Waking up the other day in the mountains, I made a beeline for the coffee pot. I quickly grabbed my grinder. I ground a small mountain of beans, placed the coffee in the FILTER, poured the cool water in and pressed the button. What a flavorful aroma! It’s so quick and easy to do, and I anxiously wait for the results. Within minutes I am holding an OVERFLOWING cup of relief in my hands. Soon, my groggy and mushy mind is alert and powered up, ready to go and take on the day. The lure of caffeine can be addicting. And the funny thing is caffeine works for me, every time. The habit is not one I want to break.
Forgive us God that We the Church really don’t typically wake up and make a beeline for You, Your Word or Your Holy Spirit.
Forgive us God that We the Church have groggy and mushy minds when it comes to Your One and Only truth, and are easily deceived. (1 Timothy 4:1)
Forgive us God that We the Church want easy, quick results to ease our pain, so we become anxious and don’t’ wait patiently. (Psalm 139:23,24)
Maybe We forgot that You like to give OVERFLOWING cups of relief in our hearts, We just need to ask. (Romans 15:13)
Maybe We forgot that You offer to pour Your cool living water into us. We just need to press the button of repentance, and run it through Your FILTER of forgiveness.
Maybe We forgot that Your love is a lure, addicting and works for Us, every time.
You may be on a mountain of hopelessness. You may be on a mountain of debt.
You may be on a mountain of confusion.
Even though those mountains seem big to You, He is BIGGER than those mountains.
Jesus has a supernatural grinder. And He is willing to quickly grab it for You.
Give Him your beans of hopelessness; He will grind out His Hope.
Give Him your beans of debt; He will grind out His Abundance.
Give Him your beans of confusion; He will grind out His Truth.
Push that button of repentance; let Him FILTER His Mercy and Grace through His Cool Living Water to You.
And You will become a flavorful aroma!!!
Powered Up, Ready to Go and Take on the Day.
This habit that is not one You want to break.
Craig and I are in the beginning stages of planning a 2016 Presidential Debate. We are in the process of inviting the candidates to participate. We hope most show up. This event will be held here in the South Bay. Please pray for candidate’s schedulers to respond to our invites and be available to attend.
Pastors, church elders and board members here in Southern California. Pray specifically for them to stand firm on truth, and to be on their guard regarding deception.
The saints in the church to be alert and on guard, as the enemy prowls around like a lion looking for those he can devour.
Revival here in Southern California. People are broken and hurting. Jesus is their only Hope.
My health. I have been off the grid for a while. I’ve been hit with incredible fatigue and pain. I am going to several doctors. I would like to have the energy to continue to do Victory Updates on a regular basis. I know the Great Physician heals!!!
