Grace Prayer

“My Children, You all hold hands round ‘the table’ and you give thanks for the food, that I have prepared for you, (that you CAN see), and in doing this, you do right. Because in giving thanks you recognise that ‘ALL’ that comes to you is from MY hands. Though I do not need you […]

The Overshadowing of God’s Personal Deliverance

. . . I am with you to deliver you,’ says the Lord — Jeremiah 1:8 God promised Jeremiah that He would deliver him personally—”. . . your life shall be as a prize to you . . .” (Jeremiah 39:18 ). That is all God promises His children. Wherever God sends us, He will […]

Evil is the absence of God?

What I had trouble with from the beginning reading that, was the “absence of God.” I could not fathom it. And yet the more I let it sit there, it began to occur to me that even though there can really never be, anywhere, anytime, any place, an absence of God, yet to a creature, […]

The Glory of the Unlikely (Revised)

Original by Glenn Davis. Perhaps the great glory of Christmas is that in the birth of His only Begotten, the Lord revealed to us that He is the God of the “unlikely”… For how unlikely is it that the King of the cosmos should be born in a stable normally reserved for animals which children’s […]

Eternal Reality

The realm of the spirit, the singular realm, is eternal reality. That is where our spirit being lives, and where our true identity is settled forever. The realm of appearance, although we must live in it in the here and now, is false as far as our identity goes. All of life depends on which […]

Running from God

Running from God is a learned behavior. As we get older our understanding of God is altered from a God who is present with us, pursuing us, to a God who is distant —- a God who only shows up on Sunday mornings at church. Instead of a God who is running after us, trying […]

Divinely Arranged, Beautifully Timed

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time… Nothing happens to you by accident when you have God in your life. Even a “chance” meeting with someone is part of His plan to set in motion His blessings in your life. Such was the divinely arranged meeting of the Shunammite woman and Prophet […]

Seek God’s Kingdom

You ask, ‘‘How do I work out my salvation?’’ First seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness. ‘‘Shall I confess my sin?’’ First seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness. “Shall I repent?’’ No, seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness. “Shall I give all my possessions to the poor?” “No, you shall first seek God’s kingdom and […]
