and there is no honor to oneself when the enemy is making all the decisions and telling us what is “right and wrong”. The moral compass of Jesus Christ and the guidance from the Holy Spirit are out the door. When one begins to bow to another person, and does not place Jesus Christ above all else, the corruption / brokenness takes on a different view altogether.…

All Our Mind…

All Our Mind… We are taught to love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our strength and with all our mind So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ ” ~Luke 10:27 NKJV As we move through life and sin comes and, hopefully, goes it is our duty to keep our thoughts as clean / pure as possible. It is…

Chief Cornerstone…

Chief Cornerstone… As we stumble and fall throughout this life we are continually getting closer to and separating from God. The goal should be in our “moving closer and separating from God” the goal should be to increase our closeness with God and to shorten our time separated from God. We should begin experiencing much more time closer to God than separated from God while at the same time the “flare ups” should continually be fewer and fewer. If there is malevolence in our disobedience, well, that brings up a…
