      Defined by Love Posted: 26 May 2017 01:00 AM PDT When you’re asked to define who you are, what is your go-to response? Most would say their name, whether or not they’re married, how many kids they have, what they do for a living and possibly some hobbies they enjoy. I’d say that’s a pretty standard answer. Which is why I’m intrigued with the Gospel writer and one of the twelve disciples, John. Even though he wrote an entire account of the life of Jesus, he never refers to himself by name. He always calls himself, “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” John 21:7a NKJVTherefore the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” I used to think it was kind of a humorous and maybe even cocky that John defined himself in this manner. But after reading the book of John, I now believe it was more of a humbleness that motivated him. John literally defined himself by the love of Jesus. When was the last time you introduced yourself that way? Hello, I’m the child whom Jesus loves. It would be kind of…no, a lot strange, to introduce ourselves in that way, but wow, isn’t God’s love for us the most powerful part about us? We sing song after song about our love for God, but isn’t the real miracle His love for us? That’s some powerful stuff right there. So, next time you’re having an identity crisis, remember you are a child of the most high God and HE LOVES YOU! Let your identity rest in Him today. ASK–Which do I think about more, my love for God or His love for me?

    Grasshoppers   Friday, May 26, 2017   One of the greatest lessons of faith is that of Joshua, Caleb, and the 10 spies. They went to the promised land to spy it out. Ten of the spies came back saying, "There were giants in the land… and we were like grasshoppers." What do we know about grasshoppers? They're dumb. They jump in almost any direction, even if it's the worst or most illogical direction to jump in. They'll even jump into their problem, into a wall. So when you don't walk by faith, as the ten spies didn't walk by faith, you end up thinking and acting like a grasshopper. Without faith, you just look at the giant, at the problem, and you beat your head against the wall. You might be stuck in the past, dealing with the same problem and acting the same way to solve it. Stop dwelling on that giant. Stop dwelling on your past and the darkness. Live by faith. Focus on the promises of God. If you live b y faith, the giants will stop being giants, the problems will stop being problems - and you will stop living like a grasshopper.From Message #738 - The Grape Factor    Scripture: Matt. 17:20  TODAY'S MISSION - Every time you start to feel discouraged, or inadequate, or unable - declare to yourself and the world that you can do anything with God. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

      From Catch of the Day by Jimmy Houston Stop doing evil. Change your ways and do what is right. – Jeremiah 18:11 Most fishermen think they’re pretty good at catching fish. Most believe if they really had the chance, they could make it big on the pro level. Most could not. But what they believe in their own minds is what is important. Over the years we’ve blurred the lines in our minds between good and evil to the point where there is not much difference, but God draws a very well-defined line between good and evil. To God, it’s adultery—not “Well, everyone does it.” To God, it’s murder—not a woman’s choice. To God, it’s a lie—not just bending the truth a bit. To God, it’s divorce—not incompatibility. To God, it’s stealing—not “I can’t afford to tithe.” It’s time we wake up as a people and start doing right according to God.

    May 26 Recognize Your Vulnerability 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 Some Christians see a fellow believer fall into sin but fail to acknowledge that they, too, could stumble. That's dangerous. Satan has them right where he wants them: deceived by a false sense of confidence. Three enemies are constantly at work trying to bring us down: the Devil, his world system, and our own treacherous flesh. Even though believers have a righteous standing before God, we must each, like Paul, acknowledge an internal problem: "sin which dwells in me" (Rom. 7:20). Satan takes full advantage of this weakness, luring us with fleshly and worldly temptations. He stokes our pride so we'll be blinded to our own vulnerability to stumbling. Christians need to be continually on guard. Since ignorance--of the nature of sin, the strategies of the Enemy, and our own areas of weakness--sets us up for failure, we cannot afford to be careless in our thinking. Anytime you find yourself excusing, redefining, or rationalizing sin, you've lost your sensitivity to the Lord. God's Word must always fill our minds and direct our steps. If you've drifted from the Lord, turn back to Him by acknowledging your sin and accepting full responsibility for it. Repentance simply means changing your mind and going in a different direction--toward God instead of away from Him.   The next step is harder. Respond with gratitude for the Lord's chastisement. Every time believers fall into sin, God lovingly works to bring them back into a fellowship with Him. His discipline may be painful, but it's always good because it brings us to our senses and reconnects us with our Father.

    Once again, I have had several instances of a recurring theme show up, getting my attention. In this case it revolves around a shoe. You see, ever since I broke my leg, the time I spent recovering and healing, I found myself truly diving into Gods word for solace and comfort. I also spent a great deal of time painting, (although the paint was digital, just me and my iPad) I was playing around one day and just happened to start a free-form painting, something that looked like a woman's high heel shoe emerged, so I went with it. It came out fantastic, it pleased me so much, that it became the first in a series of shoes. I thought later on about it that perhaps it was because I was injured and desirous of being able to return to such attire (which seemed really far off, if ever at all).LOLRolling ahead, I've recovered, but keep painting my fancy shoes amongst other works of art. Incidentally, over over the last few weeks, I've been drawn to several passages in the Bible, all of which revolve around a shoe or shoes. I watched the movie, the Story of Ruth from the Bible, (Ruth 4:7) who became the wife of Boaz, (the Great Grandparents of David) I read about Moses being instructed to remove his shoes, as he was standing on Holy ground (Exodus 3:5) and the same thing for Joshua (Joshua 5: 14-15). Further research uncovered yet other mention of shoes, such as (Amos 2:6) which refers to Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery! (which speaks to the injustices of this world, those who sit in high places who have dominion and power, supposing to be in good standing, who are not)Every account mentioned above, has different meanings, different connotations attached, one meant concession (forfeiting their possession or rights thereto) another meant humbleness, in standing before God and yet another stood for symbolism of an injustice (where money, possession and power were favored over the kinship of blood and brotherhood). So what is the underlying unifying theme to all of this. It is obedience, obtaining it, remaining in it or the lack of it!I think of a baby, walking around with no shoes, barefoot and it conjures up thoughts of trust, being carefree and cared for. God wants us in spirit to be barefoot to Him, like a baby. We see the loss of a shoe, as symbolic, this applies to anything you might have lost in your life; if it's yours and meant for you, worn by you, what use is it to anyone else?! In all honesty those that take from others will find that their spoils are as useful as one shoe, in other words useless! That which is taken from us wrongfully, will surely have to be returned or counted to us for restitution. Then we have the conscious and intentional forfeit, isn't that a picture of dying to this world for the gain of Christ Jesus?! Having the Lord dwell within us, shouldn't we allow Him to fill our shoes? To order our footsteps and keep us on that path?! Blessed are the feet of those who spread the Gospel! Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! I hope that gives you some new insights on the significance of walking with the Lord and staying in step with the rhythm of obedience!

    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

    God Gives His Children (Believers) Two Rules for a Happy Marriage:   22 Wives should submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord; 23 because the husband is head of the wife, just as the Messiah, as head of the Messianic Community, is himself the one who keeps the body safe. 24 Just as the Messianic Community submits to the Messiah, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.           Ephesians 5:22-24 CJB God knows men. Men need to feel responsible and supreme! Wives do not challenge your husband’s decision making. They will become bossy and unresponsive, cold and aloof. Don’t challenge his daily decisions. For example: “honey don’t wear that shirt, or don’t wear those pants, shoes, etc..”   25 As for husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the Messianic Community, indeed, gave himself up on its behalf, 26 in order to set it apart for God, making it clean through immersion in the mikveh, so to speak, 27 in order to present the Messianic Community to himself as a bride to be proud of, without a spot, wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without defect. 28 This is how husbands ought to love their wives — like their own bodies; for the man who loves his wife is loving himself. 29 Why, no one ever hated his own flesh! On the contrary, he feeds it well and takes care of it, just as the Messiah does the Messianic Community, 30 because we are parts of his Body. 31 “Therefore a man will leave his father and mother and remain with his wife, and the two will become one.”
