Happy New Years!
You Shall Not Go Empty
We have stepped across the time line into the year 5779. The Jewish calendar says that Rosh Hashanah this year is on September the 10th. I for one, am feeling exuberant about this day in many ways. One because today is my birthday. I’m so honored to turn 50, which is the year of jubilee, on the day that turns the calendar for the Nation that all of the body has been grafted into. As I’m experiencing this convergence of times and seasons the Holy Spirit has poured out on me somethings about this year Ayin Tet that I just have to share with you.
All of the Hebrew letters have pictures and numeric value to them. Many of you know the word Ayin Tet is the number 79 which breaks down into 70+9 to equal 79. The 70 is the word Ayin which means to see. So the whole decade of the 70s is wrapped with the theme to see. Each number that follows draws us deeper into the mystery of revelations the Lord has hidden in the Hebrew language to...
Do We Work Harder On Someone Else's Dreams Than Our Own
Let's take today to reflect on our labor. There is nothing wrong with working for someone else. However, many people go through life and miss the other part of the equation. I will talk about the missing part in a bit but first lets look and what's taking place when we work for someone else. The biblical principle in operation when we are working for someone else is called stewardship. Take a look a Luke 16:12.
Luke 16:12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another man's who shall give you that which is your own?
The truth is that God will not give us our calling until we know how to be good stewards. Notice that I said calling. The reason I said calling is because you can step into doing the activities of your calling and not be in your calling. You can do this because of your gifts because your gifts will make room for you and bring you before great people but only God can give you access to your calling....
Position is key! When I was in wrestling in high school I remember how important it was in the second period when we started from the floor in the referee’s position to have the top offensive position. Even though you need to be able to maneuver either the top for me was a huge advantage as it positioned me to win.
In life we need to be in the right position to win. In our home, jobs and aspirations sometimes we miss out because when opportunity arrives we are not in position to succeed. For an example, most rich people make their fortunes not when the economy is good, but when it is bad. When the housing market crashed if you had money saved and your credit was in good standing to purchase a house or houses. A lot of times we look at people who are well off and say they are lucky however luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
My friends if position is key, then actions are the hand that turns the key. Millionaires take action. Opportunities are like sunrises -- if you...
As I was on my way to visit family about an hour away, I took the time to call other family members. I called my little brother who answered the phone right in the middle of telling someone in the room he had saved a lady from being mugged. I was like wow you’re like a hero.
After I hung up I called my older brother and his wife answered his cell phone. After I clarified that I called the right number, she said he was not home because a house caught on fire and he ran down the street to help. I thought wow, I got two hero brothers. I need to find a disaster somewhere so I can join the crew!
LoL…Well the truth is I am part of the super heroes. Ya see on this day when many celebrate Christmas let’s remember the reason for the season. God came to earth to reclaim the Kingdom of God. God came as the man Jesus Christ.
He healed the sick, raised the dead, and cast out Devils. As a real life super hero he walked on water and multiplied a two piece fish dinner to...
