The Silence of God

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Don’t you love it when God makes things so clear that you have no doubt what He is saying to you?  Direction is sure.  We all love it when as we say, “There is the handwriting on the wall.”  Although I might point out that the only time in Scripture I remember Him doing that was when some heavy duty judgment was about to fall!

Yet how many times do we pray and seek God and still don’t really have a definite sense of what He is saying?  We know the Word says, “My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me.”  It also says, “I will guide you with my eye.”

Let Your Heart Live!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Psalms 22:26 Let your heart live forever! 

If God says our hearts should live forever, what does that imply? That our hearts are not always alive?

What does it mean for your heart to live?  What does it mean for your heart to die?

What does it look like when our hearts really live?  Can you allow your mind to go back to the Garden and pull back the curtain on Adam and Eve?

Can you see them fully alive – living fully?

Walking and talking with God

Living uncovered – nothing to hide

Openly relating with one another and God

Speaking love and life to one another

Living in dominion over everything except one another and God

Living in pleasure

Embracing Seasons

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Today I feel fall beginning.  As I sit outside in the early morning; it is cool – very cool.  I hear a woodpecker in the distance hammering away at a tree.  I see a squirrel jump from branch to branch.  Crickets are still singing.  I breathe in the experience.  The first whispers of fall.

Yet, I know that following fall is winter.  And winter means death.  Fall is the beginning of a season of death.  What spring birthed and summer boasted of, fall now begins to kill.  Less daylight means less growth and eventually the advent of winter and then death.  The death of beautiful flowers and green leaves.  Cool becomes cold.  Refreshing winds become bitter winds. The welcoming arms of nature will eventually motion for me to stay inside to avoid the inevitable coming of death.

God’s Good Anger

Posted by: | Comments (0)

(I didn’t realize I was posting this on 9-11.  What an appropriate contrast of unrighteous anger and righteous anger.)

Nahum 1:2-7

2 God’s Wrath on His Enemies

God is jealous, and the Lord avenges;

The Lord avenges and is furious.

The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries,

And He reserves wrath for His enemies;

3 The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,

And will not at all acquit the wicked.

The Lord has His way

In the whirlwind and in the storm,

And the clouds are the dust of His feet.

4 He rebukes the sea and makes it dry,

And dries up all the rivers.

Bashan and Carmel wither,

And the flower of Lebanon wilts.

5 The mountains quake before Him,

The hills melt,

And the earth heaves at His presence,

Yes, the world and all who dwell in it.
