You Were Created To Praise God

You Were Created To Praise God

You Were Created To Praise God

As we finish the Psalms I could not help but to reflect on what we had just read. A good portion of the Psalms are praises to GOD. Great men and women lifted their voices in prayer and praises to their Creator. They reflected on His great works or just exalted His majesty.
Have you also noticed that a good majority of the Psalms focus on nature in relationship to it’s Creator? Psalm 148 is a great example of this:
1 Praise the LORD from the heavens,
praise him in the heights above.
3 Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.
5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for he commanded and they were created.
7 Praise the LORD from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
Have you ever received some flowers from someone? Or have you ever been walking or driving and seen the moon at it’s fullest on a bright and clear night? When you see these things of beauty do you ask, what is it’s purpose? Or do you just sit and appreciate it’s beauty for what it is?
I believe that sometimes we get so wrapped up in trying to serve GOD. I know that at times in my life I have felt like I need to do more and more to make GOD happy and take pleasure in me. We were made to praise GOD. By praising GOD, we are fulfilling our purpose. Just as the flower simply showing it’s beauty to GOD fulfills it purpose and brings pleasure to GOD. We were made to praise and worship HIM, by doing simply that, we are fulfilling our purpose and pleasing GOD.
Sounds pretty easy, does it not? So, do you spend some time each day, praising HIM? Not asking for this or that, just saying, “Wow GOD, you ARE amazing! Today, I noticed the amazing sunset you ended the day with, thank you!” I would encourage you each day to spend some time doing just that, praising HIM.

Search Me O God

Search Me O God

Search Me O God

Search Me O God

I was reading Psalm 139, and the idea that the writer was trying to express would either be very comforting, or it could be very scary. Here are the verses that got me thinking:

1 O LORD, you have searched me
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

To the writer, there is no escape from the knowledge of GOD. GOD knows everything there is to know about him, even his words before they are spoken. He then goes onto to say that he tried to think about the majesty of this knowledge, but it goes beyond his human understanding. The writer understands that GOD KNOWS all, and he is OK with that fact. In fact the writer finishes with asking GOD to search him and reveal ANYTHING that GOD views offensive.

Do you have the same frame of mind? Are you OK with GOD knowing everything that is going on in your head and your heart? There is a big difference between a religion and a relationship. Most Christians today have a religion, and are not too sure about the relationship part.

Here might be a good analogy that might help you understand the concept of this. Imagine if your spouse, be it a husband or wife, or your parents, Imagine they knew everything that you thought and that was in your heart. To many, I am sure, that concept would scare them. If your spouse or parents were able to know your thoughts, I am sure that you would try very hard to keep your thoughts good and pure.

The same holds true to Christ, except He really does know all your thoughts. In fact, in our minds, anytime we put something before Christ, we make that item or thought an idol, which the Bible refers to as spiritual adultery. We all should be working on a more deeper relationship with Christ, which starts with being absolutely honest with GOD, and spending time in HIS word, which will lead us to being made more like Christ. Make sense?

Are You A Toxic Christian?

Are You A Toxic Christian?

Are You Toxic?

Are You Toxic?

Kim and I were out running errands a couple of days ago. While we were driving we passed a church, with a large sign on the front of it. I looked at it quickly, then I had to do a double take to actually read the sign. When I actually saw what the sign said, my heart was broken and angered at the same time. Here is what this LARGE sign said that was smack in the front of the church.

NO SKATEBOARDING
NO ROLLERBLADES
NO BICYCLES

I do now know why they did not say:

NO KIDS
NO FUN
GO AWAY

This is a subject that GOD has laid dear to my heart; Toxic Christianity & Toxic Churches. Do you know that it has been said that 8 out of 10 churches are dead or dying? How sad is that? There used to be a time that Christianity was the religion of choice. When a person wanted to search for GOD, they would have tried a Christian Church. But that is not the case today. Christianity is just a choice among many religions and gods.

We had one of our good friends prove this. Her daughter went through a shooting at a shopping mall, as you could imagine she was very shaken up. So she went searching for something……. she had a Buddhist saying tattooed on her back. The comment of her parents is that they were glad she found some god and religion. With the statement like the one above, no wonder she found accepting Buddhists.

Some of our churches have become toxic. They are so focused on them and looking inward, that they have totally missed Jesus’ last command. They are more concerned with looking good, what type of music fits ME, and not accepting people that are not like them or that would fit into their church mold. What our culture is boiling down to is our Christian Churches do not carry the weight it used to, WE have to carry that weight. We have to be shinning examples of Jesus love and acceptance. Who did Jesus hang out with? The pretty, religious people? Or the lost, hurting, ugly, prostitutes?

You might be saying “What can I do”? Hopefully you are involved in a church that is carrying out Acts 29. One good gauge is to look at your baptisms, do you have them regularly? If not can you remember the last one you had? WE have to be the example of Christianity, church or no church, we need to reach out to the lost, the kids, and hurting of our culture. OK, OK, OK…. I could go on and on.

I believe that you are going to see a shift in our churches in the future. I think that you will see more mini missions going out into the people, instead of waiting for the people to come to them. One good example is a link that Donna sent me yesterday. It is Skate Disciples. A father and son mission to reach the young skateboarders. This is an awesome example of reaching out to a certain group of people that are lost and mislead, showing Christs’ love and acceptance. Awesome job guys! So, where are you on the toxic meter?

Knowing The Purpose Of Your Pain

For the past couple of days we have researched “Why bad things happen?” I was just thinking how this question lines up with the Psalms. Most of the Psalms are humanity crying out to GOD, for situations that are happening beyond their control, such as King David being chased by men wanting to kill him, hiding out in caves. In today’s devotional I wanted to look at the hope we Believers have in Christ when these situations happen.

I have heard a statement this last weekend that made an impact on me. A guy that I was talking to, said that he could endure life’s “Whys” if he knew the purpose of them.

He had a good point, we humans live out life in either the past, present, or future. In the present when we are going through one of life’s “Whys”, it hurts and we can’t see the future or know how this is going to effect the future, so we want GOD to be our puppet and have HIM fix it now. We usually do not remember the past to see how we have gone through situations like this, survived, see how GOD was always with us, grown in faith, and one step closer to being more like Christ.

GOD lives in all three; past, present, and future. A good example of this is, if you ever taped a football game on the TV while you were at work; But, when you were driving home you heard the score and all the big plays made during the game. When you get home you can watch the tape, but, you know the final outcome. GOD is a some cosmic way is doing the same thing, He knows He plays in your life, and HE is watching your life being played out. He knows the outcome and where He has allowed and protected you from situations that will produce HIS final outcome for your life; to be like Jesus.

In closing I wanted to leave you with two thoughts: If your a believer you ALWAYS have eternal hope. These few years that GOD has given us here on earth will hardly compare to the joy that we are going to have spending an eternity with Christ. I know that when you are going through a rough time, it seems like forever. Try and always keep focused on the end of the race, try to imagine how amazing it will be to be at the feet of Jesus, meeting Moses, King David, and all your other favorites. People that do not have Jesus, yes these situations could crush you, that is why it is so important for us to give as many as you can Jesus’ hope.

The other thought is off a verse that I am sure you have heard before, and maybe it has been told to you when you were struggling. I know that while I was very sick, a lot of people quoted this verse. I hope to maybe bring some new light to this verse: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28

There are two key phrases that I am not sure if you caught in the above verse. The first one is We Know. There are not many things in life that we KNOW, but Paul is stating here that he KNOWS this to be true. That is a very bold and confident statment.

The second is All Things. “All Things” are everything that is good from GOD that HE gives you, plus all the bad things you may or may not cause to happen. So, to give us some hope for the tough times of life, Paul states that EVERYTHING that will happen to you in your life, GOD will use for good at sometime, maybe not in the present, but in the future. Have a great day.

Is Your Free Will A Good Thing or A Bad Thing?

Is Your Free Will Good or Bad?

As we spoke yesterday, in Genesis, GOD created the Heavens and Earth Genesis 2:2-3. GOD FINISHED HIS work and it was good. GOD gave us everything that we needed to live with HIM. Notice that GOD on the 8th day did not create airplanes, cars, spaceships, guns, bombs, knifes, swords, chemicals….. the list could just go on and on.

I believe that if GOD had wanted us to have these things, HE would have given them to us in the beginning. GOD gave us everything we needed to have a fruitful life in HIM. GOD intended life to be like this from the beginning. In fact if you remember that GOD was extremely disappointed with us that HE was set to destroy all mankind…… until Noah and GOD’s grace and mercy came into play, and GOD “Started Over” with Noah and family.

Humanity has a problem. We are never satisfied with what we have, we always want more, plus humanity desires to be GOD, then throw in our free will that GOD gave us and you have bad situations that we ask, “Why GOD?”. Here is an example, if GOD gave us everything we needed in the beginning, then GOD did not intend for us to fly. But, we, wanting to be more like GOD and wanting more, build this huge metal shell, put engines on it, and hurl it though space.

One time this metal shell with engines crashes into the earth killing everyone on board. So, we become angry at GOD and say, “How could you let this happen?” GOD looks down on us and says, “I never intended you to fly in the first place, it was your free will that chose to create such a machine. Your machines are not perfect and are going to fail, I am the only thing that is perfect.”

Free will is a double edged sword. We want to have our free will, but when something bad happens we do not want to take the responsibility for the choices of that free will. It will make your brain hurt if you think about it for too long. 🙂 I know what it is like driving across country, our planes are a wonderful invention. But, I find myself as I am getting older, desiring a more pure life with Christ. I find myself taking my free will out of it, and replacing it with HIS. Would I want to go back to the way it was with Adam and Eve…….. honestly yes.

Have you ever noticed that when GOD does some work in your heart, it is never just one thing. For me it seems to always be a series of events or heart changes. This past week has been a tough one for me. Plus, when you are going through these adjustments, does not satan always seem to do his work too. He tries to get you down and feeling discouraged about yourself.

I am somewhat of a work-a-holic. For me (maybe you can identify with me) I feel that I need to get certain things done for the day. I feel that if I do not make progress with work in someway, I will not provide for my family and we will not make enough money to support us. (Did you notice how many times I said I?) 

Sometimes “Life” happens and we do not get enough work done, this stresses me out. I become focused and the stress seems to keep building and building up. I become a jerk to Kimmy, and not much fun to be around with anyone. My focus turns from GOD to me and what I need to accomplish. If you think about this, my problem is that I am not trusting GOD to provide for my needs.

There are two thoughts that I would like to make. Today, The Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me these things.

He reminded me of how Jesus fed the 5,000. How many fish and bread did Jesus start out with? Matthew 14:16-17 Jesus had 5 loaves and 2 fish, and He fed ALL those people, WOW. The point that The Holy Spirit was making to me, is that Jesus does not need much from me to provide for me and my family. He does not need me to work tons of hours and enter tons of items. He will provide for me with very little.

So, if you are in your life and you are stressed about making it, and you are working more and more and more, Jesus will provide for you, put your priority on Him and have the faith that He will come through. Read Matthew 6:25-34 I LOVE this passage!

The other thought that I had, if you become as stressed out as I was. Take some time off, refocus with your family and GOD. You will be amazed what a difference it makes, and do not be surprised if while you are resting in the LORD and your family, GOD is still working for you and providing for you.

I did this today and spent some time with Kimmy, I could feel myself clam down and refocus on HIM!

Has God Moved in Your Life?

Insight Into the Scriptures Numbers 32-33

The transjordan had a wide range of topography. Some of the places were, Mount Hermon range, it’s highest peak is 9,230 feet above sea level. The rift valley extends south following the Jordan River to the Dead Sea – 2,550 feet below sea level. East of the Jordan were the hills of the Gilead, it rose to 3,500 feet above sea level.

As you are reading the text for today, you will read at the end of Chapter 33 where God gives very specific instructions for entering the promised land. He also warns Israel of the consequences for not following His instructions. Of course, Israel did not follow and they suffered for their actions. it is very important that we follow God’s plans exactly as He has laid them out.

Scripture Reading

2 At the LORD’s command Moses recorded the stages of their journey. This is their journey by stages:

3 The Israelites set out from Rameses on the fifteenth day of the first month, the day after the Passover. They marched out boldly in full view of all the Egyptians, 4 who were burying all their firstborn, whom the LORD had struck down among them; for the LORD had brought judgment on their gods.

5 The Israelites left Rameses and camped at Succoth.

6 They left Succoth and camped at Etham, on the edge of the desert……..

37 They left Kadesh and camped at Mount Hor, on the border of Edom. 38 At the LORD’s command Aaron the priest went up Mount Hor, where he died on the first day of the fifth month of the fortieth year after the Israelites came out of Egypt.

Think n Grow

How is your spiritual life? Are you in a peak or valley right now? If you read chapter 33 Moses recorded 40 years worth of travels. If Moses did not record his travels it would be hard to gauge all the progress the Israelites made. Do you have a way of recording your spiritual journey? I can’t tell you how important it is to keep a journal or diary of some kind. A couple of years ago by the advice of my pastor, I started a journal. I would not write in it everyday, but every couple of days. Today I look back at my journal and I am amazed at the journey God has taken me on, and how faithful He has been. The best part of my journal is, I would write down when I was stressed or what I was worried about, then I would write when God answered my prayers or when I had stopped worrying about the situation. It truly is amazing, God came through all the time….. All the time. Sometimes His answer was not what I thought it would have been, it was even more!

If you do not have a journal, I would encourage you to start one, you will find it to be inspiring during times of trouble and stress. You will see how much you grow in the Lord and how He spoke to you. It’s a great place to just tell God everything, no holds barr, noone else has to read it, it is just for you and God. You will truly be amazed at what you see, learn and hear from Holy Spirit.

Closing Prayer

My Heavenly Father,You are an amazing and awesome God, can I say that enough? I am so thankful for the joy only You can place in my heart. Father as I travel on my continuous journey, I pray You will be my only guide and that I will hear Your footsteps and Your rustling of the bushes. I pray that I hear Your whispers of encouragement and love so that I can press on and give glory to You.

I love You!!

In Your Name I pray, Amen

Has God God Moved in Your Life?

Is Your Prayer Life One Sided?

Insight Into the Scriptures Numbers 16-18

The function of incense censers was to serve as portable altars. Burning incense purifies the area of the altar and signifies God’s presence.

Moses really is an amazing man. Moses is only doing what God called him to do, he is being obedient to God. But, all the Israelites can do is complain to him about God and how unfair things are. Moses in his wisdom falls to the ground and prays on the Israelites behalf, they were very lucky that God chose Moses as their leader.

Scripture Reading Numbers 14:1-4, 10-14, 26- 35

1 That night all the people of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. 2 All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert!

3 Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites. 11 The LORD said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.”

26 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron:

27 “How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites. 28 So tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very things I heard you say: 29 In this desert your bodies will fall— every one of you twenty years old or more who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against me. 30 Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. 31 As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected. 32 But you—your bodies will fall in this desert. 33 Your children will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the desert. 34 For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.’ 35 I, the LORD, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this desert; here they will die.”

If you saw the movie Bruce Almighty, you might remember the part where Jim Carrey is filling in for God while He takes a vacation. Jim Carrey who thinks God’s job will be easy, is soon bombarded by prayer requests, he takes all night to answer all the requests, only to find out in the morning he is bombarded by one million more prayer requests, and these requests are only from one square block! The point here is just think how many requests are lifted up to God in one minute? Now, think how many of those requests are complaints…..we do not have enough money, You are not being fair, why does she get the promotion, why am I still living in this dump…. I am sure that you can come up with some on your own, I know that I could.

Prayer is a wonderful, and amazing way of communicating with God, but, how is your prayer life? Does it go something like this? “Dear God, please help Sue to figure out what is bugging her so she will stop annoying me, we need more money this month so we can go on that vacation, help John he is ill…….. hmmm bless my cat and dog. Amen”God wants you to talk to Him, but are your prayers one sided? Are they all about you? Or do you take time to praise and thank Him? Do you take time to listen? The Israelites complained and complained, finally God gave them over to what they had been complaining about, now they really had something to grumble about! I encourage you to examine your prayer life, is it one sided?

Closing Prayer

My Heavenly Father,

Thank You Father for the many blessings everyday that I receive. Father I am sorry for the small and insignificant prayers I pray sometimes, the ones that are meaningless and human. Father please forgive me for my many sins and I pray that You will help me to seek You more and step back, take a deep breath and realize exactly what is out there that You have given me. I pray that I always see everything and if I don’t, I thank You for all the things that I am not worthy but You so generously give. I love You!!

In Your Name I pray, Amen

Do You Put God In A Box?

Think n Grow

When you are reading Chapter 11, you will read that God came down in the form of a cloud, He took some of His spirit and put it on the seventy elders. We have an amazing gift; God’s Spirit. I have to keep reminding myself that these Old Testament followers did not have the Holy Spirit as we do today.10:25 “Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. And as soon as the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied. But they did not continue doing it”.

Scripture Reading Numbers 11:18- 23

“And say to the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat, for you have wept in the hearing of the LORD, saying, “Who will give us meat to eat? For it was better for us in Egypt.” Therefore the LORD will give you meat, and you shall eat.

You shall not eat just one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the LORD who is among you and have wept before him, saying, “Why did we come out of Egypt?”

“But Moses said, “The people among whom I am number six hundred thousand on foot, and you have said, ‘I will give them meat, that they may eat a whole month!’Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, and be enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, and be enough for them?”And the LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’s hand shortened? Now you shall see whether my word will come true for you or not.”

Thought For The Day

As I was reading the passage above where God told Moses that He was going to supply meat for the Israelites. Not just for a day, but for a whole month, and not just a quail per person, but enough so that they would be stuffed. That did not surprise me, what did surprise me was Moses’ response. Moses questioned God where and how he was going get all that meat. This is after all the incredible miracles that God has done for them.

We tend to put God into our box. God is beyond anything that our human minds can imagine, so we shrink Him down into our box so we can better grasp Him. There are two thoughts that came to mind from this.

If you are dedicated to Christ and you know in your heart you try very hard to serve Christ, I would expect alot from Him. I am not saying that you want a million dollars, that goes against what Christ teaches. But, do not limit Him or put Him in your box. God wants to bless you and see you happy, think big. Do not limit your blessings, think God size, think over flowing.

If you are in the opposite stage of life, where you are in a desperate situation. You do not see the light at the end of the tunnel, you have given up hope, your situation is impossible, and you have thought of all the possible answers, that is it! Always remember, nothing is impossible with God, He is thinking outside of your box. Just like Moses could not see a way of feeding all those people, God had already had Moses answer. If you are stuck in that kind of situation, God already knows your answer, maybe all He needs is for you to trust outside of your box.

My Heavenly Father,

Thank you Father for always loving me so much, please help me to remember that You are always there for me. Father I pray that I will focus on You and not what I think I can do. Help me to think outside of the box and know that whatever You have planned, whatever is Your will that is the best. I just need the courage and strength to wait. Father i pray today for being able to love my neighbor, especially the ones that are s hard o love. I pray that I can remember how much You love them and I can too. Thank You Father, and know that I love You very much. I am nothing without You!!!

Your Name I pray, Amen

Gods Timing Is Always Perfect

I have read several Christian and Non-Christian Commentaries on the phenomena of the cloud over the tabernacle during the day, then the fire at night. Some say it was a volcano, burning tar pit……. it is just God. You can’t put a finger on God.

Scripture Reading Numbers 9:15- 23

“On the day the tabernacle, the Tent of the Testimony, was set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire.That is how it continued to be; the cloud covered it, and at night it looked like fire.Whenever the cloud lifted from above the Tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped.

At the LORD’s command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp.

When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the LORD’s order and did not set out.

Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the LORD’s command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out.Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out.

Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out. At the LORD’s command they encamped, and at the LORD’s command they set out. They obeyed the LORD’s order, in accordance with his command through Moses.”

Thought for the Day

Today’s thought really goes hand in hand with yesterday’s. If you read the passages above, Moses and the Israelites waited upon the Lord. They would not make a move without God. God chose to be in the form of a cloud during the day and fire during the night. When the cloud moved, His people moved, when God rested, His people rested, God may have been there a day or it may have been a year.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a little cloud. When you saw the cloud move, you moved, and where it rested, you rested. The most perfect place that you can be is in the will of God, move when he moves, rest when He rests. Most of the time we find ourselves restless and wanting to move on, or we find ourselves wanting more. I have found that God’s timing is always perfect, but, if I rush God, He will sometimes let it happen, but it never turns out like I would have liked it too. I am working on being patient :). One thing that has helped me, is if you find yourself stuck for a year or longer in the same place, stop asking God what is next, let’s go, I am ready for the next adventure God. Instead, ask God what is my purpose here in this situation, what do You need me to learn that I am not seeing? Instead of being focused on the future, take off the blinders and look around, you may be missing a miracle going on right around you, but you are to busy to see it.

Closing Prayer

My Heavenly Father,

I pray today Father for our nation. I pray that we, I mean that I, can make small steps out there to shine for You, to help Your kingdom grow. Our children are at so much risk Father, the world is going so wild. I pray for those kids Father that they will have a great person in their lives to help them grow towards You and not the world. And I pray Father that You will help me to help those kids around me, help me to be more like You, You would love them all and help the ones hurting the most. Thank you Father for loving us so much.

I love You!!

In Your Name I pray, Amen
