We are not alone.

Our circumstances do not confirm or deny God. How we persevere and bear fruit in spite of our challenges testifies that God is real with the power to save us.

The original mandate to Adam when God said, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it...” has not changed. (Genesis 1:28-30)God repeats His directive to Noah after he leaves the ark. (Genesis 9:1-7) From the Tower of Babel to the dislocating of the Jews to all the earth in response to their rebellious ways; God has been participating in helping this mandate to be fulfilled.

A thought to consider for today.

What does it mean to live life God's way? It means that our mind is open to receiving the guidance God gives us through His Word and to let the Holy Spirit teach us how it applies to our real everyday life with all of the challenges we face. Since the foundation of our life is now based on God's perfect love for us the only way we can learn what this is and looks like is to receive this kind of love from God.

As we learn to recognize His love for us we begin to recognize it in others. This is how we are able to distinguish from the worlds concept of what love is and the real thing.

A thought to consider for today.

As Christians, we all are capable of true spirituality. Many of us are confused about what true spirituality is about. We often confuse spirituality with achieving personal goals and self improvement agendas. Whereas true spirituality is about a growing oneness with God. The benefits of self-improvement through transformation and attaining the reality of our hearts desires are all an effect of getting to know the persons of God, personally.

The person of God we often overlook or take for granted is the one closest to us in every way.

A thought to consider for today.

It is impossible to please God without faith. He rewards all who seek Him. A spiritual awakening occurs when God gives us a greater revelation of who He is.
 
As Christians, many of us are waiting for our own mountaintop experience that takes us further into a life in Jesus. This is represented in Luke chapter 9:28-36. About 8 days after Peter's confession that Jesus is the Christ, we are told of the transfiguration of Jesus. Jesus takes his disciples, Peter, John and James up on a mountain to pray.

A thought to consider for today.

Our attitude is a choice that has everything to do with us individually and absolutely nothing to do with our circumstances. We are the salt and a light in the darkness.

Our thought life has everything to do with our ability to receive and reflect the goodness of God. When we are bound up in what "we can't do" we are rejecting the power of God in our life. When we declare what "God in us can do" we are operating in His power not our own strength. We are moving from glory to glory, growing and transforming into the image of our One, True, Faithful, Trustworthy King.

A thought to consider for today.

Our God uses our freedoms to teach us what true freedom really is. When we freely choose to live our life God's way He changes our heart and we have peace, joy... .

This is not accomplished through the effort of our own strength and will. If it is, it leads us into legalism and duty instead of the joy in life through our relationship with the Living God. If in our heart we want to live our life His way, He changes us to become willing.

If we are willing He enables us to make forward progress through our hearts desire leading us.

A thought to consider for today.

As a child of God, we are to be obedient to the commands He has given us in the Holy Bible. This is where we find the guidance for how to live all of life His way and not our way. Jesus tells us that if we love Him and want to enter into life then we will obey the commandments.

When we walk in obedience to the instruction He has given us in the Holy Bible we are given a promise from God. This promise is that we will be able to live life to the fullest, prospering in every way and that we will bear much fruit.

A thought to consider for today.

1 Peter 1:13-15
"Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace given to you when Jesus Christ is revealed. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all that you do; for it is written: “Be holy because I am holy.”

As Jesus said on the cross, “It is finished.” And it is on God’s end. On our end we still have choices to make. God has already made His.

A thought to consider for today.

1 Corinthians 2:7
"We speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began" 

Seeking wisdom is like seeking a hidden treasure. When we are looking for a treasure, especially treasure on which our life depends, what do we do? 

We don't give up after five minutes. We keep on mining. We keep on digging. We keep on searching. We do this because it is as if our life depends on it. So we are persistent, committed, and disciplined in our search for this treasure.

A thought to consider for today.

Jesus, the Holy One of God, has paid the additional price required to restore our freedom to us. This is the blood sacrifice He willingly made for us as we wounded Him, the seven wounds He bore for us on the cross. The seven places Jesus shed His blood to restore us to our original condition, free from all bondage are:
 
1) The Garden of Gethsemane, where He sweats drops of blood to redeem our will.
          
2) At the whipping post, His stripes redeem us from sickness.
