Creation

Standard

“All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.” John 1:3

At the very core, foundation, hear and basis for everything is that ALL THINGS ARE CREATED BY GOD! Not evolution or anything else. Once there was nothing & then God created everything.

When we are connected to God we too are creative, but apart from Him our creativity is reduced to zero. Wild, wonderful, inspired ideas, songs, music, art, visions, companies, strategies, solutions, all come to mind easily when we are connected to God, but Apart from Him we are in the dark.

As personalities, once we were not – we did not exist. But now we do – self aware and able to be creative, like God.

This is the great gift of the Father to us – to exist with free will & become creative with Him, through being connected with Jesus Christ.

Don’t disconnect!

Power of Praise

Standard


“Praise the Lord, O my soul! While I live i will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.” Psalm 146:1-2

Our highest calling in life is to bring glory to God, to worship, praise and thank Him! Praise must come from our soul, from deep within never to be just words on our lips.

We should ‘feel’ worship & praise gratitude for God in our soul. Never underestimate the power of praise.

Praise opens gates into the presence of God. Praise gets your spirit free!! Praise encourages your spirit to rise up.

As long as we live our commitment is to praise God – for the rest of my life, I will worship. While you have the chance, any chance, turn everything else off & turn your praise song on!

Sing to God. Make a joyful noise to Him! Don’t be embarrassed. Never let the devil steal your song! It’s your key to victory!!

Don’t forget who you are!

Standard

“…for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it… this one will be blessed in what he does.” James 1:23-25

Giant problems can make you forget that you are a giant slayer. You have authority in this life. Jesus went to sleep in the boat, so the disciples would wake up & realise they had the same authority as Jesus.

When the did wake Him, He stopped the storm with a Word. He said in so much – ‘you should have done this.”

The storm made them forget who they were. Don’t be intimidated by your problems.

We will be blessed in what we do when we remember who we are according to the Word of God and act accordingly.

Live for others

Standard

“Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.” Gen 13:11

The most boring & empty life is when you live for yourself. Biggest mistake Lot ever made was to chose for himself.

Abraham had given Lot 1st choice. He should have told Abraham he would go wherever he told him. Living for God means I eat, breathe, sleep, rest, work, think, study, train, plan & dream…. for Him, not for me.

Living for God will disadvantage me at times, many times, but that’s where real life is discovered, in sacrifice for another.

Lot should have chosen for Abraham and made sure he got the best land instead of choosing it for himself. After he separated from Abraham (his source of blessing) Lot spiralled downhill. Also, as soon as Lot left, God gave Abraham the vision of the Promised Land.

Our vision can be limited or expanded by the assosciations in our lives!
