Destiny Allowed?

•June 22, 2017 • 1 Comment

I read a quote from Paul Louise Cole – “what you allow to define you determines your destiny!”

I’m so all over this in my “faith” walk with Jesus!

You “internally” is what God is focused mostly on – what drives you or holds you back from the inside determines your trajectory towards your destiny – good stuff or bad stuff, good destiny or bad!

Some can wear their pain, or hurts, or trauma, or struggle, or neglect, or abandonment, or fear, at most, like some kind of badge of honor, or at least carry it saying “well this is who I am!”  Which translated can say “this is what makes me who I am.” Like we have some kind of quirky affection for our damage or restriction – we may even give it a medical term as if that name was higher than the Throne of God!  I am not saying we shouldn’t love ourselves right where we are in God, in life, on our journey – however I am saying, lets get free of the things that hold us back that have a grip on us and hi-jack  our incredible destiny taking it to a destiny that is molded by restrictions and restraints.

To be honest, hell and/or this world we live in doesn’t really care – but God does!

Hell and/or this world doesn’t care if you get stalled in the waters of your life, adrift, becalmed, without direction or passion or faith!

But God does!     06.22 destiny BLOG

The Apostle Paul said something quite extraordinary to the church at Corinth

2 Corinthians 6:12  (NKJV)

     You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.

Wow!  Restricted from what?  Their (our) goals, our walk with God, our full and uncluttered, unhindered destiny!

Paul goes on to list a few of their affections, according to what he knew of their lives.  Well, we can do a wee exercise ourselves – we can get in a place of quiet with God, and take a look at ourselves in His Presence.  You and God together can get some stuff sorted!  Look, most Christians at this stage would be yelling the words “it’s sin, it’s sin!”  –  that may not necessarily be true – but go for it.

Whatever you have let define you will determine your destiny!  Thanks Paul and thanks Paul Louise Cole!

God is amazing!

No Alarmists!

•June 8, 2017 • 1 Comment

Can we stop with being alarmists?  Please, just for 6 months?  It’s incredible!

So many people sounding the horn of alarm!  As if they have been appointed to be holders of the “holy grail” of truth (lower case for a reason!).

Can we stop with the fear driven responses to life please!

Can we stop with all the conspiracy theories please!

The over-reactions are overwhelming!

It’s creating contentions where there shouldn’t be any!

It’s stealing all the joy out of life!

That’s hell’s plan, leave it alone!

 

This is what God says!

06.08 belief BLOG

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

 

 

It’s time to believe “fear” is a spirit, it’s time to trust that God AND His sacred scripture is true and that fear is . . .

F (false),    E (evidence),    A (appearing),    R (real).

If something is going on that needs our attention, God will get our attention!  Then we just rise to the occasion and crank it up!

That sounds like “a sound mind” to me.

Maybe this is more the truth . . . F (face), E (everything), A (and), R (rise)!!  With God in the middle of your everything of course!

 

Because – God is amazing!

Belief!

•May 25, 2017 • 2 Comments

I loved one of Pastor Brian Houston’s Tweets today.

BELIEF:05.28 belief BLOG
– Determines your future
– Defines your mentality
– Decides what you put faith in
– Delivers your expectations!
 

I agree entirely with the above . . . AND . . . I just thought I would think on it for a while!

So . . . I like to reverse out scripture or spiritual principles from time to time and see what it looks like – you know, the promises of God in reverse!

So . . . If you’re believing your life is depressing then; that will determine your future will be depressing, it will define your mentality – you will be depressed, it will decide what you put your faith in – nothing, there’s no reason to, your money will be on . . . life’s depressing, and it will deliver your expectation that more depressing life is on the horizon and that I am guaranteed to get more of a depressing life, and yup, here it is!

You can insert all kinds of words into the above tweet from Pastor Brian, anything people are choosing to believing in – you will see the results quickly.  Why is that?  Because the tweet is based upon the principles of God.

Why not believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit – they have written their promises in blood!  Woah!  They will never abandon you, they will set you free from your bondage, they will exchange the heavy burdens you’re yoked to for a light yoke and stick some amazing heaven born supernatural stuff inside you that makes you the incredible person your were designed to be – in EVERY way!

Now that’s worth shouting about!!!!

God is amazing!

Meet God!

•May 19, 2017 • 1 Comment

The shortest “Quick Thought” ever from me!!!

What would you rather do?

1. Sit around hearing about God.

or

2. Meet God!

05.19 approachable God BLOG

Ephesians 3:12 (NLT)

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.

I choose 2. I choose 2!!!!  Every time!

Meet God?

We can, we should!

The difference between attending church and doing church are these questions, “are we in God’s Presence – have we approached Him – has He approached us?”

I don’t want church any other way – how about you?

Let’s meet God!

God is amazing!

I want what He wants?

•April 27, 2017 • 1 Comment

I read a tweet last week – I think it was from Pastor Brian Houston in Sydney – “If it matters to God, I want it to matter to me!”

What a great “heart” position to place ourselves in.

I want to be moved by what moves God.

04.27 what He wants - BLOG

Luke 19:41 (NIV)

41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it

 

 

We can be so jaded in this crazy world, with 180 degree opinions flying all over the place and people getting very septic towards one another – but lets stop, get with God, re position, get His view, His heart and move from there.

I want what He wants!

God is amazing!

Liar, Lunatic or Lord!

•April 13, 2017 • 1 Comment

Easter is on us!  And as a believer I am again hoping that dozens of my friends, my (all- over-the-planet) family and my city will flock into church and get “it” – what is it?

Hmmmm, good question.  Well . . . maybe we can start with C. S. Lewis, he’s always good to start with – as he studied the Bible he had a deep and very intelligent determination to find conclusively that Jesus was a fraud, the Bible was fiction and all Christians had their heads in the sand.

04.16 Liar Lunatic or Lord - BLOG

He surmised, somewhere along his journey, that he had to determine one of three positions for this “saviour” person.  Jesus was either a liar, a lunatic, or Lord.  While he had his head in the Bible chasing the truth about all “this” Christianity and it’s founder, something happened . . . he got “it!”

“It” arrived in his life – unimaginably “it” landed in and on C. S. Lewis the scholar, the cerebral genius!

How does “it” arrive – how did “it” arrive on C. S.?

Check this out – it’s amazing!

Jesus asked Peter “who am I?”  Peter responded “the Son of God, the anointed one, the messiah!”  Jesus then asked “who told you this?

Matthew 16:17(NIV)

17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.

C. S. had “it” all revealed to him directly from heaven, from God Himself.  All he had to do was position himself!

Best position this Sunday!  Got to church!  See if “it” lands – better still (because I’m incredibly biased!)  come to http://www.truenorthchurchfrisco.com/ or catch us on Facebook Live or Livestream!

“It” will land, because God shows up, He cant help Himself –  He loves us so much He sent Jesus!

God is amazing!

Seeds Planted By Our Lips?

•April 7, 2017 • 1 Comment

Here’s something that I am more and more aware of in our culture and in my own life.

Proverbs 18:20 (NIV)

20 From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled;
    with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied.

     04.07 seeds - BLOG

It’s that we plant God has thrown a principle into life that we need to be more aware of all the time – that what we speak creates a harvest that we walk into further down the track of life.  Seeds (words of judgment, words that belittle ourselves and others or highlight negative or dark moments and more!) get planted and eventually grow into a living tree that bears fruit as a harvest in our life.

So the question would be: have we planted great seeds or seeds that might bear a harvest we’re not really wanting to get used to their fruit.

I want to be satisfied with a stomach (life) filled with awesomeness – just how God has planned it for me.

So what seeds are we planting with our mouths?

Seeds of grace, love, encouragement, compassion, to name just a few, would be a great start right?

God is amazing!
