What really makes a person is the state of their heart.
If a person has a wise heart; the person will be wise and if a person is foolish at heart; the person will be foolish.
Why is this? It is simply because everything starts from the heart.
If you had access to the President or Queen and they gave you an instruction to carry out an assignment. Do you think that they will not supply everything required to support what they have told you to do?
If you had a child and you asked them to do something; say for example you asked them to continue their studies in a certain area of interest would you not pay the necessary allowance for their up-keeping?
There is nothing wrong in healthy eating and rightfully so. We do need to watch what we eat.
The scriptures tell us to glorify God in our body (1 Corinthians 6; 15). Part of glorifying God in our body will include taking care of our bodies which will include our diet.
However; it takes more than a healthy diet to walk in divine health.
If anyone hears the word “seed” especially if you are a farmer; your mind automatically goes to patience and a process.
We have many descriptions of God’s Word and one of them is seed.
Mark 4; 14
The sower soweth the word.
There is an account in the bible where the Lord sent angel Gabriel to give Zacharias and Mary a message.
From the account both Zacharias and Mary asked the angel a question however; and each got a different response.
The Lord does not mind us asking the right questions. In this account; Mary asked a fair question as she had never known a man and it had never been heard before so Marys question was genuine. The angel answered her question and even went on to tell her about her cousin Elizabeth to encourage her. The angel concluded by telling Mary that with God nothing is impossible.
Is there any reason we can find ourselves referred to as sheep in the bible?
As scripture uses the term “sheep” it simply means that there is something in the nature of sheep that is applicable to us all.
Now let’s have a quick look at some scriptures referring to us as sheep.
What is a storm?
I would define a storm as an unexpected interruption to the flow of things. This is particularly evident at sea. The boat is sailing nicely and all of a sudden a storm arises that threatens the safety of the boat and in some cases the life of those on board.
We all go through storms in life. There are many reasons storms come along in life. Let’s have a look at scripture of some examples of storms and what happened at the end .
In the book of Corinthians we see Paul present the Lord table.
Let’s have a look from scripture:
1 Corinthians 11; 23- 26
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
This post was birthed from an online sermon l joined a number of weeks ago by Pastor Mike White.
A ship is designated for movement. In the natural, every ship you board will take you somewhere depending on the destination of the ship.
Many of us are aware of the account of Jonah in the scriptures. The Lord told Jonah to go to Nineveh, however Jonah decided to board a ship and go to Tarshish far away from where the Lord had instructed him to go.
The children of Israel got to the Red Sea and had nowhere else to go. They felt trapped as the Egyptians had been pursuing them. If God did not show up that was it.
Water was in front of them; a humanly impossible situation.
They had come to the end of themselves; there was nothing they could do but cry unto the Lord.
Heavens agenda in any situation is several steps up higher than what we are thinking. Kevin Zadai.
