  5. Lord I don't know what to reply, so I said. But to say; Thank you Jesus. I'd testify I haven't had worries, not from the very moment i was born again, but the very moment I told Him; “Lord, I don't care, do what you want, still I'll love you.”

  8. Hi, and appreciate your instructional comment! Even though gratitude comes most difficulty during the trials, it carries most meaningfully during the "hardness" (2Ti 2:3); as it always hurts least and teaches us the most in patiently waiting it out, by "casting" it on Him" (1Pe 5:7).

  9. I was very much a teenager and deeply in love with the stars and anything--science, science fiction and space comic books. My first writings were space novels, at eleven, but I was never more in joy when I got to high school and was looking up the definition of this word you reference. Its history changed so much in me as a writer and as a maturing youth. One word when its meaning is found can do many things...and so I write now about the many other words which ever shape and augment our musical souls. I love being in word...maybe you can tell. Anyway, I enjoyed your use of the word consider.

  11. Well Don't try to comfort yourself okay, rather let our weaknesses draw us closer to God in Faith. All it takes is “doubt,” to hinder God's will our lives. It'll be good if you don't. Jesus came to restore our relationship, and a relationship that crashes from time to time is not really a strong foundation for God to build upon, we ought to grow in God's spirit. I can't remember where it say in the scriptures, but still; “ He that is born of God cannot sin, because God's seed remains in Him.” You only need not to hinder God's res

  13. Don't worry, I don't mind. However, it'll be good to know that Jesus came to destroy the curse of sin and death, and the delivery power of God's word is complete. I understand t hat you're saying. Still, when we are saved, we don't automatically become strong, we are born again of God's spirit as children, until we spend more time in His word to become filled with His life, only then we become sons, unwavering. The the scriptures becomes ture, that; He who is born of God cannot sin because God's seeds remains in Him. You only.need to believe that Jesus came to destroy s

  15. Chris, I think you are being to hard on yourself. Sanctification is a process and we are all in it together. The Holy Spirit knows our weaknesses and He helps our infirmities. Jesus told Paul, "My strength is made perfect in your weakness." Again, I commend you for telling the truth and exposing yourself to others. Do you know my dear brother this takes courage? I love real people who are not ashamed to tell the truth on themselves. Be encouraged, the more you yield to the Holy Spirit, the more the change that is taking place on the inside, will become more evident. Love you to li

  16. Thanks for the story. During difficult times, this verse keeps me going: "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you." Isaiah 43:2 NKJV

  19. That brought a story to my memory as well This big church was receiving a new pastor. They prepared a meal, the choir dressed to impress, and everyone attended on this Sunday morning. This man entered the building wearing old worn out clothes covered in dirt and filth. His hair was greasy and his skin was dirty. The people looked upon him with judgmental eyes. He was seated in the back by the ushers. Not even one person welcomed him or approached him. When the deacon approached the pew to make announcements, he said, "Today we meet our new pastor." He called his name, and everyone's eyes were

  30. Donna, WoW! Thank U so much for sharing that. I had situations that I wasn't experiencing healing from, and I did a family tree that took me thru beahviors of my family and how that shaped my life. It showed me things that could only be revealed to me by God and I was able to dig those roots up I know what my triggers are now, and instead of filling them with the old sinful behaviors that I would to suppress those feelings, I am learning to depend on God and trust Him and the truth of His Word! The struggle is real though lol, but much easier is the struggle when God is helping carry the loa

  33. @SpecFictionGuy I myself have a y.e.c. view. Yeah I was thinking how much healthier the food would have been then with none of the preservatives added and how much cleaner the air would have been to breathe without all this pollution in it. The water was probably sparkling from superb freshness Good answer man - I like it

  34. In the beginning the tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and if, Adam and Eve had made the correct choice they would have lived forever. We know that, that tree represents Jesus Christ. I believe that the lifespan of that generation was shortened because the wickedness and the corruption of mankind grew worse, and worse in the earth. In the six chapter it is revealed that God was grieved and expressed His sorrow that He created mankind and decided to destroy them. He said "my Spirit will not always strive with man." Sin always brings forth dea

  35. He was in the synagogue, I believe it's no different today. Many in the organized church do not really know or have a personal relationship with Christ. But the Holy Spirit wants all of us to have an encounter with, and to know Him intimately. I would also like to share another perspective, there are many in the body of Christ that need deliverance, healing and to be restored, who have sat in the pews and have gone unnoticed. I pray that there will be a greater discernment in the body of Christ. The Lord wants His people to be made whole!

  36. Chris, thanks for the great devotional today. The passages you quoted reminded me of the basis for my own faith and the cornerstone of my wife's and my ministry - Faith On Every Corner. Our company motto is "We live by faith." Craig

  37. So when I read your instruction that we should obey the "don't" command, I was tempted to disobey. But then I resisted the temptation.... Good advice!

  38. That is awesome Sometimes we are so distracted that we miss these valuable moments that God speaks to us. I am a routine person myself. If i am busy or late, i want to put things off to the next day - even reading my Bible. I am always reading now. Anytime I have a free minute I am pulling Logos up on my phone. Thank you for sharing.

  39. The Nature of Christ: Part Two The Nature of Jesus What would it be like to be God, and to know that you are God? We all like to pretend we are God sometimes. We want to act like we have the power to control certain situations, or we want to act like we can control another person, and our list of trying to be God goes on, and on, and on. Jesus was just like us. He could smell, touch, feel things, experience hurt, pain, anger, and He was God. Imagine what you would do when someone hurt you and your anger burned strong within you. What would you do? Would you denigrate t

  40. Praise God! I am glad that God could use it. Very true, others may not know our name or know us. God our father knows our name and loves us and that will always be true! I try to write what God calls me to write and then hope that He uses them!

  41. This really made me think about something - thank you! My name is Chris, but for 3 years it was 414734 because I belonged to the state of TN. I had to memorize that number because when they would call me they did not call me Chris. I had lost all of my rights and I still cannot vote or own a firearm. The wonderful thing is that through that horrible time, God still knew my name Thank you for your devotionals - I enjoy reading them. Blessings

  45. It's my understanding that God spoke in these certain ways to teach us, e.g. He knew where Adam was when He asked, "where are you," and what have you done." Though I know we will differ on this issue, I want to add that God can say to you what He would do if you do this or that, but He already knows what you will do concerning this or that, and what He is going to do concerning this or that, regardless of what He says and how He says it. Of course, it's okay that we differ here in our understanding, because it's not like it's essential doctrine (e.g. salvation is faith in Christ).

  46. Moses hesitated to be used by God, fearing his lack of eloquence. Yet it is God who made our capacity for speech and He will move us to speak with his words. If it was dependent on our way with words, we would get the praise for someone’s conversion, but because God does the work, He gets the glory. We would be more afraid to speak if it did depend on our eloquence, but instead we’ve been set free from our fear because God promises to speak through us (if we would only realize this). Thank you for your thoughts.

  48. "We have to see God in everything." Yes! I agree. Some may think I see him too much, but I don't care. Even the bunny hopping across my lawn is God's way of saying "Hi" to me. I like your story. You may enjoy a kind of similar walking story where I talked to a woman on the side of the road - it's a bit crazy, but also joyful.

Remains one of my favorites. we're glad you've joined us. I hope, though, that you'll hop over to Meet and Greet and introduce yourself so everyone will know you are here and can welcome you.
