Jesus Christ for Life in abundance!

Gb_fruit

It’s amazing what people can do when you give them a chance!

Someone looking in on your circumstances can be of great value.

Take for example ‘Business’. It was God’s influence that opened up the right opportunity you are now enjoying. Yes, you were quick to make the right decisions He brought to you, and the right people at the right time to do what was needed. But it was Him who gave you the strength and the wisdom to see the vision that you are now operating under.

Yes you had to be wiling and brave to take the necessary steps forward, but HE did it! Thankfully you were quick to hear the Lords’ prompting and to act on them.

So now it’s your turn to pass on the Baton of Blessing: for every good and perfect gift from our Father of lights.

Spring Cleaning the Mental Clutter

imgres-1If you are like me you’ll have Post It Notes clinging to every available space: at your desk, your computer and beyond. I’ve even found one such preditor clinging to my cheek bone which, when decifered, reminded me to remove the other Post It Note on the back of my wrist, telling me to buy some more Post It notes and sundry stationary whilst in Sainsbury’s.

These spontanious ideas and reminders that promise so much, serve only one purpose and that is to drain me of all mental peace and sanity. The clutter, of course, goes way beyond the office in ever increasing creativity. So much so you may suggest I invest in an electronic devise to remind me of just about anything the ‘Enemy of my Soul’ could possibly cause me to forget. But, I’m sorry, I JUST DON’T DO  ELECTRONIC DEVISES – Why not? Simple reason it would necessitate 4 or 5 Post It Notes just to remind me how to operate the ‘Darned thing! ……. Born out of time, I guess!

How to be free from Indecision, Confusion & Doubt

The Writer of Proverbs put’s it this way…

“There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lords counsel – that will stand.”

images-1As a Born again Christian I have inherited the very ‘Mind of Christ’, through the Word and by His Spirit.

I am beginning to think like Him, speak like Him and Do like Him. This is the Lord’s counsel which is accepted by grace through faith in Him.

It is not found in the ‘daily star-signs’ of my favourite News paper; nor by seeking a ‘word’ from here, there and everywhere.

Truth is, it’s time for me to grow up and seek the counsel of the Holy Spirit; to listen to Him – the still voice of the Holy Spirit – and balance it with Scripture.

“…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:7)

Arise Godly Father Figures in the Church

When we are not affirmed by a Godly ‘father figure’, life can be an up-hill struggle.

0001
God the Father ordained that man should not be alone, but be placed in families where mutual trust and encouragement would be the norm. Our value and worth is related to what we do and how we are nurtured within the context of ‘Family’.

And yet as the very fabric of ‘families in society’ wears so thin, even fathers are now relinquishing their traditional and God made roles of authority and affirmation.

Increasingly marriages are breaking down and children and young adults are growing up without a strong concept of ‘fathering’. It is truly amazing what people can do when they know the strength of a father figure rooting for them.

So, my call is Arise, ‘father figures’ in the church and let us make a positive move to re-dress the balance.”  

God has a treat in store for you!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

The truth though is that if you only keep those plans tucked away inside the pages of your Bible, or hidden in the book shelf, you can pretty much say good-bye to those plans. What a tragic waste of potential!

I have good news for you – “You can have your cake and eat it!” “And enjoy it!”

But first we have to get rid of some religious mind set’s that we Christians tend to wallow in, well I do at least! So what better way to expose the lies of the flesh and the Devil than to recite out loud the Truth!

To be spoken out loud five times each two times a day….

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13

“I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus,” (Phil 3:13)

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, (Eph 2:6)

TheLord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27

Each of of has has a unique Gift fashioned and designed exactly for us alone. It is as individual to us as is our thumb print. And no power in Heaven or Earth can stand against it, nor nullify it.

These God ordained Gifts enables Him to fulfil His purpose and plan for each one of us.It is through us, His people, that He is able to ‘Moves Mountains.’ Through prayer and patience He Heals the sick and brings down unjust Dictators, etc,.

My Mother in Law has a simple yet powerful Gift to encourage folk who are struggling in any area of life; it’s as simple as welcoming the Holy Spirit, opening her mouth and praying. And she will continue un-bated in prayer, until the issue is resolved – no matter how inconvenient it is. She just loves it..!

My own Gifting, I think, is the ability and passion for making-up spontaneous words to gentle music, say during Ministry. I find myself reciting Scripture and prophetic utterance. It’s not that I’d planned it that way, it is simply the Holy Spirit joining in with us, or should I say me joining with Him.

Are you ready for Change, Believer?

Why not make this year the year to make changes.

Look to your heart. What do you want to see happening in the year ahead. What can you choose to put your faith to?

My personal New Year’s challenge is to see people differently; not to see them as they seem to be or as people see them but to see them as God see’s them! And hopefully – eventually – as they would desire to see them selves.

As far as Father God is concerned He see’s each one of us precious in His sight; each of us has a plan and purpose to fulfil. A plan that gives us value and esteem. What a tragedy that so many of us can completely miss God’s Plan for our life.

So, where you think you may have missed your High Calling, remember God say’s He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Meanwhile I have decided to place on my heart one or two people to pray for this year. And to see them as God see’s them.

The Benefits of Waiting on The Lord

cropped-images-1.jpg

“But those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Effortless Progress…

Have you noticed there are people with all kinds of challenging situations going on in their lives and yet they are not dragged down to a lower level of fear. On the contrary, they seem to be positively soaring above their circumstances.

Could it be that they’ve learned to emulate the wisdom of the Eagle – soaring above the high places of world; connecting with the thermals that will take them even higher and higher! A place of effortless mastery.

It is from this place of dominance that the Eagle plummet’s from a great hight to pluck from the skies it’s unsuspecting Pray. In no time at all it’s all over!

So what can we learn from the Wisdom of the Eagles?

Your ‘Thermal’ is a place of authority and grace. It is clearly the place of your anointing and  Gifts. Your ‘Thermal’ could well be for Worship – songs flowing from your heart to the congregation. Your ‘Thermal’ could be for ‘Leadership – encouraging and provoking. Your “Thermal’ Could even be for ‘Finances’ ‘Prayer for Healing, ‘Prophetic Songs’ and for ‘Correction and Rebuke!’

No matter what your Gifting, In Christ you will soar like Wings as Eagles.

 

How to live the Abundant Christian Life

“I have come that they may have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

Abide in the Vine

Abide in the Vine

God, from out of His abundance made us to expect abundance!

The abundant life God the Father bestowed upon His Son, Jesus the Christ, is now shared with those who believe. All we need do is to “Abide in the Vine”.

Jesus is the Vine. And as we dwell in Him, feast on Him and love Him, so we become like Him and partake of all the Blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant.

As sons and daughters of the Most High God we behave like Him, speak like Him and think like Him. In fact we become as He is in this world.

In Him we can do all things through Him who gives us strength.( Philippians 4:13)

But we must believe…

Be Strong in The Lord and in the power of His Might

 I have discovered that to become strong in the Lord means I am not to make any effort to be strong in my self!

images-1In fact I’ve found the very opposite to be true! I have discovered that to be strong in the Lord Jesus is to deny my own strength and trust in His strength alone. His ability to get things done is far more effective than mine.

Read the following Verse… “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; In Him I am strengthened with might according to His glorious power.” 2 Cor :9-8

But as soon as I flip over to my own strength, I am only as able as I can be according to my human ability – which in my case is really very small indeed!

The ‘key’ to unlocking God’s Power and wisdom is to release Jesus by faith. In so doing it is no longer I that lives but Jesus Christ that lives. 1.Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in Jesus,…

I’m no longer wasting time trying to make myself something special. The reality is that In Christ Jesus I already am something special! In Him I am a son of the Most High God. It only now needs for me to believe and release this Truth by continually looking to Jesus. And His Word.

At last, The Secret to Eden is Revealed

RETURN TO EDEN

“Return to Eden is a return to simple relationship with God the Father through faith in Christ Jesus”green_leaf_detail_197175This Blog of letters and pictures is about my own personal experience in seeking God’s Restorative power to cultivate right attitudes of the heart and mind.

Return to Eden is a return to relationship with God the Father – at the heart level. It is to walk with Him and talk with Him – just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

It is to know Him and fellowship with Him in the cool of the

Garden. It is about deep and profound prayer.

Through Jesus we are now able to come right into God the Father’s presence, just as it was in the Garden of Eden – to see Him as He is and to rest in His love.

Christianity is not a Religion of ‘works’ to try appease a harsh and distant God. No! It is about becoming as a child and running into the the arms of the Father;  just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

God is incredibly forgiving and accepting and is not expecting perfection nor piety – simply a realistic and open Father, Son, Daughter relationship.

But how do we get so close to Him and not fear being ‘fried’ in His presence?

The first thing we must do is not be put off by an old image of a harsh and judging God. He relates to us differently now because of the sacrificial offering of His Son, Jesus – who alone died for the forgiveness of sins.

Yes, God is Holy, Righteous and all-powerful but His anger against sin is now paid for at the Cross of Calvary.

We now come to Him by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.

One way of entering into His presence is through Journaling. It is a process of quieting our minds; focussing on Jesus; thanking Him; praising Him and waiting on Him. A picture or thought might come to mind; then write it down. You may simply write a question and wait, with expectation, to hear His reply. Meanwhile, have your pen ready to write what you feel He is saying and to comment if anything comes to mind. If a scriptural verse comes to mind, then write it down.

Ask another question and return to the flow of His presence. Within minutes you may well have a conversation going; or at least a very clear connection with the Father.

Write about what you are concerned about or joyful about, or excited about. He is a loving Father who wants only to reveal His heart to His children. Don’t let the enemy of your soul rob you of this precious moment with the Father. And if He says anything specific about a difficult situation in your life, do pray about it and share it with wise Counsellors for their mature wisdom.

What follows is a short Journaling time I had with the Lord.

“There is a broken bough in a wooded area that makes a perfect resting place. I sit there some mornings gathering my energy for the walk back up the hill towards home. It is my imaginary ‘Garden of Eden’ – a beautiful plateau on the south side of Bath where I live.

One morning I sat there with an old penknife I’d found from my childhood. Strewn all around were dried branches and twigs, and feeling the Lords prompting, I selected a twig so that I might fashion it into an arrow.

The phrase ‘Whittling Stick’ came to mind as I sliced away dried flakes of bark from the twig:

“Whittle away the old dry wood. Make it straight and narrow with a good sharp point”, spoke the Lord to my heart, as though reciting the words of a song.

I repeated the words as I cut away all the bark and smoothed the twig to a long sharp point. Rolling it between my fingers for balance, I then looked down the stem towards an imaginary target in the distance. Yes, it truly was a fine stick, and could well be used as an arrow.

Pleased with my efforts, I asked the Lord what he thought about my stick. His reply came softly to my heart.

“Now you can see what I’m doing with my people”, he began, “I’m fashioning them in My love so that they might serve Me more effectively… I’m removing the dead wood outer layers of self-reliance and I’m straightening the kinks and bumps of sin. I’m smoothing the rough edges of personality problems, and finally, I’m bringing them to a good sharp point so that when I do aim them at My target, they won’t miss! And yes, like you, I am also well pleased with My efforts”.

Scripture Reading:

“He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease” Psalm 107: 35 – 38
