Then GOD said…

Have you ever wondered why the Bible begins with “In the beginning, GOD…?
It seems as though we are being invited to see the Authority of all Creation. It takes our focus right to the Author and His ability to be above every circumstance and before anything else.
Think about this:
GOD was first. GOD just spoke what He wanted and nothing held His plan back from becoming the new ‘normal’. What He wanted He got.
So 6000 years later, He wants you. I think you would be wise to give Him what He wants. If you notice, every time He made something He called it good until GOD made us…then He called it Very Good. His plans are so very good for each of us…as Jeremiah 29:11 promises.
Have a BLESSED Day as you give yourself away to the King of Everything Good!

Prayer Is Invading The Impossible

Jack Hayford’s great book from 1977 reminds us of the significance of prayer as well as the power source.
“If believers will come in prayer to Jesus – who alone is accredited as the official baptizer-with-the-Holy-Spirit – they will receive the timeless promise of divine enablement (Acts 2:39). They will not earn this experience with prayer, but they will receive it through prayer. And while faith is the instrument by which all God’s provision is reached for, experience is the criterion for judging whether faith has been effective.” (Pg 35)

It seems to me that:
We must DECLARE what we have received and then function with this awesome weapon in our lives. If we handle a weapon correctly, learning its power and care, it will be useful against all enemies. Prayer is designed to restore a Kingdom of love, grace, mercy and intimacy to all – not to allow the enemy to restrict us from our rightful relationship with the King.

Wind Power nothing new and yet…

Here in the west, we have admired the way early settlers of this land used wind power to bring water to the surface. The character of the early towers and windmills became part of the fabric of the dry landscape. Weathered and functional, we love the look.

Now tall round white towers with long tapered wings for blades bring wind power into the grid of western power availability. No the wind does not blow all the time but it fills a need in the total power demands of our world.

Don’t you love the aesthetic and the practical look of the old and the new?
