Got trials going on? You have a choice: Gonna worry about them or pass the test(s) at hand? They're there for a reason: HOUSE BUILDING...YOUR HOUSE which is GOD'S HOUSE if you're saved. All things with purpose, therefore God has something planned and somehow it's through you, hence the trials. Discover it. (James 1:4.)

It's interesting how just a few years ago there was so much teaching from the prosperity people and blahblah and yet now here today there are scores of people who, should they be asked, would step up and say they have this, that, and the other blessing going on WITHOUT much to show in terms of material prosperity. The funny thing is, THEY are actually the ones who are really prospering, especially seeing how materialistic prosperity is a short blip on the radar known as "this natural lifetime" (Matthew 6:19-20).

Be reminded there is no other you. No one else has the exact ministry you do, and yet using your individual gifts in ways that are in unity with other believers is how construction of God's House accelerates (1 Corinthians 12). For those of you who are drawn to words like "edification", "building up", "spurring", "coaching" and so on, RISE UP. Step into your place. You who are called to intercession, find those gaps in which to stand and dig in. You with gifts of discernment, keep your eyes open for erroneous teachings and replace them with God's truth. On and on the list goes, and no one is lesser or greater than the other for God does not show favorites (Romans 2:11).

I've always liked this illustration given by a friend about the "How tos" of living your life ministry as a believer and allowing God to do the work versus your efforts from your own understanding: "Wait for just the right time to be at just the right place to have just the right amount of growth and ammo for just the right ministry into a certain something or somethings."

Hmm. Interesting perspective. Makes sense:
"Faith according to Word of Faith doctrine is not submissive trust in God. It is not belief in revealed revelation in the scripture. Faith is a formula by which you manipulate the universe, by which you manipulate things."
--John MacArthur

I had a friend ask me, "It's easy to pray and believe for others, but when it comes to believing for myself, it's almost impossible so how do I overcome that obstacle?" God gave me this answer, and the hope in this post is that it can build others as well: Romans 8:28. We clear that obstacle by looking at the good which lies past the point of "all things work together" rather than just looking at the working together process only. As you look at the words "FOR THE GOOD" as God sees things, you can look at where you are today and see Him already at work doing that very thing in days gone by, somehow, some way. What He did then, He still does today and will do tomorrow. (See also Philippians 1:6.)

Here's a little reminder to everyone on the planet given the state of the world today and the direction it is heading: The ultimate result of all things is found in Romans 14:11 - It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’” Whether you choose to believe the fact or reject it is irrelevant, for whether in honor and celebration or whether involuntarily is up to you, your choice. Either way, what The Lord says in Romans 14:11 WILL apply someday across the board and without exception.

There are a great many believers who have things going on in life of a heavy nature. Many feel overwhelmed by circumstances which leave them asking. Why?" Many feel like there are large portions of life which just don't make any sense. All of these things are leaving them with a sense of being "on edge". Here's a little reminder for you: You're not alone, and even though you feel on edge, PAST that edge is by no means a cliff. It's a threshold to an open door. Your logic or reasoning won't solve the stuff going on but your faith to step over that line into what God's trying to do in your life brings peace, growth and development in those areas you were created for in the first place. ROMANS 8:28.

To any and everyone out there who does any teaching from God's word, here's a bottom line scenario: If what you teach is based on select passages and if there are other passages which APPEAR to contradict, then all it means is you have not lined up your teaching with the ENTIRE Word of God for God's Word NEVER contradicts itself. That means stop teaching until you rectify it. Past and present examples of junk doctrine include "No women in ministry", "You can lose your salvation", "Name it/claim it", "Buy my anointed handkerchief and be blessed with prosperity", "The rapture" in it's most popular pre-tribulation context, and so on. There has never been room for goofy man doctrines in God's Kingdom, nor will there ever be.

For all believers, here's a principle to keep in mind as you seek God, live in the natural and function in daily life: NEVER ASSUME. Unless it's written in the Word, it's merely man's opinion. That's where erroneous doctrine comes in. It's also why we have denominations today, which are a farce of the original church. One group took a Scripture, didn't balance it against the ENTIRE word, then used it against others and branched off "to do their thing". Not good.

Look up 1 Corinthians 2:6-16, with emphasis on verse 9. You might be a believer who has so much on your plate at the moment that you don't know which end is up, how to do what and when, and you're feeling overwhelmed. Be reminded that you are not exempt from the principles in this passage if you are born again. PERIOD. Stuff...how things feel...why...all irrelevant because someday God's going to blow the lid off of your mind as His goodness is revealed and His purposes behind the stuff of today are revealed. DIG IN. What's God's plan in it? What's He trying to show you? Look through your spirit, not your brain, for the mind of Christ resides in you.

I find it rather ironic how, out of all the beliefs in the world, it almost always comes down to somebody versus Christianity, Christianity on the defense against so-and-so. Yet when it gets down to conversation, the vast majority of the fakes would say they deny (to their own demise and not someone else's--another irony) The Lord into their lives with the reason of, 
Pffff! Nah, that's nothing but a fairy tale." If that were actually true, then why not stay home and watch a movie instead? Why all the effort? Just an observation...
