Stand..

Stand up for righteousness and be called self righteous, call out sin and be called a pharisee, preach on obedience and be called legalistic, preach on holiness and be called holier than thou. Press on, fight the good fight, Jesus never said it would be easy, just worth it.

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing!

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Dying shed His precious blood
How His kindness yet pursues me
Mortal tongue can never tell
Clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me
I cannot proclaim it well

That day when freed from sinning
I shall see Thy lovely face
Clothed then in blood washed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry
Take my ransomed soul away
Send Thine angels now to carry
Me to realms of endless day

Your storm is not the issue!

(Originally posted on The Devotion Cafe)

Matthew 14:29-32 (KJV) says “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Yesterday’s Trivia Question: How many disciples did Jesus start out with? Answer: He called 12 men to follow Him.

Peter looked at the drawing broad and he became afraid of the winds  and what looked liked a storm surrounding him. Jesus was developing Peter for his walk with the Lord. But Peter allowed his fear to over take him. And so Jesus reached out and caught him. When we find ourselves worry over an issue several things happen. First we assume that God is not listening, we began to talk to anyone who would give an ear to our situation. Even then we aren’t satisfied so we go back to the drawing board. We start looking at the board and examine it like we are detectives, we ask ourselves did we do this? Did we do that?

It’s never about the storms we face it has nothing to do with it. It’s about what God is trying to get through us. Naturally  we think our situation seems hopeless. If we would just open our spiritual eyes one will see that God is maturing you.

We waste too much time on our circumstances while playing detectives on our drawing broad that we can’t see pass our nose.
