I want to tell you about this lesson that I learned. I was pressed and able to come to this conclusion a while ago. I sought the Lord about this situation that I put myself through. Let me tell you I found the answer quickly so I wouldn’t have to experience that situation again.
I have a friend in the Lord that is going through chastising of the Lord because of some very bad decisions he made which involved himself and his family. They were so bad that it broke the family up. It was a very bad situation to say the least...
What do you do when you hit trying times? Do you ask why me? Do you complain to those around you? Do you faint or give up? More still are you a cry baby in God’s kingdom? Or do you hold fast to your confession of faith, enduring hardness as a good soldier?
Jesus is coming! The Word of God says, He shall appear in the clouds with a blast of a trumpet! We that are ready for His appearing will be caught up with Him in the sky where we will be with Him forever. There will be on earth a Tribulation that will last seven years...
I believe we get the point, he says, “Though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ yet ye have not many fathers.” We can only be instructed so far then there is a need of fathers and a need for many...
I’m right in the middle of writing my book “The Character of King David” and it seems we see so many people right in the middle of similar scenarios. In this story, the great King David was fleeing his kingdom because of a rebellious son that wanted to take the kingdom from him.
Today I was sitting with my wife at our favorite catfish restaurant having a discussion about a relationship with a relative of mine. The conversation went like this: Well, I love him but if it wasn’t for his mother who we love, I probably wouldn’t have that much of a relationship with him anymore. But because of her, we apply more grace and more long-suffering; we decide to work it out some more.
When I say “Be ye filled; do not be drunk” I’m not speaking of alcohol only, but be not drunk on food, drugs, sex, the party life, any thing that may be out of control in your life. Our life as Christians should be a life of balance and it should show. I have this saying and I do my best to live by it. My confession is “I want to only be controlled by the Holy Spirit, not controlled by anything else.”
I’ve noticed a few things over the years of ministry in the area of father wounds. First of all, I've noticed that a root of the wound stays there because of un-forgiveness. In our human bodies, God put a natural propensity to heal itself. Hence, we have scabs and the drying and healing of wounds. The same happens in our inner man. But when that natural healing is blocked, hindered, re-opened, the wound festers, right? So it is with the father wound.
My cup of sin was full; it had run it’s course in my life. The Lord decided that it was time for my life to be harvested for the Kingdom of God. So the hedges were removed; the enemy was used to drive me into the arms of Jesus and I went. Sin had caught up with me; so I had no choice but to surrender. I came out with my hands raised up to the Lord and said, "Lord I surrender and I’m still saying it to this day."
The Beatitudes is a beautiful road map that our Lord and Savior created for us as a guide that we can live by. Each one of them can be applied to our daily life. I recommend that we start using this as a list to make sure we are applying them to our life. Now picture yourself on the Sea of Galilee in the tall grass of the rolling hills of Galilee, sitting at the feet of Jesus. Can you see it?
