Stop Wondering and Start Believing

How many times have I stood beside God's big ocean and wondered if he could fill my glass? How many times have I stood beside God's Word and wondered if he could heal me?
How many times have I stood beside The Creator and wondered if he could meet my needs?
How many times have I stood beside His consuming love and wondered if he cared enough to deliver me?
Unfortunately we seem to operate with a certain type of reasoning in the natural realm but do not apply the same logic in the spiritual realm. For example, we come up with excuses like "I don't believe we need to read the bible every day." Why don't we apply the same logical application to the natural world and not eat food every day? 

Others may say "I don't believe we need to pray every day." Let's apply it in the natural and not speak to our spouses every day. That may cause a problem in our relationship due to a lack of communication. 

One more would be "I don't believe you have to go to church to be a Christian." In the natural, try to eat a meal without using the kitchen, or encourage your family members without them being in the same room or within earshot of you. 

Matthew 16:6-12 
6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
7  And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.
8  Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?
9  Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
10  Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
11  How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12  Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Jesus was obviously talking about the false doctrine of the Pharisees but the disciples thought he was talking about lunch. The word “reasoned” means to speculate or imagine. They were filtering the spiritual language through the natural unregenerate lens of perception. If correction wouldn’t have happened, they would have continued on eventually stumbling headlong into the snare of false doctrine, thus paying a heavy price. Sometimes like the disciples, we become so absorbed in the natural world we fail to recognize the higher spiritual meaning and magnanimous power of God’s Word. 

Another point needs made when looking at this teachable passage. Jesus reminds them of the times past he performed miracles and questions their basis of reasoning. In other words, if he did before why couldn’t he do it now? We tend to be forgetful of God’s performance in our past. Do you remember when you had a financial crisis and you were nervous and wondering what was going to happen and all of a sudden it was provided for? What’s interesting is the next time it happened we were probably as nervous and full of wonderment as we were the first time. In all fairness to the disciples we are hardly any better than them in our remembrance. 

We simply need to be convinced of God’s nature. He never changes! What he did for you yesterday, he will do for you today, AND he will do it again tomorrow.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Business/Leadership Summit 2016

Business/Leadership Summit 2016 on Nov. 4-5 @ the Crowne Plaza in Harrisburg, Pa.
You will learn at this Summit how to change a toxic business environment to a Golden Rule culture. How successful men & women got to the top without cheating but retained their moral compass and ethical values. How effective leadership uses the Golden Rule to diffuse conflict and increase productivity. How successful leaders are literally getting in the trenches of some of our most battered communities and educating, training, healing racial tension, and turning takers into givers to society. This is only the beginning of what you will be learning.

Thank You for the interest in the Summit.

Truth Will Set You Free

John 8:32  
32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

To the degree I understand a pertinent truth, and to the degree I implement its corresponding action, is the level of freedom I will experience. Many people can quote this verse but live without the freedom it promises. The mere acquiescing of knowledge is not what produces freedom in this verse. It’s the experiencing of the truth or the implementation of what is known. The Complete Biblical Library Commentary (CBL) says, “The word "know" means "come to know" and connotes a knowledge that is learned through experience.”

3 John 1:2
2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

It is interesting that John hinges prosperity and health on the condition of the soul in the latter part of the verse. As the soul prospers or increases so does my health, and outward prosperity becomes evident. The soul here is referring to the entirety of the inward man which includes his knowledge of truth. As his understanding increases; freedom from sickness and the curses are experienced, and the person lives in this world but is not of this world.

Knowing the truth will produce a saturation of freedom in every area of life allowing the glory of God to flow uninhibited through you.

Understanding the truth + doing the truth = FREEDOM
