Peace for Your Problems

Philippians 4:6 & 7 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” 

frightened-1172122_960_720It sure seems like an easy thing to worry. Everyday, problems come our way, and we have a choice. We can either decide to worry and be anxious, or we can turn everything over to God, knowing that He is in control.

Philippians 4:6 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 
When we are anxious and troubled, our minds become anxious and troubled & consumed with the problem or situation.

When we are consumed with the problem, we focus on all the negatives, not all the positives. Focusing on all the negatives causes us to have toxins released in our bodies that make us ill. We literally make ourselves sick by the constant focus on our problems and being anxious about the situation.

So, God gives us the answer…  Read More

Alignment

Posted by | Bible Study, Devotions, Missions, Training, Worship & the Arts | No Comments

In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6 – NASB

Recently, I noticed my car was pulling a bit to the right, which is better than pulling to the left, into traffic, but still is not as it should be.

That means my car has issues. It needs an alignment. When your car pulls right or left at the same time that you’re trying to make it go straight, then you’ve got issues. And it means you need to get your car to a place that does alignments.

Basically, an alignment “will make your [car’s] path straight,” like in today’s Bible verse.

It’s pretty common to need an alignment for your car. You need your car realigned because it’s been out doing what cars do – driving on bumpy roads, hitting potholes, and going over an occasional curb. Stuff like that knocks your car out the alignment.

The problem is, if you don’t get your car realigned, it throws everything off. The longer it goes on, the worse the damage. Including destroying our tires & then causing problems in many other areas.

Kind of like in our lives.  Read More

STOP!

Stop-300x300“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 ESV

It is a new year. As a ministry we always stop at the end of the year and ask God to clarify what the coming year will be for us. What is the vision for the new year? What is the Mission for this next season? What strategies are we to implement, with our activities this year, that will accomplish the Mission and Vision?

We have been actually processing this, for 2015, since the beginning of the Jewish new year 5775 back in September of 2014. The year 5775 after Creation, which runs from Sept. 25, 2014, through Sept. 13, 2015. The year 5776 starts Sept. 14, 2015. Since last September, we have been sensing a shift in our activities, and in our vision, and have been pressing in to what that could mean for us in 2015.

2015 is a Sabbath Rest year (Shemittah 5775) and a Jubilee Year (Yobel 5776). In the Bible during the year of Sabbath Rest, and a Jubilee Year, all debts between Jewish debtors and creditors were cancelled, and all slaves were released. Every seventh year, in the Sabbath Rest year, the farmers did not toil in the fields. They gave the land a year of rest. They trusted God for provision. And because of the year of rest for the fields, the land was more fruitful in the subsequent seasons. In addition, during the Jubilee Year all slaves were freed, and all fields and houses sold during the past fifty years were returned to their original owners. Read More

Hidden Treasure

Posted by | Bible Study, Devotions, Missions, Worship & the Arts | No Comments

Treasure chest“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6: 19 – 21.

I am a Treasure Seeker.

A Destiny Prospector.

There is nothing I like more than discovering a treasure. Whether it is a beautiful shell on the beach, or a unique bargain in a special hand shop, or the enormous privilege of helping a person discover the destiny that God has for them.

God has created you for something special. You are HIS treasure! His hidden treasure. A treasure is a very valuable object – like a buried treasure chest full of gold and diamonds. The word “treasure” can also be used as a verb, like when you treasure something in your heart. Read More

Heart of God – Painting Series by Diane

Heart of God – Painting Series

I have spent much of this summer once again looking at the Vision that I have for my life, and asking God what it is that HE wants from me.

What God wants from me, is me. Plain and simple. He wants me to love Him.

We know we are to obey the commandments of God. So, like the man in the Bible, when we ask about what we should do, we should ask God, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

The Greatest Commandment – Mark 12:28-31 (NIV) 28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

29 “The most important one,”answered Jesus, “is this: Read More
