You Make Me Brave - Amanda Cook & Bethel Music (Official Live Music Video)

Have you ever had a time when you were challenged by your Christian faith to do the right thing? Did you do it? Why? or Why not?  Were you brave enough, if convicted to do the right thing, to do it? What was your motive?

You must respond to God's commands with a submissive and humble heart, not a heart of condemnation. This does not excuse you from being just or to allow justice to prevail. It guides you to understand whose justice we are seeking. I have failed at this myself but have grown to understand the benefit of following Him.

1 John 2:3-6" 3 By this we know that we have come to know Him if we keep His commandments. 4 The one who says, " I have come to know Him." and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in Him. 5 but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked."

Keep check! …

Believe!

The Christian walk is a journey. The key is understanding the direction is knowing who is responsible for  holding the map, you or God?  You and I have the responsibility to rely on God's directions for us, not to rely on yourself to set your course. 
2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 
~"To hope is to believe. Continue to have hope in what you desire; for if you lose hope, you've lost the dream."~ Clint Fleming
As Christians our hope is in the LORD, not ourselves. Our hearts, which should be grafted into His, should desire to fulfill His plans in our lives.  Our dreams should be established in His will.
So, if we set out in our journey with Christ having the hop, desires, and dreams set in Him, we will accomplish them, if we trust Him and are in submission to Him.
Remember, as …

Don't Overlook the Small Stuff

I woke this morning thinking about the book I am writing. I needed to rearrange the order of the chapters in order to provide greater continuity in the flow of the message.  After completing that, I started in writing were I last left off.

I was reviewing a paragraph in the current chapter of which I was writing and realized I omitted some important experiences.  Too often, we are looking down the road at our goals and overlook each step that we take in pursuit.  Take the time to stop, and focus on where you are now and what God is doing now. Each step is significant in His eyes. Each step must be intentional.  Don't overlook what you consider to be the small stuff.  Without the step, you would be immobile.
