Magician

A little girl whom I love very much had some question concerning God as we drove home one afternoon.

She was asking questions about how the earth was made; where everything came from.  I shared with her from Genesis:

Then she says…God uses magic!

I almost had a stroke…I very calmly explained to her that God does NOT use magic.

Magic is a trick that is played on us to make us believe that the magician has done something fabulous!  Understand that I’m trying to explain this to a 5 year old. 

Love Heart, God actually has the power to do the miraculous!

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, NIV)

Check out the book of Genesis for the rest of the story and know that our God is not a magician …He is the creator! ~Debra

Some of my sweetest times with the Lord have been through music.   Music speaks to my soul and I worship Him. Worship with me, Glorious Day!! Deb~

God is in Control!

Why do bad things happen to good people? I don’t have an answer.  In the middle of different trials, I will admit I have cried out, “Lord, why did this happen?”  So far, I haven’t come up with any answers, but there is one thing I’m VERY sure of… God is real and in control! 

Nothing happens that He doesn’t know about before hand.  He has a purpose for every experience in our lives no matter how painful it might be.  (Romans 8:28) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

There is no way I can grasp God’s greater plan through your heart ache or loss, but I know that He is with you through your pain, confusion, helplessness, and loss!

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord, As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”(Isaiah 55:8-9)

One of my favorite gospel songs…”My God is Real, real in my soul, my God is real for He has washed and made me whole, His love for me, is like pure gold, my God is real for I can feel Him in my soul.”

I stay rooted in His word and His promise!!  Deb~

Wind turbines can generate electric power anywhere the wind is blowing strong and steady.  The momentum of the moving air propels the large blades that are attached to the source that produces the electric energy.

Prayer generates power when you tap into the right source.  The momentum doesn’t come from our power but the one who’s being prayed to.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he ears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” (1John 5:14-15, NIV)

Prayer is not used as if we have a “secret formula”…it’s not based on how we pray, if we use fancy words, pray in a certain place, or repeat the same prayer over and over (Matthew 6:5).

It’s the source of the power that we should seek…  “Because you have so little faith.  I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.”  (Matthew 17:20, NIV)

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, NIV)

Plug into the Power Source…He’s electrifying.  ~Deb
