Thought 6

resentmentToday we’re fasting from the thought that says, “I tried to forgive but I just don’t feel it.”

Many people are held back in life because they are waiting for the feeling of forgiveness before they let go. In the meantime, the unforgiveness continues its damage against them, while they wait for their feelings to change.

The problem with this thinking is that it is backwards.

Let’s overcome this today:

1. Forgiveness is not a feeling. It is a decision. Whatever grudge, whatever bitterness, or resentment that you have toward someone will not go away without a decision; a choice. (more…)

Beware of the enemy’s secret weapon.

Freedom by Forgiveness

Freedom by Forgiveness

The devil has many methods and devices which he uses to try to discourage the faith of believers. But out of all of satan’s strategies, he has a favorite “secret weapon” which has been more effective in destroying Christian lives than anything else in his arsenal. He delights in this wicked device. Each time it succeeds, I can imagine that he gleefully prances about, celebrating the downfall of another poor soul.

Unfortunately for many Christians, Satan’s ultimate weapon still remains a secret. Even though its lethal strike has caused countless numbers of believers to stumble away from God and the the Church, and into the clutches of the devil, most never actually recognized what the weapon was.

By now I’m sure that you’re very curious and wonder why the Bible didn’t warn us about this weapon. However, it does warn us. As a matter of fact, Jesus taught about it repeatedly. He certainly knew its danger and made it a priority to instruct his followers of how to protect themselves against it. (more…)

Today we are fasting from the thought that forgiveness is not that big of a deal.

I know we don’t come out and say it, but in our minds, I believe many people allow unresolved conflict and bitter feelings to remain in them, without realizing how much it robs us of the life God wants us to enjoy.

Forgiveness is the gateway to so much of God’s blessing in our lives, just as unforgiveness is a gateway into so much negative in our lives.

An unforgiving heart is poison to your spirit, soul and body. Hebrews 12:15 says that a root of bitterness springs up and defiles many. It doesn’t just defile many other people, but it defiles MANY OTHER AREAS OF OUR LIFE.

One of the rules of the world’s house that we must fast from is our dependence upon people.

Remember, the word “economy” means “rules of the house.”

we are either living by the world’s “rules of the house” or by God’s.

One of the rules of the world’s house is that we must fast from is our dependence upon people.

We need one another to complete the purpose of God in the world, but we don’t need to depend on other people coming through for us for our needs.

finances-2-credit-lgToday, I want us to deal with thoughts of uncertainty.

“What’s going to happen in the world?” “What’s going to happen in the economy?” “How’s this going to affect my finances?” “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

These thoughts of uncertainty in an unstable world must be dealt with.

Thought for the Week – 02/02/07

Jonah – Running From GodSelections from Jonah 1

The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because their wickedness has come up before Me.” However, Jonah got up to flee to Tarshish away from the LORD’s presence. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish…. Then the LORD hurled a violent wind onto the sea, and such a violent storm came up on the sea that the ship threatened to break apart…. They said to him, “What should we do to you to calm this sea that’s against us?”… He answered them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea so that it may quiet down for you, for I know I’m to blame for this violent storm that’s against you.”

Street preaching has never been an easy job, and anyone (more…)
