Dynamite= Powerfully Changed Life (Sunday Story Inspiration)

Ephesians 3:16
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;”

…I quickly changed into my after-school clothes so I could watch the men who were “dynamiting” the rock layer where an addition to our house would be built. They pre-drilled a layer of rock, loaded the holes with dynamite and then dragged a cable net over the site. Ignition caused an explosion that lifted the cable net off the ground.

Then the men dragged the net away and cleaned up the broken rock. Eventually the excavation beside our house was deep enough to pour a footer and concrete floor. The surrounding land was still the same, but the work area was completely different from how it use to be before.

In Similar:

In our verse above, Ephesians 3:16, the word “MIGHT” in the Greek is “DUNAMIS, it’s where we get our word “DYNAMITE.” The power of God and His Word is such that it has the same effects that dynamite had in the illustration above. It completely and powerfully changes us so that we are no longer the same person.

We have new desires, ambitions, motives, hopes and our goals line up more with God than that of the world’s following. Even people that knew you before will see that you are not the same person. 2 Corinthians states this: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

There is no ability in us to make change; not a permanent change. Oh we might can change a few things, but it won’t be consistent. When we try to change ourselves for the better we still end up doing the things we don’t want to do and then we get so depressed and stressed cause we fail trying to do things in our lives that only God can do; that’s how God designed us to be- total dependent on Him.

If you don’t like something in your life, ask God to come in and change it. He will. Thanks and praise to God that we can still in this late hour experience His “DYNAMITE” and be personally strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. 🙂

Do You Have Troubles ? (Sunday Inspiration)

2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

The Word ‘trouble‘ is found over a hundred times in the King James (Original and most accurate translation in English) Bible, and the word “troubled” 68 times. We should not find that surprising…Job in Job 14:1 states, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” That may sound very negative but back then, it was a reality. Men of God in the Old Testament, such a Job, Joseph, King David and Daniel had many troubles. In the New Testament, Jesus was sometimes troubled and so were His disciples.

We see this especially in Paul’s voyage. Paul was on a stormy voyage that ended in a shipwreck. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 2:9, “Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.”

Trouble can be in this world: afflictions (many times by our own hands), distresses (worries,stress,etc), disease (eating poorly,taking drugs,false beliefs),financial issues (poor decisions with money), loss of material items (stolen, weather related,etc), and mechanical breakdowns (man made cars,computers and machines). But how should we relate to these things? Obviously in a positive way: Jesus said, in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

Again in John 14:27 Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples stated this in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

Instead of being troubled with the cares of this life lets sit at the feet of Jesus and focus on God rather than our trouble. Which ever one (troubles or God) we magnify the most in our life will dominate our future.

Know this, that God (if believed) will not only help us in trouble, but also help keep us out of trouble. 🙂

How Our View Of The World Affects Learning, Knowledge And Understanding (LINK)

Happy Sunday to everyone. Once in while (on a Sunday) you can find encouraging tidbits of info (always use discernment) that can change our course, or enlighten our path towards a better direction or, ending up skipping over some would-be bad obstacles and freeing us up from an otherwise pit or wrong place. I found such info (knew this, maybe you did too) here at this link (below). Be blessed! You are carrying around someone’s miracle today……….be there. –Moraldiplomat

Excerpts:

“……………..we are finite.  We learn slowly, in bits and pieces, here a little and there a little.  We also easily forget things we once knew.  And we are sinful.  Our unbelief easily colors our thinking, even when we are thinking about God’s truth.  In short, our view of the world will never exactly be God’s … not now, and not even in eternity.  We will never have his omniscience and infinite wisdom.  And yet we must learn………………

……………Above all, it’s important to understand that Paul found no common ground with Greek philosophy here.  Even more, everything Paul said about God was entirely at odds with the with the philosophers’ basic assumptions.  And yet Paul could still point to the Stoic poets and find support in their words, if not in their underlying theology.

For even the Greek poets knew that idols were “foundational garbage” and that men were, in some sense … “the offspring of God.”  Above all, Paul’s summary of theology was sufficient to draw a sharp contrast between his understanding of the world and that of the pagan philosophers.  He created a sufficient base for a moral and intellectual conversation about repentance………….”

Let’s start the new week with a new goal and a better understanding of God and the world around us. Have a great next week! 🙂

Heavy Rain in South Texas Could Bring More Flooding Before Dry Conditions Return Friday

https://weather.com/forecast/regional/news/2018-06-18-texas-tropical-moisture-heavy-rain-drought-relief-flood-threat

Ya know for at least 250 years, weather (man-made or just default) has not been man’s best friend. Climate change as it’s called now (global warming is a hoax) or earth changes has presented mankind with challenges (many have tried to help), but there are not enough “helpers” to really fix things back like they use to be. Lives have been changed and in many case, not for the best.

It’s a sad day to have so much turmoil in this USA, but it’s also nice when we can all help and share our wisdom, knowledge help links, information (keep in mind it’s not all wonderful) and just “what works.” We are a blessed people, and we are meant to be a blessing. With that said, I want to share here a link and video regarding Texas– keep them in your prayers.

I heard a minister once say, “If you can’t shoot, carry bullets” We may not can be there to help others in a disaster, but we can lift them up in prayer. Think good thoughts, stay positive; and believe that it won’t come your way. However, in today’s world that’s not always the case. Be prepared for the worst but hope for the best. Thanks to DAHBOO77 for the video. Let’s carry bullets and share links and information that helps heal a broken world and an injured people. God bless!

 

Heaven’s Grocery Store (POEM)

“I was walking down life’s highway
a long time ago,
and I saw a sign that read:
Heaven’s Grocery Store

As I got a little closer,
the door came wide open,
and as I looked intently,
suddenly I was standing inside.

I saw angels,
they were standing everywhere.
One handed me a basket and said,
“My child shop with care.”

Everything a Christian needed.
was in that grocery store.
All you could carry that day;
and can return the next day for more.

First I got some PATIENCE,
and LOVE was in the same row.
Further down was UNDERSTANDING,
which you need everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of WISDOM,
a bag or two of FAITH.
And I didn’t want to miss out on
the HOLY SPIRIT; He was abundant in this place.

I stepped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE,
to help me run the race.
By now my basket was getting full,
but I remembered I needed GRACE.

How could I forget SALVATION,
for salvation, well, that was free!
So I tried to get plenty of that,
there was enough to save both you and me.

Then I started up to the counter,
to pay my grocery bill.
I thought I had everything I needed
to do my Master’s will.

As I went up to the last aisle,
I saw PRAYER and grabbed some,
for I knew when I stepped outside,
I would run right into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful,
they were on the last shelf.
SONG and PRAISE were standing near;
so I helped myself.

Then I said to the angel,
“How much do I owe?”
He smiled and said,
“Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again, I smiled at him and said,
“How much do I really owe?”
Again, he smiled and said,
“My child, JESUS PAID ALL THAT YOU OWE,
HE PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.”

Have you gone shopping lately?
