Chew it over

But they delight in the law of the lord,meditating on it day and night. Psalm 1:2 Our brain needs to be mulling on things constantly, but not just any old thing, good things, as what we meditate on we become.  Feed your body junk food regularly and you will look like it!  Feed your mind with junk and you become like it. What we feed our brain will be chewed on without us consciously thinking about it. Feed it enough and of the right stuff and it will benefit you 24/7.  It will live on in the subconscious moments of the day and night. The Holy Spirit can only bring to remembrance what has been put in us.  So give Him something to work with.  Put the Word in your mind and work it out in your life. Coal becomes a diamond when under pressure.  A gem is produced from scripture when it

The power of a child

You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. Psalm 8:2 There is no doubt the power of a child that speaks of the strength of God.  The faith of a child as they declare and praise Jesus binds the forces of hell and releases the power of heaven. We should never make God sound like a religious figure or the Bible a set of stories that sound like fantasy. Children should be taught the realness of God, the ways of His grace and shown the demonstration of His power.  The natural believing element of a child will turn the Truth of the bible into power very easily. They are a force in overcoming the enemy. Out of the lips of children will come true praise. Praise that has pure motive, that is not 'too' clever, that shows of

Christ – our wisdom and power

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19  Christ is what and who Paul is referring to hear.  He is the anchor for our soul.  In fact He is the anchor for our entire life.  We are positioned in Him. Our position is more powerful than our condition.  Our condition needs treating from time to time, but our position defines who we are and what we can achieve. In Christ we have wisdom and power (amongst many, many other things). But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:24 One piece of His wisdom can unlock an entire situation. Can you imagine seeing a car for the very first time and have no manual.  You would be excused for not seeing the key whole as its s

Life Change – DAY 4

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the fourth day. Genesis 1:19 It's day 4 already of a 6 day look at the life changing ‘MARKERS’ set down in Genesis 1 that have meaning for our own lives in 2013. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:17,18 DAY 4. If day 1 is about getting free, then day 4 is about living free.  On day 1 light and dark were separated.  On day 4 God placed something in the world that would maintain the separation of light and dark - the light of the sun and of the moon. Finding freedom from something destructive is clearly a landmark.  However, staying free and saying no to destructive temptation is equally a landmark moment in our lives.  We have been given pow
