Dreams of Lost Loved Ones

I dreamed about my parents last night and the house where I grew up. It was a pleasant dream but not a pleasant experience. You see, my parents have been dead several years. It was such a vivid dream and I woke up crying and missing them terribly. Sounds depressing, doesn’t it? After their deaths, I dreamed about loosing my parents all the time – sad dreams where my parents were lost and I had to find them, or sick…

Spiritual Beliefs To Stand Firm in Your Faith

* Key Verse: Isaiah 43:2 “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.” When the winds of adversity blow it’s easy to lose heart and sight of God. We sometimes allow our emotions to take over which blurs our focus and weakens our spiritual endurance. During trying times you must embrace…

A Pillow to Dream On

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. How often do we, like Jacob, say the same thing when we realize “surely the Lord is in this place, and I knew it not.” Jacob was in a state of fleeing from his brother over fear of being killed. A death sentence was put out on Him and he knew he had to get out of town…

Spiritual Birth Canals

(Romans 7:14-25) “After all, the law itself is really concerned with the spiritual- it is I who am carnal, and have sold my soul to sin. In practice, what happens? My own behavior baffles me. For I find myself not doing what I really want to do but doing what I really loathe. Yet surely if I do things that I really don’t want to do, I am admitting that I really agree with the law. But it cannot be…

This Thing Called Authority

?I’m a man under authority myself, and I have soldiers under me. I can say to one man ‘Go’ and I know he’ll go, or I can say ‘Come here’ to another and I know he’ll come – or I can say to my slave ‘Do this’ and he’ll always do it.” Father I pray that you will reveal your word today in its fullest content as to how you revealed it to me. Let this teaching be a life-…

Pathway To Excellence

Psalm 147:5 “Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” When we compromise on God’s clearly stated truth, we dilute His standards. God knows best. Rationalize as we might, compromise is simply an attempt to bring God down a notch, to say that we really know what is best, which always leads to unpleasant consequences. Galatians 6:7-9 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he…

Spiritual Birth Canals-Chapter 4

After the joy of the new birth comes a process, which I call “seed death,” which is aimed directly at the throne room of the new believer. The purpose of this action is geared at breaking “self rule” that has so long dominated a person’s life. The Lord does not “roughly” toss us off the throne but over a period of time he gets the job done. For example, if rebellion to authority has been our companion then he will…

The Born Again Experience

In the previous two chapters I discussed the pre-birth process and I must add that each of us experience this in different ways. Some go through the birth canal in a radical way where as others seem to have an easy go of it. But either way what matters is that they make it safely without unnecessary set backs or misguided efforts by us. I have listened to many ways of how others came to know the Lord and I…

Speak it out loud – – A Coincidence?

Don’t tell GOD you have a problem. Tell your problem you’ve got a big GOD and you’ll scare it away knowing that your big GOD is with you! –Unknown My Mom bought 2 vine plants from a magazine. She planted one and gave the other one to me. It was supposed to be a vine with beautiful orange trumpet type flowers that would attract hummingbirds. We waited anxiously for it to have flowers. The first year – just a big…
