In a recent post, Lady Gaga: You Were Born This Way, but You Need to Be Born Again, Dr. Micheal Brown commented on attacks a performer called, Lady Gaga, made about Vice President Pence and his wife. It would be good for you to read. I omitted some of his introductory explanation and skipped to the main point of his message, which is something we need to continually remind ourselves: Continue reading
One night I had the most delightful dream. Actually, I don’t think it was a dream, I believe that the Lord was showing me something that is important for us to know. Anyone who has been reborn from the Spirit of God has received the ability to hear their Father’s voice. But sadly, many ignore or lose that ability. Continue reading
Tozer once wrote: “All great Christians have been wounded souls.” I read that again recently and began to wonder whether Tozer was correct on this. Sure, for those who are truly devoted to Yahweh and committed to serving Jesus can understand Tozer’s observation, but not everyone who has been “wounded” in some way will find any benefit out of it. All they see is the pain! Whether this pain is emotional or physical, our growth and success will depend on how we respond to the trials and difficulties we face. Continue reading
There is an old Proverb that says, “There is none so blind as the one who refuses to see.” Our Father is continually giving us messages, but we either refuse to hear them, or we are ignorant of the message. If, for you, it the later, then I encourage you to begin to watch for those messages. See them at the breakfast table or as the children play or in the eyes of the people you see as you shop. What I am saying is that you need to open your eyes and your heart and allow the Lord to amaze you with the insights He will give you.
But if you are one of those who refuses to listen or chooses to ignore those messages, then the letter to the Hebrew Church has something to say:
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion” (Hebrews 3:15)
But you know, over the years I have learned that, as strong as God is and as powerful as He is when He speaks, it is with a “still small voice,” a whisper. He knows your condition; He is aware of your circumstances; He understands your limitations, but, despite all of that, He continues to call out to you!
But, I need to tell you (or maybe to remind you) He has never promised that your obedience or willingness to act would be easy. No, but He did promise that it would be worth it!
But please, do not allow His voice, His Word to you become lost amidst the angry words and the pain and the hopelessness. No, ignore all of that. Allow His peace to flood your heart and heal all of the anger and resentment. He is calling YOUR name and saying, “Come, follow Me and I will cause you to stand strong and mighty and confident. More so than you have ever done before!”

Do we really understand Grace? I mean, over and over and over, I hear that it means, “God’s ‘Unmerited’ Favor.” Okay, so what does that mean? Honest, do you know? Continue reading
