Stubborn Road

August 30, 2016

THOUGHT: Don’t be stubborn and refuse to listen to godly wisdom!

BIBLE: But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
“Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me…” Proverbs 1:24-28

Promise

August 26, 2016

THOUGHT: God promises that if you do what he asked, he will hear from heaven. He will forgive your sin. He will bring healing and renewal to our land. Tomorrow is July 4th, the day we declared our independence from tyranny. But why not let this weekend be dependence day, when we declare our complete dependence on God to hear us, forgive us and heal our land!

BIBLE: ...then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land... -2 Chronicles 7:14

Turn

August 25, 2016

THOUGHT: Once you have humbled yourself, begun to pray, then God shows you areas of your life that need to change. Honesty. No more cover. Confession. You are turning from things God’s shows you that need to change and you are turning to seek the Lord. Renewal doesn’t start in one simultaneous change of heart by a massive number of people. Renewal starts one person at a time, one life at a time – humbling themselves, praying, turning from sin and turning to the Lord. Just think, you could start a chain reaction of renewal in your home, at your work, in your neighborhood, in your church.

BIBLE: ...seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;... -2 Chronicles 7:14

Pray

August 24, 2016

THOUGHT: I’m convinced that prayer doesn’t draw God closer to you, but you closer to God. In prayer we come close to God, we pray for our needs and we ask for a fresh movement in our nation. All great spiritual renewals start right here in prayer! [I just came back from Israel, praying at the wall, fervent] We need to have that kind of fervent prayer for our families, neighbors, churches, country! Pray for protection, pray for change, pray for renewed hearts, pray for spiritual awakening.
BIBLE: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray... -2 Chronicles 7:14

Humble Themselves

August 23, 2016

THOUGHT: Humility is an attitude that doesn’t demand your own way or think you have all the answers– humility is an attitude that puts God’s wants, his desires, his interests, his Word, his agenda above your own and acknowledges that you can’t fix this on your own. As long as it’s all about what you want, you will never see God move. But when you start to say, “God I want what you want” then you will see God begin to move in your life.
BIBLE: Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, -1 Peter 5:6
