Encouraging Thoughts

  1. Multiplying Words without knowledge...

    A few passages to consider in Job. Job 34:35-37 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. [36] My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men. [37] For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God. “Job has spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.” ... “...he multiples his words against God.” Job 35:16 [16] Therefore doth Job open his mouth in...
  2. “This is the Work of God...”

    John 6:29 [29] Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. “This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.” A lot of discussion on “work” never coming to any agreement. All I can share is my own experience and it is this ...the work of God that you believe is ongoing and goes deep is anchored. It doesn’t appear to be an instant “believe” but a full work to completion of “...that you believe on him whom he has...
  3. Hope Lives!

    According to your work...we read what He says pertaining to the outward man which perishes, this world which perishes and passes away, the old crucified ...all things created and made new in Christ. The command is to walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. [15] Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their...
  4. Reprove

    John 8:41,51 [41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. [51] Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. What are His sayings? Colossians 3:8-9 [8] But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. [9] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; “...filthy communication out of...
  5. Equity

    Equality and Equity. Two words. It wasn’t until the other day that I learned the two are not the same. The focus of this post is the one I didn’t understand...Equity. Equity is giving everyone what they need to be successful. Of course that is googles definition but it helps give perspective to why “equity” is mentioned as pertaining to God. But then one must also define what success means to them. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that...
  6. Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven (Part two)

    Luke 11:52 [52] Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. "For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings." (Hosea 6:6). Jo b says, "Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways." (Job 21:14) Matthew 23:13 [13] But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven...
  7. The Key of David (Part One)

    Recently someone asked about the key of David which brought back memories of how God first intervened in my life. I'm hopeful we all have had personal moments where odd things, unexplainable moments take place. Maybe we hesitate in calling it a conversation with God where He answers...this was one of those. My memory was shot. Because of an illness I had forgotten how to drive across town to my mother-in-laws home where I had been countless times. In fact at one point we had lived in the old...
  8. Here I Am - Use Me

    For Your life to be seen through me, I’m desperate to know more of You. As I continue to surrender; Do what You desire to do. Let the fragrance that comes from my life, Flow from what You’re doing this day. As I continue to discover the truth - And I learn to walk more in Your way. Identifying those things of my will - And allowing Your work to be done. So that as I live out this life - Your will and my will - become one. And then I’ll walk in the fruit that does last - Reflecting You -...
  9. His Promise - True

    Acknowledging pain in this Mother’s heart While questions rise in my mind. At what crossroads, did they really depart? Truthful answers will I ever find? Oh, Lord what do You say to do while we heal? “Remember I’m redeemer and high tower Remember I lived and died, it was real Was all to include in this hour. Do you think there is one thing that I do not see? The terror, the doubt, and the tears? Finally, when you yield on bended knee It is then, I’ll redeem all the years. I’ll bring you...

  11. Peel Me Back

    Peel Me Back by Judy Hicks God peel me back That which I’ve known ‘me’ to be. Until I reach raw honesty and authenticity with You – Connected and intimate. Help me unravel these decades of ‘sound bites’ of existence – Until I know and connect once again with You as my source. You’re the one who planted this spirit in the womb With intention and purpose for good. Help me develop the capacity and wisdom To hear and yield only to Your direction. Uncover, as only You can do, with detailed...
  12. Lust: the way that leads to death. (Part One)

    In the wilderness they tempted the Lord by asking for meat. Psalm 78:17-19 [17] And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. [18] And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. [19] Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? And God gave them their own desires. Yet, while the meat was in their mouths, the wrath of God came upon them and slew the fattest of them...for this work God did before...
  13. “Lord, teach us to pray”

    Maybe we have it memorized but how often do we pay attention to the words that we speak? Luke 11:1-4 “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. [2] And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. [3] Give us day by day our daily bread. [4] And forgive...
