Day 17 Start With Love

Start With Love

                                 Don’t complicate things. Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” What can we possibly do or say to show our love and appreciation. The answer is found in John 14:15 “if you love me, keep my commandments”. I find that often times people complicate things way too much. We spend countless hours contemplating how to make progress in our lives. Yet many of us have closed ourselves off to the simplest concept of faith and love.  When we are lovers and doers we began to see things shift. The complexity is created in our minds. This challenge has been about training and  shaping the mind but nothing can substitute being in tune with God. Some things you have to know and hold on to. Keeping these principals in our hearts and minds make all the difference in the world. I can recall getting on a bike for the first time. I wasn’t concerned about learning to be disciplined, timely, confident, or any of the things we’ve discussed thus far. My first thought was fear but I had the reassurance of safety knowing my dad was there. It is much like that in life. Sure we need the principles and tools to sharpen our minds and to break unhealthy thoughts but we need to know we dwell in the safety and love of Christ. That in itself is powerful and can advance us to levels we never thought possible. He requires our love and obedience. The rest will come together.

Day 20 God Says So!

God says so! This challenge has examined some things in us that needed to be changed or finessed. We know the mind is truly the battleground!!! The comfort comes from knowing it is indeed a fixed fight. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Is the instruction given clear but your trying to make it logical in your own eyes. When I was a child I can remember asking my mom “why” after being told to do something. Not only would I get the evil eye but she would say “because I said so”. Sometimes the instruction is “God says so”. No logic or reason you can possibly understand. So move because God says so! Start the ministry because God says so!  Trust that your children’s success is written because God says so! That last one was for myself. As we are drawing to a close I want you to know there is no greater resource than God. It’s my passion to instruct people and help
