Working All Things for Good

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people." -Genesis 50:20 Joseph was sold into slavery at about 17 years old. He was sold by his own brothers! But, God had a bigger plan and redeemed this negative situation in spite of what had happened to Joseph. Joseph was Jacob's favorite son, and as such, was hated by his brothers who were full of jealousy toward him. After Joseph told his brothers a dream about the fact that they would one day bow to him, they had had enough - they wanted to get rid of him. At first their plan was to kill him, but Joseph's brother Reuben intervened, "Why should we shed any blo

Information Versus Revelation

"I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ." -Galatians 1:12 Have you ever gotten a revelation before? A revelation is different from just receiving information. I remember when I got the revelation that God really did love me... my life has never been the same! There is plenty of information going around in the world, and in churches too. But what about revelation? How do we know when we've received a revelation? You'll know that you've received a revelation on something when you receive something powerful in your spirit, along with the words that are being expressed. Revelation comes through the heart

Having a Biblical Worldview

"For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires." -Hebrews 4:12 According to research, the majority of Americans consider themselves Christians. (Seventy-six to eighty percent, respectively.) But, very few of us have a biblical worldview. What is a biblical worldview? By and large, it means that our beliefs align with that of the Bible. defines a biblical worldview as the following: Believe that absolute moral truth exists That the source of moral truth is the Bible That the Bible is accurate in all of the principles it teaches Th

What Is Tithing?

"Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, 'Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.' Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything." -Genesis 14:18-20 What is tithing? Many people might argue that tithing is outdated, that it is an "old-fashioned" idea. But is it? Why did God want His people to tithe? In Hebrew, the word "tithe" actually means 10%. Tithing is giving 10% of all our "increase" (what we get paid) to God as an act of worship to Him. We do this for various reasons - most of which are beneficial to us vers

Rachel Versus Leah Faith

"Since Jacob was in love with Rachel, he told her father, 'I'll work for you for seven years if you'll give me Rachel, your younger daughter, as my wife.'" -Genesis 29:18 Do you have a dream? You might be at a stage in your life where you want to do something great with your life, but not sure what. Or, you may know exactly what you want but no idea how to get there. There may be a few of you that know exactly what you want, and are taking the steps to get there. You may have already accomplished some of the dreams and goals God has put in your heart. Whatever the case may be, you have probably encountered "Leah" faith at some time in your life. Leah was the eldest daughter of Laban. J

Religion Trips Us Up

"So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won't be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses." -Galatians 5:16-18 Have you ever heard the story of the big red button? I used to see it often in cartoons as a kid. The cartoon character is presented with a situation in which there is a "big red button" he or she

Building God's House

"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,' says the LORD. 'You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?' declares the LORD Almighty. 'Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house." -Haggai 1:7-11 Five-hundred and twenty years before the birth of Christ, a prophet named Haggai cited the urgency of rebuilding God's temple after the Israelites were freed from captivity some 18 years earlier. In Haggai 1:3-4, it states, "Then the word of the LORD came t

Remaining Pure

"Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body." -1 Corinthians 6:18-20 In our society today, it is expected that people have sex before marriage. A study done back in 2002 found that 95% of people have had premarital sex, and 93% of them had by age 30. (In comparison, of women born in 1940, 90% had had premarital sex.)(1) However, I don't think these facts about premarital sex should b

Battleground of the Mind

"So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace." -Romans 8:6 Has your mind ever gotten the best of you? Every day, there is a great temptation to believe the worst about someone or something that has happened to us. Even greater is the temptation to believe the worst of God due to something that has happened or not happened; that He is not good, and He is not on our side. It is so true that our minds are a battlefield. The enemy uses this battlefield to gain ground - to try to use things and situations that have happened to us to turn us away from God. He reminds us of our past, brings up regrets, and br
