Go Fish

imageI’m reading this wonderful book, The Circle Maker, by Mark Batterson.

This morning he’s recounting the time when Jesus and his disciples were in Capernaum and they were asked for the temple tax.

Jesus told Peter to go fishing!  What?  Yep, to go fishing and the first fish he caught he was too look it’s mouth and he would find four-drachma.  He was to use this to pay the taxes.

If I was Peter, I would probably thinking, uh…I’m  a professional fisherman and I’ve never caught one with four drachma in it before.

Long story short, if you’ve caught thousands of fish in your life time, how do you have faith to believe the next one will have a coin in it?  How do you know that God will keep his promise?  “Obey the crazy prompting!”

I Spy….

thI sing in the Choir at church and from my view point you see everything!  Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about.

This Sunday during our Worship; I noticed the children.  They were so happy to be in God’s house and enjoying the music with total abandonment.  It made my heart sing.

I wonder what would happen if we let ourselves go with childlike faith.  Believing that God is who He says He is!   If we surrendered ourselves completely to His promises and rallied in our Salvation.

Through the Holy Spirit within us; we could change the world! ~Debra     th (1)

Matthew 18:3 – And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 

 

King David

th (14)I’ve always marveled at the history of King David.  How a strong, spirit filled shepherd boy slew the giant, Goliath, with a sling and a stone.

He was anointed King of Israel by Solomon but didn’t take the throne for several years later, but David was faithful to God and King Saul.  All the while King Saul was trying to kill him.

When David did take the throne he was a strong and mighty King.  One day, David was in a place he shouldn’t have been and she lusted after another man’s wife.  He sends for her and she becomes pregnant.  In trying to cover up what he had done he had her husband killed.  Discreetly of course, but murder is murder.

David realized what he had done, repented and was forgiven, but still paid the consequences.

Love Heart, through it all, God kept his promises to David.  No matter what you have gone through or might be facing, God is faithful.  He keeps His Promises!

2 Peter 1:4 “And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises.  These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.” (NLT)

David is known as a man after God’s own heart!  ~Debra
