Question


If Holy Spirit is The Great Teacher,and He is, what have we learned this year? 

John 14:26

2014 is rapidly coming to a close, we are right on the heels of a New Year. We have spent almost 365 days with the Holy Spirit, what have we learned? How have we grown? What goals have we accomplished?

You see, if He is The Teacher that means we must yield to becoming students and either learn something new that we haven’t previously known or have a refresher course in things we have known but let slip and we no longer put into practice. 

This morning as I was going about my day Holy Spirit began to speak with me. (How cool is that, He is present with us in our day)

God deals with me alot in the area of the renewed mind. Tearing down strong holds that have held me captive, most I had no idea were even there. 

Personally I have to admit that I have learned many invaluable lessons. Honestly I feel as if I’ve been in Holy Spirit Boot Camp if you will.

We as the Body of Christ cannot afford to remain scripturally illiterate. There are many things that are about to take place that will require us to live from within. By that I mean we are children of the Supernatural, we must begin to live from the inside out. 

Colossians 1:27

We have got to spend time in The Word of God. That can be challenging ; the world around us is constantly pulling & tugging vying for our attention. But, we have to choose God as our priority. We have got to get the wisdom of God and begin to operate within the Kingdom.

We must become Kingdom of God minded. 

Kingdom of God-God’s way of doing things.

We cannot afford to remain the same. God is ever growing and increasing. That means we must stretch and not become lazy and complacent.

Stretching is uncomfortable and it has a purpose.

Stretching-the result is a feeling of increased muscle control, flexibility and range of motion. The more we stretch the greater our range of motion and our flexibility. It increases our capacity to receive. 

Example: You can’t put 10pds of sugar in a 5pd bag. It will not fit. You will have sugar spilling out all over the place.

I hope that analogy works for you? Because God cannot put 2015 revelations into a 2009 mindset. It’s time to come up higher. 

Hosea 4:6

satan is against Godly wisdom. he does not want us learning and maturing in the things of God. he thrives off of our ignorance and laziness. he wants the church ignorant, sick and broke. 

The saying, “The Battlefield Is In The Mind” is not just some cute cliche’. It is truth. 

We are tri-part beings. We are spirits who have a soul and live in a body. Our minds-house our souls. That’s our thinker, feeler and chooser. We must prosper in our souls. Our thoughts form our words, our words in turn frame the world we see around us. 

3 John 1:2

In order for our results to change we have to change our minds. Our thought processes. How we send & receive information. 

Romans 12:2

We accomplish this by spending time in God’s word and allowing Holy Spirit to teach us. He’s pretty cool to hang out with. He has a funny sense of humor too. Get to know Him, I promise you; you’ll never regret it. Life gets so much easier. It doesn’t have to be hard. We don’t have to get all the bumps and bruises.

It’s all about relationship. Do you share personal information with people you are not intimate with? Neither does God. Think about it.

Until next time, 

May the peace of God and the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit guard your hearts and minds.

Shalom my friends

Season’s Change


Ecclesiastes 3:1
​ To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

The smell of freshly brewed coffee is coming from my kitchen as I type this.
Few things in life smell better to me. As I am waiting on my cup-of- joe to finish I am sitting here looking out my window; the leaves have fallen off the trees, what once was green grass is now brown. The colors of summer are now long gone. The vibrant greens have now changed to autumn oranges, yellows and reds.
Today the sun isn’t shining brightly but never the less today is still a gorgeous day.

This moment is reflective of life as I see it. Everything hasn’t gone my way, in the time frame I would have liked but as I take note of the natural progression of things I’m comforted in knowing that my season like the 4 Season’s of The Year are changing as well.

2014, is coming to an end-My how this year has gone by quickly; I have this overwhelming sense of expectancy about the things to come. I hold dear these precious moments that I can just take the time to sit still and pay attention to the things that matter.

My heart is filled with gratitude for the wonderful things God has done. He has kept me and my family all year long. Keeping us from danger, hurt and harm. He has provided all of our needs and He has been FAITHFUL in every way.

How about you, what season are you in? How have you decided to approach this new season of life? I encourage you in whatever season you may be in to find the peace that is so readily available through trusting in The Lord’s Love towards you.

I pray that we will be like the sons of Issachar who were wise and knew how to discern the seasons (times).

1 Chronicles 12:32
And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.
