Subject: Faith, trust grounded obedience

If Jesus can? No, if you can!<br><br>Mark 9:23<br><br>23 “If You can?” echoed Jesus. “All things are possible to him who believes!”<br><br>I believe Jesus would be the one who asked us the question "if you can?" But if you can what?<br>How about "if you CAN believe!" <br><br>Matthew 17:20<br><br>“Because you have so little faith,” He answered. “For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”<br><br>What does this faith look like? What does it feel, taste, sound, or even smell like. I mean, a lot of people "say" they believe but what does believing really look like. How does it live and move and walk on the inside of us? How does it take a very real presence and stance inside us to be tangible to God's sight? Is it instantaneous or does it build up? Can it be instantaneous or do we have to do something first? How was Jesus able to shrivel a fig tree by His words or how was Elijah able to bring fire down from heaven? How was the disciples able to walk about and whomever their shadow fell upon would be healed? How do you and I attain such trust? <br><br>1st John 3:22<br><br>and we will receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in His sight.<br><br>John 15:7<br><br>If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and to you it will come to pass.

Subject: safety

safety harness does not feel safe compared to standing still. It feels safe compared to falling. It is safe compared to falling. standing still not falling probably would have been better but a safety harness makes rapid forward or even downward direction safe. <br><br>Thank God He's got me and the risks I take need not seem frightful because He's got me. Still, standing still and doing nothing or hiding from my responsibilities might have been easier, felt safer, but I'd have to go without the benefit of being fully in His will, whatever that looks like. <br><br>Maybe sometimes He just wants me to stand still. <br><br>Maybe sometimes He wants me jump.<br><br>Either way, I am glad He's got me.

Subject: ignorance and Righteousness

The sun and the fog. I could see the fog developing just beyond the tree line when it was getting dark. Then with the darkness the fog set in with blinding strength. <br><br>In the morning, the Sun came up again and I could see and even feel its brightness through the fog but it took a while before the fog began to thin. All I did was wait. <br><br>I waited and it became bright and the sun did what the sun does. Righteousness is like that. It rises with healing in its wings. It burns away the fog of uselessness and ignorance. It rises and until the fog is gone it is debatably safe to proceed. <br><br>Praise God for the sun.

Subject: walk with God

A leg to stand on, a leg to strive on. I guess walking is about know which leg to put how much wait on, when, and when to switch. A friend got a new knee recently and he got off the walker and even his cane way early. I'm not sure that was good but he's definitely healing very quickly. <br><br>In any case, he described it as having to retrain the muscles all around his knee to do what they are supposed to already know how to do. <br><br>This is what it means to be a Christian. We must learn one step at a time, how to take steps, and how to string them together to form a walk that will honor God. Sometimes, of course we will find that we are taking or have taken the next step without really knowing what we were doing. Still, it is a step whether we author it or not. We have to let Him do His part and then continue the journey with the next step from the spot to which He now has taken us. <br><br>He makes that possible too. <br><br>Praise God that Jesus is the way...<br>Let's take another step in Christ today. Ready, stand, strive, stand, strive, repeat.<br><br>Thank you Jesus.

Subject: Looking forward to working with God

As I wake up in the morning with the sun streaming through my bedroom window I hear the birds chirping. They are already hard at a day's work finding worms and twigs for nests. They have already eaten breakfast. They do not judge me for having slept in which is good because maybe in my book I am rising early. <br><br>It's the notion that they are already hard at work that catches my mind. I vaguely remember a movie, a John Wayne movie. It seems that at the end of the movie they weren't sure exactly how to close it out. The Hero had triumphed and the wagon train was continuing West. John Wayne told the director he knew just what to do. <br><br>In the final scene of the movie created by John Wayne's authorship, John Wayne's character is sitting at a small round wooden table in the corner of some bar. And unseen character, a voice familiar to those who have been watching the entire story, asks the question, "So, what now?" John Wayne's character stands up and monologues. The gist of that monologue is this.<br><br>I don't know for sure where we're going now or what's going to happen but one thing I do know for sure. When we get there we will find God has already been there and is already hard at work. Fade scene. <br><br>So, that's the beginning of my day. I can't say I know exactly where it's going to go but I know I'll find God there already working. If God eats breakfast then it would be safe to say he's already eaten. If I simply follow his leading and trust him and his preparations then I can know in my heart of hearts that everything has been taken care of. <br><br>I thank Him as my head leaves my pillow. I have a lot to thank him for and I can never do a good enough job but he seems to like it because every time I get up and head into the unknown of my day I find he has already been hard at work and I am always pleased with his craftsmanship.<br><br>So, let's get up and see what God has been working on. Ooh, maybe He'll let us help.

Subject: The baby is truly found in the bath water

Do you have you roots firmly planted?<br>The baby is only really found in the "bath water!"<br><br>Knowing Jesus does not mean He isn't in the old testament. What I mean is it's not okay to say that since we have and believed in the Son that we no longer have any need to know and understand the old covenant. Jesus told a story in in Luke 16 about a man believing people would change if someone were to rise from the dead and come to them but look at what Jesus said about Abraham's reply in <br>Luke 16:31<br>Then Abraham said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”<br>He also said in Mathew 13:57<br>Then He told them, “For this reason, every scribe who has been discipled in the kingdom of heaven is like a homeowner who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”<br><br>So you see that if you have received Jesus in the proper way He wants to be received you will learn something called the roots of our Christian faith found in the Hebrew text.
